ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I don’t appreciate the fact that she’s stealing _all_ of my moves.
Every single one.
Oh, YOUR moves, eh? I disagree. Those are mine!
Awesome. Reminds me of when I tried to dance to the Santana guitar solos – particularly Toussaint L’ouverture.
But she’s so much better than I ever was. I am jealous, and I want to meet this girl.
While she doesn’t have a future in fine art performance, if I were a local DJ in her hometown, I would gladly pay for her to come and dance to my sets.
I don’t know, that might be hazardous. It looks like anyone within a 10 m radius of her would be severely injured. Of course that doesn’t change the fact that I’m in love with her.
They left me hanging! Did she get three stars or not????
@princessalex: Unconfirmed info in a blog post: “Happiness earned herself two gold stars that put her through, although Adam Garcia changed his red to gold when he learns that she took 34 years to choreograph her routine.”
Damned straight, she dances from her heart. You dance, girl! :D
please make it stop
Ok, I’m going to be the dick here and say it – I didnt like it at all. I clicked in the hope that it would turn out to be another whatshername, with the old ugly woman with the amazing voice, or the opera dude before that.
Unfortunately it was neither suprisingly elegant, nor particularly expressive – all she did was spazz out for 1.5 minutes. Yeah yeah, I get the scatman-theme, but if that was rehearsed at all it was crap, simple as that. Since it most likely wasnt, its basically the teenager that cant even *speak* without going all over the place turning up to the televised singing audition and “giving it all”.
Because she is, in comparison, rather old and unfortunate looking, we are set up to root for her.
I don’t, and I don’t appreciate being manipulated that way. Takes away from the truly moving wierdos.
Well, she did make me laugh, but would it kill them to make some decent TV every once in a while? You know, with a script and drama and everything?
I agree about the decent tv bit- a minute and a half of pure tedium before we get to the bit we actually want to see. If that’s the whole show- where no less than half of each show is unenetertaining drivel- why do people watch?
@Baldhead: Two words: TiVo, fast-forward. Okay, three words.
She got two stars, but then the third judge changed his mind and gave her her third star when he found out she had been perfecting that routine for 34 years.
If a system is given nothing but a steady supply of self-affirmation, it will never see an impetus to cure its ills.
I love her. TV is so sanitized nowadays even fictional stars on shows are too superhuman to be human. We need more real people on the TV.
Totally. She’s so much more enjoyable to watch than those plastic judges trying to figure out the appropriate expression to wear.
Happiness is the most beautiful person I’ve seen on TV in awhile.
Hey, I want this guy to dance with â€œHappiness.â€
I don’t want to be within earshot when her achilles tendon asplodes.
She’s like Susan Boyle, only dancier and spazzier.
Wow, someone quoted Ishkur on here? I must be in the right company.
She was awesome. That is what dancing’s about.
