Tip Top Backstage Blog: Semi Final 2

 

Back for another lot of semi finals and once again the backstage holding room is a hive of practising nerves and the occasional Memphis Meltdown! We had a chat to some of our youngest contestants to find out how they are keeping their cool!.

 

Origin Dance Crew

If your talent was an ice cream, what flavour or kind would it be?

Rocky Road because we are hard core and tough as, with a bit of softness.

How many scoops do you think you could legitimately eat in one sitting?

If we didnt have to worry about unhealthy skin and stuff, I would say about 10 each.

If you could assign a flavour to each of the judges and Tamati what would it be and why?

Rachel would be Boysenberry Trumpet because she is elegant, pretty and sweet. Cris would be a Pineapple Fruju because he is exotic and cool. Jason would be a Rocky Road because he is a little bit hard on the inside but a definite softie on the inside.

MDM

If your talent was an ice cream, what flavour or kind would it be?

Fruju because we are sweet and a bit tangy.

How many scoops do you think you could legitimately eat in one sitting?

I reckon maximum 7!

If you could assign a flavour to each of the judges and Tamati what would it be and why?

Cris would definitely chocolate, Rach would be a Lemonade popsicle because she is so pure and sweet. Jason would be a caramel swirl!

What happened the best time you had an icecream?

Pretty much any hot summer day with a Fruju on the beach!

Gabriella Atkinson

Which do you prefer - Cone, Bowl or Stick?

Bowl! Because then you can be as messy as you want

If your talent was an ice cream, what flavour or kind would it be?

Neapolitan because I like to change my style up.

A simple one. What is your favourite flavour?

Pistachio! It is so good.

James Lee

Do you like icecream?

I love it but tonight I have performance so I have to keep warm. But after I will have some.

If your talent was an ice cream, what flavour or kind would it be?

It would be Rocky Road. Rock, Rock Rocky Road!!!

How many scoops do you think you could legitimately eat in one sitting?

If I wouldnt be sick, maybe 4 litres of ice cream. I like it a lot!

What happened the best time you had an icecream?

I was with my friends and we ordered 24 scoops and I ate more than 12 scoops so they were very surprised

Brian and Sarah

Which do you prefer - Cone, Bowl or Stick?

Brian: Im definitely a cone man because I love biting down on the cone after.

Sarah: That is good but the thing with a bowl is that you can pile in as much ice cream as you want!

If your talent was an ice cream, what flavour or kind would it be?

Sarah: I reckon maybe a Rocky Road or a Goody Goody Gumdrops because we are so diverse.

Brian: Yes!

If you could bring back any retro iceblock what would it be?

Sarah: What about Splash?! Ooh yeah!

How would you incorporate that icecream into your routine?

Brian: We are pretty versatile, especially if ice cream is involved.

Sarah: I feel like maybe I have the ice cream and you want to get it, bit of a fight and a swing around.

A simple one. What is your favourite flavour?

Sarah: Cookies and Cream.

Brian: My ultimate favourite is the Mamas Gooey Raspberry Memphis Meltdown. By far the best!

If you could assign a flavour to each of the judges and Tamati what would it be and why?

Sarah: Rachel is pretty saucy, definitely a Mamas gooey Raspberry.

Brian: Jase is a but nutty so he would have to be a Trumpet. And then Cris would have to be something that is quite intimidating&

Sarah: The Big Bikkie! And then Tamati would have to be a Fruju, just so refreshing!
