I΄ve been in and out of hooping.org all day too see the results but I don΄t see them so I wonder where the information is?

I honestly thought you would get through at least another round Shannon, this challenge was perfect for you and you did an excellent job. I did not vote for you just because I "know" you, I voted for you because I looked at all the videos and decided that you deserved it most. There were more that was good, but I thought that you were definitely among op seven as I understand three were excluded this week...

I am so happy that you made the effort and got so far, you are an inspiration and I do think that you got hooping.org a new audience that did not know it before.

As I watch a lot of hooping videos these days I have found that it is kind of boring to watch... unless there is a stroy or theme or something else that catches my eye or imagination... "just" hooping skill is not enough.

You got that extra dimension it is something about your rythm that is so beautiful. And imagine – winning Hooping Idol a year after you were new-comer of the year... what would be left to aim for emoticon

Keep on hooping for us and to keep yourself happy!

Shannon, I was talking about you today. About how weird it is that I'm so excited for you, a virtual stranger, never met, probably will not... yet I was hoping for you, excited, hooping with you on your videos in my heart and mind. So very proud of your courage and willingness to hoop outside of your box.

I am sure you are disappointed but don't fall back into "old stuff". You took a huge challenge one I must say most of us would be too afraid to face, and you faced it... excelled and grew in that challenge.

Don't let anyone or even yourself diminish that! Shine on Shannon!

Shannon we are proud of you and making it to the top ten, worldwide, is a big deal! That alone is cause to celebrate. I appreciate that you had your goal set higher but you are right up there among the stars! As I am watching American Idol come to a climax I can't help but remember a lot of the most successful contestants were in the top ten but didn't make Idol; while some of the Idol's haven't been as memorable. Trust me; your "beautiful" video is "memorable" and so are you! I'm with Shellie; go have some fun!

Shannon, you should be very proud of yourself. You did something that most people never do and you made it farther than most people would even dream. Thank you for sharing your journey. We're all proud of you! And just think of what you can do next year...
(Now you can relax and hoop for fun, no pressure of shooting and editing. Go have some fun today.)

Has anyone watched the results yet? I don't want to because I'm sure I didn't make it. I'd rather hear from a friend than someone else. In my head it'd be a softer badness.

It is sort of what I hoped you would try to do - tell your story with hooping. It is really inspirational and with the short time and resources you have had, you did an amazing fantastic job!

I have started to look through the others as well although I will have to wait until I get to a faster connection... but so far you are really superiour because you have a story. I don΄t know if that is enough, if it is about the hooping skill there are those who have come further than you but there videos might be beautiful, but they don΄t express a story like you do. You prove my point - that the most important is not to show your skill but to show your creativeness and willingness to give the audience an experience!

again - it is really inspirational! I will of course vote for you!

Shannon, you are passionate about hooping and what it has done for you. Your passion is contagious. So is your smile.

Think about what you want to say through the song, the dance, your heart to show how hooping has brought shine and hope into your life.

Good luck! Best Wishes. May God bless you.

I agree with Shelli - this time it is you they want, not your costume or background. Oh...then I start imagine a rainstruck window and somebody outside looking in at the happy hoopers...sort of. ... I am thinking of the "elephant" that got out of the competition as well as the "living room" hooper... somehow you have to create the illusion but is has not to be loaded with things, just not distracting from you story!

It is really hard, I will be impressed with whatever you come up with because my brain is really blank!

I agree, Shannon. I think this week, you should definitely keep it simple. Sounds like they're looking for intimacy on this one, so I bet they want some close-ups and you looking at the camera, us seeing your face, that kind of thing. They sure talk about that a lot. Tell your story, give it a beginning, a middle and an end. We're cheering for you!

Now, I don't want to do any elaborate costumes with this song. I have nicer tops to wear but I think a fancy smancy costume would detract from my story. Does anyone else agree with me? My friends keep telling me to come look at their stuff and what not. I'll be doing my hair but black yoga pants + nice tops.

The turnaround time on these are so crazy fast and we're in the "everything happens in the last couple of weeks of school" time. I'd love to get down there and help shoot this. Aaargh!
I think they're really gonna be looking for story this time, for sure. Shannon, can you add voiceovers? Because it'd be really cool to hear some of your story, while we're watching it too. Could be really cool.

You are probably right - that poeple looking like you tend to vote for you - and that is great! I was talking to this smashing blond golfpro the other day who lost one of her legs due to cancer a year ago. And before she lost that leg she was a smashing blong girl playing golf on an elite level - but yu know we are swedish and there is MANY smashing blondes aoround... but one legged? No - she has an Unique Selling Point there adn can use it to promote her company.

When I browse around there are a lot of skinny girls doing a lot of tricks with their hoops – and I yawn myself through most of their videos. In your circus video I really think you used your uniqueness for the best - the stockings, the hair the...you!.

Thing is, if you lose your weight I think you still will be kind of outstanding because you do have a lot of personality and charisma. And that will not go away when the pund does...

I work with this "amateur-cirque-the-soleil"- people... we have acrobats, jugglers, animal tricks etc. in our performances (so far I am the talker but I dream about being the hooper...) and working with creating acts it is so obvious that it is not primary about skill. Skill is good and the performer has to learn a lot of skill. But skill itself is not entertaining, it is not a "show" – once you have seen one vortex you have seen them all... once you have seen one going-from-waist-to-shoulder-and-back – you have seen them all. It΄s the context, the story, the show that matters.

You have a lot of "ooomph" in your body moves - it will be really exciting to see how you can combine your hoop skill, your body rythm and your personality... emoticon

I think it is not easy.

You have done great so far - the best of luck!

Is "Beautiful" the one with "words can΄t bring me down"?...Excellent!

WOOT!!!!! Grats, Shannon!
Sure is a different category this week. Cut to lots of close-ups. Sounds like they're gonna be looking for that and they really liked that in your first week. You totally got this one down!

Wow - you got through! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Instead of working I spent this morning looking at the other "circus" themes and you did a really good job, Shannon! I also looked at the disco week as I haven΄t done that before and I can see that you really stepped it up!

Next weeks theme should fit you like a glove - so far I think your are one of the most sensual and intimate hoopers among the Idols!

Can΄t wait to see what you do! The whole thing is very inspiring.

It is obviously not meant to be that I should see the other contestants doing circus... I am at work and planned to see some before I left for home but the site is down... and at home it is too slow.

Well I saw yours Shannon and it was amazing!

the link won't work for me Shannon - I'll go to hooping.org and see if I can find it

Our computers had a bit of melt down at work and for some reason I can't get on the link, even by searching. AUGH!!

How long is the voting open?

Vote... must vote...

This morning I thought I had missed voting for you shannon - but then I realized that I am in a different timezone and it is still tuesday over there... feel a little bad though that I have not even looked at the other videos, my connection is too slow, but I did look at yours before I voted and I think it is creative and fun.

I will look at the others at work and hope that you get through - they need you in that competition!

I am SO sorry I didn't message you, Joy! I wasn't sure on your schedule. I'm super worried. If I make it to the next round, a semi-pro photographer will help me tape! SO I HAVE TO MAKE IT TO NEXT WEEK. Although I might be going this weekend to Paige's cause I really want to spin my fire fans and fire hoop!

Shannon,
I love the video; good luck today! I'm so bummed! Just checked Paige's page to share with a friend last night. Missed the announcement about your taping because I don't check every week!! I hate that I missed a chance to be in your video! I have a cool clown costume! No one but us would have known who I was! How cool that the others showed up for support and to round out the theme. You are simply AWESOME!

Slow down and take a deep breath.

You looked like you were having fun in the video. It was clever and you did some great hooping.

It's easy to go over and over things we do and we get more and more critical as we focus on the "errors". But it really doesn't help, just causes more stress, anxiety and yuck! But do learn from the experience what you need.

It could be that if you corrected the errors or stuff you don't like as you reflect on it - might have wrecked the flow you were creating.

You have my vote Shannon. I'm pulling for you to make the next round. I am in awe of your talent and courage to get out there and compete for the Hooping Idol -- you are amazing!

Know why I should be hooping idol? How cool would it be to have a plus size hooper? That'd be two years in a row the "outlier" of hooping won! (man, plus sized hooper). That'd be incredible. Yep.
