Most people do falsetto worse than when they sing in real tone, and that is expected from Darren. It is still enjoyable and acceptable, so the singing part is not the big deal for me in this song. But it would've have been better if Harry and HeMo have a solo line. They look like background dancers now. Background dancers.
Lighting is ok for me! I have no idea why the people upstairs say that they can barely seen anything, I get the video clear and bright. As I have always thought, disco balls are annoying . Darren's dancing is ok, he could catch up to the other two. HeMo and Harry is as always, obviously superb. But their dance moves aren't very challenging (probably to blend with Darren), so it makes the whole performance a lot less attractive. It wasn't anything 'very good' or those big-productions, but being a small number (a rare case that Darren solo's a small number) it was good.

i read some comments about the camera-work. If you've seen the movie saturday night fever, than you'll understand the shots they did, the camera-shots are as they shot for the movie.
Also liked the dancing a lot, the moves they're making are the real 80's disco moves. Nowadays they might look a bit weird and dull perhaps, but it's how they (we) used to dance in the 80's.

Well if they hadn't put 2 (!) of their better dancers in wheelchairs (both Dianna and Kevin are very good if not even excellent dancers aswell) they could have atleast 8 good dancers in ND for nationals (+Naya, Amber who are quite good as well, atleast in TT numbers).
This honestly makes me wish even harder for a Brittana/Klaine/Tike dance number, because having the six best dancers in ND together would be kind of amazing.
(And before anyone asks - yes, I have a background in dance, and yes, I can back up my assessment of various peoples' dancing talent or lack thereof if there's interest, but I won't in this post.)

Anyway I loved it. It was a delight to see this unusual line up of people and the dancing was great. Darren really kept up..it doesn't matter if anyone thought the moves were easy. As I am I can't do any of them so to me I have nothing but admiration for anyone who could keep up with two professional dancers- complex moves or not.
Great number. I have no complaints.

Darren, when in group performances is probably in the top half of dancers. He's neither the best (even excluding Harry and HeMo) nor the worst (ANYWHERE near the worst. Not when you have Cory, Mark, Lea and Chris there!) He can follow choro and when in the group looks good doing it.
Having him dance with Harry and HeMo though he is shown up. Badly. There are parts of the dance that he is half a beat behind them in choro) That is passable dancing. And these are pretty basic dance moves. (excluding the mid air split, which I did state was awesome athletic skill. It's not really a dance move though) So yes in this context his dancing is passable. It's not great, but it does the job.
I'm liking this more and more. Can't wait to hear the rest of the songs LOOOOOOVE me some disco!

Good performance by Darren, great choreography and nice to see a lot of those iconic moves in there even if a few were dropped. Dunno about the falsetto, I mean he recreated it sure but I've always thought it'd be cool to see a straight take on a Beegees song.

I haven't heard the rest but what's the worst so far.
Any song Cory is on.
I still don't think Darren should have had to sing it in falsetto (he would have sounded better singing it in a key he's more comfortable in) but he's listenable.

Haven't heard the other songs yet though.
