Nigel points out that if they hadn’t saved Chehon and Witney last week, we would have never seen this performance. Touché, format changer!
Am I not an awesome god?
Moving on to our final couple, Eliana’s secret is that she once slept with, rolled over on, and killed a pet bird. Perhaps she shouldn’t choose to co-sleep when she has a baby.
And my secret is that I have these ear gauges to distract you from my wonky eye.
Cyrus’s secret is his disgusting bellybutton. Take my word for it.
I’m not going to show you a picture, ‘cause it is gross. I’m not too fond of bellybuttons in general, and do not believe they should be shown on prime time television. Surprise, they got hip-hop. Way to carry Cyrus a little further along, SYTYCD.
Of course, they kill it, because this is the mainstay of Cyrus’s wheelhouse and because Eliana is a consummate professional and can do anything. It also helps that NappyTab included a few ballet moves incorporated in the choreography to prove they weren’t playing favorites.
Unfair genre stacking, but still wicked awesome performance.
The judges’ panel give them a standing ovation, natch … this IS the final performance of the night and they’re not going to save a mediocre salsa for the final performance. They all love both of them.
Time for Bottom 3:
Girls: Amber, Lindsey, Eliana
Boys: George (no!), Brandon, Dareian
Remember how they didn’t
have time for want to see anyone dance for their lives last week? Well, this week, they want to see Amber and Eliana and Brandon and Dareian dance for their lives. Guess we know Lindsey and George are safe. Eliana’s solo is vastly superior to Amber’s.
I got this.
Brandon’s step piece is entertaining, but Team Jacob Super Fan #1 is amazing.
Step on this, Brandon.
Before the big announcement of who’s going home (I think we all know who the two are going to be), we get to watch the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater perform “The Hunt”, choreographed by Robert Battle. It was good, but it didn’t make me feel anything
… except love for their red-lined black maxi-skirts.
Who’s going home?
The hairstylist and the …
Step Up Extra
Poor Amber and Brandon. I think the judges made the best decision they could, although my preference was for Lindsey to take her smile back to Utah or wherever she calls home. Remember, the Olympic Hiatus lasts ‘til August 15th, when Potty Mouth will be back with your Top 14. Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend.
