It’s so much fun to start out the evening already annoyed. Isn’t it just so interesting that Cyrus ends up getting one of the ballroom dances that you can fake your way through? How FORTUNATE that he didn’t get a samba or a cha cha, or god forbid, a quickstep. It’s not that I didn’t expect it, but it still irritates the crap outta me.
Nigel gives Cyrus his usual “lower your shoulders” critique and then spends the rest of his time talking about how Cyrus deserves to be there.
Who are you trying to convince Nigel? Us or yourself?
Of course he thinks Eliana is gorgeous (and she is), but I can’t stand how he refuses to give Cyrus any sort of real critique. Asshole.
Mary tells that this must have been as hard for him as skinny dipping with snapping turtles, but he did it. WRONG! Then she compliments him on his staccato movement, which is also a crock of shit. She loves Eliana, DUH.
Rob loves how Eliana knows how to just throw away all the technique and just perform. Yes, that’s because she actually HAS technique to begin with!! He adds Cyrus into that and says how great it is to see him in the moment.
Next up is Tiffany with her all-star partnered dance of the night. She has been paired with Will Wingfield and they will be working with Sonya Tayeh on a contemporary routine. Yay! I adore Will and I think this has the potential to be a really great pairing.
Sonya tells us that the piece is meant to show how far Tiffany has come in the competition. Tiffany is emotional as she tells us that Sonya is a huge part of why she is still here because Sonya made her believe she could do more than she ever thought she could. She really is adorable.
This was really lovely. There were a couple of odd moments in the partnering where transitions seemed a bit off, but other than that, I thought they did a good job here.
Mary screams. She tells Tiffany that she is the epitome of a great dancer and is fabulous. Then she tells Will she’s always happy to see him
Especially without a shirt. What are you doing later?
Rob thinks Sonya is spectacular and that Tiffany is beautiful and fearless. Nigel compliments Will as well and then tells Tiffany that he’s been underselling her when he calls her the girl next door because no one as lovely as her ever lived next door to him.
Tiffany fights the urge to barf.
