Rob says his height is unbelievable and he totally gets why Stacy was so excited during rehearsal. He also thinks Allison is fabulous.
Nigel thinks Allison should be an actress (and enlists Rob to second that). He thinks Chehon really came alive in this performance. WOW.
One of my favorite things about the finale is that we get to see the girls dance together and the guys dance together.
So Eliana and Tiffany are teamed up with Ray Leeper for a Broadway/Burlesque number that incorporates a pole. Eliana is super excited when she see the pole; after all, she is a pole dancing ballerina, so it looks like they kept that in mind when picking out this routine. You know, part of me thinks I should be bitching about the fairness of this, but mostly I’m curious to see what Ray comes up with here.
“When You’re Good to Mama” is the perfect song for this type of dance! It’s a cool idea, but it’s not really my favorite routine that Ray has done for the show. I think I would have rather seen him choreograph a straight jazz/Broadway dance for the same song without the pole gimmick. They did a good job with it though.
Another standing ovation from the judges. Cat knows she’s going to regret it, but she goes to Nigel first.
I think I got some sperm in my eye!
He’s so gross. He tells Cat he need a moment, she should come back to him.
So we go to Rob. He says he keeps trying to picture Queen Latifah doing that and Mary cackles. Bet she won’t be cackling when Queen Latifah shows up there and kicks her sparkly ass!
Rob loved it and says it was fierce. Mary thinks they are extraordinary young women and it was just great.
Nigel is trying to think of something he can say without getting into trouble. Then he asks Marat if any Kirov ballerinas do that; Marat yells out that they can. Foiled by ballet Nigel! So he makes some comment about the last time he saw something like that he was with Randy Jackson. I’m sure Randy really appreciates you making him out to be as big a perv as you are.
Why you gotta do me like that dawg?
YUCK. I feel like I need to take a shower.
Cyrus’ solo is up next.
It’s good. Of course it’s good; it’s what the guy does and he does do it well. I can’t be mad at him for showing off what he does in a solo. What I can do is blame the show for not ever really trusting him enough to give him the opportunity for a breakout performance or even to really GROW. It’s the thing that frustrates me the most about this season and seeing his journey clips makes me even more pissed off about it because I loved him SO MUCH during the entire audition process.
Sorry Cyrus, it’s not YOUR fault.
