We follow Gene with another ballroom dancer, Lindsay Arnold. She comes from a family of dancers and tells us she brings other styles into her ballroom dancing.
She’s good, just nowhere near as good as Witney, in my opinion. Nigel really likes her – he thinks she brings both the technique and performance. Mary says she reminds her of Julianne Hough. Adam says she had him as soon as she came out. He thinks she is great. And so, she’s going to Vegas.
This leads into a ballroom montage, so at least we know that the ballroom contingency has shown up SOMEWHERE. The montage o’ballroom leads us to yet another cute little blonde girl; Mariah Spears.
But this blondie isn’t like the rest we’ve seen so far. This girl is a krumper.
LOVE HER!! I don’t know if she can hang dancewise in this competition, but DAMN that girl went HARD.
Adam says he knows she’s not the first girl krumper to ever audition for the show, but he thinks she is the best one that has. She blew his mind.
Mary says it was huge surprise because she’s so cute and sweet and then she was rough and tough in her dancing. She finds her to be fascinating. She’d like to see more dance vocabulary, but she really enjoyed her. Nigel thinks she was really strong as well and wants to see what she can do in choreography.
Time for another profile story. This one revolves around b-boy Murphy Yang. His father disowned him and kicked him out of the house. He also never supported his dancing. I feel like we’ve heard this story already. Only it was a girl who ended up living with her best friend. There’s no best friend for Murphy. He’s got a girlfriend, and in case you were wondering how you’re supposed to feel when he starts talking about her, the music swells as if this were all part of the latest three hanky tear jerker starring Rachel McAdams or some other chick that has never had a problem getting a guy.
By the time we get to the end of the guy’s video intro I’m thinking he’s gonna blow us away with his moves.
Doesn’t happen. He’s good, but he’s nowhere near good enough to have warranted spending that much time on him. Grrrrr. He also wrote “Vegas?” on his tummy. Pleh.
Nigel was entertained but says it wasn’t really enough moves for him. Mary agrees; she thinks he’s charming but there’s not enough vocabulary there for her. Adam says he’s that guy whose love of it all really transcends the technique. He thinks there’s a lot of untapped dancer there.
Nigel wants to know if he’s got “Choreography” written on his back because that is where he’s going.
And that’s where we’re heading now. As always, the dancers have an hour to learn the routine and then it’s time to face the music. Murphy gets cut. And goes outside to cry on his girlfriend’s shoulder.
Krumper Mariah DOES makes it through as well as ten other dancers.
Day two starts with Dareian Kujaua, a contemporary dancer with really pointy nipples if we’re to listen to Nigel. He thinks Dareian is gonna poke someone’s eye out with them. I’m just glad Dareian is a guy; I can’t imagine what Nigel’s comment would have been for a girl with those nips.
Love him. He has got some serious power behind his moves. There’s some sloppiness there, ESPECIALLY in his feet, but I really liked this guy.
Nigel thinks he is fabulous, but wants to know if his teacher gives him a hard time about his feet. Yup. Nigel tells him that that is one thing that lets him down. Mary agrees but says he’s got plenty that other dancers that have perfect feet don’t have, including awesome abs.
