Mia says the difficulty of the dance is disguised; it’s hard to tell just how hard it is. Also, there is much talk of how wonderful Randi’s butt was and much speculation as to whether or not Amelia’s butt can even compare. Mia thinks a bit of padding may be in order.
How is this routine even remotely right for Will? Why can’t they give these guys something that’s really going to show their chops instead of another “character” piece? I think Nigel is ready to say good bye to this couple.
Eh. I didn’t like this dance all that much the first time around. I really liked Evan, but this wasn’t even one of my favorite routines that he did. I liked this version of the dance even less. It’s a becoming the theme of the evening, isn’t it? I’m so disappointed.
The Butt Dance
This is one of the toughest routines for Nigel to critique because he’s been spanking off to the original since it first aired. Yes, he admits to being obsessed with Randi’s butt for the last three years.
You are so disgusting
He says this is what he loves about Mia though; each piece she choreographs is vastly different than the last. He thinks Amelia should have brought more character to the piece and thinks she spent too much time looking at the floor.
Mary liked it. She doesn’t really add much to what Nigel says. She has not been obsessed with Randi’s butt for three years. Billy thinks it was strong, musical and endearing and that saying that, a little subtlety mightn’t have been a bad thing.
Now it’s Dareian and Janelle’s turn. Maybe they’ll be able to turn this around. Probably not since they’ll be dancing “Dreaming with a Broken Heart” aka the Bed Dance originally performed by Twitch and Kherington in season 4. I wasn’t crazy about this one originally which I guess could mean I’ll like this version more, but I didn’t like the dance itself (and Kherington) which is something a bit different.
But first…their moments. Janelle’s is “Bleeding Love” with Chelsie and Mark (Good one), and Dareian chooses “How it Ends” danced by Neil and Kent. I love both of those dances. I think “How it Ends” may be my favorite Kent dance ever.
Back to the present. Mia rehearses with them and Dareian is nervous and excited about filling Twitch’s shoes. This routine hits home a little with Janelle as she’s going through some relationship issues of her own.
The Bed Dance
I’m not impressed. Like I said, I wasn’t a huge fan of the original, but I think these two made me like it even less.
Doesn’t look like Mia was super thrilled either.
