LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!! You tell her Debbie!! Rachel promises to be back but doesn’t making any promises about putting on more clothes and dancing more.
In sharp contrast to Rachel’s writhing is Amelia’s solo.
This girl is really a fabulous dancer, but there is something about her that grates on my nerves. Even with that being said, I can’t deny that the girl has got some dancing chops on her. Everyone except Nigel votes yes to keep her. Nigel says he’s voting no because she needs to bring what she does in her solos to other people’s choreography. She promises they will see a different animal tomorrow.
And now…the time has come…..for the group round. I HATE this round. It’s specifically designed to create drama just like the group round is on Idol. BUT the difference is that on IDOL they’re singing a song that’s already created NOT being asked to compose something new!! Here these dancers are being asked to choreograph a routine NOT learn a group number and perform it. It’s not called So You Think You Can Choreograph!!
And honestly, I’ve known some really fabulous dancers that can’t choreograph to save their lives and choreographers who can barely do their own choreography. It’s a different animal. But there’s no sense continuing to complain about it because it’s going to happen whether I agree with it or not.
Cat tells them that the big twist this year is that they get to pick their own groups. Great. It’s like the dance version of picking a dodgeball team. Thankfully they don’t show us the picking process and just get right into the groups working on their routines once they’ve randomly picked their music.
As we’ve all come to expect, there are tears, there is yelling. Bacon Girl returns from the hospital and has to go begging for someone to let her into their group. She ends up in a group that includes Aussie ballet dancer Daniel Baker and they’re not thrilled since they’ve been working for a while and now have to start over.
They end up going to bed and Daniel remarks that he knows this is never a good idea. I agree with him and am now worried for his safety in the competition. Time for them to perform.
Hot mess. They are not together nor is what they’re doing very interesting. Bacon Girl gets cut which I think is sort of bullshit. Instead of forcing her to go into another group they should have passed her through to the next round once she got the okay to dance.
More and more people get cut from the group round and then we get to a group calling themselves the “High Schoolers” because there’s one girl (Aubrey Klinger) in the group and they’re all taking her to prom. Or something like that.
That was actually really good. The judges think so as well praise Aubrey when they find out it was her concept. Nigel calls her a mini Mia Michaels and Aubrey LOVES that. I dunno Gasmi, something about her is rubbing me the wrong way. Did you all think she seems a little full of herself there? Maybe it’s the exhaustion or something.
The final group calls themselves the “Wolfpack” and includes Big Bird lookalike Adrien Lee, Alexa Adams, and Dres Reid. Debbie thinks they’re lovely, but Sir BitchyPants does NOT. He says he doesn’t want to be bitchy (HA!) but he feels like the lights are on and no one is home with Alexa; he’s not moved by her beauty anymore. Mary agrees and starts yelling at her as well. Alexa starts to break down crying a little and that makes everyone happy because apparently this is what they’ve been looking for from her.
Time for a swim break!
We’re now down to sixty one dancers and it’s time for the ballroom round. Jason Gilkison is here to break down a cha cha for the remaining dancers. Jason tells us you can’t fake chemistry in this dance. He wants the girls to be sassy, cheeky, and sexy and the guys have got to be there for the girls all the time.
