They have “drawn” a samba to be choreographed by Louis van Amstel. Louis is looking for hot, hot movement and there’s a lot of talk about how hard it is for Chehon, but I never put too much weight in rehearsal footage.
Eh. I guess the rehearsal footage wasn’t lying because Chehon was not so good in this routine. I’m worried because I LOVE him and I really don’t want to see this guy go anywhere anytime soon. Witney killed it (of course), but I’d be shocked if she didn’t.
Nigel is contractually obligated to point out the choreographer and lick his ass a little (as are the other judges), but we’re going to skip that and move right into the DANCER critique. He of course thinks Witney was fantastic (she was), but tells Chehon that he needs to relax more and give in to it. He does acknowledge that Chehon is fabulous at what he does, but he wants him to enjoy himself a little bit more.
Mary puts Witney on the hot tamale train with a first class ticket.
Along with accompanying scream
Kenny thinks that Witney is hot stuff, hotter than Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot. I don’t know that I’d go that far, but she is hot stuff. He agrees with Nigel about Chehon and asks that he trust in himself and the choreographers a bit more.
Next up are Tiffany and George.
I can’t believe they spent all that time on Alexa and Amelia and now you have no idea who I am. Hopefully you’ll think I’m super duper cute.
I think the mustache makes me look older but people tell me I should just accept that I have a baby face and WORK IT.
They get Sonya which should be really good for both of them. Sonya tells us this piece is about a couple that are so much in love that they literally take each other’s breath away. Hope no one asphyxiates!!
LOVE this. They really did seem to melt into each other and it was gorgeous to watch. I think I’ve already watched this about a dozen times. Did I mention I love it? George is one of my favorite guys on the show, not only is he a beast of dancer, but he seems like a sweetheart as well. We haven’t gotten to see too much of Tiffany so far, but I think she’s going to be one to watch as well.
Mary says she is breathless and that they really surrendered themselves to the choreography. They were living it. She tell George he is phenomenal and one of the best dancers in this competition. She also likes Tiffany.
Kenny talks about how generous they were with each other which has to be one of the best compliments you can get as a dancer. He says it reminded him of the pain and glory of youth and it was breathtaking. They spilled it.
And I am not wiping it up.
Nigel talks about how we’re seeing a kinder gentler Sonja; she’s gone from quirky to soft and romantic. He thinks she’s found love in her life.
When will it be MY turn???
Never, Nigel. He also points out that both George and Tiffany dance right through to the tips of their fingers and I wholeheartedly agree with that comment. It’s something I love to see in a dancer and it’s the reason why I keep thinking that they’re much much taller than they actually are.
We’re now moving on to Janaya and Brandon.
Nice to meet you. Maybe if I smile REAL big you’ll like me.
I’m another person you’ve barely met. Why do some people get ALL the camera time?
