Mary talks about footwork and about how Anya was incredible and the reason the whole hot tamale train bullshit got started. I’d be mad at Anya, but it’s not her fault. Cole is NOT getting a ride on the train with Anya; she is leaving him on the platform.
Benjamin thinks he did great and that he partnered really, really well. His only comment is to think about more movement quality. Nigel adds that he’d like to Cole play more to Anya and less to the audience.
We’re going back to the girls for the next routine. It’s Lindsay’s turn, and she’s been partnered with Jakob Karr for a Spencer Liff (yay!) Broadway routine. It’s a play on light and dark and Lindsay’s shadow coming to life and apparently her shadow is actually a dude. They key here is their synchronization; they can’t see each other while he’s behind the screen, but if they’re off it’s not gonna look good.
LOVE this! The movement is very Fosse-esque, which I ADORE, and they both did really well with it. Jakob is just as incredible as he’s always been, and even if Lindsay wasn’t phenomenal, this style is suited to her what with her legs for days and all.
Nigel gives props to Spencer and then asks Jakob to show him a pointed foot. He thinks his feet are magnificent and he had forgotten what a neat dancer he is. He thinks Lindsay is wonderful and he can’t believe she was almost going home a couple of weeks ago. She still has a lot to learn, but fabulous.
Mary thinks Jakob is from another dance planet and she puts Lindsay on the hot tamale train.
Someone needs to get me an Advil before I pimp slap this crazy ass bitch.
Of course Benjamin thinks they were wonderful because he thinks everyone is wonderful tonight. If it wasn’t for his accent I would be over him by now.
It’s Will’s turn and he gets Kathryn for his all-star, and a Bollywood routine by Nakul (DUH). I’d make a sacrifice to Vishnu for a different Bollywood choreographer.
The story for this dance is that will is a snake charmer and Kathryn is the snake. There’s much goofiness during rehearsal and Will is skating dangerously close to annoying me with his over abundance of personality. Honestly, I’m surprised he hasn’t gone the way of Robert for me yet. Maybe it’s because everyone else is so DEVOID of personality that too much is better than nothing. Or something like that.
Eh. I could do without all the mugging. I do find it pretty impressive that Will can keep up with Kathryn in the preciseness and tempo of the moves here given that he’s SO much bigger than she is.
