Benjamin and Mary both love the routine and I think that Mary may have spiked Benjamin’s drink with a little of her crazy juice. Nigel tells Will that he needs to calm the fuck down. But then he tells himself to shut up and while I’m all for Nigel shutting up, I’d also like Will to calm down so it’s a conundrum.
Time to see what Cyrus gets this week. He’s been paired up with Jamie which is a good choice since she was partnered with Hok during their season, so she’s got some experience with the hip hop boys. They’ll be dancing a contemporary number choreographed by Travis.
Travis tells us the story of this piece are that Cyrus and Jamie are the last two people on earth. And……..? I guess that’s it. Just the last two people on earth, dancing around and whatnot. Travis makes sure to tell us that this dance is superhard and he’s totally impressed with how fast Cyrus is learning the choreography. I’m thinking it may be because the superhard parts are actually Jamie’s.
So. Here’s the thing with this one. Cyrus did do a good job, but he was really more of a forklift than anything else. I’m not gonna knock or downplay the lifting stuff because he does do a good job with that, but Travis doesn’t give him much more to do. Shocking.
They’re really doing a disservice to the guy in my opinion. He came in with people LOVING what he does and how much heart he brings to it all. But by not challenging him and not giving him an opportunity to rise to the occasion, they’re screwing him over. I think at this point we all can tell he’s not going to be the next Twitch, but I also feel like they haven’t really even given him a chance to do that. It’s really frustrating.
It gets even more frustrating as the critiques begin. Benjamin loves Cyrus’ raw energy and thinks he did really well with the partnering he loves Cyrus’ raw energy. Nigel tells Benjamin that when he cast Cyrus on the show he got a lot of letters complaining about him taking a guy that can only do one thing.
Of course you and I know that this is really Nigel’s way f lecturing us because he’s decided that we don’t properly appreciate what Cyrus brings to the table. As if we haven’t seen him pull this shit year after year after year.
He was just disgusted by those letters because he doesn’t think that we all understand what dancing is all about.
