We get two tappers finding out their fate together and this time neither one makes it. Yeah, this show has not seen a lot of success with the tappers which never fails to irritate me. There are also two steppers (oh yeah) left and they’re going in together as well. So we definitely know one is in and one is out given that there are only two spots left and two other dancers left after them. Devon doesn’t make it through, so Brandon is the nineteenth dancer selected for the season.
Time for the last slot. We’ve got Dragon House Cyrus left and some dude named Feliciano Turk. Are you kidding me? There’s no way in hell they’re going to pass over Cyrus for some dude we haven’t seen before.
And so we have our lone hip hopper.
I’m happy because I really like Cyrus and I’m hoping that he turns out to be a surprise rather than a disappointment. Only time will tell, but I’m sure he’ll have a great attitude while doing it.
These last three guys are doing a Chris Scott piece, using baseball as a theme to tie them all together.
Damn. That had to have been the hardest piece for a choreographer to do tonight. Chris Scott had to take three totally different styles and somehow pull them all together into a cohesive dance. I think he did a great job with this one. I really love how he showcased each of them, giving them a turn to show off what they do best. It may not have been the most technically difficult of the evening, but it was a fun piece to watch.
Nigel and Mary start out their judging time to plug the All-Star game. Nigel tells the guys he thinks they are going to be a challenge for the choreographers, but he doesn’t care. He tells them to bring it. Mary thinks they hit it out of the park and they are three of her favorite dancers in the top twenty.
So that’s the top twenty, Gasmi! Are you exci…..oh…wait…..we’ve got three more routines! That’s right, we’re getting a top ten girls number, a top ten guys number, and then MIA MICHAELS is choreographing the top twenty group number. HELLS YEAH!
But first, a plug for National Dance Day which now includes a Zumba routine. Seriously? I just can’t.
Let’s get to the group numbers. Ladies first. They’re performing a Travis Wall routine with a special appearance by a door. Travis tells us the door represents the gateway to the afterlife. Or to the show. To their afterlife on the show. The show is like getting into heaven?
Such a pretty piece. It’s a typical Travis piece, but I think it works well with this group of girls. I find it interesting that Alexa is somewhat featured in it given her history with Travis, but I’m sure they’ll never address that on the show.
Cat thinks it was a slice of heaven and Nigel says it looked absolutely beautiful. He blows smoke and rainbows up Travis’ ass and then tells the girls to enjoy being told how great they are this week because that will all change next week.
Time for the guys. Sonya gets another chance to show HER stuff, choreographing a shirtless ode to male aggression. Or something like that.
Honestly, those hideous pants were so distracting, I’m not even sure how I feel about the dance itself. Yikes. It had a sort of tribal feel to it that was really cool, but again, the pants and that weird belt thing kept pulling my attention away from the dancing.
Nigel doesn’t like the pants either and then makes a comment about Will in them and I’m thinking he really has it in for the poor guy at this point. This is the second time he’s made some comment toward the poor guy. Shut up, Nigel.
