It was a bit of a foregone conclusion tonight as to who the two dancers going home would be. I have to say I would've only been shocked had it not been the two of them. I'm talking about Jose and Billy, of course. The only other shocking moment of the night was when Lauren was in the bottom over Robert, which I did not expect. I think the only way either Jose or Billy may have been safe is if Adechike had magically ended up in the bottom. And really, is he bribing people? Who votes for him week after week? I'm sorry that I don't like him, but there you have it. I don't.
Knowing the end result made the rest of the episode feel rather superfluous, though I did really enjoy Mia's opening number set to Sting's "Everything She Does is Magic." I have to say I much prefer Mia as a choreographer than as a judge. Her choreography is consistently great. Otherwise, there were some other guest performances by some of the people from Step Up 3D, some random singer Christian something, and Allison Iraheta from American Idol. Not gonna lie, I fast forwarded through the musical performances. I just don't care. This is why I don't watch American Idol. But we didn't get a reintroduction to any of the all-stars tonight! There's not much time left - what about Allison, Dominic, Ade, & Kathryn?
I do want to comment that despite not being all that sad over seeing Jose or Billy go, I will miss seeing Billy's always impressively creative solos. Tonight was no exception in that department. I didn't want it to end!
Tonight was the last night that the judges were in control of the who was sent home. Next week, with only four dancers left, it will be all up to America. Now that Lauren has been in the bottom three, I think it's even more clear that Kent has it in the bag.
