Kenny Ortega is this week's guest judge. At least it's someone actually dance related this week, though I do wish they'd get Debbie Allen back soon. I love her comments!
Jenna - Straight to top 10. Really?!
Alan - Looks smarmy to me, sorry Alan, but you're in the bottom every week for a reason.
Malece - Okay solo. Eh? I admit I'm not a huge fan of hers.
Nico - Straight to top 10.
Amy - Kind of a haphazard solo, honestly. Wanted a little more coherence.
Tucker - Graceful solo.
Hayley & Nico - Sean Cheesman Broadway. Whoa, that leg lift flip thing was crazy, looks like she's going to break her leg or something! That was one of the better Broadway routines I've seen, I like when they're darker and not so cheesy. Judges on their feet, wow. These two are a good match.
Malece & Alan - Mandy Moore jazz. Love her dress. Cute dance, not sure it's ultimately very memorable, though. The judges' comments basically make me think they're the ones going home. Lots of negative talk.
Jenna (& Tucker) - Jean Marc paso doble. Since Tucker is injured, all-star Alex Wong steps in instead. Pretty good, though I honestly wasn't super, super impressed. Judges loving it, though.
Makenzie & Paul - Mandy Moore contemporary. Not sure I would get the whole boy from the wrong side of the tracks story if we weren't told it in the opening package. I do get the intention to create pictures with their bodies, though. Judges on their feet, audience going crazy (obvs, they love them some Paul).
Amy & Fik-Shun - Jean Marc Viennese waltz. The spinny move there at the end was pretty cool. Better than I was expecting, honestly. I think Fik-Shun actually did better than I thought he might, though Mary says there were some technical issues, she comments that there is something special about them.
Jasmine & Aaron - NapTab hip hop. That was a pretty fun routine, a lot of energy from those two. They definitely sold it. They judges are very praise-full yet again. They are just full of that tonight, except regarding a particular couple, which pretty much seals their fate even more.
Top 6 (minus Tucker) Guys - NapTab routine. Fun tug of war routine. I feel like I'm calling most of these things tonight "fun," not sure what that means.
Top 6 Girls - Stacey Tookey routine. Love this song, incidentally. Probably my favorite routine of the night, actually. Very beautiful, almost haunting. Makes me think the girls are better than the guys, really.
And, the ones going home tonight are...
Alan & Malece. Pretty much a foregone conclusion, really.
Well, now it's time for the top 10 and the all-stars! About time they started to switch things up, really.
