All right guys, we’re down to the wire: On last night’s episode we found out which dancers are one step closer to the finale. That said, I expected things to be more high-energy than they were last night—the choreography just felt a little bit safe. Maybe everyone’s saving their energy for the end. That said, I still found lots to like. Read on for my Top 5 moments.
I think that counts as a moment. And if it doesn’t, her hair sure needs it’s own moment—you can’t really contain a perm like that. Between Ray Leeper’s weird 90s club-kid jazz routine and Jessica and Casey’s Disco routine, choreographed by Doriana Sanchez, I definitely preferred the Disco hair. Hello Olivia Newton John!
Ricky’s Solo Performance
Not that I needed a reminder that he’s perfect, but—oh yeah, he’s perfect. I’m not entirely sure what happened, but I think it was something like Ricky repeatedly levitating off the floor and just hanging out in the air.
Valerie and tWitch’s Wedding Dance
I love me some old school hip-hop, and Will “WilldaBeast” Adams did not fail me. I loved watching Valerie break it down, and I expected nothing less since we all know that tWitch brings out the best in his partners.
Jacque and Will’s Contemporary Routine
Even though the ending of Sean Cheeseman’s contemporary routine was a little—sorry—cheesy, I loved the amazingly unique way they were moving with that ball! Will’s roll over the ball, which looked completely weightless, and the partnering in the rest of the dance which looked completely effortless, were both lovely. As we say at DS, snaps for no arbitrary props!
Zach and Fik-Shun’s Rorschach Dance
Okay, that was amazing. This one was easily the best dance of the night, and I was really surprised at Zach’s swagger. He was a little bit sloppy in Phillip Chbeeb’s choreography, but it didn’t matter because the concept—making the equal and opposite shapes of an ink-blot—and the overall execution were just so darn good.
Now we just need to batten down for the final episode, try not to get too emotional, and make it through next week. We said goodbye to Jacque and Casey. Zach, Ricky, Jessica and Valerie went on the finale. I’m not sure I’m surprised, but at this point everyone is so good it just comes down to personality and voter appeal. See you next week!
P.S. Did I not say that Jessica has what it takes to go all the way?
