Let's not pretend like we were watching last night's results show for any reason other than to see Allison Holker and Maddie Ziegler perform "Chandelier." (Spoiler: It was amazing.) But since a little delayed gratification never hurt anybody, can we focus for one second on Julianne Hough's scandalous costume and super-sexy dance with the male pros?
I always like it when judges get up and dance (remember that time on "SYTYCD" when Nigel got up onstage and tapped with the kids from Debbie Allen Dance Academy?). It reminds us why they're sitting behind the table in the first place.
Then, we got a very dramatic trio to a very charming song: Nico and Vinz performed "Am I Wrong" while three of the pros danced. Now that "DWTS" is experimenting with contemporary dance, I wonder if we'll see the same growth in the pros as we do with contemporary dancers on "SYTYCD" who are asked to perform ballroom routines.
Okay, so about Maddie and Allison...
AMAZING! Their energy was totally explosive, and Maddie looked more polished and mature than I've ever seen her (maybe being around Allison will do that to you). Congrats, ladies, on an excellent performance.
Sadly, we said goodbye to Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess. But you guys, next week is movie themed! I can only hope that we'll see a lot of John Travolta references.
