Round of 7 Part 2: Disco Challenge
Last week, the crews got
a bye in the Lady Gaga Challenge, as due to a voting
snafu, the results were thrown out and no one was sent
home. HOWEVER, this means that as we throw it back to
the age of jive this week... TWO crews will watch
helplessly as their banners fall.
The three crews with the most votes will
be safe. The others will battle for two more spots.
Each crew has a master mix of a disco
hit, and will have to infuse their routine with disco moves to create an
unforgettable performance. As an added challenge, you must incorporate a
lift into your routines.
First up, BLUEPRINT CRU. As a reminder,
they won an immunity pass to the next round, so they have nothing to
worry about tonight, but they have to bring it hard for your votes if
they want to last another week. They'll lift out a funky guitar and a
helicopter lift to "Le Freak" by Chic.
What they say: Omarion thought it started
slow, but they ended up very creative. JC thought it was a little
different, but it looked interesting, and he liked the use of the table,
especially Enrique's backflip. Lil Mama thought the transitions were
smooth and on point.
What we say: They're known for telling a
story, and they do with their rich moves, but they're not all in time as
they should be.
Next up, four eggs. Who could they belong
to? We'll find out as the next group, BLUEPRINT CRU, take the stage with
"Bad Romance". They have to do something "out of the box". They're used
to doing something precise.
What they say: JC says they had a lot of
fun, worrying that it was going to be a little corny. They controlled
momentum. Omarion said they embraced the task. Mama liked the Soul Train
line, and it was all cool.
What we say: They weren't altogether to
start the piece, and some of the transitions were a little sloppy. But
it was a good start.
Now to reveal the first result. Who'll
stay alive, and who'll burn baby burn? The first crew safe... SALTARE!
Static Noyze will head into battle as the first crew in the bottom
three. Back to the Raleigh ropers. They want to incorporate the Hustle,
but can they pull it off with jump ropes? They'll dance to "Disco
Inferno" by the Trammps.
What they say: Mama says that they were
interesting, but it was only an eight-count of dance. JC said that the
first lift was clean. The second lift was a disaster. Omarion had a lot
of great moments. The timing is important, and they have to get back in
What we say: Saw a little tangle on the
jumping in the middle, but they got it back. The dancing was killer. I
liked the use of fire. It was a great performance some of it.
Next up, two more crews. The next crew to
move onto next week are... POREOTIX! Joining them... HYPE 5-0! That
means Jungle Boogie, Heavy Impact, and Static Noyze will battle tonight.
But first, Poreotix pick up Michael Jackson's dancing machine. But can
they break out a lift? They can't... but they turn it into a windmill.
They're going to pop it to "Dancin' Machine" by the J5.
What they say: Omarion thought it was an
interesting challenge, seeing them rise to the occasion and show off a
different side of them. Mama said that they stepped it up and were
versatile. JC was brought back. Things were predictable, but they
brought everything into the performance.
What we say: ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT.
Following them is Hype 5-0. The Honolulu
hip-hoppers will try and work an electric slide into their routine.
Casey says that the lift is scary, because the guys will hurl her on
their shoulders. Right now, their future is on their shoulders as they
rock it to "Shake Your Groove Thing" by Peaches & Herb.
What they say: JC loves the classic,
seeing that they had a little fun. But they were waiting to do
something. They have to be doing something all the time. Omarion cites
Mark's hand-hops. It was a lot of elements, and they were all good. Mama
said that they started to get a little funky once the sha-bam came down
What we say: Lots of moves. Lots of
choreo. Lots of lifting. It was all clean, all together. They're rising
to the top.
Now that we've had our safety dances,
let's go into...
DOUBLE SUDDEN DEATH
As a reminder, the bottom three are
Jungle Boogie, Heavy Impact, and Static Noyze. They will perform one
after another. The judges will pick one to move on. The other two... are
going to drop.
First up, Heavy Impact with the strut.
Can they even lift each other? We're going to find out with a master mix
of "You Should Be Dancing" by the Bee Gees.
Next up, it's Static Noyze going retro
with the Stayin' Alive arms. Can they make it avant-garde? Meanwhile,
three weeks ago, Enrique goes to a doctor about his back. Unfortunately,
that means that he's going to sit out this week. They have a man down,
but can they man up with "A Fifth of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy (yes,
"Family Guy's" music guy)?
Finally, it's all about Jungle Boogie.
They're hard-hitting and aggressive. Can they find a move that's worthy
of them? They go with... the bump. It is... not happening yet. Can they
make a lift happen? It... could be worse. They're going to dance to ...
what else, Kool & the Gang's "Jungle Boogie".
We've had the battle, but now it's time
for the moment of truth. Who's walking away a winner and who's walking
The only surviving crew of the bottom
Unfortunately Static Noyze and Heavy
Impact didn't bring the goods, and now... their banners must fall.
Next week, the crews take on an R&B
legend in the making with the Usher Challenge with the man himself in
presence. Who'll make us wanna cast a vote for them, and who'll let it
burn? One title... Now FIVE crews. The search for America's best dance
Now who's up for a Soul Train line?
