The Vegas Round (or "Are we All-In or just
Bluffing?) - June 5/6|
They've broken through, now they'll conquer Vegas. The choreographers are taking
on an assault of routines thrown at our dancers in this week-long atlasphere and
by the end, the eliminator will choose 20 to go up the wall and reach the top
where a somewhat Powerball jackpot of $20,000 is at stake. Now let's go survive
the gauntlet and see who'll be cut tomorrow.
On to our first challenge which is hip-hop and Shane Sparks tells the troops
what to do. Everybody in group of ten is prepared. If there are 3 votes, he/she
is safe, but if there's 2, it's danger, and I don't mean Will Robinson either.
The teacher Katie Watts and the student Ashley Keegan are ready, but this time,
the student drops out....and so too is the teacher. Can somebody please tell
them where the principal's office is? Anyways, the judges trim down more dancers
like a lawnmower and Michael & Evita are the last ones to dance. The super silly
number made the judges laugh, and the laughed all the way to the bank as they
move to the next round. After 62 dancers got cut, Mary Murphy puts them to work
in the samba round. Pasha makes them look easy while his partner Janet makes
them...uh, look cool. But for Kaylin & Jay, they should've taken notes. or 2.
Jay says that he wanted to carry that group and did dragging across the floor.
But Kaylin thinks it may be a drag race, so she flunks out. Half are gone, and
1/2 are moving on.
One dancer lovesto be worked with Mia Michaels. Well, whoever said that was
right, because they get to do a routine. Michael & Evita were shocked by the
judges split, because Michael was cut and Evita stays put. So does Yessie
Gonzalez. Mia saw Ricky Palomino's performance and they put him through to the
next round. With a few staying alive, Twitch was one who did a solo performance
that wowed Mary Murphy and put him through. Then a man named Jamal got ready for
a tap dance. But he decided to tap....in his socks. That doesn't cut it and he
is gone. With 63 dancers left, they split into 15 groups and they'll have a CD
for a group routine.
It begins on a somber note. Hannah Lee, who is one in the group, sprained her
ankle, and with Olivia, Dallas, Kevin and Lauren, she stays put while all 4 go
through. With the ankle, she fought to survive with a solo routine, and it's
enough for Shane & Mia to go through, but Mary & Nigel give Hannah the old axe.
And that'll do it. Tomorrow, 20 contenders will be made, and pretty soon, only 1
will become the gladiator. It's a deciding joust you don't want to miss. Good
Making the top 20 (or "A knife in the Meat is
like....watching Arena Football....with Amy Lee")
Over 100 dancers survived the maze of routines, and many can't find the way out
of the gauntlet. Now it's time to hang tough. Only 20 will take the sky track to
LA, and the rest will give them the whiplash of their life.
Danny Treadwell is the first up. He has a big ego problem, but his ego is turned
off as he goes through. Next up, Ashlee. After a little downer comment from Mia,
Ashlee's confidence went way up as she goes through. Dominic Sandoval is next.
Shane Sparks likes him, but will like him more as he goes through to the top 20.
Cedric Garder is the next victim. Since he couldn't pick any partner styles to
deal with according to Nigel, he'll try and do that as he goes through. With
more people going through, Anya & Pascha are up. Anya knows that he has the
facility for the job by Shane as he goes through. So did Pascha. Mia says he's
only 1-dimensional, but he'll be in 3-D as he goes through. Faina is up. She
took a big collapse, but tumbles ahead to stay alive in the race. They were many
people that think they won't get cut, but can Lauren Gottlieb be one? No. She
goes on. B-Girl Sara is up and Mary knows she's just outstanding....and she will
be as she goes on. And she does a victory dance. More people made the cut, but
Heather....she got cut out. Despite her group night efforts, it fell just a wee
bit short. Jessie's up next, and Shane was shocked by her, but she'll give more
shock treatment as she goes on. People sent home like the end of work, and
Catlian didn't give way as she was out. And then there were 4. The guys go
first. Hok or Twitch will be decided. Despite a bad performance in group
routines, they choose....Hok. And Twitch is gone in a flash. The Girls are next.
It's down to either Lacey or Kristen, and it was tough as they choose....Lacey.
Kristin is out of here. So now, you have your top 20.
Top 10 Guys
Top 10 Girls
So with that, we put this puppy on ice and zap out. Next week, everything's
going nitro as the storm of the top 20 go all turbo and cut laser-perfect
routines. And soon, after 19 go down in a blaze of glory, only 1 will take the
gold. Hope to see you soon, Bye!
Fox is staging the ultimate dance battle with $100,000 on the
line. Who'll get served, and who'll be the last dancer standing?
