Round of 18 (or "How
the Hollywood Squares Broke the Bank")
Last week, Paris & Tony got an all-expenses paid
trip...to their own hometown. Loserville was in the
cards for these 2. This week, the top 18 will get some
more routines. a one-way ticket back home will spell
danger is they don't act right. So let's start the show,
Up first, Randi & Evan doing a jive to "Shake Your
Tailfeather" by Ray Charles. It was faster with great
spins & lifts.
What Mary said: It fell a little short for me.
What I said: I think they overused it a bit.
Before we get to our next couple, Lil' C joins the
motley crew known as Nigel & Mary. Now, Melissa & Ade
doing a Sonya Tayeh jazz routine to "24 Hours" by Terry
Poison. They took flight with aggression and authority.
What Nigel said: They are fabulous.
What I said: They went the non-conservative route and it
Next up, Caitlyn & Jason doing a Shane Sparks hip-hop
routine to "Missin' You" by Trey Songz. They had fun
with it and made the dance so lovely.
What Lil' C said: It left the routine perplexed.
What I said: It seems some mistakes were made here.
Going up next, Janette & Brandon going back in time to
do a disco number to “Loving Is Really My Game” by
Brainstorm. It had some lifts & splts than a normal
What NIgel said: It was the best routine ever.
What I said: Boy, did they kill it!
And it'll be Asuka & Vittolo's turn to take the 1-2-3 in
the waltz as they dance to "Dreams Are More Precious" by
Enya. They had raw emotion all throughout the routine.
What Mary said: I loved the honest performance.
What I said: It was so inspirational.
Next up, Kayla & Max jazz it up to "Hot Like Wow" by
Nadia Oh. The concept was to see who would be
controlling the throne. Play nice, people! In the end,
Max would take it despite having to dance together.
What Nigel said: I'm so happy Brian's back with the
What I said: What turned out was a welcome back party
from a long absence, thanks to Brian Friedman.
Here's a contemporary routine done by Karla & Johnathan.
The choreographer is Stacey Tookie from the Canadian
version of the show. The song is "Falling Slowly" by the
Frames, and the piece involves a couple going through
the trials in life as you see here.
What Nigel said: There were no false moves.
What I said: This was a story brought to life.
Now up, Jeanine & Phillip doing a tango done by Tony
Meredith. The song is "Violeno!" and it was not violent
trying to keep up the holds.
What Mary said: I give them an A-plus for attitude, but
a C minus for the technique.
What I said: I give a B for their efforts.
And finally, Ashley & Kupono doing hip-hop to "Imma Be"
by the Black Eyed Peas. (that rhymes, huh?) It even had
a shadow as a 3rd person. What is going on here?
What Lil' C said: Kupono struggled.
What I said: Maybe the shadow didn't do them justice.
Well, that's about it. Hip-hop wasn't a good night for 2
couples, and it could obviously mean the bottom 4 and
more importantly, elimination tomorrow night. Will that
happen? Find out together. Good night.
