of 12 (or "Thanksgiving Mayhem")
It must be the week in which the turkey &
gravy must be passed around. But for 2, it'll be a long nap for them.
You'll see why who's the stuffing in that turkey as we begin dancing.
Up first, Ryan & Ellenore doing a lindy hop to "I've got to be a Rug
Cutter." First of all, why did they dance to an old record that came out
long before MP3s, cassette tapes and CDs became all the rage on this
What Nigel said: I Thought it was terrible.
What I said: I think the album done did it.
We got Legacy & Kathryn doing a jazz routine to "So Deep" by Hot Chip.
Kathryn took the floor with authority and commanded it.
What Adam said: They'll go all the way if they keep this up.
What I said: Kathryn was a diva with that routine.
Next up is Karen & Victor doing a tango. Done by Tony & Meredith, it was
hard to do it with a black backdrop, but it paid off.
What Mary said: Victor's lines was great.
What I said: The tango in a black backdrop wasn't that hard.
Next is Mollee & Nathan doing hip-hop to "Ring-A-Ling" by the Black Eyed
Peas. It went off to a good start, but it went downhill for the rest.
What Nigel said: I like to see them partnered with more matured dancers.
What I said: Don't worry about them. The last weeks will help.
We got Noelle & Russell doing a samba to "Hips Don't Lie" by Shakira.
Noelle was in front of the camera acting like she's at a sporting event.
What's wrong with that?
What Mary said: There wasn't enough bounce
What I said: Noelle needs to stop showing off and keep dancing.
To end this thing, Ashleigh & Jakob doing a Lyrical jazz to "TIme Flies"
by Lykke Li. Ashleigh tried to stuggle a bit, but she came through in
the distance for this routine.
What Adam said: It was so beautiful.
What I said: That was awesome!
Well, that's all the....wait a sec, we got another go-round. Let's
back from the top now, we begin with Ryan & Ellenore doing Broadway to "Razzlw
Dazzle" from "Chicago." They killed it in the long run.
What Adam said: It was true Broadway vocabulary.
What I said: I define perfection!
Next is Legacy & Kathryn doing a Viennese waltz to "Your Guardian Angel"
by the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. It was graceful to see what it was all
What Mary said: They'll both be okay.
What I said: Give them props. They're good dancers.
Next up, Karen & Victor doing hip-hop to "Moving Mountains" by Usher.
Apparently, it didn't go nowhere for the 2 since Viktor became a dummy
in the routine.
What Nigel said: It could have ended with the tango.
What I said: How did that happen one routine too late?
We got Mollee & Nathan doing a can-can. Yes, a can-can. As you watch
here, it reminds you of France.
What Nigel said: It had great energy.
What I said: It was dynamic to watch them in action.
BTW, the choreographer for that previous one is Tyce Diorio. On to our
next couple which is Noelle & Russell doing contemporary to "A Case Of
You" by Diana Krall. It brought a gorgeous dance into a great routine.
What Nigel said: They've done something memorable.
What I said: It was cool.
And to end it....and I mean it.....Ashleigh & Jakob doing a cha-cha to
"Cha-Cha Heels." Cute song, isn't it. Anyways, they put themselves on
cruise control and never looked back.
What Mary said: They blew it out the ballpark.
What I said: Homerun!
That'll do it. 2 routines for each couple in one night. You gotta love
hard work. Tomorrow, only 2 will get the pink slip. We'll see you
tomorrow for our results show.
