Kimmel. The gist this week is that all of the Kimmel show's employees have gotten into the swing of things and are now dancing around at work. It's cute. At least there are no gay panic jokes. I applaud that.
God, this show should be thirty minutes, but I guess it's a bit late for that. Enrique Iglesias is back to sing a more uptempo number. I am a hundred years old. I just said, "uptempo number." The only interesting thing that happens in this segment is that, at one point when I was fast forwarding through it, I thought Enrique tried to moonwalk. I was wrong, but at least that would explain the sneakers.
Len explains that we have two athletes (Laila and Apolo) and two entertainers (Ian and Joey) left. Len decides that the athletes have a physical advantage. The other judges chime in that the athletes are used to training and have stamina. Len thinks they also have better coordination. But the entertainers are better at giving a show and engaging the audience. The athletes don't let negative thoughts into their heads, and are able to take criticism because they're used to being coached. The entertainers have more confidence because they're used to being in makeup, in front of bright lights, and on a set. Len thinks that the entertainers want to be liked, but the athletes just want to win. Carrie Ann points out that entertainers have to compete all of the time for roles and attention. Len ultimately decides that the champion will be the person who can fuse the best qualities of athlete and entertainer. That was actually a pretty interesting analysis, even if athlete vs. entertainer is kind of a false dichotomy. I mean, I've seen Steve Sanders play beach volleyball. While wearing high-tops. I think he's both athlete and entertainer.
Because they have more time to kill, now we have to watch a clip package about what the remaining contestants think of their competition. Let's talk about Ian! Apolo thinks that Ian has worked hard. Joey thinks Ian's very committed. Laila thinks Ian's best is yet to come. Next up is Joey. Laila thinks you can't count him out. Ian admires Joey's showmanship. Apolo thinks Joey's experience helps him. How about Laila? Apolo thinks she works the dance floor. Joey thinks she's really come out of her shell. Ian thinks she's elegant, plus she's the only woman left, which might give her an advantage. And finally, what about Apolo? Ian thinks his athleticism is great. Joey points out that his frame is dead on. Laila thinks Apolo is her biggest threat. And guess what? They all want to win!
