I just thought of something. Shouldn't the loser of the homework get the one-on-one time? I mean, they need it the most. I get that it's a prize, but this show is all about underdogs, right? Shouldn't the person who was the worst at creating romantic chemistry get a one-on-one tutoring session on it, rather than the person who already knows what they're doing? This is a crazy, backwards world.
For "choreography," the other choreographer Brooke teaches the kids how to move around and still be close to one another. It's not really choreography, is it? It's just sort of like, "now look at each other, now get on the floor for a brief dry hump."
In the vocal studio, Nikki is going to try the contestants at harmony. Aylin does well with the harmony, but Shanna has trouble finding balance. Nikki is shocked. It continues to be backwards day as Michael finds the harmony, and Blake is comically terrible. I can't even tell you how much I enjoyed it. It tickled me so much to hear Blake go "hoooopeless plaaaace" all out of key over and over again. I want to watch it a million times.
Have Blake and Shanna fallen from glory? They think they may have.
For the video shoot, Erik asks the contenders for "those little moments," as they sneak away from detention on a Saturday. Because that's a thing that happens in school ever. Lily is actually doing a good job working off of the wooden block that is Michael. She might not be able to keep him out of the bottom three, but who can at this point?
Douche moment with Darren Criss: in the least helpful feedback a mentor has ever given a contestant so far this season, Darren Criss tells Blake that "it's an amazing feeling" to be in love with somebody. Blake confesses that he has a girlfriend, and America heaved a heavy sigh. To lose Blake and Michael in the same week is a load to difficult to bear.
Blake and Ali are being "playful, fun, and creative," and Robert loved when Blake carried Ali out of her chair. God, we love a wheelchair moment on this show, don't we? It felt so real, like she really couldn't use her legs. They also love Ali's goal for this week, which is to make teens with disabilities feel like they can be sexy. She is all kinds of winning this week, in this world, but still too act-y for me.
Aylin and Shanna are super act-y, and are chastised for taking the choreography "too literally." Nikki notes that it doesn't feel natural at all, because according to One Million Moms, it's not. They agree that everyone left is incredible, and because of that, maybe they should toy with their fragile hearts and put them all in the bottom. Maybe let the boys fight it out in some kind of homoerotic fantasy?
