Amanda Vivoma, 18, from Pomona, CA, plans to do hip-hop with a little bit of ballet and R&B. She shimmies around to "Pon the Replay." She has zero rhythm, and needs a couple of tries to do her somersault or cartwheel or whatever. At one point, she sits down and perform what I like to think is called The Bumpy Toboggan Ride. Nigel tells her to find something "really useful" to do with her life, because it won't be in professional dancing, and if anyone knows anything about being "really useful," it's Nigel Lythgoe.
Dia Beck, 28, from Pleasant Grove, UT, and Kurt Myers, 23, of Orem, UT, are ballroom dancers. Kurt has had the hiccups for the past SEVEN AND A HALF years, and has somehow managed not to kill himself. After their routine, which is pretty good, Nigel goes on and on about how Dia was winking throughout the routine, which she wasn't even aware of. Mary totally loses her shit over Kurt hiccupping, and laughs for about five years. Nigel compliments their performance. Mary points out that Dia has no balance, but has a laughing fit when Kurt conveniently hiccups again. I say we all chip in and hire Kurt to stand behind Mary and just hiccup whenever she starts prattling on about whatever.
