Oh, a Latin dancer! Kristen Dobson seems good, but I'm mostly excited because we might get to see Mary Murphy provide solid commentary. There's one spot where Kristen just stops in the middle of the dance and pulls her leg over her head, and it's really out of place. Nigel has Jason lead the commentary, and he liked her personality but not her partnering. Mary thinks she's doing remarkable for someone who's only been doing it for three years. And she gets super-technical right away, going into the details of the way Kristen puts her weight on her ankles. See, I love when she gets specific like that. If there were more of that and less shrieking, she'd be awesome.
Some ballroom dancers go to Vegas.
Parade of dancers. There's another Locker in there, in the traditional ridiculous bright colors.
Robert Taylor, Jr. is primarily characterized by insisting on going "Whoooooooo" a lot. He does the robot with a lot of amusing facial expressions, then busts into a high-energy popping style. I like the part where he walks on his toes. He's also very into waving at the audience, which is always fun. Nigel is delighted to see all the personality. Mary thinks it was both fun and entertaining. Jason appreciates all the entertainment, which "never got boring once." Not even once? Well, then. Robert is through to Vegas!
Final choreo. Jess has more facial expressions this time. Nigel sends him to Vegas on the assumption that he'll do more work before she gets there. Kristen also gets sent through. And so are some other people.
Tomorrow, Joe R. goes to Los Angeles and has to put up with a Nigel-Mary-Tyce judging table. Good luck, Joe!
