Choreography! Adam tells Kent he has a lot to learn ... in Vegas. That one actually worked. Andrew is going through even though they weren't sure he was good enough. "And three more happy dancers will be joining him" says Cat.
Okay, we're down to day two of Chicago. Line, flips, Cat, you know the deal.
We kick things off with Kellen Borchers, who combs his hair straight down his forehead. It's a little Dwight Schrute-y if you ask me. And I like Dwight, but I don't think he can dance. Kellen has no real idea what he's doing out there. He doesn't have a wacky gimmick; he's just kind of flailing around. The judges are laughing delightedly and applauding and I have no idea why. Nigel asks who he thinks he dances like. He goes with "a Brian or something." Nigel and Stacey try to let him down gently and he eventually goes away. That was a productive use of airtime.
Oh, wait. He gets a "dancing down the street" scene. Okay, now he's done.
Christopher Gilbert comes out on stage with a cane and does a popping thing I enjoy a lot. I'm not sure about his garish sweater, but he's pretty awesome. Adam loved it and praises the way he physicalized the music. Stacey calls him "thoroughly entertaining". Nigel tries to find out if the glasses are legitimate or an affectation (he doesn't want a clone of Twitch, I think) and sends him to choreography.
A number of dancers are good enough for choreography, but not Las Vegas. I love this one guy who's standing on his head without using his hands and falls over on his side. It's on purpose and it looks neat. I'm not sure it's dancing, though.
Jarrod Mayo brought his mother. That's it? No dog with cancer or anything? He has a style that involves a lot of sudden kicks behind him. I'm not in love with the dance he's doing, but he's clearly got a lot of technique and knows what he's doing. His facial expressions are terrific. Okay, I think I'm being won over as the dance goes on. Yeah, I'm on Jarrod's side now. Nigel mildly objects to Jarrod's shoulders but calls him amazing anyway. Jarrod's mother gets dragged out on stage for some reason. Eventually, Jarrod gets sent to Vegas. Hooray!
