Nicole, with her hair let down (A TOTALLY DIFFERENT PERSON) grabs Serge Ornick to partner with her, which seems like, if not cheating, then at least stacking the deck. And she doesn't even do that well the second time. Her magical hair even gets whipped into poor Serge's face at the end. Now, I don't think she was good, but I fully support sending her on. She's a captivating performer, and more ballroom training can shore up these weaknesses. Lil' C votes no, but everyone else gives her very conditional yes votes. She needs to improve. And pull it together, if her crazy nerves here are any indication.
Finally, Adechicke dances for his life, and he's utterly gorgeous. He's smooth and stealthy, like he's a jewel thief or a spy. Nigel scolds him, as he is wont to do, for delivering that mockery of a tap performance. He calls him immature and stupid and then sends him through to the next round. So does everyone else.
Next up: Broadway! But that's for next week.
