The judges were likewise unanimous on the men. Will steps forward so Nigel can say they were disappointed to see him in the bottom three, but happy to see him dance, because he's sensational. Nigel advises him to slow down a little bit and be more aware of his audience. ["They also gush about how he'll be in the final four, and the overpraising is pretty much dooming him to have to dance for his life each and every week until that point, but at least the judges will get to see him solo dance more. And isn't making Nigel happy what this show is all about?" -- Angel]
So it's Jamie and Matt, and Nigel praises Jamie's personality and Matt's technique, saying it'd be great if the two of them could be fused. As Nigel talks about how hard it will be for Matt to find a personality, it sounds like Jamie's staying. But Nigel says "tonight, and only tonight" they're going for technique over personality, and Jamie's going home. He fights back tears as he talks about how happy he is just to have been a part of the show this far. Poor kid. But at least he got pantsed on national television! They can never take that away from you, Matt.
