Caitlynn and Marko close things out, which I bet you didn't see coming. They have Sonya Tayeh, which I like the idea of. They're supposed to be mean and rough, which is a tough sell for both of them. Early on, there's a great spot where Tadd seems to clothesline Caitlynn across the stage. I bet you though I was done with the wrestling references! This whole dance looks really cool, actually.
They get a standing ovation from the judges. C says that when he tweets, he likes to use a hashtag for emphasis. So this routine was "double hashtag bucc." Also, he gets in a plug for his Twitter handle, which is pretty slick. Christina calls Marko a beast, which is a nice move. And she tells Caitlynn that this dance was her moment. Mary throws a halfhearted fake toward the idea of not liking it, but then she gets serious and tells Caitlynn how great she was. Oh, and Marko has always been Mary's favorite. Nigel loves Sonya, as well he should. He tells Caitlynn that she came of age tonight. That's all well and good, but isn't it just going to make it all the more heartbreaking when they send her home tomorrow for not being Melanie or Sasha?
Here's my rundown:
Sasha/Kent: The Wall
Caitlynn/Marko: That Dance By Sonya
Melanie/Tadd: The Mirror
Tadd/Ellenore: Dance of the Whores
Melanie/Twitch: Red Riding Hood
Marko/Janette: Paso Doble
That ranges from "Absolutely loved it" on the top end down to "That was fun to watch but didn't really engage me" at the bottom. I didn't outright dislike anything tonight! I think Ricky and Caitlynn will probably go home tomorrow, and everyone will feel sad to watch them go.
Tomorrow: Lauren and Kent! Pia Toscano! The Bad Boys of Dance! And we cut to the top four!
