Jackson Alvarez is another hip hop dancer with a ton of amazing power moves, as Cat tells us, and he appears to be quadruple jointed or something. When the judges talk to him after he has performed, he says that in his club they do a lot of line dances including one called the "Wobble." It turns out to be a dance to the song of the same name by V.I.C. and Nigel invites the whole audience up on stage to do it; I'm a sucker for this song and I'm even more of a sucker for Debbie Allen when she jumps up and dances, including some wobbling of her hips in Nigel's face. For that, Jackson gets a pass to the choreography round.
Janelle Issis, a Palestinian belly dancer from Birmingham, Alabama, is up next. Dude, I tried just a belly dancing workout video once and I have no idea how to move my body like that at all so I'm already impressed. Nigel tells her that her eyes sparkle but as she's wearing a sparkly bra, I think his own eyes might actually be elsewhere. She's trained in a lot of other styles but belly dancing is her passion so that is what she's doing today. Nigel leers at her and is generally gross, and of course he adores her dance. I love it too, but in a different, less creepy way from Nigel. The judges all find her to be an all-out performer and star, but hedge their bets and send her to choreography.
Contemporary dancer Danielle Dominguez is up next and her interesting factoid is that she loves bacon -- we get a whole segment set in her house to a song entirely about the wonders of bacon. It's made as if it is a dream sequence of Nigel's but really, it could be a dream sequence of my own since I firmly believe everything is better with bacon. He tells her how great she looks on the bacon diet and then turns to his co-judges and says maybe they would like to try it themselves; I do think he walked right into that not realizing what he was saying and everything he says after to try and make up for it only digs him deeper into his bacon-lined grave. So, back to Danielle. Her style is very much in the Sonya Tayeh "weird" camp and it's unsurprising that she'd die to work with her. Nigel also likens her to Mark Kanemura which is an awfully bold statement in my mind as he's one of my favorite dancers from the entire series and she has a little ways to go to get to his level. But they find her good enough to send straight to Vegas.
