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.
It's time for Boris' Dragon House roommates' auditions. First up is Andre Rucker, whose style is insane. He can do movements I've never seen -- his popping is on another level and his routine is a fully choreographed, integrated, spectacular piece. Debbie calls his performance mystical. Nigel wants to know what his partner skills are like but he won't find it out until Vegas since Andre is right through.
Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer is the third Dragon House roommate and describes his style as "robot animated popper." It's actually quite a good description for the style all three of them have danced but each has his own spin on it and his is definitely more lighthearted while still being technically awesome. Naturally, he is also straight through to Vegas.
At the end of the day after the choreography round, both Janelle and Jackson are going to Vegas along with 13 others. Cue much screaming, jumping and crying.
First up on day 2 is Courtney Kirby, who is there with her grandma who used to be a dancer and is the cutest thing ever. Nigel invites her up to sit in his seat and watch; he keeps his lecherous reputation intact by pretending to put one leg around her when she hugs him but she in turn thanks him for letting him up there by pulling his face down into her chest. These two are a buddy comedy waiting to happen. She is so sweet, crying and holding Mary's hand while she watches the dance. Courtney is a beautiful contemporary dancer who does a routine to some grand piece of what sounds like dramatic movie score which would overwhelm a lot of dancers but she keeps up with it. Debbie wants her to go to Vegas, Nigel wants choreography, and Mary is swayed by Grandma's hand in hers and wants her to go to Vegas. Grandma asks Nigel if he wants to change his mind, and he hands her a ticket to give to Courtney.
