Mandy says things about sparkling eyes. Mary lists all the great dances he's done (apparently, he's krumped like no other they've ever had!). Nigel confesses to being happy when Twitch was in the bottom three, because it meant he got to watch a Twitch solo. Amen. He talks about Twitch's humor, and calls him a great entertainer, which is bigger than being a great dancer.
Joshua and Twitch are paired up, and Cat says this will settle a feud that's been brewing since they arrived in Hollywood. And we watch a cute montage of the men mockingly calling each other out.
And what better way to settle things than with a Russian trepak, choreographed by Youri Nelzine? Twitch says the dance is very testosterone driven, what with the kicking and the spinning, and the brightly colored baggy pants and sashes!
The dance itself doesn't do much for me. The guys don't seem to be skilled enough to give the dancing the energy it deserves, and they just take turns trying to top each other. Physically speaking, it's ridiculous; the high leaps that the guys do, especially Joshua, are amazing. Elevation! But watching them stamp around and pretend to yawn at each other's moves like a Russian dance version of 8 Mile wasn't that interesting.
It earns a standing ovation from the judges, though, and Mandy's all, "Sorry, ladies, but guys rule." Mary screeches about how awesome it is that they have two hip-hop dancers in the finale for the first time. Well, good job sticking them with a tough Russian dance, then. She yells and yells and screams. Nigel says he expected them to be good at it, since it's Russian street dancing. He says the routine will be something that will be spoken about for years to come.
It's Katee's turn to come under the tough grilling of Cat Deeley. We go back to Vegas and reminisce about Katee almost throwing away her shot by shitting on Nigel's suggestion that she come back next year if she doesn't make it this year, which is great, if you haven't heard Nigel bring it up constantly all season. She reminisces about her first partner dance with Joshua, and we watch a Katee-so-crazy-backstage montage.
