Nigel says he thought they danced it very well, but there were two or three problems. He mentions the death fall and the finish, but says they carried it off. Mary says there were many great things about this number, adding Will did a great job getting into the character and owning it, calling it a turning point for him. She says Jessica stepped up to the plate. Then she screams that they are LEAN MEAN DISCO MACHINES. Adam thought the routine was very fantastic, with some challenging material from Doriana. He calls Jessica "so beautiful it's scary." He has a hunch that she's her own worst enemy as far as confidence goes. "Don't get in your way," he advises her, and says Will is fantastic too.
Matt says Kourtni has a tattoo on the back of her neck that says "...and so she would dance." And Matt has a "ninja mask" that he likes to put on. He says it's just an accessory. I wonder about ninjas who opt for purple and white stripes, myself.
This week they're doing contemporary by first time choreographer Sonja, who has a huge Mohawk. Nice of her to come all the way from Thunderdome. It's a comic book fight/flirt routine with a lot of poses and holds simulating comic book panels.
They dance to a "Wrestlers" remix by Hot Chip. And... yeah, it's a mock fight, with a lot of locked elbows and legs and lifts, and it wears out its welcome for me very quickly, getting very repetitious. Oh, she's grabbing his tie and pulling him. AGAIN.
Nigel says it's the first of them find a style that both of them can work in. He says it's quirky, a different flavor of contemporary. Does he think the public will love it as much as a Mia Michaels romantic routine? No, he says. Well, I liked it at LEAST as much as that, but that's not saying much. Mary says that there's something weird going on in Sonya's head, but she dug it. You know, it wasn't that weird at all. I think Mary looks at Sonya's Mohawk and alarm bells go off. Adam disses Matt's ninja mask, and praises their extraordinary bodies (while criticizing Kournti's "clown shopping bag" outfit). He says Matt needs to get down to the floor a little more, but overall it was fantastic.
