Chelsea says Thayne wants to be a fashion designer, since he's always making shirts and picking out things for her to wear. Thayne says Chelsea is "quite the little flower thief." She's always stealing place settings and garden blooms. Finally! An actual crime!
They're doing the quick step by Heather Smith, which is a new style for both of them, and Heather busts out a hula hoop to help them get used to the frame.
They dance to "You Can't Hurry Love," the Phil Collins version, for some goddamn reason. They flit about the stage. This is not a style that lends itself to big showy moves, I imagine. It's more on-base percentage than home runs, if you will. A couple of the kicks seemed off to me, but overall it seemed OK. There's some Charleston action thrown in.
Nigel says it was a little too bouncy for his taste, and that they didn't really show their personality. He says that it was a better attempt than he figured it was going to be (nice backhanded compliment), but he thinks they'd best start preparing to dance for their lives. Mary acknowledges more than Nigel the degree of difficulty involved in learning the quickstep so quickly, and praises the effort. She does say Chelsea let down her partner somewhat. Adam says they're both great dancers, but they didn't look comfortable. It's OK for them not to be comfortable, but not for that to be apparent to the audience.
Chelsie says Mark's pinkies are crooked: "He's weird." Mark says Chelsie is a tomboy when she's not on stage being sexy. Hang on while I get the toothpicks to keep my eyes open.
They're doing a hip-hop routine with Napolitha. "It's hip-hop with emotion," we're told, whatever that's supposed to mean. Mark is a workaholic who is leaving his girlfriend Chelsie. Or something. Napoleon shows Mark a move and then gay-panics about doing that with another guy.
"Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis. Oh, that's this song. I actually know this one. He's in a suit, she's in a French-maid-on-casual-Fridays outfit. If the bland non-hip-hop song didn't clue you in, "hip-hop with emotion" apparently means "boring hip-hop." They dance it well, though, with Chelsie in particular deep in character, and they do a couple of cool things with Mark moving her with his arms (without touching her).
Nigel says he's loving Tabitha and Napoleon, and is happy they've come over to the real number one dance show. Mary screams that she loved it, and says she believed the emotional struggle, since they lived it on stage. "I loved it, I loved the passion," she says. Adam stands up and starts yelling too, getting all red-faced, about how awesome it was. He says they nailed it, and hip-hop has become a really beautiful genre of its own. Yes, thanks to So You Think You Can Dance, hip-hop is finally a legitimate genre, now that its edges have been sanded off. He also calls them the couple to beat. They danced it well, even I can tell; I just didn't like it.
