Lil' C says, "That was buck," and Cat, Melissa and Ade do a celebratory chest bump. Lil' C reminds Ade that he was surprised to get picked for the top 20, since Ade thought his main competition had already made it onto the list. Lil' C says he thinks Ade might be the competition for everyone else, and likes that he's "modifying (his) manipulation of movement" which I think is an annoying way of saying Ade's getting better. As for Melissa, he talks about the way Sonya makes you search for "that hidden person on the inside," and praises Melissa for submerging herself in it.
Mary: "It's time to give you guys some tough love." Everyone groans. "Because it was REALLY TOUGH TO FIND SOMETHING NOT TO LOVE," she screams. Melissa is quirky and phenomenal, and Ade's technique and movement was soaring across the stage. "The gentle giant is still out there, just WOO!" she yells. Fortunately, she's done.
Nigel says he likes the way Sonya's routines allow the dancers to show off technique, and talks about Ade's jumps in the hurdle position, and he says if he didn't know Melissa was a ballerina, he never would have guessed it. "That was a great routine from Sonya, I thought you danced it brilliantly. Well done," he says. To be fair, Melissa cut her teeth dancing the Charleston in the '20s, so she should be good.
What secrets do Caitlin and Jason have? Caitlin says Jason had a serious obsession with Michael Jackson. Which isn't surprising for a dancer. What makes it awesome is the home video of a Michael Jacksonfied Jason practicing his Gloved One dance moves, including the fantastic "wearing an open white shirt while standing in front of a fan" move. Sweet. Jason tells us Caitlin talks in baby voices all the time (which didn't surprise me) and also that she likes to act like a velociraptor (which did). Amusing footage follows.
Yay! Shane Sparks hip-hop routine! Caitlin explains that it's about a couple who meet in a bar and have an intense relationship for a week and then she leaves and then he sees her again and wants her back. Shane Sparks' face on television earns a little cheer from the audience. "Chemistry is the story. That's everything," he says. Then we get to enjoy one of those annoying bits in which we're reminding that all dance couples are just inches away from having sex with each other, in this case, because Jason's pants kept slipping down.
