Courtney's actually holding an hourglass on stage, and the title misspells Alicia Keys' name, which is awfully nice. I guess it was too much for me to hope to enjoy two Taboleon routines in one evening. Slow down the hip-hop, and what we really have here is more like a contemporary piece, with an hourglass prop and a mini photo album.
I wake up in time to hear Nigel start out by saying that Taboleon have done some amazing pieces for them this year, and I honestly thought he was going to say that he didn't like this one. Of course, that doesn't happen. He says this is the first scene he's been affected emotionally by hip-hop, almost like contemporary. Well, pardon ME, but we already have contemporary routines to get all weepy about. I'd really prefer that hip-hop made me feel like getting my ass out of my chair and moving.
As for Mary, she starts babbling about how she has certain expectations of dancers. "You didn't meet my expectations. [Pause while she puts on her stern face and we all pretend to think Mary actually hated it and just wait for her screamy compliment.] YOU BLEW MY EXPECTATIONS OUT OF THE WATER!" She says. Toni talks about "street" again. Toni is older than my parents.
Chelsie says she started dancing as a social thing, because she was a shy kid. Danity Kane sings "Damaged" while Chelsie shimmies and shakes on stage. Nothing memorable about it. How about we skip everyone else's solo routines and give the time to Will so he can finish his James Brown thing? It's her birthday today, so don't vote against her, America!
Katee and Twitch are now dancing a Tyce Diorio Broadway routine set to "Sweet Georgia Brown." Katee will be playing the part of Georgia Brown, and Twitch will be the man-meat she's after.
Katee's holding up a sign that says "Lookin' for Mr. Right." (Which would be Twitch.) It's a cast recording of the song. I've never heard it in any other form than the one used by the Harlem Globetrotters. It's Broadway, so there are big hammy movements, leg kicks and arm-waving. Twitch picks her up and struts around with her. I'm sure this is what the judges like to say is "fun."
