Russell and Mollee are dancing a jive, choreographed by Anya and Pasha NOT THAT WE GET TO SEE THEM. Grr. They're dancing to "Land of 1000 Dances," which already puts me in a good mood. Because it's the jive, I'm paying severe attention to their legs, and there doesn't seem to be anywhere near the bounciness a jive should have. As a result, it's fairly low energy. They throw in a couple flips -- as well as yet another linked-arms over-the-back maneuver, which I guess is their calling card now -- but it's window dressing.
Nigel liked it. He thinks they survived having to follow Jakob and Ellenore. He also tells Mollee she's maturing AGAIN. So now it's just from routine to routine? Is she eligible for Social Security yet? Mary doesn't criticize the footwork, so maybe I'm off the mark. But this has been a very screamy night for Mary overall, so perhaps we shouldn't go by her. Adam thinks they had great chemistry, again.
One last bio video, from Jakob. We get the always wonderful "he wasn't too interested in sports" Dad interview, and then his mom cries over how hard he's worked to get here. And then Jakob lays down a solo where most laws of physics are denied and even jokers like Pat Monahan are put in service to something beautiful. I love this kid something severe.
Rundown! Again, in order of most amazing: 1) Jakob and Ellenore's contemporary; 2) Mollee and Russell's lyrical jazz; 3) Jakob and Ellenore's quickstep; 4) Kathryn and Nathan's Broadway; 5) Legacy and Ashleigh's contemporary; 6) Legacy and Ashleigh's hip-hop; 7) Mollee and Russell's jive; 8) Noelle and Ryan's waltz; 9) Kathryn and Nathan's rumba; 10) Noelle and Ryan's hip-hop.
If I had to guess, I'd say Noelle and Nathan are in the most trouble (or maybe that's just who I think should go), though I'll be curious to see what the negative reviews do to Legacy. Check back in tomorrow for Monty and your results!
Joe R got what he asked for last week. Let's see if he can do it again: gimmie a Kathryn and Russell pairing and let them do hip-hop! Questions, comments, and unadulterated love can be sent to him at email@example.com.
