It's time for Round 2! Ellenore and Ryan have what Spencer Liff calls "a darker Broadway routine". Ryan is "power" and Ellenore is "innocence". That all sounds great, but they're dancing to "Razzle Dazzle" from the original Broadway cast of Chicago. Man, I hate that show. And I've seen it often enough that it's hard to ignore the original context, which has nothing to do with this dance. The dance seems fine. It gets the idea across and has some nice moves in it. I continue to be of the opinion that Ellenore is awesome. Adam praises the dance's "true traditional Broadway vocabulary", which means that they weren't just running back and forth wearing suspenders the way some Broadway routines on this show go. It looked like a dance you'd see in an actual show. Adam is giddy over how flexible and precise Ellenore was. Mary starts loud and works up to "WHOOOO!" She also reminds us that Ryan has a hurt back, so doing all these lifts couldn't have been easy. Then she calls Ellenore "The It Girl", which will come as a surprise to Myrna Loy. Wait, no. It was Clara Bow, wasn't it. Damn. I feel like I've just squandered all the credibility I got from that Hellzapoppin' link. Nigel is quite pleased about how well they put character on the dance.
Kathryn and Legacy will be doing a Viennese Waltz choreographed by Jean-Marc and France Généreux. Here's how you know Vienna is classy: it has a whole waltz named after it. You don't see people talking about "The Seattle Waltz". And if they did, they'd probably be talking about heroin. At any rate, the dance is to "Your Guardian Angel" by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and it looks fancy. I'm starting to think that Legacy is really, really good. Adam catches Legacy crying, and he explains that the portrayal of Hope is his main purpose for being on the show. And Nigel correctly points out that he can't possibly be mean to Legacy at this point. Adam has some mild complaints about Legacy's shoulders and feet, and also throws a few compliments to Kathryn. Mary knows perfectly well that this pairing will be fine this week, but she has a lot of footwork and knee-related criticisms. But they're actual criticisms, where she gives specific things to work on. Nigel feels that Legacy had some technical faults that no one will care about. And he thinks Kathryn was beautiful.
