Oh lord, they are dancing to the Pussycat Dolls. I may have a lot of their songs, but let the record show that I put all of them on my iTunes with a deep sense of shame. Janette is in a sparkly pink barely-there dress and they shimmy, shake and gyrate their way through a fast routine. Nigel tries to fake-out but he quickly calls it the best cha-cha he's ever seen on the show, and that it would fit on a world championship stage. The best thing is that when they show Jean-Marc nod in agreement, there's a random kid in the audience with a lip ring and a giant furry hat nodding sagely behind him. Nigel can't seem to describe how great it is other than repeating how the two of them can actually walk on water. Oh good grief, I'm going to have to mute Mary -- they're talking about a train coming. But Mary first talks in a normal voice to give actual feedback and to tell Janette that salsa, her style, is so different like this (okay, so I was totally wrong earlier) and that yet Janette could do a ton of technical things totally right. She gets shrieky as she tells Brandon how he's a dance God, and then stands up to scream that they are on the train. Nigel, Mia and Cat all plug their ears, and Mia looks like she's not entirely joking about it. Mia says she knows she probably scared the crap out of Brandon to dance in front of her, but she claims that the dancers she is toughest on are the ones in whom she's seen talent and totally tries to cover her ass that she was only a jerk because she thought he could really make it. I call bull -- she thought he was a jerk because he was cocky and overrated and she should now just eat a tiny bit of crow, but oh well. Brandon cries, Jean-Marc stands up and cheers, and Mia promises him hell in the future but tells him he's amazing. Oh, and so is Janette.
Kayla and Kupono are up next. First up was the crash test dummies for Kupono and then the samba for Kayla and her ticket on the hot tamale train. Man, you know what I was begging for? A replay of Mary screaming, because we don't see it enough. Next week was Kupono and Ashley's doomed hip-hop, and Kayla's neon chicken routine with Max. Both are sad that they lost their partners and they show the teary hugs. Then last week the new couple did a waltz that went well and Mary... screamed. This week, they've got Sonya for contemporary, and Kupono actually made a Sonya shirt in his excitement. Apparently this is a dark routine, "Vampire-esque." Well, that's an original idea in this day and age. But that said, I've so far loved Sonya's stuff, so I hope that holds.
