Randi and Evan are up next. She thinks it's been a rollercoaster, and Evan's favorite part of the show is working with the choreographers. This has probably been also because they've done super well each week and everyone loves them -- it's just a guess. They did jazz, jive, and then contemporary with Mia. Basically, the two of them are pocket-sized and awesome. This week they're doing Broadway with a new choreographer, Joey Dowling. Joey tells us it's not traditional, but it's got power, and that they are going to be fighting through a toxic relationship. She looks like she's seven feet tall next to these two, which I think is a combo of them being miniature people and her height being made up 90% by her legs. They seem freaked out by the routine, but Joey thinks she was easy on them -- she seems like a tough customer.
They're dancing to "Rich Man's Frug" from Sweet Charity. He starts out at a table and chairs when she walks down the stairs in a little showgirl costume and seems totally uninterested. But yet maybe interested -- let's dance and have him chase her! She punches him! But she loves him! But she arm-wrestles him! It's actually not as fast as I'd thought from rehearsals, and while they dance it really well I can't help but wish I was seeing them in a different number. This one is leaving me cold. I don't think Joey did nearly as much as she could given the dancers she had to work with, especially Evan. But as the judges can't really insult the choreographers, I'm sure they won't. Nigel calls it a great homage to Bob Fosse, but I feel like I was missing something there. Dang, I wish I had a better dance vocabulary for figuring out what I didn't like. Totally opposite of what I feel, he thanks Joey for a fun routine. He thinks Randi did great but Evan was disappointing given how simplistic yet stylized the choreography was. I don't think that's quite fair -- I think Evan did what he could and could have done way better with different moves, but I don't think Nigel is really allowed to say that. Despite the criticism, they are still some of his favorite dancers. Mary says it's easy for the judges to go crazy when they see dancing this great. (I think Mary needs much less than that to go crazy.) But she's in a normal voice which gives away that she thinks it was done well but not great. She thinks it was entertaining, but it sounds kind of like an insult since she can't give a compliment without screeching. Mia then compliments Joey's six-foot tall frame and her pink cheeks and giggles give away her total crush. Mia says that these two should have taken it to the next level because of their (lack of) height, and they were given great choreography, but they didn't take it to the level Joey wanted. She actually then says "bravo to the choreographer" but just "good job" to them -- and I know I'm just the girl in pajamas watching the show but in my humble opinion, I disagree.
