They are dressed, well, like Romeo and Juliet. It is really cool that she can dance en pointe for this -- I do love watching that. Her moves, also, are INSANE. She does this thing where he holds her up and she has one leg out and another moving like she is running. It looks crazy hard but spectacular. Ade is pulling off his few solo moves with aplomb, and he can lift her amazingly. She is obviously knocking this sout of the park. Cat tells that now tons of little girls are asking to take ballet classes, and I don't think she's wrong. Nigel is up first, and he congratulates himself for the show now introducing America to ballet. Nigel, I love your show to a level some might call "obsession" but... while it's awesome that we just got to see this routine, you are not the reason America just learned about ballet. Clearly, we all know about it because of Center Stage. He says that Melissa was amazing and that Ade could have had slightly better feet but he kept up with everything else. He then again congratulates the show for showing the range from an alien impregnating a dancer and to Romeo and Juliet. I never caught that impregnation, by the way, but I guess this is the kind of "banter" you get when there's 33 minutes left in the show and only one couple left to dance. Mary loved it, and she's using her quiet, shaky ballet voice to show she's serious -- she also says Melissa was incredible and Ade's strength was amazing. What, no ballet tamale train? Mia then gushes about classical ballet, and how it's the real core of dancing, and these two danced it amazingly. In a million different ways, she repeatedly calls them brilliant.
Before the final couple is introduced, Cat reminds us that a bunch of people couldn't make the show but inspired something special. There's a cool montage of a bunch of the choreographers working, and some great dancing from people who both did and didn't make the show. Nigel tells us about the Dizzy Feet Foundation, started by him, Adam Shankman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and ... Katie Holmes? Oh happy day, did I luck into the Katie Holmes episode?? Cat interviews Katie about why she's involved, and Katie thinks it's important for kids to experience dancing, singing, and to grow and have access to the best. Through a number of different interviews we learn that the foundation awards scholarships to underprivileged dancers, and that they will pick ten kids from six studios for scholarships. Mary adds something but oh my goodness, this interview was done pre-Botox and it's utterly distracting, how different she looks -- is Botox your only "secret," Mary? You can learn more about the foundation at Dizzyfeetfoundation.org. Nigel then admits that they've been trying to deny what's coming up but as we all knew from the glorious Internet, Katie Holmes will be appearing on the 100th episode on July 23rd doing a Tyce-choreographed tribute to Judy Garland. I am filled with glee and now crossing off my calendar for July 23! But also, I kid because I love -- Katie will donate her performance fee to the foundation and it seems like a really great cause. I've become a complete and utter softie!
