They're dancing to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Inner Life, and pull it off they do indeed. They're both in tight black clothes, Lacey's being spandex pants with ruffled bellbottoms and a top that consists of a diamond-shaped piece of fabric artfully placed on her torso, with sequins adorning it. They dance well together, hit all the steps, and she does some sort of crazy spin that I'm sure has a technical name but hell if I know it. They then dance next to each other and are perfectly in sync with every step. Even if I don't know much technically, I know that's hard to pull off. The jidges love them too. Adam loves their showmanship and compliments the spin I noticed, which was some sort of triple that is reportedly really hard. Mary loved them, of course, and thanks Maria for the first true hustle they've had on the show. I don't remember any fake hustles, but I'm not a jidge. Mary points out that Kameron looked uncomfortable a few times, but that he did a good job leading Lacey, who is dependable, strong, and grounded. Does that sound a bit like she's talking about livestock to anyone else? Nigel tells them they can't rely on partnerships because soon they're going to be split up, and for one second Lacey looks positively stricken. He tells Kameron to be careful since Lacey is outshining him -- duh, Nigel, she's wearing all the sequins reflecting on his face right now. But he's right, she steals the show, and then gets the ultimate compliment when he says she's even technically better than her brother. He's in the audience, and whoops for her when he hears this. Can I adopt the entire Schwimmer family?
Next up are Cedric and Shauna. She's been snowboarding since she was six, since her father owns a snowboard/skate shop. Cedric was his high school's mascot, Purgold. They made up the name because it was a giant purple and gold hat. I hope no one strained a muscle coming up with that one. They say that last week they were surprised to not be in the bottom three. As was everyone else, guys, as was everyone else. This week they're getting the mambo, choreographed by Alex DeSilva. He's got three assistants, and just as my friend and I wondered why there were so many there, he admits that he brought extra when he heard he had Cedric. Ouch! Alex looks exasperated as Cedric repeatedly nearly breaks Shauna's neck trying to do the moves. Cedric says that it's challenging, but seems upbeat as always. Shauna seems exhausted, but tries to convince us she believes they can pull this off.
