Debbie continues to think everyone is wonderful and wants to take Jess and Clarice home with her, along with Wadi from earlier. She says she needs more children, which, if I were Carrie Fisher, I would take as an insult. Then I would write a scathingly funny memoir about it. Nigel says he enjoyed parts of it. He tells us that Cat will be hosting an evening for Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Name-dropper! Nigel felt that the dancing was better when they were farther apart; they didn't look right when they were promenading. Mary liked Jess's control and calls Clarice "Miss Legs."
Tadd says that Jordan's dumb. Dang. This is based on the phony "SYTYCD Airlines" tickets to Vegas. She says that he's OCD on the grounds that he sorts his clothes by color and uses Ziploc baggies to pack them. That's just good planning, lady. Using the baggie lets you pull out the air and pack it much tighter. They've got a Viennese Waltz by Jean-Marc Generaux. This will require both grace and rhythm. And the ability to count to three. In Viennese, apparently. Tadd complains that Jordan keeps touching him when there's supposed to be space. Then they say "space" a lot. Space.
David Cook's "Fade into Me." A park bench. Spots of light on the backdrop. Fancy clothing. Spangles. As always, I don't have the ability to identify the Viennese part. It seems fine.
Nigel loves it, particularly Jordan's arabesque and Tadd's presentation. Yet again, it's the best he's ever seen a B-Boy do a Viennese Waltz. Every season, everyone's the best ever at everything. Mary says Tadd's the biggest surprise of the season. She then has some cool technical terms like "fencing lines." Debbie asks if they've ever heard of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, and Cyd Charisse. They have. "Well, you were just as wonderful as them," says Debbie, who is, frankly, out of her damn mind.
Marko tells us that Melanie really hates when people touch her ears. So he touches them a lot. Melanie says that Marko reads romance novels. At least he's reading. This is a Mandy Moore dance, which Melanie says involves them being "cool kids." I guess Melanie thinks cool kids do a lot of moves with bowler hats. This is what happens when you grow up in performing arts schools. There are a lot of lifts, but Marko is bigger than Melanie, so he doesn't drop her.
I don't know what DKS is or what "Sing with a Swing (Raf Marchesini Radio Edit)" means. It's basically a cover of "Sing Sing Sing" but done terribly. It samples the Andrews Sisters and then has a bunch of techno nonsense. People, just go with the Benny Goodman version. It'll never let you down. Oh, and the dance is okay, I guess. There are fewer dance moves than the rehearsal footage led me to expect. In fact, the dancers spend more time trying to keep their hats on their heads than they spend justifying the hats' presence.
