Sabra and Dominic were in the bottom three last week. This week, they did a contemporary routine to that beyond-annoying "I'll Stand By You" song by the Pretenders. They danced really well to it, with special praise earned by b-boy Dominic. They're safe, prompting Dominic to fall on the floor and Sabra to jump on him. Then she hugs Cat and almost gets swallowed up.
The last three couples are onstage; two of the couples will be in the bottom three.
Jésus and Sara did a paso doble to, of all things, Queen's "We Will Rock You." The dancers were praised by the judges, even as the song choice (not their fault) was questioned. B-girl Sara got particular praise (and a little "special" attention from Nigel, if you get what I mean). But since there's only one couple left to go in the bottom three, Cat's gotta draw out the drama and not say how they did just yet.
Shauna and Jimmy did a hip-hop routine that included a step routine in the middle. Nigel liked it, and called it fun. Again, though, Car's not ready to reveal how they did just yet.
Faina and Cedric did Hunter Johnson's foxtrot. Cedric came in for some criticism, while Faina got high marks. Remember this at the end of the show. Faina did well, Cedric did not. I can't stress this enough.
So: Sara and Jésus are safe. Which means the other two couples are in the bottom three. Mia's shocked that Pasha and Jessi are in the bottom three. Same for Mary, who is going to "pray" that they won't be going home.. Nigel agrees, surprise. He understands why Jimmy and Shauna are, even though he thought they were great. Instead of elaborating, he just points out there's always going to be a bottom three. He harps again on how Cedric is a problem for partnering. He wasn't knocked out by Cedric's hip-hop, and didn't like his foxtrot. "I'm not sure this competition is right for you," he says, because while Cedric is a good dancer, he has a hard time doing other people's choreography. Cat gives the four at-risk dancers on the stage a little pep talk. "You can do it!" she chirps, advising them to "bring it" for their solo routines, and then, before going to break, threatens the audience with a performance by Daddy Yankee.
