Okay, so now we're ending the show with something nobody knows anything about. Kent vs. Robert in a "Malevos Fight" routine. According to the choreographers (Miriam Larici And Leonardo Barrionuevo), "Malevos" means gangster. There are lifts and footwork. Okay, let's do it! They're in pinstripes and do some strutting. The footwork suggests to me that this is really a tango. Kent pulls off a hurricanrana on Robert. The jackets come off. It's fun.
Nigel tells us that this is what men do to "practice their tango," which sounds like a euphemism. Anyway, there you go: it's a two-man tango but they don't want to make it sexy. Nigel talks about how much everyone's danced tonight and begs people to vote. Mia liked it and openly admits that she's kind of babbling. She does work in a comment about the leg work. Adam reluctantly comments on the precision of the moves although he knows that it's "America's Favorite Dancer." He says that these three are his favorite three dancers across all seasons and points out that this is the youngest finale ever. And he can't wait to work with all three of them.
Okay, at this point, I think the judges honestly don't care who wins. They seem to like everyone who's left. And here are my rankings of the dances:
Robert/Mark Whip It
Kent/ Lauren F. Geek
Kent/Allison "Perfect Relationship"
Kent/Robert Maleva Fight
Kent/Lauren G. Bollywood
I thought all three finalists had a great night. My favorite moment, though, was Kent explaining how he felt coming out of the dance with Allison. I mean, I knew all of them could dance; I wasn't ready for a good piece of introspection.
