Adam jokes that it was the longest "wardrobe malfunction" he's ever seen, and then lest anyone think Mia Michaels is fallible, he talks about how awesome it was, and says it was like two thoroughbreds racing. Mary talks about how "relevant" the piece was, because it was like their own journey on the show. She says Jeanine and Kayla are the strongest women they've ever had on this show. Nigel says he's reminded of Danny and Neil's Two Princes routine, and Joshua and Twitch's routine, because it's easier to see the dancers next to each other to decide which one is your favorite. He calls it a modern update on The Seven Veils, and says he wanted the dance to continue, and for once I don't think he's hinting about how badly he wants to sleep with the dancers, but the audience and the judges take it that way.
After a commercial break, Cat sits down with Evan for his interview, and he admits that he wasn't planning to audition this year after he wasn't successful last year, and his teacher and a brother convinced him too (brotherly loyalty aside, I wonder if there's a part of Ryan that regrets Evan coming along). Evan says it was like a dagger in the heart to see Ryan not make it, and talks about how close he is to his family. Cat asks why so many people get off the couch to vote for him, and I have to ask why Cat assumes anyone's actually hauling their asses of the couch when they can just use their cellphones. Evan says it's because there hasn't been someone like him on the show before, and he promises to "drop the hammer" and "bring the thunder."
Unfortunately, that seems to mean using Michael Buble for his solo routine, which is uncharacteristically sedate. A lot of Broadway charm and posing, and it caps with a flip that really doesn't seem to come in on time.
Adam points out that the routine was very close to his audition piece, which could be risky, if people think, "Hey, I've seen that before." But, Adam tells him, "What you do, you do unbelievable great." Mary talks a whole lot about how people love him and he's inspiring, which is her way of avoiding getting booed on the season finale for offering any criticism, and Nigel does the same thing, by talking about how special Evan is, and how he brings "the 'aw' factor." Wait, Nigel comes through and shows he's not worrying about getting booed, since he does say he doesn't think Evan's grown as much as he should have, and also that he hasn't danced as strongly as the other dancers tonight. The booing starts, lightly, and Cat asks the audience if they liked the dance, and everyone screams, which is why a good thing it's not up to them who... oh, that's right. It is up to them.
