Okay, this next filler segment is really pushing it. Cat introduces him, and to the best of my knowledge, it sounds like he's called "Christian TV." [That is his name. And the song is about basically getting in a girls pants when she's of age. Confusing. - Angel] And like the cable networks that bear his name, I want no part of him. I'm not even doing that cooler-than-thou thing where I pretend not to know what a Justin Beiber is. I honestly don't know what this guy's deal is. Here's what I do know: he can't sing, and he looks like Benji Schwimmer and/or Lucky Spencer circa 1997. I guess he's supposed to be preppy-cute? I say he's allowed have a poofy fauxhawk OR a rat-tail, but not both. That's the extent of my opinion about Christian TV.
After a promo for National Dance Day (um, it's ALWAYS National Dance Day for me; don't tell me what to do, Uncle Nigel), it's time for solos. Which, again, mean nothing, because Lauren is so incredibly not leaving. Jose's breaking is a bit slowish, but it's a decent swan song. Billy goes high-concept again, like he did last night. This almost never works in the limited time frame of the solos, but he manages to deliver a quirky, focused routine that shows off his quality of movement while looking like it could have been choreographed by Sonya or Wade.
Again, it's a swan song, but what a brilliant one! And if he knows he's going home, which he must, he busts out a giant smile to the crowd after his final performance. Lauren's solo is, as usual perfection. Where does she even come up with the energy for these controlled bursts of movement? Girl will just explode herself into a flip or a split without any indication that it's coming. She's amazing.
The judges exit to deliberate, and while they do, Filler Segment #3 is a performance by the wonderful Allison Iraheta. She's accompanied by Orianthi on guitar (whatevs) and a pair of dancers who don't appear to belong to SYTYCD. Love ya, Allison, but the finish line is in sight. [What happened to getting to know the All-Stars? Did they give up on that? -- Angel]
