"I'm so in love with what you just did," says Adam, who says they weren't dancers, but acting in their own little world, and it's one of the best routines that's ever been on television ever. Mary is actually crying (as is Mia in the audience) and can't speak. Nigel speaks for her, saying that she's going through her own personal tine right now, "so forgive her." Then he speaks about how honoured he is to be on the show with Mia Michaels, and how touched he was by the routine, and how it's one of the most beautiful things ever. He also seems to be on the verge of tears but (I'm sorry) it looks like he's trying to make himself cry. As Cat gives out the numbers, Lacey and Neil classily pay their respect to this "moving" tribute to Mia's dad by mugging for the camera. Lacey actually sticks a flower in her mouth and spits it out. No tears in heaven, guys.
Sabra and Pasha are up with the quick step, done by Tony Meredith. There's a lot of hopping and jumping. Sabra says there's a lot of running. She's confused but determined. "Mr. Pinstripe Suit" by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is the song. They're in their finest 1920s attire, albeit with more sparkly things all over their clothes. They look good to me, but I'm a big fan of Sabra and Pasha -- no matter what they're doing, they seem to have so much fun that their actual dancing seems effortless. Adam calls it awesome, praises the choreography, notes how well they used the entire stage, and lauds the attitude. "You freak me out, you are so good, young lady," says Adam, who I'm kind of surprised, in keeping with the theme of the evening, doesn't say she's maybe the best female dancer who's ever existed ever or will ever exist. Mary loved it too. "You guys just tore this up!" she yells. And then she yells it again. And she laughs a lot. She blows them kisses. Nigel says after the emotional routine that preceded them, they needed something with a lot of energy, and they got it. He says they did a terrific job, and coupled with their Broadway routine, "you're the best couple of the night for me." Finally, something we agree on.
