Afterwards, Cat reveals it was by Nigel Lythgoe. "Clearly a man of many hidden talents!" says Cat. Yeah, who knew Nigel had such an affinity for dance? He gripes that he was known as the sixth Moe: "Old Moe."
Cat -- love her -- seems genuinely distressed at having to let one of the men go this week. Joshua is safe, after being threatened by Cat to stay in line lest she sic his grandfather on his ass. Will? Do we even need to ask? Safe. Mark? In the bottom two. Twitch? Safe. Gev? In the bottom two.
Comfort comes out for some great popping, now that it doesn't make a difference. Well, I suppose if she stays she might win a few more fans for next week. Cat asks Nigel if it must be tough for Comfort to come back into the competition. Nigel says there's nothing tough about it; it's another opportunity! Mary babbles some nonsense about how if Comfort dances every week like she danced the hip-hop last night, she'll be here for a long time. Really? She danced the hip-hop LAST NIGHT, and she's in the bottom two TONIGHT. Lil' C talks about "perpetual evolution" and then Comfort says "for real" and Cat says "for real for real" and I have no idea what's going on.
Mark comes out and dances to Ram Jam's "Black Betty," prompting everyone who voted for him to immediately rush to the phone to call and ask if they can vote for Gev instead. Nigel and Mary talk some nonsense about how hard dancing is, or something. Lil' C calls Mark the "instrumental worker bee for the art hive" and advises him to keep doing what he's doing. Which is what got him in the bottom two, isn't it?
Kherington's in short shorts again. It's too late, Kherington. Not very interesting solo. But if she's going out, she's going out smiling, dammit.
Lil' C says, "We don't hate you, Kherington. We love you." ["This was in reference to her comment in the recap that the judges hated her. It actually kind of made me like Lil' C more, because he's a judge who pays attention...instead of just screaming." -- Angel] He says that her ride was been turbulence-free, but you can't get upset just because the heat got turned up in the kitchen, and... well, he's lost me now. But he wants her to take everything as constructive criticism. Mary says she initially thought Kherington was in the bottom half of the top twenty dancers, but has been a front-runner all throughout the competition, and she's shocked to see Kherington in the bottom two now. Nigel points out that in addition to being a good dancer, Kherington's also a babe. "It isn't just about dancing as well, I would hope," he says, and Cat sums up his leerings in the much nicer "charisma."
