Anyway. Chelsea has a great personality, says Nigel, and she brightens up the stage. But she'll have to step up, because there are better dancers here. For tonight, she's safe.
Nigel tells Susie that she didn't use the stage as much as they would have liked. Something has cooled her down, he says, and she needs to rekindle the fire. Then he addresses Comfort, saying she has not lived up to her potential. He thinks that maybe she came alive during the Shane Sparks routine, and that's why they're keeping her. Am I nuts, or isn't it supposed to be based on their solos? Isn't that the point of dancing for their lives? Shenanigans!
After Susie's farewell montage, Susie thanks the choreographers and the show for the opportunity.
And now the men: Nigel says it was really difficult, but the judges were unanimous. He points out that it's the three contemporary boys all in the bottom three, and there's no question they're all brilliant dancers.
Thayne has a great personality, and a lot of potential. Marquis: very good dancer, but they thought he was all tricks tonight, and not dance. Man, talk about subjective! And Chris is bringing out the personality Nigel has asked for. And from those comments, it appears obvious that it's going to be Marquis leaving, and that's just what's happening, prompting catcalls from the audience.
Cat -- whose generosity and compassion for everyone involved on this show always impresses me -- tells him he's going to be brilliant, and we watch the goodbye montage. Farewell, Marquis! We hardly knew ya! He says it's been an awesome road, and he can't wait to keep heading down it.
