Ryan Kasprzak is in the final group. He'll have to have the dance of his life! When we come back from commercial, Ryan tells us that he's trying to calm down and do well. Frankly, I think he's trying a little too hard. He's making odd faces and stomping into his spots. Anyway, Nigel tells him that he got an extra chance after the hip hop because his solo was outstanding. Today, Nigel says it was "frighteningly strong", with "nothing of the style involved with this routine". He's cut. We see him call Evan to tell him the news. Well, there you go. Bye, Ryan! Everyone still seems to really like you! That's gotta count for something, right?
We're done except for contemporary dancer John Litzler and B-boy Legacy, who get one last solo. John auditioned in New Orleans, where he did some fancy flippy-flippy. Mia observes his solo with a stony glare. Nigel complains about John's emotionless face during the dance and then votes no. Mary and Adam vote yes. Debbie thinks there are stronger dancers and votes no. Mia votes no. It's down to Tyce, which has to be worrying. Tyce votes no, and John goes home. Although Nigel and Adam both tell him to audition again next season, which is nice.
Legacy is tearing up and might be tensing up a bit. And here he goes! He does some big moves and appears to enjoy himself out there. Nigel tells him that his cha-cha stinks (oh, you never want to hear that on national television!) and that he'll have to learn to dance on his feet as well as on his head. Nigel and Tyce vote yes. Mia calls him a [bleep-bleep] and complains that he stops too much. That's valid, I think. The moves could be chained together a little better. Yes for Mia. Yes for Debbie. Adam emphasizes transitions (by saying "Transitions. Transitions. Transitions") and also votes yes.
Somewhere offscreen, Teddy and Skip got cut. That part always feels anticlimactic, doesn't it? Where we were following people closely right up but we don't get to see them leave?
Next week: More Vegas! Um, "Baby!"
