Adrian Lee gets Mary Murphy. She talks to him about his journey, which we've already seen on the show, as well as having had it recapped in front of us in a segment I didn't bother writing down. Mary tells him that he isn't in the top five, but they want him to come back. Because they celebrate him. He vows that he'll be back, and Mary seems to feel bad about delivering the bad news in person.
Lexi Contursi gets a call from Nigel, who tells her she's not in the top five girls. Sorry, Lexi. Also cut: DJ Smart, Bridget Krause, Serge Ornick, and Anthony Kim.
Hey, you know what would make this dance show more fun? If this hour had some dancing in it.
Lauren Froderman gets a phone call (although the close-up on her phone says her ringer is off) from Nigel. I guess Nigel isn't going to fly to Phoenix for this. Oh, wait! He's outside her door right now. With her mail carrier. "Oh ... my gosh!" says Lauren, and I can understand where she's coming from. See, this swerve was fine. Everyone's delighted. Nigel tells her she was one of the best dancers in Vegas Week, repeats that they can't bring just contemporary girls. And they're slightly more likely to take older dancers who can't come back next year, and anyway she's obviously in. Good for her. Her family seems happy for her.
Anthony Burrell lives in Harlem and gets a visit from Mia Michaels. This freaks him out a little, and I think that's perfectly understandable. He tells her that his big toe won't stop shaking. Mia tells him that he didn't make it in and begs him to come back next year. She recommends rising above the problems.
Tyce DiOrio dances in the Miami airport.
Ashley Galvan: Li'l C takes off from Los Angeles, and he appears to be driving his own car, unlike the other judges. When he gets there, he cheerfully messes with Ashley and her family, saying that everyone's desperate for him to just say the answer. "Unfortunately ... I have to tell you ... and your number one support system ... that you ... will not be around for the next couple months because you're gonna be on the show."
Kent Boyd has gotten a great deal of screen time, hasn't he? Nigel is on his way to Wapokaneta, but he stops off in a coffee shop to call Chris Cole and Katie Mewth, Missy Morelli, and Cheryl Smith and tell them that they're not making it. And I probably misspelled some or all of their names. Sorry!
