About one year later than we should have, Twitch is going to take the stage. He talks about how last year it came down to him and Hok. In some of the interviews, he's shaved off the facial hair, which makes him look about ten years younger. He's dancing with Kherington, who missed her high school graduation to be here. They're doing a Tyce Diorio Broadway joint called "Too Darn Hot" from Kiss Me Kate. Very sleek and sexy, Twitch tells us, who keeps getting kicked in the face by Kherington.
She climbs up his back and falls to the side, him catching her. They dance around each other, while she kicks, managing to miss him. I normally hate this kind of dance, but she's great, and he's revelatory for a hip-hop dancer, and they end in an embrace on stage.
Nigel loves them, and I wish for once he could praise specific dance things a woman does, at the very least before he goes on about his boner. He praises Twitch. Mary yells at everyone to look up at the ceiling because the sprinkler system is about to go off. This would be bad news for Mary, because since she can't keep her mouth closed, she'd soon drown. She hollers at Kherington about how good she is, and screams at Twitch that she's proud of him. Dan adds to the compliments of Kherington, and says Twitch ain't exactly a traditional Broadway dancer, but he's never been much for tradition. Let's hear it for Twitchington!
Comfort and Chris are up next, she of the hip-hop. She talks about partner-dancing with her brother before, but couldn't handle looking at her brother all sexual. Is that a requirement? And if it is, isn't faking it a large part of partnering anyway? We revisit Chris being told by Nigel that sometimes he has the personality of a tree. I'm not sure why that's a problem; there are some funny-ass birch trees in my backyard.
They're dancing the jive by Tony Meredith, and Chris talks an awful lot about Comfort's booty. But I guess when the executive producer of the show you're on is in the habit of openly salivating at the female contestants, you might as well follow suit, right? "Boom Boom" by Big Head Todd and the Monsters. They dance under individual spotlights and strobe lights. She's in a white beaded-fringe bikini and he has on a rhinestone-studded vest. They nail the jive, although certain elements come off slightly corny -- you know, like strumming her leg like a guitar.
