The dancers head upstage while the judges deliberate. I'm seriously filled with hatred for Nancy right now. Nomi asks who should win the challenge. They all love Mochi. They love Nick too. He's soaking in their advice. Toni says that the most obvious mistake in the performance was Miguel falling out of his turns. They think Cody was boring. Nancy says that stupid cliché about how you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. I think it's quite a stretch to try to apply that to this situation.
They're done deliberating. Nomi says that it's been difficult for them. It doesn't do them any good, but there is a winner for the challenge. Nick and Mochi are called forward. Toni tells Mochi that she was flawless. Nancy calls Nick "Nicholas" again. She loved the whole package. Vincent declares Nick the winner. They are both through to the grand finale. Toni tells Cody that he fell into a typical dancer trap -- showing the audience what they should be feeling instead of experiencing something yourself. Vincent tells Janelle that he loves her energy, but her technique was lacking. Nancy tells Miguel that his technique is inconsistent. Cody is safe. He hugs Miguel and Janelle before he leaves the stage. Nomi says that no matter what happens, they're both amazing dancers. Miguel is safe. Janelle is going home on her birthday. She and Miguel share a big hug.
Janelle thanks the judges and says that she has had a great experience. Vincent tells her that she has been a bright light. Jerry tells her that her last dance should be a happy one because she's just beginning. They slo-mo her spastic hip-hop routine, so it looks touching and sad. She interviews that we bitches better be ready for what she's got coming. She gives a peace sign as she leaves the studio.Jeff's lineage is less passion and fire, more good follicles and a loud laugh. He can be reached at email@example.com.
