Janelle and Miguel are in a bedroom together and Janelle says that Cody and Mochi are "so classy and innocent." Being the cheerleader who did beer bongs doesn't make you worldly, Janelle. Just trashy. And possibly a former roommate of mine. Miguel says that they are not "the next big dance stars." Um, I'm pretty sure at least one of them is. Janelle says they are more like "the next big dance partners," which really turns over Miguel's giggle box. Miguel says that he and Janelle could be dancing for the next 10 years. I find this all very annoying, quite possibly because I'm old. Janelle says that she doesn't "want" to call them old, but . . . Asshole. She says to Miguel that in 10 years, there are going to be flying cars. I think I need to make a phone call to someone just to make sure I wasn't that completely stupid when I was 18. I know I was at least kind of stupid, but I don't know if I could handle the embarrassment of being quite as stupid as Janelle is. Miguel might not look young for much longe if he keeps drinking as much wine as he seems to (he has a glass with him right now. He actually doesn't look that young at all right now. He should zip it. Anyway, he laughs at Janelle's stupid flying car bit. Janelle interviews that if she is dancing next to someone like Cody or Mochi, people will look at her. Wow, she is going to be embarrassed one day when she realizes how annoying she sounds right now. I guess it's necessary at some level to have that kind of opinion of yourself, but I so much prefer the kind of person who is just dedicated to her work ethic and making herself better.
The next morning, Nick is having breakfast and interviews that he wants to make it to the finals. His strategy is to not stick out in a bad way. Miguel and Janelle show up and Nick says that they are 25 minutes late (for breakfast?). Janelle says "Really?" like she's perfectly aware that she was late but that may just be me projecting because I'm so totally over her now. She interviews that she and Cody butted heads. She doesn't feel confident with what they came up with. Oscar interviews that the judges always have the same problems with him -- he is too balletic and too feminine. He knows that he needs to show them something besides the technical.
At the studio, Jerry and Tina greet the dancers. With an hour to work, Tina says that they have to combine her choreography with combinations that they came up with. They are going to start with the Tina choreography, then Nick's team, then Cody's team, and then 2 counts of 8 for a concluding extravaganza. Mochi says that it was a little tough putting the two teams together. There were blocking issues and she was concerned about somebody getting hurt. Miguel says that it was a dream come true to be rehearsed by Tina Landon. People really love saying her whole name. Often. The last 2 8-counts will end with a pose, and Tina tells them to make sure they're not hiding their faces. She interviews that she looks for dancers who are taking her direction and doing exactly what she says, but still making it look new.
