  • Episode Description
  • At the beginning of the episode, 2 dancers from last week are cut. At that point, the competition continues in the same format as last week, the females pick their partner, the males pick two dance styles. Each pair will dance twice, each time to a different style, but this week they go back to the format where they hear from the judges after each dance. This week, Mia, Nigel, Mary and Dan are the judges. The 6 dancers complete round 1 in the following pairs: Kamilah and Jamile (hip-hop and American Jive), Ashle and Blake (smooth waltz and Argentine Tango), and Melody and Nick (Broadway and disco). In round 2 there is a twist. No couples are put up for elimination. All 6 dancers dance as individuals and the audience votes for who to save at the end of the show.moreless

  • The show starts with the eviction of the 4th couple reducing the playing field to 6. With 6 left, this should be one of the better shows? However, the focus has turned away from the individuals and toward the dance. Why then is the show less interesting?
