  • 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, except this week reveals a new twist; when the females pick their partner, the males pick two dance styles. Each pair will dance twice, each time to a different style, but they will not hear from the judges until after the second dance. This week, Dan, Nigel, Mary and Brian are the judges. The 8 dancers complete round 1 in the following pairs: Nick and Kamilah (mambo and contemporary), Blake and Melody (lyrical and disco), Artem and Ashle (fox trot and cha cha) and Jamile and Melissa (hip-hop and paso doble). In round 2, 2 couples are put up for elimination. These couples then dance as individuals and the audience votes for who to save at the end of the show.moreless
