Luther said there was nothing that Melissa could not do, and Shane had so much talent and did everything well and they were both destined for major success;
Blake said they clearly stole the show, they were two of the strongest dancers on the show, it was a flawless performance, and Shane killed every single week, and Melissa shows Canada exactly what it means to be a dancer;
Tré said it was the best performance of the night by far, Shane would have a great career after the show and he was meant to be a winner, and Melissa had had the hardest journey on the show and had done it well;
Jean-Marc said they were completely outside their genre, Shane owned the salsa and he is dance, and Melissa dances like a winner every time.

Jean-Marc said Lindsay was liquid, Melissa was mad and talented, Jordan was joy and freedom, individually so unique but together so strong.
