Episode Recap

At the beginning of the episode, the audience votes from last week are revealed with Snow and Allan cut from the competition.

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.

This week, Brian, Mia, Nigel and Dan are the judges. Mary will take part in the choreography. Since Melody got the most votes last week, she gets to eliminate Jamile as a potential partner, saying she chose him because he's too tall.

The first pair of dancers is Melissa and Artem. They dance in pop style to "Don't Cha (Remix)." The judges have mixed feelings about their performance. Next, Kamilah and Nick dance the Tango to "Tanguedia." The judges are impressed. Melody draws Ryan's name and he draws lyrical style. They dance to "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." The judges were not overwhelmed by the performance. Next, Destini and Jamile dance Quick Step to "Sing, Sing, Sing (with a Swing)." The judges were not kind. The last couple to dance their first style was Ashle and Blake, who danced Samba to "Jazz Machine." The judges loved it! The first couple to dance again was Kamilah and Nick. They danced Pop to "I Drove All Night (Club Remix)." The judges said good things about their rendition. Next, Melody and Ryan danced the Fox Trot to "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby." The judges were not impressed, as they thought that Ryan really messed it up for the pair. Ashle and Blake drew lyrical style and they danced to "Right Here Waiting." The judges loved their performance. Melissa and Artem took the stage again with the Quick Step. They danced to "Big Swing Face" and the judges loved it. To finish the round, Destini and Jamile danced Hip Hop to "Shake" and got huge kudos from the judges.

In round 2, the couples put up for elimination were Melody and Ryan and Destini and Jamile. The judges expressed their regret to Destini and Jamile, as they thought their second performance was fabulous. These dancers each danced as individuals with Melody dancing to "Giving Him Something He Can Feel," Ryan dancing to "Know the Ledge," Destini dancing to "Bring on the Men" and Jamile dancing to "Give It To Me Baby." Following Jamile's dance, voting was opened to the audience.
