Episode Summary

Top 12 Results
AIRED:
The remaining 12 dancers performed an opening number choreographed by Doriona Sanchez and set to "Born to be Alive." Next, we saw backstage and recap footage from last week and then Nigel revealed a change in rules.

Partners will now be randomly chosen (in the same style as last season) instead of partners staying together until one is voted off. Dancers will now do 3 dances - 2 with their partner and 1 solo. America will now vote for soloists instead of partners. Judges will be taken out of the equation, with elimination relying only on America's votes.

Next, Cat revealed which couples were put up for elimination.

The first group of couples was: Benji and Donyelle who were safe, and Dmitry and Ashlee who were not safe.

The second group brought forward was: Travis and Martha who were not safe, and Ryan and Heidi who were safe.

The third group brought forward was: Ivan and Allison who were safe, and Musa and Natalie who were not safe.

Each dancer in the eliminated couples performed a solo of their choice for the judges.

While the judges took a break to decide which contestants should go home, the Pussycat Dolls performed.

When the judges returned, they announced who they decided to send home.moreless

  • Musa voted off, and I think that was a bad call!!!!

    8.2
    I'm sorry, when Musa got voted off I was not a happy person. Okay I'm being biased being he was one of my favorite dancers. I totally acknowledge he was not the best dancer, but he showed promise, and he really put his all into his routines. Even when he was not totally sure. While his partner carried him, Dmitry (until recently) carried his partners as well. I can say this, I admire these dancers so much more now, and have a different appreciation of dance. I know I would not be able to learn a new routine in one week the way these dancers do!!! New routine, new dance style, that is simply amazing!!!!



    The judges made such a big deal about the solos, and Musa's solo was simply fantastic, while Dmitry came out with shirt open, and just did some dramatic moves. It was a weak solo effort, not to mention I felt his dance performance with Ahsley was also not good, and I felt he should have gone home, but hey what do I know. I do know he has been in the bottom three a couple of times, his time to go home is coming.



    I am excited to see how the next episode will go. Now the dancers will be voted on individually, and they will dance with new partners. My concern is Donyelle, I hope she can get over her foot injury to fully compete. I think she is one of the stronger dancers who can win it all.moreless
  • Musa and Ahslee say goodbye.

    8.1
    I was really sorry to see Musa go. He did remarkably for someone with no dance training. And he did progress amazingly. But Unfortunately, the show is not about progress; it's about keeping up. And Musa did quite obviously fall behind the rest of the pack. When I saw the three guys on the chopping block, I knew he was the weakest, sadly. Just think what he could do if he actually did have dance training. I am sure he will be returning to the professional dance scene in full force at some point. I really was terribly disappointed this week with Dmitry's solo. I mean his solo's up until this point have been impeccable but this week was so blah. I'm no dance critic and I knew that even before Nigel spoke. Someone else's review mentioned he didn't progress much and I guess that is true. But unfortuantely he does keep up and his non ballroom routines were surprisingly decent. Hopefully America will see past the half-naked attempt at appealing to the female population and vote for the indvidual with the best talent. Obviously though, if he's been on the chopping block so many times already, America knows what it's doing and it's only a matter of time. He seemed obviously distraught to see Ashlee go and I think it really is sad to see them break just when their chemistry was just kicking in and Dmitry was finally getting along with a partner. The obvious front runners are Ivan, Donyelle, Benji, and Allison, although at this point in the competition it's an insanely close call between all the remaining dancers. Is anyone else consistently impressed with Ryan's level of humbleness?moreless
  • Ashlee and Musa were eliminated, from this reality based program to find the next dance star.

    7.3
    Now, I\'m not one to complain, but I have to speak. Now Ashlee got voted off, Dmitry\'s partner, I believe that\'s the fourth girl to be voted off that was dmitry\'s partner, pattern, strange pattern. So when the solo dance off results were announced, it got a little weird. Nigel spoke for the judges, some kind of time crunch. Now he told ashlee, that she was up against two of the strongest dancers, and that\'s why she was voted off, which is understandable. However he told Dmitry that Just showing up and showing your abs isn\'t enough, and that in his solo he gave them nothing. He then told Musa that his solo was outstanding, but he hasn\'t progressed enough with partners and other dancers. And voted off Musa. Now, to what I have seen of the show, Dmitry hasn\'t really progressed that much, and add that with the solo that gave Nigel nothing, and the fact that all his girl partners are being voted off, it begs the question, why is Dmitry still there if showing off his abs is enough. Now when America votes for the soloists one of two things are going to happen. All the people who think dmitry is attractive will vote for him, and \"people\" on the show will stop referring to the find that they find him attractive, and he will win, or America will say You had a nice run, but it\'s over.moreless
