Episode Summary

Top 14
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 the females pick the partner and the males pick the style.

This week, Mia is replaced by Mary as a judge (Mia has the chance to choreograph instead). Nigel, Brian and Dan are still judges.

The 14 dancers complete round 1 in the following pairs: Snow and Jamile (Quick Step), Destini and Blake (Lyrical Jazz), Melody and Craig (Hip Hop), Michelle and Nick (Quick Step), Ashle and Artem (Lyrical Jazz), Kamilah and Allan (Hip Hop) and Melissa and Ryan (Salsa). Everyone was amazed at the number of pairs that were re-united from last week.

In round 2, the couples put up for elimination danced as individuals and the audience voting was opened.moreless

  • The same old dancers came out and did the same old moves. The best part of the show is the commentary. Can we vote for more than two at a time to go home?moreless

    The show formula here is easy to figure out. It is 1 part Old English Gentleman, 2 parts Hip hop, and one part wildcard. At least that is the make up of the judges. These judges seem to be knowledgable enough in their fields. However, this show is lacking in major point. Dance is repetitive. Granted they have names for everything from popping and locking to busting a frame. As a general customer, all this mumbo jumbo loses me.

    This show fails to distinguish its competitors enough on their dancing ability. Thus far, people seem to be voting on personality alone. I guess that is why this overlong 2 hour show is required. They have to sell the personality for an hour, and, oh yeah, add a dance competition. This show has interesting judges and interesting contestants. Why didn't they make the dancing more interesting?moreless
  • this was a really good episode

    i was so happy that ryan and melissa were partnered together never mind being told they were the best of the night and could work together professionally! I thought they would do horrible after watching what they did during practice. I thought that almost every performance was really good and I hope sandra and jonnis go home.
