    Hmm.. I am late on reviewing this. Oh well. Uh, Mia was being super annoying as a judge. I hate her hair style now. I mean, her choreography was stunning but I was just disagreeing with her on some of the performances.

    Chelsea and Thayne do a Jazz routine choreographed by Mandy Moore. The choreography, concept, and music was stunning. The rest was very bad though. Chelsea's costume made her look like a joker, and the dancing was horribly performned and very weak.

    Mark and Chelsie H perform a Tango (Argentine, if I remember correctly) choreographed by Alex Da Silva. I absoutely loved it, everything was working for them. What they were wearing, and the technique was there. Mark was doing really good for going out of his style.

    Matt and Kourtni dance a foxtrot choreographed by Jean-Mark Genereaux. I love his choreography, and as much as I love Kourtni (she's one of my favorites) it just wasn't good enough. She was taking really short steps and her arms were all over the place. Meh.

    Will and Jessica perform a hip hop routine choreographed by Cicely and Olisa. I hate these two choreographers, honestly. They put Ivan and Allison in the bottom for one of their routines in season 2. Jessica just did horribly. Will didn't do nearly as good as the judges said he did.

    Gev and Courtney G do Contemporary choreographed by Mandy Moore. It's unusual seeing Mandy making a Contemporary piece, but I adored it and the two executed it very well, technique and emotion wise.

    Joshua and Katee dance a Broadway routine choreographed by Tyce Diorio. Tyce is amazing. As much as I hate these two, they did absoutely stunning and were full of energy, it was very fun.

    Marquis and Susie dance a Salsa routine. This routine was hard. I don't know if Alex purposely made it difficult because he thought Susie was a profesional Salsa dancer, but if any other couple on the show got this dance they wouldn't have done it any better. I adored the routine just because I'm bias for this couple, but they ended up in the bottom 3...

    Twitch and Kherington dance a Viennese Waltz choreographed by Jean-Mark. Kherington looked really professional and nice in white, but I have to agree with Mia her smile just seems so fake at times. It's a nice smile though. Twitch was amazing for going out of his style.

    The night is closed with Comfort and Chris dancing krump choreographed by Lil'C. Comfort did good but that's expected from her because this is her style, Chris was kinda meh just because he wasn't hitting anything hard enough. Nigel was not funny in his critique of this performance though.

    Overall I was dissapointed on quite a few of the performances tonight. It really let a few couples shine though, like Chelsie and Mark.moreless
