Nick's final dance to "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" is not the first time this song has been danced to in this competition. Melody and Ryan danced to it in a previous episode.
Julie: [About Blake] One word...wow!
Julie: [About Blake's final dance] I need to catch my breath...unbelievable...look at this crowd.
Dan: [To Melody and Nick] There are people on this show that can really dance and people on this show that can really perform. You're both.
Nigel: [To Nick after the disco performance] I'm so pleased that Ryan Seacrest lent you his shirt for the night.
Nigel: [To Melody and Nick] Without question, you two are my favorite.
Mia: [Regarding the disco performance] Melody, this is the first time I've seen you dance out of your 'Melody Zone.'
Nigel: [To Ashle and Blake regarding their Argentine Tango] I felt nothing.
Mary: [To Ashle and Blake after their Argentine Tango] I wanted you guys to devour each other and you didn't.
Mary: [To Kamilah and Jamile] Not good enough at this stage.
Nigel: [To Kamilah] You started to look a little like a junior Tina Turner.
Mia: [To Kamilah and Jamile] It felt amateurish.
Nigel: [To Melody and Nick on Broadway] You got a standing ovation, but your performance was greater than that.
Julie: [To Melody and Nick] You guys look hot tonight!
Mia: [To Ashle and Blake on their smooth waltz] It was like watching a Disney fairy tale story.
Mary: [In reponse to Nigel's comment that political leaders should dance] I don't know if I want to see Bush doing any krumping.
Nigel: I can see Bush "krumping" already.
Mia: [To Kamilah and Jamile] Did I think it was the best hip hop? No.
Julie: [To Kamilah and Jamile] You've got the entire audience on their feet!

This is the first time Blake has had to dance as an individual for audience votes.
This is the first week where the judges don't have the opportunity to put couples up for elimination. The only power the judges had was the influence the voting audience with their critiques.

"Santa Maria" is by Gotan Project.
"Jump Jive'an Wail" is by Louis Prima.
Melody and Nick's Broadway dance caused Mary to scream and freak-out!
"All That Jazz" is by Ute Lemper.
Both times Ashle and Blake danced, they caused an argument to ensue between Dan and the other judges. The first time Dan was the only judge who had a negative thing to say; the second time Dan was the only judge that had a glowing review.
