  • Part 1 of 2 part Finale. A Group Challenge choreographed to Michael Jackson's Man in the Mirror by Judges.

    9.1
    Buildup to 25th Anniversary performance of Thriller in promo spots was, basically, bait & switch. We saw only edited clips of that piece - and they were edited none too coherently. We did get a little deep background on each of the 5 dancers to make it to this level, some of which duplicated earlier information. Nice footage of Miguel at home with his family.



    The finalists all returned to LA and checked into their luxury suite, only to discover a note requesting they get to the rehearsal studio where Jerry and Elizabeth advise there will be an additional elimination challenge prior to their performance of solo choreography.



    Judges Vincent and Nancy will teach them a dance to Man in the Mirror that they will perform in unison. Much emotional upheaval by those with lesser technique and experience.



    Nancy berates Cody and calls him a Snob, not just in rehearsal, but also during judging, where-in Elizabeth defends him. Really, Nancy's comments are uncalled for and I was pleased to see Berkeley step out of the presenter mode to protect a contestant. Nick wins the challenge and Janelle is sent packing - later than I believe should have happened since they said in the second week she would have been leaving if she hadn't had immunity and was in the bottom several times and passed over for clearly more experienced and better trained dancers.moreless
