The kids are dancing to "Brand New Day" from The Wiz. They're in a painting and an art museum closes and they bust out of the painting and begin dancing around. Now is where I usually complain about the camera work that makes me miss half the dance. I'm not going to belabor the point. I think I'm going to send a hateful tweet to Nigel. I have that power. :) I was highly distracted by Kayla's nude leotard. Her costume was completely different from the other girls' costumes. And it was nude fabric. It makes you look twice whether you want to or not.
First Group for Results - one couple is safe and one is in the bottom 3:
Vitolio & Karla are...in the bottom 3.
Evan & Randi are safe!
Second Group for Results -
Brandon & Janette are...safe.
Kayla & Kupono are...in the bottom 3.
Ade & Melissa are safe!
Mia liked Kayla & Kupono's performance the most last night, and is SHOCKED! Me, I didn't love it. It takes 3 or 4 viewings for Sonya's pieces to grow on me. I'm sure if Kayla & Kupono make it on the tour, we'll see that one and I'll like it more.
Third Group for Results -
Phillip & Jeanine are...in the bottom 3. (WHAT?!?)
Jason & Caitlin are safe. They're lucky. They're talented, and I like them. But they're lucky.
Emily just said that it doesn't look like Cat combed her hair tonight. I have to agree. It also seems like she messes it up every time tey go to commercial.
Patricia & Desmond from Complexions Contemporary Ballet are our special guests tonight. That girl was in her opening pose en pointe forever. She rules. That was fantastic. So talented. So strong.
Karla - I liked that one. Not as manic as last week.
Vitolio - I didn't love that one. Can't tell you why exactly. It didn't jive for me.
Kayla - Is it me, or does she open every solo with an extension? I didn't love it, but I don't htink they are sending her home.
Kupono - That was a bit more restrained from him too. It seemed more musical. Wasn't too flashy. That could be good or bad.
Jeanine - Interesting music choice. Did she fall backward and lose her balance in the middle? I like her. Let's keep her.
Phillip - That was fantastic. There's no way they'll get rid of him at this point. They need him for tour.
Kelly Clarkson! I love Kelly. I don't love her outfit. The way the shirt is cutting her across her hips, it makes her look short. And she's already short. And the extra fabric isn't helping either. But man, she can wail. Love her. I believe that is the first performance I've watched all the way through this season.
The judges are deliberating. I think it is Vitolio & Karla.
Jeanine is safe! Hurray! Kayla is put on notice. Too many kicks and arabesques and not enough dancing. Karla is sent home. I'm sad to see her leave, but she never quite got her personality out there.
They're keeping Phillip. Nigel gave a long and kind of rudely drawn out speech to tell him that. They're giving Kupono one more week. Vitolio is going home.
I'm happy with this choice tonight. Next week is going to be awful. The last week before top 10 always is. See you then!
