Tonight was weak. My favorite was Russell and Noelle with Afrojazz. I LOVE Russell- he has an inner-glow that shines through his smile and when he dances. Even so, it was missing something for me.
Channing and Victor’s was pretty good- loved the choreography and music selection, didn’t love the performance. But Karen and Kevin were great, as always. Karen is the strongest female contender.
Worst of the week definitely goes to Mollee and Nathan. I wish they would stop acting like 12-year-olds in the interview packages- it makes it awkward for all of us watching- like seeing a little sister try so hard to be sexy. (did you notice she high-fived the choreographer who told her she was sexy? ha!) And the dancing was so, so off.
But thankfully for them, many other couples were off too. Like Ryan and Ellenore in hip-hop and Pauline and Peter in the quick-step (although I agreed 110% with what the judges said about performance.)
I do think the judges were wrong on 2 things: 1) Ashleigh/her dance with Jakob. Nigel was wrong- this cane dance was not up to snuff with the table dance for Mandy Moore. Ashleigh is not nearly as good as they praise her for being, and I didn’t feel any of the intensity the judges felt. 2) Legacy and Kathryn’s routine wasn’t as bad as they made it out to be. And they tore Kathryn up for something her choreographer may have (probably) told her to do- act cute. The moves were all cutesy, and they stuck her in that cutesy outfit.
Predictions for bottom 3 couples: Ellenore and Ryan, Pauline and Peter, and Kathryn and Legacy (crossing my fingers this last won’t come true because it should be Mollee and Nathan.)
I guess we’ll see tonight…What did you think?
