Oh this week....kinda made me want to take a shower after it was over. It was better than last week overall, but weird. Anyone else feel the same? And why, oh why will Cat not say the word judges? Just because it sounds like she's saying choodges, that's part of her charm.
Cat and Mary were working the Grecian look tonight. And Nigel looked like he just got back from the mall in his Members Only jacket. Tony Basil holds a special place in my heart. Yes, she does!..if only she would carry her pom-poms with her a la "Hey Mickey!" Who knew she was so "street" and hip-hoppy?
The dancers, this week, explained what they would be doing if they were not dancers. There were a few surprises, I think. So, onto the dances...
The journalist and the carni (Carla & Jonahan) started the night off with a Dave Scott hip hop number. I actually liked their outfits. Yes I did! But Jonathan is soooo not gangsta. The judges seemed to agree.
Onto the jewelery maker & the singer (Asuka & Vitolio). Holy crap, I thought she was going to throw in nipple tassles as part of her craft inventory. Their dance (a jazz routine by Mandy Moore) was like watching an early 80's porn video (which I do ALL the time so don't bother to comment on that). There was complete overkill on the tongues sticking out and rocker hand motion thingy. The judges seemed to think it was alright and that they have potential.
The Pilates instructor and the sound engineer (Melissa & Ade) shook out a rumba by Tony Merideth. I really like the dancing and so did the judges. But again, a little too much V-neck on Ade and while Melissa looked beautiful, I'm sure she had double sided tape all over her strangely muscular body!
Now for the loan processor and lighting and design tech (Jeanette & Brandon). They did another hip hop routine by Dave Scott. Jeanette's outfit!!! Am I starting to sound like an old lady or what? But I really feel like I could not let my kids watch this and I thought this was "family friendly". Oh well....I LOVED the dancing. Yes I did! I thought it was great that they did not have to be perfectly synchronized the whole time. That seemed to be a sticking point with the judges for the other couples. Did anyone else think that Brandon's gay-ness was showing more tonight? The judges like their routine.
The model and the costume designer (Kayla & Kupono) perpormed a waltz choreographed by Jean Marc and France. I thought it was really beautiful and it didn't hurt that their outfits were modest. Has anyone seen my Geritol and Metamucil? Mary actually put them on the Hot Tamale Train, but the others thought it was too safe.
The elementary teacher and cutom car builder (Randi & Evan) did a contemporary dance by Mia Micheals that was all about the (gulp) BUTT. While I like the outfits, I must have said "Oh dear!" out loud about 5 times during the routine. I'm excited that the judges all really liked them and the dance and the choreographer, butt (Ha! Get it?) oh dear.
Onto the broadcast journalist and soccer player (Caitlin & Jason). They did a passe doble by Jean Marc & France. They were dressed as sexy warriors. I liked it and the judges thought it was fearless. The music, I thought, kinda made me like it.
Last but not least is the actress and inventor (Jeanine & Phillip) rockin' out a Broadway routine by Tyce Diorio. I loved the 50's style. Yes I did! Poor Phillip tore his pants and Jeanine couldn't keep her dress down, but I thought they did great. I can see what the judges mean when they say that they need for Phillip to step up even more. You can tell that he's trying and I think America loves him and wants him to stick around, but in a few weeks I think he might be in trouble....
My prediction for the bottom three couples is...
Carla & Jonathan
Asuka & Vitolio
Kayla & Kupono
Here's to Asuka & Kupono going home! Tune in tomorrow for the results. I'm excited because The Veronica's are performing! I like them! Yes I do!
