Heidi and Travis
Shake your Groove Thing
Peaches and Herb
Decent. Disco is not my favorite style, but it's at least better than the quickstep and slow waltz. I think the outfits are the best part of this dance style.
Donyelle and Benji
Vienniese Waltz-snore! I don't think it's fair to give one couple upbeat disco and the other the Vietnamese Waltz. Everytime a couple does a waltz-like dance, I can only picture cotillion ballroom dance lessons and a room filled with preteen boys and girls who stay on opposite sides of the room.
Heidi - solo
Rie y Llora
Arriba! I want to know what is on the bottom of their shoes that makes them not slip. Heidi's hips and legs move incredibly fast and when she's not moving them at light speed, she's making some crazy facial expression to distract us from it. And I think she really wants us to know she's flexible.
Benji and Travis
Da Muzicianz feat. Mr. Colliark
Is "Tranji" a little too close to "Transvestite" for anyone else? And I get that guys can dance together and it not be weird, but to hold one up with his crotch in the other's face? That just seemed a bit weird to me. The hip-hop routine was hot, though, and I think it was smart to have them 'play' nerdy characters. Whenever these guys do hip-hop and try to act all tough it just comes off as comical. This time, at least the comedy was on purpose.
Donyelle - solo
I don't really like Donyelle. I think she should have been kicked out before Allison. That said, I think she finally did a decent solo routine and then FINALLY spoke to the audience with her "it's amazing" line. It's like she knows she's going to lose. I think she should have given more personality in these last few weeks of the show.
Travis - solo
Obviously the most technical dancer there. That spin where he bent his leg and kept it centered was amazing in my opinion. I wish he was taller, but that's just a preference. And I think he finally lived up to his spikey hair.
Donyelle and Heidi
Sweet Charity (Original Broadway Cast)
I agreed with the judges, when they finished I was like, "That's it?" I liked the choreography, I just think there needed to be MORE of them. Stage presence or something. And I found it distracting that Heidi had low-rise pants and Donyelle had on a form of 1990 mom pants. What was up with that? Those pants made her ass look enormous.
Benji - solo
The House is Rockin'
The Brian Setzer Orchestra
If solos were the test for the winner, I think Benji would win. He's a showmen and the audience eats it up! And I'm glad Brian Setzer is getting some royalties from his song being used. I didn't think anyone liked him. Oooops!
Donyelle and Travis
Georgia on my Mind
I liked this routine A LOT, but was worried the whole time that Travis was going to choke and die on that damn straw in his mouth. And the ending with Donyelle taking it out of his mouth did nothing for me and made the prop unnecessary in my opinion. And Donyelle's pants again! WHY!?
Heidi and Benji
1. The split spin was amazing and 2. That hold Heidi did at the end equaled abs o' steel! Am I correct that Benji and Heidi won the West Coast Swing Contest together? That seems unfair to me. Oh well, I like them both enough that it's ok.
Dancing? What dancing? I was too excited for the Mr. JT song! I kid, I'm a kidder. The dancing was AMAZING yet I disagree that Travis was the standout, I thought Heidi stood out the most, but maybe it was those fur boots. Wade Robson is still my boo and I have NO idea who is going to win. I can say I do NOT think it will be Donyelle. Sorry, girl.
