Episode 20 Recap: Oldies But Goodies Season 3, Episode 20

We are in the homestretch - the final show is a week from tomorrow. Tonight's judges were Debbie Allen, Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe. Each dancer danced two different routines in two different styles with the same partner, plus a solo. Pasha and Lacey The first routine was hip-hop and was choreographed by Dave Scott to "In the Morning" by Junior Boys. When they were describing the number, the first thought that popped into my mind was Mannequin, a movie from 1987. This was a fantastic way to open the show, and the best number of the night as far as I am concerned. Did you see how Pasha looked like a geek? The second routine was a smooth waltz choreographed by Hunter Johnson to "A Daisy in December" by Mick McAuley and Winfred Horan. This looked like a very classic dance, in very classic outfits (black and white). It reminded me of something I've seen in the movies. Danny and Lauren The first routine was in the contemporary style and was choreographed by Mia Michaels to "Then You Look at Me" by Celine Dion. I really don't understand why the judges loved this routine. To me it seemed like all they were doing was fighting and running around the stage. And to top it off, it ended with a very cliché ending, a scene from Titanic. Their second routine was a disco and was choreographed by Doriana Sanchez to "Don't Leave Me This Way" by The Communards. While it was not the original by Thelma Houston, it was still a real disco song. This is probably the best performance we have seen all season from Danny and Lauren. Neil and Sabra Their first routine, a jazz piece, was choreographed by Mandy Moore to "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" by The Eurythmics. I am pretty speechless about this one: All I can say is wow. I actually got the impression that Neil and Sabra were investment bankers on Wall Street. Their paso doble was choreographed by Tony Meredith to "Espana Cani" by Juan & Gennaro. Are these the same two people that everyone thought would never make it into the top 20, let alone the top 10? Maybe they are androids? The Solos None of the solos actually drew me in, except for Pasha's. Dancing with a mannequin was a great idea. It gave me the impression that he was not actually dancing alone. It's been ages since I heard Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart." My favorite numbers tonight were Pasha and Lacey's hip-hop routine, Neil and Sabra's jazz piece, and Danny and Lauren's disco performance. I think both Lauren and Danny will be leaving this week, which would leave the final four as Pasha, Neil, Lacey and Sabra. I think the winner will be either Pasha or Sabra. I am also wondering if they will be taping the results show tomorrow night for broadcast on Monday. There is no episode tomorrow night; Fox is showing a preseason football game. We'll have three chances to watch next week: Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. So guys and gals, what did you all think?
