And Then There Were Eighteen Season 4, Episode 7

UmI know it's necessary to have a musical interlude so the judges can deliberate. Is it bad to admit that I fast-forwarded though the Pussycat Dolls' performance? Now don't get me wrong, I own quite a few of their songs (I heart iTunes). But I was much more interested in seeing who's staying and who's going to be sent packing. So, let's get down to it. Wade Robson choreographed the strange and wonderful opening number. In general I'm a fan. I don't always love what he does but I thought tonight's group number was very strong and it was danced well. I could have done without Nigel's (over)acting but I'm sure he was delighted to be incorporated, especially since his dancing days are done. Here are the results of our votes: Kherington & Twitch safe Chelsea & Thayne safe Chelsie & Mark safe Matt & Kourtni dancing for their lives Susie & Marquis safe Comfort & Chris safe Jamie & Rayven dancing for their lives Katee & Joshua safe Jessica & Will dancing for their lives Courtney & Gev safe I am shocked that Jessica and Will are in the bottom three. I did think Jessica was a bit weak, but overall I thought they presented a very strong Tango last night. I'm glad Dan lets the dancers and the audience know that they didn't deserve to be there. But before they dance for their lives, it looks like the show is doing something new this year that I'm very excited about. Every Thursday they will feature a performer from the world of dance. This week we meet popping sensations Poppin' Pete and Shownee. They are amazing. I don't know how they can move their bodies like that. When Cat asks about the origins of that style of dance, we learn it originated in 1975 and it's antecedents are the Jerk and the Twist. I love learning about dance so I hope every week's showcase is this cool. But I must admit one thing. I tried for a good five, if not ten, minutes to figure out how to turn my closed captioning on. I finally gave up thinking I'd just Google the dancers to make sure I spelled their names right (Google failed me; couldn't find them!). So if any of you want to take pity on me and tell me how to work my DirecTV remote correctly, I'd be appreciative. Where was I? Solos: Kourtni we can see that she's a little nervous while dancing. Although I think she's great she does have a major bobble. Matt his lines are just amazing but I still feel like we aren't getting personality from him. Rayven I enjoyed her piece. She made ballet seem rockin'. Jamie really went for it. He used the stage well and showed us great personality. Jessica I didn't love her piece but I like her. She seemed unfocused and didn't showcase her ability. Will I thought it was really good. He picked his piece of music well and put a very nice piece together. What did the judges think? Nigel, talking for the group, declared the judges unanimous on their choice for the ladies. Nigel wants to see Kourtni bring to her routines what she brings to her solos. Nigel thinks she's magical. She's safe. Nigel thought both Rayven and Jessica's solos weren't good enough. He didn't understand why Rayven danced on demi-point instead of point and Jessica's performance just wasn't strong enough. They keep Jessica and send Rayven, our oldest competitor, home. And can I just rave about her for a moment? She has a great attitude. She's just so grateful for the chance she was given and if this competition is what it took for her to keep dancing, I think it was all worth it for her. And now the men. Again, the judges were unanimous. Nigel is very disappointed to see Will in the bottom three but he's delighted to see him perform. Nigel cautions Will to slow down and let people see his brilliance. He's safe. The judges had problems with both Jamie and Matt's performances. Jamie has personality in spades but struggles on technique and Matt's technique is flawless but we have yet to see his personality. This week technique wins over personality and Jamie is sent home. He also has a really great attitude. He's very gracious and very emotional. He praises the other dancers and is glad to have come this far. So, I'm not too upset about the two dancers sent packing tonight. Their hip-hop routine yesterday just didn't do it for me. I'm always sad to see good dancers leave the competition but based on what we saw today and yesterday, I think the judges made the right choice. Please do share your thoughts below and let me thank you now for all your great comments so far. show less
