We love to blow our own horn. Of course we do. Who doesn’t? But we were off just a bit. The audience put Melissa and Ade in the bottom 3 and both of them did solos that left little down the vote was wrong. They don’t have the sex appeal of the other dancers, but they have a strength that will not be easily eliminated. SAFE.
Our other favorite from last night, in fact our absolute favorite by far… Jeannette and Brandon – were obviously proclaimed safe.
Kayla & Kupono were the top of our bottom four. We were not overly enthused by Kupono last night, but Kayla was awesome. So what do you do? The audience decided to keep them…SAFE.
Randi and Evan were not up to snuff last night, especially Evan. But they have that American apple pie vote. And their victory kicked out Jeanine and Phillip, another pair in our bottom four.
Jeanine and Phillip were interesting last night in their performances. Jeanine was spectacular and it would be good to see her dance with real broad-based male talent. Phillip was fun, but is not diverse in any way. We wanted him gone weeks prior. They could not eliminate one of the best dancers on the floor just to to keep Phillip. So they didn’t. Phillip got the boot, but will be on the tour anyway.
Caitlin and Jason were great but boring. Their dances just weren’t memorable. They did not grab us and make us want tot grab that phone. America agreed. Bottom three and our bottom of the bottom.
Jason shook off the disaster of being in the bottom three again, with a powerful, even if seemingly desperate, solo. And Phillip could not compete with the flex dance.
Caitlin was clearly in danger after the solos. It wasn’t because her solo was not on par with any of the great solos this year. It was because they remember her boring performances from last night, and because neither of the women competing against her were not within a hair of her performance, give or take. It was a dead heat, so last night’s dances came into play and the judges already had made up their mind based on that. We had as well. Goodbye, Caitlin. BUT NO!! Caitlin gets to go on the show!!!! They want BOLLYWOOD!!!
