    Jeanine and Philip - Russian

    OK - this is a trainwreck, but not in the way I imagined. Phillip was actually perfectly OK in this number (I was expecting the worst). Jeanine was lovely. But just the existence of the number itself is a huge miscalculation. As I feared, this was total Russian parish festival time.

    Randi and Evan - Hip Hop (Napoleon/Tabitha)

    Very nice NappyTabs soft hip-hop - but a little too soft for my taste. Some problems with the sync work and the lift at the end. As always their personality shines through the number. Their main problem may be the competition of the higher quality choreography on other numbers.

    I agree with Mary, I was fully expecting the hip hop routine with Evan & Randi to be a complete mess. However, it was very good, probably because it was not the hard hitting hip hop style.

    Well, it looks like the Cats have taken over SYTYCD FORT tonight, xmaskat! I wonder what everyone else on the east coast is watching?

    Janette and Brandon - Argentine Tango

    Hot tango! Janette great footwork and lifts. DItto for Brandon. Wonderful intenstiy. They both brought it to this routine. One of the best AT's I've seen on the show.

    Update: A standing ovation from Nigel!

    Woohoo! That tango was fantabulous!!

    The choreographers looked familiar, were they on the Superstars of Dance show?

    We're at the halfway point and everyone has done one routine. Let's review:
    • Melissa and Ade - Disco (Doriana Sanchez) Very Good
    • Kayla and Kupono - Contemporary (Mia) Outstanding!!
    • Caitlin and Jason - Foxtrot (Tony Meredith) Good
    • Jeanine and Philip - Russian Folk Dance Wish I Could Forget
    • Randi and Evan - Hip Hop (Napoleon/Tabitha) Very Good
    • Janette and Brandon - Argentine Tango Wonderful

    Melissa and Ade - Waltz (Ron Montez) to Natural Woman

    Very nice waltz. Not a lot of close hold and turns. We've gone back to the waltz/contemporary hybrid. But undeniably lovely and romantic. Some great turns by Ade - glad he has a chance to shine. Wonderful one handed lifts.

    Kayla and Kupono - Broadway (Joey Dowling) to Dance at the Gym (West Side Story)

    Well, at least this week Joey brought her own choreography. Nice use of the stage. Kayla's lines are, as always, amazing. I don't feel like they quite captured the characters - not as much as Evan and Randi did in their Hip-Hop. Well danced, but it didn't draw me in as much as it should have.

    Update: Judges have faint praise.

    Caitlin and Jason - Jazz (Mandy Moore) to Show Me Heaven by Maria Mckee

    At last! J&K dance their own style. Simple love story plot, but just a wonderful routine. Some beautiful and interesting lines and positions. I like this a lot. Here's my beef - if this had come for them early in the season I think they would have lots of fans. At this point it may be too late to get the fans on board. But they are the cutest couple together.

    Update: Good reviews, but Nigel and Mary question their "magic" and "chemistry".
