Well, I was way off last week. 4 people were sent home, none of them being those that I predicted. The bottom three couples were Ryan and Ricky, Iveta and Nick (Iveta of World Championship ballroom status), and Missy and Wadi. Somehow, Nigel and Co. found it fit to keep Ryan and Ricky! The worst.
Right off the bat, we get to meet our judges who include the annoying Lil C who wastes no time in talking about his “buckness”. Dumb. They also include the FABULOUS and tiny Kristin Chenoweth. Olive Snook (and Glinda), for the eternal win.
Sasha and Alexander: These two have a contemporary routine by Dee Caspary. They are dancing a very emotional piece. I think it shows off both of their strength as dancers. It gets a bit weird at the end when Sasha crawls into the prop piano and then sort of plays from within it. It is odd. Overall, the dance was strong. Nigel has no criticism for Sasha, but tells Alexander that he needs to connect with his audience a little more (a la Chenoweth). Chenoweth herself tells a humorous story about her experience as a dancing tulip when a frog (dancer) peed on her.
