I'm thrilled he's safe. Per spicegurrl
's post, I wonder if there's any chance that the top two were Robert and Kent?
IMO Adéchiké is just as talented a dancer as Kent (and needs, like Kent and Robert, some intense time at the barre for his arms/hands), obviously not as outgoing a personality as Kent (but who is), hard to compare with Robert (not as good a center but better ballon, not quite as fluid, but better musicality and solos and athletic control), a better lifter than Robert or Kent (I'd pick Adéchiké if I had to do lifts with him every time
, hands down, which is something Toni Redpath should have mentioned) and . . . he's probably going to continue to get slaughtered by Mia, subtly. I think her toxicity about him has affected the other judges. They're all so uneven with their praise and critiques it's silly.
He needs his chance at standout choreo. He rocked with Comfort because they both danced the hell out of what they were given and both brought pathos.
And no more Courtney. She seems to be having a harder time than Kathryn or Allison or Anya connecting.
Once again, I caught Adéchiké taking a moment to murmur encouragement to Billy, even grasped the back of Billy's head like before. Sweet, too, was Billy's reach to rub Adéchiké's shoulder in the middle of the package recaps. Adéchiké looked like he was going to hurl from nerves.
I think he's a sweet guy who has withstood a load of judges' uneven crap (and outright vitriol) with aplomb and grace. Maybe they'll just dispense with the final three silliness (what a weird number) and keep everyone next week.
Pretty please, can we see the two Adés dance?
