I know that some might find it upsetting that Donald got some 9's for his Jive, but I really agree with a theory that someone posted in another thread. I think that he's running away with the votes, so the judges know that he'll be alright if they don't score him super high.
Anyway, I think they all looked fab during the Jive. Just physically, it was a great presentation.
Surprised that Derek had soooo little Samba in that Bollywood routine. I'd think he'd be smart enough to at least do half and half. Maria did quite well with the Bollywood. Had good hips, and I thought that they probably had the most together choreography of all of the trios, but it just was not a Samba at all.
William's posture was not good during the Paso, but the routine was fun anyway. Loved the double knee slide thingie.
I disagreed about Melissa's Foxtrot being her best dance (up until that point). Her Waltz was much better. She was fine in the parts apart, but in hold, she had that "holding on for dear life" thing going on then, more than ever. Plus, she was way stumbly. I wish they got into specifics instead of just saying "mistakes", because you know how that can be taken by some...
However, I do agree that her Samba was her best dance. I totally agreed with CAI that she danced like she didn't have any worries anymore. Plus, she looked great in that black dress.
I think that she really might stick around, yet again.
It's very possible that the two I find most impressive, Roshon and Katherine, will go home. I hope not.
I take back all of the shit I talked about Chelsie picking a Troupe member. That worked beautifully, and I do think that they were a good match physically, and it seems that they're both very athletic, and that definitely helped in the routine.
That Foxtrot also really worked for them, moreso than any of those other "sticky and sweet, cute" type Foxtrots that we usually see. And the reason why is because they're both so young that it actually looks just RIGHT for them.
