Here's the video of Robert and Allison's Contemporary: Billy Bell with Anya Garnis Choreographed by: Louis van Amstel Style: Jive Song: "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" - Meatloaf Grade - Dance: A-Grade - Contestant: B It kinda reminded me of Benji Schwimmer meets Danny Zuko. I thought Billy did a pretty great job actually until I kept looking over to the superb Anya and then Billy looked off beat sometimes. Still, putting these two blondes with big personalities together is just a dream come true. I avoided saying it was a home run or that they hit it out of the park! Loved the pairing and I thought Billy and Lauren were really cute together. Mia thought he needed a bit more training and fine tuning generally but loved it. Granted, they still need to work on their lifts together, but considering what a last minute replacement this was, I can understand. At this point, I just think it's obvious that Adéchiké and Jose just aren't close to the level of the others, but that could be dangerous that it's so obvious as their fans will know they need to vote for them like crazy to save them. )Here's the video of Kent and Neil's Broadway: Lauren Froderman and Billy Bell Choreographed by: Mandy Moore Style: Jazz Song: "Bookie Shoes" - KC & The Sunshine Grade - Dance: AGrade - Lauren: AGrade - Billy: A-Adorable shoe routine! Lauren was just hitting it and Billy nicely followed suit. Um, I wasn't drinking the same juice cause I thought Dominic totally outperformed Jose here. As for the rest, I thought Robert and Kathryn were F#$KEN GLITTER BALL DAZZLING and just so sharp and snazzy and I thought it was really fun. So Billy and Robert are in danger because they aren't cute and blonde like Kent and Lauren who should remain safe. The costumes look fun though and Lauren looked good, though in my unprofessional eyes, it didn't look that hard to do either. Here's the video of Lauren and Mark's Tahitian: Adéchiké Torbert with Anya Garnis Choreographed by: Liz Lira and Danny Davalos Style: Salsa Song: "Oyelo Que Te Conviene" - Eddie Palmieri Grade - Dance: B Grade - Contestant: C It might have been the hardest Salsa ever on this show by new choreographers to the show, but I thought Anya held up most of the strength to get through the numerous tricks.There were moments where she literally looked like she was bending over backwards to make it work, while Adéchiké looked like he was struggling at parts.At this point, the winner of Season 7 is going to be literally the last one standing. So while it's the Top 7, it's really just 6 this week.
But damn, doesn't Courtney look hot in that outfit? Los Angeles - It's Time To Put On Those Dancing Shoes Again Kids!Ryan, Victor, and Andrew couldn’t make it, so it was just the six of you.You weren’t sure why you’d been invited, but you didn’t complain.Yes I'm a nerd.)Lauren Froderman with Mark Kanemura Choreographed by: Tiana Liufau Style: Tahitian Song: "Jungle" - Last Voices Grade - Dance: B Grade - Contestant: B Like Bollywood, it's hard to judge these kind of fun looking dances since we have no idea about the intricacies and subtleties in the techniques.
So other than wiggling your butt enough, I'm not sure how else how to judge Lauren, but I could tell that Mark just looked so strong with those wiggly moves.
But if I didn't look at Anya, I thought he did a great job on the difficult jive and I thought he was great with Anya which the judges also kept pointing out. They had some technical quibbles but Nigel thought it was Billy's best work outside his genre.
