- "Finally," host Cat Deeley tells us, we're down the final ten. Cat adds that now America's voting will be the only factor in who advances and who is cut.
Before we get going, Jessica comes out and informs Cat that she has broken a few of her ribs and is out of the competition. Left with an odd number of female dancers, the show has decided to bring back the recently booted Comfort for tonight's show.
Cat introduces us to tonight's judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Lil' C, adding again that the threesome no longer has to make any cuts, with only the public's vote deciding future eliminations. The couples have been changed at random, with the girls drawing a new guy from a hat. Also, since the public will be voting on its favorite individuals, everybody will be dancing a solo during the show.
Courtney & Joshua: Hip hop choreographer Dave Scott puts together a Bride of Frankenstein routine that had Joshua "excited" and Courtney happy she had Joshua as a partner. Lil' C thought Joshua "killed it" and seemed pleasantly surprised with Courtney. Mary thought Joshua stole the show, finding Courtney "just respectable."
Solo: Chelsie does a rather uneventful spinning routine to Rihanna's "Pon de Replay." (It doesn't look as if we'll be getting any judge feedback on the solos.)
Kherington & Mark: Drawing a country two-step, both seem overwhelmed during rehearsal by the number of steps thrown at them by dance champions Ronnie DeBenedetta and Brandi Tobias. An underwhelmed Lil' C thought it was a "fun routine," Mary basically said the dance was too tough for the dancers and Nigel thought they were both "out of sorts."
Solo: Gev gets his breakdance on to Lupe Fiasco. Foot-holding and one-armed handstands follow.
Comfort & Twitch: The first task for the phoenix-like Comfort is a Hunter Johnson-designed smooth waltz. Lil' C wasn't blown away, calling it "respectable," while Mary apologized before saying "it lacked power" and was "choppy." Nigel didn't think the performance was strong enough for the Top 10.
Solo: Courtney is out on stage next, jumping and spinning around on the floor to "I Want You To Need Me" by Celine Dion.
Katee & Will: The pair draws a Broadway number choreographed by Tyce Diorio which has the pair dancing around and in a prop boat. "Explosive" was how Lil' C found it, adding that they (sigh) "rocked his boat." After breaking my television with a giddy scream, Mary said she loved them both. Nigel said "it was terrific" and called them the most technical dancers left on the show.
Solo: Mark dances incredibly oddly to "Bohemian Rhapsody" from Queen.
Chelsie & Gev: Sonya Tayeh puts together a contemporary routine that had Gev "definitely nervous" in rehearsal, but feeling more prepared. Lil' C thought the pair committed (good thing), Mary "believed it" and Nigel got what he hoped for.
Solo: Comfort's second consecutive last week (did I say that?) is half over with some hip hop moves to "Need A Boss" by Shareefa.
Solo: Twitch explores the stage rather impressively to Wade Robson's "I Question Mark."
Courtney & Joshua: Courtney said the pair "was in shock" when they first saw the sexual rumba Jean-Marc Genereux had choreographed for them. Lil' C "might need his asthma pump" he was so excited, Mary thought they did a "fantastic" job with a genre even professionals struggle with and Nigel trailed off after raving about Joshua.
Solo: Katee's spinning and prancing to Maxwell's "This Woman's Work" seems to be relatively well-received by the studio audience.
Kherington & Mark: Tyce Diorio says the jazz routine he choreographed is designed to showcasing style and technique. The pair's routine (with Jamiroquai's "Canned Heat," music from 'the' Napoleon Dynamite scene) was "good" for Lil' C and didn't make Mary feel anything. Nigel thought it was like a driving test in that it checked off the elements but was devoid of heart or passion.
Solo: Will is dancing to Luther Vandross, starting on his knees off stage before a balletish few seconds across and around the theater.
Comfort & Twitch: Dave Scott is back with a futuristic hip hop routine. Twitch thinks that the match-up will be "tremendous," given that they each love to play to the crowd. Both dancers are excited given their familiarity with the style. It was "kind of buck" for Lil' C, comparing Twitch to Scott himself and thinking Comfort was the best she's ever been. Mary loved both, going as far as bowing to Twitch, and Nigel found it "brilliant."
Solo: Another uneventful solo with Kherington moving and grooving to Rihanna's "Breakin' Dishes."
Katee & Will: Desmond Richardson and Dwight Rhoden choreographed a pas de deux (thanks Google) ballet for the pair, a routine that challenges the elasticity of Katee's legs. Will said in rehearsal that the dance should come with a warning. The couple's performance (danced to the cavity-inducing David Archuleta) was full of "conviction and fervor" for Lil' C. A visibly emotional Mary thought Katee was "flawless." Nigel spends a ton of time complimenting the choreographers, eventually saying the pair was just shy of perfect.
Solo:Michael Jackson's "Jam" is Joshua's choice, and a few jaw-dropping hip hop moves make it easily the most visually impressive of the solos.
Chelsie & Gev: Our last routine is a jive routine choreographed by Jean-Marc Genereux. Gev is "excited" and Chelsie goes on a limb to say they will make it the "best jive routine so far . . . hopefully." Lil' C said Chelsie was the better of the two and Mary thought they did a terrific job, agreeing that Chelsie stole the show. Nigel emphasized that Chelsie "was outstanding" and that Gev was somewhat inconsistent.
