Karen and Kevin hussled their way to royalty. Mary dubbed Karen the “Hussle Queen” and kept both of them on the Hot Tamale Train.
Ashleigh and Jakob performed an elegant and fiery Jazz routine. Overflowing with compliments, Mary called them the perfect partnership.
Peter and Pauline acted as an army man who falls for a hula girl while performing the “Dreaded Quick Step.” While their performance was entertaining, ballroom-expert Mary Murphy said their technical dancing wasn’t up to snuff.
Kathryn and Legacy performed a Broadway battle. Legacy exceeded the judges’ expectations yet again, proving that a b-boy can do more than head spins. Meanwhile, Kathryn’s dancing, while good, was a little too childlike for the character.
Channing and Victor struggled with a toxic relationship in their Contemporary routine. After losing their partners last week, this new couple impressed the judges with their immediate chemistry and contemporary skills.
Ellenore and Ryan had to develop some swagger for their Hip-Hop routine. Considering Ryan is a buff ballroom dancer, this style was drastically different from his own. But he and Ellenore performed okay considering.
Mollee and Nathan performed an uncomfortable Salsa. The judges said it, not me: they weren’t sexy or suave. Instead they looked awkward, unsure and unsynchronized. This is the first week this dream team hasn’t shined.
Noelle and Russell played an African princess and a frog in their Afro-Jazz number. The judges loved the curious blend of techniques and how well they portrayed their characters.
So who stays and who goes? The fate of the dancers was left in America’s hands for the first time this week. They sent Karen and Kevin, Pauline and Peter, and Ellenore and Ryan into the bottom three. After dancing for their lives, Pauline and Peter said goodbye to the So You Think You Can Dance stage.
