The opening number
Last night Leah Miller was raving about the opening number tonight and I have to say, it was good, but she really over-sold it. There was tango, there was ribbon acrobatics in the air, it was very cool, but not jaw-dropping.
CTV describes it:
The choreographer of “Jersey Boys” and “Memphis,” Sergio Trujillo, created this incredibly dramatic Argentinean tango number that saw the dancers suspended and spinning from the red fabric.
For the music lovers it was from the Moulin Rouge Soundtrack:El Tango de Roxanne by Ewan McGregor , Jose Feliciano and Jacek Koman
Geisha & Adam - no safe
Jordan & - safe
Shelaina & JP - safe
Francois & Yulia- not safe
Melissa & Joey - safe
Shane & Lindsey - safe
Denitsa & Matt - safe
Carlena & Kevin - safe
Teya & Boneless - not safe
I have to say, I was really unsure about my power rankings last night, but seems I was right on target - yay me!
Geisha - Unknown song
She did well, nothing mind-blowing, in fact, I felt it was pretty average and she may be the one to go!
Yulia - Tuttie Frutti - Little Richard
She did well. She always does in her style, but I feel like doing well in your genre will only take you so far. After Leah said she looked nice and she said, "I made it" (referring to her dress) I don't know Yulia just rubs me the wrong way.
Teya - Party ROck Anthem - LMFAO
I actually liked her solo, it was old-school hip-hop, very cute, but not very complex. Super fun though!
Adam - Dancing Machine - Jackson 5 (I think, based on lyric search)
Lot's of rolls and flips. Overall entertaining.
Francois - Uknown Song
Like Yulia, he is very good in his style, but comes across a bit cocky in coversation and attitude.
Boneless - Teach me how to Dougie - Cali Swag District
Like Teya, very entertaining. He did popping and some fun moves.
In the end
Teya and Boneless went home. Judges said it was unanimous for Teya but not for Boneless. Carlena lost it, like shaking violently as she cried, when they announced Teya. Leah Miller said he whiney sympathetic goodbye.
