So we're down to the top 6: Pasha & Lacey: Hip Hop (heh, ok 'basically she's a mannequin' - that's what I've been thinking! ) So, we have Pasha dancing & Lacey posing for 1/2 the song. He definitely outclassed her for this number. But she looked beter dressed than half-dressed. Smooth Waltz Ok so we gave Lacey a challenge with Hip-Hop, and now we're doing a ballroom style, which they thought would be with her training - except she's never done ballroom. I see the chroeographer put some latin flair into it, I saw very little of the rise & fall there should've been (only a few of what I could consider "standard" waltz moves) and that lift over his back looked awkward. I still think the judges are going easy on her. Pasha was gorgeous. Danny & Lauren: Contemporary Seemed like a lot of running and not as much dancing. Again with the contemporary. The lines are gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous, though. And I can appreciate the technique and work that went into it, even if I don't necessarily "get" it. I did really enjoy the run across the stage and collapse, and you can tell how much strength that took. I think Lauren REALLY shone, here. Disco Ok but not spectacular. They spent the whole time talking about the 'death drop' and going from one spin into another - and then they did it differently in the performance. Danny looked awkward on the lifts again, but at least he looked a little more like he was THERE with her. Not as strong as I would've liked. Neil & Sabra Jazz wow. I still don't see the "jazz" part of it, but it was great. I really feel like the choreographers are challenging the dancers, and the dancers are certainly rising to the occasion. I just love watching her, she's just incredible. Paso Doble This is the routine I was waiting for. Please, Goddess, Tony give us a song that BELONGS with a Paso Doble!! (And there was are.) I would've liked to have seen her dance this wthe Pasha, though. She WAS doing the Lacey thing where she was making her faces, but wow. The lift at the end, with her grabbing her heels. The drop down his body. BEAUTIFUL. THAT was a performance. THIS was the performance of the night. (and the joke about being dropped by Dominic was funny as heck. ) Neil impressed the heck out of me, he just played his role perfectly. Solos: Sabra - I always forget how tiny she is, she just dances so big, and she has an amazing stage presence. She uses every inch of the floor. She just impresses me. Pasha Um, completely let down on his. Wow. Really not what I think he should've been able to accomplish - he wasn't putting everything into it. Lauren I enjoyed her solo tonight, she does look SO much better this week than she has the entire series, IMO. Neil Still a lot of acrobatics, but he chose music & movement that worked for me, so I liked it. LaceyShe's got one style. Try to be sexy. She's a one-trick pony. Unfortunately, it's a trick that many of the voters will probably buy. Danny Danny is just beautiful, and I really think he's come into his own. Smiling at the camera during his solo - the changeup in his movement (not all classical), I'm still on the Danny bandwagon. At the end of the day, I'm not sure who's leaving this week. I still believe that Sabra should walk away with the whole thing, I think she is the most well-rounded, talented, and versitile person on the show. Last week, I would've said this was it for Neil & Lauren...but I dunno, now. I still think Lauren's questionable, but Pasha might be on the rocks as well. As far as the guys? I don't know if this week was enough to save Neil, but I think all Pasha & Danny had problems this week. This is going to be an interesting wait.
