The Night of a Thousand Pimp(ings)  

It's dancing time!!! This is the highlight of my week...normally. This week is different because I'm going to Atlantic City this weekend so I have Friday AND Monday off from work! I hope I can snap out of this work funk I've been in and have a better attitude when I get back. Either that or win a million bucks. It think I'd prefer the million! Anyway, on with the show!

Cat's dress is a little frumpy at first glance. Or maybe it's just a little old. It looks like something my mom would have worn in the late 60's.

Adam Shankman is in the house!! He calls it like it is! Most likely, he'll do the choreography for the group number tomorrow. Look for lots of Jazz Hands.

Mary's outfit is more age appropriate tonight.


Pair: Kherington Payne & Twitch
Style: Hip Hop

Choreographer(s): "NAPPYTABS"
Song: Don't Touch Me (Throw Da Water on'Em)
by Busta Rhymes (no relation to LeAnn)
Background Nugget:
Twitch sounds like a bear when he laughs. Kherington has a huge shopping problem.
I think they did bring it down to Kherrington but not that much. I thought she did great and I found myself watching her more that Twitch. It was a great opening number and sets a pretty good tone for the rest of the night.
Note Worth Move:
Kherrington was on Twitch's shoulders.
Judges: Nigel loved it. Mary gives them the first Mary scream of the season. Adam calls it awesome and gives them some suggests for the future.

Pair: Courtney Galiano & Gev Manoukian
Style: Rumba

Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin
Song: Wishing On A Star
by Rose Royce
Background Nugget:
Courtney is studying Special Education. Gev looked like a little girl when he was younger.
Before the dancing starts, can I just say that I REALLY like them! Their video package was sooo funny! Back to dancing. That was HOT! The only way that could have been hotter would be to make them dance it naked. I do think that the beginning drop was a little shaky and almost put me off for the entire routine but they brought it back in the end. I'll be voting for them again. They give me that Dominique & Sabra vibe.
Note Worth Move: Gev did the splits at the end and they had some nice lifts
Judges: Nigel is very, very happy and thinks they make a fabulous couple. Dominique is in the house!! Nigel compares Gev to Dominique too. I love it when I'm on top of things! Mary thought it was great and beautiful. Adam thinks Mary looks like a pretty disco ball. He also really loved it. He give them pointers for the future while Nigel and Mary pretend to sleep.

Pair: Comfort Fedoke & Chris Jarosz
Style: Jazz

Tyce Diorio
Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson
Background Nugget:
Comfort was in a beauty pageant. Chris eats other peoples food.
I've decided that I do not like anything that Tyce does. It always has that over the top Broadway feel even when it's not. Chris just looked strange in that outfit and dancing it. Comfort looked good but I didn't believe Chris. Chris is a goof ball and needs to go home.
Note Worth Move: The stupid sheets should have stayed on the bed.

Judges: Nigel was disappointed with the power that came from the dancers. Mary feels the same and says it fell short. Adam wanted to feel the music through the dancers but didn't. Man! He can talk!
Number: 1-888-83676-03


Pair: Jessica King & William Wingfield
Disco (aka. The Kiss of Death)
Doriana Sanchez
Heaven Must Have Sent You by Bonnie Pointer
Background Nugget:
Jessica is nicknamed Ariel. William is an absolute gentleman.
Thoughts: Of course, I didn't like it. I don't think I will ever like anything they do. I don't know how I got here but here I am. I normally like Disco but this routine just made me really scared for Jessica. After the death drop and they missed a lift, things went down hill and I really thought he was going to bang her right on the ground during the spinning lift thingy.
Note Worth Move:
Missed lift and spinning thingy that I thought was going to kill Jessica.
Judges: Nigel thinks they carried off the mistakes. Guess what? Mary agrees and then proceeds to pimp them HARD. Adam continues with the pimping.
Number: 1-888-83676-04


Pair: Kourtni Lind & Matt Dorame
Style: Contemporary
Choreographer(s): Sonya Tayeh (new blood) with a HUGE mohawk!

Song: Wrestlers (Sticky Dirty Pop Mix) by Hot Chip
Background Nugget: Kourtni has a tattoo that says "...and so she would dance". Matt wears a ninja mask sometimes.
Thoughts: It was not the normal Contemporary but I loved it! It was quirky and strange and looked like a ton of fun. My husband thought it was entertaining. He says that one of them needed to set the other one on fire. My husband has the strangest sense of humor but I love it.
Note Worth Move: everything was different and interesting
Judges: Nigel calls it quirky too! Mary bought what they were selling! Adam calls Matt out on the ninja mask thing. Adam calls them extraordinary but hates the outfits.
Number: 1-888-83676-05


Pair: Chelsea Traille & Thayne Jasperson
Style: Quickstep
Choreographer(s): Heather Smith

Song: You Can't Hurry Love by Phil Collins
Background Nugget: Thane wants to be a fashion designer. Chelsea steals flowers. Thane is still funny!
Thoughts: I thought that Thane did really well and was very smooth but Chelsea was too bouncy.
Note Worth Move: Nothing that made me go "WOW"...again
Judges: Nigel says it was too bouncy and their smiles were pasted on. He tells them to get their solos ready. Mary thinks it was okay and they look beautiful. She also thinks that Thane was better then Chelsea. Adam thinks they are great dancers but they looked uncomfortable.
Number: 1-888-83676-06


Pair: Chelsie Hightower & Mark Kanemura
Hip Hop
Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis (English Idol)
Background Nugget:
Chelsie is a tom boy
. Mark has crooked pinkies.
That was THE BEST OF THE NIGHT! I have tears in my eyes. They are on the top of my list again. It was emotional and moving. I now like Leona Lewis! Damn you So You Think You Can Dance!!!
Note Worth Move:
Mark slides his head down her arm and into her neck along with everything else.
Judges: Nigel thought they were excellent and believed them. Brilliant! Mary loved it and believed it as well. Adam stands up and screams! He calls it awesome and says they had the dance in their eyes. He calls them the couple to beat and I agree.
Number: 1-888-83676-07


Pair: Katee Shean & Joshua Allen
Style: Samba

Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin
Bella, Bella by Angola Via
Background Nugget:
Katee screams like a boy. Joshua is a big teddy bear.
That was pretty good but not as sexy as Courtney and Gev. I also think that the producers want a black guy to win. The major pimping of Will and now Joshua was unbearable. Joshua was really good but not as good as the judges made him out to be.
Note Worth Move: Tons of bootie shaking.
Judges: Nigel loved it and thought it was one of the outstanding performances. Mary calls it hot and gives them two first class tickets on the hot tamale train. Adam continues with the major pimping.
Number: 1-888-83676-08


Quite the good show this week despite the major pimping of Will and Joshua.

Chelsie Hightower & Mark Kanemura

Really Good:
Courtney Galiano & Gev Manoukian
Kourtni Lind & Matt Dorame

Kherington Payne & Twitch


Katee and Joshua (I dropped them down a notch just because of the pimping)
Jessica King & William Wingfield

Not so good:
Chelsea Traille & Thayne Jasperson
Comfort Fedoke & Chris Jarosz

I think it will be Chris and either Chelsea T. or Comfort going home tomorrow.

Who are your picks?

I really liked Chelsie and Mark. I just noticed this week that Mark is kind of a cutie.
