Of the last 3, I liked Sonya's piece best by far. Whacking ok, but limiting. Broadway, well done, but I didn't care for the piece.
I finally watched all the dances and thought Ricky and Sasha got hosed with the waacking routine. To try to understand what it was supposed to be, I watched some waacking videos and what really stood out to me was that much of the "wow" factor in the dance comes from the speed of the movements and the unusual positions the dancers form with their arms and upper body. But the dance Ricky and Sasha had was unable to really show that off for two reasons.

First, the music was really slow. To keep in time to the music, their movements could not be too fast.

Second, by making waacking a partner dance with two novices, the dancers were constrained. Most of the videos I've looked at of whacking seem to be solo dances or dance battles. That makes sense. It's a form of individual expression that allows the dancer to let loose in response to the music. Doing it as a partner dance necessarily means the dancers are limited by what the partner can do and by the need to stay in synch.

But Mark :cheer:

Mark Kanemura?! :cheer: I'd love to see him dance with both Melanie and Sasha. And I presume those two are going through if Nigel is willing to rely strictly on votes.

woot, yay Melanie! (not that I expected her to NOT be in the finale, but you never know with votes).

I'm disappointed Melanie didn't even have to sweat it out.

Cat just said Mark, but I assume so.

Mark, Joshua, Robert, and Lauren are the all stars.

I could definitely have done without Robert.

Wonder if they are omitting ballroom from the finale altogether?

Maybe they'll make them dance ballroom with each other?

Was it Lauren F?

Shut up Nigel. Was it really necessary to get one final zinger in on Caitlyn before sending her home?

Did I miss Pia performing? Ok not really missing her. I'm just surprised at how late it is getting.
