Moving forward by moving backwards.
DRAMATIC (in own voice)
He dances to Everybody by Backstreet Boys and begins by stripping down into beach gear and playing with a beach ball with his backup dancers. The routine is cute and fun, but my concern is that he will end up falling into the first performance curse if the other dancers do well.
The judges agree he has a youthful, entertaining vibe that also has a boy band vibe.
11 on cereal.
Acrobatics in yearbook.
All in this together.
TRIPLE (in own voice)
She dances to Fergalicious by Fergie. There were a lot of fun moves and lifts, as well as a ton of pep and spirit. Then she surprises us with some tapping and spins.
The judges loved the emotion, sass and clean footwork. They agree she is a trained dancer in control of her body.

Considers himself lovely.
Felt like he was being punked when it came to love.
Part of a power couple.
Accomplished (in own voice)
He is a cute, fun dancer with amazing backup dancers that manage to do well without being too distracting.
The judges love him and his spirit and how he committed to his character.

The judges say he has some swag and confidence, as well as some old school entertaining.
LL Cool J
