totes4totes Posted June 20, 2022 Author Share Posted June 20, 2022 Lord Finn/Virginia - Hip-Hop (Luther Brown) - The kind of fun thing while watching a Luther brown routine when you have one partner that is so obviously better than the other is that you get to see what Luther Brown envisioned when he choreographed the routine. Lord Finn is clearly in his element. Virginia isn't awful but she's not great. She's like that meme where it's like "what you ordered online" vs "when it arrives at your house" or rather when that white dancer went on that late night show to demonstrate viral TikTok dances and then you watched the black women who choreographed them. She's post-dance cult KO. Anyway, I'd like to see more of him. I could take or leave her. I know they like arbitrarily choose the dancers who are leaving to pit against the dancers who are staying at the Green Mile but I can guarantee I would have liked this routine more with Juicy solely because she has the confidence to go by JUICY. Waverly/Jordan - Contemporary (Mandy & Elizabeth) - I went to Jordan's instagram and she's followed by faves like Ariana Debose and Anneke Gheysens and Koko Iwasaki so I might stan her I've decided. Also she's 24 which makes her the oldest woman on the show so another reason. She follows Cincinnati hero Joe Burrow on IG (@elliott). She is also clearly a casual Bachelor fan so she's hashtag relatable to me. She also might be a bit basic so you know. Anyway, this was lovely but I don't know that I'll necessarily remember it after the season is over. They are two early favorites for sure and hopefully they get something a bit more standout. Anna/Beau - Jazz (Al Blackstone) - UGH THIS CLIP STARTED WITH JESSE TYLER FERGUSON. AN ENEMY. Anna looks like. An influencer. IDK somebody. A young Julianne Hough? You know what is disappointing? When you hear that a routine is going to be to "Dancing in the Dark" and it's Frank Sinatra and NOT Bruce Springsteen. This was fine and perfectly forgettable in the way that literally every single Al Blackstone and generally Broadway routine has been on this show. Essence/Thiago - Contemporary (Tessandra Chavez) - Did Tessandra decide she had to fill in the Mandy Moore contemporary slot this week? This contemporary actively makes Jordan/Waverly look better. Not that it's bad but more that it leaves absolutely ZERO impression. Ralyn/Carter - Jive (Alan Bersten) - Alan is such a smart choice for choreography (tbqh all the DWTS pros are) because he knows how to choreograph a routine that's going to look passably full of technique but make it so that it actively doesn't hurt a dancer who has never done a ballroom routine. In this I think Ralyn fell into the perfect situation because just as there were parts where I thought she was getting a bit lost in the actual jive it moved to another trick. Carter was good but Carter is maybe bland. Keaton/Alexis - Contemporary (Talia Favia) - I watched ALL of The Ultimatum and now when I see a white man in a cowboy hat I just get flashbacks to the emotionally stunted Colby. This man even looks like Colby with that hairstyle. I will hopefully never have to see a cowboy hat or hear that he's from a small town ever again once I figure out how to just watch the routines. Anyway, this was the clear standout of the night. Talia Favia rarely lets us down and this was no exception. Just lovely. Top 12 Hip-Hop (Luther Brown) - Incredible. Luther is so good at doing group routines. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
