#1 – Two Step

Choreography: Ronnie DeBenedetta and Brandi Tobias
Music: “Kick Back” by Ty England
Thoughts: That was pretty bad, I was falling asleep. They had no energy and it felt really amateurish. Not a great start for this couple.

#2 – Jazz

Choreography: Tyce DiOrio
Music: “Canned Heat” by Jamiroquai
Thoughts: I don’t know what is up with this couple, but I totally agree with the judges, there was just nothing there. I didn’t really enjoy it and I didn’t feel there was any passion coming from either of them.

#2 – Jive

Choreography: Jean-Marc Genereux
Music: “The House Is Rockin'” by Brian Setzer
Thoughts: First of all did you guys see Jean-Marc Genereux and France dancing in the video? OMG how amazing are they? Well that puts everything in perspective for me. I mean Gev and Chelsie did not hit it as hard as Jean-Marc and France did. That said, I thought Chelsie totally outdanced Gev, she was really good. I’m not sure about Gev, but the performance was pretty entertaining.
Rating: 3/3

SOLOS

Chelsie Hightower

Music: “Pon de Replay” by Rihanna
Thoughts: It’s hard to judge her solo, because the genre just doesn’t look that exciting when dancing by yourself.

Thoughts: I think Gev is really good at dancing solos and this was another good one.
