Music: “Dholna” from Pyar Ke Geet (Soundtrack)

Choreography: Tony Meredith
Music: “Kiss From a Rose” by Seal
Thoughts: I absolutely loved it and with that song (which is one of my favorite songs of all time) it was perfect. Those lifts were so beautiful. The judges didn’t seem to agree with me completely but since I don’t know much about the technical stuff, I’ll just say that I enjoyed it, a lot.

Choreography: Tony Meredith
Music: “Dies Irae” by Karl Jenkins
Thoughts: It was not that great for me. They just didn’t hit it as hard as I would have liked them to. And also I didn’t like Randi’s wig at all, I was always thinking she was going to lose it. Pretty disappointing.

Music: “Aquarius” from Hair (The New Broadway cast)
Thoughts: I love that song, so that’s a good start and then you add Tyce Diorio’s choregraphy on top of that and you get their brilliant performance. I absolutely loved it. My favorite of the night.
