Karen Hauer is eliminated – VIDEO
Victor Smalley is eliminated
Eh, I think I would have rather Nathan had been eliminated, like Nigel said he wanted. But then, I think Nigel’s very dramatic declaration that he was outvoted by his fellow judges was all about the TV drama.
Still, Victor danced for his mother f*cking life (his solo totally pwnd Nathan’s) and it’s too bad it wasn’t enough to save him from elimination. The good news is that the entire Top 12 usually go on tour, so all is not lost.
Videos and recap, after the JUMP…

Guys: Decision was NOT unanimous. Nigel namechecks Kelly Osbourne from DWTS as a person who has grew in competition. Nigel loved Victor’s solo. Nigel says Ryan’s solos have not been impressive. Nigel says Nathan hasn’t grown yet. Nigel wanted to cut him. But, Victor is leaving instead.
