More Spoilers after the JUMP…


  • Everything basically got good reviews except for Mark and Comfort’s Foxtrot
  • The judges liked Mark’s Hip hop (with Comfort). They didn’t expect to
  • Will wore a wig in his solo
  • Twitch and Katee’s contemporary used a door as a prop
  • Courtney’s Solo – Song: “Where I Stood” by Missy Higgins
  • Mark’s Solo – Song: by M.I.A.
  • Chelsie’s Solo: Song: “Damaged” by Danity Kane
  • In Will and Courtney’s Hip Hop, Will is a ghost
  • The judges told Chelsie and Joshua that their tango was much better than the other one (the one she did with Mark) because she and Joshua had so much chemistry.

These bits are from Idol Forums:

  • Mark and Comfort’s hip hop was about what kids do in detention when the teacher is away. There were some desks on the stage.
  • Courtney and Will’s slow hip hop was about seeing a lover who has passed on, and Will played a ghost. Courtney had some weird thing in her hair, and the judges commented that she looked kind of like a 1920s flapper.
  • Twitch and Katee’s Contemp was about a tumultuous relationship where Katee is kind of abusive to Twitch.
  • Twitch and Katee’s Broadway was about “Sweet Georgia Brown” trying to seduce some guy that has no interest in her.
  • Joshua and Chelsie’s disco had a lot of crazy lifts. Joshua is insanely strong.
  • Dmitry said that Joshua and Chelsie’s tango was supposed to be set when Tango was on the outskirts of society and was only performed in underground clubs. Nigel said it didn’t feel like they got that feeling into it.
  • I don’t remember what the story behind the Markfort foxtrot. Mary said that they had the worst closed hold in the history of the show. They were all pretty mean about it, but that’s the only specific critique I remember.
  • Mary said that Courtney was smoking in the samba, and Will was pretty good but got stiff sometimes.
