Ariana and Jim- Contemporary with Sean Cheeseman- Everybody Wants To Rule The World – Ariana also wanted to be a makeup artist. Jim loves bubble baths. He calls it “Jim Time”. Jim is struggling with his depression (Ariana) in this dance. Twitch thinks this is the routine for Ariana to finally break through. There are these two round table looking things on stage for the dance. This cover is amazing, first of all. Haunting. Jim’s got the emotion down, and Ariana has this very dangerous look about her in the dance. I think this is my favorite dance of the night. It’s a nice rebound for Jim from last week. Now he’s standing. That wilting pirouette he did was beautiful. Ending up on that table… gorgeous. Standing O from the judges. For those of you hating this years routines, if you hate this… you just don’t have a soul. Nigel thought they both conveyed the message, and calls dance a great weapon against depression. Nigel thinks Ariana is brilliant every week and doesn’t know why she’s not connecting with the audience. Nigel says Jim is not struggling on this show, and says he’s brilliant. Paula says it worked beautifully and seamlessly, and thought Ariana kept up with Jim. Jason says he’s blown away by Ariana. He says he can’t tell what team she’s on, and Paula says “Team Talent”. Jason says he’s never seen technique like Jim’s live. Nigel gives a shoutout to the Lighting Director (Bob) for that routine. RESULTS! Jim is safe. Ariana is in danger again. Damn.
