1) Jaja and Hailee- Jazz with Ray Leeper- Endangered Species by Dianne Reeves – Jaja is engaged. Her fiance is a dancer. Hailee is not a natural blonde. Duh. Honey, no one thought that was natural. They’re doing a female empowerment piece. Team Hail-Ja! What a way to show off Jaja’s technical shortcomings. Put her against Hailee. Hailee is slaying this. Jaja’s extensions don’t match hers. She’s trying. For a street dancer who wasn’t good enough for last year, I’m still impressed, but its hard to be too impressed when Hailee is slaying this so hard. I could have used more interaction between the two. There was virtually no interaction between them. Nigel calls Hailee a sensation, and says Jaja is one of the most interesting street dancers ever on the program, and she’s improving so much each week. He thought the choreo was perfect. Paula thought Jaja, from where she got cut last year to now, that her journey is remarkable. Paula says we are lasered into Hailee. Jason thought it was a great opening. He’s proud of Jaja. He tells her to be careful of her leg extension. (WOW! Jason was the only one to critique Jaja. Mad props.) He says Hailee is becoming a star. RESULTS! Both dancers are safe.
