Marissa and Yorelis – Hip Hop by Christopher Scott- Let Go- Kezwik feat Mimi Page – Marissa used to be a power tumbler. She was training for the junior olympics when she was little. Yorelis is a go-go dancer. Yorelis is in her style. Yorelis is hypnotizing Marissa. Marissa’s tricks look great in hip hop. Don’t forget that Yorelis is new to Hip Hop. She’s come a long way, but these two look pretty evenly matched. Yorelis handles the flow a bit better than Marissa, but Marissa can do some pretty great tricks too. I’d say they’re evenly matched. Not the best routine of the night, but a good one. Nigel thought Marissa’s tumbling skills really worked into the routine, and thought she needed the liquid flow. Nigel calls Yorelis beautiful and sensational, like she hasn’t been choreographed. He thought it was excellent. Paula compliments them both, and thought the choreography was smart. Jason thought it was a good performance, but says it falls a little short. He wanted it bigger and more intense. Why is Jason the best judge tonight? He’s the only one not afraid to critique the contestants. RESULTS! Yorelis is safe. Marissa in the bottom three. That means Edson is safe!
