SYTYCD 12 Top 8 – Virgil Gadson & Jasmine – African Jazz – VIDEO
Virgil and Jasmine- African with Sean Cheeseman- Kintamani by Transglobal Underground – Virgil is worried about being able to lift Jasmine. LOL. Love the costumes. I wonder if we’ll ever get a dancer whose style is African in future seasons (if there are any). Virgil does well in this style. Honestly, I find Jasmine to be a little stiff in her movements, and disconnected a bit from Virgil. Virgil is trying to connect with her. It’s odd. I love Jasmine, but I think she held that dance back a bit. There was no connection between them, but Virgil really tried. Odd routine for me. I thought he did a great job, but the pairing didn’t work for me. Nigel apologizes for crediting Jasmine with something Sasha did. Nigel says Virgil hasn’t had a bad week (true). He says he punches above his weight. He calls Virgil an Ant-Man. Paula says he proved size doesn’t matter. He has unyielding confidence. Jason agrees that he hasn’t had a bad week. He thought he was on point stylistically. He says that his “sinister” comes off as comedic. RESULTS! Virgil is safe.
Virgil’s Solo – i by Kendrick Lamar – His first performance was at a family BBQ at 3 years old. He throws in some floor work, which is a nice change of pace. He can’t compete with the other hip hop dancers as a soloist, so he does a little B-Boy work to distinguish himself. He’s lucky Asaf isn’t around anymore.
