Nigel praises their “stank steps”, complete with extremely unnecessary impression, and the rest of the judges agree that it was brilliant…. I kinda tuned out because I was mesmerized by those baby blues and painted-on abs.
The judges loved its technical accuracy and the way the dancers “lost themselves in the movement”, but I found it neither exciting nor memorable. It had more drama and stunts than the previous dance, and it’s a ballroom routine.
The whole number is dynamic, thrilling, and definitely entertaining.
It’s the first Broadway this season, but I think it’s one of the better ones in recent years of the show.
Their choreographer, Nakul Dev Mahajan, said there was no storyline and it was “all about the stamina, the speed, and getting the hands right.” I wonder if this guy is single, am I right ladies?!?
The routine was sloppy and out of sync in parts, but given how insanely difficult it was, they did a great job.
