Maybe someone who is more in tune with British customs can tell me why Nigel offered the audience “Soup and Blankets” tonight. I thought it was hilarious, but I totally didn’t get it.
They really front loaded the show tonight with the amazing dancers. Twitch and Kherington were amazing. Only Kherington could look that good in an orange jumpsuit, and I loved their matching fake glasses. The guys are working the popularity vote like crazy! And I think it’s working.
Gev and his partner were also a-freaking-mazing. The rumba was totally hot, and her dress was amazing!
I liked Tice’s choreography with the African themed jazz thing, and I didn’t think they did as bad as the judges made them out to be.
Will and Jessica… Disco? Well, she just looks like a robot compared to him. He needs a new partner before she sinks him.
I still can’t stand Matt. I’m not sure what it is about him.
I love Thayne and Chelsea. They’re quirky and fun, but what was up with their song… Can’t hurry love? Come on… crappy song choice. It just didn’t fit the dance style at all for me – and they didn’t do very well either… oops.
Mr Axe Murderer and Yet-Another-Chelsea… besides the fact that I can’t ever remember their names… I absolutely, positively, really loved this choreography, and they did a really good job with it, too.

This one deserved a video. I think it might stand out as one of the best routines of the year, on par with the bench routine from Season 2 and the table routine of Season 3. You know why? All of those were incredible stories. The other two or three awesome routines tonight were fun, sexy, and well executed, but this is the one we remember because of it’s really cool story.
I have to ask, who is this Joshua guy that keeps showing up every week with his gangsta grill and hair, and who is just an INCREDIBLE dancer! He tears it up every week when I’m just absoulely sure he’s going to tank… Broadway? Jazz? Samba? He can do it all! Talk about unexpected… this guy is sick!
