It was performed by Jenna Johnson and Tucker Knox, we thought they shared great chemistry together. We never found ourselves focused on either individual but on the pairing and the choreography itself.
Speaking of new choreographers, lets not forget Lindsay Nelko. She really gave Paul and Makenzie a number that brought them to the surface. We thought it was great to see a more mature side of this pairing.
These two took the challenge of portraying an emotional situation with flying colors. Definitely a good week for this pairing and we are sure we will see more from Lindsay in episodes to come. If you want an amazing Broadway routine, Spencer is the man! He brings cute concepts and old time classic music to life with his staging and charisma. The backdrop was a crime scene where a detective is visited by the ghost of a woman who is found dead. They made this routine come to life!
We felt as though we were watching an episode of CSI — the dance version of course! Loved the pairing, loved this choreographer, loved this piece with our whole heart. Sonya Tayeh has changed my life forever, and tonight she did the same for Malece. What a treat it was to be able to watch such artistry being born on that stage. Now, when the Allstars step in, there is a somewhat stronger energy on the stage. We think there is a certain sense of knowledge and confidence given to the contestants, and we think this definitely gave Malece the boost she needed.
Malece was shining just as we first believed she could. Looking back on the solo round, we were happy we got to see Alexis show off her skill in tapping.

She was incredible and did exactly what she had to do to stay in the competition. She WOWed and impressed.
We are so happy to see a female tapper in the ranks. Next, we had Jasmine M, a beautiful dancer with so much soul. Last was Jenna Johnson.
She works her body and the camera very well. So unfortunate to lose someone who we felt was doing so great and showed so much potential, but this season is jammed packed with talent.
So we feel with whomever we lose, it will be sad to see them go. As the competition presses on we may see our favorites in the bottom from time to time. So live in the moment and make it last. It really gave me a chance to see how we work together Also now it makes me want to thank Sonya for pushing me so hard because she was the first one to drill into me that, "You did good; now do better. That was amazing; make it great. I think we both did. At the beginning I didn't know Fik-Shun.
We were partnered together, and I was like, "He's a hip-hop dancer. He's never partnered before. But that first piece — I don't know, something happened, he clicked on. He got everything right away. He wasn't dancing for himself. He was with me. And if that could happen in one week, I was like, "This is going to be a good season with him.
Check out their first performance together: That one and the bellhop dance are definitely the most iconic dances for you as partners. We got to be serious and we got to be super fun and sexy! What did those bellhop outfits feel like to wear? It was different definitely.
It was kind of restrictive at first.
But once you kind of get into character, you make it work for you. It all comes together in the end.
It was fun putting it back on again [tonight]. It was like, "Oh, OK let's do this again! It's not really just about the bellhop.
It's like -- Fik-Shun: We have to work, but we want to have fun instead of work.
We're having our own party! Let's just have a party.

That was our thought process throughout the whole thing. Relive their iconic hip-hop bellhop routine: Which choreographers did you feel understood you the most and were able to get the most out of you? Just the way she works and brings things out of people, sometimes things you didn't realize were in you yourself. She doesn't take any excuses and doesn't want to hear reasons why you can't do something.
She wants you to do it first and try your best and then say, "Oh, OK this is tough, but I'll work to get it. Definitely Sonya, but also Travis [Wall]. I think because he was also choreographing ["Wicked Game"] as well as dancing it, we had this bond that was kind of like — it was unexplainable. It kind of clicked because the way he worked is the way I worked. We both wanted to make this memorable for both of us.
It was really magical.
