The second elimination episode of season 12 began with a fun group dance to Let The Groove Get In by Justin Timberlake – an awesome song! It was a fun and upbeat dance making it perfect for an opening number. We then learned that Team Stage is still in the lead with the most votes! GO TEAM STAGE!
JaJa, Derek and Alexia took the stage first with a Stacy Tucci routine. The trio danced to All Waters by Perfume Genius, and it was beautiful. I am a huge Alexia fan and loved her in this. JaJa though not perfect was a nice surprise, and of course, Derek killed it.
Moises, Megz and Jim took on a JaQuel Knight routine. While this was right up Megzs’ alley, it was not so much for the guys. However, the three rocked my socks off in this routine to Whateva by Remy Ma. First off, they had amazing jackets with their names on the back. Second of all, they were all hitting hard. I could see that Moises could have been hitting a little harder but I still found the performance very entertaining by all three of them. Moises was then sent to be in the bottom this week.
JJ, Edson and Yorelis danced to Tovaris Wilson’s not so typical jazz routine. It was sassy and very entertaining as the three danced to Restart by Sam Smith. I couldn’t keep my eyes off the screen. This is one I rewatched without hesitation! It was something different and exciting which I loved. However, Edson was told he is in the bottom this week.
Marissa and Asaf danced to this Jean Marc Genereux routine to +1 by Martin Solveig and Sam White. Asaf looked like a B-Boy in this performance, which brought Marissa down a bit. However, I am a Marissa fan and I think she still did very well this week. Asaf was then given the news that he is in the bottom this week.
Gaby, Burim and Ariana got together for a very different type of dance choreographed by Sean Cheesman. Danced to Gorilla by Lord KraVen, it is a very fast-paced dance. It seemed to be a little too much for B-Boy Burim which was unfortunate because I do like him. However, the girls crushed it though the three were rarely on the same beat. I am a fan of Gaby and am impressed by her every week, with this week being no exception. Unfortunately, Burim and Ariana were sent to the bottom this week.
Kate and Neptune took on this emotional routine choreographed by Justin Giles. The pair danced to Promise by Ben Howard. The two were a little off from each other but I could see and feel the connection between them. Unfortunately, Kate was in danger this week and sent to the bottom six.
Hailee and Virgil came together for a Pharside and Phoenix robotic routine. Dancing to Runnin’ by Noahplause, these two were so much fun to watch! This is by far my favorite performance of the night. I could watch it over and over again! I have always been a fan of Virgil though I never really looked at Hailee too close before. I will not make that mistake again after this performance.
The entire team came together for this Jaci Royal routine. The routine was difficult but like nothing else we saw this week. I loved watching this performance to For My Help by Hayden Clanin. The group really crushed it!
This week the hip-hoppers and B-boys danced to a Marty Kudelka routine. It was a cool and smooth performance by the team. Dancing to Break Ya Neck by Busta Rhymes, I really enjoyed Team Street this week!
Moises, Edson, Asaf, Burim, Ariana, and Kate were in the bottom this week. The Twitter votes saved Ariana and Kate leaving the four guys in danger. Leaving us this week was then up to the judges. They decided that stage dancer Moises and street dancer Burim were no longer going to compete to be America’s Favorite Dancer.
