The Top 6 will perform two numbers tonight.  The pressure is on!  This is the last week that the contestants will be judged with their partners as a couple. 

Jesse Tyler Fergueson and Sonya Tayek join Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe on the Judges table.  It turns out that Jesse has an extensive Broadway background.  Who knew?  I just knew he is pretty funny on Ordinary Family

Sasha and Alexander:  They danced the Paso Doble with choreograhy by Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin.  The story is the battle between masculinity and femininity.   What a brilliant Paso Doble!  It was powerful and was everything that I want to see in the Paso.  Both Sasha and Alexander  were fierce, but Sasha may have a bit more intensity.  This was some pretty hot stuff.  Lol.  Sasha did the traditional male knee (crawl thing) sweep with Alexander.   Nigel:  He thought the choreoraphy recognized Sasha’s strengths and played to them.   He also thought that Alexander kept up with her, which is difficult to do,  because Sasha is such a strong great character.  Mary:  She called for an Ole from the crowd, because they deserve it.  She felt that Sasha dominated and she has never seen a woman do a leg crawl like she did.  Alexander had a breakthrough tonight.  Sasha was a little bit stronger, but he did a good job.  Jesse:  It was highly dramatical and he loved it.  Sasha is such a pillar of strength and Alexander completely came up to her level.  Sonya:  Sasha you rock my socks.  You indulge in it (the performance).   She also feels that  Alexander has it in him, but he has to trust himself more.   The choreographers are  dedicating this dance to their friend who is fighting cancer.  Video    888.836.7601
