Admirable job—energy was definitely good (and apparently, so were whatever drugs/shots they gave him to dance through that madness). Lindsay Lindsay pulls Broadway and Jakob out of the hat, and Spencer Liff’s Fosse-esque routine was an excellent proving ground for our ballroom girl.
This dance was different enough from what I've gotten used to from her but still with the same sort of girl power, in your face, creepy weirdness that gets under your skin and makes your hairs stand up.
I'm not sure it would have been quite as awesome if different people were dancing it but with these two girls it was out of this world.
He’s a blond Pacey Witter (and I had a MAD crush on Joshua Jackson on Dawson’s Creek), with all of the goof and precious little of the brooding, smoldering heat. His feet are horrible, his reach, stretch and extension need a GREAT deal of development, and I’m not quite sure what emotion he was supposed to be selling me.
I suppose it doesn’t help that compared to me, he’s basically jailbait—Kathryn might find him cute enough to slither around with, but he just makes me want to pat him on the head and give him some milk and cookies. But I know one thing—the boy is one hell of a partner.
Will Naku Dev Mahajan Kathryn Mc Cormack = Bollywood snake charmer.
Always a marathon dance energywise, I’m afraid Will sacrificed precision for energy in too many places.
In case the celeb judges and out-sized personalities are more your speed, they had that in spades last night with the orangest man in history, Rob Marshall and the weirdest woman who isn't Grace Jones, Lady Ga Ga at the judges' desk. Rob Marshall made Mary Murphy look like a color found in nature.
I can spend all day telling you how bored I am with Sonya's jazz routines but when she's on her game, she is ON HER GAME.
While I’m not an expert on the exact arm and hand placements and their meanings, I do know that Kathryn’s steel-straight precise arms made Will’s flailing spaghetti arms stick out.
As for the “acting,” I’m on the fence—it usually tends to be over-the-top in a Bollywood number, but on Will he somehow managed to look like he was trying too hard AND wasn’t trying hard enough at the same time.
That’s either a really gracious reprieve for Cole’s foot or a really rabid Gene Kelly fan.
