That was my initial thought as well. But then I remembered last season, where the judges pretty much had decided who was going home before the episode started and you could read it through their critiques. So there is something to me said for getting it out of the way. It must be tough on the dancers, but it didn't show in their performances.
It was interesting that the one couple that got a terrible review wasn't in the bottom - the anti-Nigel backlash lives on, I guess. I enjoyed this week overall but didn't think anything stood out tremendously above or below the rest so the results will be interesting. My favorite was probably the Paul & Makenzie piece (which looked more hip-hop than the first Nappy-Tabs hip-hop piece), but I liked the Amy & Fik-shun routine as well. Amy's my favorite of the girls, not sure among the guys but it's probably one of those two.
