Kayla stayed on the Tamale Train, but Jonathan and Karla render Mary speechless
Randi Evans and Evan Kasprzak of 'So You Think You Can Dance'
Randi and Evan
Monkeys As Critics' Verdict: Not a high five, but okay
First, we learn something new and exciting about our couple, a little humanizing technique which is only serving to make our dancers seem really, really boring and in some cases annoying and/or hateful. Word to producers: a little mystery is okay. I don’t need to know who blows spit bubbles and who does bad impressions and who has a felony record (okay, that would be interesting). All this cornball info just spreads a thin layer of ick over the entire show. But I digress. Anyway, Randi talks baby talk to a little white kickdog (as I said, annoying and/or hateful), and Evan built a car (okay, that’s pretty cool).
In jamming out a jive, our teensy tiny power duo did indeed look like they were having fun (and it seems like the producers and judges enjoyed themselves way too much running a count of how many times they could say "fun" in the segment). But as much fun, fun, FUN as they had, none of the judges were really wowed. Lil ’C said Evan was too smooth, Mary was a little disappointed given that Randi and Evan were made to jive (whatever that means), and Nigel thought Evan lacked pop on his double bounce (in other words, what Lil ’C said, but fancier). But am I still rooting for these guys? Yeah. C’mon, Evan built a CAR.
