Phillip and Jeanine
Choreographers: Napoleon and Tabitha Dumo, hip hop
Monkeys As Critics' Verdict: Who cares? Phillip should GO
Oh, yay, Phillip, who can’t dance anything but hip hop, gets a pass this week. How exactly has he pulled his one area of expertise out of the hat twice in four weeks? Have producers determined he’s such a fan favorite he must stick around? Ironically, I thought Jeanine was the better dancer this time, but she’s the better dancer every time, isn’t she? Nothing against Phillip, but when you watch Randi and Evan or Brandon and Janette, you see exactly how little he’s bringing to the table. But he’ll stick around like a bad rash or “According to Jim,” impossible to explain but tenacious nonetheless.
Nigel thought they should be chained together for life and gave Jeanine props for looking like a hip hop natural. Mary thought it was incredibly creative and thought Phillip brought it and Jeanine was crazy good. Mia said the concept was there but got caught up in the chainography and had more criticism for the sloppy chain than either Jeanine or Phillip, so go figure. They’re not bottom three. Again.
