Brandon and Janette brought the judges to their feet, while Randi and Evan faced tough critiques
Ade Obayomi and Melissa Sandvig of 'So You Think You Can Dance'
Melissa and Ade - Performance #1
Choreographer: Doriana Sanchez, disco
Monkeys As Critics' Verdict: Got the fever
Good lord, Doriana Sanchez does not mess around. This was like four routines smashed into one. But leave it to Melissa and Ade to bring it, even if there were a few moments in the lifts when I could swear I could see them both counting steps, but hell, Ade had to fling Melissa around like an old sweat sock, so a little caution is not such a bad thing to prevent a massive head injury. They weren't exactly Janette and Brandon, but they were damn close.
Nigel said it was an absolutely incredible start to the evening and said they were tremendous despite Melissa falling on her ass. Mary asked for an amen from the disco gods, said it was really well done and that both of them let it rip, which sounds gross but was really a compliment. Toasty Oreo (Tyce DiOrio) said it was friggin' great and that Melissa's body was brilliant. Then he just got all excited about being on the judges' panel and gave Mary a high five, which made her screech like a howler monkey.
