Brandon and Janette brought the judges to their feet, while Randi and Evan faced tough critiques
Jeanine Mason and Phillip Chbeeb of 'So You Think You Can Dance'
Jeanine and Phillip - Performance #1
Choreographers: Youri Nelzine and Lilia Babenko, Russian folk
Monkeys As Critics' Verdict: Lame
Wow, Russian folk dancing, this one pretty much sucks. But as usual, Jeanine looked like an old pro and Phillip looked like the unlucky guy that got pulled out of the audience for a quick folk dancing lesson, grimacing and flinching all the way.
Nigel said it felt a little too folky, and he needed a lot of vodka (which he didn't have) to go with it, which had less to do with them than the style. Mary said Jeanine was believable and Phillip did some flips that were... interesting. As a whole, however, it wasn't difficult. Toasty Oreo said he wanted to honor the fact they worked hard and he was glad Phillip did very well, but only said that after he admitted he thought he'd pretty much suck. I wish everyone would stop being so startled that Phillip can move his arms and legs without collapsing that they fall all over themselves complimenting him for basically showing up and not wetting himself.
