After we watch the top eight strut their stuff, Cat comes out to talk some stuff about how it gets harder and harder each week to pick favorites. Not for me! Week in, week out, it's Cat! Joining Mary and Nigel today at the judging table is Toni "Oh Mickey You're So Fine You're So Fine You Blow My Mind Hey Mickey! Hey Mickey!" Basil. Cat awesomely asks, "Yeah, we all know you did 'Mickey,' what have you been up to lately?" With "lately" encompassing twenty-six years. But don't you worry about Toni Basil: she's working with Bette Midler and Tina Turner. Toni Basil be doing just fine.
Will and Courtney are doing hip-hop and samba this week. Jean-Marc Genereux and France are teaching them the samba, which is a "feast for the hips," Jean-Marc tells us, and he busts out some pro wrestling moves to help Will loosen up his hips.
They dance to Che' Nelle's "I Fell In Love With The DJ," Courtney in a by-now-trademarked partial dress, this one yellowy and fringey, Will in black, a sleeveless sheer shirt, which is the missing link between "shirtless" and "shirt." It looks good to me -- synced footwork, good energy, good chemistry. Courtney stretches out on Will's shoulder and he spins around, hands-free.
