Jessica Richens and All-Star Ade Obayomi-Jazz

Rick Ubeda and Valerie Rockey-Broadway

Jacque Lewarne and Zack Everhart Jr.-Foxtrot

Nigel said that the performance wouldn't get them votes. Christina tried to be more positive by telling them to reach within their souls when performing, because then the piece will come together.
Jacque Lewarne and All-Star Will Wingfield-Contemporary
Jacque and Will had one of the most memorable performances of the night with their contemporary piece. The piece used a red balloon to demonstrate the tenderness of first love. Christine said it made her heart warm. Nigel said it was so brilliant that it made he forget about the foxtrot.
Zack Everhart Jr. and All-Star Du-Shaunt "Fik-Shun" Stegall-Hip Hop
