I enjoyed the opening group number, choreographed by Wade Robson, and reminiscent of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon with its floating geishas and sneaky ninjas. It was also exciting to hear that four of last season’s routines were nominated for best choreography: Tabitha and Napoloeon’s “Bleeding Love,” Mia Michaels’ “Mercy,” Tyce Diorio’s “Adam and Eve,” and Dmitry Chaplin’s “A Los Amigos.” I remember all of those very well except for the Adam and Eve one, which must have been one of the last dances that Will and Jessica did together. Anyway, I’ll save further discussion of these Emmy nominees for a later post. On with the top ten results show. I should mention that Cat was trying to turn a knight’s chain mail into a dress, but I wasn’t buying it.
