Vanessa called Logan an insane dancer, Mary called the routine sweet, innocent, and playful; adding that Logan was born to dance.

The All Stars performed a Jaci Royal routine.

Lex and Taylor kick off round two with a Classical Jazz routine from Spencer Liff to “An American in Paris” that brought the judges to their feet. Vanessa said that she would pay good money to see that routine on Broadway; adding that it was incredible and beautiful. Mary loved the concept; adding that Taylor’s legs go on forever and Logan is so strong. Nigel simply said, “one of the best dance routines ever on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’.”

Koine and Kiki performed a Val Chmerkovskiy Salsa dance that had Mary screaming and putting the duo on her hot tamale train. Mary said that Koine looked like a Ballroom dancer.

Calling it an insane routine, Vanessa said that Logan’s control and flexibility was mind blowing. Calling Logan brilliant, Mary said that Kaylee was having a great night. Cat said that Kaylee took it to the dark side.

The final dance of the night was a Christopher Scott Hip-Hop routine from two of the dancers that were in the bottom three last week – Mark and Dassy. The duo are broken manikins who have found some umbrellas. During rehearsals Dassy kept breaking the umbrellas. They stayed in character even after the routine was over. Saying that it was a lot of fun, Vanessa said they did some great work. Mary called the routine the cutest thing and they pulled it out. Calling the routine great fun, Nigel said that the past four routines made him hark for the days when they had 20 dancers who performed with each other.

The bottom three this week were Kassy, Kaylee, and Koine. Noting that it was an unanimous decision this week, Nigel said that Kaylee was a unique dancer who had done very well, Dassy had a wonderful presence about her and was magical to watch; noting that she made her country and the show proud, and Koine did whatever she was given to do brilliantly; adding that he didn’t know why she was in the bottom this week. Nigel saved Koine, leaving Kassy and Kaylee in the bottom and facing elimination.

The dancer going home this week was Dassy. Kaylee is safe for another week.
