Summary of & # 39; Dancing With the Stars: Juniors & # 39 ;: Season 1, Episode 2

adminOctober 15, 2018

You did not think that the miniaturized version of DWTS It was so bad, either? Have you ever seen tiny people dancing their little faces? Well, I'm glad to know that I'm not alone. A warning before continuing: the children will dance with songs of the year they were born tonight, which was two years ago (I'm bad at math!), So be prepared to feel old. Like, very, very old. Fun, right? Let's Dance!

Mackenzie Ziegler and Sage Rosen
Teacher: Gleb Savchenko
Quick step, "Are you going to be my girl?" Jet
At least they are facilitating the "year you were born" with the oldest celebrity, born from the beginning 2004. We already know that Mackenzie is a performer, so we should not be surprised that the performance value of this small and friendly fast-paced entertainer is high. Mackenzie knows how to sell it! She and Sage are a good team and even in the second week, they already seem comfortable together. The judges are happy to see that this week is more grounded throughout the whole routine and there is more content in quick steps. Val Chmerkovskiy gives them a standing ovation, which, for example, keep it all together, this is only the second week.
Score of the judges: 24/30

Church Sky Brown and JT
Mentor: Alan Bersten
Cha Cha, "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga with Colby O & # 39; Donis
Can we all agree that Sky is a queen in training? The "little package of wonders," as Mandy calls her, does not even know what year she was born because she guesses what. Queens do not need to know silly things like personal biographical information. They have other people to do that for them. The queens are also intrepid, which Sky proves to be a lot, since she is given a cha cha routine with a lot of technical elements and does not get away from anything. Val loves how mature he is, Adam praises how clean routine is and Mandy says his intense face. The girl must have gone to the Mark Ballas Facial Expressions School.
Score of the judges: 22/30

Sophia Pippen and Jake Monreal
Mentor: Sasha Farber
Foxtrot, "Love Story" by Taylor Swift
It's kind of amazing to see Sophia. Like last week, she is incredibly shy in the rehearsals and in the dance before the camera, but then the music starts and she goes for it. She and Jake (who seems to be the perfect companion for someone so hesitant) dance an adorable foxtrot with a Taylor Swift jam. She is wearing a princess dress and there are little touches on her nose. It's very nice, but the judges are a little hard on Sophia: Mandy wants her to work on his arms and extensions, and Adam wants to see more of his personality. Hard people!
Score of the judges: 20/30

Jason Maybaum and Elliana Walmsley
Mentor: Emma Slater
Jive, "Shake It" by the subway station
Jayson, who is having his (very short) life apparently, and Ellianna gives us an extra-terrestrial jive because … I do not know, they found those alien diadems in the wardrobe and wanted to turn them around? I do not understand it, but the judges are On it. Val loves the content that Jayson received and both Mandy and Adam praise their confidence on and off the dance floor. Mandy may not praise him so much after he asks her to define "balance" just to see if he knows what it means. How much are these judges paid? Hopefully it's a lot.
Score of the judges: 21/30

Mandla Morris and Brightyn Brems
Mentor: Cheryl Burke
Salsa, "Pump It" by The Black Eyed Peas
Wait a second, is the reason why the Mandla and Brightyn salsa theme is "old-time gas station" because they are dancing to a song called "Pump It?" I do not hate it, I just ask. Mandla and Brightyn, despite some disappointing scores, remain a highlight. The three judges beat them because the routine did not have enough sauce content, but that's not in Mandla. They want Mandla to really feel the dance style she's playing. What I can probably do! Given the correct choreography! Anyway, dismissing the child is what I am saying.
Score of the judges: 22/30

Hudson West and Kameron Couch
Mentor: Hayley Erbert
Pasodoble, "4 Minutes" by Madonna with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland
Pasodoble must be a tough style for these children. It's so intense and it's about making these shapes bigger than life, but their bodies are so small! He looks a bit uncomfortable in Hudson, but you can tell he's doing his best. Val CAN NOT BELIEVE that she has just seen a superhero cloak turned into a cloak (come out more, friend, but also: yes, Hayley!). Mandy thought that Hudson really embodied his character and the character of the dance. Adam wants Hudson to relax a little. We're all supposed to be having fun here!
Score of the judges: 22/30

Miles Brown and Rylee Arnold
Mentor: Lindsay Arnold
Tango Argentino, "I do not want to be" by Gavin DeGraw
So the 2004 success of Gavin DeGraw "I do not want to be" might not be my First Option for an Argentine tango, but Miles and Rylee do it. Sometimes, it feels more like a step, but you really own this routine. He has a lot more technique and partner work (especially on hold) than his salsa from the first week, but does not intimidate Miles. Mandy loved knowing that Miles was in charge all the time: he was leading. Val agrees, and points out how difficult it is to have control during a dance like that when your partner is taller than you. #ShortPeopleProblems
Score of the judges: 24/30

Alana Thompson and Tristan Ianiero
Mentor: Artem Chigvintsev
Cha Cha, "Do not Cha" by The Pussycat Dolls & Busta Rhymes
True confession: I was going to come here to criticize the fact that they have a 13-year dance for "Don & # 39; t Cha", but then Val uttered the most glorious phrase that has been uttered in this program: "I never thought I would get excited a Pussycat Doll song, but … "My heart grew 10 sizes. He is proud to see Alana's transformation in this program. Mandy has some constructive criticism: Alana needs to work on her time, she is getting too excited and she gets ahead of the music. Adam points out that sometimes he seems to be "walking around like [she was] at the mall, "but at least it was less walking than the first week.
Score of the judges: 19/30

Akash Vukoti and Kamri Peterson
Mentor: Witney Carson
Cha Cha, "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz
It does not matter if you do not know how to explain swagger, as long as you can act with a little cha cha. I mean, did you see him tutting? Akashi has a little baby swag! Who knows? As beautiful as these routines are, my favorite part of all this is still our DWTS The professionals as mentors. Witney looks like he could have his hands fuller with Akash and Kamri. If he explains no, he never said that this routine was "partying" is a delight. The judges do not offer real criticism, so, thanks for being here, I suppose.
Score of the judges: 21/30

Ariana Greenblatt and Artyon Celestine
Mentor: Brandon Armstrong
Jive, "Bride" by Avril Lavigne
I'm sorry, did you see Artyon jump over Ariana's head? Come on! Val calls the couple to win and could be right: they have both sides of this show: performance and technique, below. Adam even gives his punk rock jive (why have not we always been jiving to this jam from Avril since 2007?) A standing ovation, which I think is something we are doing now in this program. The official leaderboard could have a three-way tie at the top, but it seems that Ariana and Artyon also have the crowd behind them. Well, now I need to do a Google search for an adult-sized punk tutu. The heart wants what the heart wants!
Score of the judges: 24/30

With all the festive and cheerful that this show tries to be, we still have to deal with the depressing issue of eliminating another couple. Unfortunately, this week means saying goodbye to Team Hayley: Hudson and Kameron.
