The judges give a lot more substantive feedback tonight, which is much more interesting than generalized shrieks and love, maybe because with fewer dancers there’s more time to talk to them? The music is much more varied, too, with numbers from David Bowie, Tito Puente, Eartha Kitt and Bronski Beat. There’s also a new choreographer, Justin Giles.
