Bruno: I love your ENTHUSIASM!!! You looked like you were having fun OUT THERE! Next time, you should do it on top of our desk. LIKE THIS!!

Carrie-Ann: I agree with Bruno. You DID look like you were having fun out there. I thought I saw a lift, but then I realized you didn't actually have a partner. But then I took a point off for the lift anyway. Because if I thought I saw it, it must have happened.

Len: Look, I appreciate an enthusiastic performance as much as the next crusty old British guy, but that just wasn't very good. I mean, points for keeping time with the music, but the constant switching between heel leads and toe leads was just distracting to people like me who give a shit about a heel lead and know what one looks like.

Crowd: Boooooooo

Scores:

Bruno: 10
Carrie-Ann: 9
Len: 4

Crowd: Boooooooo

Tom: I think Len was just talking Jive.

Crowd: Grooooooan

Tom: Let's head backstage to hear how our contestants feel.

Brooke: Where am I? Why do I have this microphone?

I can't help see this kid and see dollar signs in some momager's eyes. Vaya con Dios, young mofo.

He looked exactly like an old man walking around. While looking anxiously for a toilet.

Here's a video of his parents doing the jive.

The bow at the end is what killed me.

HOLD ME CLOSER, TINY DANCER.

"Dancing? I'm not dancing!" young William screamed bitterly ... "My asshole itches, and I can't scratch it!"

Dear god the kid lipsyncs the song too. And at the end waves his fingers as if to say "c'mon people, BRING IT, I busted my ass for you tonight!"

Adorable!

Love it. The bow, and then blowing a kiss towards the end... this has improved my quite-shitty Monday morning dramatically.

Thanks, gman.
