The opening routine, with the 18 remaining dancers, feels like it owes more of its coolness to the costumes than the choreography. It was done by Christopher "Pharside" Jennings and Krystal "Phoenix" Meraz of the Academy of Villains crew.
The contestants are introduced in pairs, based on who they danced with last week -- the notable exception is Stanley & Jessica, newly paired after their former partners were eliminated:
Tanisha Belnap & Rudy Abreu
Valerie Rockey & Ricky Ubeda
Bridget Whitman & Emilio Dosal
Carly Blaney & Serge Onik
Emily James & Teddy Coffey
Jourdan Epstein & Marcquet Hill
