    I literally started screaming "NO! NO!" at the top of my lungs when I heard Missing come on

    Not sure about the music choice for Maia and Alex. A lot of people still remember the Duchesnays interpretation to it...

    I got the sense the Shibutanis weren't comfortable with the Yankee Polka compulsory pattern.

    I remember this music from Blake R. ?I think this is a nice softer version of it.

    It needs better highlights though...

    A good choice none the less.

    Looks like the levels are a problem for Maia and Alex as well. They are lower than everyone but Coomes/Buckland.

    ETA: That said, you have to admire them for trying something different. I sort of groaned when I thought they were doing Mary Poppins.

    I love the Shibs! But that SD concept was a miscalculation. Plus they had a few small mistakes here and there and by the end the energy was down. They looked a bit tired. For this piece to work they really need to sell it throughout and keep the energy consistent through the slow and fast parts.

    They got totally shafted in favor of the hometown teams here in this competition. They can't give the other teams any reason to give them lower scores. It's gonna be a blood bath for them.

    To be fair, the Shibs didn't do themselves any favors by losing levels either. :(

    I think that was the point - they wanted to emulate the most successful brother sister duo
