Mary tells the two that they are looking for one ballroom girl. Mary then praises Witney for her technique before announcing that Witney will be in the Top 20. She then follows by telling Lindsay that she's also in the Top 20. She dances a cha-cha-cha with Lindsay and Nick Bloxsom-Carter. The piece was danced to "Dance Again" by Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull and choreographed by Jason Gilkison. Mary announces that she's proud of them and how it's great there are three ballroom dancers this season. Both Witney and Lindsay are praised by Mary, telling them that they are "two of the hottest tamales we've had on this show for sure". Guest judge Zooey Deschanel tells them that they were perfectly synchronized.


Week 1 (July 11, 2012)Edit

Witney and partner Chehon danced a Bollywood by Nakul Dev Mahajan to "Tandav Music" by Aatish Kapadia. Guest judge Adam Shankman praises the choreographer, saying that everytime there's bollywood on the show, it's just pure delight. He tells the couple that they were fantastic but tells Witney to dance with a long neck, shoulders down. Mary tells the two that even though they were apart for some of the routine, she still felt the chemistry between them. Nigel tells them that he was delighted to see the pair do this because he doesn't think they did themselves proud last week, and they did this week with this bollywood.

Mary praises them for their musicality as she starts tearing up. She tells them this is their most defining moment yet in the competition. Nigel praises the pair, telling them that he's glad they saved them last week during the results because if they didn't, then they wouldn't have seen this performance.
