The one routine that fell flat was the jazz piece choreographed by Tyce Diorio for Valerie Rockey and Ade Obayomi from Season 5, I really have liked Valerie and the way she has been showing she is more robin's egg blue leather ballet shoes - full sole (or split sole) - adult sizes than a tap dancer, but I think this routine might get her booted next week, and I’m not sure that all the fault was Valerie’s, Tara told her that her emotions weren’t there for the entire performance, Mary said that Valerie was sweet, but when she needed to take on a rougher, angrier character, she didn’t did deep enough, Nigel was brutal — “I love you, but I didn’t love you tonight, People need to remember how good you’ve been (when they vote).”..

For his part, Lorenz said, “The council is like a board of directors and I have served on many so I know the role. (It is) serving as a liaison between the council and the community. I’ve done outreach with city residents and sought input from stakeholders when I was on planning commission and I think as Raj mentioned it, you are part of a team.
