(Entertainment Weekly) – That was a very exciting episode last night. The girls in particular are mighty—we saw a lot of super strong girls. Of course there’s Jaja, first and foremost. And J.J., the girl who was in Comfort’s group, is incredible. There were actually a lot of girls in the highlighted clips who I can’t say by name just yet, but it’s going to be a strong season for the girls. It doesn’t necessarily have to be five girls and five guys on each team this year. We’re not pairing off guy-girl like we did in past seasons. This season, it’s going to be group dances, trios, duets—things like that. Anything goes.

And it was nice to have the highlight of krump in this episode too, like how they highlighted the jit in Detroit, because the birthplace of krump is Los Angeles. We saw a couple of great krumpers—Jaja and B-Dash—who both worked in other styles. I encourage that. I think Nigel said it best: The more you have to offer, the more we have to work with. From the judges’ perspective, it shows the range of what you can do on the show. It looks appealing to the judges, and it looks appealing to the choreographers, especially if you can transition between styles to make it looks seamless. The way Jaja goes between animation and krump is a seamless transition; it’s almost like she mixes the two together. It’s exciting. I think it gets the choreographers’ wheels turning.
