I am worried about Mary Murphy's mental health.

I'm sure she's a nice lady, but this season in particular Mary seems to grab onto a particular annoying catchphrase that in previous seasons she had only employed to a certain extent, but this season she seems pathologically unable to let it go.

Tonight it was "Yes you did!"/"No you didn't!" repeated after each comment she made about everyone.

Mary, please get help.While Mary did actually have a few things to shout about tonight, the episode didn't get off to a great start.

Karla Garcia and Jonathan Platero performed a Dave Scott-choreographed hip-hop dance, and it was clear before they even hit the stage that Jonathan was going to have a hard time with it.� Karla could definitely pull off a smooth criminal character, but Jonathan didn't have an inner gangster: he lacked the groove and funk, as guest judge Toni Basil put it ("groove," "funk," "street" and "ghetto" being some of her favorite words).� Nigel seemed practically angry about the performance, which was a pity because I think Karla actually did a good job and it was clear she was upset by the vehemence of the criticism.� Then again, Nigel just had neck surgery so maybe he was crabby.� Next, Asuka Kondoh and Vitolio Jeune performed a Mandy Moore jazz dance.� I was definitely feeling Asuka and Vitolio start to come together as a couple, especially as he comforted her as she began to feel overwhelmed, but I just didn't get the dance.� According to the judges, the dancers and choreographer did a great job, but between the jazzercise-type costumes, the Pat Benatar music and the "fresh rocker jazz" moves, I wasn't sure what I was looking at.

Nigel loved it, although Mary didn't think the pair were quite as great as they were last week.� Melissa Sandvig and Ade Obayomi danced a Tony Meredith rumba, and I must say, for a senior citizen, Melissa looked amazing in her dress.

I thought she and Ade made a sexy pair onstage although to my eyes the rumba lacked a little crispness, which was understandable since neither are ballroom dancers.� However the judges seemed to overlook the weaknesses as they mostly focused on the emotion and sensual chemistry between the pair.� All said, I thought they did a good job for being out of their depth somewhat, but it wasn't a transcendent performance.
