Surprisingly, Nigel didn’t find Janelle the belly dancer sexy during her cha cha!

Janelle Issis and Dareian Kujawa danced a cha cha on So You Think You Can Dance season 9 top 16.

Choreographer: Pasha Kovalev

Music: “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen

Judging on SYTYCD Season 9:

Cat Deely mentioned she loves the song.

Christina Applegate – “It’s not your genre. It’s not your thing. And I think you guys gave your best effort…” She praised Janelle for her inner sparkle, and said Dareian had some odd hand movements.

Mary Murphy – She said they had a couple of phenomenal tricks, but the dancing was going in and out, there as no chemistry, and they had bad transitions. Yikes! The feet, for both, wasn’t that good.

Nigel Lythgoe – He also said Dariean needed to watch his hands, and his feet. Janelle is so sexy when she belly danced, but Nigel didn’t find her sexy at all in this routine.
