Smac’s eccentric dance talent wowed audiences and creators alike as she made it through the first round of “All Eyes on You.” In the Freestyle Battle Round, she takes on plus-size model Jeremy and impresses the crowd with her flawless caterpillar dance move. Shakira praises the Land Down Under contender for incorporating comedy into her dance performance. The round that followed, “The Dance Along,” was a no-brainer for the Aussie creator as she was part of the winning team (with Caitlyn, Marcus and Marco) which choreographed this week’s special celebrity guest Nikki Glaser to perfection brought. In Duo Collabs, Smac teams up with flight attendant Marcus to perform a choreography created by one of the creators, Liza Koshy. Although the pair ended up in a red capsule, Nick couldn’t help but notice their amusing way of crawling in the middle of their dance lesson. Shakira compared the duo’s flawless “in sync” performance to her own and Nick’s. As the audience picked Tyra and Jeremy as the winning combo and the Creators, being able to save two individual contestants, saved Smac and Marcus and propelled them to the semifinals.
Smac stole the show on The Shake-Up session by transforming into a chair when they were asked to use it as a prop in the dance, choreographed by presenter Camille Kostek. Not only did this get the creators, Nick in particular, laughing, but viewers at home also quoted it on Twitter. One Twitter user wrote: “Go ahead Smac kill it as #DancingWithMyself”
Another viewer couldn’t believe what they were seeing, tweeting: “Did she just make her chair??! #DancingWithMyself”
After being rescued by the creators, Smac advances to the final round, Be the Creator. She had to perform a dance she choreographed at home in the finals, to the same tune as the other contestant, Tyra. The audience has a final chance to choose the winner and who will receive the $25,000 prize. Even if Smac falls short of Tyra’s performance, fans on social media are wowed by her dance. One of them praised her performance and crowned her favorite: “#DancingWithMyself SMAC is my favorite!! Sha dances sooooo good!!!”
Impressed by their performance, one crazed fan didn’t shy away from asking for Smac’s hand, as they tweeted: “#smac #DancingWithMyself #mvp and marry me.”
