At 8 pm, ABC is airing a special featuring the judges which I won’t be liveblogging. Sorry! But I’m putting up the results post early, in case some of you are watching and want to discuss.
At 9/8c, I’ll begin blogging the results show.
Double elimination tonight!
Drew and Anna are the First Elimination
Helio and Chelsie are Second
Holy crap. Bristol and Mark are NEVER going home are they? How many champion dancers (They knocked off TWO tonight) will they beat out before we’re all put out of our collective misery? Jeez. Don’t you tea party people have some campaigning to do or something? The DWTS producers knew exactly what they were doing when they brought Bristol back. CONTROVERSY. She’s the contestant you love to hate. Or maybe you just hate her.
This week’s reprise is Shawn and Derek’s Quickstep! No surprise there.
Melissa and Tony, Gilles and Peta, Kirstie and Maks and Emmitt and Cheryl are up first.
Frankie Moreno is a Las Vegas performer (I had to Google!) performs a medley of songs on the piano that’s super Vegas review-like. A bit cheesy for my tastes. Lacey Schwimmer and Kyle Massey perform!
Shawn and Derek, Apolo and Karina, Drew and Anna and Kelly and Val are up next. Shawn and Derek and Apolo and Karina are SAFE. Drew and Anna are STILL IN JEOPARDY. Kelly and Val are SAFE
It’s time for the first elimination. Drew and Anna are ELIMINATED! Kirstie and Maks are SAFE
The Couples Choose Dance Styles for Each Other next! The styles are listed on a board. This is a little convoluted, but who picks for who depends on the couples’ scores. Tom explains is the strategy is to give a style a couple doesn’t want to somebody else. The couple with the lowest cumulative score this season chooses for the couple with the highest. The couple with the second lowest score will choose for the couple with the second highest score and so on. Each couple has 10 seconds to choose.
And here’s how it went: Bristol and Mark chooses for Gilles and Peta. They pick Bollywood. Kirsty and Maks choose Disco for Sabrina and Louis. Helio and Chelsie pick Mambo for Shawn and Derek. Kelly and Val pick Bolero for Emmitt and Cheryl. Melissa and Tony pick Hip Hop for Apolo and Karina. Apolo and Karina pick Jitterbug for Melissa and Tony. Emmitt and Cheryl pick Contemporary for Kelly and Val. Shawn and Derik pick Broadway for Helio and Chelsie. . Sabrina and Louis choose The Charleston for Kirstie and Maks. Bristol and Mark will dance Rock and Roll.
Joshua Johnson is a junior at Penn State University. He’s from Harlem NY and couldn’t afford the tuition. He raised money tap dancing in the subway. He dances to “New York New York”
Karmin sing a medley of their hits.
