Dancing With The Stars – Top 13 – VIDEO

Once again, Mya and Dmitry, clean up the floor with the other “stars”, making the dance thang look so easy. Mya for the win! But what the hell is wrong with Len and his stupid 7 for a dance that clearly deserved better? Still 27 put them at the top of the leaderboard, where they belong. Olympic swimmer, Nancy Coughlin, who danced a sultry rumba was right behind her at 26.

DANCE CAPTAIN DANCE ATTACK: Ben Goe...
DANCE CAPTAIN DANCE ATTACK: Ben Goes Back to School with MEAN GIRLS!

Aaron Carter was humbled this week by the Rumba, only scoring 21, after leading last week. Donny Osmond, not very convincing playing a hot latin heartthrob, also scored 21.

Low scores of the night went to Michael Ervin at 14. The football player effect will probably save him this week. Probably in danger is Debi Mazur, a hot tamale when she’s lighting up the screen, but on the dance floor? Not so much. She only scored 15, I don’t think her popular partner, Maks can even save her at this point. Tom Delay, who is playing the martyr by dancing on two fractured feet against doctors orders, only scored 15, but he’s going to rake in the pity vote.

Kelly Osbourne, who looked so promising her first week out, is being done in by her insecurities. Her score, 20, was better than last week, but I don’t think she’s going to find confidence in a few short weeks.

Live blog and Videos after the JUMP…

It’s Latin night on Dancing with the Stars! Watch the stars sizzle! Or not.

Oh, Tom Delay may not be able to dance tonight, because he’s got a full-on stress fracture.

Mark Decascos and Lacey Schwimmer ‘ Rumba – Lacey and Mark will perform a slow Rumba, but Mark can’t slow down! Hm. There’s something missing here, can’t put my finger on it. It was hard to keep my eyes off Lacey, who had some great moves. – Len says, “Grumpy’s back…that was a tad on the hard side, it lacked chemistry.” Bruno says, “It was an anti-climatic…too stacato. Carrie Ann says, “Your quality of movement…is there, but you lack connection…uncomforatable to watch.” ‘ Carrie Ann – 6, Len –6, Bruno – 6181-800-868-3403. – VIDEO

Joanna Kupra and Derek Hough ‘ Samba – Derek decides to throw some tough moves into their routine. Joanna doesn’t look very comfortable in those high, high heels. She’s got the steps down, but she’s not very sensual. And still…her hair…Scary! Bruno says, “The good times are back…work on your strength…very good.” Carrie Ann, “You’re fearless, I thought it was super-sexy.” Len says, “It has quality stamped all over it. ‘ Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 8, Bruno – 8 – 231-800-868-3415. – VIDEO

Mya and Dmitry Chaplin ‘ Rumba – Finally, some really sensual Latin dancing! The crowd loves it. Mya knows how to get into character. Carrie Ann says, “That was ridiculous, I had chills.” Len says, “Be still my beating heart, chemistry, romance…you need a little bit of simplicity…too many tricks.” Bruno stands up, “FABULOUS” Mya and Dmitry can’t seem to please Len! What’s his problem? I’m beginning to think Len is playing out a pre-fab story arc…hm. Carrie Ann – 10, Len – 7, Bruno – 10271-800-868-3411. – VIDEO

Melissa Joan Hart and Mark Ballas ‘ Samba – Poor Melissa. I think she really is doing her best, but she’s not a dancer. The latin dances are tough–to work, the dancer needs to let go of inhibitions. Len says, “Parts of that were excellent, you got to get more rhytm going on.” Bruno says, “I knew you could switch it on…you lost timing a couple of times.” Carrie Ann say, “I just don’t believe it when you dance…you have to let go of the fear.” – Carrie Ann – 6, Len 6, Bruno – 7191-800-868-3410. – VIDEO

Louie Vito and Chelsie Hightower ‘ Rumba – Chelsie admitted in an interview that she might have a little crush on Louis. Wouldn’t they make a cute couple? Louie brushed his hair back. I like it better in his face. Chelsie is doing all the heavy lifting, but who cares? Adorable! Crowd loves it. Bruno says, “That’s chemistry! That’s how to play a girl!” Carrie Ann says, “Your chemistry is unbelievable.” Len says, “I wanted to be nice, it was wild, no finesse, it became hectic, I was disappointed.” – Carrie Ann – 8, Len – 5, Bruno 7211-800-868-3406. – VIDEO

Debi Mazar and Maksim Chmerkovskiy ‘ Samba – Debi is motivated to NOT be in the bottom 2 this week. ‘ Something just flew off Debi’s head! I don’t know. Debi, the actress, is such a hot ticket. But she has none of that charisma on teh dance floor. Carrie Ann says, “It was a hair safe…when you turn, watch your expressions.” Len says, “What you did, you did well, but it didn’t ignite…it lacked the flavor.” Bruno says, “You went wrong twice…you got to work it.” – Carrie Ann – 6, Len – 5, Bruno 617. Debi is in trouble. – 1-800-868-3409. – VIDEO

Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson ‘ Rumba ‘ Sorry, but Donny effing Osmond attempting to be the sexy latin lover is cracking me up. Not buying it! The crowd is eating it up, however. Len says, “You should try to straighten your legs…you did a great job.” Bruno says, “It looked pretty.” OMG Donny ran over and kissed Bruno after the judge called his dance “Airy fairy.” “I don’t think they are going to let me back in Utah.” Carrie Ann says, “Very daring to do a solo…a little off in your musicality…there was a genuine vulnerability. Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 7, Bruno – 7 – 211-800-868-3405. – VIDEO

PAULA ABDUL IN THE HOUSE!!! Sitting with Lance Bass. Also in the audience: the gay guys from Modern Family. Tom did a little interview with Paula. She said she would spell Len’s name S-I-M-O-N. – VIDEO

Michael Irvin and Anna Demidova ‘ Samba – Is it just me? The dancers so far, with the exception of Mya have sucked. Michael’s Samba = Total fail. He minced around the dance floor, with a goofy grin on his face. I wouldn’t call it dancing. Bruno says, “No rhythm whatsoever…I don’t know what you were doing.” Carrie Ann says, “You are dancing too small.” Len says, “I’m afraid it was a bit disappointing.” – Carrie Ann –5, Len – 4, Bruno – 514. OUCH. – 1-800-868-3407. – VIDEO

Natalie Coughlin and Alec Mazo ‘ Rumba – Great Rumba! She said in her video that she was uncomfortable with playing sexy, but she brought it on the dance floor. Carrie Ann says, “It was dramatic, gorgeous, wonderful.” Len says, “Very expressive, good hips, chemistry.” Bruno says, “You’ve gone stratospheric, sexy beast, bring it on girl.” Carrie Ann – 9, Len – 8, Bruno – 9261-800-868-3413VIDEO

Chuck Liddell and Anna Trebunskaya ‘ Samba ‘ Chuck says last week’s Tango came naturally. Really? Holy shit the Desi Arnaz ruffles are a hoot. When is Chuck going home? He better not get overscored this week. He stinks. Len says, “You did a great job with Chuck…you thoroughly entertained me.” Bruno says, “It still is like a Samba from zombie time, but it’s a hit.” Carrie Ann says, “You’ve got the right attitude, it was a lot of fun.” That was not entertaining. Carrie Ann – 6, Len – 5, Bruno – 6171-800-868-3402VIDEO

Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff ‘ Rumba – He’s got something on his shirt during rehearsal that’s blurred out. What the hell is he wearing? It looks like a bathrobe. He tripped. Heh. Sorry, I hate this douchebag. Sorry Aaron, you aren’t going to win. Not if you keep dancing like that. Bruno says, “It lacked a little bit of fluidity for me.” Carrie Ann says, “You move beautifully, but you are over exaggerating everything.” Len says, “It lacked musicality…you’re just flinging your arms.” – Carrie Ann – 8, Len – 6, Bruno – 7 211-800’868-3401VIDEO

Tom Delay and Cheryl Burke ‘ Samba – Tom is being told to withdraw from the competition by the doctors–he’s got a stress fracture in both feet. But he’s refusing to withdraw. Can’t they force him to withdraw? Argh. The sooner he’s off my TV the better. Maybe he’ll suck so much tonight, he’ll get eliminated. He’s wearing a republican elephant on his fugly shirt. OMG. His pelvic thrusts are burning my retinas. I’m kidding myself. He’s going to get a pile of votes for his “bravery.” Carrie Ann says, “You are easy on the eyes when you dance…but it wasn’t as exciting as it could have been…I give you so much credit.” Len says, “Well done.” Bruno says, “You’re a super trouper…we have to judge based on what we see.” ‘ Carrie Ann – 6, Len – 4, Bruno – 5151-800-868-3408. – VIDEO

Kelly Osbourne and Louis Van Amstel ‘ Samba – Kelly screwed up last week, and now she’s lost her confidence. This is way better than last week. Kelly and Louis have some real chemistry. Not exactly sexy, but very engaging! Len says, “Your problem is confidence…I’m convinced you’re a good dance.” Bruno says, “Compared to last week, you’re back…just forget about doubt.” Carrie Ann says, “Stay focused, don’t doubt yourself.” Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 6, Bruno – 7201-800-868-3416. – VIDEO

  1. I am so irritated with Len!!! Mya and Dmitry were FANTASTIC!!

    On the other hand, skeezeball Derek can leave at any time and I would not shed a tear.

  2. I like Mark and Lacey, but I think Carrie Ann is right – he’s focusing SO much on the steps and making sure that he gets them down, that he’s not connecting with his partner or the audience. Hopefully if they make it through this week, Lacey can help bring that out of him.

    Joanna’s plan to “stand out” was to have scary bangs, I guess. Her hair was awful. And the Samba was technically fine, but lacking as much charisma as Mark and Lacey’s rumba was. I didn’t get the judges’ praise. I thought she was really stiff, and yeah, not that sexy.

    Now Mya and Dmitry – THAT was sexy. That’s one of the best rumba’s I’ve seen on this show, on par with Mel and Maks’ from a few seasons ago.

    LMAO, Louie tweeted earlier that Maks helped him do his hair. Hilarious.

  3. I’m not sure about MJH’s pink lipstick and orange fringe. Yikes. The dance was okay though.

    LOL at Chelsie – “we definitely have a lot of chemistry” about Louie. Especially since Aaron Carter likes her. Heh.

  4. I think Derek and Mark Ballas are both in for a rude awakening. Mark was really pissed during the scoring. Hey come on Mark its only for a mirror ball. Chelsie and Louie cute as heck. He’s way ahead of Ty Murry last year and look how far Ty went. Dimitry and Mya, were awsome, would so like to see a different pro win this year. I am not a Donny fan, but he’s still enjoyable, and it seems harder for him than I bet he thought. Wow, Len just gave a 4.

  5. Miss Chaos, I agree with you 100%. I also notice that Derek and Mark are not showcasing their partners, but rather are adding extra spice to THEIR performance.

    I have watched DWTS right from the beginning and this was something like a script written show. So unusual…

    Watching every season, I can now say I have never disliked a celebrity as much as I dislike Tom Delay.

    Mya and Dmitry are again my favorite couple. I just love watching them dance. He has a certain sexuality that makes me want to hug, hug, hug him!

  6. Len was pretty darn jerky tonight. I guess he wants to stand out. I gotta be honest — I’m not going to keep watching much longer with this much angst. The dancing isn’t good, but I think it’s because all the celebs are scared stiff. Literally, stiff. Kelly had promise, but she looks tentative and weak. Mark had promise, but he looks anxious and clunky. Joanna and Aaron have ego to spare and don’t give a flying feck, so they’re fine, and Mya is good enough to dance very prettily past the idiocy (even though Len is trying his damnedest to give her a complex, too) and Natalie seems to be keeping calm and staying under the radar, but everybody else with any possibility of doing well is shaking like a teacup poodle at the vet.

    So, anyway, terrified D-list celebs + smirking morons like Derek and Joanna whatsername make me run for the exits.

  7. Ok, how many things were just soo Twilight Zone tonight, Debi’s outfit, Bruno & Donny Osmond, Kelly’s dress to cover up her burns, Mya’s score from Len…??
    Anyway, so Paula skipped out on Simon’s 50th to do a scripted schtick on DWTS?? Hmmm, i would have rather heard from the actors of Modern Family. I flove that red-haired guy. Oh – and Paula, u can’t steal Kathy Griffin’s gay. Leave Lance alone!

    MJ- Aaron Carter, a d-bag? Lord, what did he do?? I think the wardrobe dept. is trying to screw him over with those outfits. Last weeks leprechaun explosion and now the shorty robe? Don’t the professionals sometimes draw/design the outfits for their star partners?

  8. Oh and I was going to comment on all the 80s ballads used but they sorta redeemed themselves with Jennifer Hudson’s “Spotlight.” At least with the choice, not necessarily the bland vocals.
    Yeah, I think Joanna and Derek will get a rude awakening, maybe not this week. But pretty soon they will have 3 WEEKS of double eliminations and I’m positive they will be up on the chopping block. Derek has always creeped me out, I don’t know what it is. I haven’t rooted for him since he had Jennie Garth as a partner.
    I don’t know why everyone is scared of Len so much. Ask the prof. to do more traditional choreo and then they’ll be on his good side again. He seemed to be more upset with Demetri than Mya. He put Lacey over the coals her 1st season, too.

  9. Three minutes of Pauler not being able to spit out what she’s trying to say and I’m suddenly completely reconciled to her not being on Idol ever again.

  10. Was it just me, or was that rumnba of Louie and Chelsie’s REALLY HOT?

    I started out thinking Louie was just adorable, but that was really sexy. If I was much younger and shorter I’d have to chase that guy.

    I kind of love his personality, too. He seems so easy-going and cheerful.

    I actually voted tonight. Go Louie and Chelsie!

  11. I had the biggest crush on Aaron when I was 12. ( 9 years ago) and I can’t stand him now. Yes, he’s a good dancer but he has an ego the size of an elephant. I agree with MJ he seems like a Douche.

  12. So mad that my local ABC station decided to preempt DWTS in favor of showing the Vikings/Packers game – as if ESPN broadcasting it wasn’t enough. They have however giving us the wonderful opportunity to watch DWTS from 1 – 3 am. :x

  13. I don’t remember Len being so hard on Dmitry when he had Holly Madison last season. I was very surprised that he gave Mya and Dmitry a 7 because the dance had too many tricks in it. What?

    I’m beginning to think Len is playing out a pre-fab story arc.

    MJ, I think you may just be right. Also, I see this as possible with Kelly. And what’s with Bruno and Donny? Insane. LOL!

    I am really excited about the introduction of four new dances this season! Whoo Hoo!

  14. I must say that Aaron does seem like a douche, but I dont know I like him, he’s trying and wanting to win aint such a bad thing, but did they run out of costumes and give Aaron a smokin jacket LOL, I couldnt believe that outfit, really cant believe it. As far as who is going home, who the heck knows. Poor Chuck was just awful, but he was trying. I bet Tom doesnt go, I kinda think Micheal, that was really bad.
    Whats with Mark Ballas hairdo, has he been watching the Glittery One?

  15. I really like Derek. He is a fantastic dancer, but I have to say my favorite is Alec Mazo. He is so tall dark and handsome. Just love the way he moves on the dance floor.

  16. I’m feeling bad for Cheryl Burke. She’s one of my favorites and she is with a very poor dancer. I hate when she is voted off.

  17. I actually voted tonight. Go Louie and Chelsie!

    That is totally what I thought. I’ve never voted in this show and I did tonight. I’m so voting for them every week because every week I think they are just so awesome.

    I hope it comes down to Louie and Mya. Mya should win because she is so good, but I just so like watching these two.

  18. Mya and Dmitry are really hot together. Thats two weeks in a row that they have had the best dance to me. I just love watching them. I hope Mya wins.

    I don’t remember Len being so hard on Dmitry when he had Holly Madison last season. I was very surprised that he gave Mya and Dmitry a 7 because the dance had too many tricks in it. What?

    Maybe he has something against Mya? I have no idea how he could rank Joanna/Derek above Mya/Dmitry. At least Bruno and Carrie Ann haven’t lost their senses about them where Mya is concerned. lol

  19. I just saw Louie and Chelsie on Youtube, He was much better than I thought he would be. He’s the little engine that could. :lol: I thought he looked nice with the slicked back hair. I was entertained even though he is technically lacking far behind Mya. I hope they keep it going for a long time.

  20. I noticed Mark’s hair do, too. LOL!

    I don’t think he’ll win, but Donny is entertaining. Since the gals have been winning, they may try to get a guy to win. I don’t know who that will be.

  21. My vote goes to Tom. Sorry MJ, but he reminds me of my dad. My dad is much cuter of course. lol

    Kelly is adorable though. I hope she makes it through.

    I didn’t vote for anyone however. I’m waiting until the competition narrows down.

  22. I really like Kelly so very much. She needs to sit down and watch ‘The Wizard of Oz’ a few times though, I think. Courage can be found in the most unlikely places. Perhaps her inner mantra should be ‘I Think I Can’ . Any port in a storm. And I do love the delicate way Louie is treating her. Outward shells can be deceiving. I suspect she’s actually a very fragile girl.

    I like Chelsea and the munchkin too. He’s been nick-named ‘Frodo’ in our house (affectionately, of course). The way he looks at her ‘“ as if she were an ice-cream cone he had a hankering for. She seems to like him too. Methinks there might be a romance brewing betwixt those two.

  23. I like Mya but I think I’m rooting more for Louie Vito, Kelly Osborne, and Natalie Coughlin. They came in as complete amateurs and they’ve been doing pretty good so far. I see a lot of potential and I bet in a few short weeks, they’re really going to shine!

  24. I think my favorite person on this show is Louis Van Amstel, so I guess I want Kelly to do well. I think she was underscored this week, I thought she did better than that. But I understand that this show is primarily about personality, so whatever. I really like Donny, what can I say. I really dislike the little snowboarder person, I don’t remember his name. I think that Debbie is probably a wonderful person but she does not look comfortable with what she is doing, and that’s the kiss of death. She may be the one to go this week.

  25. LOL at Chelsie ‘“ ‘we definitely have a lot of chemistry’  about Louie. Especially since Aaron Carter likes her. Heh.

    My son thinks that she might have been trying to gently let Aaron down because she had started to have this crush on Louie, :-) I agree with other posters who say they make for a cute couple. And after seeing how Aaron is, I prefer Chelsie with Louie.

    I just saw Louie and Chelsie on Youtube, He was much better than I thought he would be. He’s the little engine that could. I thought he looked nice with the slicked back hair. I was entertained even though he is technically lacking far behind Mya. I hope they keep it going for a long time.

    I, too, like his hair better in his face, although I would not stand it if one of my sons had it like that, lol.

    I like Mya but I think I’m rooting more for Louie Vito, Kelly Osborne, and Natalie Coughlin. They came in as complete amateurs and they’ve been doing pretty good so far. I see a lot of potential and I bet in a few short weeks, they’re really going to shine!

    Agreed, although I am so impressed with Mya, too. She and Louie, I believe, are my favorites at this time.

  26. Two comments to make:

    Love love Chelsie. She is the new Julianne Hough. I would vote just for her no matter who she is dancing with but Louis is a cutie.

    As I said last week, Mya is a professional dancer and it shows. I don’t think she should be in the competition and I am fast forwarding through all her dances.

  27. What’s with all the hate against Derek? He’s a terrific dancer and choreographer. I love to watch him. OTOH his friend, Mark, is driving me crazy — he’s so over the top.
    Love little Louie and Chelsie – they got all my votes.
    Maybe Len missing a week has caused him to have no “chemistry” (to coin a phrase) with these contestants. He does not seem to be able to cut them any slack. Or Len also may think Mya is too well trained as a dancer and he is going harder on her for it.

  28. I like Mya but I think I’m rooting more for Louie Vito, Kelly Osborne, and Natalie Coughlin. They came in as complete amateurs and they’ve been doing pretty good so far. I see a lot of potential and I bet in a few short weeks, they’re really going to shine!

    Me too, AC. I really like all 3 of them and hope they last.

    I thought Tom was more dumb than brave in dancing last night and just know he’s going to get a ton of sympathy votes. It’s annoying that he didn’t even get the lowest score. Len was on a tear last night and some of his scores were crazy. It was like he was trying to make up for not being there the week before.

    That whole Paula interview was cringe worthy. Was she trying to be Simon? Very strange.

  29. Len is nuts. I thought his scoring was bizarre last night.

    Here’s a radio interview with Tony Dovolani from last week (hope it hasn’t been posted yet). He dishes the dirt pretty well, lots of good stuff. Confirms that Aaron Carter is a douche.

    http://a1135.g.akamai.net/f/1135/18227/1h/cchannel.download.akamai.com/18227/podcast/TOLEDO-OH/WVKS-FM/Tony%20Dovolani.mp3

    (Sorry for the ugly link. If anyone would like to explain how to do a pretty one, I’d love to learn.)

  30. Or Len also may think Mya is too well trained as a dancer and he is going harder on her for it.

    Maybe, but Mya isn’t a trained ballroom dancer. Ballroom dancing is different, which is why people get so many injuries. Mya isn’t the only person on there with some sort of dancer experience. Len isn’t hawking on Aaron Carter, and he wasn’t as hard on past contestants that were recording artists.

  31. So mad that my local ABC station decided to preempt DWTS in favor of showing the Vikings/Packers game

    butte009

    What, not a Favre fan? Heh. Good thing MJ has all the video here, our vcr (yeah, welcome to the dark ages) completely screwed up DWTS. Thank you, MJ!

    I think Dmitry is so adorably hot. When he’s talking about their rumba being traditional, he sounds like dracula! Also love the chemistry between Louie and Chelsie.

    I can’t get into the whole Donny thing. He was so obnoxious when Marie was on there, and he takes himself way too seriously.

  32. I’ve been watching and I must say that Natalie Coughlin has such beautiful long lines and her smile is so endearing. I think Kelly has a nice fluidity as well as Aaron. Yea I know some think he’s a douche but there’s no denying he is technically strong. I think what might be offsetting right now is that he has hyper extension and has to soften his lines somewhat but like nor not, he is good. Louie is so sweet and is was on fire with Chelsie. It was a Hot performance and I thought Chelsie showcased Louie as Derek and Mark Ballas have been doing but the difference is that Chelsie and Louie have a connection which I did not see with Mya. I hope Chuck or Debi goes tonight.

  33. I have disliked Karina since the season she was paired with Mario. Aaron and she have similar attitudes and are a complete turnoff. He also looked ridiculous last night. It won’t happen soon but I’ll be much happier once they’re gone.

    Lots of people don’t like Tom Delay because of his politics, but as far as the dancing goes, imo he’s trying harder than Cloris Leachman did! He’s about on a par with Jerry Springer although I don’t think he’s doing himself any favors dancing injured. Wonder if people will think it is kinder not to vote for him?

    Kelly, Louie, Mya and Debi are about the only contestants I care about this year. Don’t enjoy watching most of the others at all.

  34. Mya is ok, not that great and I think the 7 was just right – dont really like her much. I am loving Chelsea, she is so fun to watch and Donny. Last week I liked Debi, was rooting for her but she has some kind of bug up her butt and a permanent scowl on her face, she acts like Maks has a disease and there seems to be no connection so I am really not into her anymore. I really liked Natalie last night though, strange night in the scoring department, that is for sure!

  35. Was it just me, or was that rumnba of Louie and Chelsie’s REALLY HOT?

    They were just freaking adorably hot.
    I ship them now, and certainly do hope something blossoms because their chemistry was palpable. He had the attitude down and is fast becoming my favorite.
    I split my votes between him and Kelly, neither of which can over take Mya’s talent or Donnie’s fanbase.

  36. Lots of people don’t like Tom Delay because of his politics, but as far as the dancing goes, imo he’s trying harder than Cloris Leachman did!

    Remember, he resigned under a huge scandal. So, IMHO his politics and his integrity are both questionable.

    I have to say his pelvic thrusts last night are something I did not need to see. I’m sorry I watched it

  37. I really liked Dimitry and Mya’s dancing but gave my vote to Natalie and Alex. She is so cute, blushing whenever he gets close to her. Little crush maybe? And is it just me or does anyone else think of OompaLoompas when Louie dances. Don’t get me wrong, I think he’s cute and is doing really well but there’s just something about him……..

  38. Huff Post is reporting that Delay is dropping out. Wonder how this will affect the results show. If someone else had a lower overall score, will they get the boot?

  39. Love Natalie – nice to see someone who doesn’t have any dancing in their background (at least I dont’ think she does) do well. Mya is overrated and that was a lift and she should have had points deducted from Ms. Picky on the judging panel. I would really like to see more people on this show that have no dancing at all in their background. Frankly none of them have me super excited yet. Kind of a blah bunch.

  40. I, too, like his hair better in his face, although I would not stand it if one of my sons had it like that, lol.

    Maybe it’s because my son’s hair is in his face that I like the slicked back look. :)

    I’d like to see him try a pony tail. :lol:

  41. I wonder if I’m the only Democrat who voted for DeLay just to force him to keep hopping around on broken feet. Bitter? Mmmmyep. Hey, they’ve had people on the show before who were hard to like if you knew anything about them, but none of them ever subverted the constitution.

    I know, I know, I’m trying to let it go… but it ain’t easy.

    I thought Joanna was going to be Mya’s chief competition, but I can see Louie and Natalie flying just far enough below the radar — in what I like to call the Shawn Zone — to sneak into the finals. Joanna seems to be going backward. Michael isn’t very good, but he’s better than Len’s scoring would indicate, and Chuck, well… every time he dances I hear Peter Boyle bellowing something that almost sounds like “puttin’ on the Riiiiiitz!” Melissa needs to go home soon, too. Poor thing. She hit her ceiling last week. That was it. No higher.

    Len’s either giving criminally low scores to provide a villain for the show (can they really think they need one when DeLay is in the cast?!), or he’s an old jerk who should head out to pasture and let the rest of us get on with this new fangled century and it’s fancy ways.

    Maybe, if they decide to get rid of that area of phony baloney content, they can get rid of the canned commentary at the end of the training montages, too.

    “If we’re going to beat some of these outstanding dancers, my Olympic archery champion partner is going to have to score a perfect bullseye with this traditional foxtrot.”

    Yeeeah, that’s how we all talk.
