All of the competing stars will be dancing tonight, despite injuries…
Denise and Maksim – Samba – Maks says Denise has to get out of her head and enjoy the dance, so to entertain her, he dresses up as Carmen Miranda. Uhhh. I’m having fun watching Maks, Denise, as she minces around the stage–not so much. Len says, “The Samba is the hardest…I thought you coped with the routine very well.” Bruno says, “That was so flat…more a waffle than a Samba…nothing worked for you tonight.” Carrie Ann said, “We can tell that you’re frightened…work on your hands.” Carrie Ann – 5 Bruno – 5 Len – 6 Total – 16 – 1-800-868-3412
Video and recap after the JUMP…
Chuck and Julianne – Foxtrot – Chuck, decides to take the judges criticism constructively. Chuck is doing a little more work this week, he actually looks very elegant this week. Bruno says, “Glad to see you driving.” Carrie Ann says, “Someone is showing us he could possibly be a contender.” Len says, “Your hold, posture was good…straighten your knees…not great yet.”Carrie Ann – 8, Len – 7 Bruno – 8 – Total – 23 – 1-800-868-3406.
Holly and Dmitry – Samba – “I don’t understand!” says Holly. Lolz. What’s with these fake orange tans? And no, your being half naked does NOT distract from the fact that you suck, Holly. The stripper moves are not working! Carrie Ann says “That was kind of rough to watch…totally disjointed…you’re still being dragged around by Dmitry.” “Hot on the top wooden on the bottom, ” says Len. Bruno says, “The feet were not going the right way…but there’s plenty to look at.” Carrie Ann – 5 Len -6 Bruno 6 – Total – 17 1-800-868-3407. Dmitry really does miss Jewel!
Steve-O and Lacey – Foxtrot – Steve-O is really ready to step it up. Steve doesn’t want to rest he wants to DANCE!!! OMG his footwork is hilarious as in it’s totally terrible. Why is everyone cheering? Because he can stand upright this week? He totally screwed up the end, too. Len gives Steve-O an ovation and a “well done” Hm. Bruno said, “You started well and then it fell to pieces.” Carrie Ann says, “You really impressed me, you continue to learn from your mistakes.” They’re totally giving him a pass. He’s not going to get voted off this week. Carrie Ann – 5, Len – 5, Bruno – 5 Total – 15 1-800-868-3404
Lawrence and Edyta – Samba – Lawrence–I thought that was just a’ight… Bruno says, “You’re pretty light on your feet, and you have rhythm…have more fun with it.” Carrie Ann says, “I say next time, go for something more difficult…” Len says, “I admire that you work hard.” Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 6, Bruno – 7 – Total – 20 1-800-868-3403.
Shawn and Mark – Foxtrot – Shawn’s friends are like OMG U r sew GUd! “There’s nothing smooth and elegant about Shawn Johnson!” Shawn talks in the third person! Shawn is doing a very nice job. She’s so precise–a perfectionist. Maybe a little too rehearsed and perfect. Carrie Ann, “I have not seen people glide on the floor like that…it was great.” Len says, “That was your best dance so far.” Bruno, “Such weightless quality…” Carrie Ann – 9, Len – 9, Bruno – 9 Total – 27 – 1-800-868-3409.
Gilles and Cheryl – Samba – Mama comes to visit Gilles from France. Go Gilles! He knows how to move, for sure. Very sexy! The crowd goes wild. Len says, “You’re a really good dancer, you just made a hard dance look easy.” “You came out here like a throbbing red hot poker, ” says Bruno. Well! Carrie Ann says, “Cheryl was working it for you!” Carrie Ann – 9, Len – 9, Bruno – 9 – Total – 27 – 1-800-868-3405
David and Kym – Foxtrot – David is working his booty off! They’re busting out! Well, that wasn’t bad. Much better than last week. Bruno says, “You’ve taken the Foxtrot to Broadway…well done.” Carrie Ann says, “Two thumbs up! That was nice.” Len says, “Best dance you’ve done.” Carrie Ann – 8, Len – 8, Bruno – 8 Total – 24 – 1-800-868-3411
Steve and Karina – Samba – Steve is gonna get loose and bouncy. I don’t think I want to see that. Oops, his left leg hurts, and Steve is off to the hospital. He’s pulled a hamstring, and doesn’t get to rehearsal until Saturday. This is pretty ridiculous. Props to Steve for having a very high tolerance for embarrassment. Wow, the worm thrown into the Samba! Carrie Ann, “You are so cute and so adorable…but the novelty wears off.” Ya think? Len says, “The dances are killing YOU. It was terrible from start to finish.” Bruno says, “This was the worst Samba I’ve ever seen…just bad.” Carrie Ann – 4, Len – 3, Bruno – 3 – Total – 10 – 1-800-868-3410
Melissa and Tony – Foxtrot – Wait…Melissa had a job? Like a real job? She goes back to say “goodbye” to them, because now she’s a professional reality show whore! She is very good. I expect she’ll go very far. But she’s had ballet training and was a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader, so…Len says, “Great musicality, dance expression…over all it’s fantastic.” Len says, “Beautiful to look at, easy to love.” Carrie Ann says, “I love watching you finesse through your movements…but you need to challenge yourself a little more.” Carrie Ann – 9, Len- 9, Bruno – 9 – Total – 27 – 1-800-868-3413.
Lil’ Kim and Derek – Samba – Party with Lil Kim! Actually, the little jailbird is pretty good. She’s comfortable and uninhibited on the dance floor. Maybe not as precise as some of the others, but she’s fun to watch. Bruno says, “You are pocket sized venus…it wasn’t perfect, but you sold it to me.” Carrie Ann says, “That was hot…you just draw us in.” Len says, “Slip in some of the more fundamentals steps…make an old judge happy.” . Carrie Ann – 8 Len – 8, Bruno 9 Total – 25 1-800-868-3401.
Ty and Chelsie – Foxtrot – Ty puts on his cool face. That ram-rod straight posture that worked for the quickstep is a little awkward here, plus he’s made a few mistakes. Nice save when Chelsie fell. He’s trying, though. Jewel, in the audience, looks pleased. Carrie Ann says, “You are most improved by miles…really smooth.” Len says, “It’s stiff, it lacks musicality…but I thought it was fantastic…top notch.” Len says, “You did a great job…amazing improvement.” Carrie Ann – 8, Len – 8, Bruno – 8 – Total – 23 – 1-800-868-3408
