Five couples left and we’re heading to the finish line. For you non-watchers, I know that’s good news!
Was anyone else baffled by the “pick a song” from the mirror ball as if they were randomly selecting one of five songs? Oh, the suspense. But wait, their names were printed on the CD they picked. Either they were all amazing pickers or just one envelope was in the mirror ball.
Just a bit of weirdness I observed. Let’s rethink how to reveal the “surprise” song – they aren’t randomly picking. The producers assigned the song and revealed it to each couple after their first dance.
My frivolous comments in dance order…
Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer – Their waltz was so good. He’s the underdog and has really shown how hard he’s been working. I hope they make it through.
Dance #2– In their jive, he just moved into the top three in my book. What an entertainer and I think he deserves to be in the top in all categories…no dance background, not an athlete – you can’t help have a big smile while you watch him.
Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough – Jennifer is a mess. Her injuries overshadow her hard work. I know it’s rough but even PhilBillPaul is now commenting that he doesn’t want to hear about it. I tried to defend her reminding him she is 50. He said “She’s not mountain climbing.” I said “I think this might be harder than mountain climbing.” Just sayin’
Dance #2 – Anybody who can do the splits at age 50 gets a special award. Holy cow! She’s still in it to win it!
Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya – Who wouldn’t want to be his dance partner. And dance to The Eagles. As Carrie Ann said “I want him to be my Ken doll.” Yes, I agree. (What the heck was with the 8’s after all the praise? The judges are really bugging me now.)
Dance #2 – WHY are the judges so complimentary and then continue to give them 8’s??? They looked great and deserved 9’s for sure!
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas – CAN. NOT. BELIEVE. she has made it this far. Sorry, I just think she’s been clunky and awkward and she hasn’t turned me into a fan the way Kyle has. Watching Mark’s hand go up her dress for a butt caress made me uncomfortable so I’m really not sure how her dad and younger sisters felt watching in the audience.* ICKY. Active teen or teen activist.
Dance #2 – I miss Florence and she wants her spot back. Len & Bruno gave them 8’s for that?? This show is rigged.
Brandy & Maks Chmerkovskiy – Beautiful dance. It’s no secret how much I like to look at Maks. What I don’t want to look at, discuss or know about is Maks’ underwear. I will say no more. (But I bet my friend Junebug noticed the same thing we did.)
Dance #2 – I was relieved to see Maks back in black pants. I loved the tension between Carrie Ann and Maks. Oh wait, what about Brandy? She is a great dancer but her background lends itself to these performances which gives her an unfair advantage.
My personal favs are still:
- Jennifer & Derek
- Kurt & Anna
- Kyle & Lacey
