Dancing With the Stars Week 8ish...
It's Week Something Or Other and I am starting to feel tired for the stars this year. I am not feeling strongly (positively) about any of them... but I am actively rooting against a couple of them in my mind and in my catty little bitchy words on this blog.
When we see Edyta walk down the stairs... she is covered and this reminds us that their partners are dressing them this week.
Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani danced first and I lost all of my comments for her due to some sort of glitch in the program. BLECH. I am most annoyed that they keep referring to her as "The Bachelor Star." Didn't she lose? Seriously? She lost. THerefore... she is a loser and not the star. Screw her and her non-star status. After her lovely dance (Tango) though, she gets great marks from the judges... The scores are 10, 9, 10 for a total of 29.
Lawrence Taylor & Edyta Sliwinska dance second and they dance the Waltz. I lost my original free flowing thoughts on him too... but needless to say, their dance is somewhat nice, but he messes up a bunch. The highlight of the dance is that they danced to a Journey song that Jarold Wheeler and his crap singers somehow did not destroy. The judges were honest with him. The scores are 7, 7, 7 for a total of 21.
Lil Kim & Derek Hough dances third and instead of writing about this little turd, I re-wrote my comments for the first two. They danced the Rumba and thankfully... the judges didn't like her as much as they liked her in the past. Their scores are 9, 8, 9 for a total of 26.
Tom and Samantha keep reminding us that there is a GROUP DANCE later and it is a tribute to the 60s.
We are also reminded that there is a new feature this week on the Results Show. America will get to choose who will be the new professional dancer this week. DRAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chuck Wicks & Julianne Hough dance the Hump Dance. They are dancing the Samba this week. In the video montage... Chuck all of a sudden starts talking about the fans. His concert in the middle of a field reveals that he has a total of about 55 fans! I hope they all vote! The Samba is a dance I hate. It's just not interesting. However, with Julianne as his partner and he seems to have listened to her this week... it seems really good to me. Len loved it and thought it was his best dance to date. Bruno loved it and Carrie did a standing dance cheer for him. That's nice... since he really did seem to want it. The scores are 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27.
Ty Murray & Chelsie Hightower dances fifth and we are reminded that he sucked last week in his Jive. He is doing the Waltz and he likes going back to Ballroom dances since he likes to "hold on"... As they practice... Jewel comes into practice to help make fun of him to loosen things up. I don't know what is going on in the dance. It seems good and awkward at the same time. This is why I am in my sweatpants in my house and not a judge on the show. Bruno loved it. So did the other two critics. The scores are 8, 8, 8 for a total of 24.
Shawn Johnson & Mark Ballas will be dancing the Cha Cha Cha... and I HATE the hair and make up she is wearing this week. I should leave a 17 year old alone, but I know I can be critical because it isn't her fault. It's some dopey professional who is taking advantage of her hair. Shawn is away all week and has limited amount of time to do anything... let alone learn two dances. They are dancing in Michael Jackson-esque moves as the band absolutely BUTCHERS PYT by Michael Jackson. Carrie Ann loved it. So do the other two. Samantha reminds us that they have never gotten a 10! The scores are 9, 9, 10 for a total of 28.
Gilles Marini & Cheryl Burke wasn't in first place last week! THE HORROR! How can someone so handsome be so boring? They play in the pool a bunch and then come out and dance a Waltz to the Pretenders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I love the Pretenders... and the singer screws up a bunch of notes. It was a nice dance. End of story. The judges were mostly positive. The scores are 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27.
Video montage! and... it's a tribute to the 1960s!!!!!! (*yawn*)
I am not going to write anything about the group dance.. because I will have a lot to absorb.
Ty isn't the best... I learned.
LT makes me nervous...
Chuck was fine...
Shawn was cute..
Melissa missed soemthing...
Lil Kim was out there...
Gilles was right on...
