Dancing With the Stars -- Week Two!

Hey kids! It's time for the second week of Dancing With the Stars and we are already seeing the effects of an extra show on Len Goodman. He's not on the show tonight. Baz Luhrman is the guest judge. Their explanation of why Baz is relevant is too long and distracting.

Samantha Harris has the worst dress that she has ever worn on right now. UGH.

Joanna Krupa & Derek Hough is up first and they are doing the Jive. They have great chemistry and are hoping to have a blast out on the dance floor. Don't forget their scores were the best last week. She is wearing extensions that almost touch the floor. The dance is energetic and except for one second or so... I thought it was fun. The judges thought she was energetic but was missing a lot of good footwork. Their scores are 6, 7, 7 for a total of 20.

Natalie Coughlin & Alec Mazo is up second and the Queen of the Chlorine is dancing the Quickstep. For this dance, we learn that she can't breathe since it isn't natural to her in her real world job of swimming. Her dance was interesting and I am not sure. Bruno goes weird for a few minutes... MINUTES and haters will turn off the show. Carrie Ann thinks she is one of her favorite competitors. Lots of "potential" discussion... so it can't be great scores... Their scores are 7, 7, 7 for a total of 21.

Chuck Liddell & Anna Trebunskaya are up third and we haven't had a break yet. Chuck has to get in touch with his feminine side and he has been asked to dance the Tango. "The Tango is as close to his world as possible..." and something about it being down for the count. Oh boy. The dance starts and Chuck is incredibly rigid and creepy... but I don't know anything at all about this stuff. Baz gave a weird description of what he thought. Carrie Ann was scared, but loved it. Bruno complimented the work he put into it. Their scores are 6, 7, 6 for a total of 19.

Melissa Joan Hart & Mark Ballas are up fourth and my wife groans in ugh. They are dancing the Jive and it requires MJH to have more fun and be energetic. This could be a train wreck and the video shows a ton of mistakes. The dance itself is missing something and I think it is filled with tension and being silly and goofy just isn't in her nature. Any time she has to be excited... she opens up her mouth. They show her daughter who seems to do the same thing. The judges pointed out that her feet were a mess but her energy level was picked up. Their scores are 7, 6, 6 for a total of 19.

Michael Irvin & Anna Demidova are up fifth and they are reviewing how last week was an abomination in the video. They are dancing an awful lot... sunrise to sunset. There is lots and lots of drama in the music! Blech. The song starts and Tucker is not pleased. He is wondering how Michael Irvin was able to get out of his parole to be on the show. Good one Tucker. The judges were happy that he gave them content which didn't happen last week. They have improved. Their scores are 7, 7, 6 for a total of 20.

Debi Mazar & Maksim Chmerkovskiy are dancing the Tango tonight and during the video, Debi hates being talked to like she is an idiot... so lots of crying and drama ensues. I want to watch the dance, but OH MY GOD... they have murderered Roxanne by the Police for this dance. She was good. The judges agreed too, but thought she was slightly shaky. Their scores are 7, 7, 7 for a total of 21.

Louie Vito & Chelsie Hightower are up right before the halfway point. This couple is just too damn sweet. They are dancing the Jive and teh video was just plain adorable. I thoroughly enjoyed the dance. Carrie Ann likes the joy in his dancing. Bruno is tougher on him because he has the ability and can do more. ALmost seems unfair. Baz likes the "story" and has liked or disliked the story in every dance... boring. Their scores are 6, 7, 6 for a total of 19. I disagree with this scoring.

Aaron Carter & Karina Smirnoff are dancing eighth and we are reminded that he was the best male dancer last week. As soon as he starts to talk, I am reminded what I didn't like him at all. There is a TON of tension in their video and they are not the best of friends at all... but in the end... they love and adore each other. The dance is starting with band being hijacked by Animal from the Mutppets as they dance the Quick Step to the theme of the Muppet Show. Seemed good to me and I can't stand it. It ended with Gonzo with the judges playing his horn. That was cute. Bruno LOVED it. Baz loved it. Carrie Ann thought it was a pleasure. Their scores are 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27.

Kathy Ireland & Tony Dovolani and Kelly Osbourne & Louis Van Amstel and Mark Dacascos & Lacey Schwimmer dance and I wrote stuff, but they were all lost for some reason. Sorry... but Mark was the best of them all for sure. See scores below.

Mya & Dmitry Chaplin are up 12th. There is so funny business about their scores and the controversy last week and it seems like that was a very short video. They are dancing the Jive. It starts off with plenty of props and goofiness and then kicks into gear and it is a very good dance. The judges were in love with it. Their scores were 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27.

Tom Delay & Cheryl Burke are up second to last and I want to poke my ears out. Not at Tom, but at all the conservative and liberal comments by Tom... ick. We learn that Tom has a "pre-stress fracture" but the doctor says he can dance. This week? It's the Tango. The dance was going fantastically and then the end came and Tom looked like he seriously hurt himself and almost dropped Cheryl. Carrie Ann liked it. Bruno agrees. Baz loved the story. Their scores were 6, 6, 6, for a total of 18.

Donny Osmond & Kym Johnson are up last and they are going to dance the Jive. Donny... is in his 50s and maybe... he can go by the name Don now? He will be good and Kym has the worst hair ever and I thought Krupa's hair was horrible. Now... the dance. Donny was frigging amazing. Kym's choreography was spectacular. The judges scores are 8, 9, 8 for a total of 25. I totally disagree with that.
