8: What We Look X Years Younger
It's becoming more tougher with 5 couples in the
running for the championship come 2 weeks away. They'll do 2 objectives in one
big examination. Get set for some real action. Week 8 of season X. It begins
We kick off the first half with Chad & Cheryl doing a tango to "Sweet Dreams" by
Beyonce. From there it was a proper tango including this move at the end. Now ot
the judges. Carrie Ann said his posture was funky....really...Len needed a bit
more polish and Bruno says it has to be slicker. Let's get the scores faster!
Round 1 Score: 21
Next is Niecy & Louis doing a vienesse waltz to "I Got You babe" by Sonny & Cher.
One highlight you might see is Niecy doing a floor sweep. Now let's clean up
with the judges. Carrie Ann said it was a bit of too much push & pull, Len said
he's pleasantry surprised and Bruno said it had great movement. Moving to the
Round 1 Score: 23
Next is Erin & Maksim doing an Argentine Tango. Erin got up from the chair and
took Maks' hat off. It was followed by a foot drag. She also did a leap onto an
upside down hang before doing a foot sweep. Now we go to the judges. Carrie Ann
said she's comitted to the character, Len loved it and Bruno said she's like a
fire hydrant. Let's squirt off the numberboard....
Round 1 Score: 28
We got Evan & Anna doing a waltz to "Open Arms" by Journey. Both start out lying
down on the floor and did a rollaround. Anna did some twirls and a floor spin.
Now let's spin over to the judges. Carrie Ann said the movements were there, Len
didnt like the roly poly stuff and Bruno said it just was the romance of this
dance. On to the scoreboard....
Round 1 Score: 27
And to end the half, Nicole & Derek doing a foxtrot to "Haven't met You Yet" by
Michael Buble. Both were reading from a newspaper on a park bench and threw it
away for dancing. Nicole did a "sweating" gesture and Derek fake cooled it off.
They both ended the same way the started it. Now let's finish it with the
judges. Carrie Ann said she went in a different direction, Len said it turned it
into an enchanting love story and Bruno said it was 1:30 of pure dancing joy.
Now the scoreboard in 10 seconds....
Round 1 Score: 29
So after 1 round, Nicole's in the lead with 29, but Chad has got to play some
catchup. The second half will change all that. Let's go.
ANd by go, I say we go back in time to decades past and present. We start out in
the 60's with Chad & Cheryl doing a jive to "Love man" by Otis Redding. Cheryl
ripped Chad's shirt off and did a one-arm pushup....that wasn't. Huh? Nearing
the end, Cheryl did a split and now we trip over to the judges. Carrie Ann said
the energy was a little wild, Len said it was fun and Bruno said he pimped tehat
jive. Over to the scores....
Round 2 Score: 24
Overall Score: 45
Next is Niecy & Louis going towards the 90's with a paso doble to "Rhythm is A
dancer" by Snap! Both took the entrance via audience door and they felt the
spirit of Gen-X. yeah. I'm feeling that. We go to the judges. Carrie Ann gave
her a lot of credit, Len said it wasn't good enough and Bruno said she threw
herself like an avalance. Throw in the numbers!
Round 2 Score: 20
Overall Score: 43
We go back 1 decade off with Erin & Maks doing an 80's rumba to "Missing You" by
John Waite. Maks threw his jacket off and there was a lot of dancing in it. We
go to the judges. Carrie Ann said she moved beautifully, Len said it was jerky
and Bruno said it had a Madonna feel to it. Now the numbers with a Square one TV
feel to it.
Round 2 Score: 25
Overall Score: 53
Next, we head into the future with Evan & Anna doing a cha-cha to "BulletProof"
by La Roux. Through the magic of television, they appear and they did a yo-yo
like move. Evan did another move and did a leg hurdle over Anna. They ended to
the startign position. Let's go back to 2010 with the judges. Carrie Ann said it
was perfectly lucky, Len said it lacked any rhythm and Bruno said it couldn't be
more futuristic. Could it?
Round 2 Score: 26
Overall Score: 53
We go back to the 50s as Nicole & Derek close it out with a paso doble to
"Spanish Guitar" by Bo Diddley. Derek did a split and from there it took it to
anotehr level. Now we go to the judges. Carrie Ann said it was brilliant, Len
said it was nothing to critize and Bruno said it was full of color. Let's finish
Round 2 Score: 30
Overall Score: 59
That's all the dancing we could afford for you in 2 solid hours. Here's what the
final tally gave:
Nicoel is on top with 59, 53s go to Evan & Erin, Chad gets a 45 and Niecy's last
with 43. What a whirlwind of performances, but 1 couple;s time is expired. Tune
in to the results show tomorrow and you'll see how it goes. Later.
