Little Bunny Foo Foo on a Bed of Roses
It may be complicated to have a reality
show, but Denise Richards is one of them. Sadly, she got ousted by
Holly Madison on the same network she works on. It's a bit ironic, but
we got a show to do. In the DTWS dictionary, we define 2 routines: The
Argentine Tango and the Lindy Hop. Let's write history as our show
Up first, David & Kym doing a lindy hop. David calls out Kym and she
jumps, then does a flip over. Another flip over by Kym was made and
pushed a sat-down David and wiggled through him. But she got a split
on David's legs. On to the judges. Carrie Ann said he kicked up the
energy, Len said it had fun & energy and Bruno said it lost a little
bit timing. The scoreboard just came in on time.
Total Score: 22
A good way to start.
We keep going as Lil' Kim & Derek do a tango. Lil' Kim did a leg turn
and did a slink down move. We go to the judges. Carrie Ann said her
like were sensuous and beautiful and Len said he was knocked out with
the choreography and Bruno said it was the tan of a fatal beauty. Get
the sunblock while we wipe out the scores:
Total Score: 27
And they're now in the lead!
Now Chuck & Julianne do a lindy hop to "Summertime Blues" by Eddie
Cochran. They did a arm wave go round and wave their wash rags. After
throwing them away, Julianne did a flip over and both did guitar
gestures. They did hand claps in front of the judges table and did
more work. To the judges. Carrie Ann said he wants to lose control
next time, Len said it was competent and Bruno said the style was
wonderful. On to the scores:
Total Score: 22
And they tie for 2nd place.
Next, Lawrence & Edyta doing a tango. Edyta did a foot slide and a
high lift move. The judges say.....Carrie Ann said it lacked a bit of
chemistry, Len said it was heavy and Bruno said it was menacing. But
is the scoreboard menacing? We'll see.
Total Score: 19
And they get 3rd place.
Ty & Chelsie get set to lindy hop to "You & Me & The bottle makes 3."
Ty pulls Chelsie out, but she leaps him to the floor. She also did a
flip over and a split and both fell down. We go on to the judges.
Carrie Ann said they make one incredible team, Len said it was a great
routine and Bruno said it was still rough around the edges. Let's
gather around the scoreboard:
Total Score: 25
And it'll be 2nd place for them.
Steve & Karina will be up next doing a tango. Both went around the
chair and Steve sat, but Karina did a cartwheel and lied on her back
and she did another flip over. We go to the judges. Carrie Ann said it
just felt okay, and Len said it did it for comedy. Is the scoreboard
laughing at them?
Total Score: 12
Another trip to the basement for them.
Melissa & Tony will now lindy hop. Melissa did a flip over & go
through and another flip she perfected. After a through & out slide,
they did 2 big moves right there. We get to the judges. Carrie Ann
said it delivered it beautifully, Len said it got potential and Bruno
said it had eye-popping bursting excitement. Let the numbers pop out
of the scoreboard...
Total Score: 29
And they're now in the lead!
Holly & Dmitry make a tango. Holly sat around in a bar chair and did a
leg turn on it. She also did an incredible leg in arm move and a
mid-air whirlwind move. We get to the judges again. Carrie Ann said it
did hung in there, Len said it got worse after a bad start and Bruno
said the routine was fantastic. Here's the numbers for you...
Total Score: 16
And they stay one position out of last.
Now Steve-O & Lacey will lindy hop. It was a very fun routine to look
at, but where the judges seeing anything wrong? Carrie Ann said they
were starting to let go, Len said it didn't quite go through the
routine and Bruno said it had more hopping all over the place. We
bounce to the scoreboard:
Total Score: 15
They stay out of last place by one spot.
Gilles & Cheryl get ready to tango. One highlight you might see is
both doing slower leg work. We speed up with the judges. Len said it
was another fantastic performance, Bruno said he's the quintessential
Latin lover and Carrie Ann....well, she blushed. Let's see is the
scoreboard can make any sense.
Total Score: 30
A perfect score to come out on top!
And Shawn & Mark will lindy hop to round it out. Shawn did some flips
and did a flip over. Mark jumped over Shawn and almost knocked her
with a leg. Another flip over by Shawn came and both ducked with high
leg sweeps. Shawn did a flip over and they bit a bit of tumbling with
Shawn kicking Mark in the behind. We get the judges last time. Carrie
Ann said it was heavy on the footwork, Len said it was too many tricks
and Bruno said she was really flying around. Let's land with this....
Total Score: 25
and what they get is 4th.
That's all the dancing we have. One last look at the scores before we
go. Gilles stands alone with 30, Melissa has 29, and rounding out the
top 3 is Lil' Kim with 27. A pair of 25s go to Shawn & Ty, 22s go to
David & Chuck, LT has a 19, Holly has 16, 15 belongs to Steve-O and
another tinfoil ball belongs to Steve with 12. But hey, 2 Steves can
be gone...or do they? The double elimination night happens tomorrow,
so be on time for night. Have yourselves a good night and I'll see you
on the results show.
