Surviving a Lethal Lottery
Tom DeLay gave up and Debi Mazar went out.
I know it's a bad day for them, but we got lots of dancing to get to.
Tonight, 4 new dances make their debut. They are in no particular
order: Charleston, lambada, 2-step and bolero. We'll see how
interesting it becomes as our show starts.
Up first, Chuck & Anna doing a 2-step. And no, this isn't the dance
associated with hip-hop, it's associated with country. The song is
"Boot Scootin' Boogie" by Brooks & Dunn, and that did fit the theme.
Here are the numbers:
Total Score: 17
Not a great start to the program.
Next up is Melissa & Mark doing a Charleston. It's a dance associated
with the 1920's. When they did do it, this was what supoosed to be
done. Here come the scores:
Total Score: 28
And they jump into the lead!
We have Natalie & Alec up next doing a bolero. A Latin dance that is
done in slow motion. Or what you call John Morrison. Anyways, the song
is "Better In Time" by Leona Lewis and this is why you call it slow
motion....not lack thereof. Let's speed it up with the scores...
Total Score: 24
And they get 2nd place.
Next will be Aaron & Karina doing the forbidden dance otherwise known
as the lambada to "Dr. Beat" by Gloria Estefan. This is why it was so
risqué....or not. To your scores:
Total Score: 18
And they stay one spot out of last!
Now up is Mark & Lacey doing a 2-Step to "Nothing Better to Do" by
Leann Rimes. It made something out of nothing. At least. Our scores
Total Score: 22
And they soar into 3rd place.
Next will be Kelly & Louis doing a Charleston to "Cabaret" by Liza
Minelli. Louis grabs Kelly from the crowd and both danced with canes.
They danced in unison also and Kelly did a driving split to the floor.
Now we split ahead with the judges. Carrie Ann said it was just
wonderful, Len said it came out with confidence and Bruno loved
putting a few things. Let's put the numbers up:
Total Score: 23
And they take away 3rd place quickly.
Joanna & Derek go up to lambada. Derek took his shirt off during the
intros and Joanna popped up behind the judges table. Both did arm work
all throughout the number and Joanna did a 5-straight scoop move
towards the end. Now we get the judges scoop. Carrie Ann said it was
fueled by crotch, Len said it did feel a bit repetitive and Bruno said
it burst with sexual energy. No sleep on the scoreboard...
Total Score: 26
And they take away 2nd place.
Donny & Kym will be next to do a Charleston to "Put A Lid on It" by
the Squirrel Nut Zippers. They did a bit of a quickstep, and Kym did a
flip over. Kym got the empty glass at the end. And the judges
say....Carrie Ann said they moved in synch together, Len said it did
them good and Bruno said they liked the theatrical touch. Here's the
Total Score: 24
It's now a tie for 3rd place.
We got Michael & Anna doing a bolero to "One day I'll fly away" by
Randy Crawford. It put a new meaning to slow stuff. Now to the judges.
Carrie Ann said it saw the romance, Len said it needs control, and
Bruno said it danced a bit like the economy. And the scores say:
Total Score: 16
Louie & Chelsie 2-step to "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Chelsie started things off with a floor spin and and mostly, they did
arm work. On to the judges. Carrie Ann said it didn't feel the music,
Len said it didn't have enough and Bruno said it was slightly dazed &
confused. It will be after the numbers...
Total Score: 16
And they tie for last place.
And finally, Mya & Dmitry doing a lambada to "Ain't it Funny" by J-Lo.
Both did arm work, but Mya killed it with a floor spin. Let's spin
with the judges. Carrie Ann said Mya is on fire, Len said it set her
standards and Bruno said it was a raunchy exotic rolelr coaster. And
the scores are:
Total Score: 28
And they tie for the lead!
And it looks like the ride's over. The final tally: Melissa & Mya tie
for the top with 28, Joanna gets 2nd with 26, 24s go to Donny &
Natalie, Kelly has 23, Mark with 22, Aaron with 18, Chuck gets a 17
and both Michael & Louie go dead last with 16. So what we learned what
4 dances all in one show, but tomorrow, one is gone. The results show
will be revealed. See you then.
