With a UFC event scheduled for this weekend here in LA, Chuck Liddell got
knocked out early, and 10 couples survive to do a paso doble or an Argentine
tango, and later, a group hustle will be performed. Are the stars ready? Are
the pros ready? Let's freakin' get it on!
First off, Natalie & Alec doing a paso doble to "American Woman" by The Guess
Who. Natalie took a leg over Alec and responded with a fake kick. Natalie did
a slide-through later. On to the judges. Carrie Ann called a lift, Len said it
lacked a bit of aggression and Bruno said it was slightly wonderless. We wonder
if the scoreboard had numbers...
TOtal Score: 22
That's a good way to start out.
Ready to dance now is Aaron & Karina doing an Argentine tango. It was very
passionate from the way it started. On to the judges. Carrie Ann said it was
excellent, Len said it came back to daddy...really and Bruno said it pulled &
focused. Let's focus on the numbers, shall we?
Total Score: 24
ANd they take the top!
Michael & Anna will now paso doble. Michael did some cape
flirting and Anna
messed it up with a floor spin botch. Let's see if the judges saw that. Carrie
Ann said it was a favorite dance so far, Len said the posture was good and
Bruno said the recession is over. Now we got your scores.
Total Score: 21
they take up 3rd place.
Now here's Mya & Dmitry doing an Argentine tango to "Who Are They" by Jem.
Both danced in the band area, and on the floor, Mya did a 3/4 back split. Now
let's split with the judges. Carrie Ann loved the opening sequence, Len lied
it and Bruno said it was intricate like lace. Here come the numbers...
Total Score: 27
And they cataputl into the lead!
Mark & Lacey prepare to paso doble. Lacey came out of smoke and Mark did a
flip over. However, Lacey got a falldown. We fall in with the judges. Carrie
Ann said it's in his power, Len said it had posture & performance and Bruno
said it turned into a red devil. Let's turn the scoreboard on, devils!
Total Score: 26
They heat into 2nd place.
Due up is Donny & Kym doing an Argentine tango. They took it to Argentina with
that routine. On to the judges. Carrie Ann said the tango loves Donny, Len
said it loved the intensity of the dance and Bruno said it turned into Donnie
Darko. Let's glow in the dark with the numbers:
Total Score: 29
And the light up the leaderboard into 1st.
Next, Louie & Chelsie doing a paso doble. The routine was done mostly with a
chair. Now we sit with the judges. Carrie Ann said it was a little pedestrian,
Len said he was pleasantly surprised and Bruno said it had great storytelling.
Only the numbers tell the tale:
Total Score: 22
And they tie for 5th.
Melissa & Mark go up for an Argentine tango. One highlight you might see is
Melissa doing a foot drag. Here come the scores:
Total Score: 23
And we have a new 5th place finisher.
Up Next, Kelly & Louis doing a paso doble to "Crazy Train" done by what else?
His dad Ozzy. Did the scoreboard do her dad proud? Let's find out.
Total Score: 24
It's now a tie for 4th.
Last for the round, Joanna &....wait a sec, It's Maks taking over for Derek
who had the flu earlier this week. For that, they do a tango to "Whatever Lola
Wants." Joanna puts the jacket on Maks and did a footslide and drops him to
the floor. Let's drop in to the scoreboard:
Total Score: 24
Now it's a 3-way tie for 4th.
Before we get into the group dance, here's how the leaderboard stands:
Donny has the lead with 29, 27 goes to Mya, Mark has a 26, 3 24s go to Aaron,
Joanna and Kelly, Melissa has a 23, Natalie has 22 and Michael is in dead last
once again with 21. Now it's time for the group dance.
For this one, it's back to the 1970's. Guess who's teaching them how? It's
Corky Ballas who taught Cloris Leachman how to act funny. But it's not going
to be serious as we get it underway. They enter from behind the back entryway
and 1 couple did a flying move, 1 used her back as percussion, a female
partner from 1 couple doing a split and all ending simultaneously. Well,
that'll end a big night of dancing, and tomorrow, we'll have a tribute to
Michael Jackson. It's one you don't wanna miss. See you there.
