Out of This World, Out
of the Ballroom - January 27
It was a night to remember. It was the highs & lows of
a mad hot ballroom, and in an hour from now, one
couple will kiss their championship dreams goodbye.
We start off with the highlights of what happened.
Drew & Cheryl thrilled the crowd with their Paso Doble
"Thriller," and Drew said it was the best paso doble
he could do. Stacy put the "fox" in foxtrot, she says,
with her best foxtrot that came up short of 1st place.
Lisa's paso doble was dead-on, but she says she wants
to be the idols someday, meanwhile Jerry was back in
full swing with his fox trot, and scored a touchdown
after fumbling with his jive last week. However, the
judges were mortifying the dance of death, thanks to
P.'s poor paso doble. Highlights are over, but who got
the encore? It was Drew & Cheryl. They copied the paso
doble from last night, and had nothing to do with the
results show. Over at the locker room, they show
quickie highlights starting with Tia & Max. Tia said
she zigged what she's supposed to zag, and we get a
replay on what happened. Stacy & Tony are up with a
highlight, and Stacy said she was stressing out so
bad. Finally, Lisa & Louis' highlight. Lisa said it
wasn't the best routine she's ever performed, but will
she bring out her best next time?
Oh look, The Pussycat Dolls are here to perform "Don't
'Cha." Much credit goes to the lead singer for getting
to the soprano at the break. The song went from
original and sped up to remix getting near the end.
Back to the locker room for more highlight shorties,
starting with George & Edyta's Paso Doble. Then came
P. & Ashly's paso doble, and in his best Tony Montana
impression, P. said he was out there dancing doing the
best he could do. Lastly, Jerry & Anna with the
foxtrot, and Jerry said it was fun, but George gave
him butt pants. (ooh!) Up next, a segment on rituals
before the routines, like Jerry laying out clothes on
him, Max claming they don't each each other, (hmm...)
Tia going to her trailer, and breaks out into humming
or singing, (I was hoping it's not "Halo.") Lisa doing
yoga on her iPod, (interesting choice) George doing
meditation, (Ok) and P. telling us to pray and thank
God. (Amen to that!) Wish "The Insider" would've seen
Did the rituals pay off? In random order, we reveal
the 1st 2 couples to stay safe, starting with...Drew &
Cheryl!, and then came...Lisa & Louis! We'll have more
couples to reveal later on in the show. Who took out
their best routines on the judges? Well, Carrie Ann
said it was Lisa & Louis, Len said it was Jerry &
Anna, and Bruno said it was Drew & Cheryl. Now, we get
a Latin dance from Rodrigo & Ysemia. Ysemia took the
credit by doing 1/4 turns, 1/2 dips and a whirlybird
The Pussycat Dolls are back out on stage doing "Sway."
And it features Anna & Jonathan doing some moves. Anna
gets the credit by doing a split, and got more later
on by doing solo moves and a dip to end the song.
Going back to the locker room, George said he feels
pretty good all week, and P. Miller said he loves
America and the people. Meanwhile, we get a segment on
scoring the routines. Carrie Ann looks for emotion,
Bruno scores on performance and Len going for
technique. What they look for in a routine are 3
things: The arms, feet and the x-factor. Bruno said
the scoring system goes from 1 to 10, with 1 being the
"living dead" and 10 being "Hotness." Carrie Ann said
she needs to be honest with them to lift people up,
and Bruno said she's not there to punish anybody. But
who's punishment is getting eliminated? Let's
Going back to random order...3rd up to dance next
week...Stacy & Tony!...and then 4th, it's...Jerry &
Anna!...also up 5th...George & Edyta!...so it comes
down to Tia or P. Who'll survive and who won't? The
4th couple knocked out of the floor
P. & Ashly. Tia & Max
remain safe for the week. But wait, there's a
interview, starting with a video tribute. P. says it's
been fun and it was a great experience. He also says
he's never done this before, but did it for his
injured son, Lil' Romeo. Next up, another monatge of
P. saying the word "hood." (Weird, huh?) Ashly said
she wants to go out and accomplish something, and
finally, a video montage on their friendship, which
right now becomes a make up to break up. And over at
the locker room, Tia said she's not afraid of being in
the bottom 2 twice.
It's the last dance for P. & Ashly as they dance to
Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust." P. was the last
one standing, but got snakebit thanks to Tia's
foxtrot. Next week, who else will get snakebit, and
we'll see the 6 couples dancing a samba, and doing a
group Viennese Waltz. Until then, I'm Pierre Kelly
saying dots & power pellets, I'm out.
Ballroom dancing gets a fierce forum as six of
the medium's best meet up with six celebrities... and YOU'RE
the ultimate judge!
