Oops, You Broke a Headlight - April 3

It's about to get interesting as Dancing With The Starstakes our 10 couples to master the tango and the jive. Shandi came close last week to being eliminated when Paulina & Alec got out. The dance is now on!

Shandi & Brian will jive first to "Crocodile Rock" by Elton John. Both did a few solos at the start before both did arm moves, and maybe more. Now we get first glance at our judges. Carrie Ann said she's more impressed, Len said it was a great performance and Bruno said she's a bouncing, battling babe. Here comes the numbers:

CARRIE ANN: 7
LEN: 7
BRUNO: 7
Total Score: 21

Very Good start.

Next up is John & Edyta. It took one kick to survive last week, but they'll kickstart it into high gear as they tango. Edyta tossed her hat and took off her jacket along with a circle kick, a back kick, a leg hold & drag and a fall away move. How did that go? Carrie Ann said it had a decent frame, Len said it got quite into character and Bruno said it was a mafioso tango. Let's shoot down the scoreboard:

CARRIE ANN: 7
LEN: 6
BRUNO: 7
Total Score: 20

2nd place, but 1 away from tying it up.

Looks like Clyde & Elena are up to play. Clyde's mom came to visit for help and now we'll see if it pays off as they jive to "Bad Moon Rising" by CCR. Both did kicks and Elena took part off her dress off. She also did a slide-through & reverse to end it. Now the judges. Carrie Ann said he wants to see him bust out another time, Len said it gone to a u-turn and Bruno said it was a bit fuzzy & blurred around the edges. Let's take the corner to scoreboard land.

CARRIE ANN: 16
LEN: 5
BRUNO: 5
Total Score: 16

Way down in the cellar.

Now up, Laila & Maks. With last week's mambo getting an encore, let's see if a tango to "Goldfinger" by Shirley Bassey could do it again. It was all tango along with a head-to-head move by both. The judges say.....Carrie Ann said it broke a rule, but she's still fabulous, Len said it had a very busy time, and Bruno said it started especially on hold. Hang on while we get the numbers:

CARRIE ANN: 7
LEN: 7
BRUNO: 7
Total Score: 21

And they tie for 1st.

And up next is Apolo & Julianne. He learned speedskating to her. How Nice. As they jive, both re-enacted a scene from Pulp Fiction, and both did a roping gesture and Julianne did a Spirograph move before they flashed V signs at the end. Will it be victory come finals time? Carrie Ann said it was a little sloppy, Len said he dances what he doesn't do, and Bruno said it was a ride in Disneyland. Strap in and kick back to watch the numbers fly:

CARRIE ANN: 7
LEN: 8
BRUNO: 8
Total Score: 23

And they have the lead.

We're halfway through and Joey & Kym are up. They'll now tango to Star Wars by Meco. Joey played around with a light saber and put it away. Kym did some leg work and both got some kicks. Joey even took his light saber to dance. Now let's cue the lights on the judges. Carrie Ann said it was well-rehearsed, Len said it was good, and Bruno said he does a great Obi-Wan. Here comes the numbers now:

CARRIE ANN: 8
LEN: 8
BRUNO: 8
Total Score: 24

And they take the top spot.

Now Ian & Cheryl are up, we skip the chippendales part of the practice video to watch them Jive to "Hard-Headed Woman" by Elvis Presley. Tan jumped off at the start and did some gyrations himself before a camera problem happened. oops! Now we go to the judges. Carrie Ann said it was a 9 until the end, Len said it was a bitter pill to swallow, and Bruno said it turned into a hot rod. Here comes the leaderboard:

CARRIE ANN: 8
LEN: 8
BRUNO: 8
Total Score: 24

And it's a 2-way share for 1st.

Leeza & Tony are ready to tango now to "Jealousy." Leeza did a kick, a leg hold, some back kicks by both and a big dip by Leeza to end it. How did that go? Carrie Ann said it brought it to the floor, Len said it was an eyeball pleaser and Bruno said the Lady of the night never hurts. Word. Looking at the scores....

CARRIE ANN: 8
LEN: 8
BRUNO: 8

It's a 3-way for 1st now.

It's time for Heather & Jonathan to jive to "Can I Get A Witness" by Marvin Gaye. Both did twist & swim gestures and Heather did a flip over. She also did kicks and a back dip to end it. Now the judges say. Carrie Ann said it blew her mind, Len said she has great musicality and Bruno said it's taken off. BTW, she wore sneakers instead of high-heels tonight. How nice. Here's the numbers:

CARRIE ANN: 8
LEN: 8
BRUNO: 8
Total Score: 24

I can't believe it's now a 4-way tie for 1st.

Billy Ray & Karina are last up. They'll tango to "Rock The Casbah" by The Clash. Billy Ray hung out at the judges table and Karina did 2 kicks. She also did a leg move, a push away and a slide-through by Billy Ray. I have never seen this. Now the judges. Carrie Ann said he's still the most improved, Len said he looks as if he's trying to do it and Bruno said it's like a bingo caller. Last call for numbers:

CARRIE ANN: 7
LEN: 7
BRUNO: 7
Total Score: 21

It's a 3-way tie for 3rd place.

Let's take a pit stop, but just for tonight. Here's how it shaping up:

24 -- Joey & Kym, Ian & Cheryl, Leeza & Tony, Heather & Jonathan
23 -- Apolo & Julianne
21 -- Shandi & Brian, Laila & Maks, Billy Ray & Karina
20 -- John & Edyta
16 -- Clyde & Elena


It's time to park this thing, but until 23 hours from now, we'll rev up again with a results show so big, well, it's big. Good night.
