Last night’s Dancing with the Stars results show wasn’t exactly a nail-biter, but it wasn’t clear who would wind up coming out a finalist. The final four contestants are all solid contenders at this point.
To kick things off, Cheryl Burke and William Levy are chosen to do their dance again. It was hot and spicy and energetic again.
We find out right away that Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas are headed to the finals. I’m surprised by it since their second performance on Monday night was just so-so, but the fans must’ve furiously dialed in. CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR THE REST OF THE RESULTS!
As the couples make their way down the stairs, it looked like Derek almost slipped. Is it wrong to admit that it would’ve been the most exciting thing to happen all season? Although, there’s that whole rumored sex tape of William’s.
William and Cheryl are up first with a tango set to Sweet Dreams. I secretly wish they would’ve used Marilyn Manson’s version to shake things up. I’m sure it wouldn’t make for a good tango, but still would’ve been entertaining. Len says he hasn’t been this excited since his mum put him in long trousers. Bruno nearly jumps over the judge’s table giving his feedback, as he always does. Carrie Ann says that their lines were gorgeous, but gives criticism and the audience boos.
We’re 3 seconds in and I need to call in Kim Zolciak for a wig intervention on Brooke Burke. That was the most unnatural hair piece ever shown on national television. And that includes The Donald.
Right away we find out that Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd are safe and moving on to the semi-finals. Those Packer fans are not to be underestimated, thankfully.
Since we’re down to just a handful of couples, they find even more fillers for this week. They create a “Dance Center” segment that just fell flat, unless you enjoyed that bit with Len, jogging shirtless and oiling himself up. I may need therapy. And in another “ABC family show moment”, we’re shown a montage of Katherine Jenkins talking about her naughty bits and an edited clip of her shaking boobs over and over and over and..you get the idea.
A few of the hour’s highlights: after receiving a perfect score of 30, Derek Hough and Maria Menounos were asked to give an encore performance, eliminated contestant Gavin DeGraw sang one of his new songs, and a dance troupe gave an energetic and inspiring performance.
It was Classical Night on this week’s Dancing with the Stars and it brought with it a strange mix of performances.
Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas chose the rumba. I think Mark doing the dance shirtless just felt a little tacky. It didn’t fit with the theme of the night, nor their music piece. Bruno’s goes a little over-the-top with his innuendos, as always. Carrie Ann Inaba says Katherine’s dance had beautiful lines but not enough chemistry and heat.
Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced the Argentine tango. Maks is powering through with a foot issue, while his brother Val is on standby just in case he can’t make it. Maks does make it to performance night, but the judges aren’t very impressed with this week’s attempt. Bruno said they looked like they were riding the Cyclone at Coney Island. Carrie Ann says it was like Cirque du Soleil went horribly wrong. They wind up with the lowest score of the night – 21.
Fans have often wondered why none of their beloved Housewives have been given a shot at the mirrorball trophy (and let’s face it, they looooove shiny things!). Radar Online did some digging and came up with a source who shared that the ladies just aren’t famous enough for the show and the fact that they work for a “rival” network. (ABC vs. NBC-owned Bravo)
After performances by Natasha Bedingfield and the Macy’s Stars of Dance, we have Boys II Men on the stage. Sometimes I’m a little confused about the purpose of these results shows. They just don’t have much to do with the DWTS, in my humble opinion. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the extra dances and musical guests, maybe I just don’t have the patience for it when I’m waiting for them to get on with the eliminations?
The “Bottom Two” couples become Gladys and Tristan vs. Roshon and Chelsie, who must dance in front of the judges in a dance duel. The couples dance the jive for this one and they both did a great job, but the judges have to pick only one. Carrie Ann and Len praised them both for their efforts. Len tells Gladys again that she dances with her heart, just like she sings. Bruno tells her it’s been an honor to have her on the show.
When it’s all over, Bruno and Len choose to save Roshon and Chelsie, which means Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus are eliminated. Gladys has had low numbers all along, but I was secretly hoping she’d turn it around and stay longer.
