Double elimination this week. I fear I will be unhappy twice this week
Me too. I'll make sure to get my phone votes in though. But my computer is way to slow and frustrating to deal with online voting. And I'm probably the only person in the world who does not have a cell phone to text.
I don't text either! (But I do vote via landline sometimes.)
Looking forward to tonight. Does anyone know the theme (if any)?
Each couple was supposed to pick an iconic dance from a past season (although it wasn't clear to me if they had to be one they danced previously or if they could pick from any dance that's ever been on the show) and to spruce it up and make it better.
Opening starts with couples coming down the different staircases... I don't know, I much prefer them all coming down the big center one. I can't believe I'm nitpicking something like that. Oof.
And.. nice lingerie, Peta. Based on that "costume" they doing one of Edyta's dances..?
Fail on the camera work during Drew's number. He was doing some big move and they totally missed it.
Poor Nick - he doesn't even rank a front row seat.
ETA: Oh Bristol. The best thing you had going for you was that you treated Mark well and didn't act like a diva. Looks like you're going to blow that.
Really enjoyed Drew & Anna, I thought it was their best program yet. Anna was spectacular, loved the hair.
Drew & Anna chose to replicate Joey McIntyre & Ashly DelGrosso's Cha Cha.
Scores: 8, 8, 8
What's this..."drama" between Bristol and Mark?
I agree with Gilles about the imitating iconic dance routine bit.
Oh Gilles, please don't leave my tv (although placement in the first part of the show isn't a good sign).
Oh... Gilles and Peta did not do it for me. Too dark (why hide that man!) and didn't really get the harness flying thing. Gilles also need to do something better with his mouth than grimace.
AYIIIII - cold water shower now!
How is that decided?
Gilles & Peta have picked Erin Andrews & Maks' tango. The singers attempt harmony. Notice I said 'attempt.'
Scores: 8.5, 8.5, 8.5
I don't know, but I think it's the producers based on the "flow" of the show.
Melissa just made me miss JR.
Melissa & Tony have chosen JR & Karina's samba. SAMBA ROLLS! What a great dance, I enjoyed that immensely.
Scores: 9, 9, 9
Those scores were better than they deserved.
i love apolo but i dont feel any chemistry, not even friendly platonic chemistry betw them
Love me some Apolo. Carrie Ann looked a little zoned out.
Apolo & Karina have picked Gilles & Cheryl's foxtrot.
Scores: 9, 8, 8.5
I must have missed what the judges saw in kelly
Kelly & Val have elected to replicate Laila Ali & Maks' paso doble.
Scores: 9, 9, 9
It's cute to see Kelly's tv Mom there cheering each week as if she were her real Mom
i think her natural stiffness worked in some parts of the dance
LOL! I actually loved it along with the dress she was wearing - just gorgeous.
I thought Kelly and Val were fabulous.
Well, he was fabulous, I'm not sure if my eyes wandered in her direction at all.
this. occasionally she blocked my view of him so i can't say i never saw her once, i just never chose to look at her given a choice.
That was strange from Max and Kristie. But the singers made it awful...
Paula Abdul will be guest-judging next week!
Kirstie & Maks have picked Carson Kressley & Anna's cha cha. Oh. My. God.
Scores: 8, 8, 8
