    Apparently there's no theme, but a double elimination tomorrow and, in addition to their 'regular dance', a trio dance:

    Hmmmmmmmmm.................:slinkaway

    We're back to the hideous singers and music, Donald's Tango was pretty good, I find his turning awkward. It's not all 10s, which he wants.

    Good Viennese Waltz from Maria, not sure if there was a lift, one part was jerky.

    :( I missed Dance Center.

    I thought this was a great dance from Maria and it didn't scream "look at Derek"! I did wonder if it took too long to actually get into hold and waltz. I suppose Len agrees with me.

    I knew Len would not appreciate this one. Maybe it is my intense dislike for Derek, but I was underwhelmed. Felt like the first section took way too long.

    Good Lord, Melissa Gilbert is starting to look like Steven Tyler in the closeups.

    Waltzing, oops, foxtrotting to "Maggie May?" Rod Stewart would be horrified to see this dance.

    Cute idea for a Foxtrot for Melissa, I think it's the best she's done, although it's not 10s.

    Maggie May? Who picks some of these songs?

    Not that it was sung or sounded good, but wasn't Maggie May older?

    Gorgeous Viennese Waltz from Katherine, if it's not all 10s it's something technical I don't know.

    Max showed his ugly temper again, and Melissa defending him didn't help, IMO.

    Good foxtrot from William, he really didn't let if fly. Carrie Ann is ridiculous.

    Scores: 10 10 10

    (high for what he did, IMO)

    I haven't liked William too much the last few weeks, but I enjoyed him tonight. Roshon and Chelsie were adorable.

    Not sure that deserved a 30 though.

    This trio thing worked out better than I thought, especially with the Jive. Donald should score high.

    LOVED Donald's threesome jive! I think Peta chose very well in Karina.

    what the heck was that? Maria and Derek's trio didn't work for me.

    Bollywood number fun, but not much samba happening there

    Maria's trio was awesome -- for a Bollywood number. I had absolutely no idea what style of dance they were supposed to be doing, I couldn't figure it out (I missed the intro so I didn't hear what they were dancing)

    The Bollywood "samba" was super enjoyable to watch but I agree with Len, it was't a samba. Derek might have been better off using the concept for a freestyle

    Is it just me or is Donald consistently underscored?? Don't really understand compared to some of the other dances.

    I'm betting Len will prefer Melissa's trio Samba to Maria's.

    Totally agree about Donald being underscored.

    Melissa dances so much better will Val, she looks like a totally different woman who's not being dragged around.

    Best dance for Melissa so far (that may have just been because of Max and Val, but I'm fine with that).

    This. She's much more relaxed.
