It’s down to the final 5 tonight on Dancing With the Stars. The competition will be as fierce as ever tonight, as the couples will have to do an “Instant Dance”, a routine they will find out about at the last minute.
This should favor the best dancers, and those that were prepared best by their pro dancer teammate.
Two rounds tonight. A classic ballroom round, then the surprise dance. I don’t know if these teams are the best five teams, but they are surely the most popular.
Kyle and Lacey were first up with a waltz. Kyle has been working extremely hard to get to this point. I’m impressed with the fact that he is improving each and every week. The couple delivered a good waltz and Kyle keeps showing he is serious about this competition. They get a 27 out of 30. For their instant dance, they get ‘Good Golly, Miss Molly.”
Jennifer and Derek are up next. Jennifer’s body has taking a beating over the past number of weeks. She’s trying her best to stay positive and healthy as they move ahead. They performed a quickstep. Jennifer came through with a nice routine. They get a 27 as well. Their song will be Foreigner’s “Waiting For a Girl Like You.”
I’m always anxious to see Kurt and Anna. Kurt loves the competition and he loved to audible on the football field. I expect him to get through his instant dance tonight with ease. They too did a waltz as their ballroom dance. Kurt did a nice dance. Some technical problems, but he seems to love dancing. Kurt gets 24, and their music for the instant dance is “Hella Good.”
Bristol Palin and Mark have been working hard. The fans are really on Bristol’s side as she gets the lowest marks in competition, but keeps advancing. They get to do an Argentine tango this week. Even though Len said the dance lacked intensity, I beg to differ. I think Bristol showed her stuff this week. Intense, provocative, and naughty are a good description of her dance. She gets a 24. And her instant song is “Mas Que Nada.”
Brandy has owned the competition the last few weeks, can she keep it up? Brandy and Maks know that nobody is safe, they have to be their best each week. A nice slow waltz, quite a moving experience. Brandy and Maks get a 29. Their instant dance music selection is “Teenage Dream.”
Now on with the instant dances. The couples have only had about 30 minutes to prepare these routines.
Here’s Kyle and Lacey first. They kept up with the music and did a spirited routine. Kyle actually burned up the floor. Lots of tricks and fun moves here. Bruno thought it was entertaining and fun. They get a 29 out of 30.
Next on is Jennifer and Derek. They get to do the Rumba. This right up Derek’s alley. He’s the best at setting up these dances, and on short notice he will have Jennifer prepared. They dance to Foreigner, even though they never heard of them before. Figure that. Another great routine. The judges loved it. Jennifer gets a well deserved 30.
Kurt and Anna need a good score here. They dance the Cha-cha-cha. I don’t know if they matched up with the music as well as the previous teams. Kurt nailed his moves, and danced with confidence. They get a 24.
This is a big dance for Bristol. I think she needs to outscore Kurt to stay on the show. Bristol and Mark get to do a Samba. This is a tough dance to do without much practice. They get a 23.
Last tonight is Brandy and Maks. They will try and repeat their first dance of the evening. Not a perfect dance, but good. Carrie Ann didn’t like Maks’slow starting routine and they exchanged words. They get a 28. They tie for the lead tonight with a 57 total.
Now it’s up to the fan’s voting
