As a postcript to Monday, September 20th’s, 2010 “Dancing with the Stars” elimination round, David Hasselhoff was cut from the dancing competition on Tuesday, September 21st. I think the headline of the article I posted (prior to the actual results being announced) said it all. (see www.associatedcontent.com/article/5813450/the_hoff_dancing_to_sex_bomb_didnt.html).
The Tom Jones “Sex Bomb” song selected for David to gyrate to was just embarrassing. Yes, he’s a good-looking older guy, but both he and Florence Henderson seem to be trying too hard to be “hip” and “with-it.”
As David Hasselhoff was announced as the eliminated contestant, the Hoff declared (laughing) that he felt this might be some sort of “pay-back” for his stint as a judge on “America’s Got Talent.”
The performances by Santana, at one point accompanying Daughtry and at another, when playing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” accompanying guest vocalist India were quite entertaining, and the opening dance number by the pros was worth watching.
My favorite moment: when Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino announced to no one in particular that he didn’t even know there were roads from Alaska to Los Angeles. As the host said later, “We’re not just a dance show; we’re a geography lesson.”
It’s quite apparent who has the talent in this show. It’s hard to believe that weeks and weeks of votes are going to be required to select the “best” dancer. Of course, let’s not forget the year that Mario Lopez lost to a football player who was infinitely inferior in dancing ability, so “Let the best man (or woman) win” doesn’t always pan out on these competitions.
