Just as we suspected “The Situation” was sent home last week from “DWTS” after miserable performances from the beginning. Week 5 leaves us with the two weakest couples being Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya and Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas.
The two strongest couples going into week 5 are Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani and, of course, Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough. Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke and Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are also still going strong, while Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas are surviving on Florence Henderson’s popularity vote.
TV Theme Song Week on DWTS 11, episode 5.
Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy – dance the quick step
Brandy and Maks danced the quick step in high style to “I’ll be there for You,” theme song from “Friends.” Brandy has performed well consistently throughout the season, but she took her dancing to another level this week on “Dancing with the Stars,” season 11, week 5. She really seemed to embrace their song choice, which made the performance easier for Brandy.
You could tell by their expressions and through the dance that Brandy and Maksim both enjoyed the dance.
It’s nice to see that Brandy and Maks’ relationship seems to coalescing because they have had problems with conflict in past weeks.
Brandy and Maksim pulled 3 nines from the judges for an impressive 27.
Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas – dance the tango on “DWTS” 11, week 5
Was it really any surprise that Florence Henderson and Corky chose to dance to “The Brady Bunch” theme song? It was exciting for Florence to be able to dance to the theme song from her own wildly successful syndicated television show. The dance was well executed, but the head slinging was a little much and a little too sloppy. It ended up hurting their overall score.
Florence and Corky scored a 21.
Kurt Warner andAnna Trebunskaya – dance the quickstep
Kurt Warner improved his game for week 5 of “Dancing with the Stars” when he and Anna danced the quickstep to “The Theme from Bewitched.” It was by far Kurt Warner’s best performance to date. He was charming and moved well. It was a cute addition to use the classic twitching nose in their performance. It must have worked its magic on Kurt Warner because they did a great job.
I’m glad Kurt was able to get into the groove a little better this week because it may have saved him from elimination.
Kurt and Anna scoring a 24 on “Dancing with the Stars,” 11, episode 5.
Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani – dance the rumba
Audrina and Tony danced the rumba to “Unwritten” theme song from “The Hills.” They received a poor score and a lot of criticism from blogs and media outlets, but I thought their dance was fantastic. Maybe, the judges were a little harder on Audrina because of her stellar performances in previous weeks. The judges have been tough on Audrina for the past two weeks.
The truth is that Audrina Patridge looked lovely, danced well, and gave an overall outstanding performance.
It was disappointing when Audrina and Tony’s score dropped to a 23.
Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer – perform the foxtrot week 5 on “DWTS”
Kyle and Lacey tried to foxtrot their way through the theme song from “Charlie’s Angels.” This was a little more difficult of a performance for Kyle to pull off. Historically, he has been lauded for his performance even when the dance steps were difficult for him.
Kyle’s lack of maturity is destined to work against him at this stage of the competition. The dancers are required to move to a new level and while Kyle is always a good performer, he isn’t the best dancer.
The choreography and costumes were ridiculous, which aren’t Kyle’s fault, but it didn’t help matters. Kyle’s footwork was off. It was overall just a medium rate performance. Unfortunately, that will not cut it at this stage of the competition.
In one of their worst scores to date on season 11 of “Dancing with the Stars” Kyle and Lacey got a 20. That could mean bad news for the Disney star on the Tuesday night, week 5 “DWTS” results show.
Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke – dance the rumba
Rick and Cheryl danced the rumba to the theme from “Hill Street Blues.” Rick Fox looked hot in the uniform, but most importantly he danced with passion and finesse. His moves were much smoother. There were certainly no comparisons between Rick Fox and Megatron this week.
Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke scored a 24 on “DWTS,” season 11, week 5.
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas – try to dance the jive
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas danced the jive to the theme song from “The Monkeys.” Mark is doing everything he can to help Bristol in the performance part of her dance, but is is difficult for her. So, on week 5 Mark had them begin their dance in Monkey costumes, which required Bristol to bring the technique without worrying so much about the performance.
Unfortunately, the first part of the performance seemed to be out of sync. There were some great parts of the dance, but there were parts of the dance that fell apart when it came to technique.
Bristol and Mark scored an abysmal 18, which puts them in danger of going home following the “DWTS” results show on Tuesday night.
Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough – dance the foxtrot
Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough danced the foxtrot to “Love and Marriage,” the theme song from “Married with Children.” Their theme was cute and the dance was beautiful. Jennifer and Derek were in sync, despite Carrie Ann’s comments. They danced beautifully together.
Jennifer and Derek scored a 25, which put them in second place for the second week.
Prediction for “Dancing with the Stars,” season 11, episode 5 Results Show
The two couples who will find themselves on the chopping block of “DWTS” season 11, episode 5 results show will be Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer and Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas.
I anticipate Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas will be voted off the show on the results show. We’ll see Tuesday night on ABC at 9pm ET.
