This should be fun. The couples this week get to perform to TV theme songs. We all have out favorite TV themes, and we’ll be able to see how the pros choreograph these routines.
Last week everybody was a bit nervous with the new stage and the acoustic music, this week should be the exact opposite as it is about having fun this week and showing off your moves.
Last week we lost The Situation and his unconventional dancing. I think both The Sitch and Karina saw the writing on the wall and realized he wasn’t the level of the other competitors. This week Bristol, Brandy, and Florence will be on notice and they all need to give a strong performance.
Jennifer and Audrina have kind of separated themselves from the rest, so the pressure is on them as well to perform well each and every week.
The show tonight promises drama, magic, unpredictable behavior. We’ll see how they deliver on that.
It’s the first time they have ever tried a TV theme week, and Brandy and Maks will kick it off.
Brandy really needs to wow the judges at this point. They are dancing to the Friends them, a good song to get a good score on. They get to do a quickstep this week, and Maks is a good teacher of the quickstep. It was a great effort and a perfect way to start the show. The judges liked it and Brandy seemed pleased with her effort as well. The scores were all 9’s for 27 out of 30.
It’s no surprise Florence Henderson was going to dance to The Brady Bunch theme. Corky and Florence work well together. It’s a tough song to dance to, but it’s a timeless classic. Carrie Ann liked it, but Bruno thought it went off in the middle. Florence has some dancing talent and she was rewarded with a 21.
Kurt Warner is Bewitched, or at least he danced to the theme song. Kurt and Anna used the whole ballroom for their routine. Kurt was very light on his feet and made it look easy. A great performance earns Kurt and Anna a 24.
Next on is Kyle and Lacey. They are dancing to the theme from Charlie’s Angels. Their routine had a retro feel to it. A nice and interesting routine. Bruno called it a “disco foxtrot.” Len said it was bad and got worse. Mixed opinions. Kyle gets a 20.
Rick Fox and Cheryl next Rick improves a little each week, but he needs to turn it up a notch. Rick got some advice from Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson during the week. Rick was very smooth this week. Hill Street Blues suited Rick and Cheryl. Rick gets a 24.
The Hills’ star Audrina will dance to The Hill’s theme. She and Tony will dance a Rumba. To me the dance was a little slow and out of sorts. The judges, who know more than me liked it more than I did. Audrina receives a 23.
Bristol Palin and Mark need a big performance tonight. They dances to The Monkee’s theme. They actually started out in monkey costumes. It was a bit choppy, but fun. Carrie Ann actually like Bristol this week. Bristol get an 18 for her birthday.
Jennifer Grey closes out the show this week. She and Derek drew a foxtrot this week. Last week she received 10’s, that will be hard to repeat this week. Despite some issues during practice this week, the duo danced to “Love and Marriage.” It was good, but not as good as last week. They get a 25.
Results show tomorrow night.
