The Bangles opened it up with a bunch of old favorites! Nothing like opening up a dancing show with Walk Like an Egyptian and did I say, 80s night?? What kind of songs will we hear tonight? But wow. What is Hope wearing? I think she has ten yards of fabric with a leather/vinyl looking get up. Yowza…how can she move with it?
Luckily we don’t have to wait long, because Hope and Maks are up first with a Bon Jovi tune. And guess what? The dress gets ripped off to reveal a lace coverup that shows off her stomach…but still weird. Len looks like he is going to blast them on something. Yup, he says Hope was too willowy in her moves. The other two thought she was fine…but then they got a score of 24, so it couldn’t have been that bad!
Anna and Carson are up and this should be entertaining! Guess what song they do? Wham! Right…Carson is gay and he picks a gay singer. Then they pull off their jumpsuits and reveal cheerleader outfits…? Really? Carson and pom poms? They got stuck in their costumes and it threw Carson all off…he is probably gonna get nailed for his technique again. Bruno told him he was loopier than a Looney Tune. Crowning achievement in madness. Ouch. Their score was 19.
Up next is Nancy and Tristan. Nancy has long and curly hair? When I got past that, her dancing seemed more fluid. Will the judges like it better? Probably not, it seemed awkward at the end. Carrie Ann says she wants to see real passion…which it did lack. But Len complimented them and the scores ended up being a 22.
JR and Karina are dancing to Miami Sound Machine. Conga baby! They look hot together and the dance even better. Carrie Ann said they were amazing! And the rest of the judges seemed to agree and there wasn’t much more to say. The audience ovation might have said it all. Their score? 28!
Rob and Cheryl need to be sexy to Lionel Richie’s Hello. Can he pull it off, when he said he doesn’t feel sexy towards her, but like a sister? It appears he might have…the dance looks pretty good! The judges liked it a lot too. They said Rob is stepping out and using Cheryl as a partner instead of hiding behind her. What is their score? 25! They have their highest score of the season so far.
Up next – Chaz and Lacey dancing to a funky Kool & the Gang song. Mohawk and all. Chaz really seems to know how to move this week. He can shake it! The judges are going to love it if they can keep this pace up. And they do. Carrie Ann said it was the most dancing he’s done. They are going to get a good score. They get a 21 for their efforts.
David and Kym get to put their 80s moves on. What song do they get? Tainted Love. David seems to be improving still too. This week they are all doing great…OK, Carson didn’t. David and Kym look to have an interesting twist on the Tango, but will the judges like it? Len liked the choreography and said he had shown up for the second half and most competitive part of the show. Carrie Ann said he is improving over the weeks. They must have really thought he improved because they get a 25!
Last up – Ricki and Derek. Can they deal with the pressure of being on the top for the last two weeks? They dance to Easy Lover, but the dress seems to overshadow Ricki. It doesn’t show any of her leg moves…there is so much fabric. I think they might be tumbling down behind JR….the judges seem mixed. Bruno knocked them for their Roger Rabbit move in the song. Carrie Ann agreed, but then thought they still danced great as a team. Len didn’t like the moves in the Fox Trot. Their score is a 24, so it wasn’t that bad. They aren’t at the bottom, that’s for sure!
Elimination is tomorrow – who is it going to be?
