So it is week two of Dancing With the Stars and show night. The stars all came out with some….interesting costumes. Is it character night or what? Will the dancers live up to the hype built up by last week and the first elimination? They certainly might…Kristin Cavallari looks like Marilyn Monroe…can’t wait to see what her dance is like. And Hope Solo needs a pair of bigger pants to cover herself…but she’s up first, so we can see what she can do.
Hope and Maks try the jive. It looks OK at points, but their outfits are distracting. I think the judges will rip them apart. They did…she wasn’t accurate and they caught her on it. She needs to control her steps and take time to practice, which she admitted was lacking because of her soccer schedule this week. They ended up with 19.
Ta da! Kristin is dancing to Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend, so that’s what’s up with the Marilyn get up. Can her quickstep look good? It did. The judges say they were bedazzled in a good way. They gave Mark and Kristin props, but said they need to make sure they use control at the end, even when they are excited. Their score was 22.
David Arquette is up next and he showed a lot of energy. The judges critiqued him and Kym a little bit harshly, but they still ended up with 18 for a score, which isn’t terrible. Elisabetta and Val argued all week in their practice and it showed a bit in their dance. She looked a little stiff. His tux started to fall off. Their footwork looked good though…what were their scores? The judges say they were better than last week and they ended up with a 21.
Rob and Cheryl came out and did a jive and it looked OK. They had energy and some colorful costumes. He smiled and looked good in that regard…what will the judges think? They think he was much more confident and it showed. Rob and Cheryl also got a 21.
Carson and Anna came out with some colorful duds on too and looked OK. Carson admitted he needed to learn how to dance because personality wasn’t going to get him through it. Not as rave reviews as last week, but they were given an 18.
Ricki and Derek are practicing and there is a lot of tension. When she tells him there is no way she can do something, it looks bad. Can she? They come out and do their jive and look pretty good. Seems like she can do it after all. The judges loved it too. How high will their score be? 23
Chaz is up next with his aging body. Lacey and Chaz show up and look nice while they are out on the dance floor. Can they live up to last week’s rave reviews? Not so much. They were good but they were stiff in a few places. The scores ended up at 17.
Chynna and Tony are up next and tied for first place with JR. Will they be able to keep it up this week? Their jive was fast paced and cute looking. Looked like their feet were in pretty good tandem too. Ricki and Derek might have some competition! But the judges said they weren’t as exuberant as last week…the leaders might be tumbling. Chynna and Tony had a 21.
Nancy and Tristan are up and they need to wow the judges a bit more or they could be in jeopardy of going home. They were in the bottom two last week, so they have to bring their A game or it might be bye bye. Do they do it? A little bit better. Carrie Ann says they make an incredible team and it looks a lot better. They scored a 21.
JR is up with Karina and they shared the leaderboard with Chynna. Will they slip too and Ricki jump on top? JR and Karina nailed it and looked awesome with lots of energy with their dance. They probably will be alone on the leaderboard tonight. Oh…but the judges didn’t appreciate Karina’s choreography of it. Maybe there will be a complete overhaul of the leaderboard. Their score? 22.
We have a new leader, but the scores are pretty close. Ricki had a 23, there were 2 stars with 22’s and then 4 with 21s.
