View Printable version of this article
Bruno gets tongue-tied. He eventually tells Helio that he did some difficult moves. Carrie Ann calls Helio the real deal. Len uses phrases such as “pit stop” and “overdrive.” Basically, he enjoyed the dance.
Oh, look, there are cavemen in the audience. Thanks, GEICO and ABC.
Drew talks to the couple backstage. If anything significant comes from his interviews, I’ll let you know.
The judges award Julianne & Helio with a nine. The couple has 27 points.
The next couple is Jennie & Derek. Derek explains that they are doing the quickstep. Jennie giggles over some of the positions she and Derek have to get into. He tells her to not think of him as a 22-year-old from Utah, but rather as George Clooney. She continues to giggle.
They’re performing to “Suddenly I See.” Jennie does a wonderful job, but she needs to keep her shoulders up and not be afraid to let go. She keeps up with Derek and is lighter on her feet than some of the other dancers. The two almost wipe out at the end as she tries to slide between his legs. Other than that error, the dance is well done. Jennie looks like she is going to cry. Poor thing.
Len tells Jennie to work on her posture, but encourages her on. Bruno says that Jennie has a lot of potential. Carrie Ann tells Jennie to be in the moment.
Once again, the judges give the couple three sevens for a total of 21 points. Everyone backstage is very supportive of Jennie.
The next dance is from Edyta & Cameron. Edyta tries to get Cameron to shake his shoulders. She also sports her leg warmers. Cameron swears a lot and then has a breakdown. Edyta tells him that whatever he does is good enough.
They’re doing the mambo to “Mas Que Nada.” I don’t know why Cameron was worried about his performance; the dance is hot and he does a fantastic job. He and Edyta show a lot of hip action. His posture is excellent and his moves are crisp.
Carrie Ann tells Cameron that he looks great. Hey now! She says that he hit some nice lines, but was off from the music. Len tells Cameron to shake and bake. Bruno explains that Cameron needs to relax.
The judges all give the couple a seven. Edyta & Cameron have 21 points.
The next dancing duo is Karina & Floyd. Floyd becomes frustrated during practice. Karina feels that he wants to do his best.
They perform to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours.” Floyd needs to work on his posture; he’s used to holding his body a certain way for boxing and it shows. On the other hand, his footwork is fantastic; he does a wonderful job of keeping in sync with Karina and the quickness of the dance doesn’t faze him. At the end of the dance, he puts Karina on the judges’ table.
Bruno says that Floyd is light on his feet, but that he has to work on his feet. Carrie Ann says that he improved since last week. Len agrees with the other judges.
I feel like I’m repeating myself; the judges give Floyd & Karina a seven for a total of 21 points.
Jane & Tony are up next. Jane practices her hip movements. Tony wants to turn her into a snake, so he brings in an actual snake for inspiration. Jane promises to rise to the occasion.
They’re dancing the mambo to “Cuban Pete.” Jane watches Tony too much, but I’m sure with time, she’ll become more confident. Her lines are beautiful and the couple performs some cute moves. Tony is a great choreographer and it shows in this routine.
Len says that the dance wasn’t raunchy enough. The crowd boos. Bruno calls the dance elegant; he wants Jane to get her fangs out instead. Carrie Ann disagrees and says that Jane was elegant and played to her strengths.
For the love of… the judges all give the performance a seven. Jane & Tony have 21 points.
The last couple of the evening is Sabrina & Mark. Sabrina thinks that the quickstep will be quick. Mark explains that Sabrina is used to dancing as an individual. She acknowledges that she has to work on her frame. They call each other “dude” a lot during practice.
They’re performing to “They’re Red Hot.” Sabrina’s footwork is once again spot-on. (I’ve always wanted to say that.) As she noted, her posture is a bit off, but with practice, she’ll improve. The dance is energetic and a great way to end the show.
Carrie Ann tells Sabrina that she didn’t miss a beat. Len says that Sabrina has great control. He then babbles on and Bruno interrupts him. Len tells Bruno not to be a smart-ass. Bruno calls the dance blistering and in command.
Carrie Ann and Bruno give the couple a nine; Len gives it an eight. Sabrina & Mark have 26 points.
Tom and Drew recap the performances and the standings.
I’m predicting that Kym & Mark and Cheryl & Wayne will be in the final two with Kym & Mark being eliminated. Do you agree with me or does Yoko have a better chance of guessing the outcome? Tune in tomorrow to find out.
