Carrie Ann gives the dance a goober, but it turns out she meant to give it a nine; Len gives it an eight; Bruno gives it a goober. Later on, Carrie Ann’s score is changed to a goober because apparently that’s what she wanted to give the dance. Huh? Julianne and Apolo have 28 points.
Cheryl and Ian are ready with their second dance of the night. They’re dancing the rumba to “Imagine.” Ian generally stands in one place and doesn’t really move from it. Cheryl’s moves are fantastic, but Ian lacks passion. He needs to loosen up.
Carrie Ann says that Ian tried, but it didn’t all come together. Len calls Ian’s hip action great. He also says that Ian thinks too much. Bruno tells Ian that he was in business. I once was in San Antonio, but that’s a different story.
Carrie Ann and Len give the performance an eight; Bruno gives it a nine. Cheryl and Ian have 25 points. After both rounds, they have 47 points.
Up next are Kym and Joey. They are performing the mambo to “Pump it.” Again, the song distracts me, but in this instance, the dancing brings me back. The routine is energetic, sexy, and fun. What more can I say? That was great!
Len, who apparently fell asleep, comments on the amount of time Kym and Joey spent between each other’s legs. Yikes. Bruno says that the dance provided a good time. Carrie Ann wonders if the win is in the bag for Kym and Joey.
Carrie Ann and Bruno award the dance with a goober; Len gives it a nine. Kym and Joey have 29 points for this dance and a total of 55 points.
Performing next are Karina and Billy Ray. They are dancing to “My Way.” Billy Ray doesn’t do too badly… for Billy Ray. It has taken me all season, but I finally realize that he is a relaxed and casual dancer. In other words, he’d be fine dancing at a country bar, but not on a ballroom dance floor.
Bruno calls Billy Ray a wild beast that can’t be tamed. Carrie Ann says that Billy Ray makes people think they can dance, too. Len says that one of Billy Ray’s dances tonight had content and the other one didn’t.
Backstage, Billy Ray says that it’s hard to do well when people are rude with their comments. Karina agrees and wonders what you are supposed to do with “crap” as your critique. Samantha cuts them off, of course, to get the scores.
Carrie Ann gives the dance a six while Len and Bruno give it a snotty seven. Karina and Billy Ray have 20 points for the Latin round and a 38 overall.
Laila and Maksim are ready with their second performance. They’re dancing the jive to “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown.” Laila starts off a bit rough, but eventually finds her groove. She appears to have fun the entire time and keeps up her energy.
Carrie Ann tells Laila to watch her arms. Len scolds Maksim for his choreography; he wants more dancing. Bruno goes on and on about an appetizer. It seems that the judges were pleased with Laila’s dancing, but not Maksim’s choreography.
Carrie Ann and Bruno give the dance an eight; Len gives it a nine. Laila and Maksim have 26 points; for the evening, they have 53 total points.
The last dance of the evening is from Julianne and Apolo. They are dancing the paso doble to an instrumental piece that sounds like “My Darling Clementine.” At the start of the dance, Julianne and Apolo do a tricky move involving a split; unfortunately, it doesn’t go as planned. It doesn’t matter, though, because the rest of the dance is passionate and crisp. Apolo’s moves are superb.
Len says that the dance had everything it should have had. Bruno says that Apolo is in it to win it. Carrie Ann comments on her chills.
All three of the judges give the couple a goober; Julianne and Apolo have 30 points. Overall, they have 58 points out of 60. That’s impressive!
Tom and Samantha review the current standings and remind us that the semi-finals are next week. I’m throwing my standings in for your reading entertainment. Keep in mind that my rankings are based on how much I enjoyed the routines… pure and simple.
Will Karina and Billy Ray be put out of their misery tomorrow, or is there an upset in the making? I can’t guarantee immortality and world domination, but I’m sure we’ll have a good time. Join me then!
