The next couple in the spotlight is Karina & Floyd. Floyd says that there is no dance he can’t do. Karina says that he’s excited about the jive.
They are performing to “Mess Around.” Floyd is energetic, but he needs to watch his lines and be lighter on his feet. He and Karina do a movement that involves thrusting their pelvises into each other. I think it’s time for Yoko to go to bed.
Len tells Floyd that he can dance the dance, but he should stop practicing in sneakers. Carrie Ann wants Floyd to work on the structure of future dances. Bruno says that Floyd should polish his technique.
Carrie Ann, Len, and Bruno give the dance a seven. Karina & Floyd have 21 points.
The next dance is from Jane & Tony. Jane talks about her mother’s death. She says that she’s channeling everything she has into her dance tonight. She and Tony dedicate their performance to her mom.
They are doing the tango to another song that I don’t recognize. I really wish ABC would post the names of the music ahead of time. In any case, you can see the emotion in Jane’s face. Her movements are smooth and in sync with Tony’s.
Bruno gives his condolences to Jane and says that her performance was wonderful. Len says that her dance could have been on pay-per-view (referring to Floyd’s upcoming fight, which is on pay-per-view). Carrie Ann becomes emotional and says that every moment of Jane’s dance was beautiful. Darn you, Carrie Ann. At least I have tissues nearby.
All of the judges give the dance a nine. Jane & Tony have 27 points.
Julianne & Helio are up now. The two practice right after last week’s results show. Yikes. Unfortunately, Helio hurts himself during practice. Let’s see how his foot holds up tonight.
They are dancing the jive to “Kids in America.” The routine is energetic and fast-paced. Helio looks like a natural. At the end of the dance, Helio shows us his pants; he tore out his knee and is a little bloodied up.
After making sure that Helio is OK, Carrie Ann says that Helio has a few moments in which he crumbles; he needs to work on those. Bruno tells Helio that he wasn’t on tonight. The audience boos. Len points out a few of Helio’s errors.
The judges each give the dance an eight. Julianne & Helio have 24 points.
The last couple to perform tonight is Marie & Jonathan. Jonathan tells Marie that she is the queen of drama. Marie’s brother Donny stops by during practice.
They are performing the tango tonight. The routine sets up a story. Marie’s moves are sharp. She drops her arms a couple of times, but overall, she looks great.
Len tells Marie that she makes her routines fun. He also refers to her as elegant. Carrie Ann says that Marie reminds her of Lucille Ball… and that’s a compliment. Bruno calls Marie the Meryl Streep of dancing.
Carrie Ann and Bruno give the dance a nine while Len gives it an eight. Marie & Jonathan have 26 points.
Tom and Drew review the current standings.
Let’s see, who do I think will be eliminated tomorrow night? I’m going with Kym & Mark again. At some point, I have to be right. Right?
Join me tomorrow to see if my streak of incorrect predictions continues or if I actually get one right! Also, you don’t want to miss performances by Seal, Miley Cyrus, and her dad Billy Ray. Hopefully I’ll be off of the cold medicine by then. And be sure to check out what Foxes On Idol judge Sandy has to say at I'll Be the Judge of That!
