Monday night on Dancing with the Stars, the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 38-7. If you read that with a bit of mockery, then you’re catching on. Don’t get me wrong; in Pittsburgh, we worship the Steelers. But instead of football on Monday night, I wanted dancing. Luckily, Sandy Lamparello and Ally took over recapping duties for Yoko and me. (Thank you, Sandy and Ally!) Tonight, my furry friend and I are back, and we’re ready for some filler!
Tom and Samantha open the show, and tell us that Marie isn’t appearing this evening; her father died this morning, so she’s with her family. They also explain that after the scores were tallied, Marie & Jonathan are advancing in the competition.
Next, Tom and Samantha go over the dancing from the previous evening. (I think you should show some love and read Sandy’s recap.) They also review the standings:
Len says that he, Bruno, and Carrie Ann selected Mel & Maksim’s paso doble for the encore performance. I feel like I’m watching two hot vampires dance. Cool! I see why this dance earned the couple a triple goober.
LeAnn Rimes sings “How Do I Live” while Julianne & Tony dance. I enjoy the dancing, but the singing doesn’t do much for me.
The audience tells us its thoughts on the previous evening’s dancing. Everyone loved Mel & Maksim; Helio’s heat melted a few hearts; nobody seemed very impressed with Cameron.
Tom and Samantha reveal the next couple that is safe. It is Edyta & Cameron. The live audience may not have liked Cameron’s performances, but his fans did.
Kenny Mayne, Jerry Rice, and Len bring us another episode of DanceCenter. Kenny is sporting some serious make-up. He also gets snippy with Len. Even though it is just a bit, it’s funny to hear someone put Len down.
The Rock Steady Crew is up now with a performance. Basically, the members of the group do a lot of break dancing moves. They also defy gravity and move their bodies in unimaginable ways.
LeAnn Rimes performs for us again. She sings “Nothing Better to Do.” Some of the female professionals dance. It’s nice to see Anna again.
DanceCenter continues. Len tells us that he’s an older version of Cameron. Kenny says that Marie has 75 children.
Everyone now talks about how unpredictable the show is. Bruno begs us to vote. Nothing surprising is shared.
Tom and Samantha tell us that the next couple moving on in the competition is Mel & Maksim. They also explain that tonight, there will not be a bottom two. That means that Julianne & Helio, Jennie & Derek, and Jane & Tony are all in danger of being eliminated. Huh?
Next, they tell Julianne & Helio that they are safe. They remind us that the two remaining couples are not necessarily the bottom two, but that one couple did receive the lowest number of votes. What?
Tom says that the couple with the lowest overall score is Jane and Tony; therefore, they have been eliminated from the competition.
Jane thanks Tony and the fans. They move on to the dance floor and Jane jumps on Tony. With that, the show ends very strangely.
Until we meet again, I’d like to leave you with a saying that my people (German, Indian, Irish, and Welsh mix) hold near and dear:
May love never break your heart.
May football never interrupt your dancing.
