OK, this week, I'm going to try not to say how much I want Kate off this show. Apparently people vote for her to keep seeing the train wreck of her stumbling around in a whiny daze. Well, I can't help it. She sucks!
This is movie week, so they danced to songs from movies.
Nicey and Louis danced the jive to "La Bamba." Nicey said before DWTS the only thing she did to stay in shape was - nothing. She said this was the fastest she's ever moved ... on the dance floor. This was pretty good but lost some on the footwork. I hope she gets to stay on the show. The judges said she was the jiggly queen. Nicey and Louis have good chemistry together and are fun to watch.
Scores: 6/6/6 = 18
Chad and Cheryl performed the quickstep to Disney's "The Bare Necessities" from The Jungle Book. Chad thought something was wrong with Cheryl during rehearsal because she wasn't laughing at his jokes and going along with his flirting. He kept asking her what was wrong, and she finally told him they had a lot of work to do and needed to get down to business. Apparently, it worked because Chad did well! The judges didn't think so, but the quickstep looks hard, and he kept up. They thought he was uneven, wild, and had bad posture.
Scores: 6/6/6 = 18
Erin and Maks danced the jive to "You Never Can Tell" from Pulp Fiction. Their rehearsals are like watching a romantic comedy with all the bickering and bantering and explosions. Fun and funny actually and definitely some chemistry. I thought the part was a little too long at the beginning with Maks reading the menu, but when the music got faster and the dancing took off, wow! Good routine that looked difficult! I enjoyed it. Bruno said Erin had that Uma magic and gave them the score I thought all of them should have - an 8. Brooke asked if there's any romance between them, and Erin said not unless he gives her a ring like Chad gave Cheryl. Maks ran away! Tom said, "It don't mean a thing if it don't have that bling!" They'd better not get voted off. I did my part.
Scores: 7/7/8 = 22
Jake and Chelsie did the cha-cha to "Old Time Rock 'n Roll" from Risky Business. He said he's been told he resembles Tom Cruise. Really? He started off in a white shirt and no pants and somehow put them on during the dance. Odd. During rehearsal Chelsie told him he's being too analytical and needs to feel the dance emotionally. So he showed up without a shirt and with sunglasses to channel Tom Cruise. She said, "Wrong movie." :-) He had good footwork, energy, and style. He's definitely improving. Bruno said he was cheeky and asked why he put his pants on. Carrie Ann said she loved the dance and the whole package. Well!
Scores: 8/7/8 = 23
Pamela and Damian danced the quickstep to "9 to 5" and she dressed like Dolly Parton in that movie. Pam said she was exhausted because this dance requires more cardio than some others. She stayed in character and did well - good footwork, energy, and posture. Len, of course, was crabby about the non-dancing narrative part for 24 bars at the beginning as usual, but the others liked their dance. Carrie Ann said she'd like to see her on Broadway in a musical. Len must not like foreplay. (Thanks to Charlie for that line!)
Scores: 7/6/8 = 21
Kate and Tony attempted a foxtrot to "Don't Forget About Me" from The Breakfast Club. She was horrible again, and the judges scores were way too high. I would have given her 2's. Bruno called the performance “catatonic.” He added, “Tony could have gotten more life out of a frock on a coat hanger.” So true! She must have pissed off the wardrobe department because she's in a frumpy dress again - not even really a costume. They've never put anyone in outfits like that before, and may I say that I applaud that. She reminds me of students I've had who didn't do their homework, study, or try at all and then wonder why their grades are so bad. Tony said she had no motivation and puts zero energy into it and expects results. He said he has to push her each week, and it gets exhausting. Poor Tony looks like a trapped animal. Then she blames not practicing on her children, whines, and says she doesn't want to be the underdog who is sent home and then uses the kids to get votes. She can't dance and doesn't even try to learn!!! Poor Tony for having to endure this torture.
Scores: 5/5/5 = 15
Nicole and Derek are dancing the tango to "Pretty Woman" from the movie. Wonderful performance! The judges loved it. So did I. Her dress was like the one Julia Roberts's character wore to the opera. Beautiful! Excellent footwork, energy, and style. Bruno said it was the pride and perfection of the tango! Carrie Ann praised them, too. I see 10's ahead for them except for Len but think he'll give them a 9. Right! Damn, I'm good!
Scores: 10/9/10 = 29
Evan and Anna danced the rumba to "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" from Armageddon. Dance moves are difficult for Evan since many are so different from skating - hip movements since they have to be still and tight, feet straight in skating and pointed for dancing, eye contact, arms, etc. Wow! Great lines, emotion, and footwork. They have good chemistry and movement. He seems so kind and polite saying all the right things. When asked about being competitive, he said they were all like a family and he cheered them on but was most competitive with himself and wanted to please Anna.
Scores: 9/9/9 = 27
Evan and Nicole should be the final two since they are definitely the best dancers.
