DWTS 10 - Week 8 (Not a Good Recap)

I was sequestered last week when DWTS was on and had to miss out on everything except the murder trial. I watched DWTS later on the DVR and found out that Pamela is no longer on the show. The last few weeks they have performed one dance and one group dance, but this is the first week for them to do two full routines. This is also the time in the season that I've almost forgotten some of the earlier ones were on there.

Chad and Cheryl's first dance was the tango which was showed a connection and was good. The judges said he made some mistakes that show up when they have to learn two dances in a week.

Second dance is the jive, and they had to pick a decade from the "hat" and got the 60's. Chad had on pimp clothes and did pretty well.

Scores: 7/7/7 = 21 and 8/8/8 = 24 Total: 45

Nicey and Louis did the Viennese Waltz for their first dance. It was too ungraceful at times but fun as always with her. Her schedule is something else! She gets up at 4:30 in the morning to get ready for her morning show at 7:30. Then she was at rehearsal with Louis at 11:30. The judges were complimentary.

Their second dance is a 90's paso doble, which was OK but not that great.

Scores: 7/8/8 = 23 and 7/6/7 = 20 Total: 43

Btw, I just love Tom Bergeron! He's hilarious and always brings it all together.

Erin and Maks danced an Argentine tango. Maks had to talk her out of letting their being in the bottom two last week make her nervous. He has a hard time with her anyway. She was afraid to jump off the stage and said he did this for a living but that she never jumped off stages. Apparently she learned because it looked great when she did that. Maks said he just wanted her to do it and then she'd never have to do another jump or leap again.
Scores: 9/10/9 = 28 and 8/8/8 = 24 Total: 52

Evan and Anna had three 10's last week. This week he took her skating. Their first dance is the waltz. Technically, Evan is really good but doesn't looks more like he's figure skating than giving a dance performance. The emotion and passion aren't there.

Second dance is a futuristic cha-cha. It worked out for Evan since he doesn't show emotion anyway. I'm so over him.

Scores: 9/9/9 = 27 and 9/8/9 = 24 Total: 51

Nicole and Derek danced a foxtrot, and what a foxtrot! That was such a pleasure to watch! Loved it!

Second dance was a 50's paso doble. They managed it beautifully!

Scores: 10/9/10 = 29 and 10/10/10 = 30 Total: 59

If based on the best dancer, Nicole will win the whole thing. As we know, that doesn't always work out. She should though. I hope Nicole and Erin are the two finalists. What about you?

I'm pulling for Erin too. It appears Nicole and her dance training have put her in a field by her self.
I think Nicole will win it all though.
