It was a night of not too many surprises or "wow" moments on "Dancing with the Stars."
Seriously. Even Gilles Marini, who has been positively electrifying the past few weeks turned in a jive that was more rock n roll than jive, to the point that, well, I had to agree with Len Goodman: It was just too frantic. Score: 26
The best moments of the night came courtesy of Shawn Johnson's "pure" yet sizzling rhumba and Lil Kim's fun, fast and wild jive. Neither dance was strictly indicative of its respective dance form, but at least they were both passionate and stylized. Score 28 for Lil Kim and 26 for Shawn.
Gotta say, Melissa's rhumba was a bore. It was nothing to scream about, no matter that the judges gave her a ridiculously high score of 27. It was clean and precise, but there was not much fire. Sorry,it just didn't wow me.
Lawrence's jive was equally unimpressive. It was his best dance so far, but still not on par with the rest of the pack. He was having fun, but it wasn't jivin'. Score:22
Julianne and Chuck's rhumba was smooth, slow and sexy, but there were too many technical mistakes to make it exciting. Julianne's costume sizzled more than any of Chuck's footwork. Score: 23.
Which brings us to the guy who's gotta go, and the guy who hopefully will be back to dance another week.
Enough already of Steve-O. The guy can't dance. He established that on week one of the competition. And I still don't know what judge Carrie Ann Inaba was looking at while Steve-O and partner Lacey danced, but it sure wasn't a rhumba. He was standing and pointing and pointing and standing while Lacey slithered all around him. She was fantastic. He was not. Score: 16. Here's hoping the dance-off sends him packing.
And then there's Ty, and you know how much I've been pulling for Ty! His jive was the perfect Texas line dance! What was his partner Chelsie thinking? It was "Urban Cowboy" instead of "Boogie Woogie." I hope Ty sticks around for another week. But the elimination round on Tuesday is gonna a tough one for him to survive. Score:18.
