So the second hour of "Dancing with the Stars" was lightyears better than hour one... but the judging still left a LOT to be desired.
Marc Decascos completely fell out of one of his dance steps and every judge pointed it out, and yet he scored higher than the aging Tom De Lay who merely misstepped at the very end of his tango.... his scores were not as gracious. And he's in a lot of foot pain. Ouch.
Mya, what can I say but another electrifying performance, and Donny Osmond, at 51 the second-oldest dancer proved dancing is for all ages. Aaron Carter continues to dazzle with his precision.
Shame on Tony Dovolani and Louis Van Amstel, two of my favorite pro dancers who tanked their partnerst tonight, Kathy Ireland and Kelly Osbourne, respectively, with choreography that was too uninspired (in Kathy's case) and too complex (in Kelly's case). Louis should have stuck with a very straightforward, classic tango routine for Kelly who just fell to pieces after one misstep (and it wasn't that big a deal looking back on it); and Tony just never connected with Ireland and the duo never connected with the music during their rather cold fox trot. The routine may very well be the one that sends Ireland packing.
Predictions for Tuesday's elimination? I'm thinking Kathy Ireland or Tom De Lay will be stepping out of the ballroom for good.
