1. Toni & Alec (8/10)
Toni this week was untouchable in her gown. She was the bell of the ball by so far, it was seriously unfair. The only reason anyone would vote against her would be jealousy. The dance was slow, provocative and sensual. Judges score: 23. A slight understatement by the judges, but overall, right on.
2. Brooke and Derek (7/10)
Great outfits, but the dance was stiff. They started getting it on in the middle, but there was little chemistry, minimal eye contact, just lots of flash. Nice finish. Entertaining, but not as good as Toni and Alec. Judges score: 24, an overstatement by the judges, but close enough.
3. Rocco & Karina (6/10)
Last week, Rocco must have cooked his special recipe for the judges to get the score he did. It was silly. Let’s see what he can do this week. Karina’s got the moves, but Rocco seems to be mediocre at best. The choreography was fun with a tray of gems being served up. Judges score: 16. Wow, we were generous on this one. But only by a point or two. If Rocco survives, he will need a much better recipe next week.
OK, we have the couple dancing to “I Kissed A Girl”. Lance, for you, shouldn’t it be “I Kissed A Boy?”. Lance did look great, even though the exaggerated lips on his collar looked a big corny. Good entrance. The job here is to exploit the fact that Lacey can dance better than anyone in the competition. Some great moves, between the leg slides, almost SYTYCD quality choreography. Ending kiss was corny though. Judges: 20, these judges are way too hard on Lacey. Won’t hurt much this week though. If they give Cloris 24 we will just stop watching the show period.
5. Kim & Mark (6/10)
Kim looked spectacular, but she has had continual problems with her dance having no passion. She looks like she is just going though the motions; it just doesn’t look right. There is absolutely no chemistry with Mark. Judges: 17. Finally, the judges show some aptitude for dance.
6. Misty & Maks (8/10)
Misty looked mean in the black outfit. Almost S&M folks. Would she lead Maks by the leash? It started stiff. But the athleticism kicked in and the confidence Misty has showed became evident. There was a great flip move near the end. If there were some whips, we would have given an extra point. Judges: 21. The judges praised these guys, but ranked Brooke and Derek higher? Wow.
7. Maurice & Cheryl (7/10)
Cheryl is incredible as a dancer. Once she starts moving, you know you are looking at true talent. Maurice? Not so much. He fakes it OK. This was all Cheryl with Maurice along for the ride. Judges: 19, just about right.
Cloris wore a wig and elaborate Spanish dress to hide her figure. Good thing. She is so stiff and awkward. Corky is good, but this isn’t about him. Cloris looks like a woman that would struggle to cross the street. It is just pathetic she is still here. We gave her an extra point for the dress. Judges: 15, and that was generous big time. Risk Elimination!
9. Susan & Tony (7/10)
Graceful at the start. Susan fit the dress well, and was better than last week. Still, she doesn’t excite us when we watch her. There are no chills. We give her one thing, there is chemistry with Tony. Judges: 21, exactly what we thought.
10. Warren & Kim (6/10)
Kim was over the top in her make-up. She is so stunning, but this week looked rather Trick or Treat. She can dance unbelievably though. The black outfits gave the bullfighter feel. Warren looked stiff. Nice walk in the middle towards the front of the stage. Warren looked like a fat ballerina for most of the rest. Even Kim couldn’t save it. Not good, but Kim, fantastic. Judges: 24, idiotic. Warren must have threatened or bribed them. The fact the judges gave them the highest score of the night was complete comedy.
11. Cody & Julianne (9/10)
Smooth start, nice moves. Julianne has the body for the short dress she was wearing and Cody looked like he fit with her. The chemistry and timing were there. They were our favorite of the night. Judges: 21. You would rate Warren Sapp above this dance? Wow. We hope the judges have a chance to study dance before this gets too far along. We would hate to see them ruin the competition with their inconsistency.
