his was an entertaining show. Our only complaints were that it was way, way too long, and had so many commercials we lost count. It is another show where 20 minutes of performance is countered with an hour and 40 minutes of commercials and boring filler.
They could spice up the show by making it hit a bit faster and running it for only an hour. That would be more than enough time to get across these dancer’s talents, and they still would have had 2/3 of the show for filler and commercials.
All that said, let’s judge, shall we?
Cody and Julianne (6/10)
They started sweet and cute. They seemed ahead of the music much of the time and didn’t finish with the music. Overall, though, they won’t go home.
Rocco & Karina (6/10)
Graceful, very nice lines. But Rocco needs a ton of work. Right now, his “cooking” is still in the kitchen and not on the dance floor. Nonetheless, they were good enough to survive the night.
Toni & Alec (8/10)
Toni Braxton is “all that”. The woman is a hot mover and Toni is as stunning as she is graceful. Alec makes a great partner, and the two of them together are smoking.
Maurice & Cheryl (6/10)
We just didn’t get the chemistry. They looked like they were having fun, but the dance didn’t come off as anything special. And when you can say that about any dance Cheryl was in, it is a rare occurrence.
Brooke and Derek (7/10)
We liked Brooke’s moves and the dance was very hot. The chemistry was there, and if Brooke were dressed a tad hotter, we may have awarded another point. No elimination here.
Ted & Inna (6/10)
Nice, formal dance. A bit boring. Ted was a bit stiff, perhaps nerves. We think they survive, but Ted has to loosen up.
Lance & Lacey (9/10)
No one can touch Lacey on the dance floor in this competition. She is smoking hot. She is not the prettiest woman, but no one can move like her. Lance came across as very masculine and danced extremely well, but Lacey stole the show. Great job. More!
Cloris & Corky (3/10)
Horrible. Cloris looked old and fat in the dress. She comes across as cornball and tries to make fun of the situation, but this is a competition, and she shouldn’t be in it. Elimination Risk.
Jeffrey & Edyta (3/10)
Could someone be a worse dancer than Cloris? We should match Jeffrey and Cloris up and make this real easy. Neither will last the week. Jeffrey is a standup comedian, but this dance was so bad, it wasn’t funny. Don’t give up your night job Jeffrey. Elimination Risk.
Kim and Mark (6/10)
Kim was absolutely incredible in her gown. No doubt, if this were only based on beauty, she would steal the show. But her dancing was a bit stiff and she needs to loosen up to get the timing right. Mark doesn’t help much. His personality doesn’t do it for us.
Susan and Tony (5/10)
Susan may survive, but this is a game for the young, and she isn’t. Despite a hot red dress, she didn’t look hot, and the dance came across as stiff and not much fun.
Misty & Maks (8/10)
Surpise of the night!! Mysty May danced with aplomb. She had smooth lines and looked as beautiful on the floor as any of her competition. She has the ability to get her technique down and has a real competitive flair. We like her chances.
Warren & Kim (6/10)
The judges were watching a different dance than we watched. Kym is phenomenal, but Warren looked like a Sap. His leg movement was OK, but his belly was bouncing all over the place and his upper body movement looked comical.
Cloris Leachman or Jeffrey Ross will be sent packing first, but it won’t matter much because the other is likely to go second.
