Last night served up a miniature version of “Dancing With The Stars.”
DWTS lasted only one hour last night and only four couples performed individual dances, while the rest of the gang did a group freestyle dance to “Call Me Maybe.” Uggh, this can go horribly or perfectly.
The first couple to dance was Gilles Marini and partner Peta Murgatroyd, who performed a rumba and like usual, Giles was very sexy.
Len said Giles turned “October into Hot-ober.” Uhh, Len’s puns are relentless!
Carrie Ann said, “Let the babymaking begin!” and then fell out of her chair, presumably to start babymaking?
This couple ended up with a nearly perfect 29.5 our of 30. Dayummm.
Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke danced a samba to Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana” and delivered the dance equivalent of a Caribbean vacation. Len also loved them, saying, “it’s like the best party in the country.”
And Carrie said, “No one does samba like you.” Really? No-one? Ok, we’ll take her word for it.
Total score was 29 points.
Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkoviskiy had a lot to live up to, with Bristol gone, they are officially “worst” on the show.
She did a quickstep to a Simon and Garfunkel tune, which sounds like a terrible idea, but the couple pulled off a cutesy “Mrs. Robinson and Dustin Hoffman” in The Graduate theme.
Bruno called the piece, “You’ve got your toy boy where you want it, and you delivered it, my darling.”
They ended up with 25.5 points.
Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy who are probably secretly dating behind-the-scenes, did a Samba that fell flat.
Len even said “it was a tad on the raunchy side for me” while Carrie told Kelly that she was “uncertain, and your body was tense.”
Overall, they walked with 24.5 points.
After the four performances, the remaining dancers, Shawn Johnson, Melissa Rycroft, and Apolo Ohno did a freestyle group routine with their partners.
The gang danced to “Call Me Maybe” and set up the piece like a highschool classroom. Each duo was introduced and then did their freestyle bit. At the end, balloons were released into the audience. It was all over-the-top and lovely.
Next week, the freestyle dancers will perform individual dances while the others will do a group freestyle to Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” Oi vey.
