‘Dancing With The Stars’: Who Goes Home Next?
After a surprising no elimination last week on Dancing with the Stars, the competition is turning up a notch. Week seven not only brought the tears and the injuries, but threw in learning two dances as well. Tom Bergeron mentioned that next week guest judge, Cher, will perform and give her feedback to the contestants. If that isn’t scary enough, the countdown is nearing the end to see who will win the coveted mirror ball trophy.
Elizabeth Berkley, who received the first thirty of the season last week, performed the quick step. The dance was very quirky because of the character’s personalities and the dance was dealing with U.F.O.s. Len Goodman said this was a true U.F.O: “Utterly Full On; full of content.” This was a great dance to start the show as he also points out. The judges agreed and gave Elizabeth 9s across the board, totaling a 27 out of 30.
Brant Daugherty’s goofy sense of humor certainly didn’t disappoint in his jive. Even though, he had a few tiny slip ups, such as slipping on his dance partner’s skirt, Brant continued to have a good time with the dance. Carrie Ann felt that “this dance was a bit to challenging for him”. The judges decided to give Brant all 9s for a total of 27 out of 30.
Leah Remini seems to be coming into her own when it comes to dancing. Her dance partner, Tony truly challenged her this week when it came to the salsa. The lifts worked for her but Len wasn’t too impressed with it. Carrie Ann and Bruno gave Leah a 9, but Len gave an 8. She received a 26 out of 30.
Jack Osbourne was certainly feeling the pressure of having to learn two dances this week. He put a true effort into his jive. The kicks and flicks could have been a little bit crisper, but he didn’t look sloppy. The judges felt that this dance was “perfectly suited for Jack.” Carrie Ann gave Jack his first 10. Len gave him an 8. Bruno gave him a 9, totaling a 27 out of 30 score.
Amber Riley’s paso doble certainly didn’t disappoint even when her and her dance partner were dealing with intense injuries. Dancing through the pain truly paid off for her. She took control and owned that paso doble. Len whose been giving her a tough time with scores truly seemed to enjoy her performance. Carrie Ann and Len gave Amber a 10 and Bruno gave a 9 for a score of 29 out of 30, the highest score of the night.
Bill Engvall’s quickstep to Elvis’s “Viva Las Vegas” was not my cup of tea. First of all, the quickstep has to be quick and this felt very slow for my liking. Bill seemed to look very stiff and was constantly running around the dance floor. Len wishes he could score with heart, but realistically has to score through what he saw. Carrie Ann and Bruno gave Bill an 8 and Len gave him a 7, totaling a 23 out of 30.
Nicole Polizzi truly felt in her element when dancing the samba. As she points out, she was “channeling her inner Beyonce.” There was a lot of personality and hip action throughout this dance. Bruno felt that once she got into the samba groove, it all started to flow together. The judges agreed and gave her all 9s across the board, totaling a 27 out of 30.
Corbin Bleu was very fast paced in his footwork. The cha cha was fun and very entertaining to watch. Carrie Ann praised Corbin on his posture and Len loved his crisp footwork. Even though Len wasn’t in love with the “gyrating,” he felt it “fit beautifully with the music.” Carrie Ann and Bruno gave 10s. Len gave a 9, totaling a 29 out of 30. She tied Amber for first place.
Round two began with the dancers being divided into two groups. Spooky Bom Bom consisted of Nicole, Elizabeth, Bill and Leah. Since Halloween is just around the corner, they wanted to do a dance catered to zombies. Nicole brought her gymnastic and cheerleading skills to that dance. Len called Nicole “a little pocket rocket”. Bruno said “I never thought you can have so much fun with the Walking Dead.” The judges agreed and gave the team all 9s, totaling a 27 out of 30.
The next team to take the dance floor was Foxing Awesome. Foxing Awesome’s team members were Amber, Corbin, Brant, and Jack. They dressed as foxes and were performing to YouTube sensation “What Does The Fox Say?” Karina and Corbin brought the energy and the tricks to the dance. Bruno called them “sly foxes, it was very clever and inventive.” Carrie Ann felt like she was on an acid trip and loved every minute of it.” The judges gave them all 10s, totaling a 30 out of 30.
Bill Engvall and Nicole Polizzi were in the bottom two for this week’s elimination. Nicole and her partner were the next couple to be eliminated. After the Christina Milian shocker, no one saw this coming. The contestants took Nicole’s elimination very hard. At this point, this is anyone’s game. Who do you think will stay until the end?
