Dancing With The Stars All-Stars -- Menage A Trois Week

Well, it’s another double elimination/double score week. So, which two will go home, this week? I’m saying Maks and Kirstie and Emmitt and Cheryl. Going by dancing, they were the worst two dancers, last week. However, Kirstie was the only star shown trying to help the hurricane victims by sending a lot of supplies their way. Will that impress the people at home more and get them to vote for her because of that? On the downside, Kirstie was criticized last week for claiming she had a relationship with Patrick Swayze. Many said she should have kept it to herself out of respect for his wife. The ironic thing is it kind of echoed her character Virgilia Hazard who seemed to have some twisted attraction to Orry Main, only Orry’s heart only belonged to Madeline. Kind of makes me want to watch North And South, since I have it on videotape.

In my neck of the woods, the show had a strange start. There was some weird counter and no one came out when they showed the audience, then ABC cut to commercial. Now all the couples are on stage. Tom said there were technical difficulties.

Tonight there will be two full routines. They’re also paying a tribute to Veteran’s Day. It’ll be interesting to see now that Derek’s back if Len will still be all nitpicky. If so, then it’s something he’s got against Derek. And if that’s the case, dude needs to take a vacation.

This round of dances seemed like mini-dance routines. That can’t last more than a minute.

Derek and Shawn are doing a Viennese Waltz.

Len – it was quiet and gentle. All made a slight complaint about the hold.

Bruno – heavenly perfection.

CA – turned into beautiful rich in-depth performer.

CA: 10

Len: 9.5

Bruno: 10

Total: 29.5

Apolo and Karina doing a tango. Apolo is complaining he didn’t get 10’s. Doesn’t want to play it safe, this week. Going to do a stunt with a zip line. Didn’t think the stunt really added anything to the routine. I thought when he said he didn’t want to play it safe, he meant dance-wise. Doing a stunt on a zip line really has nothing to do with dancing. Didn’t Gigi [Gilles] pull a similar stunt in a previous dance?

Bruno – daredevil of a tango.

CA – loved it.

Len – he’s his hero.

CA: 10

Len: 9.5

Bruno: 10

Total: 29.5

Kirstie and Maks dance a Viennese Waltz. I thought it was a good dance. I like Kirstie, I have to admit. She’s older and heavier and I think she’s doing a good job representing.

CA – one of her best dances.

Len – hallelujah! Best dance.

Bruno – very stylish and elegant.

CA: 9

Len: 9

Bruno 9:

Total: 27

Val and Kelly dance a Viennese Waltz. Have to admit I like Maks better.

Len – it was a little bit sharp on occasion. CA-CA interrupted his critique.

Bruno – twinkling twirler.

CA – she’s pushing herself to the edge and beyond.

CA: 9.5

Len: 9

Bruno: 9.5

Total: 28

Peta and Gilles do a Quick Step. Will we get through this without any displays of out of control ego? Says they need the perfect score. Wants judges to say he nailed every detail. He wants to do the perfect Quick Step. Didn’t really care for it. Think it was the outfits.

Bruno – top gun.

CA – it was so close. A few little slips in his feet.

Len – thunder and lightning.

CA: 9.5

Len: 10

Bruno: 10

Total: 29.5

Emmitt and Cheryl do a Viennese Waltz. I liked Cheryl’s dress. I liked Kirstie and Maks Viennese Waltz better though. Something’s off with their energy.

CA – very smooth and effective, but he slipped.

Len – he puts the oo in smooth.

Bruno – smart and classic.

CA: 9

Len: 9.5

Bruno: 9.5

Total: 28

Melissa and Tony doing the Quick Step. It seemed a bit better than Gigi and Peta’s Quick Step.

Len – it was quick and it had lots of steps.

Bruno – he wants to join the Navy.

CA – she salutes them.

CA: 10

Len: 10

Bruno: 10

Total: 30

Now they’re doing the Menage A Trois Dances where two dance pros dance with the celeb contestant.

Shawn and Derek chose to Samba with Mark. Big shock. They had practice for this, last week. May give them an advantage over the other teams. Dance seemed like something out of The Lion King. That’s supposed to be The Samba? Seemed more like a freestyle.

Bruno – very naughty. Great piece of art. It wasn’t really a Samba.

CA – she disagrees. She doesn’t care there was very little Samba. Maybe she should apply that mentality when she’s yapping about lifts.

Len – has to judge a Samba. Very little Samba content. If she goes home it’s Marky-Mark and Derek’s fault.

CA: 10

Len: 7

Bruno: 9

Total: 26

You know, I agree with what Len did. They were supposed to do a Samba, not a freestyle and Shawn even referred to the dance they did as a FREESTYLE.

Apolo and Karina dance with Dance Troupe member, Sasha, to The Jive. Didn’t care for it. Don’t think The Jive really works with three people.

Bruno – took a huge risk. Conquered it brilliantly.

CA – never shined brighter.

Len – fast and sure and tight.

CA: 9.5

Len: 9.5

Bruno: 10

Total: 29

Maks and Kirstie do a Paso Doble with Tristan. Dressing as angels. I could recognize it as a Pasa Doble.

CA – was a little sloppy

Len – aggression and attitude no finesse

Bruno – like watching Valley Of The Dolls

CA: 8

Len: 8

Bruno: 8

Total: 24

Kirstie having a really good time with Maks and Tristan.

Trio Jive with Kelly, Val and Louis. Thought it was a better Jive than Apolo and Karina’s. What I liked about this dance and Maks and Kirstie’s is Kirstie and Kelly danced the dance with both their partners.

Len – fun, fast, flamboyant and fabulous.

Bruno – what a swinger.

CA – transitions were fantastic.

CA: 9.5

Len: 9.5

Bruno: 9.5

Total: 28.5

Thought they should have gotten 10’s. Like Kelly dancing better with Louis.

Chelsea going to do a Trio Salsa with Peta and Gilles. I liked it. Again, dancing with both dancers like a Trio Dance should.

Bruno – ménage a trios comes natural to him.

CA – his musicality was a little off.

Len – well done, disagrees with Frick and Frack’s critique.

CA: 9.5

Len: 10

Bruno: 9.5

Total: 29

Salsa with Emmitt and Cheryl with Kym. I liked Gilles Salsa better. Think Gilles put more dancing in it than Emmitt did. A lot of times Emmitt seemed to be just standing there.

CA – red hot jalapeno.

Len – like working two yo-yos at the same time.

Bruno – happened naturally.

CA: 10

Len: 10

Bruno: 10

Total: 30

That deserved perfect 10’s?

Melissa and Tony will dance with Troupe member, Henry, dancing the Paso Doble.

Len – seamless between Tony and Henry. Impressed him the most of all dances.

Bruno – astonishing movements; thing of beauty.

CA – loved seeing her so in control.

CA: 10

Len: 10

Bruno: 10

Total: 30

I’m still saying Kirstie and Maks and Emmitt and Cheryl will be the ones going home tomorrow night. They’re just not on the same level as the other dancers.

On a non-show note, I heard that Brooke Burke is battling cancer. I’m always ragging on her about her puppies, but I really hope she’s able to successfully fight her disease. I also hope co-hosting the show helps her forget for a little while each week about her illness and that she has a good time with Tom and the pro dancers and celebrities.
