It’s movie night tonight. Hopefully that brings out the joy in some of the stars.
Niecy and Louie- La Bamba-Jive
The dancing seems a little slow for a jive, but she is shaking it with all she’s got. I’ve her energy and spirit. Plus it doesn’t hurt to live your lips on Len’s forehead. Len says she put her personality into it. Bruno felt it lacked the necessary sharpness, but awww, Louie took the blame. That’s sweet. Carrie-Ann called her the shimmy queen.
Score: 18 (booooo goes the crowd. I’m with them)
Chad and Cheryl- The Jungle Book – Quickstep
The song makes me wonder if the Jungle Book will be coming out of the Disney vault. Chad seems more relaxed to me, as if he is having more fun. Bruno says it was a bit too wild and his frame was terrible. Carrie-Ann said he was uneven and lacked body contact. Len said he thought his posture was better than his Foxtrot, but commented on his hold.
Erin and Maks – Pulp Fiction-Jive
She’s got that Uma look down, I just wish they had given her a black wig. I think ths is a definite step up from her tango. She looks calmer, and that makes for a fun dance. Carrie-Ann liked it, but said she was a little ahead of the beat. Len hated the beginning, but liked it once it kicked into high gear. Bruno mumbled something I didn’t understand, but said it was her best timing yet. On a side note, romance will not be in the air until Erin sees a ring like the one Chad got Cheryl. Hmmmmm…..
Jake and Chelsea-Risky Business- Cha Cha
Jaws just dropped across America: Jake in tightie whities. Man, the fun is just infectious tonight. Some parts were good, some parts seemed like he was walking. But I’m still thinking of that beginning. Len says he gave it his all, and loved his feeling, but noticed his mistake. Bruno wonders why he put his pants back on, and complimented his energy, but mentions that mistake as well. Carrie-Ann loved it (surprise surprise)
Score: 23 (I wonder if his thighs had anything to do with it)
Pamela and Damien- 9 to 5- Quickstep
I’m loving the Dolly Parton look. This one starts slow for me (Len will probably hate it), but really picks up. Bruno compliments her characterization and says she did a great job with the dance. Carrie-Ann loved the dance, and thinks Pam belongs on Broadway. Len, hated the beginning (surprise) but liked the bits of dancing.
Kate and Tony – The Breakfast Club- Foxtrot
I see some stuff, but she’s still so stiff and anxious it’s hard to see any improvement. Carrie-Ann sees itty bitty bits of grace forming, but compares her to the Charlie Brown teacher. Len thought it was clean, but it was more of a stroll. Bruno thought she took a step back.
Nicole and Derek – Pretty Woman – Tango
I think it’s safe to say Nicole is back. It was fun, energetic, and from my inexperienced eye, looked pretty spot on. Standing ovation well deserved. Len thought it was her best dance, and the best dance of the season . Bruno said a lot of words, but I think I heard perfection somewhere. Carrie-Ann calls her a superstar, and says it was beautiful.
Score: 29 (Damn you Len, with your 9)
Evan and Anna –Armageddon- Rumba
His height affects some of the movement for me, but you can clearly see how skating helps some of his moves. Bruno thinks it’s superb. Carrie-Ann thinks there was beauty in the movement. Len felt it had artistry and musicality and felt he did a great job.
