Since there was no one voted off last week due to the Presidential election, it was time for a double elimination on Dancing With The Stars. Though not as shocking as Sabrina Ryan’s ouster a couple of weeks ago, one of tonight’s boots was a tad surprising.

This week it was all about veterans and threesomes. Sounds hot, but it’s not nearly as salacious as it sounds. Each couple was asked to create a dance honoring the armed forces and another dance involving another pro.

After Shawn Johnson and Melissa Rycroft were the first two declared safe, it was time to reveal the first one not advancing next week. Kirstie Alley and Kelly Monaco were pitted together and not surprisingly Alley was tonight’s first victim. I’ve enjoyed the former Cheers star thus far, but at this point she wasn’t at the same level as the remaining All-Stars. It was her time to go. At least she got to go out with a bang, dancing with both Maks and Tristan MacManus last night. Now that’s one tasty Ukranian-Irish sandwich, I’d like to take a bite out of.


After Alley and the elder Chmerkovskiy danced their final dance, it was time for the remaining contestants to pick dances and themes for their competitors next week. Though this segment is totally time filler, I’m really enjoying this new addition to the results show. Watching the stars awkwardly try to pick something that doesn’t seem like outright sabotage is kinda hilarious. Here’s what each All-Star is stuck with for next week.

Dances & Themes For All-Star Semifinals

  • Melissa and Tony – “Caveman” Hustle
  • Shawn and Derek – “Knight Rider” Banghra
  • Gilles and Peta – “Mad Monk” Merenge
  • Apolo and Karina – “Big Top” Jazz
  • Emmmit and Cheryl – “Espionage” Lindy Hop
  • Kelly and Val – “Surfer” Flamenco

Going into tonight’s show, I thought Emmitt Smith was in danger so it wasn’t surprising to see him along with Apolo Anton Ohno and Gilles Marini as the final three to learn the results. But in a surprise, Smith advances to next week’s semi-finals. Say, WHAT??? Does this mean Apolo is going? Though popular, his partner Karina isn’t warm and fuzzy and is a bit of a polarizing personality. Alas, the Olympian is safe and it’s the Frenchman who’s told to bid adieu.

Though I wasn’t a fan of his, I thought he was a shoo-in for the finals, since some felt he should’ve won his season. In addtion, I figured all those horny housewives were eating up his schtick. Instead it was D-Day for Marini. WOW. I wonder how Melissa Rycroft feels about outlasting him this season? She placed third to Marini and Johnson when they all first competed back in Season 8. Who do you think will walk away with the All-Star mirrorball trophy? Cast your vote below.
