Its that dreaded time again. Elimination night. Last week, Mike Catherwood became the season’s first casualty when he was eliminated from the competition. Last night, the stars hit the floor with dances that reflected personal stories in their life. We heard of love, loss, triumph and celebration, but tonight, we close the chapter on someone’s story, but who will it be?
Len thought last night was fantastic. There were spills, thrills and the leaderboard was totally shook up. He said some of the routines were fabulous and stood out. Len picks Hines Ward and Kym Johnson to re-perform their sexy Samba from last night. But before they perform, Tom lets the two know that they are safe for another week.
Sugar Ray Leonard and Romeo are first to hear their fate. Sugar Ray had a fighting Paso Doble and Romeo did a touching Rumba for his fallen cousins. Len loved Sugar’s comeback Paso but thought that Romeo took a step backward in improvements this week. So who’s safe? Its Sugar Ray and Anna. Psych. Romeo and Chelsie are also safe this week.
OneRepublic takes the stage after the commercial break to perform their newest single Good Life. Dmitry and Lacey perform on the floor to accompany the song and they are hot hot hot in their contemporary inspired Rumba. The passion these two bring to the floor is pretty awesome. It doesn’t hurt when the song is pretty powerful on its own.
The three to hear their fate are Kirstie Alley, Wendy Williams and Petra Nemcova. Wendy and Petra will hear first after recaps of their performances from last night. Petra and Dmitry are safe and Wendy and Tony are in jeopardy.
Selena Gomez is next to hit the stage to perform her top ten single, Who Says. She’s wearing a red dress with a bunch of flower cut outs on it? I don’t really know how to explain it but it looked amazing on her. Chelsie and Mark hit the floor with a stunning routine to accompany Selena. Patrick and I met these two here in Vancouver and they are crazy hot and that resonates on the floor in their routine. Their chemistry is bananas. They end their dance with a kiss on the nose. How cute!
Up next to hear their fate are Chelsea Kane and Kendra Wilkinson who tied with their points last night. They both told the story of love but did you enjoy their performances enough to keep them in the competition? The next couple safe are Chelsea and Mark. Kendra and Louis are in jeopardy.
OneRepublic hits the stage for a second time to perform another hit All The Rights Moves with a dance act by the new DWTS Troupe. The troupe is dressed in stunning outfits that make the routine feel like an old western turned classic story from the dark ages. I know the weirdest combo. The dance is stunning and really adds to the drama of the music being played for them. I can’t wait to see more from this DWTS Troupe this season. They’re awesome.
Chris Jericho, Ralph Macchio and Kirstie Alley are next to hear who is safe and who is in danger. Chris danced for his mother, Ralph danced for his wife and Kirstie danced about persevering after her parents passed away. All of their dances got mixed reviews so who will be safe? Ralph and Karina are the first to hear he is safe. Kirstie and Maks are also safe. Chris and Cheryl are in jeopardy.
The final three that remain are Chris Jericho, Kendra Wilkinson and Wendy Williams. Wendy had the worst dance of the night but has a pretty big fan following. Did her fans come to her rescue? Kendra may be a popular playmate but is she a hit with viewers. Chris’ story was tugging on my heart strings but was it enough to get the votes? The first couple that is safe is Kendra and Louis.
So its down to Wendy and Chris. Chris and Cheryl are safe and Wendy Williams is eliminated from the competition.
Next week, the stars and pros will take on the first ever Classical week with some special guest artists helping the DWTS Live Band achieve some pretty awesome sound. I can’t wait to see what this will bring. What did you think of Wendy’s departure tonight? I love her, but I thought it was deserved.
