All this week, during the last few days before the Dancing with the Stars
season finale, I've been comparing and contrasting the strengths and weaknesses that the three remaining stars and their professional dance partners bring to the table. Along with discussing the merits of each celebrity and why he or she deserves a spot in the finals, I've also gone on a little trip down memory lane to remember all the performances that have led to this point. Today is the last look back, this time focusing on Lance and Lacey.
and Lacey Schwimmer
are the wild child couple of this season of Dancing with the Stars
. They have tried head judge Len Goodman's patience to no end this season with their modern dance elements and their insistence on pushing the envelope. They've done everything from turning tango into the latest cool goth trend and going barefoot, both on purpose and by accident. They always bring us a fresh perspective on the world of ballroom dance, and I really respect them for sticking to their guns and keeping the fun flavor in their routines in spite of all the negative criticism they keep getting from Len.
What's your opinion on this controversial couple, made up of one former member of the singing and dancing boy band *NSYNC and one former finalist on So You Think You Can Dance
and West coast swing dancing champion? Need a refresher? Let's take a look back at their five best performances from the season.
#5. Paso doble, week 2
We all know by now that Lance Bass is gay, but that doesn't mean he can't have fun kissing a girl. This unique paso doble had Len Goodman's knickers in a twist because of all the modern feel they brought to this style. But I loved it. I thought they still had a lot of the traditional paso doble silhouettes and poses. At least Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli appreciated the risk they took in modernizing this style.
