Dancing with the Stars
served up a star-studded results show last night, with performances by the great mistress of soul, Aretha Franklin herself, as well as our own Julianne Hough
showing off her other career as a country singer. There was still a lot of great dancing to be seen because all of these musical performances were accompanied by our favorite professional dancers. As far as results shows go, it was pretty entertaining.
But! We need to get down to business. Cody Linley
has received the boot, so there are only three stars headed for the finals: Brooke Burke
, Lance Bass
and Warren Sapp
. Each of these three stars brings something different to the Dancing with the Stars
table. Each appeals to a different kind of fan. For the rest of this week, I'll analyze all the reasons why each of these celebs deserves to win the mirror ball trophy.
First, Warren. Warren is amazing. How can a 300-pound guy move the way he does? He defies all expectations. Heck, the man practically defies gravity.
The thing I love about Warren is all of his incongruities. He looks completely ferocious, and he probably is. I mean, you don't get the nickname QBKilla for nothing. But there's also something really earnest and cute about him too. I mean, the man loves sparkles on his clothes! How can you not root for him? His ferocity really helps him in his performances, especially in styles like the paso doble or the tango. And his earnestness helps keep him going in rehearsals. He might be the hardest-working star left on Dancing with the Stars
, and you can tell by the expression on his face that he really wants to win.
Of course, probably the greatest gift that Warren has is his ability to connect with the audience. He always has everyone on their feet. His footwork might be lacking the crispness of Brooke's, perhaps, but he can look out into the audience and see into their souls. That is a rare gift, and an extremely useful one if you are looking for votes.
