The music swells. The tympanis beat out an ominous sound. A lone bassoon plays an eerie tune. The sounds of elimination fill the air!
They are all but harbingers of the necessity that is the week 4 eliminations on Dancing with the Stars
. No matter how much work went into understanding that complicated "classical" music (no lyrics?!), one of the celebrities will be making a final exit from DWTS
Who will it be? Let's find out...Who did you pick for elimination?
As has so often been the case amongst the readers of BuddyTV, there was great consensus on the most likely loser this week. A whopping 70% of those who voted in our readers' poll
chose Kendra Wilkinson and Louis Van Amstel as the pair to go.
A sizable minority also had it in for Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya, who were the elimination pick for 24% of voters. Meanwhile, Romeo and Chelsie Hightower, and Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin received 3% apiece of the elimination votes.
Are we correct? Is Kendra doomed?Did you miss anything?
While I can't recreate the melodious sounds of the orchestra with words (I try, but I am doubtful of much success), I can remind you of what has gone past. Check out the Week 4 Recap
and Performance Rankings
to get the basic, non-musical gist of it all.
Quickly though, Chelsea and Mark waltzed their way to the highest score of the night (26 points), despite the expected criticism from Len. They were closely followed by Hines and Kym and Ralph and Karina -- both teams scored 25 points. Despite a shoe malfunction from Kirstie, Kendra and Tony ended up at the bottom, with only 18 points for their dance.
It's still close. Anyone could take it all. So let's find out who it could be during...The live Results Show!
A classical version of "Walk This Way" to begin? Is that what that was? Wasn't expecting anything like that. Way to surprise me, DWTS
Well that was weird.
Moving on to the slightly-less-weird RESULTS!
portion of the show. The leaders get to hear their results first, which I suppose is fair and a good method for getting the obvious ones out of the way. So...
Ralph and Karina are SAFE
Hines and Kym are SAFE
This leaves Chelsea and Mark still in jeopardy, despite that whole highest-points thing. I'm guessing it's a ploy to increase the tension. Or something like that. Meanwhile, they get to repeat their dance. I suppose that's a consolation prize, somehow.
Ummm... What is Patriot's Day? Is that a thing? Or just an excuse for another theme week? Either way, they're doing dances to patriotic songs next week. Do they all have to be American patriotic songs? Because there are an awful lot of foreigners heading out to dance...
Anyway, it's time for Jennifer Hudson to sing. And it's time for Karina and Louis to dance to Jennifer Hudson's singing. Her dress is ... interesting? Also, purple.
Oh, Brooke... According to Wikipedia, the quickstep is English, not American. Just saying.
It's almost time for more RESULTS
! It's the middle-three this time.
Chris and Cheryl are SAFE
Romeo and Chelsie are SAFE
Petra and Dmitry, however, remain in jeopardy...
The final three couples (the ones in the bottom) are hanging out backstage with Brooke, where Kendra has the grace to tell us why she thinks last night wasn't so great. I guess dancing is
hard at that time of the month.
Ballerinas dancing now. They're really embracing this whole "classical" thing, aren't they? Ah, the Dancing with the Stars
salute to Black Swan
And more Jennifer Hudson. I'm sure we'll get to results again. Eventually. Maybe.
Kirstie and Maks are SAFE
Kendra and Louis are SAFE
Wait, what? What!? Oh my. This just got interesting.
With Kendra and Louis safe, I have no idea who's getting eliminated. Sugar Ray? Petra? Top-of-the-heap Chelsea? I have no clue at this point.
Ummm... Only a couple of minutes left in the hour. They're really drawing this out tonight. I guess it's a good way to milk us for all the ratings they can get.
Anyway, it's time for the final RESULTS
of the night!
Petra and Dmitry are SAFE
Chelsea and Mark are SAFE
! (No crazy upset tonight.)Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya have been ELIMINATED!!!
I blame Anna's crazy princess dress. Also, I suppose I blame the lackluster dancing. Oh well. Bye Sugar Ray!
