, our favorite actor on "Blossom", the proprietor of "whoa", a man who has graced the cover of "Tiger Beat" numerous times (this is speculative), was shown no love by America and eliminated from Dancing with the Stars
last night. This was expected. On one hand you had Mario Lopez
, who is similar to Joey in most ways, but a far better dancer. Then, you've got Emmitt Smith
, who brings a totally different style and vibe to his routines than either of the pretty boys.
Joey Lawrence had a good run, and he definitely deserved to make it to the semifinals on Dancing with the Stars
. Joey's departure sets up an incredibly interesting finale next week between Emmitt and Mario.
A month ago, I would not have believed that Emmitt even had a chance to make it to the finals. However, like athletes of his caliber tend to do, Emmitt has improved by leaps and bounds every week. He is smooth and stylish. I have to admit though, it's still a little disconcerting to watch an NFL all-time great perform Latin dances in flamboyant outfits.
Mario is the most talented dancer on the show and he probably deserves to win the whole thing. But, now that it's all up to America's votes, who knows what is going to happen? Emmitt is probably more likable, in general, than Mario, although this may just be a personal bias.
Emmitt Smith shocks the world next week and wins Dancing with the Stars
