Two more couples are going home on Dancing with the Stars, the Ballas Hough Band is performing live, and hopefully we’ll get to see even more of Derek Hough’s fantasy world. I’ll be here throughout the hour keeping an eye on the show, but I think this week is very predictable.
The judges’ scores this week on Dancing with the Stars have the bottom three couples separated by quite a bit from the top of the pack, so it’s almost certain that Mark Dacascos will go home and Michael Irvin will (hopefully) lose to Mya in the dance-off. I’ve been right about who goes home for the past two weeks, so my confidence level is very high.
The show kicks off with an encore of the Team Tango, which is fine by me. It kicks just as much butt as it did last night. The only way it could be cooler is if they used Blake Lewis’ beat box version of “You Give Love a Bad Name” from American Idol.
RESULTS, PART 1:
Kelly Osbourne and Louis van Amstel are SAFE.
Mark Dacascos and Lacey Schwimmer are in the BOTTOM 3.
Yippee, Kelly is safe. I know she’s not that great, but I like her anyway.
RESULTS, PART 2:
Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson are SAFE.
Michael Irvin and Anna Demidova are in the BOTTOM 3.
Not surprising, and now it seems almost certain that Mya will be in the bottom. If not, it means one of the two highest scoring couples is in the bottom, which means America really hates them.
It’s time for Mark Ballas and Derek Hough to sing their new song. And wow, it’s kind of insane. They are both auto-tuned beyond all recognition, and it’s all this weird electronic dance club music. I think a rave just broke out on Dancing with the Stars. It’s simultaneously awesome and awful.
RESULTS, PART 3:
Mya and Dmitry Chaplin are SAFE.
Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough are SAFE.
Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff are in the BOTTOM 3.
Hahahahahahaha! Aaron tied the season high score and had the second highest overall total from the judges, yet still wound up in the bottom. Sorry Aaron, but this is proof positive that America hates you.
He beat Donny and Kelly by three points each and Mya by four points, so he must’ve scored laughably low with viewer votes.
I usually don’t pay attention to the singer interludes, but this was too sad to ignore. Rod Stewart’s voice is so hoarse and raspy that it’s just embarrassing to watch him try and sing. Dude, it’s time to retire.
Michael and Anna are ELIMINATED.
Wow, the man whose fans saved him week after week lost thanks to some overwhelming fan support for the sick Lacey. I’m also thinking that, if the pity vote is there with the judges, there could be an outside shot that Mark and Lacey stick around and Aaron Carter goes home when he scores the highest individual score of the season.
Mark and Lacey – Cha Cha Cha
It’s solid and fun, and they excel by showing off Mark’s martial arts aerial skills. The only slight issue I have is a tiny stumble on his second cartwheel. The judges LOVE them.
Aaron and Karina – Jive
Even Aaron acknowledges that having the judges decide over America is better for him. They do another Jive which is a double-edged sword. He just delivered an amazing Jive last night, so this one might have to be compared to it. Luckily for him, the judges all seem to think this Jive was even better than last night’s. That should mean they’re definitely safe, right?
Mark and Lacey are ELIMINATED.
It’s sad that it had to happen, especially since Mark got screwed this week with Lacey’s flu, and honestly, if that didn’t happen, I have no doubt they would still be safe because I suspect Mark and Lacey could’ve scored at least five or six points higher.
Next week on Dancing with the Stars: It’s back to single elimination, but now it’s double the dances as each couple will perform two solos.
Predict who will go home every week with Dancing with the Stars Fantasy TV.
