Len just isn’t going to give up that 10!
Apolo and Karina are performing Hip Hop. While they’re getting some random massages, Karina admits that she hates Hip Hop. She really seems insecure. She’s cursing up a storm. Shut up, Karina! Just stop complaining. You’re starting to sound like Bristol!
BELL BIV DEVOE!!! I’m such a 90s kid! Man, it really showed in that dance that Karina hates Hip Hop. First of all, she fell. Aside from that, the whole thing just looked uncomfortable. However, I will say that I didn’t realize Karina actually fell until she pointed it out. It almost looked like that move was on purpose because they were doing all types of drops. Apolo taking off his mic to the beat was pretty cool.
Carrie Ann reassures Karina that she didn’t mess up the whole routine. She also likes the modern choreography to the old school song. Len just says, “Go, dawg!” Also, he wasn’t even looking at Karina. I wonder if Len’s wife knows. Paula knows that professionals are always hardest on themselves. Bruno calmly says that Apolo made the running man look good!
Carrie Ann – 8.5
Len – 9
Paula – 8.5
Bruno – 8.5 (The excitement is gone)
Also, just for shits and giggles, here is a photo of Len in 1956 that I found:
He knew how to rock a turtle neck!
Last but not least, Kelly and Vally are performing a Contemporary dance…in their underwear. They’ve both been acting weird and moody all night. I wonder if they’re trying to stay in character or they’re just being jerks. It was mentioned that Kelly broke her toe earlier that day, so she’s probably miserable. Val seems to just be acting like a 15-year-old emo kid. Also, that was some really awkward rehearsal footage. I wouldn’t be surprised if we just ended up watching Kelly and Val have sex on dance floor.
And sex on the dance floor is pretty much exactly what happened. When they were actually dancing, they seemed a bit off. Maybe I just don’t understand Contemporary dance. Len thinks that Kelly is the biggest revelation of the season. Paula is proud of Kelly dancing through her injury. Bruno thinks it was beautiful. That’s the calmest he’s been all season. Carrie Ann is in tears and called the dance stunning.

Hooray! This episode is only an hour long because of the Presidential Debate! Yay, for politics!
The show starts with a woman dancing in the middle of one of those parachutes from elementary school gym class.
Ballroom at its finest!
Shawn and Derek – SAFE!
Kelly and Val – SAFE!
Bristol and Mark – JEOPARDY!
Sabrina and Louis – SAFE!
CARSON IS HERE!!!! He gets to rub bronzer on Gilles. I’m so jealous!!!! Then The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers performs. There weren’t nearly the acrobatics that Tom promised. There were umbrellas. That was kind of cool, I guess.
Gilles and Peta – SAFE!
Emmitt and Cheryl – SAFE!
Apolo and Karina – JEOPARDY!
Then there is a lot of fluff. Cheryl choreographs a dance with some people she’s known since she was a kid. That’s kind of cool. I didn’t really pay close attention. There’s still amaretto in my freezer.
OK, I have to say that I love the way that Kirstie looks at her score. She can tell people she got a 30. It doesn’t matter that it was out of 40. I say the same thing about the first time I won an award at States for public speaking. I came in 6th in rhetorical criticism. I just tell people that I was 6th in the entire state of Pennsylvania. They don’t have to know that only 9 people competed in that event that year!
Melissa and Tony – SAFE!
Kirstie and Maks – JEOPARDY! (No!!!! Kirstie needs to stay and make me laugh each week!)
Donnie Osmond and Susan Boyle sing “This is the Moment.” That is the worst fucking version of that song I’ve ever heard. I have to be angry for a minute. “This is the Moment” is a very special song for me. I sang it when I auditioned for college (I started as a music major), I sang it for a teachers’ conference at my high school, it’s just always been my go-to performance piece. Also, I love Jekyll & Hydelike it’s my job. To stop my ears from bleeding, I’m going to just put this here.
