Erin & Maks (Season 10) - Skip ahead to 2:40 to see the dance.
Gilles & Peta
Once again, I think production value added a lot to Gilles and Peta’s dance. The flying aspect was kind of cool, but it really didn’t seem necessary. It felt like it was in there just for the sake of doing something different. I think that Gilles and Peta definitely had a better chemistry in their dance than Erin and Maks did. Let’s see what the judges have to say.
Bruno thinks that Gilles can fly in and out of any bed he chooses. Can he please fly into my bed? I’d appreciate that. Then Bruno calls the dance “50 shades of Gilles.” OK, I thought the “50 shades of [adjective]” thing was cute for all of two weeks. I’m sick of it now. (Please don’t tell my kickball team. Our name is 50 Shades of Game.) Carrie Ann liked Gilles entrance and thought she would have paid more attention to “Peter Pan” had he looked that good. If I remember correctly, the roll of Peter Pan is traditionally played by a woman. Perhaps Carrie Ann should rethink what she’s saying. She likes his dramatics, but thinks that Gilles has to watch his energy so that it matches up with Peta. Len wants the holds to be tighter (I’ll hold Gilles tighter!), but he liked the menacing feeling. However, that menace sometimes bordered on “cranky.” Len is the expert when it comes to cranky.
Carrie Ann – 8.5 (Carrie Ann apparently forgot what number she was holding up because she almost forgot the “and a half.”)
Len – 8.5
Bruno – 8 and a HALF!
Melissa, Melissa’s tramp stamp, and Tony will be performing the samba from season 13 that earned J.R. Martinez (adore him!) and Karina a perfect 30. They’re going to be doing some pretty dangerous moves – including one where Melissa’s head hits the floor.
J.R. and Karina (Season 10)
Melissa and Tony
Both were really awesome dances. I’ve never been Melissa’s biggest fan, but I really enjoyed this dance. However, I think I still prefer the original because it’s impossible to not like anything J.R. has ever done. Will this bring a perfect score for Melissa and Tony? Let’s find out what the judges think.
Carrie Ann loves the technique, but thought Melissa was a little scared at times. Len thought it was like a can of cola – fizzy, refreshing, and satisfying. Len apparently likes cola a lot. Bruno says Melissa can take him any way she wants him. Thanks for that, Bruno. Just once, I want Bruno to simply say, “Yeah, it was all right.”
Carrie Ann – 9
Len – 9
Bruno – 9
27/30 The highest score of the night so far. In fact, as Tom mentions, it’s the highest score of the season.
Apolo and Karina will be recreating Gilles’ foxtrot from season 8. Apolo wants to recreate Gilles’ sexiness without taking off his shirt or showing his man boobs. Apparnetly, Apolo has not been keeping up with his workouts because he now has man boobs.
