Hooray! The results show is only an hour. Watching four hours of this show was killing me. It’s a double elimination night again tonight. Two of our couples will be going home. Our encore tonight is Apolo and Karina. I think that was a good choice. It was a great dance, and I don’t think Apolo has been getting enough credit this season.
Sean and Derek – GOING TO THE FINALS!
We’re all really surprised about that, right? No one thought that those two would be in the finals. They’ve been the underdog couple all season.
We have a chick from New Zealand performing some filler dance. She tells us that you don’t really think of “dance” when you think of New Zealand. Apparently, between Utah and New Zealand, no one is thinking about dance. I mean, I don’t really think of the opposite of dance when I think of New Zealand. I’m not sure why every thinks we’ll be surprised that there are dancers all over the place.
This is the first thing that comes up when I did a GIS for “New Zealand dance.”
The Wanted are performing. Should I know who they are? Is that the music the kids are listening to these days? Hold on, some kids are on my lawn. I should go yell at them.
I feel fine not know who they are.
Apolo and Karina – ELIMINATED!
Melissa and Tony – GOING TO THE FINALS!
Damn. I’m sad to see Apolo go. There’s just something really likable about him. I just want to sit and have a beer with him. He just seems like he’s really humble and down-to-earth. He takes his loss gracefully as you’d expect him to do.
PAULA ABDUL IS BACK!!!!! This time, she’s performing. Yeah, Paul is all types of crazy, but there is no denying that the woman is a LEGEND! When it comes to dancing and choreography, it’s hard to top her.
MC SKAT KAT!!!!! That alone made it the best thing that has ever been on this show. I totally danced around my apartment while this was playing. “Cold Hearted Snake” was one of my favorite songs when I was a kid. The special effects were kind of cheesy, but it worked with Paula Abdul’s music. Also, there was a giant Maks and Paula took out his kneecap. I really like that Paula is laughing at the end of the routine. She knew how silly it was. She may be insane, but I think she’s in on the joke.
Can MC Skat Kat please replace both Derek and Mark?
Derek dances with some people and I don’t really give a shit. In fact, I take this time to give Lindsey (the cat) the belly rubs she’s been begging for.
Way cuter than Derek.
Kelly and Val – GOING TO THE FINALS!
Emmitt and Cheryle – ELIMINATED!
Like Apolo, Emmitt exists with class and charm. How can I make fun of this if no throws a temper tantrum when they leave? This is why I was hoping for a Shawn and Derek elimination. I have a feeling they would have acted like little kids. Well, Derek probably. I think Shawn probably has more self respect.
So, next week is the finals and it’ll be a ladies night. Our couples will be dancing an instant dance as well as a super-sized freestyle. In the freestyle, they can use any other dancers they want. That could be kind of cool…or a disaster. There will be no in between with that one.
I still would like to do a live-Tweet or a live-Facebook shindig for the finals. Anyone interested? Let me know which works best for any of you who are interested. I already have a PopePhilly Twitter account and will gladly create a PopePhilly Facebook page if we have interest and more people can do that.
For now, that’s it. Have a great Thanksgiving to those of you in the U.S. and Canada. I’m pretty sure Canada celebrates the same time we in the U.S. do – please correct me if I’m wrong. Catch you guys next week!
