That was cute. As always, it wasn’t the best dance of the night, but at least it looked like Kirstie was having fun and at least trying to dance well. I liked the shadow ending a lot. However, I have to ask, was she chewing gum? What the hell was that?
Carrie Ann said that was Kirstie’s best dance of the season, but there was one little mistake in the middle. Len agrees that it was her best dance. Then he makes a pun about them dancing to the Maks-imum. See what he did there? Bruno is surprisingly calm. I think he called the mistake a “caca.” Thanks for that poop reference, Bruno.
Carrie Ann – 8.5
Len – 8.5
Bruno – 8 and a HALF! (I think my Bruno is back!)
25.5/30 Their highest score of the competition!
OK, time for a real guilty pleasure! Emmitt and Cheryl are dancing a samba to “Copacabana.” As much as Emmitt gives me very little material to work with when it comes to snark, I really enjoy watching him dance. He reminds me a bit of Kyle Massey. He moves better than anyone of his body type has a right to! A part of me wonders if this is really Emmitt’s guilty pleasure or if he and Cheryl just chose a song that would be good for a samba.
That was just flat out fun! Sure, there were inflatable parrots, but the dance itself was pretty great. I do have to say, however, that whoever is styling the dancers’ hair must hate Cheryl. They give her the worst hairstyles (or non-styles, really) each week! Last week, she had that random braid around her forehead. This week, she just had a few French braids and the rest hanging limp.
Len really liked the dance. That’s all he said. Bruno got maximum pleasure from that dance. Of course he did. Carrie Ann thinks that Emmitt has the “samba swagger.” She’s the only one that offers any actual critique when she says that Emmitt was off a bit in the beginning.
Carrie Ann – 9.5
Len – 9.5
Bruno – 10
29/30 Emmitt’s highest score of the competition!
It’s time for the first team freestyle dance. Shawn/Derrek, Sabrina/Louis, Melissa/Tony, and Apolo/Karina will be dancing to “Call Me Maybe.” This is the point where we find out how Melissa got hurt. During rehearsal, she suddenly just screamed and had to be taken out on a stretcher.
The cheer at the beginning was kind of…stupid. Also, the ladies bobbing their heads didn’t seem to sync up correctly. Aside from those two things, I actually really liked it. That says a lot considering I’ve tried the past few months to actively avoid the song “Call Me Maybe.” I’m kind of amazed that Melissa could be thrown around like that considering she was just in the hospital for a neck injury. I’m guessing it wasn’t as bad as the show made it seem. Also, can we please get a flattering costume for Sabrina? She is a really cute girl and they always make her look hideous. No, she’s not as tiny as Melissa or Karina, but she’s not that big either. Can the people in charge of costumes please give her something that fits her body type? Thanks.
Let’s go to the judges! Len called it a touchdown. That Len is so clever with his metaphors each week! Bruno thought it was hard to tell the celebrities and the professionals apart. I agree with Bruno seeing as none of the people in that group are actual celebrities. Carrie Ann tried to do the “You got spirit…” cheer and then realized that she messed it up and just ended by making noises that kind of rhymed.
