Maurice and Cheryl started the Dancing with the Stars night with a disco inspired Samba that didn't quite work. I've never been too fond of this couple but still it was surprising to see them land second from the bottom after this energetic dance.
Staying on the bottom was Rocco and Karina and I'm sorry but there's just no help for this boy. He's sweet and it's obvious that he's giving it his all but he's simply not a natural born dancer. I fear Rocco will be bidding us all adieu tonight.
Climbing up from the bottom of Dancing with the Stars to fourth place was Cloris and Corky - yes really. This week Cloris was determined to go for technique instead of tricks and it paid off in a sharp, interesting Tango. Much improved, but do I think she deserved the 8 she was awarded? No. Let's face it, it's her age that's keeping her on the show. Next week should be her last.
Brooke and Derek are always good but this week he really set my heart to pounding. Usually, I feel the same way about Derek's boyish charm as I do about Cody, but this week he really let loose with a wild and free Samba. Was it the hair? The open shirt? Don't know, but I liked it and I love that kicky song they were dancing to. Hip Hip, Chin Chin!
That brings us to Lance and Lacey. They finally found a middle ground between traditional and modern with a Tango that pleased all of the judges and the audience. Not my favorite dance of theirs but if they want to win, they've got to play it smart and keep the technique tight if only to get Len's scores. I'd love to see these two in the finale with Brooke and Derek and Toni and Alex.
