Now We Dance
This week Dancing with the Stars presented a fast, fun and sultry Samba versus the traditional, angry, sharp moves of the Tango. One rose to the occasion while another dropped with lower than usual scores. Not a fabulous night but interestingâ€¦it's always interesting.
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.
Slightly off SambaTying for fourth was Toni and Alec and Warren and Kym, both performing the Samba. Toni is usually tops in my book but she lost something today. What she lost was her costume! After being so tightly buttoned up last week, this one must have made her feel positively naked.
Warren also fell flat this week with a silly-looking Samba. This is one of those dances that isn't kind to larger, more masculine men. I'm betting he'll make a big comeback next week.
Cody and Julianne surprised the crowd with their tantalizing Tango. Cody looks so young that it's tough to get the mood of these more aggressive dances but he worked this one and that final move, where they were rolling on the floor - yeah, like that. Good job.
Susan and Tony were handsomely rewarded for their Tango but I don't think it was deserved. Susan was better but she still looks so breakable on the dance floor. Still, I agree with Dancing with the Stars host Tom, Susan dances better than Tony acts as we got to see when performed a one-liner on All My Children.
The leader boardTwo couples tied for the top spot this week, Brooke and Derek and Lance and Lacey.
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!
