Last night, DWTS redefined rock (rock = shiny clothes) and tonight, one of our stars will be kicked off the tour bus. The leaderboard got rocked like a hurricane, and the night’s lowest scoring couples were Bristol/Mark, Kurt/Anna, and – gasp – Jennifer/Derek. Of those three, Kurt/Anna and Bristol/Mark were safe, leaving Jennifer and Derek in jeopardy. Tonight’s results are going to be interesting.
More surprises – Bristol and Mark were given the encore this week. Fine with me – I didn’t get a chance to appropriately admire Mark’s footwear last night. Purple shoes – not just for Grimace anymore.
Heart was the first musical guest of the evening, providing a rare moment of genuine rock in this Rock Week. For reals – someone threw a microphone stand and it rolled around while the professionals were trying to dance. I hope the Wilson sisters trashed the dressing rooms.
Another round of results – Rick/Cheryl were safe, and Kyle/Lacey were in jeopardy (nooooo).
Since it is Rock Week, it was only fitting to have a montage called Actual Rock Stars Discuss Ballroom Dancing. Yes, ballroom dancing is exactly like being a rock star. Little known fact – Bret Michaels, Dee Snider, Alice Cooper – all closet ballroom experts. Is this all a big tease for Season 12, possibly titled “Dancing with the Rock Stars”? Please say yes.
This week’s Macy’s Stars of Dance was kind of a wreck. It involved a bunch of dancers (choreographed by So You Think You Can Dance wonderboy Travis Wall), a teenage rock band, and a giant chorus of Glee-people doing Glee-rock things. The dancers were often out of sync, the singing was shouty … it was not up to the usual MSOD standards. Then Kylie Minogue came a-visiting to be fabulous and surrounded by pretty people. She could teach the MSOD a few things about performance.
This week’s montage: Everyone is Tired. No really, that was the point of the montage. Stop whining, celebrities! Dance for us, monkeys! (No Bristol, not literally.)
More results – Brandy and Maks were safe, leaving Audrina/Tony in trouble. Alas, Audrina was sent running for the Hills. She hadn’t really been connecting with the audience recently, and we’re at that point in the season now where mediocrity is no longer acceptable.
Next week is the 200th episode celebration – old favorites! Guest judges! People who know how to dance! It’s going to be grand.
