As we were reminded multiple times last night, it is WEEK 6! Apparently, this means that Len is super-grouchy, and the judges are finally speaking their mind, instead of coddling the lesser-talented contestants (yes, I mean you, Chaz). It also means the scores, and the stakes, are climbing higher! Themes continue, with this week being Broadway tunes – making the absence of our dear Carson Kressley so much more obvious. On a side note, it was interesting to read articles last week on how upset everyone was at the loss of Carson. Carrie Ann even said her hairdresser wouldn’t come back since Carson had left! It was a sweet gesture to have him back on this week.
But voting off the fan favorite definitely shows the shift in voting priority! At this stage of the competition, viewers start to vote differently: contestants begin to drop off based on actual talent, rather than the popularity contest it has been until now. There are a few exceptions each season of course (Marie Osmond = Top 3? Ha!), but it was obvious last night that the judges are taking this more seriously, and so are our ‘stars’. As an added bonus this week, I thought it’d be fun to re-examine my predictions from episode one – the list is at the end of the recap!
But first, here’s a recap of the dances, in order of overall score:
OK….I have to admit….it watched it this morning and didn’t notice a “slip” at all. I think this picture makes more of it than there was. What are your thoughts on Nancy? She is sort of growing on me, although I don’t like the way she treated our wee Irish partner this week! Did anyone else noticed the way she kept caressing his face during practice? CA-reepy for sure!
This week I tried to find a fun quote for each couple that was either said or said about them. Enjoy!
First jive of the night: Hope and Maks: nice booty shake and she looks like she is having a much better time this week. Len loves it, but she lost her timing a little bit. Bruno: precise and accurate..needs to work on it. Score: 19 out of 30
Kristin and Mark: Quick step: a cute Marilyn! Bedazzled by the blonde bombshell. Hold your frame. Dance wasn’t as good as you look. Score: 22 Continue reading →
First, I am happy to introduce you to Becky, my dear friend. While Becky has recently left the world of the single gal to enter the land of the married, for years she was a shining example of an independent, single woman. Strong minded, loyal, funny, self-aware, generous and never willing to sacrifice for less than she deserves. So, I am allowing her to remain an honorary member of the single club. Each Tuesday, she’ll be giving us a breakdown of that brilliant weekly entertainment show that crosses all womankind – Dancing With The Stars! And now, here’s the recap!
Welcome to my first official recap of DANCING!!!! With the Stars!!! I am still working on a format, so I promise that thesewill get nothing but better from this one forward.
(First, I want to assure all my new readers that I have watched all 12 seasons of DWTS from the beginning, and am fairly spot-on with judges scores before they actually give them out…..so yes….I like to think of myself as somewhat of an expert on the show. Now, let the games begin!) Continue reading →
