It just keeps getting better and better. Last night was a just a taste
of what will continue tonight and I'm sure tonight will be just as good.
Team"Call Me Maybe" led by Shawn and Derek did a phenomenal
job. Loved the high school football/cheerleader idea and how they
incorporated so many cheerleading type lifts and jumps with the amazing
choreography. The way they introduced each individual couple was so
unique. It was so smooth and done perfectly. Each team's individual
dance was also done perfectly. You really couldn't tell who the star was
and who the pro was. Big props to Apolo for keeping up with the male
pros. Thankful that Melissa was cleared to dance after hernia ting a disc
in her neck during the camera blocking. Sher performed great through the
injury. They definitely set the bar high for tonight's team Gangam Style
led by Gilles and Peta. Can't wait to see it tonight. I am
expecting high energy and lots of fun to such a fun and fast song.
The individual dances performed by the teams on team Gilles and Peta
were wonderful and as follows:
Kelly and Val's salsa was a bit slow starting but turned out very well
done. She had beautiful lines and extensions and great footwork but her
upper body seemed a bit stiff and she seemed to hold back a bit. Maybe
she was tired from working all week and learning two dances. Whatever it
was, I hope she performs the team dance tomorrow with a bit more vigor.
Gilles and Peta's Rumba was AMAZING! Perfect lines, footwork and story
telling. No wonder most men hate him! Loved the comment that they
will be responsible for lots of baby making after the show and how Carrie Ann
fell off her chair while saying "let the baby making begin".
And to Len, if I had legs like Peta, I would be lifting them up and down all
the time too.
Kirstie and Maks did a great Quickstep. This was her best dance yet
and truly showed how far she has come. I think the fact that she danced
more than acted the dance made a big difference as well. She is doing a
great job and I think its great that at her age she is working so hard and
keeping up with the 'kids'.
Emmitt and Cheryl's Samba got raving reviews from the judges but for some
reason for me it fell flat. It was a very well performed dance with great
footwork but he appeared too stiff for me. I know he's a big "sexy
beast" as Paula Abdul said, but he needs to loosen up those hips a bit
more in my opinion.
I am counting the hours until part two tonight. I can't wait to see
team Gangam Style's dance as well as the individual dances for tonight's Call
me Maybe team. How anyone could even be voted off at this point is not
even right. This has been the best season yet and even though I keep
saying how can it get any better, it does!
