First a great
big thank you to ABC for allowing those of us on the east coast that were
affected by Hurricane Sandy to be able to watch last night's show.
I am so glad I was able to catch my favorite show even if it were a day
I am not
normally a country fan but thoroughly enjoyed the country night theme, it added
quite a bit of fun. Little Big
Town was a great opener
for the show singing "Pontoon" accompanied by the Troupe.
Peta's Cha Cha was incredible. I thought they totally nailed it and
expected perfect scores, however, hate to say it but Gilles solo was not his
best. It definitely could've used a bit more oomph.
Louis' Rhumba was breathtaking. Her lines were perfect and she danced
from her heart. So glad they scored a perfect 30.
Kelly and Val's
Tango was very well done but I think she appeared a bit too stiff in her upper
body. Great footwork and holds and loved the kiss at the end.
Tony's Viennese Waltz was beautiful. Her lines, footwork, everything was
right on target. Glad she is pushing through her neck injury and didn't
Derek's Cha Cha was not enough Cha Cha. It was more country and lifts
than anything. I also felt that she appeared too stiff, especially in her
solo but that could be due to her leg injury. Well done, but not their
Maks' Rhumba was incredible. She gets better and better every week.
She had great lines, movements, everything. Quite the hip action in
her solo despite Len saying he could've used more. Her scores
reflected that it was indeed her best dance yet. Still say good for her
for keeping up with the 'kids'.
Karina's Viennese Waltz was by far my favorite dance of the evening. It
was poetry in motion. The song was so beautiful and their dance was such
a compliment to it. I loved how his solo introduced the dance so beautifully.
I am so glad to see another perfect 30 for the night and especially glad
for Karina. I think she is truly terrified since she fell during their
Cheryl's Foxtrot was not the best dance of the night but definitely the best
solo. Emmitt just looked like he was having so much fun!
group dance was performed to Big & Rich/Cowboy Troy f. singing 'Save a
Horse(Ride a Cowboy)/I Play Chicken with a Train'. I loved it!! It
looked like they all had so much fun. Each team did a great job within
the group as well as with their own individual freestyle. My personal
favorites were Gilles/Peta and Apollo/Karina but props to Kirstie and Maks for
making it lots of fun and earning the 2 point bonus which is added to their
you again to ABC for allowing me to not miss this great episode. You can

Choice Awards 2013.
