It's not guest correspondent Lenni G's fault this results recap is late.
Which five words best define "surprise?" Melissa and Maks are safe!
The result announcements were going just the way I thought they would - William and Cheryl, Donald and Peta, Katherine and Mark, and Maria and Derek were all moving on to next week. That meant the bottom three, according to Monday night's judges' scores, were in the bottom three after the audience vote. Time for the "SURPRISE" - Melissa and Maks were declared safe, meaning Roshon and Chelsie, and Jaleel and Kym would have to fight it out in the last Dance Duel.
OK, so I did pick Jaleel for the Duel, but certainly not Roshon who I felt was quite good this week. After the side-by-side rumba routines, the judges unanimously decided to keep Roshon, though all three said it was a very difficult decision.
Next week should be really interesting. Melissa seems to try hard but her dancing has not been, and certainly was not, on the same level as the other six dancers this week. Maks still has a cyst in his ankle which means Val will probably be on standby again. So, if Maks dances hurt or Val takes over, does this mean Melissa will get what I have to believe is the sympathy vote - AGAIN? C'mon people, enough already!
Top Six, or should I say Top Five plus one, next week.
