"Dancing with the Stars" correspondent Lenni G with last night's recap:
Guest blogger Lenni G recaps and make her elimination prediction:
It was all about the music from the 80's last night and we had the Bangles to get us in the mood. Though this was supposedly the "decadent decade," just how depraved can a song like "Walk Like An Egyptian" be? But I digress.
First out, Hope and Maks with a tango and Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer." Len was all over Maks for his choreography which he felt was not suited to a tango, and chided Hope for her "willowy" body which he also felt was not suited to the tango. Bruno thought Hope got the 80's super B---h down to a "T" as in strong, sexy and powerful. Carrie Ann agreed it was strong, maybe too strong. I was distracted by the discarded clothes in the middle of the dance floor and the fact that this couple, as Hope said, have a "love-love" relationship - they love to hate each other and it shows. Judges' scores - 8's from all three for a total of 24.
We gave Lenni G the week off so that's why there was no "Dancing with the Stars" recap today. But I happened to catch the end of tonight's elimination show, so I can tell you who went home.
The three couples in jeopardy tonight were Rob Kardashian and Cheryl, Chynna Phillips and Tony, and Nancy Grace and Tristan. Then Nancy and Tristan were declared safe, leaving Chynna and Rob on the chopping block.
"Dancing with the Stars" correspondent Lenni G on last night's surprising elimination:
Lots of good entertainment last night - Mary J. Blige did two of her new songs, "Real Love" and "25/8" (cuz 24/7 just ain't enuf.) The DWTS dance troupe, plus Val and Peta Murgatroyd (yes, that Murgatroyd), paid homage to "Gone with the Wind," dancing to "Tara's Theme." Hot new singer, Estelle, was joined by Chubby Checker and the Macy's Stars of Dance for a big ol' twisting session. Even Judge Len moved his hips for a few seconds. And we had an encore of Chynna and Tony's rumba from the night before. Everything was going well and mostly normally until the results were revealed.
It was all personal last night with the stars "dancing from the heart" about the most memorable year in their life.
Rob's year was 2003 when his Dad, Robert Kardashian, Sr., passed away due to cancer. Rob and Cheryl did a fox trot to "Fly Me to the Moon" which Rob said was one of his Dad's favorites. Len said he put the "dash" in Kardashian with his performance, Bruno loved the chemistry and story line, and Carrie Ann said he was, "debonair and charming." I loved the end of this routine with both dancers silhouetted in front of a big ol' moon. Judges' scores - 8's from all three for a total of 24.
Our pal and guest blogger Lenni G shares her thoughts on last night's results show:
Loved the opening number choreographed by Val featuring the guys, lots of guys, and a cameo from Carrie Ann at the very end. Ricki and Derek got the encore spot from the judges, redoing their jive from the night before. Guess Mr. Scrunchy Face, aka Grumpy Len, really did want more dancing from this couple.
"The Script" did their latest hit accompanied by some fabulous dancing from Chelsea and Dmitry. And we had Demi Lovato doing a very theatrical version of her hit, "Skyscraper." Huge kudos to this girl for the way she has turned her life around.
Our "Dancing with the Stars" recapper Lenni G has info on last night's elimination:
It's results night and we've got some great entertainment - Harry Connick, Jr. singing "Clear Day," and even better yet, Harry saying that his pick for winner is J. R. Martinez. Just one more reason I love Harry. LMFAO did their "Party Rock Anthem" and though the DWTS Dance Troupe was supposedly the featured dance act, I can guarantee you that the routine Carrie Ann and Bruno did on top of the judges' desk was way better. Why were we not treated to more views of the CA and Bruno - what's up with that, show producing people?
