Once again, the WarmTV bloggers elected (begged) my mom to be our Dancing with the Stars correspondent. After each show, she calls me with her report...
Last night's episode of "Dancing with the Stars" proved once again that the show is just as much a popularity contest as it is a real dancing contest. How else can you explain the dancers in the bottom group, much less the dancer who so undeservedly went home? But hey, that's what you get when you let America vote. We end up with the dancer we deserve.
But despite the crushing disappointment of the elimination, my mom thought it was a great episode.
"It was a very good show. First, for the encore they chose Donny Osmond and Kym's dance, which was great. Then they talked about Kelly Osbourne and how she hurt her foot Monday night and went to the hospital. It was just a sprain so she's okay. Ozzy went with her and was with her the whole time. He was very sweet with her and told her that was all part of show business. I've seen a different side of him during this show. He's much more coherent than when he was on that reality show.
"The guest was Norah Jones -- and I knew who she was. Every time I've ever seen her perform she played the piano while she sang, but last night she played the guitar. I don't know what her first song was, but the second song she sang was 'Come Away With Me' and Jonathan and Anna danced, two professionals, and that was their wedding song when they got married. It was really pretty. The dancing and the singing.
"Then the pros did a tribute to Michael Jackson and it was awesome. Some of those guys on there could dance just like him. The whole group danced to "Thriller." It was fantastic. Of course, LaToya was there to introduce everyone.
"Now, to the elimination. The ones in the bottom were Joanna Krupa, Aaron Carter, Natalie Coughlin, and Melissa Joan Hart. They narrowed it down to Aaron and Natalie, and none of the judges thought that either one of them should be there. They were shocked and very disapointed that they were even in the bottom two. Unfortunately, Natalie went home and I was very sad. She's been my favorite all along. I was afraid she was going to cry but she held it together."
So there you go. At this rate, I'm thinking Michael Irvin or Louis Vito could win this thing.
