DWTS Extradordinary Final


Tonight was a treat. They were all fantastic! After it was over, I called up and voted for all of them. I did give some extra votes to two of my favorites which shall remain private.

They all revisited dances that they didn’t get high scores on during the season.

William Levy and Cheryl
During the Cha cha Sheryl wore a colorful dress, and William wore a sexy pink shirt.  What rhythm, grace, and sexuality!
After the dance, red and green paper exploded like fireworks. Well deserved.
Len: “Good  as I’ve ever seen in 14 seasons.”
Bruno:” Intoxicating Cuban cocktail.”
Carrie Ann:” You’ve grown miles, and that’s what this show is about!”

They got a perfect score from the judges

Freestyle

They took big risks.” I know from my life…from the biggest risks, the biggest rewards come, ” said William.

Cheryl was wearing a gorgeous red dress, and William was wearing a black outfit that showed off his muscular body.
There were great lifts and shaking. I thought it was a wow!
Len: “I liked the lifts and the tango, but it was too predictable…  you just shake your butt!. He did have a bit of a point. The other judges didn’t agree and gave him 10’s.
Final score
59/60

Katherine Jenkins and Mark
Paso Doble
She was wearing a  beautiful black and red dress and Mark was wearing a cool matador outfit. They were in perfect sync. They were of equal talent; she is like a pro.
Bruno: “Lustrous artistry, shapes extended beautifully, technical brilliance.”
Carrie Anne:” Primo!”
Len: “Very satisfying, fabulous.”

Freestyle

Mark says she’s a most versatile dancer, so he choreographed a dance that had her transitioning between the dances: Jive, Quickstep, Lindy Hop, and Tap.
I liked her white flapper costume.
She sang a little at the beginning and she sings like she dances.  She is a classical singer, don’t forget.
Her dancing is really terrific.
Bruno: “Fast and flamboyant, so much content, on the money all the way through.”
Carrie Anne:” You have the range of motion, and the dance of a champion.”
Len: “If I’m asleep and dreaming, don’t wake me up. This is a freestyle. ”
She had fun!
60/ 60

Donald Driver and Peta
Argentine Tango
He shows a certain power and toughness. Peta’s blue outfit was almost indecent, but she can wear it. Her next costume for the freestyle was even more sexy, a little 2 piece green outfit.
It was a smoldering dance
(I don’t know how his wife sitting in the audience can take it.)
Carrie Ann: “Crisp”
Len: “It needs far more content. Lifts are great, but you were a tad careful. You could have gone on it a little bit stronger.”
Bruno: “Very clever: subtle and intimate: small in the detail. Strong storytelling.”
Donald Driver said, “Len,I don’t want to know what I have to do, but on the freestyle I promise you, I’ll give you a 10.”

Freestyle

He’s from Texas, and knows how to country dance. During rehearsal Donald kicked Peta accidentally . So, she had bloody lips, big deal.  She’s as tough as he is!

It was perfect: He was throwing her all over the place like she weighed nothing at all.

Why is his family is wearing cheese on their heads is beyond me? If you know, let me know!

Carrie Anne:” I loved it.”
Len:” fantastic!”
Bruno:” I can’t resist a ride in the wild  dress. Country inspired triumph!” (Don’t you love Bruno’s critique’s?)

Donald did what he promised, and got a 10 from Len.

I liked them all so much I voted for all of them!

What inspires me about this show is how they all take criticism gracefully, and then go back and improve their dances. You can tell that’s what they all do in life.

Who do you think is going to win?

My bet is Donald Driver, but anyone of them could be a winner.

My predictions were right: Find out why Melissa and Roshon went home!

This week, the stars did two dances. The second dance was with a third partner. Like a classic fantasy. Tomorrow they’re eliminating 2 of the stars.

Donald Driver: Did a flawless dance. This guy is super talented.
Second dance: jive with 2 girl dancers . Fantastic and musical.
Total score 55/60

Maria Menounos Viennese Waltz. It was a  beautiful waltz and  everyone loved it. Len wanted to see them do a little more.
Second dance: 2 guys and Maria It was a Samba.
Samba – Bollywood type dance from India: I’m betting Len isn’t going to like it!
I was right! He didn’t like it!
Total score: 53/60

Melissa Gilbert fox trot —a few awkward moments for Melissa. Carrie Ann: liked it. Judges pretty much liked it. I was surprised.
Second dance: Maks and his brother―Samba  Maks and his brother are fun to watch!
Judges thought it was her best dance. I Agree!
Total score: 51/60

Katherine Jenkins Viennese Waltz She’s a wonderful dancer, and it’s flowing very well. She’s too gorgeous. Carrie Ann was a little critical. Maybe she’s jealous! They brought back Tristan to help on the second dance.
Second dance: Cha Cha—Looks like her pants got caught on her heels! She got rid of it masterfully!
Total score: 55/60

Roshon Fegan–  Viennese Waltz His grandmas both came to the rehearsal, and one was giving him a lot of advice. She is obviously where he gets his dancing talent from. It was precious (They were pretty old for such a young guy! ) He’s such a good dancer. He looks perfect to me!

Second Dance: Paso Doble: They brought in a guy to help with the dance. He looks like he’s as good as the pro helping with the dance. Len liked it!
Total score: 56/60

Grandma’s were in the audience crying with joy at judge’s evaluations! Len said, “good job dog.”

William Levy and Cheryl― Fox trot   He has charisma, good looks and dance talent. He’s my favorite. As Len put it, he has “flair.” He got a perfect 30!
Second dance: Paso Doble: He played a Perfect Zorro. “I used to watch it as a little boy in Cuba.” They brought in another male pro to help. I thought it was wonderful.

Judges disagreed! He lost some timing! So they gave him 9’s instead of 10’s.
57/60 Highest score in the night!

I don’t know how they’re going to eliminate two of these great dancers!

Who do you think is going to go! I say Melissa and Roshon. (The public doesn’t like Roshon and Melissa is the weaker dancer, but she does have fans! )

The results are in: There were some scary moments. It almost seems liked Melissa’s fans would send Katherine Jenkins home, but it was all a ruse. I think DWTS weren’t telling the truth when they said Katherine was in jeapordy!

I’m betting the winner is going to be hunky man: William Levy. What do you think?

Dancing With the Stars Motown night is a winner!


Smokey Robinson and The Temptations were featured guests. They brought me back to the good old days. They alternated singing their famous songs while couples danced. They both sounded just the way I remember them. I felt 16. How about you?

Gladys Knight did a competent job. She has real class, and this is the best she’s done. You could tell she was remembering that she is a star!

I thought Roshon Fegan did a classy job, but the judges didn’t agree. What do they want? Geez!

Maria Menounos She’s a terrific dancer and lived up to her other dances tonight. The judges liked her too.

Katherine Jenkins  did an expert job. Almost a triple score. She looked perfect. I’m starting to be so jealous of her. Beauty and grace. It’s just not fair. Oh, and she’s an opera singer too.

Don Driver Don kept his shirt on this week. Surprise! This guy looks great when he dances. Len gave him a big compliment. He told him he “exploded.” Len sees him as becoming a great dancer. Apparently, he doesn’t follow football, and doesn’t know he already picked a career. Don is frustrated because Len hasn’t given him a 10 yet!

Melissa Gilbert did a  Viennese Waltz. Half-pint looked glamorous and beautiful in her green gown. I thought she danced beautifully. She looks like she’s got a thing for Maks. Bruno thought she has a thing for Maks too. Who wouldn’t? They gave her 8’s. One of them should’ve given them a 9. Give me a break.

Jaleel White  did a Cha Cha Jaleel and was in his element. He reminded me of the old Erkel. He was sharp and precise. He showed what a great dancer he is. I hardly noticed Kim this time, and she’s a terrific dancer. Len said, “You’re back.” Bruno “Biggest sizzler of the season” Carrie Ann” A Game. Jaleel’s mom was all excited.

William levy  Smoky Robinson sang. Levy did a Rhumba. OMG this guy looks fabulous just standing still. He did a lot of shaking and gyrating. Not the best dance moves.

Carrie Ann said, ” On Behalf of all the women, thank you, but not enough dancing” Len said, “ On the raunchy side.” All right! I agree with Len and Carrie Ann.I suspect Bruno is a little in love with Levy. Who can blame him?

Smoky Robinson sang “Tears of a Clown.” Two pros did a great dance to it.

All the dancers did a Cha-Cha Motown dance marathon They were all very entertaining in their colorful costumes, and sexy moves. Gladys and Tristan were the first to go! Boo, age discrimination. William Levy came in next to last. He moved his feet this time, and even slid across the floor! Katherine and Mark won.  They earned 10 points.

Dancing With the Stars is the most entertaining show on TV. Agree or disagree. I’d appreciate your comments.
