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?

DWTS Classical Week: It brought me real joy!

This week Dancing With the Stars had classical week. This is exactly what classical music needs. Making  this fabulous music  relevant to today, and that’s what this episode of DWTS did. They also added 18 musicians to the Dancing With the Stars orchestra. Harold Wheeler, the orchestra leader, seemed so happy to be the conductor for the night!

The show opened up with Joshua Bell playing a tune from Vivaldi’ Four Seasons. In case, you aren’t a classical devotee, Bell is one of the best violinists around these days. The professional dancers dressed in really cool 18th century type costumes. It was very artistic.

Katherine Jenkins was the first contestant up, dancing the rhumba to The Canon in D by  Pachabel. wow! style and elegance!  She was wearing a gorgeous grecian urn type costume. The judges love this woman with good reason. She is the most talented dancer, and she is a professional opera singer.

Melissa Gilbert and Max danced the Argentine Tango. They danced a great dance to Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro. Exciting way to bring out the music. The judges thought there were too many lifts. I thought they were wrong, wrong, and wrong!

Jackie Evancho is a young prodigy opera singer. She did an unbelievable job singing Ave Maria  for a Viennese Waltz. William Levy did a masterful job dancing to the song. Not only is he great looking, but he moves in an elegant way.

Roshon Fegan Did a tango. Great job! Carrie Ann gave him a hug. She liked it.

Donald Driver did a  Viennese Waltz. Vittoria Grigolo, an opera singer, sang! Driver has a work ethic, and did a great dance.

Maria  Menounos did a Paso Doble to Montagues and Capulets . It was very dramatic I loved Maria’s gorgeous red dress, and her fangs. (She was a vampire) Wow, Fabulous ! She was convincing vampire! Bruno said, she was  “Queen of the damned was the queen of the night.” PERFECT 30

Jaleel White In the rehearsal Jaleel comes across as a really nice guy. Did a competent Viennese Waltz. I liked it. I A beautiful  song I Made the Most of Loving you. Judges liked the story he conveyed, but not his technique.

They put the dancers on teams to get some extra points for each of them. More Vivaldi for Team Tango. They were up first. They were wearing very cool black and white costumes. It was so entertaining! 27/30 They got 27 points added to their individual scores.

Team Paso They did the Paso Doble. Danced to Carmina Burana  It was dramatic! They had all the muscle men together. They did a neat thing with their capes. It was absolutely beautiful! “Fire and ice,” said Len. 26/30 He had that right. I enjoyed this Dancing With the Stars

Maria was first and Melissa was last! We’ll see who gets the shaft tonight!

Any comments? There must be some devotees of this entertaining program.
