Its week 3 of Dancing With The Stars and the contestants all have the same time to practice makes them on equal footing.
I am very excited to see the contestants and their partners tonight!The first to grace the dance floor tonight on Dancing With The Stars were Denise and Maksim. They danced the Samba. Maksim thought that Denise was being too serious, so he dressed up in a hot pink samba outfit to get her mind off the steps. Great effort for Maks. Their routine was still too stiff and Denise look like she was scared to dance.
Len commented that the samba is the hardest of all the Latin dances and he thought that Denise needed more hips and flare.
Bruno said that the dance was so flat and full of holes, it was more like a waffle than a samba.
Carrie Ann told Denise that she shows all of her emotion in her face and she looked terrified. She also told Denise to work on her arms movements.
The judges gave them scores of 5, 6 and 5 a 16 out of 30.
Then real life partner Chuck and Julianne came out on the dancefloor. This week they are stepping up their game with the foxtrot and Chuck hopes to break out of Julianne’s shadow. Their dance was fantastic. Bruno said he was happy to say Chuck was in the driving seat tonight and wasn’t chasing Julianne all over the place, but leading her. Carrie Ann said that she thinks someone is showing that they can be a contender. Len said that it is hard to teach your partner anything and he thought the hold and posture was good, but not great yet. (more…)
Dancing with The Stars 2009 premiere had kicked off last week on ABC.
This week the show had its 2nd performance night and 1st elimination night. I’m going to tell you about the show’s 2nd week of performance and their 1st elimination round last night. So gear up your seats and be ready to be filled up with info!The first to perform where Playboy star Holly and her pro partner Dmitry. They were dancing the quickstep tonight. One week sure made alot of difference for Holly. She was very light on her feet and the choreography was cute! Len said that the quickstep is a very difficult dance. Holly’s posture was lacking and her bosum sticks out too much. Bruno said that Holly has to keep up with her partner.
Carrie Ann said that Holly was like a doll being dragged across the floor and had to work on being an equal partner with Dmitry. The couple’s scores were 6, 6, 6 an 18 out of 30 their total with last week’s scores is 32 out of 60.
Second couple to perform were funny man David and his pro partner Kym. David asked for a harder routine, so Kym gave it to him. They were dancing the salsa. The dance was more technically difficult, but still fun. Bruno said that his character was right, his hip action was poor and his timing was off. Carrie Ann said that they were lacking from being driven by the musicality. Len said that the salsa is a true performance dance, and although he performed it there was far too much of Kym and not enough of David. Their scores tonight were 6, 5 and 6 a total of 17 and an overall total of 36 out of 60.
Then red hot mama Denise grace the floor with her partner Maksy-poo. Maks told Denise that the judges were wanting Denise to bring it tonight and she was prepared to do so. They danced the quickstep tonight. She had a few mis-steps here and there, but her performance was so much better than last week. The jitters seem to be gone. Carrie Ann said that Denise had performed much better and for the most part was really great. Len said that there was a great improvement from last week except one moment where they lost a bit of synchronicity. Bruno said aside from a bit of a stumble, she did very well. The judges gave them 7, 7 and 7 a score of 21. With their scores from last week they now had a total of 39 out of 60. (more…)
