Last night we got a spicy performance from Florence Henderson, and a knock-out dance from Jennifer Grey. But who will go home? My top guesses before the Dancing with the Stars results show tonight included Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Kyle Massey. And it appears I had good intuition.
The judges got to pick one dance to see again, and of course it was the performance by Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough. This is definitely the dance I wanted to see again.
The Goo Goo Dolls performed a special Dancing with the Stars melody. The songs included “Iris” and “Not Broken.’ I lost track of this band, so it’s nice to see them again.
The first celebrities saved included: Brandy, Audrina Patridge, Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey. Then Rick Fox was saved, then Florence Henderson.
A little video featurette was shown, where Len taught a session about how to earn a 10 from him. What was cute is seeing some of the cast members being taught and distracting him with paper footballs and gum. Len took a dig at his fellow judges by saying, “A 9 from me is a 10 from Bruno and Carrie Ann…”
We were then treated to a group tango performance from the musical Forever Tango. They cued up the red lights and gave us heightened drama. Oh-la-la. It made me want to watch Moulin Rouge.
Florence and the Machine performed “The Dog Days are Over” which is a song I really love. It was also the first song heard in the Covert Affairs pilot.
Three couples remained in jeopardy, including Bristol Palin, The Situation and Kurt Warner. Someone had to hang up their dancing shoes. Kurt and Anna were saved, leaving just two more pairs. The Situation and Karina were then BOOM – eliminated. Sad! Now we can’t make any more bad jokes about situations. “I tried my best, and at the end of the day someone’s gotta go home,” he said.
Host Tom Bergeron admitted that he hadn’t seen any of The Jersey Shore until recently, and after he’d seen one episode he asked his daughter if there would be any marathons on for him to watch more. So, The Jersey Shore has gained a new fan, and Dancing with the Stars has lost one pair of abs.
