Dancing with the Stars - Week 8
|I'm watching this on my faithful TiVo this morning through a haze of snot. I've gotten nailed by a nasty, nasty cold with an accompanying sore throat. I'm drinking lots of tea and plan on existing on pasta and chicken broth for the rest of the day.|
Week 8 - Two Dances!
Ian & Cheryl - Foxtrot - Their chemistry and connection is getting much better. I really enjoyed this number, but I thought the ending with the high kicks was a little... odd. Judges: 22
Joey & Kym - Waltz - Very graceful and elegant. I was a little distracted by that pouf of cotton candy Kym was wearing, though. :D Judges: 26
Billy Ray & Karina - Foxtrot - I think Karina was smart to choreograph this number to a country song. It adds a definite comfort level for Billy Ray, and I think that was clear in his dancing. Easily his best yet. Judges: 18
Laila & Maks - Waltz - Lovely. Just lovely. Judges: 27
Apolo & Julianne - Tango - Fabulous! They managaed to balance energetic and smooth. I really loved it! Judges: 28
Ian & Cheryl - Rhumba - Good, but not great. Ian seemed a little hesitant to me. Judges: 25
Joey & Kym - Mambo - I feel a little like Len, but I just expect more from them. I was underwhelmed. It was frantic and wild, but not fun or coherent at all. Judges: 29
Billy Ray & Karina - Mambo - What a contrast to Joey and Kym. Billy Ray was awkward and uncomfortable. I know he tried really hard, but it just wan't there. Judges: 20
Laila & Maks - Jive - Bouncy and fun. I could see Laila getting a little tired at the end, though, because her kicks started to get sloppy. Judges: 26
Apolo & Julianne - Paso Doble - Honestly, the Paso Doble has not, as a whole, been my favorite dance so far, but I really enjoyed this one a LOT. Judges: 30
Sadly, I think Ian is going to see the ugly red light this week, along with Billy Ray. And I think it is really, really time for Billy Ray to go home.
