Momentum shifts on a whim and what happens then is just part of the competition. Week 7 of Dancing with the Stars saw the stars step up their game after the smackdown of Week 6.
New bromancers, Aaron Carter and Michael Irvin, are gamers. With the game getting tight, these guys are finally showing their stuff. Aaron Carter and Karina rocked their jive, even getting a 10 from Len. It’s like Aaron found his “voice” on the dance floor (and that vein in the middle of his forehead). Michael Irvin is surprisingly showing progress in the past weeks and actually looks comfortable executing his moves.
Will Donny Osmond ever be in the bottom of the voting? His decent quickstep had several mistakes that he covered up so well and even then, I doubt Donny will in the bottom. Unfortunately, who could very well be in the bottom this week is Mark Dacascos. Talk about bad timing. Mark and Lacey were climbing the leader board especially after their jumping jitterbug last week then the flu bug hit Lacey. Without his usual partner, Mark had to practice with a video camera, Tony Dovolani, and eventually Anna Trebunskaya. In a week that Mark struggled, everyone else did well. Momentum shift.
Dmitri, don’t you get it by now? You and Mya keep getting docked by Len for incorporating too many gimmicks in your choreography. Just stop with the tricks for consistently high scores. It doesn’t get much simpler than scores of 9, 7, 9. I’m getting so tired of Kelly Osbourne’s sob story. Week after week, it’s the difficulty, it’s the anxiety, it’s the pressure, it’s the self confidence, it’s the crying. Then Kelly danced her salsa, Louie flashed his fancy pants, and momentum shift. Can you believe that with her Team dance score, Kelly is in the top three this week?
Lastly, Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough continue their cruise to the DWTS finals. Joanna Krupa ain’t no Brooke Burke, but she is definitely serving it up. Even though Aaron and Karina had the best individual scores of the night, I have to award my favorite to Joanna and Derek, mainly for their corny pre-dance intro showing off Derek’s fantasy.
Like last week, Week 7 features a double elimination, and it’s going to be brutal. Michael Irvin survived the dance off elimination so will he be on the bottom again even after a worthy foxtrot? Ditto for Kelly Osbourne. The one in real trouble is Mark Dacascos. Momentum shift.
