DWTS: Compare the waltz

Tony Dovolani had to wax his legs, but this week, he had a winner. His celebrity partner Audrina Patridge came through with two nines, the first nines of the season.

Waltz

  • Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani: 26
  • Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer: 23
  • Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas: 20

During week 8, Brandy & Maksim Chmerkovskiy performed to “Dark Waltz.” Score: 29 (9, 10, 10)

During week 8, Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya performed the waltz to “Take It to the Limit” by The Eagles for a score of 24.

Week 9, Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas danced the waltz to “Mary Goes to Jesus” from “Passion of Christ” soundtrack for a score of 26 (8, 9, 9).

Week 9, Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough performed a waltz to “Way Over Yonder” by Carole King.

DWTS: Compare the sambas

Talk about sexy sambas? Three of the four teams were tied and Margaret Cho and her partner Louis van Amstel also failed in telling a clear story despite the storyline provided by the song itself.  Grey goofed on her samba and I didn’t particularly like the storyline.

Cho and van Amstel were eliminated.

Samba

  • Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough: 24
  • Brandy Norwood and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 24
  • Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke: 24
  • Margaret Cho and Louis van Amstel: 18

Week 8, Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas performed the samba for a score of 24 (8, 8, 8) to “Mas Que Nada” by Sergio Mendes.

Week 9, Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer performed a samba to “She’s Got Me Dancing” by Tommy Sparks for a score of 29 (10, 9, 10).

DWTS: Compare foxtrot routines

Foxtrot

  • Brandy and Maksim Chermkovskiy: 37/40 or 28 adjusted score.
  • Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough: 25
  • Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya: 23
  • Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer: 20
  • Mike Sorrentino and Karina Smirnoff: 20
  • Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas: 20

In this group, both Karina Smirnoff and Anna Trebunskaya came through with winning choreography. Mark Ballas had a story that didn’t make a whole lot of sense and the judges didn’t get it. Unfortunately, it was storytelling night and the lack of a clear story line made the whole dance problematic. Karina Smirnoff, on the other hand, came up with an idea that helped hide or took advantage of Sorrentino’s dancing deficits.

During week 5, Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough performed the foxtrot to “Love and Marriage” for a score of 25.

During week 5, Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer performed the foxtrot to the theme from “Charlie’s Angels.” Their score was 20 (8, 5, 7).

During week 7, Brandy and Maksim Chermkovskiy danced the foxtrot to “Fever” by Peggy Lee, trying to interpret the dance done by Giles Marini and Cheryl Burke during season 9. The score was 37/40 (9, 9, 10, 9)

Here’s a surprise, reality TV star Audrina Patridge was tops in the quickstep but not good enough to keep Tony Dovolani from waxing his legs.

Quickstep:

Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer cha cha cha

Don’t expect a back flip or front flip from Kyle Massey, but he has rhythm and a good sense of humor. The difference between hip hop and ballroom…apparently where you look at when dancing with a girl.

By the way, ABC isn’t sure how to spell Lacey’s last name. We think it should be Schwimmer. Maybe this season, Lacey decided she didn’t need the “c.”

This ABC clip shows Massey and Schwimmer dancing the cha cha cha and perhaps there will be some sexy innuendo. Can Massey pull it off?

“Dancing with the Stars” season 11 premieres 20 September 2010.
