So the challenge posed by the DWTS judges for this week was this: “show us something we’ve never seen before.” I have a problem with this for several reasons. 1) Len Goodman doesn’t like anything new or non-traditional. 2) This nice family show can’t do anything outside of the box! It’s not what their viewers want! 3) Bristol Palin.
Nevertheless, here we are at Week Three, which is Double Elimination week! The celebrities are in charge of costumes, choreography, music, everything. No matter what happens, it will be some show!
I wasn’t planning on blogging this season of Dancing with the Stars, but after last week, I feel like I owe it to the fabulousness that is going on. Not only is the dancing fantastic, every contestant is a fan favorite, making the competition that much more fierce. Unfortunately, Pamela Anderson left us last week, and her partner was Tristan McManus. Definitely gone too soon. But I still think she dances drunk, and it just could have gotten really, really ugly.
In case you missed last week, judges can award half-points this season, which should make the scoring pretty interesting. Other than that, the formula is pretty much the same, so lets get going!
So I missed last week’s recap but this is what happened: Jaleel White went all kinds of crazy and the judges handed out the first 10s! It was also “Personal Story Week” and I was a whole mess of tears. Seriously, I cried for two hours. It was terrible. But I got it together. I’m no sissy.
This is “Rock Week” and as we speak KISS is performing. But with all that makeup, I’m not totally sure it’s the original band. Did ABC only shell out for a cover band? Also, all the dancers performing right now just look like mimes. Not rock ‘n roll. In fact, this show has a very weird take on rock, and it’s basically this: one part black leather, three parts eye makeup, five parts no shirts, 11 parts hair extensions. Mix with 80’s classics, heavy on guitar. Shake and pour.
Oh, Lord. What is Brooke wearing? It’s like someone slit open a tire and made it into a halter.
