DTWS: Elimination

Oh Dancing with the Stars. We're only on the second episode and you've already managed to tick me off. Not a good way to end your birthday.


As the show goes on, they will be revealing who is safe to dance one at a time causing some of the contestants to be nervous to the point of probably passing out. They better call Toni Braxton's name early...but who knows since they're calling names "in no particular order."

1. Lance Bass & Lacey
Dance/Song: Quickstep/"Head on the Door" by The Cure
Lacey makes unique analogies as she teaches ("Gingerbread Cookie," "Power Arms," "Prairie Dogs," etc.), which Lance digs because she's treating him like a kindergartner. It started a little rough but ended strong. He needs to work on his feet, they were a little off at times but overall it was performed well. They have great chemistry which will help them stick around for the long haul.
Judges: Len, once again doesn't like it. Bruno enjoys the fresh take on the dance and Carrie Ann was very entertained but not exactly impressed.
Score: 21 (7-6-8)

2. Misty May-Traenor & Maks
Dance/Song: Mambo/"Black Mambo" by Angel & The Mambo Cats
Misty predictably had issues with the hip movements during rehearsal but it came together during the performance. She did some solo work and had good stage presence. Her legs are great and she's got the raw building blocks but she's really got to work on her arms and shoulders and a little on her flexibility.
Judges: Positive feedback from all the judges with Len complementing her ability to work the crowd and Bruno telling her to work on her upper body.
Score: 21 (all 7's)

3. Maurice Greene & Cheryl
Dance/Song: Mambo/"I Do the Jerk" by Bill Pickney
Maurice is taking to the Mambo in rehearsal a lot better than the Foxtrot. I really like his exuberance. Like Misty, he'll have to work on his arms and shoulders but he's got the shimmy down pat. He really looked like he was leading. Oh! And he just did The Caterpillar! Word. Really good job, I can't believe it's only the second show. And I love Cheryl's outfit.
Judges: Bruno liked that it looked like he was at a party, Carrie Ann complimented him on his transitions, and Len, naturally, did not like The Caterpillar (aka The Worm). He kills me sometimes.
Score: 21 (all 7's)
