Last week, the right person went home, and that guy was Mike something…a person no one knew and who was by far the worst dancer. He did seem to have fun in his two weeks and he knew that he wasn't going to get anywhere, so props to him for that. This week we have a bit of a theme where the stars have to pick a song that is emotional for them, and then work with their pros to create a story in their dances.
There is a segment at the beginning of the show where some unknown pros (the new “dance troupe” for the show) demonstrate what a good version of each of the dances featured tonight should look like. It is nice to see…I finally understand some differences between the rumba and the samba (basically, the samba is faster and more spicy, and the rumba is slower and more romantic).
Wendy Williams and Tony: Wendy is up first and this week she has a way nicer dress on today. It is very flattering. Wendy is dancing about a time in her life where she was sleeping in her car to achieve her dreams in radio. The dance is the foxtrot. Good lord she has some enormous cans. Work it, lady. The dance seems really slowed down…I don’t know if the foxtrot is always this slow? They are just basically walking around together. They are dancing to “Last night a DJ saved my life” which seems like a dumb song for this emotionally-driven week. The judges aren’t all about the dance. They think it wasn’t fluid enough, and that she got a little lost. Her scores are pretty low, 5s across the board.
