Aaron and Karina were sent home last week and unfortunately unable to make it into the semi-finalists.  Our couples still in the running are hoping to make it to the finals next week.  It’s down to Mya & Dmitry, Donny & Kym, Joanna  & Derek and Kelly & Louis.  Tomorrow night,  Alicia Keys and Barry Gibb will perform.

Tonight the dancers will perform 2 individual dances and then they will reveal a ‘secret weapon’ Knock Out dance.

Donny & Kym.  Last Week, his Viennese Waltz  was a pleaser but his Paso Doble was confusing!  Donny is a little stressed that he barely squeaked through last week.  Kym is pulling out the big guns, she brought Gilles Marini out to show him how to be in control and passionate.  Donny is aiming to making Kym and everyone uncomfortable with his smoldering sexuality.  I think that Donny did pretty well although there were spots where even I knew his footwork was a mess.  He didn’t sale the sex part, I just didn’t see the ooh la la quality and unfortunately, he almost dropped her.  Not Good.  Marie is smiling..Not good.  Donny is kicking himself before the judges even make a comment.  Len felt that it was a shame that he wasn’t able to deliver.  Bruno thought that he lost it and for the first time he couldn’t cover up his mistakes.  Carrie Ann thought that he handled the wardrobe malfunction well (her hem came out and got tangled in her shoe).  (MAC-6) Carrie Ann-7, Len-7, Bruno-7=21

Joanna and Derek.  Last week, Joanna’s Quick Step didn’t excite, but her Futuristic Paso Doble made them forget about it.  Brooke Burke came in to help aleviate the stress between the two of them.  They did a little role playing and Derek realized that maybe he is a little bit of a Tyrant.  They danced the Viennese Waltz.  Beautiful Dance!  I’m thinking they will score a perfect score for this one.  Uh oh, they hit a slightly rough patch, but the recovery is so nice, it should be okay.  Bruno thought this dance had the grace of Angels in Heaven, but she still had a slight hesitation that held her back.  Carrie Ann loves how Joanna has really grown as a statuesque dancer.  Len thinks that she has great posture and great choreography, even though there were some missteps, but overall, beautiful dance.  (MAC-9) Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-27

Louis and Kelly.   Last week, Kelly proved her worth and dance skills with both of her dances.  Kelly was able to stay focused even though she got sad news that her puppy passed away.  They danced the Rumba.  I don’t know what is going on with Kelly tonight, but she really seems stiff and nervous tonight.  Didn’t work for me!  Everyone is out their seats for her,  so what do I know?  Carrie Ann said that Kelly brought her to tears, because she makes her love her.  Len didn’t think that this was one of her best dances.  Bruno pointed out that although she is endearing, she has to push her hips and show her erotic side.  (MAC-7) Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Bruno-8=24

Mya and Dmitry.  Last week, Mya scored the first perfect score of the season.  They pushed it to the limit and have a whole new set of rules to prepare for their shot at the title.  They danced the Waltz.  Gorgeous!  Len loved it!  In total control throughtout.   Bruno loved absolutely loved it.  Carrie Ann loved it too, but she didn’t feel they were all the way connected this time, especially with the potential that Mya has.  (MAC-10),  Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-10= 28

The Latin Round.  DWTS provides us some insight into the background of each dancer.

Donny and Kym.  Donny’s showbiz background made him a natural for DWTS.   Tonight, they danced the Samba for their second number.  Donny is just way more in his element when he does the upbeat dances.  Maybe it wasn’t the best dance in technique, but I enjoyed it!  Bruno thought he came back and nailed it.  Fun!  Carrie Ann thought that it was better than the last one, but it felt a little sloppy for him.  Len agrees with Bruno.  He thought it was a complete Metamorphasis. (MAC-8) Carrie Ann- 8, Len-9, Bruno-9=26

Joanna and Derek.   Her humble background raised by a single Mother sharpened her determination.  Tonight, they danced the Cha Cha.  This dance was just okay for me.  Joanna didn’t keep up with Derek, I thought.  Actually, the mid to end of the dance, was much better than the beginning.  Carrie Ann loved it.  Great job.  Len thought it was great, lovely to watch.  Bruno thinks that she just oozes sex.  He thinks that her dancing skills are amazing considering she wasn’t a dancer when she started. (MAC-8) Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9

Kelly and Louis.  How Kelly’s rocker background prepared her for this competition.  Tonight, they danced the Quickstep.  I think this dance was much better for Kelly, she really seemed to enjoy herself and she was….uh oh.  Pretty big stumble there.  Anyhoo….great music!  Standing O!  Len and Sharon Osbourne are really happy with this performance.  She has blown Len away.  Bruno thought she was so light on her feet.  Loved it.  Carrie Ann thought it was fabulous.  Carrie is right though, there is something incredible likeable about Kelly.  (MAC-9), Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9=27

Mya and Dmitry.    Mya told her story how her life has prepared her for this competition.  Tonight, they danced the Salsa.  Excellent!  Standin O!  Bruno thought it was sensational!  Carrie thought it was hot beyond belief!  Len couldn’t stop looking at her booty.  He thinks she should be in the finale.  I guess so, then he can check out her goods a bit longer.   (MAC-10), Carrie Ann-10, Len- 10, Bruno-10=30

The Knock Out Dance allows the stars get to pick their own genre and music,  so there are no excuses, they have to bring their A Game. 

Donny danced the Jitterbug.  This was a perfect dance for Donny!  Bravo! Carrie Ann thought he got his Mojo back.  Len thought this dance was a winner.  Bruno thought it was upbeat and full of charge.  (MAC-9), Carrie Ann- 9, Len-9, Bruno-9=27

Joanna and Derek.  They danced the Salsa.  Good dance.  Len thought it was hot and tasty and full of spice.  Bruno thought it was delicious and flirtatious.  Carrie Ann loved that she generates heat.  Excellent.  (MAC- 8), Carrie An-9, Len-9, Bruno-9=27.

Kelly and Louis.  They danced the Cha Cha.  I love this song (Girls Just want to have fun), but it doesn’t work for this dance to me, although I think that she danced well.  Bruno thought it worked for him.  Carrie Ann thought she did a great job.  Len thought that she nailed all three dances.  (MAC-9), Carrie Ann- 9, Len-9, Bruno-9=27

Mya and Dmitry.  They danced the Cha, Cha.  Good dance.  The Knock out dance is so quick!  I think I need more to be sure.  The dance didn’t speak to Carrie Ann.  Len was disappointed because he wanted the dance to last a bit longer. (MAC-9), Carrie Ann-9, Len-10, Bruno-10=29

If it is based on the performances alone, I’m afraid that Donny is the Weak link!
