DWTS Season 11 is here!  Can we say exciting!  The Show starts with the Stars being  introduced.  Now, that I am looking at their entry, there are some interesting looks.  Lacey is a blond now?  Hmmm…  Also, I’m still adjusting to Jennifer Grey’s face being so very different.  This season, someone will  go home tomorrow night which is different.  Usually, everyone is safe at least the first week.    Video

Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani.  They danced the Cha Cha Cha to ‘California Gurls’.  I’m still a little surprised that Audrina is on DWTS fresh from The Hills.  My first impression of Audrina is that she is definitely a Contender.  It’s nice to see Tony so much happier this Season, cause he was pretty miserable last season.  For the first time out, I think that Audrina looked pretty good.  She is a little stiff, but that is to be exprected the first week and  she is the first Star to perform of the Season.  All in all,  Good Dance.  Len thought she danced with confidence and technique and it was a good start.  Bruno thought she looked like a beautiful show pony that needs to be pushed to the limits.  She can excel.  Carrie Ann thought it was bold of her that she started the Season with a solo.  She is very impressed with her.  She can work with being a little more connectiveness to her body.   (MAC- 7  ) Carrie Ann-  6 , Len-  7  , Bruno- 6  =   19   800. 868.3401  Video

 Kurt Warner and Anna Trebrunskaya:  They danced a Viennese Waltz to ‘This Ain’t a Love Song.   Kurt comes across as really likeable and he is definitely a family man with 7 kids.  I thought that Kevin moved pretty well.  He is going to tone down those Jazz hands that he has going on at times, but otherwise, good dance and I enjoyed watching him.  He ends the dance with Kisses his wife for the finale.  Nice.  Bruno thought he was a natural and graceful Quarterback.  He liked that he is light on his feel and everyone likes him.  Great potential.  Carrie Ann sees potential.  He has an easy connection to the Audience and Anna.  Len is at it again.  He didn’t like it and he doesn’t see why the other Judges liked it.  He says that ‘he found little in it to commend and he found it Awkward.  Oh…. He’s trying to be nice.     (MAC-7   ) Carrie Ann-  7 , Len-  5  , Bruno- 7  = 19   800. 868.3408  Video

Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer:  They danced a Cha Cha to ‘My First Kiss’.   I always like to see the Disney Stars all grown up and when they are  likeable that is a plus.  He still looks so young.  I really enjoyed Kyle’s dance.  It was a whole lotta fun.   Okay, he had a  few Michael Jackson moments in there.    He is definitely going to have to work on fine tuning his movements, but he’s got heart and he moved very  well.  Oh wow, he is a Ham and a half.  Carrie Ann says that he is officially her first crush of the season.  She thought Kyle was Fantastical.  Len liked it (what)!  He didn’t like the skit at the beginning, but he enjoyed everything else  He would like to see a different persona next week in his Quick Step, but if he brings that evergy, he will do just fine.  Bruno loved him.  He thought that he was devine Naughty little Entertainer and Bruno wants to take him home…… (MAC-  7 ) Carrie Ann- 8  , Len-  7  , Bruno-  8 =  23   800. 868.3403  Video

Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke:  They danced a Viennese Waltz to ‘Crazy‘.  Rick (my my my) Fox is just nice to look at, but his height is a serious issue and Rick calls it his worst nightmare on the Dance floor.  Wow, He is pretty graceful out there and did I mention that he is so nice to look at?  Oh and girlfriend Eliza  is there and his daughter.  Nice.  Len says that Rick could be his twin.  The height didn’t get in the way at all for Len.  Smoothness.  Elegant  Great posture.  Bruno is hyped about the Quarterback against the Basketball player.  Carrie Ann thinks he is a Fox and she would like to call him Mr. Fox.  She thought it was amazing.  So much grace and elegance.  Rick had her sitting up.   She was blown away.  His lines were so straight.  He is just Fine….all around.      (MAC- 9  ) Carrie Ann-  8 , Len-  7  , Bruno- 7  =  22    800. 868.3404  Video

Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel:  They danced a Viennese Waltz to ‘We Are The Champions’  I like Margaret Cho, she cracks me up.  Margaret reveals that she thought that she would be more graceful than she is and when she was young she stopped Ballet classes after being told that she was the fattest Ballerina (how mean).  She’s hoping that she is a lady for this dance.  Okay….Her dress is very dramatic with some wings or something.  It keeps getting in her way…is that part of their skit, cause she is a funny lady?  Not a good idea, it takes away from the dance.  I think that Margaret can dance, she doesn’t need to do too much with the funny lady skits.  At times, she looks really pissed when she dances or maybe it is just nerves?    Bruno prettty much summed it up when he asked, ‘What the hell was that?  He thought that she looked like The Last Air Bender with some of that winged arm action, which he didn’t think worked either.  Carrie thought the wing thing was a very bold choice, but she doesn’t know if it was a good choice.   It was a little overly dramatic and it needed to be toned down.  Len was encouraged about her dancing in the beginning.  But he thought that  this was an inappropriate dance to bring the skit into.  He thinks that she can dance really well and he would like to see more dancing.    (MAC- 5  ) Carrie Ann-5   , Len-  5  , Bruno-  5 =  15   800. 868.3405  Video

Brandy and Maks Chmerkoviskiy:  They danced a Viennese Waltz to ‘Cry Me Out’.  Brandy says that she has wanted to do DWTS for sometime.  She  thinks that Maks is super hot (me too).  Maks thinks that Brandy is really hard on herself and he likes that in an partner.  Brandy looked really good tonight on the dance floor.  Very graceful and light on her feet.  Most importantly she looked like she was having fun.  Her family is there.  Carrie Ann thought it was beautiful.  She has to smooth it out.  Her lines are gorgeous.  Len thought she made a fantastic impression.  Fabulous.  Bruno thought she was electrifying.  He says that he loves the taste of a little Brandy in the evening.  He can’t wait to see next week’s performance.  Brandy says that she didn’t have a lot of dance experience.  Even though Brandy was an Entertainer, she wasn’t a Dancer, so this is new territory for her.   (MAC- 8  ) Carrie Ann-  7 , Len-  8  , Bruno- 8  =  800. 868.3406  Video

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas:  They danced a Cha Cha to ‘Mama told me not to come’.  Bristol says that this is the most frightening thing that she has ever done and she is really shy.  Bristol is a litlle stiff, but she looked like she had a lot of fun.  You can tell that she is shy.  Since she is not an entertainer, I think that she did pretty well to go out in front of America and shake her groove thing for the first time.  Tons better than Kate Gosselin who was in a similar situation last season.    Len thought it was a very acceptable performance for the first week.  He advised her to Loosen up.  Bruno acknowledged this was virgin territory for her.  She has to work on the performance & focus  and she will get better.  Carrie Ann admits that  she thought that Bristol would be boring.  She was wrong, because Bristol can move her hips.  She sees a future for her.      (MAC- 6  ) Carrie Ann- 6  , Len- 6   , Bruno-6   =   18  800. 868.3407  Video

Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas:  They danced a ‘Cha Cha’ to ‘Kiss Me Honey, honey Kiss me’  Florence Henderson is 76!  Wow!  She started on Broadway.  I didn’t know that.  She is a favorite.  Florence wants to be able to really do the dances, even though she knows that she will be compared to Cloris Leachman.  Go Mrs. Brady.  She is super sassy.  I enjoyed it.  Bruno thinks she a Spunky Lady.  Florence marks his accent for laughs.  He thinks she looked a little insecure at times and she needs to work on technique.  Carrie Ann thought she was having the times of her life.  She does have to work on the technique.  Len thought it was great entertainment.  He thinks that what Corky has done with Florence is incredible.   (MAC-  6 ) Carrie Ann-  6 , Len- 6   , Bruno-6   =   18   800. 868.3409  Video

Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower:  They danced a Viennese Waltz to ‘Life After You’.  Michael has been wanting to do DWTS for some time.  He is on tour right now, so this Season will be challenging for him.  Michael did pretty well.  He seemed like he was counting and concentrating sometimes and he is going to have to work on the technique.  But, he really looked like he was having a great time.  Carrie Ann felt that Chelsie was leading too much.  He has to be the frame for her, not the other way around.  She would like to see him smile.  Len thought that he has to improve his posture.  He thought he moved well and he had great musicality.  Bruno thought that he can be tight at times, but then he relaxed and did better.  His posture is better when he is relaxed.  (MAC- 5  ) Carrie Ann- 6  , Len-  5  , Bruno- 5  =  16  800. 868.3402  Video

Mike Sorrentino and Karina Smirnoff:  They danced a Cha Cha to ‘Break Your Heart’.  The Situation (I can’t believe that I’m calling him that) is very proud of  his body, but he is going to have to do more than show his abs to impress the Judges.  He only had 5 days to practice after he  finishing ‘Jersey Shore’ Taping.  For the amount of time that he had to practice, I thought that he did okay.  Definitely, it has to be better next week.  You could tell that there was alot of filler moves complete with John Travolta ‘Saturday Night Fever’ moves.  Len thinks he has potential.  He is under rehearsed so it is hard to Judge.  He is looking forward to next week.  Bruno sees a spark there, it may be talent.  He has to apply himself.  Carrie Ann would like to see him next week.  He has to lose the 80’s moves.   (MAC-5   ) Carrie Ann- 5  , Len-5    , Bruno-5   =  15  800. 868.3410  Vide0

Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough:  They danced a Viennese Waltz to ‘These Arms of Mine’  Jennifer is best known for being ‘Baby’ in ‘Dirty Dancing’.  The song she is performing to is ‘These Arms of Mine’ and it is from the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack.  Jennifer gets very emotional and has to take a moment to think about her late Co-star.  Man, she looks like an entirely different person.  But, I thought that she did a good job with her Waltz.  Bruno thought that Baby is back where she belongs and that someone up there is proud of her.  Beautiful.  Carrie Ann thought that Jennifer has gotten better with age.    She feels that something profound just happend here.  Len thought the dance suited her.  He is waiting for next week to see how she can jive.    (MAC- 7  ) Carrie Ann-  8 , Len-   8 , Bruno-8  =24    800. 868.3411  Video

David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnson:  They danced a Cha Cha to Sex Bomb. David is cracking me up in rehearsal.  How many years ago was ‘Baywatch’ on?  Okay David is the contestant who will face the biggest challenges this season.  He’s got heart and he is definitely in it, but the hip action is way too much….  Carrie Ann is laughing. (len’s head is in his hands)  She says that David reminded her of the offspring of Donny Osmond and Jerry Springer.  She could tell that it felt sexy to him, but….. (she left it at that)  Len feels it is never to early to panic.  He enjoyed that it was entertaining, but he is concerned about next week.  He thinks he will go for a few weeks with the slapstick.  Has to work on technique.   Bruno didn’t think there was any dancing.  No timing.  It was a potpourri of insanity. No dancing.  He needs to focus on dancing.  Awww, David’s Dad is in the audience.    (MAC-   ) Carrie Ann- 5  , Len-  5  , Bruno-  5 =   15   800. 868.3412  Video
