DWTS celebrates the 200th episode tonight.  It is hard to believe that DWTS has been on for only 5 years!

For the first time, our current season stars will be judged by Past Season’s Stars.

The Pros from all 11 Seasons  start of dancing to Beyonce’s ‘Crazy in Love’.  Nice to see former Pros back!  Video

Team Captain:  Season 6 Champion- Kristi Yamaguchi

Kristi’s team consist of Rick and Cheryl, Bristol and Mark & Kyle and Lacey.

Team Kristi danced the Cha Cha Cha to Workin’ Day and Night’Obvious Standout:  Rick.  Great number with great energy.  Len acknowledged this was a tough week.  He thought that they were the underdogs, but they have a quite a bite.  Bruno loved it.  He complimented Rick’s performance and pointed out that Bristol lost the stepping of the dance, but she kept up.  Carrie Ann thought it was a great way to start the show.  She thought Rick was on fire and that Bristol kept up. (Kyle is wondering if he is chopped liver)  (MAC-8)  Carrie Ann-8    , Len- 8   , Bruno-8   =24  Video

Team Captain:  Apolo Ono

Krut and Anna, Brandy and Maks & Jennifer and Derek.

Team Apolo danced the Cha Cha Cha to  ‘Bust a Move’.   Obvious standout: Jennifer.  I know that she has health issues, but she did this effortlessly.  Bruno is out his seat dancing with comps for the ladies.  Carrie Ann thought everyone danced at their best.  Len thought individually they all upped their game.  (MAC-9), Carrie Ann-9   , Len- 9 , Bruno- 9   =27  Video

Guest Judge:  Season 5 Runner Up-Mel B from (who gives Tom’s behind a squeeze to welcome herself back).

Kyle and Lacey will take on Mel B’s Paso Doble that is a beloved favorite.  Kyle has to be hot in this dance.  Kyle comes out with his vest open and he has drawn a six pack on himself.  Funny.  I think that Kyle has really improved with his technique, but I don’t think that he will be able to look out of Disney/Nikelodeon mode for another 10 years.   Wonderful performance though.  Len feels this was his best dance.  Mel B thought it was amazing.  He blew her away and she thought he was sexy.  Bruno thought that he had the attack and the energy of an untamed bull.  He would like to see his lines improve.  Carrie Ann thought it was amazing.  He nailed it.   (MAC-8)  Mel B- 10,  Carrie Ann-9   , Len-8    , Bruno8=  35=  59 out of  70  Kyle hopes to have Abs like Mel B one day!  Good luck!  That girl’s body is unreal!

Guest Judge:  Season 3 Champion- Emmitt Smith

Kurt and Anna will take on Emmitt’s Tango.  Kurt took Anna out to the Cardinal’s Practice to give her a little taste of what he has endured in an average football practice and to give her some insight into how hard it is to learn something that you are not used to.  Bruno thought it was mission accomplished.  He has to work on his posture.  Carrie Ann thought he brought an authoratative tone that she hadn’t seen before.  Emmitt thought he looked perfect and he looked good.  He saw something very special.  Len admits that he has been critical of Kurt, but he comes back stronger each week.  His moves could have been a little stronger, but (blah, blah, blah).  (MAC- 8), Emmitt- 10, Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Bruno-8=  34   61 out of 70 

Guest Judge:  Kelly Osbourne from Season 9 

Bristol and Mark danced Kelly’s lovely Viennese Waltz.  I think that Bristol did ok.  But this was truly Kelly’s dance.  She had so much personality and warmth that memory overshadows Bristol now and she pales in comparison.  Carrie Ann- finds her endearing, but she feels that she is still slightly detached, although she has the power to touch us.  Kelly thought that she stole her heart and althought she was scared she did very well.  Len enjoyed it very much, but they lack chemistry.  Bruno thinks that she is a natural mover and that she did well, but she can ignite more.  It can take years to learn (how to ignite), but he thought that she did very well.  (MAC-6), Kelly- 9, Carrie Ann-8   , Len -8  ,  Bruno- 8=33    57 out of 70.  Video

Guest Judge:  Season 5 Winner- Helio Castroneves

Rick and Cheryl danced Helio’s unforgettable Quickstep.   Pachuco…..which explains the very green suit.  His girlfriend Eliza came out and danced with him to remind him to bring the fun and goofy Rick to the performance.  Good dance and I really liked seeing Rick having some fun.  Len liked that he thoroughly enjoyed himself. He thought that it was good.  Bruno thought it was his best performance.  Helio thought it was incredible, but wasn’t too crazy about the fact that Rick stole the unrehearsed kiss at the end.  They give him the nickname The Jolly Green Giant.  Carrie Ann says that this is by far his best dance (MAC-9), Helio- 10, Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9=37     61 out of 70  Video

Guest Judge:  Season 8 Runner Up Gilles Marini

Brandy and Maks danced Gilles’ Sexy Foxtrot.  Go Brandy!  She brought it tonight, she doesn’t want to give up that top scorer spot yet.  Bruno thought it was a Foxtrot driven by relentless eroticism.  But, he noted  a mistake.  Gilles had goosebumps and he loved Brandy in that dress (that dress is slamming).    He is amazed about the performance.  Carrie Ann thought that it was very nicely done and that Brandy was sexy and elegant.  Len is surprised that Carrie Ann and Bruno are nitpicking about a little mistake when they just witnessed a fantastic Foxtrot.  (MAC-10)  Gilles- 9, Carrie Ann-9, Len-10, Bruno-9= 37      64 out of 70  Video

Guest Judge:  Season 2 Winner Drew Lachey

Jennifer and Derek danced Drew’s Tango with Cheryl.  Jennifer continues to learn new moves in spite of her injuries.  No wonder her body is wondering what is going on, she pushes it to the limit. There were times, that it seemed like some of those dips were too much and she was in pain.  Fantabulous dance!  Carrie Ann  felt that she came back after such a tough week in such a  big way.  Len thought it was really well done.  lines are beautiful.  Drew thought that she had Great Musicality and that she has a real shot at winning.  Bruno thought she was more splendid than ever.  She should have the confidence in her, she can go all the way.  (MAC-10) Drew- 10, Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9= 37    64 out of 70  Video
