Latin night on DWTS

Posted on: April 16, 2012

Whew, just watching all that Latin dancing was hot, hot, hot! I enjoyed listening to Santana playing some of their hits during the show.

From the Salsa, to the Samba and Argentine Tango, the stars brought their “A” game to Dancing with the Stars. Except for a few – like Gavin DeGraw’s Samba. OMG! He was awful, out of control and even Len said it was more of a “Shambo” instead of a “Samba.” So right Len, first time I agree with you.

The top dancers, William Levy and Katherine Jenkins performed their Argentine Tango to almost perfection. They both received 29 out of 30. Donald Driver’s Argentine Tango was powerful but he had some technical issues and received a 27. He didn’t seem happy but I agree with the score.

As for the Salsa dancers, Melissa Gilbert, Roshon Fegan and Maria Menounos were good but not great. Maria received a 27, Roshon a 26 and Melissa a 21. I don’t agree with the judges scoring especially for Melissa. She had more technique than Maria did and Roshon was too fast and not really in control some of the time. Carrie Anne said that Roshon was sexy in a Disney way – what the heck does that mean???

The Samba dancers were Jaleel White – great dancing he got a 24 – Gladys Knight got a 22 and of course my buddy Gavin DeGraw.  I really hope Gladys comes back next week. The theme next week is Motown! I love Motown and all of its music. It would be a shame if Gladys misses that one.

Tuesday night there will be a dance off between the bottom two couples. My prediction will be Gavin DeGraw and Melissa Gilbert. Melissa will win and Gavin will be eliminated. Keep Melissa in the competition folks, she still has a lot of dancing left in her.
