Only six stars left to compete in DWTS

Posted on: May 8, 2012

Last night’s Dancing with the Stars showcased ballroom and Latin dances for the six remaining stars. It seems that the Fox Trot was the headliner dance. Melissa Gilbert, Roshon Fegan and William Levy danced the Fox Trot with William Levy receiving the highest score of the night a perfect 30. Poor Melissa Gilbert messed up at the beginning of her dance and for that the judges gave her a 24. Roshon Fegan’s dance was simple and not very complicated but that was all he needed to do to get a 29 for his Fox Trot.

Donald Driver’s Tango was very powerful and he was very good, even Len liked it. His score was a 27.

The two ladies, Maria Menounos and Katherine Jenkins who is a wonderful performer, both danced the Viennese Waltz. Katherine’s waltz was excellent but the judges didn’t like it very much and scored her with a 26. However, Carrie Anne and Bruno loved Maria’s waltz but Len wasn’t impressed with it because it didn’t have the hold sequence that is required in a waltz – I totally agree with Len on that one, the dance was too theatrical for me. But Maria came out with a score of 28.

The second round of dancing was a lot of fun to watch and really showed the talent of the stars along with the professional dancers. It was a “trio” dance where a star danced with two other professional dancers. Right away I saw what a difference another professional dancer makes to push the stars to perform better. Melissa’s samba was sexy, hot, fun and she did a great job with Max and his brother Val. I also noticed that the height difference between Melissa and Max is obvious. If you pair her with Val, Melissa isn’t stumbling or trying to reach out of her comfort level but looks great paired with Val. Val isn’t as tall as his brother Max and seems to be the perfect height for Melissa. So if Melissa is eliminated, I would blame it on the producers who have in the past not paired the stars with a pro that is the same height as they are.

Donald’s Jive was great and he has really come into his own these past few weeks. I hope he hasn’t peaked too soon.

Roshon’s Pasa Doble was good but I liked the comment from Len when he said that he was watching two skinny fries chasing the ketchup bottle.

William’s Pasa Doble was also very good and had a good story line where he was Zorro coming to the rescue of the fair maiden.

Maria’s samba was more of a Bollywood type of dance and not really a Samba. Len didn’t like it and neither did I.

Katherine’ cha cha was fun to watch. I thought it got a bit too busy .But at the beginning of the dance a piece of her costume was caught on her leg. But Katherine being a great performer continued on and at the right moment that included a kick, she kicked it off.

The elimination night will eliminate two stars. This is getting really hard to predict. All the stars performed at their top of the game. My preference for elimination is Maria and Roshon. Many of the dances Maria performed were gimmicks and not true ball room dancing and as for Roshon he has worked very hard but not hard enough to win the “mirror ball” trophy.
