It was the first theme show of the season:Â PROM.Â Â I was fortunate enough to be in the ballroom on performance night.Â There is nothing like being at a taping of Dancing with the Stars.Â The energy in the room is amazing! As an audience member, you get to participate; YMCA, booing the judges, etc.Â There were also quite a few celebrities in the house!Â I personally love watching how the show is produced.Â People have no idea how many people get things set up in the commercial breaks.Â Itâ€™s totally live so it has to be done quickly and efficiently. Below is the list of the couples in order, their voting number, the dance they did, the judgeâ€™s scores and my take:
–Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas– (1-800-868-3408) – Viennese Waltz- I thought that it was a nice dance.Â I think that there is still a little stiffness from Aly. Â Score: 7, 8, 8- 23
-Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess– (1-800-868-3411) – Cha Cha– Â Â How could you not love this dance?Â Yes, technically not the best but I loved it and I am still rooting for Andy.Â The judges were a little nicer. Score: 6, 6, 6- 18
–Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson– (1-800-868-3403) – Paso Doble– I love Ingo and Kym but I actually agree with what Carrie Ann said, which was that he needs to work on his core.Â And I loved that he had the women who played his wives and his real wife in the audience.Â And Happy 50th Anniversary General Hospital!Â Score: 7, 7, 7- 21
–Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb Savchenko – (1-800-868-3404) – Viennese Waltz-I thought this was a lovely dance.Â And her fellow housewives were in the ballroom to represent!Â Â Score: 7, 7, 7- 21
– Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough (1-800-868-3401) – Jive– This was so unbelievable.Â Because I was there, I saw this ramp being put together that Derek slid down.Â He practiced it once before going live.Â I thought it was the craziest thing that they have done on the show, but it worked!Â They were amazing. Â Score: 8, 9, 8- 25
– Victor Ruiz and Lindsay Arnold– (1-800-868-3402) – Contemporary– These two were so much better than before.Â The have chemistry and I am curious what he is going to do next week. Â Score: 8, 7, 8- 23
–D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke– (1-800-868-3405) – Salsa– I thought that he was better this week and they did their whole dance on this box. That was a little scary.Â I do agree that Len and Bruno were a little harsh with him.Â Score: 6, 5, 5- 16
-Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff– (1-800-868-3412) – Rumba– Let me say this, the man has quite the body and no one was upset when he took off his shirt!Â I thought the dance was great.Â I was sitting a few rows behind his mother and she was proud. Â Score: 8, 8, 8- 24
-Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani– (1-800-868-3410) – Samba– I do like Wynonna, but it didnâ€™t seem like she pushed herself.Â She was definitely not happy.Â Â Score: 5, 5, 5- 15
-Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd– (1-800-868-3407) – Cha Cha– Anytime you do the YMCA it is fun for everyone.Â I liked it even better on the results show because Bruno was in it!Â I like Peta and think she is good at seeing what her partnerâ€™s strengths are. Â Score: 7, 7, 7- 21
–Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy– (1-800-868-3406) – Viennese Waltz– This girl is really good.Â I thought it was very sweet that she dedicated the dance to her grandma.Â (Her grandma looks like Teri Garr by the way.)Â Â Score: 8, 8, 8- 24
Do you agree with the scores?Â Thatâ€™s why the voting is very, very important.
Tuesday night the Prom King and Prom Queen were named:Â Jacoby and Zendaya!Â They were also safe. But who would go?
Well if you thought it was D.L., his fans saved him again.Â It came down to Andy Dick and Wynonna Judd.Â But unfortunately, Wynonna and Tony said goodbye to the dance floor.Â I was surprise that her fans didnâ€™t get her through.Â She wasnâ€™t the strongest dancer, but I am surprised she went this early.Â Who will be gone next week?Â Â You never know.
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8/7c and Tuesday at 9/8c on ABC.
