Before I get to the show I want to say that with a lot of class Tom and Brooke acknowledged the Boston bombings.  Aly’s home town is Boston and she dedicated her dance to everyone there.  The best thing about a show like DWTS is that in rough times sometimes you need something fun to take your mind off of things.  So let’s get back to the show…

This week “Len’s Side-by-Side Challenge” had the couples dancing alongside returning pairs of pros for comparison, including Maks Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani, Tristan MacManus, Chelsie Hightower and Anna Trebunskaya.  I wasn’t sure how it was going to play out but I think it made all the couples even better than they were.  Here is what I feel are the highlights:

  • First and foremost, the moment I almost peed in my pants from laughing so hard; on the results show, Brooke was talking to Andy and Sharna (at this point did not know their fate) and the two highest scoring couples Kellie/Derek and Zendaya/Val.  The two couples would be the team captains for next week’s team dances.  Brooke asked Andy if he were to make it through to the next week who’s team would he want to be on.  Andy says something about how great both couples are but he says he would love to be on Kellie’s team so they could call it Team Pickler Dick!
  • Another Andy Dick moment:  For his dance, he zip lined over the dance floor.  On the results show as they showed it again, you could hear what Andy screaming: Arriba! Arriba!  And the best part of this week was Andy wasn’t in jeopardy!  (Clearly, I find him entertaining!)
  • The first 10s of the season were scored by Zendaya and Val with help from Maks and Anna.  Len couldn’t give it up and would only give them a 9!  I thought it deserved a perfect score, because it was that good!

  • Someone has to go home every week.  This week D.L. Hughley was sent home.  I think this was a lot tougher then he thought it would be.  But he made it through the halfway point so good for him!

It was announced that next week all of the couples will be dancing to the music of Stevie Wonder and he will be singing it live!  Yeah, I’m happy! Till then….
