Week 7 — it’s time for group dances. But before any of the performances started, Tom had an amazing announcement. Next Monday, Len won’t be around to judge. Taking his place as guest judge…..wait for it….CHER!  It will be amazeballs!  I know you are excited but, right now, we need to discuss this week’s show. Remember, no one went home last week. Turns out, there wasn’t a double elimination, but someone was leaving.

Let me just say this:  What was going on with Carrie Ann last night?  She was a little loopy!  She said she had an espresso before the show but I think it was more like four or five!

Let’s see how everyone did:

Elizabeth and Val

Dance: Quickstep

Okay, I have to say that I wasn’t a fan of the UFO thing in the beginning. (Wait, am I turning into Len?)  But of course they did a great job because they always do.  Obviously, they had to be feeling the pressure since they got a perfect score last week.  Elizabeth had the politically correct answer and Val owned that he felt the pressure.  Those Chmerkovskiy brothers are honest!

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 9-Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 27

Voting Number: 800-868-3405

Brant and Peta

Dance: Jive

I thought it was a cute dance.  They smashed ice cream in each other’s faces and just had a good time!

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 9- Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 27

Voting number: 800-868-3403

Leah and Tony

Dance: Salsa

Leah knows how to shake it! Now what we didn’t know before the dance was that Leah had injured her ribs.  Tony gave her a compliment that she always perseveres.

Score: 9- Carrie Ann, 8- Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 26

Voting Number: 800-868-3411

Jack and Cheryl

Dance: Jive

It was a rough week for Jack.  Because of his disease sometimes he gets tired faster, but he made it work and even got a 10!  The 10 was from Carrie Ann who wasn’t quite herself last night.  She even broke the 10 paddle!  I’ll have what she’s having.

Of course Jack’s parents, wife and daughter were in the audience to cheer him on.  You have to love those Osbournes.

Score: 10-Carrie Ann, 8-Len, 9-Bruno, Total: 27

Voting Number: 800-868-3402

Amber and Derek

Dance: Paso Doble

Before the show last night I was reading that Derek might not dance because of a back injury. That made me nervous.  When they showed the video package before the performance, not only was Derek having issues, Amber was having trouble with her knee.  Knowing all that, they came out and gave a phenomenal performance.  I’m a little miffed with Bruno.  He should have given the 10…..just saying….

Score: 10-Carrie Ann, 10-Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 29

Voting Number: 800-868-3407

Bill and Emma

Dance: Quickstep

Let’s all admit we like Bill and Emma.  One of the things that Carrie Ann pointed out was that Bill’s hold wasn’t strong enough to sustain the dance.  He did get all of the steps but the hold is the core of the dance.  People booed but she really was giving constructive criticism, which I think is important.

Score: 8-Carrie Ann, 7-Len, 8-Bruno; Total Score: 23

Voting Number: 800-868-3409

Snooki and Sasha

Dance: Samba

Snooki also had a difficult week.  She is flying to and from New York.  Her son had a fever and she is exhausted.  She was having a very hard time getting the steps.  The dance was great even though she said she danced like a turtle. Obviously the judges disagreed with her.

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 9-Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 27

Voting Number: 800-868-3412

Corbin and Karina

Dance: Cha Cha

Can you say redemption?  After last week Corbin came back with a vengeance!  We know the boy can dance and he was on fire!

Score: 10 -Carrie Ann, 9-Len, 10-Bruno; Total: 29

Voting Number: 800-868-3406

This week the couples were split into two groups for the annual team dances.  The cool thing was they got to do anything they want.  Freestyle! I didn’t realize this but Derek has a winning streak with the group dances:  He has never lost one!  No pressure.

Tom did let everyone know that based on all the scores and votes so far; someone from Team Spooky Bom Bom was going home.  But that could change after the dance!  The scores for the team dances would be added to their individual scores.

Elizabeth and Val, Snooki and Sasha, Bill and Emma, Leah and Tony

I think they came out and did a great job.  It was a cute concept and definitely used their strengths.

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 9-Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 27

Team Foxing Awesome

Amber and Derek, Corbin and Karina, Brant and Peta, Jack and Cheryl

This was pretty amazing!  Corbin really got to show his stuff since it was free style.  When everyone was together it was in perfect sync!  And the judges agreed by giving them a perfect score!

Score: 10 -Carrie Ann, 10-Len, 10-Bruno; Total: 30

Tom then announced that everyone was safe on Team Foxing Awesome!  No surprise there.  The votes came down to Bill and Emma and Snooki and Sasha.

Now based on the scores it looked like Bill was going home, but no, it was Snooki and Sasha! Talk about an OMG moment! (My friend wanted me to make sure I stressed that it was an OMG moment)  Snooki didn’t take this well and was crying and said that she wished she didn’t leave looking like a Zombie.   I think most people found the new Snooki very together but still entertaining.  Now go get some sleep!

Until next week…..

Remember:  All hail Cher……

Dancing with the Stars airs Monday nights at 8pm on ABC.
