Itâ€™s Disney Week! I love Disney week. I really do. But I think the Disney stuff could have been cut down a little. However, there was some great dancing. There were also some injuries in rehearsal.
Before the dancing began twoÂ couples heardÂ if they were safe or in jeopardy. The first couple that was safe: Robert and Kym. That means Suzanne and Tony were in jeopardy and they danced first.
Hereâ€™s a breakdown of the partners:
Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani
Dance: Â Jazz
Disney: Lady and the Tramp
Phone Number 855-234-5611
- Suzanne almost quit the show but came out and did her thing. Things are pretty good. She messes up in the middle because her dress got caught on her heel. But let me say, if I look half as good as she does at her age, I will be a lucky lady.
Score: Carrie Ann-7, Len-7, Julianne-7, Bruno-7; Total: Â 28
Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson
Dance: Â Quickstep
Disney: Mary Poppins
Phone Number: 855-234-5609
- He messes up a little but I love this guy! We know he is safe but I truly hope that the viewers get out there and vote for him. He gave it 100% and sold it with his happiness. However, I think he’s falling hard for Kym. There’s a shot from last week included in the video package whereÂ they didnâ€™t realize a camera was on him…whatever cameraperson or producer saw that gets a kudos!
Score: Carrie Ann-6, Len-6, Julianne-6, Bruno-6; Total: 24
Three more couples come up next to hear their fate. In jeopardy:Â Chris & Witney. Willow and Mark areÂ safe. Patti and Artem in jeopardy. Patti and Artem dance next.
Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev
Dance: Â Waltz
Phone Number: 855-234-5606
- It’sÂ a nice dance. Who doesnâ€™t love Miss Patti? Even with a knee injury she pushes through.
Score: Carrie Ann-7, Len-6, Julianne-7, Bruno-7; Total: 27
Willow Shields and Mark Ballas
Disney: Alice in Wonderland
Phone Number: 855-234-5612
- There’s something that bothered me about this particular dance. I think the concept was too much and, subsequently, it overpowered the routine. I agree with the judges that Willow needs to work on her arms with more follow through. But she is a contender.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-, 8 Julianne-9, Bruno-9; Total: 34
Chris Soules and Witney Carson
Dance: Â Quickstep
Phone Number 855-234-5602
- After a really bad injury in the morning, Chris isnâ€™t sure if he’ll make it. But Hercules doesnâ€™t let an injury get in his way. Too badÂ the danceÂ is really stiff and it looks like he’s counting in his head. I agree with Julianne that he needs to get out of his head and work on musicality.
Score: Carrie Ann-7, Len-6, Julianne-7, Bruno-7; Total: 27
More couples find out their fate:Â Nastia and Derek, Riker and Allison, Rumer and Val, Noah and Sharna all found out they were all safe.
Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Â Foxtrot
Phone number 855-234-5605
- It’s amazing what this guy can do. He is doing well in this competition and he certainly has the charisma.
Score: Carrie Ann-7, Len-7, Julianne-7, Bruno-7; Total: 28
Riker Lynch and Allison Holker
Dance: Â Paso Doble
Disney: Pirates of the Caribbean
Phone Number: 855-234-5608
- It’s a really good routine but I did think thatÂ at one point Riker was going to pull Allisonâ€™s arms out of her socket. Itâ€™s nice to have those Hough dancing genes, amirite? (I know I say it every week but itâ€™s so true)
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Julianne9 Bruno-10; Total: 38
Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Â Samba
Disney: Â The Little Mermaid
Phone Number 855-234-5610
- So good! I love the fact that Rumer didnâ€™t want to be a princess but a villain. To do a samba to this song was a risk and it was a great one!
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Julianne-10, Bruno-10; Total: 39
Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough
Dance: Â Jazz
Phone Number: 855-234-5604
- In my eyes Derek can do no wrong. But I feelÂ like these two wereÂ a tad out of sync. But they were cute. Not my favorite but still excellent.
Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Julianne-10, Bruno-10; Total: 38
It comes down to three couples: Chris & Witney, Patti & Artem, and Suzanne & Tony. The next couple that was safe: Patti & Artem. And then there were two. The couple that has to go homeÂ is…
…Suzanne & Tony. Maybe a little of a relief to Suzanne but she said such nice things to Tony it almost made me cry.
Tom: â€œWeâ€™ll have magic at the end of the night to make one couple disappear.â€
Tom: â€œDonâ€™t get ugly yet, itâ€™s Disney night.â€
Tom: â€œThat happens every time when the director doesnâ€™t wear pants.â€
Bruno: â€œIn your own world you were in time.â€
Tom: â€œTonight when Len applies the band-aid at the end.â€
Len: â€œI have a bad knee, just throwing it out there to people to know.â€
Tom: â€œUsually Iâ€™m the whitest guy in the room.â€
Tom: â€œIâ€™m purelled to the top of my hair.â€
Sharna: â€œSuck it up princess. Iâ€™m supposed to be the princess not you.â€
So listen, I might be a bit nitpicky this week but I have a few issues. First I feelÂ the Disney Stuff went totally overboard, as I said above. A little goes a long way and when it goes too far it comes across a little cheesy. Also, I think it’s time to make room in the budget to get the original orchestra and singers back. It doesnâ€™t sound nearly as good as before. It’s something I haven’t liked butÂ tonight, especially, I noticed how average the music was. Sorry current band, you have to step it up! The good news is that there are many couples that could win the Mirrorball trophy and that just makes this season even more interesting.
Next week is a Spring Break special and Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing what happens then.
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
