Len pays tribute to Buzz's bravery in going to the moon, and he thinks that same bravery got Buzz on the floor tonight, even if the dancing sucked. Bruno knows he can't criticize a hero and a legend, but he will. Carrie Ann calls him cute, because old people are like babies, and she thinks he inspired a ton of people tonight. Scores: Carrie Ann 5, Len 4, and Bruno 5. The audience boos, but come on. That was generous.
Nicole Not Even Going To Attempt Her Last Name from the Pussycat Dolls is partnered with Derek. This doesn't quite seem fair. I mean, she danced onstage for years, right? She does that thing that every trained dancer on this show tries to do, which is claim that she's danced before but ballroom is totally different! Honestly! It's nothing like all the other dancing she's done! And then those people make it to the finals every year. Anyway, they are going the Viennese waltz. She's practically perfect. It's almost gross. She's a bit stiff in parts, and she doesn't really seem to get the character of the dance since she's smiling and Derek isn't, but these are minor things. She's really good.
Bruno yells and screams and calls it "a performance of startling finesse" and says that he's astounded. Carrie Ann thinks the bar has been set for the season, and she's never seen such a good routine the first week. Len found some flaws and points them all out. Thank God. Bruno and Carrie Ann are shocked, but I'm glad it wasn't just a tongue bath. Although it also could have been calculated so that the viewers wouldn't hate her. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 7, and Bruno 9.
Aiden Turner is on All My Children. I've never seen this dude in my life, but he's partnered with Edyta. He's kind of a goofball, and he's really hot. Unfortunately, he looks really stiff in rehearsal. So here's their cha cha. Well, he's good at pretending like he wants to jump Edyta's bones. He might not be pretending. And Edyta did a great job of setting up the dance so he just stands there and strikes a post while she dances around. He doesn't seem to miss a lot of steps, but his postures is terrible and he has no hip action. He sure is pretty, though.
Carrie Ann thought he was on the beat, but there was no flow to the routine. Len thinks he could be a dancer, but there was too much messing about in the beginning, and he did too much standing around while Edyta danced. Bruno thought there was nothing going on in the groin, and he was "stiff as a plank," which would indicate something going on in the groin, right? As they go to commercial, they show Pam Anderson and Kate Gosselin backstage. Kate is laughing for no reason and Pam is ripping up flowers and throwing them at the camera and then she just walks off and leaves Kate sitting there like an idiot. I like that Pam. Anyway, after the commercial, we hear the scores: Carrie Ann 5, Len 5, and Bruno 5. Backstage, Aiden seems really bummed.
