Okay, admittedly, I was looking for mistakes in that routine, because I'm mad that I felt the last team was underscored. The opening was good, although the women were a little out of sync. Rob and Cheryl's solo was awful. Rob looked like he was walking instead of dancing. Hope and Maks's solo was fine, but that was mostly because Hope was stationary while Maks danced around her, and her arms were kind of out of control at one point. She looked like she was going to fly right out of Maks's arms and into the audience. Derek and Ricki's solo was good, but again, like half of it was Derek dragging Ricki across the floor. They did their patented Derek Hough move down the dance floor in sync, which always looks cool. I'm sure the judges will give them 10s. And yes, I'm bitter. I liked the tango more.
Judges? Bruno says that it was powerful, moving, and dramatic. Carrie Ann thought it was amazing and poetic. Len thought the individual parts were fantastic. Okay, it's fixed. Because Rob's was terrible. I mean, it's a stupid dance show, who cares, right? I've got to get over this. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 8 and Bruno 9. Not sure why Len gave them an 8 if it was fantastic.
I'm fine with Nancy going home, because her individual dance was not good. But it's bullshit that Hope and Maks moved up to the top half of the leaderboard for that. Oh well, next week, they will probably have to do two dances and hope will self-destruct or she and Maks will kill one another. I'm going to go throw a few votes to David, because I'm worried. Your scores:
Ricki and Derek: 27 + 26 = 53
Rob and Cheryl: 25 + 26 = 51
Hope and Maks: 24 + 26 = 50
JR and Karina: 25 + 23 = 48
David and Kym: 24 + 23 = 47
Nancy and Tristan: 21 + 23 = 44
