The Dance: The tango. Mel and Maks make goofy faces at each other before the dance starts, which is actually kind of cute. I like to see Maks not taking himself so seriously. Mel look like she's thinking about the steps more than she usually does, like she's counting in her head instead of performing. I think it was a good tango, and as soon as the dance ends, Mel totally picks her underwear out of her ass, which cracked me up.
The Judges: Bruno thought it was "a really Scary Spice," and it was "strong and powerful." Carrie Ann liked the stalking each other in the opening, but she wasn't totally convinced by the dance. Bruno argues, and Len asks if he can have his turn. He says that Mel's footwork was great, and Maks is relieved that they got a good comment from Len. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, and Bruno 9. Are the judges colluding this week? Although I guess if they aren't going lower than 8, that increases the odds that they'll give three of the same scores. Anyway, second round up next!
Jennie and Derek Take Two: The foxtrot. It's a very Fred and Ginger routine. This is a better dance for Jennie, because there are a lot of arm and leg extensions, and she's very graceful with those. I thought it was really cute.
The Judges: Carrie Ann thought the posture was better, but Jennie needs to work on not sticking out her chin. Len liked that Jennie came back strong even after criticism, and their technique was fantastic. Bruno thinks Jennie looks like Veronica Lake, and she needs to unleash the star power she has within. Len disagrees, but Bruno doesn't think he was dazzled. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, and Bruno 8. The audience boos the scores, and Jennie laughs in delight at their reaction. Their total is 50 out of 60. Maybe Derek should start taking his shirt off like Cameron.
Cameron and Edyta Take Two: Cha-cha-cha. Cameron has some tight pants on and he does a little Mick Jagger homage since they are dancing to "Brown Sugar." You know, I really like Cameron and I think has improved a huge amount, but that was kind of slow and I didn't see a lot of cha-cha-cha. Not that I know what that means.
The Judges: Len says it was not terrible, which is kind of damning with faint praise, and that he thought it was wooden and not natural. Bruno thinks it needs to be more flowing and liquid. Carrie Ann points out that Cameron is fun to watch, but he needs to work on how he moves from form to form. So all three judges basically said the same thing. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, and Bruno 8. Cameron likes that the audience is booing the scores a bit. Their total for the night is 51 out of 60.
