Aw, Hall & Oates are performing. Ooh, thank God this didn't happen the season that Adam Carolla was on -- they're playing "Maneater," and he has a big rant about how terrible this song is that I've heard many times. Also, Oates needs to stop dying his hair jet black. He's not fooling anyone. And also, I listened to "She's Gone" on the way home from work today and I was singing along REALLY LOUDLY and I had all the windows up and someone glanced over at me at a stoplight. Oops. So while they sing, Karina is all dressed up as the maneater, I guess, and she's dancing with Tony, Maks, and Dmitry. It's all VERY Solid Gold. I mean Karina is wearing a red spandex jumpsuit with legwarmers and a spangly headband, for crying out loud. And I just realized that I'm pretty sure this is a jitterbug? That was weird. At the end, Karina pushes the other dudes away and kisses Maks. Just like in real life!
Tom and Samantha introduce Adele, who sings "Chasing Pavements." Hey, that song is on my iPod, too! It's like they hit shuffle for tonight's musical entertainment. I love Adele. She's super-cute, and what a voice. I'm digging her fake eyelashes too. As she dances, Edyta and Alec do a rumba (I think). Man, they are all about the real-life couples this week. I do love the pro dances, though. It's nice to see them able to dance to the best of their abilities, instead of having to drag along some dead weight. I think Edyta and Alec practically started doing it at the end of the dance. It made me a little uncomfortable.
There's a clip package about the dance-off. Guess what? It's stressful. No one wants to do it. It sucks to have to perform an already low-scored routine. Hey, guess what, producers? None of us want to watch it, either. We already hated it the first time. We don't need to see it again. I was thinking tonight that they should have a top-two dance-off, have the judges re-score and then declare a weekly winner. It would be meaningless, but who cares? At least we would get to see the best dances again instead of the worst. They already used to do one encore performance, so why not two? Just an idea.
