Samantha throws it to a clip package about how the stars' lives have changed since joining the show. Ty went from the ranch to the makeup chair. DAG jokes that several dance companies have contacted him. Steve-O is just out of rehab. LT has learned to fit his life in around dancing. Shawn practices six hours per day. Gilles sees more of Cheryl than anyone else in his life. They all agree that they don't have enough time with day jobs or family. They all also agree that they're overwhelmed with thoughts of dancing, and they want to keep going. Okay, then.
It's time for the Stars of Dance performance. This week, we're treated to a performance from the cast of La Reve (at least that's what I think Samantha said). (She did. Just a coincidence that Maksim choreographed part of that show? -- Angel) Okay, you guys, I have no idea what's happening right now. There's a couple doing semi-traditional ballroom dancing in the middle and then around the outside are some big white dudes dressed in what seems to be traditional Pacific Islander garb? And then in the back are some groups of dudes dressed all in black who are doing basket tosses like in the final performance of Bring It On. Rinse, remix, and repeat. Maybe I'm uncultured but I just don't get this. I like my dancing traditional. Give me a quickstep any day. It ends and I am still confuzzled.
Okay, I understand Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus even if I disagree with the whole concept. I'm down with the youngsters. I've watched eight million episodes of iCarly with my nephew. But I do NOT get Demi Lovato. She can't sing. Is she like low-rent Miley? Because isn't Miley already low-rent Miley? Did we really need a bargain basement version? Anyway, she "sings" and there's "dancing" and whatever. The only thing that keeps me from fast-forwarding through it is A) professionalism (ha!) and B) what is someone falls down and I miss it? Sadly, no one does fall down. (The only thing that made me sit through it was that Lacey's better brother Benji was dancing... but I had to cover my ears because that Demi girl sucks. -- AC)
Samantha is backstage to talk to Melissa and Tony. Melissa has had a spray tan problem in her cleavage. Look, I just report the news. Samantha asks Chuck and Julianne if they have a home field advantage because they'll have the rumba next week and they're, you know, not doing it because she's Mormon and all, but maybe they've made it to second base. Chuck hopes that their routine will make Carrie Ann stand up and squeal.
