Bruno is thrilled, and he thinks Kim's booty can do no wrong, although she had a misstep at first. Carrie Ann couldn't believe how she shook her booty, but she thought the solo was a little bit out of control. Len thought it was delicious, and that Derek was almost superfluous, but she lost a little control here and there. Some dude in the audience gets really loud and obnoxious yelling at the judges. Security! Get that man out of here! Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, and Bruno 9.
Almost unfairly coming after Ty's rumba is Gilles and Cheryl and their rumba. Cheryl even gets a little flustered during their rehearsal when Gilles starts slowly moving his hips. She works with him on his solo, but she's not happy with how he looks at first. Gilles really wants to get back to the top of the leaderboard. So their rumba starts. Gilles starts with his solo, and it's pretty hot at first. It doesn't hurt that they're dancing to Marvin Gaye's classic, "Sexual Healing." When Cheryl joins him, I'm a little underwhelmed at first. I'm not feeling the chemistry I usually feel with them. But then... the ending. My goodness. I'm fanning myself over here. Cheryl lies down prone, and Gilles lies on top of her and they roll around and... whew. I'm sure Len's going to think it was too raunchy, but damn. Right after, Gilles gives his wife in the audience a look and, oh boy. I think Gilles is going to get a million movie roles from doing this show.
Carrie Ann can't even be heard over the audience's cheering. She thought he delivered, but that he was trying a little hard in the solo, and he doesn't need to try to be sexy. Len thought it was fantastic, although he didn't love the rolling around on the floor. Bruno thought it was "ravaged by the savage" and now they need penicillin. Bruno has just gone off the rails. I think Gilles was a victim of hype -- no one could live up to those expectations. Backstage, Gilles thinks that maybe he did try too hard. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, and Bruno 9. Gilles looks very relieved.
Melissa and Tony have the final dance of the night with their samba. In rehearsal, Melissa admits that she's terrified of doing the solo, but she's happy to be back in the competition no matter what happens. They start with Melissa's solo, which is probably the best of the bunch we've seen. It's nothing too crazy, but it fits in with the dance. The rest of the routine is well-choreographed by Tony. I still don't read sexiness from Melissa, but her technique is really good, especially considering that she's dancing injured. I know the judges will like this routine, but I'd still like to see a little more personality from Melissa. After they finish, Melissa is sort of squealing. I think she got hit in the mouth at some point? I thought I heard her tell Tony that she hurt her mouth. [I thought she was saying that her boob came out of her dress, because she had her arms crossed her chest afterwards. -- Angel]
