Kim: B | Grade It Now!
It's Like a Kind of Torture

Carrie Ann thinks they are an "oddly well-matched couple" and she advises him to squeeze his ass cheeks together. And then Tom says that hasn't historically been his problem. So he's saying DeLay is a tight ass? Tom Bergeron! Bruno thinks it was elegant, and Baz loved the holds and thinks it was graceful. Scores: Carrie Ann 6, Baz 6 and Bruno 6 for a total of 18.

Whew! The last couple is Donny and Kym. In rehearsals, Kym points out that Donny is old. Donny has a hard time with how physical the routine is, and Kym convinces him that he looks younger when he does it correctly. Appeal to his vanity, Kym! That will work. And you know what? It kind of does. Donny comes out like he's been shot out of a cannon and bounces around the dance floor like someone half his age. His footwork is a little wild and out of control, but he sells the story of the routine really well, and he looks like he's having a blast. I would have liked a little more time in hold, but overall, I think this '60s-themed routine will really appeal to his potential fan base, which is smart. Plus, he's wearing a purple suit. You know, like he used to wear the purple socks? Anyone but me old enough to remember that?

Bruno tells Donny that it was well-pitched and well-executed. Baz thought the dance was accurate, and loved how Donny was full of life and in the moment. Carrie Ann thought it was an amazing performance, but she encourages him to keep up the energy and youthfulness, because it's working. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Baz 9 and Bruno 8 for a total of 25. That's about right.

So who's going home? Everyone is so bunched up that it really could be anyone, but I doubt that Kathy has the fan base to keep her there and she hasn't shown much personality. She should have really laid on the sob story or the family angle or something in her clip package. So I'm going to guess that Kathy will go. Here are the scores:

Aaron and Karina: 27

Mya and Dmitry: 27

Donny and Kym: 25

Natalie and Alec: 21

Debi and Maks: 21

Mark and Lacey: 21

Joanna and Derek: 20

Michael and Anna: 20

Louis and Chelsie: 19

Chuck and Anna: 19

Melissa and Mark: 19

Kelly and Louis: 19

Kathy and Tony: 18

Tom and Cheryl: 18
