By Week 5, it’s pretty clear that the two with the most talent on the “Dancing With the Stars” stage this season are Evan Lysacek and Nicole Scherzinger.
And that means that each week it’s turning into an all-out battle between the Olympic gold medalist and the Pussy Cat Doll.
On Monday (April 19), it’s Scherzinger who edges out Lysacek with a 29/30 for her tango to “Pretty Woman” — including 10s from both Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Len Goodman sticks with a 9, even though he declares it her “best dance” and even “the best dance of the season.”
Tonioli is especially effusive in his praise, jumping out of his seat to exclaim, “Two players at the top of their game! Riding the fine line between love and hate, bursting with sexual tension!”
Lysacek pulls off a respectable 27/30 (9-9-9) for his rumba to “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” (“Armageddon”). The ice skater is the last to perform, and that means rushed commentary from the judges. Tonioli gives him a “superb,” Inaba notes his “tender sophistication,” and Goodman doles out a “well done, Evan.”
Who do YOU think has more talent? Do you think one of these two will take home the grand prize?
