You know, the more I think about the scores from last night’s “Dancing With the Stars,” the madder I get about Kurt and Anna. I thought they were actually good — at least in the top half of performances for last night. And to score them second lowest? It’s a travesty. And I don’t even want to like Kurt! And here I am arguing that he was underscored. See what this show does to me?
Tom and Brooke start out by preparing to reveal some of the couples that are safe. But first, of course, we have to relive last night’s show. The highlights (or lowlights) included Audrina learning that she needed to point her toes harder, Maks thought their dance might have stopped Len’s pacemaker, and Jennifer Grey showed her age for the first time this season when she says that something was “dope, yo.” Oh, Jennifer. Don’t do that. I also just noticed that Derek is growing a mustache and goatee. Oh, Derek. Don’t do that. So Audrina, Jennifer, and Brandy are ready to find out if they are safe, and…they all are!
Hey, my least favorite segment returns – let’s hear what the live audience thought about the show! Not surprisingly, they liked some couples and disliked some others. Useless. So who’s going to get the encore dance? No surprise here — Jennifer and Derek. I agree. I actually watched it twice last night, and I rarely do that. It is flawless yet again, although they changed the opening. Maybe the piano player was like, “Hands off my piano, guys!” But it’s still really good and I know a lot of people get sick of hearing about how awesome Derek is, and feel like the producers favor him, but he is an amazing choreographer. You cannot deny that.
The Goo Goo Dolls are here to perform “Iris.” …
Time for more results. The three couples in jeopardy are Bristol and Mark, Kurt and Anna, and The Situation and Karina. It really should be The Situation. He was awful. If it’s Kurt, I’m going to be pissed. I wouldn’t mind seeing Bristol leave, as I can’t see her getting all that much better than she is right now. But there will be a commercial break first. I should have know they weren’t announcing anything, since all of the safe couples weren’t standing in the background.
Guess who’s safe? Kurt and Anna. Woo! Woo hoo! So who’s leaving? The Situation and Karina. Well. It was time. Everyone knew it. He hasn’t danced a step for real this season. The Situation says that while he was angry last night, but he feels like he left it all out on the floor. Then he spouts a bunch of clich�s like “it is what it is” and “at the end of the day.” Tom admits that he watched “Jersey Shore” for the first time this summer and immediately wanted to watch a marathon. I hear you, Tom. It’s addictive. Then everyone says the word “situation” a million times and it’s over.
