Last week, Wendy left, and in my opinion, wasn’t very gracious about her partner, Tony. I don’t even like Tony that much but she was over the top. This week is Classical Week, so the orchestra has doubled in size and we’ll all be getting a lesson in culture. I’m actually kind of looking forward to this; I hate when they try to shoehorn a dance into a song that doesn’t fit just because the song is popular. And it will all happen LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE! Hey, Tom is back to saying that!
Tom and Brooke do the intro and the couples enter. After a clip package assuring us how difficult the task is for the couples this week, the pro troupe enters to demonstrate the various dances of the week, starting with the paso doble. They’re accompanied by the orchestra and a rock and roll violinist. Look they said it, not me. I don’t know what that means. Maybe he can play like the Devil in “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”? And have I mentioned what bulls*** that song is? The Devil’s song is WAY better than Johnny’s song. The Devil should totally win. Anyway, there are these torches surrounding the stage with flames. I am just picturing someone’s gown lighting on fire. On live television. Yikes. The rock and roll violinist needs a shave and a haircut.
Romeo and Chelsie will be first to perform. Romeo got some slightly negative feedback from Len last week, so he’s ready to tear it up in the paso this week, or so he claims. Chelsie has trouble getting him to be aggressive enough in his movements, so they go play basketball? Because he played Division 1 college basketball? This is like when they go to Sea World to learn…something about dancing. Anyway, he makes this amazing two-thirds court shot, which I’m pretty sure wasn’t faked. Was it? Am I just na�ve? So he’s definitely going to dance awesomely now! Because of the basketball.
