After an emotional week and an elimination that made me happy, we are back for week four of Dancing with the Stars. Put on your leather jacket and crazy that hair up because this week it’s Rock week! The stars must pull off dancing to some of the most famous Rock songs. So who rocked their way to the top and who fell to the bottom? Let’s review.
Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd: Driver danced the Paso Doble Monday night. I love it when these football players come out and rock there dances. Driver was one of the few celebrities Monday night who actually brought the emotion needed for the Paso, and his movements where sharp yet had so much aggression. The Paso is Driver’s best dance so far, but hey, the guy knows aggression. Driver scored 27 out of 30 points.
Maria Menounos & Derek Hough: Is it me or do Derek’s partners always seem to find themselves injured? I think when the stars aren’t perfect in rehearsal Derek just beats them with a stick. The TV host danced the Tango to Schools Out. I thought her Tango was good but I was expecting something so much hotter and more intense. I’m actually kind of disappointed. Menounos scored 26 out of 30 points.
Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower: God damn these Disney kids, they’re always so freaking good at everything. So annoying. Fegan danced the Viennese Waltz. His dance was elegant, smooth and delightful. He lines were great, his technique was impeccable and his footwork was perfect as usual. He had a little misstep in his dance but he recovered with style. The kid is one of the best dancers on the show. Fegan scored 26 out of 30 points.
Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas: The singer danced the Paso Doble Monday night. Jenkins brought a lot of aggression to her dance, so much that it threw her off her game just a bit. Jenkins has proved week after week that she can dance, but this week she performed a great Paso that wasn’t on par with her previous performances. Her intensity was there, she hit every mark but it was just a bit too messy when it came to form. Jenkins fell from the top scoring 24 out of 30 points.
Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff: The singer danced the Tango. The Tango was his best dance so far in the competition, but I’m not sure if it’s enough to keep him out of the bottom two. He had good attitude, but his frame was very messy. I was impressed though with his performance. DeGraw scored 23 out of 30 points.
Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: The TV star performed her best dance with the Paso Doble. Since the beginning of the season Gilbert has had to perform very fast paced dances which haven’t exactly proved who she is as a dancer. Her age is preventing her from staying in tune with the faster dances, but she has shown she has potential in dance and I believe she will excel in the slower dances. She had great aggression in the Paso and it’s her best dance so far. Gilbert scored 22 out of 30 points.
Jaleel White & Kym Johnson: White danced the Tango to Mick Jagger Monday night. White performed a great dance but failed express the aggression and attack that is needed for the Tango. His Tango was too light and fun and not aggressive enough. He kept smiling all the way through. I get that the song is fun, and the week is exciting but for an actor to forget how to act is disappointing. White scored 22 out of 30 points.
William Levy & Cheryl Burke: Levy danced the Jive to Twisted Sister. His performance was exciting but he messed up. I was impressed though, he messed up big time, but while he never got back on time after he messed up, he recovered like a champ and pushed through. The beginning of the Jive was fantastic but after he screwed up it went down the drain. Still hot though. Levy scored 22 out of 30 points.
Sherri Shepherd & Val Chmerkovskiy: The TV host danced the Tango to Quiet Riot. Unfortunately the dance was unexciting. The Tango is all about passion and instead Shepherd tried to be angry but came off emotionless. She again missed a step in her dance and her Tango could have been sharper. Her Tango didn’t have that extra oomph to it to make it fun, she was just walking around the dance floor. Shepherd scored 21 out of 30 points.
Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus: Knight performed the Tango Monday night. Her Tango wasn’t very good, but I won’t insult her further than that because I give this women credit for getting out on the dance floor every week and performing with all her heart. Dancing to Queen was not an easy task but she managed to pull through. It wasn’t her best dance. Knight scored 20 out of 30 points.
This week wasn’t the best week for some but for the first time we have a new celebrity on the top of the leaderboard. I have to say though; the judges are scoring quite odd. I thought the scores have been a bit high recently but to forgive so easily for poor frame and mistakes is just not their style.
The question is, who will be the next star eliminated off Dancing with the Stars? I really want to make a ballsy prediction and say Jaleel White will be in the bottom two but I’ll just keep it realistic. I believe Gavin DeGraw and Gadys Knight will be in the bottom two and Knight will be the next star voted off. I would hate to see her go because she is a joy to watch, despite her lack of talent in dance, but everyone has their time.
Who do you think will be the next star eliminated off Dancing with the Stars?
Tune in Tuesday night at 9pm ET for the results show!
