Dancing with the Stars: Week 5


Alright, we need to talk. I get it, Sherri Shepherd wasn’t the greatest dancer and I’m surprised she didn’t make it further because of her relationship with ABC, but my issue is Disney star Roshon Fegan being placed in the bottom two. What are you doing?! The kid, a bit annoying, is one of the best dancers on the show and you’re just letting him get away! We are not friends right now. You earn your way back into my heart by eliminating someone who should be eliminated Tuesday night.

Nevertheless, I can’t stay mad forever because we need to discuss tonight’s dancing. Latin night brought some of the best dances of the season and definitely caused peoples blood pressure to rise in excitement. Let’s review.

Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas: I love the Argentine Tango; it has to be one of my favorite dances because it’s so intense and requires a lot of talent. The singer’s Argentine Tango was perfect. I have nothing else to say but perfection. I loved it. Jenkins scored 29 out of 30 points.

William Levy & Cheryl Burke: Levy redeemed himself after a few missteps last week with an Argentine Tango. Excuse me for a moment while I grab some water and my husband. Ok, I’m back. Levy’s Argentine Tango was so sexy and pulsating with aggression and passion. Oh boy, I hope this man never leaves my life for the duration of the Dancing with the Stars season. I love the Argentine Tango. Hot guy scored 29 out of 30 points.

Maria Menounos & Derek Hough: The TV host suffered another injury this week practicing her Salsa. Remember last week when I told you that I think Derek just beats his partners when they don’t do well? Because every partner he’s had has been injured? Evidence! Right there in front of us! But, Menounos’ dance was fantastic. I actually felt the first part of the dance, the part before the kiss, was better than the second half. The first half of the dance was filled with sex, and then the second part of the dance slowed down and became a bit silly. But that’s not the fault of Menounos. She is a fantastic dancer and will make it very far. Her Salsa was sultry and hot, but that’s what happens when hot half naked people rub up against each other. She scored 27 out of 30 points.

Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd: Football players really do make the best dancers, and Driver proved that this week with his Argentine Tango. I’m sorry if this is becoming repetitive but I love the Argentine Tango. Driver was so smooth and in control during his dance. His lifts were fantastic. The whole time I was thinking “she must not weight that much” but they were amazing. I thought the dance would be better but I was satisfied. Driver scored 27 out of 30 points.

Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower: Alright America, why the hell did this kid wind up in the bottom two last week? Explain! Is it because he’s got the kind of talent that makes you want to punch him in the face? I don’t get it. Fegan danced the Salsa Monday night and he was fantastic. He hit every mark and was constantly on beat. I love watching this kid dance. Be smart people, vote for him. Fegan scored 26 out of 30 points.

Jaleel White & Kym Johnson: The first week of the show was White’s best week. Since then he hasn’t been very good, in fact he’s been kind of annoying. Monday night his Samba was boring and nothing special. The dance had its good moments, but it also had its sloppy moments. He’s just so inconsistent. He has the potential to be a great dancer but seems to not care enough. He scored 24 out of 30 points.

Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus: The music legend performed the Samba Monday night. Knight isn’t the best dancer but I have so much respect for her because she is an amazing performer and gets through every dance with a smile on her face. Considering her age and the dances she has to get through week after week, the woman is a rock. Knight scored 22 out of 30 points.

Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: The TV icon recovered after her head injury last week and performed a fun Samba. Gilbert has a problem with controlling herself while she dances. She hits her marks and does a fantastic job, but there are times where she gets so excited she gets too ahead of herself and loses the rhythm of the dance. During the Samba she got very hyper but she managed to stay on track. Since the beginning of the show she’s had to perform quick dances, and if she stays in the competition I’m again going to express, I’m excited to see her perform a Waltz. She scored 21 out of 30 points.

Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff: The singer was saved last week and danced the Samba. I really like DeGraw and I’m happy he’s made it this far because you know how hard he’s trying, but he’s not making it past elimination tomorrow. His dance wasn’t great but watching him dance with joy made me enjoy it so much. He struggled through it but his smile made it all so worth it. DeGraw scored 19 out of 30 points.

Isn’t this season great?! The past few seasons, two weeks in we knew who was going to win, but this season anybody can win. Anybody can also go home which has also been proven. So who is in the bottom two Tuesday night and has to perform a dance off?

I think this week Jaleel White and Gavin DeGraw will face each other in the dance off, ultimately sending DeGraw home. He’s made it farther than any of us thought and it’s time for him to go. If he stays in I’ll be happy but it’s time.

Who do you think will face elimination Tuesday night?

Tune in for Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night at 9pm ET on ABC.
