Dancing With The Stars 2011: All American Recap
This week, the DWTS celebrities (I use that term loosely) had to dance either Latin or ballroom dances with an American theme? Really? How did they come up with that one? Let’s see how it all went down.
Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff did the Brazilian samba to “Sweet Home Alabama.” Len did not care for it. He complained that Ralph has been too inconsistent and it was a bit too Howdy Doody for his taste. (Which is what I think Len felt the entire evening.)
Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke daned the Viennese waltz to “America the Beautiful.” The dance routine had a nice Hollywood vibe to it. Chris got a 26 overall from the judges, which was his best so far.
Petra Nemcova and partner Dmitry Chaplin danced the quickstep to Elvis Presley’s “Viva Las Vegas.” They did okay. Okay enough to tie with Ralph’s score of 22.
Romeo and Chelsie Hightower did the fox-trot to “New York, New York.” I give this guy credit. First, he is a direct discendent of Master P. Remember him? The guy with two left feet! Well, he is hanging in there, keeping up with the best of them and doing good. He tied Chris Jericho with an overall score of 26.
Hines Ward and Kym Johnson danced the Officer and a Gentleman theme with a rumba to “God Bless the USA.” So how did they do? They scored a 27. His personal best as well as the best for the DWTS season so far.
John Travolta helped Kirstie Alley this week and provided her with some pointers. (Wouldn’t you love to see Travolta on the show?) Kirstie andd Maksim Chmerkovskiy did the fox-trot to “American Woman.” Maks went with the sex appeal to gain votes from the viewers and painted an American flag across his naked torso! Kirstie’s costume was a little less than flattering. Their overall score was 23. At least there was no mishap this week for Kirstie.
And to dance the 1,000the competitive dance for Dancing with the Stars was Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and Louis van Amstel. They danced the fox-trot and looked like two figurines on top of a Fourth of July cake. They received mix reviews from the judges and finished with a score of 22.
Last, but not least, Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas danced a samba to “Party in the USA.” This samba they performed was smoking hot. Len loved it, but they only received a score of 26. He hated their performance last week and they got the same score of 26! Can you figure that out?
