Abbreviated Dancing results

Posted: Wednesday, November 12, 2008 by Travis Cody in

Sorry gang...I was really sick yesterday and wasn't up to a recap post during the show, although we did watch. Maurice and Cheryl had the lowest vote totals, so they are out.

The Final Four pairs are:

Brooke and Derek
Lance and Lacey
Warren and Kym
Cody and Julianne

Julianne returned from her appendix surgery in fine form. She and Derek were selected to perform the final Macy's Stars of Dance segment, chosen from a season long fan vote that picked the dancers, the dance style, the costumes, and the music. Julianne and Derek were the winners, and they performed an outstanding Jive.

You have to check this out!

I had some misinformation at the end of my Monday recap post. I heard Tom Bergeron announce that John Legend would be performing on the results show. That wasn't correct. It turned out to be country singer Brad Paisley. He performed his song Ticks, joined by Lacey and her brother Benji.

This is also a must see!

I expect to be back to my normal enthusiasm in time for next week's shows.

    Get better soon, dance master :o)

  1. Julie says:

    Hi sweetie! Glad you're feeling a little better. I'm so glad you watched even though you didn't blog in the exquisite details you usually possess. Fantastic bro/sis combos, huh? I did find it odd for Lacey and Benji to dance to a fun romance type song though. Julianne and Derek were phenomenal! I just thoroughly enjoyed it even though I had to endure the nail biting stress alone.

    Good show last evening...sorry Maurice left, would have preferred Cody go, but his tween-fan base must be strong.

    Feel better Sir...

    Sorry to hear your were poorly sick m'dear. Hope you're better now. x

  1. Travis says:

    Ivanhoe: Thanks.

    Julie: All the dances were fun to watch.

    V: It was down to Maurice and Cody, and agree it probably came down to fanbase.

    Akelamalu: I'm getting there.

  1. Dianne says:

    feel better!!

    I'm so thrilled Warren is still there :)

    and did you notice how upset Cody looked when Maurice was out. I think he's a sweet kid.

    looks of rest now

    Do you want me to bring you some of Chicklet's soup and jello?

    Wishes of health for your household too. Snuggle with Mr Tucker, that often helps.

    Brad Paisley.... SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

    I certainly hope that you are feeling better.

    Wish that I had warned you about the spider pics on my blog Trav. May I say that your fear is COMPLETELY justified... I do not EVER want to be bitten again.


    Be blessed.

    Hope you're feeling better. Always loved Benji on So You Think You Can Dance. It was good to be able to see him again.

  1. Travis says:

    Dianne: I think this is a good Final 4.

    Ann: I had plenty of snuggles and they did help.

    Sarge: It's certainly disturbing, and I did not mean to equate the comment with your views. Apologies if it came off that way.

    Katherine: Getting there.

    Songbird: That jive was amazing!

    Mike: Thank you Sir.

    Hope: Almost. I had a real meal so we'll see what happens later.

    Jennifer: No worries about the pictures. I read enough comments around the bloggosphere to be prepared when I visited. I hope you're doing ok after the bite.

    TC: Thanks!

    Lois: No CAKE for now...maybe next week.

    Linda: I am doing better.

    Turn: Thank you darlin.
