Cue that theme music...

Posted: Wednesday, April 07, 2010 by Travis Cody in

It's encores and results live from Hollywood!

So what did we like last night? Why do I ask when you know I'm going to tell you?

We liked the Waltz from Niecy and Louis.

We liked the Waltz from Erin and Maks.

We liked the Quickstep from Nicole and Derek, even though veered from the rules and was more like a show dance you'd see in a finale performance.

We're awarding dance of the night to the Quickstep from Evan and Anna, which unlike Nicole and Derek stayed true to classic style and was equally well performed.

Here's a reminder of our leader board after Monday's dances:

26 Evan and Anna
23 Nicole and Derek
23 Erin and Maks
21 Jake and Chelsie
21 Niecy and Louis
21 Pamela and Damian
20 Chad and Cheryl
20 Aiden and Edyta
15 Kate and Tony
13 Buzz and Ashly

We forgot to vote last night! We intended to vote during our time zone and split our votes the same as we did last week with some for Evan, some for Erin, and some for Nicole. But the national championship game was so amazing...we missed the voting window.

I know! Hard to believe eh? But it was Duke. And didn't you hear? Duke is the 2010 National Champion! GO DUKE!

OK...let's get back to dancing.

Just like last week, we're getting right into results. Aiden and Edyta are safe. Erin and Maks are safe.

The judges select the Quickstep from Evan and Anna as the encore. Hey! My dance of the night was the same as the judges. That doesn't happen too often.

Reba McIntire is in the ballroom and she is joined by our pros...Maks, Valentin (Maks' little brother), Edyta, and Chelsie. Now that I think of it, I'd like to see her actually doing some dancing in the ballroom. Hey Ms Reba! How about joining the cast in the spring??

More results. Niecy and Louis are safe.

Here's something new and's an acoustic Paso Doble danced by Mark, Derek, and Chelsie. But wait a minute. I thought Mark was injured and unable to dance for several weeks. Hmmmm...oh I see. Derek and Chelsie danced. Mark played guitar with another guitarist and a violinist.

Now that is what a Paso Doble should look like!

Here's another something new and interesting...for next week's dances, each couple will earn two scores from the judges. There will be a technical score and a performance score. One of the dances will be Rumba. Sweet! I like some innovation.

More results. Nicole and Derek are safe.

Reba returns! What about it girl? Any thoughts on dancing next season? Yes? No? Why won't she answer?!?!?!?!?!?!? Well, if you don't want to...can you ask Valerie Bertinelli if she will? Please???

Oh well, at least we get to watch Dmitry and Lacey in another fantastic dance. Rumba can truly be an amazing and dynamic style.

Results. Evan and Anna are safe. Chad and Cheryl are safe. Pamela and Damian are safe. Kate and Tony are safe.

Buzz and Ashly are in the bottom two, with Jake and Chelsie.

Jake and Chelsie are safe, so that means Buzz and Ashly are out.

You, Sir, are an American legend, and a true gentleman. Thank you Colonel.

'Ten-hut! Snap to! Salute!

Warning...there will be no DWTS posts in this space next week.

Wait! Don't cry!

It's only for one week. See, we're on vacation next week...YAY! My mom is coming up to help us put the furniture back where it belongs and do some more decorating. That means she's going to spend some of my money, at which she excels. And since we three all enjoy the program, we're just going to sit back and do that next week.

Later gang!

    I missed the results show last night as we were splitting the TV at work between the Red Sox Yankees game for one person and the UConn - Stanford game for another but I knew I'd be able to get the best wrap-up right here and I did!

    I'm still not sure why Kate Gosselin is still there as even though Buzz scored lower, I felt like he was trying harder. Ah well, maybe next week if she doesn't vastly improve??

    Enjoy your vacation and your Mom's spending spree! I'm sure it will be well worth whatever it costs you!

    Trav: Thanks for the summary. I had to work late last night. I pulled an extra shift and didn't get to watch any dancing. I know I can always count on you for the scoop! Luv that you're still holding out for Val!

    Was sad Buzz went. As Linda said...he worked harder (IMHO) then Kate...and does she EVER smile...

    You enjoy the vacation Sir...we will get by (barely) without your analysis
