Cue that theme music...

Posted: Wednesday, April 06, 2011 by Travis Cody in

It's encores and results, live from Hollywood!

I can't explain why that theme music makes me smile, but it sure does. 

We liked a lot about Monday's performances.  Let's see a few.

Chelsea and Mark danced what I thought was a somewhat technically flawed Cha Cha Cha, but I enjoyed their energy.  Click here if the video doesn't play.

Chris also had some technical issues during his Rumba with Cheryl, particularly with his hip action and his feet.  But he made up for that by providing a strong base as he led Cheryl through a poignant story.  Click here if the video doesn't play.

You all know how much I love a good Waltz.  Petra and Dmitry danced a lovely one.  Click here if the video doesn't play.

Dance of the night honors go to Hines and Kym for their fantabulous Samba.  Click here if the video doesn't play.


Outstanding work!

Let's review our leader board after Monday's dances:

25 Hines and Kym
25 Petra and Dmitry 
23 Chelsie and Mark
23 Kendra and Louis
21 Chris and Cheryl
21 Ralph and Karina
21 Kirstie and Maks
20 Romeo and Chelsea
20 Ray and Anna 
15 Wendy and Tony 

I don't know if Wendy has the fanbase to overcome that 5 point gap, but we shall see.

The judges select the Samba from Hines and Kym as the encore.  

And first results...Hines and Kym are safe.  Ray and Anna are safe.  Romeo and Chelsie are safe.

OneRepublic is in the ballroom, accompanied by Lacey and Dmitry.  Loved the song, and the dancing was amazing.

More results...Petra and Dmitry are safe.

Teen singer Selena Gomez performs her single Who Says, accompanied by Chelsie and Mark.

The Macy's Design-A-Dance will be Jive to We Got the Beat.  That should be good!  If you want, you can go to the website and vote for the pros and the costumes.

More results...Chelsea and Mark are safe.  

OneRepublic returns to perform All the Right Moves, accompanied by our DWTS Troupe.  Excellent.

Final results...Ralph and Karina are safe.  Kirstie and Maks are safe.  Kendra and Louis are safe.  Chris and Cheryl are safe.

That means Wendy and Tony are out.

I think that's the right decision, although I do wish she had gotten a chance to Waltz.  I think every celebrity should get a chance to Waltz.

Tune in next week when our remaining pairs tackle Classical Week.  I have no idea what that could be, but you can bet I'll tell you all about it when I see it!
Congratulations to Coach Gary Blair and Texas A&M.  The Aggies defeated Notre Dame 75-70 for the NCAA Women's Championship.  A&M rode a superior defensive effort and the strength of All America Danielle Adams for the school's first national championship.

Congratulations also to Notre Dame, who upset #1 seed Connecticut to earn a spot in the championship game.

    This is truly shaping up to be the best season ever. I wonder if they actually went looking for celebrities with at least some dancing ability/rhythm to make it a true contest.

  1. Maryfly says:

    P.s. I'm a Hines fan

  1. Akelamalu: I know!

    GGG: The dancing on the results show from the pros was really entertaining.

    Maryfly: Fly Girl! Whassup darlin?

    Jamie: Whether they did or didn't, they got them.

  1. Maryfly says:

    "Darlin" thud (something's never change) :)

  1. Can't say that I am surprised by the results. I think Sugar Ray may be the next one in trouble.
