It's Week 5 from Hollywood!
Our remaining pairs tell in dance the story of a memorable year in their lives. This is typically a pretty emotional night, and it has often brought out the best in our celebrities.
Before we get to dancing, we have a guest appearance by someone called Aloe Blacc accompanied by our pros and our Troupe, choreographed by Derek Hough.
They don't typically do this, but as of now based only on viewer votes, one of the ladies is in danger of elimination. I don't like that they reveal that before the dancing.
This one's for you, Carrie Ann!
Here Len. You can have this one.
I don't know who this fellow Aloe Blacc is, but I've enjoyed his performance snippets throughout the show.
Here's our leader board:
28 Christina and Mark
28 Corbin and Karina
27 Brant and Peta
27 Jack and Cheryl
27 Nicole and Sasha
26 Amber and Derek
26 Elizabeth and Val
24 Bill and Emma
22 Leah and Tony
And here are our results...Corbin and Karina are safe. Amber and Derek are safe. Bill and Emma are safe. Jack and Cheryl are safe. Brant and Peta are safe. Nicole and Sasha are safe. Elizabeth and Val are safe. Leah and Tony are safe.
That means Christina and Mark are eliminated.
That's really a shame. I enjoyed her progress and I thought she was certainly a contender based only on her dancing. But as you know, this show is also about connecting with the people who vote. If they don't know you to start with, you have to find a way to get them to pick up the phone for you. It's too bad she wasn't able to do that.
Tune in next week and check back here for encores tomorrow.
Remember I'm counting down the days to Blog Blast on 4 November with 30 days of Peace Quotes and Reasons to Blog for Peace.
It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.
Reason 19: Because I can't control what someone else is going to do, and sometimes I can't control my own circumstances. The only thing I have control over is my decisions...to act or not. I choose to act as a Peace blogger.
