The classical theme continues on tonight's Dancing With the Stars, as the show opens with a souped up performance of "Walk This Way" featuring rock n roll violinist David Garrett and the expanded orchestra.
I'm still recovering when it's time for the first results: Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff are safe. Hines Ward and Kym Johnson are, as well. This leaves Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas, the highest-scoring couple, in jeopardy. Interesting.
In fact, the requested reprisal is "the dance of the night," according to Len: Chelsea and Mark's Harry Potter-esque performance.
Next up, Jennifer Hudson hits the stage for musical interlude No. 2, accompanied by Karina and Louis. Everyone on stage looks fantastic.
More results: Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke are safe, as are Romeo and Chelsie Hightower. This leaves Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin in jeopardy.
Tonight's Macy's Stars of Dance performance is a lovely presentation from Swan Lake.
Jennifer Hudson returns to sing "Feelin' Good" and give the expanded orchestra another chance to jam before classical week ends. One of the two couples is totally the married ballroom dances from two seasons ago on So You Think You Can Dance, Ashlee and Ryan. More reality TV synergy!
More results: First, we see some footage from last night, which includes Kendra Wilkinson telling the judges that she didn't care about elegance, Louis telling her that her comments disappointed him, and her telling the camera how embarassed she was and that she wanted to hide. (This didn't stop her from telling Brooke Burke earlier tonight that she was out of it yesterday for hormonal reasons. Oh come on.) Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are safe, as are Kendra and Louis van Amstel, which leaves Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya in jeopardy.
Final results: Petra and Dmitry are safe. The ousted couple is Sugar Ray and Anna, leaving Chelsea and Mark safe (and Mark looking like his head is going to explode).
Sugar Ray says he is going to cherish the moments he has had on the show. He talks about how much he loves the show and its spirit and what it stands for. Anna says they had so much fun working together, and that she still can't believe this boxer went to ballet class.
What do you think about the results?
