Tonight during Dancing with the Stars, I felt like I was watching American Idol. The show was jam-packed with singers; Aretha Franklin and John Legend performed. Also singing was Julianne Hough, and I have to say, I was impressed. She has got a great set of pipes. I should also mention that amid all this singing and dancing, Kristi Yamaguchi, last year's winner and dancing queen, performed with former partner Mark Ballas.
After about 55 or so minutes, many of which bored me to tears (pleeeeease ABC, a shorter results show next season?), the hosts finally announced the results. Lance and Lacey and Brooke and Derek were proclaimed safe first (no surprise there!), and then Julianne and Cody were sent home (again, no surprise there!). That means Warren and Kym are the final couple in the finale.
I somehow missed the cute ballroom-dancing kids. Darn.
Here's hoping that next week's results show is a bit more thrilling. Perhaps Cloris Leachman will be back? I'll return with a recap of next week's dancing Monday. (By the way, I'm a DWTS newbie ... what are these "freestyle" dances that the couples are working on?) Till then, I'll leave you with my favorite dance of this season.
