Tonight's Dancing With the Stars results show starts with some montages from last night, but we're here for the, well, results. So let's skip right to that.
First to find out they are safe are Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani. So are Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke, as well as Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas. Lastly, and shockingly, for this set of results, Steve Wozniak and Karina Smirnoff are safe. And Karina screams, she is so shocked, followed by some jumping around and hugging.
I usually skip over Samantha Harris' interview questions on the results show, but I have to record this one for posterity. She asks Woz if he's shocked to be safe, and he says, "I don't think I've ever been so surprised by anything in my life except for when I got served with divorce papers."
More results: Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska are safe, as are David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson and Chuck Willes and Julianne Hough. And: Lil' Kim and Derek Hough.
Next week's dances are the Lindy Hop and the Argentine Tango, which are demonstrated, sort of, by Cloris Leachman and Corky Ballas.
Then, it's Hall & Oates ... They perform "Maneater." (Carla, do you recognize them yet?) Seems a little like Hall could have used some more warm-up time before the performance. After the break, it's Adele's turn, with "Chasing Pavements." She sounds amazing.
Steve-O and Lacey Schwimmer are safe.
Holly Madison and Dmitry Chaplin are in the bottom two.
Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower are safe.
Denise Richards and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are also in the bottom two, so they'll be in the dance-off against Holly and Dmitry.
Holly and Dmitry are first, and they're a little better. Holly especially starts out a lot stronger than last night, and then the wheels kind of fall of again. But overall, it seems better. Len Goodman says she came out hot tonight and partied in the party dance, but he does point out a mistake "going into the running promenades." Bruno Tonioli says she is hot top, middle and bottom, but her timing wasn't fabulous. Carrie Ann Inaba says she brings a party atmosphere every night, and she's glad she kept her foot on the ground to avoid a lift. Scores: 6/6/6, for an 18/30 (a point higher than last night).
Denise and Maks are next. She clomps around a little less, but not much. She really doesn't seem to be enjoying herself at all -- even in backstage footage, which makes it not pleasant to watch her. Bruno says she improved a lot (Really?) from last night. Carrie Ann says she is good under pressure, and she worked on her hands and her presentation. Len says she proved she deserves to stay. Were they watching the same performance I was? Sigh. Scores: 6/7/7, for a 20/30 (it's weird because the scores they show on the screen are 7/7/6, and there's a lot of confusion). Bet they get it figured out during the break, but Carrie Ann is really not amused that Samantha is saying that she picked up the wrong paddle. Really not amused. After the break, Tom says yes, it was a 20/30.
And the eliminated couple is: Denise and Maks. She says she's a huge fan of the show, and at least her daughters like her dancing.
What do you think of the results? I'm OK with them.
