Tonight, all we really want to know is who is getting kicked off of Dancing With the Stars. But first there is some business to attend to. And by business, I mean filler.
Well, actually, we get some results right off the bat: Aiden Turner and Edyta Sliwinska are safe (and shocked). So are Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (although they are less shocked).
The reprised dance from last night is Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya's quickstep. The judges choose it as their favorite, so we get to see the joyful performance again.
After the break, Reba Mcintyre performs while the pros do a country-themed dance in front of her.
More results: Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel learn they are safe, too.
Next, we're treated to an "acoustic paso doble" by Chelsie Hightower, Derek Hough and Mark Ballas. Mark, as you may recall, is injured, but his role here is on guitar, not the dancefloor. The dance has intensity and passion, and those are ramped up some by the acoustic soundtrack, I think.
Results: Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough are safe. Then, another break. Then there's Reba again.
Results again: Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya are told they are safe; so are Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke. Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood learn that they are safe as well.
This leaves Kate Gosselin, Buzz Aldrin and Jake Pavelka as the celebs waiting to learn their fates.
The first couple in the bottom two is: Buzz Aldrin and Ashly Costa. The second: Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower. So: Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani are safe. Really? Really? Why are people voting for her? She is clearly not enjoying herself. So stop it, OK?
Anyway, the ousted couple is: Buzz and Ashly.
Buzz says he did the show for the fighter pilots and the geezers (his word) out there, but also to draw attention to the space program. Hear, hear!
