Ballroom and Latin – Dancing With The Stars, Week 7

Posted by ctanglefoot on November 6, 2007

On the week heels of last week’s shocking eviction of Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas (Who, by the way, finally have had their first date and are officially an item) our celebs and dancers had their first night of competition with two dances.  Each team had to perform a dance from both the ballroom and Latin disciplines. And the results were delightful.

 

 

Helio and JulieAnn opened the night with a Tango. (I always thought this was a Latin dance, silly me.)  Great footwork, fit the music, young, and sexy. What an awesome dress JulieAnn.  The judges scored them 9 – 8 – 8 for 25 points.

 

 

In the Latin round they danced a Samba. Now hint, the Samba is JulieAnn’s favorite dance, and her choreography showed it.  The dance definitely fit Helio. It was fluid, sexy, fun, with good tight footwork, and excellent musicality.  The judges gave them straight 9’s to 27.  Totaling 52 on the night.

 

Marie and Jonathan opened with the Quickstep. Basically good musicality, all though there was a slow spot or two. Good foot work, very entertaining.  The judges liked it too, they gave them 10 – 9 – 9  for 28.

 

The Cha Cha in the Latin round was cute, quirky, had nice musicality, but not enough Cha Cha.  The judges gave them straight 8s for 24. A total of 52 on the night.

 

Mel B and Maksim danced a Foxtrot in the Ballroom Round. Boring dance.  The judges gave them straight 8s for 24 points.

 

In the Latin round the totally made up for the boredom with a smoldering, sexy – hot Paso Dobles. Ei-chie Mama. Great character, great choreography, awesome musicality, and a to die for dress.  The judges were blown away and gave them straight 10s for 30 points. A total of 54 on the night.

 

Jane and Tony drew the Quickstep in the Ballroom round. Now I have to say I Walk The Line does not seem like a ballroom dance selection. I thought it had some nice footwork, but it should have been a two step.  The judges gave them straight 8s for 24.

 

Their Cha Cha in the Latin round was very nice. Jane Seymour at 56 has a to kill for body. Very nice Cha Cha. The judges scored them 8 – 9 – 9 for 26.  A total of 50 on the evening.

 

Jenny and Derek danced a Viennese Waltz in the opening round. Very fluid, graceful. The judges scored them 8 – 8 – 9 for 25.

 

In the Latin round Jenny and Derek Rumba’d. Very nice and dreamy dance. Smooth and romantic. Excellent choreography.  The judges scored them  9 – 9 – 10 for 28. A total of 53 on the evening.

 

Cameron and Edyta had the Quickstep in the Ballroom round. Fast but there were some serious missteps. I did not like the ending. Edyta has a habit of making a splashy landing, and tonight was no exception. The judges gave them straight 8s for 24 points.

 

In the Latin round every thing was different. The pair drew the Jive, and jive they did. Great musicality, nice foot work, great kicks, and nice kicks.  The judges socred them straight 9’s for 27 points. A total of 51 one the night.

 

I expect to see Mel B and Maksim’s  Paso Dobles for the encore performance tomorrow night, it totally rocked. 

In the bottom two?  Good question. I’m going to say Marie and Jonathan, Jane and Tony. But it is really hard to tell. Who’s going home? I’ve no clue and last week’s results verified that.

 

The cheetah tats in support of Sabrina were cute and a nice show of solidarity among the dancers and celebs.

 

Till tomorrow night,

Sith,

Tanglefoot
