The most unusual “dance” of the night was definitely that of Adam Carolla and his pro partner Julianne Hough. They were dancing the paso doble, and Adam made his grand entrance riding on a unicycle. Don’t ask me why, he just did.
My favorite comment by one of the judges was when Carrie Ann Inaba said that it was “dramatic, and smooth and the turns were great…and then he got off the unicycle.” Perfect! Click on “Read More” for this and the other performance videos.
Again this week, Kristi Yamaguchi and her partner Mark Ballas were incredible. Together their nearly perfect paso doble got 29 points from the judges. She’s certainly a contender!
Priscilla Presley and her partner Louis van Amstel danced a beautiful and graceful Waltz. I think this is her best dance so far this season, but unfortunately they did a lift. That means that their scores were reduced for it.
I am such a huge fan of Marlee Matlin! I am in awe of the way she takes on something as incredibly hard for a hearing impaired person as dance, and does it even better than most hearing dancers would. She’s not just a good deaf dancer, she’s good dancer! Here’s her performance with her partner Fabian Sanchez. It was so touching, it brought tears to Carrie Ann’s eyes.
Here’s the paso doble of handsome Mario and his partner Karina Smirnoff. Honestly, I don’t know what Len Goodman is thinking! He is way too tough on Mario. I think he’s terrific! But it is funny when Len tells Mario that he has underwear older than him!
Here, Marissa Jaret Winokur and her partner Tony Dovolani dance their heart out in a very good paso doble. (Both Marissa & Tony are expectant parents, by the way…Marissa with a surrogate.)
I know I speak for many of the ladies out there when I say that this season, we have some real hunks on the show again! And Christián de la Fuente is one of them. Check out this very sexy paso doble he danced with his partner Cheryl Burke.
Here’s the waltz of hotty Jason Taylor and his partner Edyta Sliwinska. All I can say is WOW! Lucky Edyta!
This week, Derek Hough injured his neck and had to be taken to the hospital. Then, his doctor told him that he would have to wear a neck brace and rest for a week. So since Jonathan Roberts was available, he worked with Shannon Elizabeth to prepare for her waltz this week. And in spite of all the difficulties, they performed one of the most amazing waltzes this season.
