Sorry for the late posting. This day has been surreal, and I've been all sorts of busy. In fact, the surreal factor started last Thursday, and it just keeps getting more and more ... well, surreal.
And no, this is not a bad or horrible thing, it's just enough to keep me distracted.
At any rate, I wanted to do a live blogging like last week, but alas, it was not to be. Which is a pity, since it was one surreal show, just to match the aura of surrealism that has been gathering around me lately.
Oh, well, here goes (very abridged):
Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani: They did a ghost story type of performance. I think that it was awesome in a creepy sort of way. Plus the girl is really trying. I sent a vote their way. Very nicely done.
Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Okay, I think that the producers just focused on Maks kicking Brandy's butt over and over. They did great, but if there is no better chemistry, I predict that they won't make the finals. Which would be a pity.
Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke: That. Was. Awesome. And Rick being shy about dancing with an open shirt is really cute.
Jennifer and Derek: Okay, I love you Jen, but if you guys messed up, no amount of re-dancing it after the fact will fix your score. But it was nicely done.
Kyle and Lacey: The boy can dance, and has loads of charisma. But he can also be annoying. I do hope that he figures it out before he annoys himself out of a show.
Kurt and Anna: Big guy having a tea party with his two little girls. While wearing a tiara. Enough said. I loved him.
Florence and Corky: So okay, she was not a perfect Maria from Sound of Music from a perfectly dancing point of view, but I loved it. And the fact that she dedicated it to her late husband was very touching. Go Florence, go!
The Situation and Karina: Mad scientists? Futuristic moves? Black Eyed Peas shout out? Two left feet? How can you go wrong with that? That boy is trying hard. I sent a vote his way.
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas: I am sorry, but I found their use of the portrayal of homeless people into their routine very disturbing, if not offensive. And trust me, I am not easy to offend. The girl has some good dance moves, but she can't emote to save her life. And Mark needs a crash course on sensitivity. That's all I have to say.
Margaret Cho and Louis Van Intensité: A giant feather duster in raibbow colors and a yellow crest, what's not to like? Margaret looked like a deranged Big Bird, and Louis like a Jack LaLanne doppelganger. Looky here if you don't believe me:
So who do you think will be going home tonight? Have fun guys, and see you next week!
