Too bad this isn’t a group dance competition, because that little Grease-y number by the remaining Dancing with the Stars contenders in last night’s week six episode was hot!
Memo to American Idol producers: Take a cue from the DWTS gang and admit that those group song numbers you do during AI results shows don’t have to be as painful to watch as they inevitably are, hmmm?
Back to DWTS, stealing the show this week: Mel B. and Maksim, who finally lived up to their potential and nabbed a perfect 30 from the judges with their sizzling rumba!
Also back in the game: Helio and Julianne, who bounced back from last week’s bottom two performance with a 28 for their Cha-cha, good enough for second place heading into tonight’s results show (9 p.m. ET, ABC). Overall judges scores for last night: • Mel B. and Maksim: 30 •Helio and Julianne: 28 •Jennie and Derek: 27 •Sabrina and Mark: 25 •Cameron and Edyta: 25 •Marie and Jonathan: 23 •Jane and Tony: 22
So tell us: Who surprised you? Did you think Mel B. had a 30-scoring performance in her? Did you think Helio would make such a dramatic comeback? And what about Sabrina–will she fade out now, or was last night’s middle-of-the-pack score a fluke? Oh, and Jane and Tony bringing up the bottom score–are they cursed after their war of words with judge Carrie Ann Inaba? –Kimberly Potts
