Thanks for adding this, Jackie! I really have nothing to say. I just wanted to be first!! :)

By the way, if you didn't read it on the previous post, I started my own blog!!! It's become contagious!

Anonymous said...

Thanks, Jackie.

PDX Granny said...

Happy Birthday, Laurie!!!

Hope you're having a wonderful day and getting spoiled!

joy n said...

And Susan is gone, too.

Happt Birthday, Laurie!

joy n said...

Happt and Happy Birthday, Laurie!

meb said...

Happy Birthday Laurie.

Yes, now we are down to the nitty-gritty. Although I still feel it might be Cody going next.

pdx granny... you may have been first but my wv is surst! Whatever!

Sydney said...

Happy birthday Laurie!!!!!

Thanks Jackie.

Pdx, I checked out your blog. It's fun to get comments, no?

Joy, I was amazed that Susan Lucci went, because she has so many fans. She did her best, techinically she did well, but just was too lady like. I know she tried so hard to let loose too. Anyway, I'm glad the young guy didn't have to go this week... kind of unfair since he may have done less than his best due to a new partner to get used to...

Meb, I agree he might be next. Let's face it, it will be Brooke and Derek, and one of the others will be in the f2 with them. LOL, am I repeating everything you all have already said for weeks?

I haven't been commenting much because I'm so darn busy but I am watching and will try to comment more now.

Laurie said...

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. It's been a lovely day and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

Looks like my Charger game is going to delay AR tonight. Sorry about that, but at least my team is going to win!!

Elaine, your wonderful double rainbow picture is now my desktop image. I just love it!

I don't watch DWTS, but I'm glad to know Chloris is finally gone.

becky said...

Happy Birthday, Laurie!!! BTW Jackie, the second post is mine. I forgot to sign my name -- again.

RBennie said...

Happy birthday Laurie! I hope you had a great day. There seem be be a lot of fellow Scorpions on this site. I'm just itchin for TAR to start. See you guys there. Congrats on your new blog pdx Granny. It's amazing how many of us started one in the last couple of days. All it took was the Tag game, LOL.

flipflopsinthewinter said...

I'm in love w/ Warren Sapp and every week want to wrap him up and take him home.


Christmas is coming soon - if anyone can hook me up. LOL

:)

Sydney said...

Funny flipflops!

joy n said...

Here we go again! TMZ is reporting that Kym Johnson has hurt her shoulder. She will dance tonight, but may require surgery down the road.

A TMZ quote: "Must be something in the bronzer."

TerryinCA said...

rbennie, you are a Scorp too? me too!
I am hoping Brooke wins, but Im voting for Cody cause I dont want him to leave.

joy n said...

Cody and Edyta doing a Fox Trot first. Cody did great, very relaxed. Good comments from the judges. Decent scores.

Clementine said...

Aww, Cody did a good foxtrot! Much more controlled than he usually is.

And Edyta's dress looks classy (from the front). The back still only half covers her behind.

joy n said...

I mean relaxed in regards to his stiffness last week.

joy n said...

Brooke's legs are looking a bit thin.

joy n said...

Wow! That was really nice! Great Tango! Great comments for the last woman contestant. Naturally, Len has LOTS of complaints.

wv is fonder. Take a hint, Len.

Two great scores. Len stinks!

Clementine said...

Brooke's body is ridiculous. Even her back is perfectly toned.

Oh, shush, Len! He's always a stickler for the "heel-leads".

Anyone else getting a little tired of Derek pulling funny faces this season? Didn't he seem more mature in the past?

joy n said...

Maurice and Cheryl dancing the Quickstep. Pretty classy. Nice comments.

becky said...

TerryinCA said...I am hoping Brooke wins, but Im voting for Cody cause I dont want him to leave.

Me too! I did give Brooke and Derek one vote. Frankly, I think that Len needs a laxative.

Clementine said...And Edyta's dress looks classy (from the front). The back still only half covers her behind.

And....Brooke's body is ridiculous. Even her back is perfectly toned.

Disgusting, isn't it. Get behind me green eyed monster!

That's why I call her Her Royal Nakedness.

joy n said...

I get the impression that Derek is trying to be debonair. It ain't working so well.

becky said...

Geese-Louise, I can't even type correctly tonight. My post should have read..

Clementine said...And Edyta's dress looks classy (from the front). The back still only half covers her behind.

That's why I call her Her Royal Nakedness.



And....Brooke's body is ridiculous. Even her back is perfectly toned.

Disgusting, isn't it. Get behind me green eyed monster!

My word is offing -- something I want to do to Len sometimes.

joy n said...

Scores for Maurice and Cheryl are decent also.

joy n said...

Lance and Lacey will do a "traditional" Fox Trot trying to please Len tonight. He'll still kvetch. Wanna bet?

joy n said...

Told ya!

joy n said...

Most comments were good. Scores should be very good, hopefully. YES. Better than they ususally get.

I'm trying not to get too specific here. I know some of those who watch later like to find out scores for themselves.

Clementine said...

"An 8 from Len is like an 11 from Michael Flatley" So true!!

Joy-I think he needs an extra dose of prune juice!

I'll say it again this week: I wouldn't mind a double-eviction. The show is really dragging for me this season.

joy n said...

Warren and Kym to do a Tango.

joy n said...

And a very sexy tango it was! Go Warren! James Bond music was cool. Very good comments.

joy n said...

It is dragging some. Not my fave season, either.

Len definitely needs something. I'd personally feed him the prunes.

joy n said...

Yay! Warren got a 10! Sorry, had to announce that.

joy n said...

Now all have a 15 second solo within their dance.

Cody and Edyta doing the mambo. I don't know, Cody looked a little stiff again.

Clementine said...

Cody is just too cute! His solo was very entertaining. He may not be the best dancer, but he's enjoyable and he tries hard every week.

I think we see an elimination based on lack of fanbase this week, so I don't know if it will be Cody or Maurice?

Sounds like Julianne could come back next week, if Cody stays in!

joy n said...

Julianne will be back next week if Derek is still in this.

joy n said...

I meant Cody. DUH!

joy n said...

Very nice mambo for Brooke and Derek. I love Brookes hair.

Clementine said...

Did Brooke get a haircut, or is that a wig? I like it!

If Derek is living with Shannon whats-hername from last season, does Julianne live on her own? Sometimes I forget how young they are!

Clementine said...

The majority of Maurices' solo was standing in one place twirling a cape (Paso Doble). Hope the judges call him out on that.

joy n said...

Maurice and Cheryl and the Paso Doble. Maurice overall did very well.

Clementine said...

They're complimenting him on twirling a cape??!! And Len nitpicks other people for technique? I don't get it. Boo, judges, on that one.

becky said...

Clementine said...The majority of Maurices' solo was standing in one place twirling a cape (Paso Doble). Hope the judges call him out on that.

Well, they did. They loved it.

I am afraid Cody is going home tomorrow. I think Maurice will go next week.

Prunes taste too good for Len. Give him castor oil!

joy n said...

It's hard to tell if it's a wig. It looks very natural but it could be a very expensive one, I suppose. Whichever, she looks great in that hair!

joy n said...

Girls, let's give Len both. That'd keep him out of commission for awhile!

Clementine said...

Weeeeeee!!!!!

Lacey is dancing with Benji tomorrow!!

joy n said...

Lance an Lacey with the samba. I liked it.

joy n said...

Warren and Kym up next dancing a jive.

joy n said...

I don't know exactly why, but parts of Warren's jive I just didn't like so much.

Clementine said...

I think we need to see a brother-sister danceoff with Lacey/Benji and Julianne/Derek. Holy cow, they would tear up the floor!!

Kym's dancing very well for being injured. I don't see her favoring the shoulder at all.

Warren's solo was very good, too. The cape thing still burns me. And Len just criticized Warren's technique. Grrrr!!!!

My WV is biacias. I think blogger is calling me bad names :)

joy n said...

I thought he looked kind of clumsy.

becky said...

Warren and Kym were wonderful! Of course Sour Puss had to dig him about his feet.

See you guys tomorrow night.

joy n said...

I do agree that Cody or Maurice will likely go home tomorrow night.

Clementine said...

I agree, Joy, it wasn't Warren's best effort. A 300lb man doing jive can get a little off-balance. But I would still give him better scores than Cape-Twirler!! lol

Night Joy and Becky!

Thanks for the new post, Jackie!

RBennie said...

Good morning all. I am totally psyched about seeing Lacey & Benji perform tonight. I love seeing them dance together. I don't know if any of these new little twists they are adding to the show are bringing any value to it. I was definitely not happy with the team dance bit last week and don't see where the 15 second solos made any difference at all. I agree with most of you that it will either be Maurice or Cody going home tonight. I'm leaning more toward Maurice because I think Cody will get a surge of votes just to ensure that Julianne comes back.

Anonymous said...

Unfortunately, I think Maurice will go home tonight because people want Juianne to come back. Also, I don't think a pro has been twice eliminated in the same season as Edyta would be if Cody goes home. I hate to see Maurice go. Yes, the solo was a bit lame, but I think they've been harder on him than many this year.

Anonymous said...

PS--What in the world was up with Warren's shoes? Why didn't he wear dance shoes for the jive. It emphasized he flat footed dancing more than dance shoes would have.

ORKMommy said...

I don't think Cody has anything to worry about. Tom should have just guaranteed he'd be back next week when he mentioned that he'll be dancing with Julianne. People will vote for him just to see her again.

I think Maurice's time is up. He's just too inconsistent. I wonder if Cheryl likes dancing with him. In the ballroom dances, he seems to take away something from her...almost like she has to fight to keep herself in step.

Nana in the NW said...

Good morning!
Last night Tom said the solo would be during the Latin dances....since when did the Jive become a Latin dance??? It was much easier for Warren to solo doing the Jive than Cody, Maurice,and Lance doing a Latin dance.

I have never thought Maurice and Cheryl have had any chemistry, he seems pretty full of himself. There is a reason many athletes compete in individual competitions and "team" competitions! They perform well as one but have a hard time working with others.

I'm in the group that hopes Cody does stay around....I want to see Julieanne dance again! That was so funny when all his friends came to practice....that was 18 yr. old boys with hormones in overdrive!!

I think Brooke's body has gotten thinner and more toned(if that's possible). She looks soooo good....I hate her!! LOL

Looking forward to seeing Lacey and Benji tonight.

Nana in the NW said...

Oops!! that should have read "NOT team competitions"!! Sorry.

TerryinCA said...

High Fives Becky!
And yes, As Tom as pointed out many times, Len needs moe fiber...how can he be so grouchy about some dancers?

Clementine said...

Julianne looks great. Love her hair!

Okay, let's get to Lacey and Benji!

joy n said...

Ya gotta love Brad Paisley's songs. And Brad , too! I just love good-looking nice guys!

Clementine said...

Once again, Joy, I wouldn't kick Brad outta bed.

But who the heck came up with the idea to pair Lacey/Benji with Brad??!! Their speciality is fast West Coast Swing! That song is way too slow tempo, country is not their style and the lyrics are not exactly best suited to their sibling relationship. Boo, I thought that was disappointing, because they could have been awesome!!

joy n said...

Warren was better today than last night. He knew it too. He was beaming.

Warren and Kym are safe.

Lance and Lacey are also.

Brook and Derek just HAVE to make it through. Cody deserves to stay just for trying so hard with two different partners.

monty924 said...

Yay, Lance and Lacey are in the semis with Warren and Kym. Missed blogging last night but I think it will be Maurice going home. I agree with the rest who think the vote surge is more likely for Julianne and not automatically Cody.

Samantha's dress is awful.

joy n said...

I love Julianne and Derek dancing together. They're are having FUN!

This is the piece they taped before her surgery. Good thing!

monty924 said...

Now that was a jive. I can't believe Julianne is in that good of shape following surgery. Good for her.

I was holding my breath when they were on the piano.....

Clementine said...

Wow, guess Julianne is recovered! And we kinda got the bro/sis danceoff I wished for! Derek and Julianne definitely won that round.

Did Julianne not have stitches from surgery? How'd she do all that?

joy n said...

They're are. Sheesh!

monty924 said...

That explains it. I coudn't believe she was back to that speed so fast.

becky said...

joy n said... I just love good-looking nice guys!

Joy, darlin', are you hitting close to OUR age? DOL clubettes. You know the dirty old lady club?

Wow! Julianne and Derek were amazing!

I hope Cody is back next week. I just love watching Julianne's choreograph magic.

Clementine said...

Glad Joy had an explanation for that... I thought Julianne was some kinda bionic woman or something! :)

Here's a video of Benji and Lacey (with their mom and dad) to watch later...

Benji-Lacey

joy n said...

I've been in that club for awhile now, becky. At 61, a girl can still dream. And drool!

joy n said...

Brad and Maks at the same time! My heart is fluttering AND I'm drooling, too! LOL.

monty924 said...

Hair or not, Maks is still smokin hot!!!

joy n said...

Don't pick on Maks, Tom. I like the new haircut.

Clementine said...

Cool slo-mo dancer anatomy lesson!

Hey, what's all this drool doing on the floor in here? Jackie, do have a mop we can use? Clean-up on aisle two!! lol

monty924 said...

That was a nice piece on the mechanics of dancing.

Clementine said...

Stop making faces, Derek.

Don't send Cody home!

monty924 said...

Cody does deserve to stay over Maurice... it couldn't have been easy switching partners mid-stream. I think the judges were harder on him in Julianne's absence.

becky said...

Well the bottom two are the ones we thought, Maurice and Cody.

And Joy, yes, we older broads can even get away with a few comments not and again.

I just celebrated my 68 th birthday last month. I am not kidding when I tell you that sometimes I have to look at the age of my children in order to have the reality that I am NO in my late 40's hit me.

joy n said...

I hear ya, becky. I still have mornings where I wonder who that old broad in the mirror is.

Clementine said...

Okay, bring on the Semi-Finals! Does the Finale air on the Mon before Thanksgiving?

monty924 said...

Well at least Cody is safe to dance with Julianne again.

joy n said...

Well, it's good-bye for Maurice and Cheryl. It will likely be Cody and Julianne next week. It gets tougher after that.

joy n said...

I don't even know yet when the finale is.

joy n said...

I just read on TV Squad that we're two weeks away from the finale.

dla said...

Well, here I am West Coast time, a bit late, as usual! :)

Thrilled to see Cody make it through to get back with Julianne next week.

And I agree that Brooke is looking more tiny and toned than ever. I made the same comment earlier this evening. Talk about great genes!! After FOUR kids?? Wow! :)

Love the new haircut on Maks. Much more modern, and he would look good with no hair at all. He seems a bit shy, which is so unexpected. Makes me like him all the more... He is a hottie.

And ya gotta love Brad Paisley!

PS: I am going to be catty now. Samantha's hair looked like a birds nest attached to the back of her head. And the dress looked like something I would wear over my black bikini at the beach in Mexico or Hawaii. That is, if I was still in shape to wear a black bikini. :) Those were the days, my friends....

PDX Granny said...

Boy am I ever glad I have all you guys!! My DVR stopped recording just as they cut away for the last commercial. I only saw that Maurice and Cody were left. No idea who go the boot.

I'm really glad Cody is staying. I like Julianne, but I like him too - better than Maurice.

I'm sorry flipflops, but I just don't see Warren the same way you do. There's no denying that he can dance. I wished I liked him better so I could appreciate the dancing more. He seems arrogant to me.

JoyN, I'm glad you mentioned that Julianne and Derek's dance was taped prior to her surgery. I was with the others who thought she must be part bionic woman!

There are so many things to love about this place. One of the best is that we can all let out our inner DOL. Mine came out loud & clear when Brad sang to me. I was almost wishing I had ticks!

meb said...

Didn't get to see the show. Fell asleep as expected. So glad Cody is still with the show. And also glad that Maurice left. I really think it should be Warren who goes next. While he appears light on his feet in the fast dances, he's very flat footed most of the time. I think Cody is a better dancer than Warren, although Cody is stiff and needs some loosening up.

Clementine... Derek has been bugging me for a while with his facial expressions. It's like he needs to hog the camera. Lacy does the same thing. And I believe it comes down to their immaturity... but then there's Julianne who is very professional, so go figure.

By the way, falling asleep early wakes you up early, thus the reason for my posting at 3am.

RBennie said...

I thought Lacey & Benji were great last night. Yes, they could have been even better with music more suited to their style, but I still thought they did a phenomenal job and I just love how much fun they put into their dancing. Nobody slides like Benji. I totally missed Julianne & Derek's number, but with the help of Youtube, I will watch it today. Not at all surprised or particularly saddened that Maurice went home. Cody should go next. He's very cute and full of youthful exuberance, but a good dancer he's not. The final three, imo, should be Brooke, Lance & Warren, and even though Brooke is the best dancer of the 3, I still want Lance to win, LOL. I just like him more.

joy n said...

I'm not a big fan of Warren either because I also think he is arrogant. For a guy his size, he's good but not that good. I just think the judges may prefer him to Cody for whatever reason.

Having said that, each season I'm liking Len less and less. I believe his own personal bias sometimes comes through and is reflected in his voting. I honestly feel he should be replaced.

meb said...

joyn...does Len have anything to do with the production of the show? I thought he did, thus would be hard put to replace him.

I missed the results show, so just went over and watch Lacy and Benji on YouTube... they are so good together. I also watched a few of her other #'s posted over there from SYTYCD and her legs look a lot thinner. Wonder what she's doing that might make her legs get thicker. They make her look chubby when she really isn't.

Benji is so adorable...

joy n said...

I don't know Meb, but that might explain why he gets away with the bias.

Anonymous said...

Good Brooke finally messed up. Go Lance

joy n said...

Brooke and Derek not so great tonight. Hopefully, the second dance will get them back into their groove.

Julianne is as talented as always, but Cody did look a bit robotic at times. His arms especially looked gangle-y (sp.?)to me.

Clementine said...

Brooke was a "hot mess" on that jive. Guess it's good to see she can goof up, too!

Cody looks really cute in his military uniform, but he was very stiff in the Paso.

Kym wins "body of the week" for that mambo outfit. Warren was just okay for me on the first dance. Kinda boring.

joy n said...

Kym's got a pretty nice bod herself. I don't think I ever even came close to looking like that ever.

Warren and Kym were pretty good out there, but I still can't see them winning this.

Clementine said...

Lance could help himself make the finals, if he comes out and nails this next dance, after the other 3 did poorly.

I'm worried that the combined fanbase from Hannah Montana and Julianne fans may push Cody to the finals, when I don't think he should be there.

becky said...

I adore Julianne, but I think that Cody should probably go home this week. That said, I think he has gotten a lot further than he could have with any other partner. She has taught him a lot, but he is very young.

Len is an insulting boob. I am in the like him less and less this year.

I didn't think that Brooke was as good this week. And darn you that mentioned Derek's facial mugging. You are right. I just paid more attention tonight.

Must say, the judges have all been rather brutal this week. Except with Warren. He didn't impress me that much. But he is better than Cody. And Kym deserves to go further this year after the duds that have stuck her with in the past.

Clementine said...

Joy, just read your question about Lacey's legs. I think I heard that she hurt her knee on the SYTYCD tour and had to take time off from dancing. That might explain her slight weight gain (which she seems to be losing now) and maybe she was working out the leg, and built some extra muscle. Just guessing :)

Clementine said...

Aww, I love Lance's grandpap!

becky said...

Lance and Lacey nailed it! And, yes, she mugs a lot too.

Looks like brother and sister will be in the bottom two this week.

joy n said...

I believe that was one of Lance and Lacey's best performances yet. Even Len agrees!

Clementine said...

Whoops, that was Meb talking about Lacey's legs.

YEA!!!! Lance and Lacey, that was great! And I love the feathers on Lacey's dress.

joy n said...

Great scores for L & L. About time! Len couldn't deny them this time around.

Nana in the NW said...

Can't see any of it yet, but I just wanted to say "hi"!!

becky said...

Nana in the NW said... Can't see any of it yet, but I just wanted to say "hi"!!

Hi, Nana. You will agree with us after you see the show. Len is a pompus a$$.

Clementine said...

Hi, Nana!

Wow, I want to salsa like those pros. That was smooooooth!

Clementine said...

Aack, are you all watching the St Jude's commercial with Antonio Banderas? He doesn't look so good. I think my little crush on him is over :)

joy n said...

Brooke and Derek so much better with their salsa. YAY!

becky said...

Brooke and Derek were terrific! As the judges said, Brooke is back!

joy n said...

WOW! a TEN from Len!

joy n said...

Cody was better this time, too.

joy n said...

Missed Warren's jitterbug. (Phone call, darn it) Sounds like it went pretty well.

joy n said...

Lance and Lacey only have to do better than 21 to get top score tonight.

joy n said...

What a trouper! Lance lost a shoe and just kept on tickin'.

Great jitterbug.

joy n said...

If there is any justice on this season, Brooke and Derek vs Lance and Lacey is who the final two will have to be.

joy n said...

Have to say they got the scores about right tonight.

becky said...

It appears I called it, brother and sister at the bottom. I look for Cody to go home.

See you guys tomorrow night.

Clementine said...

Lance and Lacey were awesome tonight.

For any SYTYCD fans out there, here's a clip of Lacey dancing a Lindy Hop (a dance very similar to the jitterbug):

Lacey and Neil

Lacey says, "I falled a bunch." LOL

Clementine said...

Just saw this on the news... Cloris Leachman has been hospitalized with pneumonia.

RBennie said...

Now that's what I'm talkin about! Way to go Lancey! They finally got their due from the judges, but Len just had to deny them a 10 and then he gives a 10 to Brooke. Cody is noticeably out of his league now and needs to go home. I like Julianne too, but I don't think he deserves to make the finals just because his professional partner has a large fanbase. I know this is mean of me, but I was glad to see Brooke screw up for a change. They were being way too ambitious with that jitterbug.

joy n said...

Clementine, RTVW now has a report that Cloris' rep denies the pneumonia story. He says she has a cough and sought medical help for it. He says also that she is scheduled to tape something for DWTS later this week plus many other engagements (apparently due to her new popularity) and Ms Leachman is planning to fulfill all of them.

Of course, we don't really know which story is true.

joy n said...

Diva Aretha Franklin is scheduled for tonight's DWTS entertainment. I've heard she presented a long list of demands including no AC can be on when she sings.

I cannot believe for the life of me that she was named the best singer of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. They should be embarrassed for saying that.

The last three times that I've heard her sing made me cringe. She doesn't really sing, she screeches, she screams. If she should happen to sing as part of a group (awards shows) she hogs the limelight. Her last note will be louder and longer and have more twists in it than anyone trying to sing with her.

When I heard how upset she got with Beyonce for calling Tina Turner the Queen of Rock (who still sings beautifully) and that she felt Beyonce owed her an apology, I was SO OVER Aretha.

Aretha needs to get over herself.

joy n said...

Leona Lewis, on the other hand, has great range and reminds me of Maria Carey's voice.

TerryinCA said...

ok, who got the boot tonight???

joy n said...

Haven't said yet, Terry, but I believe they are about to announce one team who is safe (after the commercial, of course!).

Clementine said...

Thanks for the news on Cloris, Joy! I thought it was strange that she would contract pneumonia after getting probably the most exercise of her life dancing on the show, lol!

Oops, we'll have to disagree on the Queen of Soul. Aretha singing Chain of Fools is awesome in my book :) And Leona Lewis, too! The show has definitely upped the ante with results show talent this year. It's usually at the top of the ratings, so I guess they're cashing in their chips to get the big stars! Works for me!

And Maks and Dimitri tonight, too! (swoon)

I think I'll need to rewatch again tomorrow.

joy n said...

No, a teaser, but Julianne is singing!

joy n said...

Julianne is definitely country and she sings pretty well.

Clementine said...

Hey, Julianne has a good voice! I don't know that I've heard her sing yet. Is this her big single?

And how neat is it that Derek and Marc are her dancers! Supporting their sister, that's so cool. I wonder if they thought they get this far when they were performing together as kids?

joy n said...

They are a very talented family.

joy n said...

I believe it is her new single and off her new album.

Clementine said...

And they have quite the prop dept this year, yes? What is that thing that John Legend is singing in?? Looks like a bunch of giant glow sticks attached to a trampoline, hee, hee

But I liked his song.

Clementine said...

Wait, Brooke has a fiance?! Is he the father of her 4 kids? I thought she was married! I'm so old-fashioned...

joy n said...

Lance and Lacey are safe!

Brooke and Derek are safe!

joy n said...

Warren or Cody? After the commercial!

joy n said...

Warren and Kym are safe!

Cody and Julianne are out!

joy n said...

Cody is such a typical teenager. He went so ga-ga meeting Julianne and then again the first time they rehearsed together. That going from teen to man thing, you know?

Nana in the NW said...

I know some of you EC have left but I see the comment about Derek and Mark backing up Julianne. On Sunday I was watching the Stars Tour on Ice and Derek and Mark were the live singers! They are in a rock band together and both were quite good singers.

Excited to see the show...knew it was time for Cody to go. He has had such a crush on Julianne this season. I think it's been cute to watch....awwwwwwww.

meb said...

Clue me in somebody. Marc is brother to Julianne and Derek??? I didn't know that! They never refer to him like they do J & D. Will wonders never cease.

I liked Cody, but it doesn't surprise me that he went before Warren. It's all in the fan base at this point.

Yamagouchi (sp) did a good job tonight. Good to see her back.

I'm surprised Aretha would allow dancers during her song. When she sang her first song, the only time the audience got loud was when the dancers came on. That was embarrassing I would think.

Caroline said...

Meb...Mark is not their brother. But Mark and Julianne were juniors partners for many, many years and won many championships together. On top of that Mark & Derek are in the bank Almost Amy together and they (along with the rest of the band) live together. Hope that clears that up for everyone.

Caroline said...

whoops....bank = band

Mark and Derek are in the BAND Almost Amy.

Guess my fingers are still asleep this morning.

becky said...

I was nice and let hubby have the computer last night. It was time for Cody to go home. The best three couples have advanced to the finals.

Hard to believe the season is almost over.

I thought that was a very entertaining result show last night. I believe the right 3 couples are in the finals, which is nice for a change. Usually there is always 1 couple there who really shouldn't be!

I loved the John Legend performance. I like Leona Lewis, but I'm over that song already. She should have sung her latest single. I thought Julianne's song was cute. Nothing special about it, very typical country song, imo. It was cute that she had the young'uns dancing with her. Of course the highlight of the night for me was seeing Maks and Karina dance together. They were smoking hot. Go Lancey!

Has anyone else noticed how Kim flinches everytime Warren kisses on her bard shoulders? Seems as though she is a little tired of the his excessive affection.

Oops ... I meant bare shoulders!

RBennie said...

It's funny you should mention that Anon, because my husband, who doesn't typically watch the show, was watching it reluctantly with me on Monday and his comment was "wow, she really doesn't like her partner much does she? Look at those looks she's giving him".

Clementine said...

Final 3 tonight, ladies!! Anybody out there?

Clementine said...

Why are they wearing ugly yellow costumes? Speaking of banana peels :)

I think I'm rooting for L/L, but I'm not sure yet.

Clementine said...

I think L/L's mambo was my favorite dance of the season.

Clementine said...Final 3 tonight, ladies!! Anybody out there?

Hey, Clementine. I hope Brooke and Derek do well tonight. I, myself, think she is the most accomplished.

Hope I don't get flack from you guys, but I have never "gotten into" Lance and Lacey.

I am going to have to pay closer attention to Kym and Warren and see if I catch those shudders.

Clementine said...

Hi Becky ~~~

Well, we've had 30 mins of recaps, let's get on with the show!

I did enjoy the kid champs jive. Loved her dress, very 40's chic.

Those yellow costumes are blinding me! Ick!!

joy n said...

I'm rooting for Brooke and Derek, too. They have been fairly consistent all season long. Warren just never did well enough to win this. I wouldn't be heartbroken though, if Lance and Lacey did win.

joy n said...

Well, my digital cable went out. We're in the middle of an ice storm. I have a frozen picture of the kids who just got the trophy.

Clementine said...

Oh, no, Joyn!!

Well, they just did a fantastic group samba with spotlight parts for each.

Judges had very nice things to say to Lance and Warren about their progress, and agreed that Brooke is the best technical dancer. Len practically crowned her winner. Carrie Ann was a little more critical.

First we get to see Brooke's scores, then we go to break:
Brooke 9, 9, 10

Clementine said...

And we're back!

Lance and Lacey's scores: 9, 8, 9

Warren and Kym scores: 9, 7, 9


Samantha has hu-uuge hair tonight. I think Cloris Leachman may be hiding in there.

Okay, Clementine, am I going to have to make sure I'm not drinking my coke tonight when I read your posts? Petals kept cracking me up last night. Is it your turn tonight?

Clementine said...

Brooke and Derek did their freestyle to "The One that I Want" from Grease. It was super-cute and some amazing tricks. Derek choreo'd that perfect! It suited her so well.

Judges luurrved it!

Len and Bruno: best freestyle they've ever seen.

becky said...

WOW!!!! Brooke and Derek were something else!

Does Bruno get a bit excited. WOW! Even Mr. Needs Some Prunes even said it was the best free style ever!

Clementine said...

Brooke and Derek freestyle:

10, 10, 10!

That's going to be hard to beat, but I can't wait to see the others.

Clementine said...

Okay, Brooke did great, but they do tend to overhype at the finale, methinks. There were a few other freestyles over the years that I enjoyed more, and definitely others that were comparable as far as performance.

Not to take anything away from Brooke. She was awesome!

Becky - is Cloris in the audience? I haven't seen her.

Joyn - you still out there? Hope you're all safe in warm inside, and the ice storm doesn't leave any damage behind.

becky said...

Clementine, have you ever seen Canine Freestyle? Here is a link that has had more hits than any other.

It is our niece Carolyn and her Golden Rookie. Unfortunately, Rookie went to the Bridge this year.
Click here: YouTube - Carolyn Scott & Rookie

Clementine said...

Lance is wearing a "LANCEY" shirt, LOL! Perfect!!

becky said...

Clementine said...Becky - is Cloris in the audience? I haven't seen her

No, I haven't. Maybe they lock her out so she can't take over the show! I know, my bad.

Joy, hope you get your cabel back soon. Stay warm and safe.

monty924 said...

Just now getting here. I loved Lancey's dance. Brooke and Derek will get the best scores but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for Lancey.

Clementine said...

Lance and Lacey did Hip Hop freestyle. It really suited his style (no surprise).

No lifts because they wanted to stay true to traditional Hip Hop. Hmm... not sure I believe that reason.

Carrie Ann criticized that they did a few bars of ballroom at the end. Took her out of it. Len and Bruno like it.

Judges scores: 9, 9, 9

monty924 said...

Julianne and Apolo's freestyle is my all-time favorite.

Clementine said...

Hey, Becky, the link didn't appear, but I'll just search the title on YouTube later. Thanks!

Hi Monty!

I think that was the best Lacey has looked all season. She is much more suited to the casual look, rather than ballroom diva.

joy n said...

Cable is running well again. I saw most of Brooke and Derek's freestyle. Loved it!

"Lancey" did great, too.

It's actually warming up here. Now 34 degrees and I can hear clumps of ice and snow falling off the silver maples onto our roof. It's still raining though, and if the temps go down again, we'll have ice again.

Clementine said...

Warren and Kym with a more traditional dance to Proud Mary. Started out slow and ended with some fabulous lifts. And Kym wins the prize tonight for amazing costume.

Carrie Ann's favorite routine. (And then she called him out for a mistake he made. Shut-up Carrie Ann. She always has to be right.)

Judges scores: 9, 10, 9

Len said his 10 was for "entertainment"

becky said...

Clementine said... Hey, Becky, the link didn't appear, but I'll just search the title on YouTube later. Thanks!

If you type in Carolyn and Rookie in your search it will come up. I was surprised at how many links there are to them.

They were the first Canine Freestyle World Champions.

Joy, glad you got to see all of the freestyle.

I still like Brooke and Derek best. Who do you think will win?

See you tomorrow night.

monty924 said...

I have to agree with Carrie Ann... Warren and Kym's freestyle was my favorite. Not doing any lifts hurt Lancey. Apolo and Julianne worked lifts into their hip-hop routine.

It will come down to the fan voting for this one. Go...

Well, all of them. Best final three ever.

joy n said...

Wow! Warren did well tonight.

On to the finale manana!

joy n said...

I'm still thinking Brooke and Derek have the best chance of winning this.

Clementine said...

Total scores:

Brooke in the lead

Warren and Lance tied behind her

Now we'll see if the anybody's fanbase can overcome Brooke's lead.

I don't think I'm voting this year, because I liked them all about equal tonight.

See you tomorrow, ladies :)

meb said...

Derek and Brooke were the best freestyle, hands down. What does that mean, hands down??? Well let me tell you... one theory is that it comes from the boxing ring. A prize fighter occasionally got matched with a pushover and in such a bout, he waltzes to victory after having barely raising his fists...hands down!

Just thought you'd like to know that. (I have a book of 600 phrases and where they got started).

The best part of tonight's show was Tom Bergeron holding up a tiny piece of Kym's costune and saying that it would be all of Edyta's costume. Too funny.

My wv is dable ... I dable with phrases...

dla said...

Good show, good season. Not my favorite of all time, and some of the scoring was completely wack, but what can ya do??

I think Brooke and Derek will be hard to beat, but you never know about those fans! If they get their voting fingers going, anything can happen.

Still believe that Brooke is the best dancer, Warren is most loved (and the least talented dancer), and that Lancey has shown the most improvement through the season. I don't think they could do lifts due to their similar size & weight, as Lance is not exactly a weight lifter.

Thinking back on previous freestyle, I loved Julianne & Apollo, and still loved Cheryl & Drew... Ride em, cowgirl! :)

See everyone tomorrow night after the show. I can't live blog and actually enjoy the show at the same time! lol

RBennie said...

Great show last night. I thought they all put it all on the floor. The group samba was a lot of fun. My only real bone to pick is how Len could give Warren a 10 and only give Lance an 8. Despite Brooke admittedly being the best technical dancer the entire season, I just never really had fun watching her. I would rather see Lancey win because their routines were all fresh, different and always had a playful, fun element to them. To quote Rosie "I found them very enjoyable".

becky said...

Is this where we should be tonight?

Clementine said...

I'm here, Becky~~

Go LANCEY! ...or DEROOKE!

I'll be okay with either. Warren's enjoyable, but comes third in technique for me.

Cloris was cute! Especially crawling out of the cardboard box. Less dancing, more funny.

Do you think we'll see some Maks tonight? Please, please, please?? :)

TerryinCA said...

Becky....I sure hope! I'll be checking back here myself

becky said...

OMGosh, I KNEW they had locked Cloris out of the studio. Looks like they locked her out of her trailer too.

Glad to see I'm in the right place.

Clementine said...

Nice to see Jeffrey Ross and Ted McGinley take their encore performance seriously. Looks like they really practiced and tried hard. Unlike Kym Kardashian. Not only does she not have rhthym, it looked liked she didn't even practice.

Can't wait to see Cloris' triumphant return to the dance floor, LOL!!

My wv is "imgiantoe". But really, my toe's not THAT big!

joy n said...

Doesn't look like Kim K. rehearsed much.

Derooke or Lancey!

joy n said...

And there is the lover-ly Maks!

joy n said...

It's a good thing Rocco kept his day job. LOL!

monty924 said...

Fun show tonight. I'm hoping it is Warren or Lance. Brooke is the best dancer by far... but Warren and Lance have wowed me so many times this season. I can't wait to see Warren and Kym's hustle and Lancey's Jitterbug again.

Clementine said...

Well, heelllooo, Maks. You look good. Very good. ;)

Samantha's dress is not flattering. And I don't think she has any undergarments supporting her droopy boobies. Sorry, I call 'em like I see 'em. Once you breastfeed, ya gotta give the girls a little support, Samantha!

You know, every year I forget who all was on the show until they dance at the end. Totally forgot about Rocco. He was enjoyable. Just saw him on Biggest Loser earlier tonight, so he's still making the reality rounds.

becky said...

Now the Cloris commercial "Coming to a Retirement Home" was funny!

Brooke and Lance are much better dancers.

joy n said...

Toni looks beautiful.

Cloris, God bless ya, you're having a great time!

monty924 said...

Loved, loved, loved Clorky one last time. SHE was the comic relief this season. I'm glad she came back with the Tango tonight. Cheers to Clorky!!!

Clementine said...

I'm almost dreading La Lucci. Never enjoyed her dancing.

Can't wait to see what Julianne and Cody do.

Clementine said...

Hey, I just remembered, we're going to flip over to a new page after 200 comments. That's so annoying.

Don't forget to hit the "newest" link at the top of the page.

monty924 said...

Funny Roast!!! I loved the Clorky 9-1-1 joke! Cloris did too.

monty924 said...

Clementine, we could move over to the other new post to avoid the 200 comment thing. Just a thought.

joy n said...

Just love that jitterbug!
