It's obvious that Dancing With the Stars' results shows need some filler for that one-hour slot they have, so tonight was jam-packed with performances from Cobra Starship singing "You Make Me Feel," young male dancers from the Gold School showing their skills and even the Muppets doing a little song-and-dance.
But between all that jazz, we got to the bottom of why we were watching in the first place:to find out who got cut one week shy of the finals.
But before we get to that, there were two performances that tickled our fancy.
The first was an encore of Rob Kardashian's samba from last night, which earned him his first 10 of the season. Judge Len Goodman introduced it as wanting to "see the couple that absolutely shook up the leaderboard, took their dancing to a new level," and also because Carrie Ann Inaba just wanted to "see the booty again."
Hey, it's about time we saw a different Kardashian utilizing their junk in the trunk. Bring it!
We then learned whether or not the duo that "loves to dance" was moving onto the finals. Um, duh. Of course they are!
Before finding out everyone else's fate, we watched Derek Hough and Anna Trebunskaya dance to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." Their Macy's-sponsored performance, which was chosen and designed by a fan, was pretty intense and hot.
Looking back on Maks Chermovskiy and Hope Solo's dances from last night, we can clearly see the tension between them and the judges. Nothing new, right? But Len was still confused, because in his opinion, they were being "nice."
Unfortunately, the spicy team of two was in jeopardy.
Then it was finally time to see if Ricki Lake or J.R. Martinez was safe to compete in the finals. And in the end, Ricki's best night of the season, which gave her the top of the leaderboard, kept her safe. Poor J.R., who twisted his ankle not once, but twice while trying to give it his all, was in jeopardy.
So who isn't making it to the finals? J.R. or Hope?
Sorry Hope, but your time is up. We'll definitely miss you and your partner's entertaining commentary.
