Here’s the trend for the week: rumba rumba tango tango samba samba….jive foxtrot?? Ummm….yeah, love me some theme weeks. It makes it SO easy to compare the dancers to each other. :::rolls eyes::: Rob versus Nancy? Don’t much care to see either Rumba…sorry, fans. I think Hope and David both could do really well with the tango and I think the judges want them around for a while so these should be no brainers. The sambas?? Well, JR will rock it and Chaz won’t – mission accomplished there, too. Carson’s Jive scares the crap outta me and Ricki’s Foxtrot?? Well, that scares me too, but only because I know what song they are dancing to – and they kinda got screwed (again). However, they are FAR from alone on crappy song selection…more on that later.
ETA: Gah, I hate Hello. Ugh.
ETA 2: And Tristan fans breathe a sigh of relief. It could have been worse. Can I say I also do NOT like JR’s song. :::sigh::: It’s fine for a Samba, I’m sure, I just don’t like that song.
ETA 3: Yes, we’re aware that Chaz is dancing to Mark and Shawn’s Samba song.
ETA 4: Squeeeee…..Tainted Love. “Touch me please I cannot stand the way you teaaase!!!”
ETA 5: JR is dancing 4th?? Hmmm…that may or may not be good. 4th of 8th might be at the top of the hour, but dang, we’re gonna have a lot of filler.
ETA 6: Step one in “this is Hope’s week” is complete, she’s dancing first and setting the bar.
ETA 7: You think Hope has it bad? Carson is in the crap spot!
