Week 2 – the Jive and the Quickstep. Normally, if you had the Foxtrot in Week 1, you have the Jive in week 2. If you had the Cha Cha Cha you are dancing the Quickstep. That appears to be holding true for this season as well. There’s at least one, probably two train wrecks in this bunch…most of you can guess the first one.
Please note: these are not in any kind of order yet. The post will be updated through the day tomorrow with running order and songs, if we have them.
ETA: Almost forgot that Gilles and Mark spoiled their own songs so I might as well add them now.
ETA2: Shawn got a great song…but Black Betty? I guess that is a good quickstep song. Trying to visualize….
ETA3: A good choreographer could do something very interesting with Melissa’s song. Question is…can Tony??
ETA4: Melissa going first…a good shakeup to the dance order?? We’ll see.
ETA5: Dance Dance??? Oh boy.
ETA6: What a shock – an ABC employee gets the second best spot.
ETA7: And ANOTHER ABC employee in the pimp spot. Predictable. Maybe Apolo and Shawn are running away with it.
ETA8: If I’m wrong about where I guessed Bristol and Shawn are, I’m going to be PISSED, whether running order matters or not. Two weeks in a row in the worst position?? The shaft.
ETA9: Whew! I was right. I don’t like being pissed off. Louis says in his blog, which Vogue is posting soon, that Bristol is dancing second. Thanks to teichka for the heads up on that.
ETA10: A few last minute song spoilers…sort of. Turns out Joey is actually dancing to a big-band style cover Radiohead’s “Creep” done by a comedian named Richard Cheese…whose name I already like 😉 I know, Radiohead doesn’t exactly conjure up thoughts of lively, happy jumping & hopping characteristic of quickstep, but I actually think this version works REALLY well for quickstep. Sort of genius on Joey’s part 😎 As for Kirstie, all we know is that her song is entirely in French – and that Maks has her playing the character of a French prostitute. Knowing just that, I already think her jive has the potential to be all kinds of WIN. 😉 -Court-
Kirstie/Maks – Jive (Song: something in French…don’t know artist or song name)

Alex Wong of SYTYCD tweeted this picture of a dark and scary looking DWTS Studio and said to be sure to watch on Tuesday. Guess we all know what that means. But how about this pic for fitting into our Cheesecake serial killer theme?
