This seems destined to be a weird week all the way around. :-)
Only thing I’m going to say right now about the songs is that some people are going to be happy and some are not. How’s that for vague?? :-) I will say that Kelly got EXTREMELY lucky – let’s just see which way they go with the choreo and if the judges subsequently call them out like Courtney and I suspect they SHOULD (but probably won’t).
I think the only one of these dances likely to be a surprise – because it hasn’t been spoiled by the couple – is Shawn and Derek doing the Argentine Tango. I also don’t think that Kelly and Val have mentioned Rumba, but we’re fairly sure that’s what they have.
ETA: Yes, Kelly may as well be doing another Paso, going by her music (and since Warren and Kym used it as a Paso on the show before). Courtney and I predict that Val takes the easy out, goes mostly Paso and doesn’t get called on it. And they get a 30. :-) Any takers???
ETA2: So, Emmitt’s song seems rather obvious, doesn’t it? :-) It’s a shame he’s apparently struggling with the choreography in what is otherwise a “cute” dance. ;-) And YES, we know his Lindy song was Donny’s Jive song. Also struggling, from what I hear, is Kelly – who’s dance, as suspected, doesn’t look very “surfer” at all. She’s apparently having trouble with the timing and looks “frantic”. In other news, Melissa is doing great with the AT – as we also suspected that she would. :-)
ETA3: I’m having trouble seeing a Jazz dance for Apolo’s song – it will require a lot of creativity from Karina. It does sound circus-y. I included a youtube link because I had trouble with the iTunes link at first…and then when I saw the video I decided to leave it. :-) From where I”m sitting, Melissa got EXTREMELY lucky. If they hadn’t picked the second dances live I would suspect foul play. Now, can Tony capitalize on that extraordinary luck?? Sounds like he’s done well with the AT, but there are TWO dances.
