So, dance offs. Great potential for some rigging of who the producers would prefer goes home. Unless they actually let the celebs pick…but that seems unlikely, since Sharna already knows their dance style and they can’t dance against someone who already had that style. Right? One would think so. So, if Sharna/James have Cha Cha, they have to be dancing against someone who hasn’t had Cha Cha yet. The people who HAVE danced Cha Cha? Rick, V.Ice, Calvin and…Laurie. So James won’t be dancing against Laurie, which gives her an easy row to hoe. Unless Laurie gets Jana and Jana absolutely kills it, Laurie will get immunity as expected. I suppose Marilu could beat her…but a 16 year old gymnast against Marilu hardly seems like a fair fight. But Marilu has a secret weapon that Laurie doesn’t – Derek. Could be interesting.
But where are the points coming from? This past Monday? Or their score on this coming monday? Sounds like a potential clusterf*%k. 🙂
ETA: According to a new Extra interview at Facebook this morning, Babyface and Allison have a jive. ~Vogue
ETA2: Per Maks’ blog, the couples dance the same style and get scores. Highest score of the pair of couples is immune from elimination.
ETA3: Everyone thank Derek for all the info in his blog this week. And he says many of the same things we do here. Interesting how they are predictable pitting Laurie against Marilu.
ETA4: According to ET, Lindsay and Calvin have a Viennese waltz. They are dancing against Sasha and Terra who have the same style of dance as you know. Calvin and Lindsay will be dancing to ‘It’s a Woman’s World.’ ~Vogue
ETA5: James and Sharna’s song is “Big Trouble” by Outasight. Thanks to @MaddiRoseL for letting us know.
ETA6: According to a new radio interview, Maureen and Artem have a Salsa.
ETA7: According to the ABC Press Release, below are the faceoffs with the songs and dance styles. Sounds like a bit of a repeat of the last results show, with the exception of the performances.
Florida Georgia Line, CMA Award winners for Vocal Duo of the Year, will perform their number one hits “Cruise” and “H.O.L.Y.,” and Fitz and The Tantrums will perform “HandClap,” from their self-titled album. Viewers will also have a chance to see the couples’ dances from the previous night one more time. The show will be packed with never-before-seen footage, including extended training packages, exclusive interviews with the couples and judges, and a glimpse of what’s to come on week four of “Dancing with the Stars.”
ETA8: Here’s the running order per George Pennachio. Interesting. Kind of appears that the people we expect to win are dancing FIRST in the dance off. I’ll be curious to see if this holds up.
