Dancing with the Stars Season 21, Week 5 – LIVE BLOG

Switch Up Week!! Β I’ll be very curious to see how they edit all the packages tonight, who gets pimped, who gets slammed (and if it’s a reflection of the pro or another agenda) and so on.

And if I hear that we “voted for the switch-up” one more time, I may scream. Such a lie. An easy to prove lie. Why they continue the sham, I don’t know.

T-minus 15 Minutes…

Damn, had my contractor still in my house 5 minutes after the show started, so I’m running behind.Β  Loved the opening number, wish we had more of them. πŸ™‚

As a result, I missed most of Tamar.

Most of what Louis said in his rehearsal package is pretty much what I’ve always thought he thought about himself. πŸ˜‰

Hayes is a very good dancer – but something was wrong with his feet in his V. Waltz. They were moving too much, not smooth enough.Β  Bruno said it – messy.

Got interrupted again – did Maks rip on the choreo or did I hear it wrong?

No kicks or flicks, but man did I love the dance that Paula and Mark did – he did good with her and it looked like they had a lot of fun. πŸ™‚

F*#K. I’m goin over to the dark side of shippers. πŸ™‚ It’s all out there, I hope the shippers are happy. πŸ™‚ Did Alek blush through the entire package?

I agree with Julianne – he has potential but he’s not quite there yet. He’s a little stiff in spots, but he’s getting there.

Wow…they are a gorgeous couple though. They should date. πŸ˜‰

Really good cha cha from Bindi – still throwing her arms away a tiny bit, but I suspect that she’s so….enthusiastic that it’s going to happen.Β  Nice package editing. πŸ˜‰Β  She is a bright summer day, Bruno!! Lovely.

Bindi just makes me happy. Her partner got through a whole series of sentences without sounding like a jerk.Β  And please with the airing the mics – rehab video. :::rolls eyes:::

I’d like that 10 a whole lot better if it wasn’t from his brother.

LOL – love Wit for telling Carlos to suck it.

I think that was a good dance from Carlos, but I was eating. He needs a good score for sure.Β  But three 10’s? I shouldn’t have been eating I guess.

LOL Derek – “Did it really say that?” So gullible. Dude, a producer can’t give a polygraph! Silly boy.

Holy crap – that Tango kicked some serious ass.Β  The choreography was probably the best Derek has done this season, even better than last week I think. Of course, two very different dances, but WOW.Β  Alexa just nailed it.Β  I think she’s turned it around and will go back to Mark with a new perspective.

I would have given it a 40, but I would have given Bindi a 30 last week. I’m conflicted – are they helping her or was it a 40. Or both?

For those not watching All Access cameras, Mark and Alexa are seriously hugging it out. Break through? Also, Bindi, Derek, Carlos, Alexa, Mark all hugging each other. Very nice to see.

Holy CRAP again!! Andy, where have you been? That was an amazing AT! Daaaaaamn.

Hmmm….think I liked Andy better than Nick. I am just not impressed with him. Β Both Alexa and Andy had a better dance and better choreo.

I see the judges might be with me.

Damn, I didn’t realize that Tom’s father had actually passed, I thought he was just ill. I’m so sorry Tom. πŸ™

My judging of Maks – much better this time around than last time. He really tried to give constructive critique most of the time, but cut the BS “because I can” reasoning for a 10. You’re no better than CAI (who missed a massive “lift” in Nick’s routine again this week) when you do that.
