Dancing With The Stars Week 5 – Recap and Scores – Oct. 17th

Last night on Dancing With The Stars, it was 80s night.  An era in fashion that should stay in the past, forever.  Honestly, after the impressive performances last week for the movie themes, I was pretty bored with what the 80s had to offer.  There were a couple of good dances, but overall… I was let down.

Hope Solo started the night with a tango.  Pretty good, not great. Her non-chemistry with Maks is painful.  She can’t act and her attitude is crap.  Scores: 8, 8, 8 = 24

Carson Kressley came out to a goofy jive that was of course entertaining but far from “good dancing”… but hello, you are not going to get that out of him this season.  Anna is being a very good sport about it too.  Scores: 6, 6, 7 = 19

Nancy Grace came out with a rumba and well, it was more of the same.  She’s just too dang stiff and she can’t get into character.  Grrrr.  Scores: 7, 7, 8 = 22

J.R. Martinez was of course my favorite of the night with a great samba…. seriously. It was GOOD!  Finally he got a 10 too!  Bout time!  Scores: 9, 9, 10 = 28

Rob Kardashian was probably my second favorite of the night… with a really good rumba and a lot of passion.  Nice work Rob!  Scores: 9, 8, 8 = 25

Chaz Bono was unfortunately still on the dance floor with a samba.  Sure, he stepped it up more.  But watching him dance is just blah every week.  I love Lacey, but he’s got to go.  Scores: 7, 7, 7 = 21

David Arquette did a tango and I loved it.  I love him every week.  He’s getting better and better and his spirit is always into it.  Scores: 8, 9, 8 = 25

Ricki Lake was the biggest disappointment of the night with her foxtrot.  And that’s only because she’s been owning the dance floor each week and last night was not good.  Hopefully next week she will bring back her A game and win us back.  Scores: 8, 8, 8 = 24

So to wrap it up, we’ve got J.R. at the top and Chaz Bono at the bottom of the leader board.  How will it play out tonight?
