I have thoughts. Lots and lots of thoughts. But I wanted to hear from you first…
As Tom Bergeron announced that this week’s Dancing with the Stars theme was “Spring Break,” several things went through my mind.
- What is this “Spring Break” you speak of, and how can I get one?
- Does this mean Val will be shirtless?!
- Will Bruno take a body shot off of Len?
- Something tells me the JV dance troupe will be out in full force. I can feel it.
The night was mediocre for me. And it wasn’t just because Val was NOT shirtless (really Dancing with the Stars costume department?). Noah’s bare torso sort of canceled out that mishap. The night was boring for me because the dances were meh. It’s obvious that the contestants are tired. Their lack of energy translated onto the screen.
But there was a bright star in the middle of a lackluster group of contestants. That star is Riker.
It’s my favorite week on Dancing with the Stars—Disney Night! The ballroom is full of beautiful ball gowns. Naturally, a boy comes by and whips that fluffy gown off to reveal a shorty fringe, but I don’t mind. I have bigger concerns. What happened to Donald Duck’s hat and why is Julianne’s hair pink? We may never know.
It’s interesting to see what the choreographers will create, knowing that the audience has a picture of what it’s supposed to look like. To be honest, that can help you or hurt you.
Let’s take Kym for example:
Not once in the literally thousands of times I watched the movie did Mary Poppins ever show Burt her sternum. Who needs a spoonful of sugar when clearly cleavage helps the medicine go down?
And then there’s Jessie from Toy Story:
What in the world? I can’t believe Disney executives allowed the costume designers to shop in the adult Halloween section at Party City. I’m also unclear why Jessie is dancing with Tony Manero from Saturday Night Fever. I’m almost positive that wasn’t a Disney movie.
Moving on! Here’s the breakdown of dances:
This week on Dancing with the Stars, the producers do everything in their power to make you cry. Each contestant must perform a routine which symbolizes their “Most Memorable Year.” The dance is all about love, respect, honor, determination and whimsical costumes. And since most memorable moments revolved around death and loss, the entire cast, including the judging panel, found themselves fighting back tears for an entire two hours.
Of course, there were extenuating circumstances that had me scratching my head verses shedding a tear or two. I’m looking at you, Farmer. Let’s break it down, shall we?
