This season of Dancing with the Stars is almost becoming boring. Brooke Burke showed why again in the latest edition. Here's a rundown:
Warren Sapp & Kym Johnson (Foxtrot) Len said it wasn't a classic foxtrot, but he liked the little spin that brought out Warren's personality. He went on to say that it wasn't Warren's best dance, calling him a little heavy. Bruno said that after a promising beginning, the technique fell away. Warren was flat footed, and he has to go back to the ease of movement he had earlier. Carrie Ann asked Warren what was going on, because he wasn't the usual Warren Sapp. Score: 21 (7,7,7)
Susan Lucci & Tony Dovolani (Paso Doble) Bruno said Susan can ride that bull with pride and dignity. Carrie Ann acknowledged that Susan has struggled with claiming her power, and then asked her to step on the judge's table and say she is doing good. Len thought it was right up there with all her best dances. I'd agree with that, with the qualifier that all of her best dances leave quite a bit to be desired. Score: 24 (8,8,8)
Maurice Greene & Cheryl Burke (Cha Cha) Carrie Ann said it was great, a perfect mix of form and freedom. Len compared their performance to cheap jewelry, which was a good thing. It was bright, sparkling, and dazzling. He finished saying this was Maurice's best dance. Bruno said happy days are here again for Maurice and urged him to trust his instincts. Score: 25 (8,9,8)
Cody Linley & Edyta Silwinska (Viennese Waltz) Len said a new partner takes a while to get comfortable. He thought they looked comfortable together, but called Cody a bit ploddy. Bruno said it was like watching a fledgling bird stretch their wings, but not quite be able to fly. The dance requires fluidity and control, and Cody was clumsy. Carrie Ann thought it was great, and that Julianne would be proud. Score: 22 (8,7,7)
Lance Bass & Lacey Schwimmer (Rumba) Bruno said barefoot in the park has never been more seductive and romantic. He called it an inspired take on the rumba. Carrie Ann, upon hearing about the bare feet, wondered why Lacey was rebelling. She went on to add that the risk was worth the payoff. Len, as expected, didn't get it. He said it didn't enhance the performance and it was a distraction. Ultimately, he told Lance & Lacey that they don't need all the nonsense. Score: 25 (9,7,9)
Brooke Burke & Derek Hough (Foxtrot) Carrie Ann said wow, wow, wow, wow, and added that Brooke's lines are ridiculous. She also agreed with Derek that Brooke is getting as good as some of the professional dancers. Something that garnered a "come on now" from me, but whatever. Len thought the performance became more than the sum of its parts, calling it truly fantastic. Bruno said it was a thrilling performance from start to finish. Score: 30 (10,10,10)
