Dancing With the Stars Season 9 Episode 9 (11/16/09)
There may only have been four couples left this week, but there was a great deal of dancing nonetheless.
Each pair put on a ballroom number, a Latin dance (with a 15-second solo), and a dance that each couple had to prepare a few weeks ago in case they were forced into a results show dance-off.
Got it? Here's a rundown of all performances...
Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson
Tango: Not very smooth. Sloppy footwork and a final dip that was hesitant. Even the music was poor. Bruno referred to the routine as "pretty tragic."
Samba: This was more like it. Donny was comfortable and enthusiastic. He even dove underneath Kym at the end, improving greatly upon his first score
Jitterbug: Man, this is a long show. Let's turn it over to Bruno for a critique: "Upbeat, full of vigor."
Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough
Viennese waltz: Krupa's emotions were on full display here. "This waltz had the grace of angels in heaven," said Bruno, while Len added that the pair's hold "is as good as any professionals."
Cha-cha: Eh, no need for Krup to have lip-synced to "Can't Get You Out of My Head," but still a fun number. Bruno, of course, took the obvious route with his praise: "Ooh, I just can't get you out of my bed! You are just natural sex. It just oozes from everywhere."
Salsa: Shake those hips, Joanna! Len dubbed the performed as "hot, tasty and full of spice!"
Kelly Osbourne and Louis van Amstel
Rumba: We thought Kelly was as confident and beautiful as she's been all season. The judges? They didn't agree. "You have turned into an absolutely competent dancer," Len said. Gee, thanks a lot, man!
Quickstep: Kelly bounced back from the above, backhanded compliment and conquered the quickstep. "There's two people I'm sure are really happy," Len said. "That's your mum and me." Awww. We guess.
Cha-cha: This routine was short, as DWTS didn't leave enough time at the end. "It may have been a quickie, but it worked for me!" Bruno said. Of course he did.
Mya and Dmitry Chaplin
Waltz: No hesitation for Mya during this routine. She oozes confidence, even if she holds back her emotions on the floor. "I thought it was an absolute joy to watch," Len raved.
Salsa: Mya might as well be a professional dancer at this point. Her Latin solo practically scorched our eyeballs "Sensational!" yelled Bruno, while Len even said: "I was mesmerized by your buttocks, couldn't stop looking at it, I've got to admit it."
Cha-cha: Short, but technically great. Take it away, Bruno: "It was like an action-packed trailer for a blockbuster! And I want to be first in line to see the whole feature!"
