Ballroom dancing has made stars out of B-list celebs. Now see what it can do for you.
Dancing with the Stars Two things…
Dancing with the StarsTwo things caught me off guard tonight: 1) How worried I was when Jerry and Anna were the first named safe until next week. I mean, it seemed obvious that either he or George would be the next to go, but suddenly the same thought went through my mind as through Stacy's and Lisa's: What if the voting audience overturned the judges' calls once again, sending the better dancers home before the struggling ones? And 2) How thoroughly giddy and nostalgic seeing the "Time of My Life" dance from Dirty Dancing performed exactly as it was in the movie. It had me jumping up and down and pointing like a lunatic ("He's doing the knee turn!" "She's not invading his space!" "They're going to do the lift!!!"). It was a little weird, however, that those lyrics were sung by Bill Medley and his daughter. One more note before we say goodbye to Mr. Hamilton: Can someone please bind and gag Samantha Harris? She's cutting off her interviewees, she doesn't have a clue how to respond to their jokes and she keeps insisting that she, too, be included in all that backstage camaraderie. It's a bit sad, really but not as sad as watching George leave. He did go out on a high note, being seduced on the dance floor by Edyta and proposing marriage to Stacy. Tom's going to have to work twice as hard to balance out all that serious competition with humor. Sabrina Rojas Weiss
