Jillian and John: Points off for using Britney's "Toxic," just 'cause I said so. J&J were great as usual, but because I just watched Olympic figure skating, I now know there are beautiful ways to get in and out of lifts as well as unattractive ways to get in and out of lifts. Their lifts? Not so beautiful. Sorry, guys. Sir Cranky, Dorothy Hamill and Mark Lund all raved. Score: 58.3/60.
Kristy and Lloyd: Danced to "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers. At first, I didn't dig this choice. But as the two skated, they connected. You could feel the heat between them. It was a very passionate, romantic routine as the judges pointed out. When Summer asked them what changed between the first episode and this latest effort, I almost spit out the water I had just been drinking. That's all I'm going to say about that. Score: 58.7.
So we have one more episode to go, this Thursday, when the two pairs must bring it for their last free-skate. The momentum is clearly in Kristy and Lloyd's favor, but hey, anything can happen. Bettina Charles
