Last week, Elisabetta went home, and thank goodness, because she was super boring. The gimmick for tonight's show is that the stars will each tell a personal story through their dances.
Rob Kardashian and Cheryl (Foxtrot): Rob is dancing about the time when he lost his dad. I can really tell that Rob isn't a naturally a good dancer, but Cheryl is such a great teacher, that he pulls off a deacon routine. The wardrobe department has done the impossible and made tiny Cheryl Burke look really quite plump. The dance is pretty, flows nicely, and has an appropriate amount of emotion to it. Len thinks he was properly dashing. Bruno thinks he had a good amount of Frank Sinatra's charm. Carrie Ann is seeing great progress. Scores: 8,8,8
Chynna Phillips and Tony (Rumba): Chynna is dancing about the year her one hit "Hold On" came out and the year she gave up alcohol. She is dancing to that song, which seems a bit hokey. The rumba is such a dumb dance, I never really enjoy them. Given that starting point, Chynna's is fine. It is very slow and dramatic, and over the top with the hokey. Bruno thinks it was seductive and stylish. Carrie Ann loves her lines and her connection to the music. Len thinks she just took the competition to a new level. Really? I just found it boring.
