Skating with Celebrities: Part 6 of 7

skating part 6Part 6 of 7? You know what that means... we aren't going to find out who the winner is until Thursday next week.

This episode was really a drag. And when I say "drag", I mean that they really dragged this one out to fill an entire hour without actually announcing the winners. The episode began with a recap of who got voted off when, and then all the skaters returned for encore performances. Todd Bridges is awkward and mechanical on the ice, reminding everybody why he was the first one to be booted off this competition. Kurt Browning is sporting a bald head? In the middle of the show all the teams resurrected previous routines that they skated, an element otherwise known as a time suck.

Tonight the skaters will perform a short program and later this week they'll perform a free skate (just like the Olympics!). The technical elements they must master tonight are a multi-jump sequence, a spin with four revolutions, and an above-the-shoulder lift (which shouldn't be a problem, since both teams have already done that).

Jillian and John's short program was to Britney Spears' Toxic and it appears as though Jillian is only wearing a red bra. They successfully maneuvered every requirement except a lift where Jillian went face-first down John's backside and nearly landed on her head. There's just something weird about these two (maybe they need to sleep together like the other team). Their programs are always high energy but are also choppy.

Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler, my personal favorites in this competition, wisely chose the much slower Unchained Melody for their short program. These two really do slow skates well, but it's not as hot as their performance two weeks ago. They totally nailed every element, except for a little stumble before the final lift, but they recovered well and ended the skate with the end of the music. The judges were blown away.

Kristy and Lloyd end the program just .4 ahead of Jillian and John. The free skate is next Monday this Thursday. We'll also find out the winner that night and I think it's pretty clear who is the better skating pair: Kristy & Lloyd.

Thanks, hessian. I kept waiting for Scott and Summer to say when the final was and I didn't stick around for the promo because I ASSUMED it was next Monday. That's what I get...

Didn't watch the promo at the end of last night's episode? The final episode is THURSDAY, after the AMERICAN IDOL results show.

Monady, FOX is airing 2 all-new episodes of 24.
