Dancing With The Stars: Week 4 results

by Brett Love, posted Oct 17th 2007 2:22AM
Cameron & Edyta - Dancing With The Stars(S05E09)Tom opened the show talking about a night where controversy rocked the ballroom. I wouldn't call it so much rocking, as I would annoying, but that's just me. It does appear that some of that will be put to rest now. Len made a point of praising the pros for their excellent work, but warned them that he didn't want to see any more lifts. From here on out, they will incur a penalty from the judges.

They went right to the recap after that. Mark was really happy to be called the little engine that could. Floyd talked about his new experience, calling ballroom dancing better than hip-hop. Mel took the truck driver comment in good stride, asking for the truck driver vote. Jane was left trying to defend the lift again. Jenny ignored that lift nonsense and said she looks forward to continuing to improve. Cameron was excited about his three nines. As you would expect, Sabrina was thrilled to have the first perfect score of the competition.

Tom and Samantha ran through the scores once again before throwing it to Len for the announcement of the encore. This week they chose Cameron & Edyta's paso doble. I was actually expecting to see Sabrina & Mark here, after garnering the first perfect score of the season, but this was a good choice. It wasn't the best performance this week, but I think getting an encore could really help Cameron. The dancing is a big part, but at this point in the competition, so is the confidence. Being chosen for the encore can only help him in that regard.

Gloria Estefan was supposed to be the musical guest tonight but couldn't make it. In her stead, some of the DWTS singers performed "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You". Tony, Elena, Anna, and Maks took to the floor to perform with them. It was another of the fantastic pro performances that we've come to expect from the results show. I would have liked to see Gloria Estefan, but the band did a nice job standing in.

They went to the audience reactions and the crowd was rather excited, with one woman calling it the most fantastic season ever. That's pretty high praise right there. Another woman blamed Carrie's love life for her attitude the night before. Ashley DelGrosso, with her baby in tow, popped up to say that she did see some lifts in the performances. Ian Ziering thought Jennie was terrific.

Then it was off to the first of the results. Sabrina & Mark and Cameron & Edyta were first up. Both of them will be back next week. Before the commercial they teased that Wayne would be presiding over the reunion of Cheryl and Drew.

Tom announced that next week their special guest will be Jennifer Lopez, and then he threw it to Jimmy and Guillermo. Guillermo was in a neck brace and on crutches. Apparently he suffered an injury while trying to dance like a Cheetah Girl. This week, they were trying to explain how the dancers get so tan. Guillermo was impressed with Mel B's tan, so he went in to get his own. He came out shrunken and wrinkled. Wow, I really don't like Jimmy Kimmel.

Next up, it was time for the stars of dance performance with Wade Robson. It was a circus inspired performance with Wade running the show as the magician. It opened with Wade solo in front of a curtain. Then he opened the curtain to reveal the huge set out on the dance floor. He brought eight other dancers along for the ride. I'm told that one of them was So You Think You Can Dance vet Travis Wall, but the crazy wardrobe and makeup made it difficult to recognize any of the other dancers. There was a bit of the Wade Robson Zombiator in effect, but overall it was a very inventive number. Another solid entry for the stars of dance series.

After another break it was time for Cheryl & Drew to perform with Wayne. Wayne got the stage to himself to open as he sang "Danke Schoen". He got a nice reaction, but the crowd really cheered as Cheryl and Drew entered. The lift rule was definitely not in effect as Drew spun Cheryl and lifted her over his shoulders. Tom later revealed that they put the whole thing together in under twenty four hours. Considering that, it was a pretty impressive performance.

Off to the pre-taped package we got a piece on partnerships, featuring the famous duos of Robin Roberts & Diane Sawyer. Russel Simmons & Rev Run, and Joan Rivers & Melissa Rivers. Run kicked things off talking about trust. Joan and Melissa looked at Julianne as Helio's crew chief. Robin liked the Marie and Jonathan relationship. Talk of respect brought up Floyd and Karina and Jane and Tony. For chemistry they highlighted Cameron and Edyta. Joan thought that being a soap star helped in that regard. Robin liked Mel B and Maks. Finally, considering commitment, they brought up Mark's hard work.

Back to the results. Mark & Kym and Floyd & Karina were up next. Mark & Kym were safe! He continues to surprise me week after week. Floyd & Karina weren't a surprise, as they ended up in the bottom two. Samantha was backstage with Mark & Kym and Mel & Maks. Mark thanked the viewers and promised to work harder, harder, harder. Mel was still nervous, not knowing if they would be safe.

Another pre-taped package gave us a look at the fear the show brings. It was ok, but these packages really are becoming one of the weaker parts of the results show. I could go for another dance performance or two instead. Marie said the fear is doing something wrong with the steps. Jane said the show has been giving her nightmares. Cameron's fear is dropping Edyta. Sabrina is scared by walking down the stairs. Jennie's greatest fear was falling. She said that the fall earlier in the competition gave her confidence, because she learned that she can come back. Floyd's fear was letting Karina down. Mark's was failing. That's what keeps him practicing.

And with that, two more couples got results. Jennie & Derek and Helio & Julianne were put on the spot. Both of them were safe and moving on to week five. Rounding out the results Marie & Jonathan and Jane & Tony were safe, leaving Mel & Maks in the bottom two. That one did surprise me.

Before getting to the results Tom went to the judges. Carrie Ann was shocked that Mel & Maks were in the bottom two. Len said that if Floyd continues, he needs to work on his technique. When asked who should be going home, a surprisingly candid Bruno said that Melanie is the best dancer and should stay.

In the end, Floyd & Karina were eliminated. Floyd said that it was marvelous to be on the show and thanked everyone involved. He got a plug in for his fight and they headed off for their last dance. That was the expected elimination in most circles, but Floyd still comes out of the competition looking good. He took the competition seriously and put forth the effort. It all leaves me wondering just how powerful that Cuban voting block will turn out to be.

Erin will be back next week for round five. Until then, be sure to vote for your favorite couple in AOL's poll! Also, join AOL's Dancing With The Stars live chat (Mondays & Tuesdays, 7:30pm ET) and voice your opinion!

I love mel and maks. I think maks is the sexiest pro on the show. I'm glad mark is gone, I didn't hate him but let's face it he couldn't dance that well. My pick to make it to the top two are sabrina and mel. Those are just my picks. I think marie should go next, not that I hate her I like her alot it's just the show is getting tougher and I am worried about her health after that fainting spell.
Mel and sexy as hell maks all the way.

After all the years of hearing what a fabulous performer Wayne Newton is in Las Vegas, I was totally shocked to hear how awful he sounded. He seemed to run out of breath, as if he had been running before he sang and just couldn't catch his breath. I found it hard to enjoy Cheryl and Drew because I thought Wayne was going to pass out any minute. I think he needs a good physical and if there is nothing wrong with him, then the voice is gone and he should call it a day.

Sabrina and Mel B are both professional dancers and should not be in the competition.

The dancers and the stars are doing a great job. Tom and Drew were much better then Samantha and Tom. She needs to stay home with the new baby. Karrianne needs a pair of glasses. Wayne should not have sung it was painful for me to see him struggle. Kimmel you could lose and the time better spent. Sabrina while talented is still in hip hop mode and she should be in ballroom mode especially when the judges give her a perfect score -- smooth out and your there!

I CAN CERTAINLY DO WITHOUT JIMMY KIMMEL AND ASSOCIATE. TOTALLY UNNECESSARY AND NOT AT ALL FUNNY.

WAYNE NEWTON, NOT ONLY CAN'T DANCE...HE CAN'T SING. MAYBE BECAUSE OF ALL HIS FACIAL SURGERY AND HIS CORSETS .

In the very beginning I liked Dancing with the Stars - But now it totally leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I don't bother with watching any longer.

How could Mel B and Max be in the bottom two? Mel B is doing a fantastic job, and should have gotten perfect 10s before Sabrina. This voting system reminds me of the Ameerican voter situation, it is all messed up.

Mel B is one of the best IF not THE best dancer, yet she was almost voted off last night. How can that happen?
