Dancing With The Stars: Week 2 Results

(S07E05) It's time for the second week eliminations. The early week eliminations are always interesting times because, more often than not, the results are a little screwy. I'm reminded of past seasons that saw Jerry Springer, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Master P, to name a few, all hanging on far longer than their dancing abilities warranted. Would we see something similar tonight? The results, and a quick rundown of the results show performances, are after the jump.
Step Up (and Tamara!).
The musical guest this week was Jessica Simpson. She did two songs, her current hit "Come On Over" and a cover of the Robbie Williams track, "Angels". It didn't do much for me. She doesn't have a very dynamic voice, and her stage performance was a little dull. All was not lost though. Her two songs paved the way for two really good dance performances. On the first song, she was joined by Pasha Kovalev and Anya Garnis. Many of you will recognize them from their time on So You Think You Can Dance, I'm sure. The second number featured Cheryl and Maks.
And that brings us to the results. In case you are tracking the order to try and uncover some secret method to the "no particular order" madness, here they are in the order they were saved from elimination. Toni & Alec, Rocco & Karina, Cody & Julianne, Brooke & Derek, Susan & Tony, Warren & Kym, Maurice & Cheryl, Lance & Lacey, Misty & Maks, Cloris & Corky.
Of course, that means that Kim & Mark have been knocked out of the competition. Based on the comments we've seen on the site, that's just the result a lot of you were looking for. I'm a little disappointed by it. For one, Cloris is great, but this really is beyond her capabilities. We all know what we are going to get from her next week. Kim, on the other hand, really did have potential. But then, there's the rub. She had potential, but she couldn't put it all together to deliver the performance I think she was capable of. Because of that, it's an understandable elimination.
