Dancing With The Stars: Week 6 results - VIDEO

Dancing With The Stars
(S07E13) I think it's safe to say that everyone came into the results show this week on the same page. Whether you are for Cloris staying in the competition, or busy making sacrifices to your deity of choice as you ask for her dismissal, her fate was the big question. The judges certainly made it a tough go for Cloris fans this week, awarding only 15 points, but you just never know what will happen when the fans get to the phones. Did Cloris make it through to week 7? We'll have that answer after the jump, along with a look at Missy Elliott and The Pussycat Dolls, Michael Flatley, and more dancing kids.

The performances got off to a weak start with the encore going to the group hip hop number. I wasn't very impressed with it on performance night, and it didn't gain anything in a second look. Things picked up when the dancing kids came out. This was the first kids match-up where I actually thought there was a sure winner, and it showed in the voting.

Craig and Samantha started things off with a fantastic cha cha. You might recall their sister, Cara, as the too cute for words 8 year old that was on the show in season six. Her older brother and sister did the family proud. There was nothing negative you could say about their performance. The judges agreed, with Michael calling it sensational and noting that their parents must be very proud. Bruno said it was fantastic and they had great technical precision. Carrie Ann called them poetry in motion.

That was followed by Simon and Lucy with a samba. They were also very good, once again making you marvel at just how amazing the youngsters are. But they were just below the level of Craig and Samantha. It seemed they lacked the polish and precision of their competitors. Carrie Ann said they were wonderful and praised Lucy's shapes. Michael thought it was great to see young people dancing like that. Bruno said they really looked like they were having fun out there, and praised Lucy's extenstions. In the end, they offered a rare unanimous decision for Craig and Samantha. We'll see them return later in the season.

The Pussycat Dolls were up next, with a special appearance by Missy Elliott. Perhaps it's just not my thing, but for me, if you've seen one Pussycat Dolls performance, you've seen them all. The music is just ok, and there wasn't a lot of dance to it. Missy Elliott was good, but her part in the show was rather short. It didn't help that the main microphone went wonky at the end of the perfromance. Not the worst musical guest we've seen on the results show, but far from my favorite.

And that gets us to special guest judge Michael Flatley performing Capone, from Celtic Tiger. It was a very cool performance that got off to a great start with Flatley projected in silhouette on the big screen. Eventually he appeared on a box in the middle of the dance floor to finish the number. There might have been a few too many closeups of his feet for my taste, but overall it was great. Have a look at the extended version of the performance he did on the show in this video.

And that brings us to the results. In the first go round Lance & Lacey and Cody & Julianne/Edyta were safe. They returned later to announce that Warren & Kym were safe, while Susan & Tony were in the bottom two. That was followed with Brooke & Derek being safe, and Cloris & Corky in the bottom two. That meant that Maurice and Cheryl were safely moving on to week seven.

In the end, it's the end of the line for Cloris & Corky, at least as far as the competition is concerned. Cloris said that she wasn't ready to leave, so she'll be back next week with a pretty dress, sitting in the audience. That's fine by me. I'm looking forward to the show moving on as the stakes get raised. More performances, more pressure, and hopefully more outings that are worthy of 10s.

Seems like people are pretty cool with the idea of a democracy until "their star" all of a sudden fails to get the popular vote. Then all of a sudden it's a terrible idea.
I think this is a popularity contest and should be enjoyed as such. It's not called "Dancing with the most unbelievably talented dancers" it's called "Dancing with the Stars." People vote for the people they want to see dancing. That's not always going to be the best dancer, but rather the most interesting story/entertainer etc... http://dancingstarsabc.livejournal.com/

That hip-hop number was just as horrible the second time. It really showed (more than any other type of dancing) who the good dancers are.

Susan was at her worst during that hip-hop number. Will be happy to see her go next week, then Maurice and then Warren.

Why is it that every season theres someone like Cloris that has no business making it past the first week, squeaking by week after week. Totally untalented and un qualified for the show to begin with and it takes forever till people wise up and vote them off.
Of course, that same could be said about Obama ...

Omg...................thank you "willy the impeached" that was hilarious! I think it was time for Cloris to go and I would have liked to see her go last week instead of Toni Braxton. Ms. Braxton would have been a competitor and fun to watch in the next few weeks. I also think it was shame that Kim Kardashian went before Cloris - as Kim is very glamorous and beautiful and might have improved in her dancing with more time spent on the show. Goodbye Cloris - it was fun! Now the show will get seriously interesting!

Really? You're going there? Come on. That's pathetic.
It's more like Bush being Re-elected than that. But judging by your other comments, you're just a right-winger who is scared of Obama and progress in this nation. And I didn't even vote for him, I voted for Bob Barr.
Compare it to Idol or any other voting show...the best almost never wins and the worst always sticks around way too long.

The "main microphone" didn't "go wonky at the end of the performance" (of the Pussycat Dolls) -- that was an audio enhancement called a vocoder [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocoder]. Think Cher's song "Do You Believe in Love?".

I was also disappointed in the kids who were chosen to move on. Sure, they were technically sound, but they didn't smile once -- not during their performance, and not when they were announced the winner! In fact, since I couldn't remember which names went with which couple, I thought the other couple had won because they were smiling! I didn't like the smugness of the winners at all. That little sister telling her big sister not to be such a diva might have been right on the money.

Well it was either time for Susan or Cloris to go home. As much as I don't want to say it, Carrie Ann spoke the truth and she saw results!
It was kind of funny when Cloris just sat on the dance floor saying that she wasn't ready to go!
I am sure Cloris will be in the audience watching everyone and putting her two cents in!

Susan was not necessarily in the bottom two. Samantha said as much. My guess is Maurice is in the bottom two and abc put Susan there for suspense. Either way it was time for Cloris to go......what Carrie Ann said was harsh but very, very true. Hopefully it knocked some sense to all those that were voting for Cloris.
