'Dancing with the Stars' - 'Performance #3: Results' Recap

Aiden & Edyta rumba
(S10E07) The eliminations this week on 'Dancing with the Stars' wasn't surprising at all. Right off the bat, Chad & Cheryl are safe. Chad immediately hugs Jake, of all people, then tries his best to hug Cheryl. Jake & Chelsie are also announced safe. Erin explains that her foot got caught, while Len commented that he wanted to see more of Aiden and less of Edyta. Edyta always had the issue of compensating for her partners with the combination of overly sexy motions and a lack of clothes.

Between the clips, there were these cheesy trailers for fake movies with the contestants in them. The only good one had to be Tony as "Glambo" running around, even making Maks turn in confusion.

Encore - Pam & Damian's Rumba - That sheet didn't really help do justice to Pam's movements; she had some strong hip action. I'm still weary about Damian's choreography, but it continues to get Pam through week after week. The two get touchy at the end, but it makes me worry if Damien is in a relationship or not.

Musical Guest - Sade, "Baby Father" - While I'm confused by the outfit choices of the backup singers, we get a steamy performance from Damian & Chelsie. Sometimes I forget how flexible Chelsie actually is because she doesn't do lifts with her celebrity. She spun with such abandon, and I really do think that some of the cross training from ballet at a young age paid off. The results continued and Evan & Anna are safe.

Musical Performance
- Mark Ballas & Youth Performers - All the professionals show their childhood pictures and videos. Maks ended up having such cute photos because of embarrassing costumes. Mark, Derek, and Julienne danced together since they were young. Louis had long hair and Edyta still didn't wear much. Tony surprisingly fought other dancers to save his partner; possibly the reason why he's so protective of Kate. As the young performers start to dance, the dancers weren't perfectly synchronized. They all had a lot of potential, but I wasn't a big fan of the choreography or the outfits given to the girls. I will congratulate the dancers for doing a good job with what they had, but Mark should reconsider his choreography skills. Two more couples are safe: Nicole & Derek and Pamela & Damian.

Macy's Stars of Dance - Nuttin' But Stringz and Tiler Peck - Travis Wall choreographed the very interesting routine. If the name sounds familiar, he was a contestant and now a choreographer for 'So You Think You Can Dance.' The performance is a lot of fun to watch with the combination of ballet, contemporary, and hip-hop. I totally understand why Tiler Peck is the principal dancer, she was amazing. Unlike the Mark Ballas choreographed dance, Travis knows what he's doing and the performance was dynamic.

Musical Guest - Sade, "Sweetest Taboo" - While the dancers were good, it made me wonder whether the artists have some preference for their dancers versus the professionals. I also found it interesting that the stage's stairs were covered up for no real reason, Sade never moved from her spot, even marching in place by the end. It makes me think that the Sade/diva rumors are true.

The next couple safe is Erin & Maks. After the commercial break, the final three contestants' fate was finally announced. Kate & Tony are safe, leaving the bottom two as Niecy & Louis and Aiden & Edtya. The couple with the lowest total score is Aiden & Edyta. Kate actually looked a bit disappointed that Aiden was gone.

Next week, the performers get music from movies. I have that feeling that Kate will get something really Disney as a tribute to her children, but wouldn't it be amazing if she had to dance to something themed like 'She-Devil' or 'Death Becomes Her'? Were you surprised by this week's elimination? Leave comments below.

OK, dont know what happened? I was replying to Judit's comment...I so agree just plain annoying! I couldn't even watch or even listen to her show years ago, I would make my daughter go in the other room if she was watching it on the livingroom TV where I could hear it, I couldnt take her voice or the way she treated her husband, I know now he's no angel either, but the way she would always make him look like a fool just made me sick to my stomach...my daughter wont even watch her anymore...what can I say, she was only 8, she just wanted to see all the babies! It def. wasn't to see Kate! Even she thought she was mean & felt sorry for Jon after a while, wow was it that obvious? a 8 or 9 year old can see it? Dayyyummm!

Well maybe its not so rigged?!?!? as Kate took a dive last night, Oh well :(......later moma, time to go back & tend to your 8 or 9 kids!! Yes, I agree, she should have left the first week, after watching Shannon Daughtery dance, it was def. a bad choice as to who was to leave! Shannon out danced her by a mile! I dont care how much people hate Shannon, she still did a much better job! What a big WTF?? when they announced she was leaving!! Well I guess big boobs will have to keep up the ratings now! LOL.. & Lexi I agree w/ ya, that BS "I'm doing it for the kids" is getting a lil old & irritating! Uhhh Please... Yea right your doing it for the kids, your doing it for the money & attention, why not just be honest Kate! You dont hear Pamela up there spitting out "I'm doing it for my boys"...Nope she's doing it to pay all her back taxes, LMAO!!!

Look it's obvious Kate is one of the worst dancers, and yea she should go next, but if you are honest about, whether you like her or not, Aiden danced worse than she did this week. So I'm okay with his elimination. Next week, maybe it will be Kate.

I think it is really not fair to the other contestants that Kate Gosselin is on every talk show there is the past two weeks promoting her new book and talking about Dancing with the Stars. No wonder she is not any good she can't be practicing where would she have the time?. How can the producers put up with that?? She is probably getting votes bec ause her face is on TV every day on all the talk shows. " I am so sick of her saying I am doing this for my kids!"

I absolutely support Kate. Well, I support her as a mother, not as a dancer. She had an adolescent husband who was basically incapable of functioning properly, who then ran around on her and has totally demonstarted himself as a douche. She may have been hard on him, but I suspect she would have much prefered a partner instead of another child. Blech.

And this class envy that people have - resentment for those that do well and the subsequent desire to tear them down because they haven't been able to be successful in their own life. Pffft! Hate much?

Good for her for arranging her life so that those kids get to live a good life with great experiences and HELL YEAH she has help...and why shouldn't she? Jeez...such jealous people.

Guess Who

Let me guess...a man done you wrong? You feel overworked and unappreciated for all you do? You're a strong, confident, "real" woman and too bad if people can't deal with that? The phrase "you go girl" is a regular part of your vocabulary?

People don't resent Kate for being "successful" (her amazing ability to have more children at once than a German Shepard) they don't like her attitude, her treatment of her parents and husband, the constant pity parties she throws for herself on national television...and then there is the dancing - or lack thereof.

I really love this show and would hate to think that it is rigged. Kate needs to go. The only exercise she likes is talking. You cannot loose weight by talking. Tired of listening. She has got to go.

I agree with you 100 %. How come I don't hear on TV the comments we are making. We usually hear of how hard poor kate has it. She has it better than most divorced mother's in the world. Glad her ex is taking her back to court. She is a baby sitter . Good for Kathy Lee
Giffird that said it as it is on TV this AM on her show with Ronda.

Kate should have been out long ago. She certainly isn't there by votes.
This whole show this year looks like silicone valley. Glad to see the hostess has started to cover a little more.

Why does this show look like it was filmed in 1985 in the biggest, most tackily-overdecorated Beefsteak Charlie's in the world?
