‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 12 Week 5: Three Memorable Moments
The cast of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ season 12 showed their American pride this week, as each couple performed routines that honored our nation’s stars and stripes.
With the competition now at the halfway mark, the stakes have been raised, and each contestant brought their A-game in hopes of moving one quickstep closer to the mirror ball trophy.
So who actually made the grade? Relive the three most memorable moments from week 5′s performance night.
In the last two weeks, Kirstie Alley has experienced one mishap after another, from losing her shoe to falling down on the ballroom floor. Luckily, the Emmy-winning actress found her groove and delivered a sexy foxtrot that had spark, appeal — oh, and a shirtless Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Yum!
After last week’s disastrous performance, in which she received the night’s lowest score, former playmate Kendra Wilkinson tried to bounce back with a foxtrot that marked the show’s 1,000th competitive dance to date. Unfortunately, it tied for the lowest score of the night, but considering Kendra’s previous performances, we’ll take it.
Though there were a number of high-class performances, including ones from Chris Jericho, Romeo and Chelsea Kane, it was Hines Ward and Kym Johnson’s Rumba that truly wowed the judges (the dance received a score of 27, the highest of the night) and made us proud to be Americans. (Memo to Richard Gere: Watch your back.)
Hines Ward definately made it look so easy. He glided across the floor as if he’s been dancing for years and deserved the highest score of the night. I doubt he’s going anywhere tonight when one more star is sent home. Since it’s Americana week, it only makes sense to have Toby Keith on the show tonight. He’ll perform “American Soldier” for the troops serving overseas and “Should Have Been a Cowboy.” It all starts at 9 on ABC.
Who do you think is going home? I’d have to put my money on either Kendra or Petra Nemcova.
