Ricki Lake In the Spotlight For Movie Night on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ [VIDEOS]
Lights, camera, action! It was movie theme week on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ and the spotlight was on Ricki Lake who received the first 10’s of the season. She danced a tango to the Alfred Hitchcock theme from ‘Psycho,’ that judge Bruno Tonioli called the perfect ‘blockbuster.’ Ricki and her professional partnerDerek Hough are in first place, for the third week in a row. Can someone smell the mirror ball trophy already?
J.R. Martinez, who left everyone in tears with his emotional performance last week, showed his humorous side this week. His tango to the theme from ‘The Pink Panther’ got mixed reactions from the judges, but was enough for second place.
What would movie night be without the theme to ‘Rocky.’ Chaz Bono, the classic underdog, who was in last place last week, gave a performance that had judge Carrie Ann Inaba and Cher, who was in the audience, in tears. His Paso Doble received three 7’s which is Chaz’s highest score yet.
The last place spot belongs to Carson Kressley this week. His Viennese Waltz to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ theme involved swords and a number of missed steps. Despite the lack of fancy footwork, judge Len Goodman called it a dance people at home would picked up the phone to vote for. Carson doesn’t have much rhythm but he is the most fun to watch.
Since it’s movie night, Blake Shelton will be on tonight’s show to sing his ‘Footloose’ remake. Julianne Hough and her ‘Footloose’ co-star Kenny Wormald will also hit the dance floor during the results show on ABC at 9. So who do you think will be sent home? After last week’s surprising elimination of Kristin Cavallari, it’s anyone’s guess. I’m betting on Nancy Grace. Carson may be in last place but his humor will carry him through a few more weeks, and Chaz has a slew of supporters voting for him. I don’t think he’ll go anywhere anytime soon either. With Cher as your mother, votes are easy to come by.
