Dancing With the Stars recap: Thanks for the M&M-ories

A week ahead of the Switch-Up, the original couples offer their spins on "The Most Memorable Year of Your Life''
Ep. 03 | Aired Mar 31, 2014


Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke: 30/40 Though Drew's dancing ability leaves something to be desired (hey, I'm pretty sure that's the point of this show), the sights and sounds of this week's waltz absolutely delighted me. The only thing that would've made the experience better is if Nashville stars Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen were on hand to sing "Fade Into You" themselves. (Hello?! You are ABC! Make it happen! Also, everyone be sure and read my Nashville recaps. You don't need to actually watch the show, I promise.)

The dimmed lighting combined with Cheryl's taupe evening gown -- where did she end and the atmosphere begin? Probably near the deep V in her back -- provided for a sultry yet classic vibe. And whirling a camera around a giant chandelier never hurt anyone either. Just ask Beauty or the Beast.

Drew paid homage to 2005, the year his son Connor was born a.k.a. the year he slimmed down and juiced up (the California version of juicing, i.e. anything green) so he could be alive after Connor grew old enough to remember him. The kid is quite the card -- telling Tom he thought his dad performed well… "And I need her to teach me some dance moves."

He got his wish! Okay, okay, now put him down.


Whoa, was this Tom Bergeron's first time proclaiming something atop a table?

In life, who knows, but on this show, I think yes! He's a regular Cody Simpson, that Tom.

Your thoughts, DANCMSTRs? Are you excited for the one-week Switch-Up, or does it send you into a murky and completely sparkle-free rage?
