EXTRA TASTY CREAMY Peta and Brant make a mess.
Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani: 81 total points (26 + 27 tonight) "Dumb it down for me," Leah begged Tony. Nope. Next!
Just kidding. The couple managed to create a convincingly clubby vibe (all the cool club kids wear violet bustiers and nude ankle boots) with their salsa. Purple is always a great shade on Tony, though I'm not sure why he had to be such a stickler and wear a shirt during the salsa. His gleeful reaction after Crazy Arms rubbed her coffee filter hands together and announced "That was like going to the hottest salsa club and you are the hottest salsa dancer!" was just as enjoyable as the dance itself, which featured a bunch of somewhat awkward lifts and the steps blatantly gearing up for them.
Leah made me laugh out loud after Bruno rambled on and on, when she admitted to Tom and Tony, "I didn't understand a single word he said." And it's true -- I didn't fare much better in my notes, which read "Look at you all gone salacious on me…you've got the face for it… you… tasty… ……." (He'd seriously been speaking for 30 seconds.) So no worries, Leah -- we're all in the dark with you there.
Bill Engvall and Emma Slater: 74 total points (23 + 27 tonight) "I hate this f---ing dance," Bill huffed and puffed as he tried to master a Las Vegas-themed quickstep. Channeling Elvis definitely helped him have fun with it, but the technique wasn't there for the most part. I did really, really love Bill and Emma's synchronized windup to their final point towards disco heaven as well as the red, white and blue overlays on the floor. Whee, Britain!
"The red girl is very distracting!" Bruno yelled. Do we think he even knows who Emma is?
Hidden gem: Emma's head as the COVETED MIRRORBALL TROPHY
If Bill hadn't stepped it up so profoundly in Team Spooky Bom Bom's freestyle, I'd say of course he should have been eliminated. But there he was, at the center of the stage, directing the flow of a haunted group freestyle. He was a marvel! And he didn't look nervous at all. He's got so much heart and he manages to make things funny without seeming over-the-top cheesy. The guy might still have a safe week in him yet.
What about you? Is Snooki's departure a travesty, or does it make sense? Did Jack get three times more handsome this week? Did you already know what the fox says? Did you care?
Now here it is, your moment of Len....
