  • David Allan Grier and Kym Johnson say goodbye...

    8.0
    Which really makes me mad!!! I can't stand Lawrence and Edyta, and I was super excited that they got sent to the bottom two! I was really hoping they went home tonight...Oh well. It's not like they're going to win or anything. I'll just have to put up with them a little while longer... I was really surprised Steve-O and Lacey aren't in the bottom two. Their scores still weren't as good as they could have been, but they fans pulled them through. That's good though because they're funny and I like them. The performances were good. I really like Max and Karina's dance.moreless
  • The look on David Alan Grier's face, at the end of the show, says it all.

    8.0
    The night started off with the Judges favourite dance performance, the Viennese Waltz, by Lil'Kim & Derek Hough. The first performer was Etta James, 71, singing "At Last". This is her signature song, which went to #2 on the Billboard for R&B chart in 1961. Max Cherkovkiy & Karina Smirnoff danced. They were perfect together symbolizing the love story of the song. As they are a romantic couple off the show, it showed in the performance. Macey 's Stars of Dance performance was from La Reve. We saw amazing acrobatics & synchronized dancing. For the tween set, Demi Lovato, 16, sang from her debut album, Don't Forget, La La Land. The dancers were Lacey Schwimmer's older brother, Benji Schwimmer & his partner, Tori Smith. The biggest surprise for the night was Steve-O & Lacey Schwimmer being safe, given they had the lowest score, 18, on Monday night. The 3 Stars with the lowest combined scores were Ty Murray & Chelsie Hightower, Lawrence Taylor & Edyta Sliwinska and David Alan Grier & Kym Johnson. Lawrence Taylor & Edyta Sliwinska danced off against David Alan Grier & Kym Johnson. Not withstanding, David & Kym improved their score, from 22 to 26, it was not enough to keep them from elimination. I was very surprised Lawrence didn't go after Steve-O was saved. Now we are 8.moreless
