Last night on "Dancing With the Stars," Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd performed a sexy rumba that knocked Carrie Ann Inaba off her seat.
Gilles Inspires Babymaking On Two Shows
In the pre-performance package, Gilles talked about wanting to perform a rumba so hot that it would "be responsible for a lot of babies." They delivered the goods, as Carrie Ann gushed, "let the baby-making begin!" before falling off her chair. Gilles and Peta earned a near perfect score of 29.5, putting them at the top of the leaderboard.
Tom Bergeron had the best line of the night. After Carrie Ann took a tumble, he commented that he didn't actually expect her to go into baby-making position!
Speaking of babymaking, it was a successful week for Gilles on two shows this week. On his ABC Family show, "Switched At Birth," his character Angelo won a $5 million lawsuit against the hospital after the court determined that they were responsible for switching his daughter at birth. Unfortunately for Angelo, there appears to be another baby mama out there looking to cash in.
Emmitt & Cheryl Channel Toucan Sam
Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke performed a Toucan Sam-themed number set to "Copacabana." It was difficult to focus on their dancing, as their costumes were so distracting. The dark-colored fringe in the lower part of Cheryl's dress make it look dirty, while Emmitt's pants drew a lot of attention to his crotch area.
Still, their dancing earned a score of 29.
Kirstie & Maks Take Digs At Other Contestants
Wow, I wouldn't have expected jolly Kirstie to take digs at the other contestants. First, she commented that since Bristol Palin left, there were now only great dancers left. Then, she "didn't name names," but suggested that some of the other contestants were not great entertainers.
Kirstie and Maksim Chmerkovskiy performed a quickstep set to "Mrs. Robinson," throwing a bone to the cougars who were crushing on Maks. They earned a score 25.5, their highest score of the season.
Kelly is a Gloomy Soap Star
Does this girl ever smile? We get that she's a hard worker and that she's taking this competition very seriously, but her constant gloomy expression really detracts from her likability as a performer.
We know that she's having a difficult time juggling both "DWTS" and "General Hospital," but the other contestants have busy lives, as well. You'd think she'd be in better spirits considering that she gets to dance with a hot guy like Val every week.
Kelly and Val had a bit of an off week, earning a score of 24.5.
Team Human Jump Rope
"Team Call Me Maybe" delivered the goods on a high-school themed freestyle, earning a score of 29.5. An injured Melissa Rycroft managed to pull through, even serving as a human jump rope for Apolo.
Melissa & Tony, Sabrina & Louis, Apolo & Karina, and Shawn & Derek will perform their individual routines tonight.
