Dancing with the Stars kicked off the second week of competition with all twelve couples still in contention as they strutted their quickstep and jive routines on the hit ABC show.
On Tuesday night the first celebrity competitor and pro partner will be eliminated based on week 1 and 2 combined scores and viewer votes.
The strongest performances thus far have been executed by Katherine Jenkins, Roshon Fegan and William Levy. Check out the leaderboard standings below:
The weakest performer has been former tennis pro Martina Navratilova. She wore a lacy bra and salsa harem-esque pants that did nothing to enhance her on-stage presence during her jive. She gave the appearance of a little kid at her first dance recital, constantly watching her partner to see what to do next. Dare we suggest that dancing just isn’t her thing?
Sherri Shepherd has been treated with kid gloves by the judges during the first two weeks of competition. Could it be that network exec’s are partial to the co-host of The View because she can continue to generate a great deal of buzz on her own ABC show in the weeks to come? She was definitely channeling the Flintstones with her costume choice last night.
Another celebrity struggling early on is Little House on the Prairie actress Melissa Gilbert. She and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy have executed the moves well but her fear of failure is almost palpable and the judges have been stingy with their scores. Hopefully their hate-hate relationship with her pro partner Maks isn’t a factor.
Green Bay Packer wide receiver Donald Driver whipped the audience into a frenzy for the second week in a row. Judge Len Goodman apologized to the NFL athlete for scoring him too low last week, something he realized after reviewing his performance tape after the premiere.
Jaleel White had a brilliant first week performance but missed the mark with the judges last night. Can he get his groove back?
So who will get the boot tonight? Martina will probably draw the short straw … and rightly so.
