It was Fabian Dance night, I mean women dancing last night on Dancing with the Stars (whispering-This means Fabian cause he is dancing with Marlee tonight. Did you hear me screaming and whistling.?)
1.First dancer of the night was Shannon Elizabeth with partner Derek Hough- She looked great. The dance was good but it didn't seem to match up with the music, which complicated it for me. It lacked a flow. If the song had matched I might've gotten it better but for me it seemed distracting somehow. 7-7-7 Len gives Shannon & Derek 7 points, Carrie Ann gives 7 points, and Bruno gives 7 points. 21 points out of 30
2. Monica Seles and Johnathon Robert- Bless Monica. She appeared to be very stiff and unnatural. She looked like a deer in headlights quite honestly. Not to say I wouldn't either. Len gave a 5, Carrie Ann gave a 5, and Bruno gave a 5 for 15 points out of 30.
3.Marissa Jaret Winokur with partner Tony Dovolani-She had the precious factor hands down. Cute as can be. She has charisma to spare.I loved it. I thought she did a great job but I also agree with the judges for Tony to give her more. She can do it. Big Daddy put in his 2 cents by saying he thought she was funny. He liked her, but he was really envious of Tony's shirt. Seriously, he would wear that to work and to Publix and all about town if he had one. No, I am NOT kidding. With chest hair proudly waving hello to the world. Yes he would. I am searching for a picture to add.....
Carrie Ann gave a 6, Bruno gave a 6, and Len gave a 6 for 18 out of 30. Respectable score! 6-6-6
4.Priscilla Presley with partner Louis Van Amstel- Have mercy. OK. Lets focus on the dance, because that is what it is really about...she was smooth and graceful I will give her that and stop there because it was about the dancing nothing else. (not even the exorbitant amount of plastic surgery. Why? Such a beauty, Why would she do that? Sad .)Carrie Ann gave an 8, Bruno gave an 8, and Len gave an 8, for a total of 24 out of 30.
5. Kristie Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas (a Harry Hamlin look alike)- WOW factor. She was graceful and smooth. She had terrific hand and arm extensions. She and Mark looked like they have been dancing for years together. 9-9-9
6. Marlee Matlin and her most fabulously fierce partner the highly acclaimed, Mambo King himself ......Fabian Sanchez (oh!? have you heard of him? OK, I know. I'll stop. But, have I mentioned how happy I am for him? OK, really... I will try and stop)-
OK, think I am prejudice? Perhaps a wee bit so, but I think I am actually watching them even more like a hawk. In any case,here it is: I was amazed. An amazing performance by both Marlee and Fabian. They did the cha-cha-cha. Marlee looked beautiful. Fabian looked like a young buck in the prime of his youth (dipping into the fountain of youth. Will note to ask him where it is at) They had a nice chemistry on the floor and they were working the crowd - everyone was on their feet clapping. They were dead on in their steps (or appeared to be with my uneducated dance world mind). I didn't see any missteps. Amazing. Fluid, funky dance number that Fabian put together. Both of them acted out their performance with facial expressions to a T. WELL DONE!!!!!! The judges loved Marlee. Carrie Ann said, they're "judging just what they see on the floor, which is fair". Carrie Ann gave Marlee and Fabian a 7, Len gave them a 7 as well, and Bruno busts out from the pack and gives them an 8. I think they deserved an 8 too. Marlee and Fabian raked in 22 points out of 30, putting them in 3rd place behind Priscilla and Kristi. Nicely done.7-7-8
I hope that you all either phoned in your vote or used your computer to vote online. I did both. You get 5 votes per method of voting at a time. But call on your home phone, cell phone, computer, friends phone, etc. and the numbers add up You get the drift. Just vote and I do so hope you will vote for Fabian and Marlee.
