Quarter Finals/Trios Challenge Results
Original Air Date May 7, 2013
Colleen – TwoCents Reviewer
Tonight is the results from last night’s Quarter Finals. Tonight we find out who will go on to the Semi-Finals. Who will go home tonight? We are about to find that out!
As usual, we start the night off with the Dancing The Stars Dance Troupe and the professionals. I love watching this. These dancers work their butts off all week, but they make it look so easy, don’t you agree?
What I love most about the results show (other than the entertainment) is looking back at what happened the previous night. It is a real reminder of what we saw, what we liked and what we hated.
This week’s encore dance was done by Zendaya & Val (with Gleb). This is who the judges get to pick each week to do their favorite dance of the week. I have to say that even though it seems that Zendaya & Val get picked just about every week that I never tire of watching them. Zendaya has such talent, and I am sure her being on “Shake It Up” on the Disney Channel has something to do with it – she has what it takes to take up a challenge and has the background to make her a better dancer, too. I am trying to remember back to last season when her cast mate was on and I do not think he made it as far as her. I hope she can go all the way and win it.
Tonight’s musical performance comes from Jason DeRulo. I have never heard of him before, but his sound is almost that of Usher. I even thought for a moment that I was listening to Usher. He was very good and I will have to look further into his music. Check him out if you know nothing about him. You won’t be sorry!
This was the first time that the viewers on Twitter got to pick a new style of dance that has never been done on the show before (and will be danced on Monday’s show – so they will have time to prepare). Will these be the new dances of next season? We will have to wait and see on that, but here are the results of the Twitter vote:
Kelly & Derek – Flamenco
Ingo & Kym – Charleston
Zendaya & Val – Hip Hop
Sean & Peta – Disco
Aly & Mark – Afro Jazz
Jacoby & Karina – Lindy Hop
Are there any surprises? I know that Aly wanted Afro Jazz and Zendaya, well that is the style of dance she does on “Shake It Up” so I know I am rooting for Zendaya on that one. Of course, we all know that this is the results show, so one of the couples will not be dancing their dance that the voters of Twitter wanted for them.
If you are a regular watcher of Dancing With The Stars, you know about Ingo’s son, Peanut. He is in the ballroom every single show and the cast loves him. They showed a day in the life while he is at the ballroom. It was really cute. Peanut does make it well worth it.
The Macy’s Stars of Dance is next with Derek & Jaime. Earlier tonight, Derek showed us a rotating room that will be used for the dance. It reminded me of the Janet & Michael Jackson video for “Scream.” I have to say I loved it, because it takes a lot of work to make it look space-like and gravity defying talent for this to happen. What do you think of a room like this that makes it look like they are in space?
Tonight’s other musical performer is Emeli Sande. I think she is a wonderful singer. However, I do not know how she has sold more “records” than the Beatles. She is good, I will admit that. But is she better than the Beatles? You really cannot say that because she is a single singer and the Beatles were a group. There is no comparison in my mind. What do you think of this?
To recap from last night:
Leader board – First – Zendaya & Val (58), Aly & Mark (56); Third – Derek & Kelly (55); Fourth – Jacoby & Karina (52); Fifth – Ingo & Kym (48); Sixth – Sean & Peta (42)
Ingo & Kym; Zendaya & Val; Aly & Mark
Kellie & Derek; Jacoby & Karina; Sean & Peta
Jacoby & Karina; Sean & Peta
Sean & Peta
I have to say that I was not surprised when Sean & Peta’s names were called, saying that they were going home tonight (and we don’t need to see him attempt Disco next Monday, either). Sean should have been eliminated long ago. He had his weeks where he did well, but overall, I was not hopeful. I am surprised he lasted this long.
What did you think of tonight’s entertainment? What do you think about Sean & Peta going home? Did you see it coming? Are there any other thoughts?
Time for your TwoCents!
