Dancing with the Stars: Week 6



So there was another shock in the ballroom last night as no couple was eliminated due to a technical glitch last week in which incorrect voting numbers were displayed. I thought for sure comedian Bill Engvall's number was finally up - but, no, he and his partner Emma were spared at the last second to dance another day. I also think it was very cruel for the show to make all the couples go through a fake elimination ceremony since the producers already knew that no one was being sent home. I guess anything goes to keep people watching - even if it's mean and pointless. The couples also competed this week in a switch-up challenge, in which they had to dance to four different songs in a minute or so, and these extra 1 to 4 points (based on when they were eliminated from the challenge) improved their final scores.

Now here are my Week 6 rankings of the remaining stars and their dancing partners in order of preference as well as a prediction of who will be eliminated next week:

1 (Last Week #1) Elizabeth Berkley & Valentin Chmerkovskiy (Score: 30+2=32)
This week two couples tied for first place on my list, and Elizabeth and Val's sharp and sexy cha-cha-cha deservedly received the first perfect score of the season. I also found it interesting to hear her discuss how Showgirls hurt her career.

1 (LW #2) Amber Riley & Derek Hough (Score: 28+4=32)
Their fun samba only got an 8 from the delusional Len Goodman, but I loved it.

2 (LW #6) Brant Daugherty & Peta Murgatroyd (Score: 28+3=31)
After being underwhelmed last week by their contemporary dance, I was pleased to see these two kids bounce back with an intense and aggressive tango.

3 (LW #3) Leah Remini & Tony Dovolani (Score: 27+1=28)
The judges liked their quickstep - and so did I. And I wonder how she became best friends with Jennifer Lopez.

4 (LW #8) Bill Engvall & Emma Slater (Score: 23+1=24)
Although he is not a sharp dancer, I found their cheeseburger tango in paradise entertaining.

5 (LW #7) Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi & Sasha Farber (Score: 27+3=30)
Their foxtrot was kind of dull - but he does look cute in a sweater.

6 (LW #5) Jack Osbourne & Cheryl Burke (Score: 25+2=27)
Bruno thought their paso doble was "a good effort", while the deranged Len Goodman gave them a 9. It didn't do much for me.

7 (LW #4) Corbin Bleu & Karina Smirnoff (Score: 23+4=27)
The judges didn't adore Corbin this week, rewarding his Game of Thrones-inspired Viennese waltz with a low score of 23. It was his worst dance of the season, but at least he won his Switch-Up Challenge. And I didn't mind seeing him shirtless during rehearsal.

Who Should and Will Be Eliminated Next Week: Once again I'm predicting that Bill Engvall, who received this week's lowest score, will be going home.
