Helio had little to none hip action. The choreography covered that up really well so it didn’t show. He got 27 the highest of the night which was very undeserving in my opinion.
Mark Cuban was decent in his Mambo. I thought of the three men dancing Mambo his upper body action was at least the second best. And his footwork was pretty good too. They also said he put in more hours than anyone this week, and it showed. Yet he got the second worst score of the night. I’m not a fan of his but I just put in some votes for him, mostly because I don’t want to see him working so hard yet get boot on a pretty good performance. He has a problem with the fan base and on top of that, his constant singing while he was dancing did not help him look good. He did that probably because he was nervous while still trying to put on a performer’s face, but still.
Like last year’s Heather Mills, I think people who are neither athlete nor TV/music star are kind of in a disadvantageous position when it comes to fan voting. Other than having a smaller fan base, they don’t have the charisma of an actor/actress who’s comfortable with the camera, nor do they have the physical advantages of an athlete.
My predication is he won’t last long but he won’t go home tomorrow either because some sympathy votes (like mine) will likely go his way tonight.
Aside from those, I thought Sabrina really surprised me with her Quickstep, as in my previous post I didn’t think she would do as well in ballroom. Jennie did well too but the slip in the end kind of overshadowed the performance. When something like that happened you realize this was indeed live TV.
There were quite a few funny moments tonight and Drew Lachey did a good job again. But the one I remembered the most was the “I’m dancing Mambo!… I THINK” bit from Helio’s pre-dance clip. He’s a funny guy.
Also a very memorable line was from Edyta/Cameron’s clip where Edyta said to a frustrated Cameron, “I need you to believe whatever you’re doing and whatever you are is good enough… You are never going to be perfect“.
