Tom reminds us of all the craziness that happened last night, and announces that tonight, the first celebrity will be sent home while the rest perform again. And it's all happening LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!
Oh, some of the outfits tonight are already killing me. The celebs and their partners are lined up in elimination formation on the stage. Samantha's hair has a lot of secrets tonight. The first couple safe is -- no surprise -- Lance and Lacey. We get to see some rehearsal footage where Lacey teaches the moves by telling Lance to act like a gingerbread man or pretend he's a dog peeing on a hydrant. And while that sound dumb, I think that method would actually work with a lot of people who don't know the dance terminology, which can be intimidating. Lance says it works for him anyway. They begin their quickstep to the Cure of all things and something about it is just off for me. I don't know if it's not quick enough or what. The beginning is kind of like the tango where they aren't looking at each other. It's technically good, though. Maybe the judges can help me out. Len says he didn't like their posture or hold, and I agree with him. Bruno liked their freshness and timing, and thought they performed well. Carrie Ann was entertained, but she wasn't impressed. She also sort of tells Lacey she needs to step up her ballroom skills, but not in so many words. Good. I'm a purist when it comes to my television fake ballroom dancing. Backstage, Lance tries to say something about peeing like a dog, but he accidentally says peeing on a dog. Oops. Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 6, and Bruno 8. Tom cracks that Lance will soon be hearing from PETA after the dog mixup.
