It's Motown Week on Dancing with the Stars! And what better way to celebrate than with a Motown Marathon? Who made a comeback? Find out below!
Get ready because here they come. And by "they," I mean Smokey Robinson, Martha Reeves and The Temptations. Pulling out all the stops, huh, show? Can we continue the mini concert and skip the dancing? Kidding! Maybe.
OK, camera fail. Unless Donald had a complete body transplant and is now a trumpeter instead of Donald. Speaking of the band, a backup singer is wearing pink pleather. I think my Rollberlbade Barbie wore that exact same outfit back in the day.
So tonight, everyone will do an individual dance and then the Motown Marathon. Motown girl Gladys kicks things off.
Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus: rumba
Gladys is pumped and calls her bro to show Tristan some Motown/Pip moves. They're dancing to The Temptations, who will perform "My Girl" live. Cool, right? Not as cool as Tristan's all-purple outfit. I'm pretty sure he's the only guy who can pull off the Barney look. Anyhow, this is a very sweet routine and Gladys has the stage presence, charisma and rhythm to sell it, but technique-wise, it's not all there. Plus, this is a rumba, and there is zero heat. We don't need Maria and Derek-like floor-writhing
