The power of the soap fans and fan bases are key to the success and failure of this year’s highly competitive season of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars and it was certainly made clearer last night on the Results Show!
In a nail-biter of a moment, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy were standing along side Kirstie Alley and Val’s older brother, Maxim, with one couple going home … and that couple was revealed to be Kirstie and Maxs, meaning that Kelly and Val have made into the semi-finals next week!
Now the fact that last night featured a double elimination made almost every couple vulnerable, but when came time to the second results of the night, that had Apolo Anton Ohno and Kirina Smirnoff standing alongside Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd with one couple being booted off. As it turned out, the results had one of the heavy favorites having danced his last dance as Marini was voted out! Of note real-life couple Maxim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd both ended their side of the competition when their stars were given the heave-ho.
That leaves five couples in the competition for the semi-final round which is going to feature another round of oddball dance routines. One again each couple, chose next week’s dance combo for one another. And here is what we will be watching the remaining duos perform: Melissa and Tony: “Caveman” Hustle, Shawn and Derek: “Knight Rider” Banghra, Apolo and Karina: “Big Top” Jazz Emmitt and Cheryl: “Espionage” Lindy Hop and Kelly and Val: “Surfer” Flamenco.
Ok soapers, did the right couples go home last night? Will you be there in force next week and keep Kelly Monaco and Val in the running in a very critical week of competition? Let us know!
