7 October 16th, 2012 GH’s Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy Deliver Stunning Emotionally-Charged Performance on DWTS All-Stars!


If you caught last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars: All Stars it was one of the most challenging evenings for several of the performers and their dance partners who had to deliver routines chosen by their competition!

For General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy that meant they had to perform a contemporary dance as chosen last week by Cheryl Burke! Given the fact that Kelly and Val had the most difficult task of the night to pull off in front of the judges, the live audience, and the television viewing public, Kelly and Val wowed with their modern dance.  What was additionally noteworthy was that Monaco had broken her middle toe earlier,  and was suffering from a fever prior to hitting the dance floor!

However, with all that going against her Kelly and Val’s routine was emotional, electric, and sexy! The judges comments reflected major kudos to Kelly and Val; Len Goodman noted that Kelly has been the biggest revelation.  Guest judge Paula Abdul said their dance was beautiful.  Bruno noted that their dance was the hardest and Kelly  nailed it. Carrie Ann Inaba felt the routine was  stunning, and gave the only negative comment from the judges that when Kelly and Val danced side-by-side that some of the moves were above Kelly’s level of dancing skills.  However, Inaba also said that it was something that takes years of training.

After the show, ABC Soaps In Depth caught up with Monaco where she revealed she did not admit to Val she had broken her toe until the dress rehearsal citing  “I don’t want to hear, ‘Oh, that’s an excuse’.  I don’t want any excuse not to do well. I want to suck it up and do it.”

At the end of the night, Kelly and Val were in third place on the  leaderboard! Topping the judges scores for the night were: Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd and Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough!  At the bottom of the leaderboard was Kirstie Alley and Max Chermkovskiy! Who will go home tonight on the Results Show?  What did you think of Kelly and Val’s performance?  If you have not seen it, watch it after the jump!

    I’m smelling a romantic chemistry. I don’t care that Kelly’s boyfriend was sitting in the audience. Kelly and Val are hot together!


    Sky replied

    agreed… they are hot, hot, hot together & their chemistry is on fire & so palpable you can feel it coming off the tv in waves. i wouldn’t be surprised if after this competition they end up dating, and frankly i’m rooting for it. not only are they hot together but cute and fun-loving too.


    Silvy replied

    For the first time, her BF was not smiling at all. The “package” before the dance was very reveling.

    Kelly is smokin’ HOT! She’s been sex appealing it BIG time. I have been rootin’ for her…. especially, since, Drew, Helio, and Joey Fatone (sigh) are no longer contenders… and i thought all three were up there.

    Kelly is def. in the top three…. along… with… Gilles, and Sabrina!

    too much competition… and that’s what this year, finally is…

    so close…. is Emmitt and Shawn.

    Shawn & Derek are the best this season! I like the way Shawn is so mature for her age. She’s always professional, never overly emotional or hysterical. She’s a winner!

    Team Vally has been kicking some major butt! Theirs was my favorite dance of the night, it was so stunning and emotional, just as Michael Fairman’s headline reads. I really want them to be the ones holding the mirror ball at the end.
