Last week, I wrote about the new season of Dancing With The Stars. It occurred to me that it would be fun to keep you updated about things. Again, in alphabetical order by first name, here are my impressions from last night, which saw all the dances shaped around theme songs from TV shows.
Amber Rose and Maks danced a waltz to the theme from Game of Thrones. Rose displayed a good work ethic between week one and week two, which is something I always appreciate when watching DWTS. She was not vulgar (which her history indicated she would be) and she showed unexpected grace and control, something difficult given how thunderous and un-waltz-like the Game of Thrones theme music is. I doubt she’ll get the boot tonight and expect her to last at least a few more weeks.
Calvin Johnson, Jr. and Lindsay danced a Foxtrot to the theme from Family Matters. Once again, Calvin (aka Megatron) left me absolutely charmed. He moves with surprising grace for such a huge man and, as was true last week, he is radiant. His happiness reaches out through the television and just grabs you. I don’t see him winning the trophy, but I certainly hope he sticks around a long time.
