Dancing With The Stars: Week 2

Surprise! Double Elimination! They shocked us right at the beginning of the show. Oh my, I was really worried that one of my favorites might be sent home, especially after they declared Billy Dee safe. Love his heart.

Drew & Cheryl danced a fun jive. Drew is definitely a crowd pleaser and improved from week one. Does anybody else think that Cheryl's face looks different this season? Just one of my odd observations! Scores: 7, 7, 7

Danica & Val did a samba. Poor Winnie Cooper was crying from the stress. I'm worried about her because this is just week two. It's only going to get harder, Winnie. She did a good job, but the dance was a little too suggestive for my taste. Scores: 8, 8, 8

Billy Dee & Emma danced a tango next. He seemed to be having some difficulty during rehearsals. When he said he wanted to cry, it made me sad. Then, he had his sunglasses on inside. Why? To hide the tears maybe? They brought in some extra girls to dance with him, and that seemed to lift his spirits. I do think he did a little better this week, but I agree with the judges that he needs a lot more content in his dances. Scores: 5, 5, 5

Meryl & Maks did a swing dance. Y'all, she is seriously precious. It was a great dance with lots of lifts. Maks disagreed with a couple of the judges' negative comments. That's nothing new, he never agrees when they aren't all positive. I think Meryl reminds me of Snow White from the original movie. So, if the ice skating thing doesn't work out, maybe she can work at Disney World! Scores: 8, 9, 8

Diana & Henry are eliminated. She handles it so graciously. They get to do their dance anyway, and she is a very good sport about it.

Candace & Mark are next with a rumba. Again, she makes a statement about being a Christian. She also said, "My life revolves around my relationship with Jesus Christ." DOUBLE FIST BUMP! I am just so, so proud of her. I may have even cried a little. Ha! Anyway, her dance was absolutely breathtaking. Then, the judges were so hard on her. They scored her WAY lower than they should have. I was so mad that I actually voted (I hardly ever actually vote). Scores: 7, 7, 7

Amy & Derek do a swing dance. Again, she is amazes me. How is it even possible what she does? Scores: 8, 8, 8

James & Peta are ready for their salsa dance. I still think he is a cutie patooty, but I think he was playing the sexy card way too much. Just my opinion. Score: 9, 8, 8

Charlie & Sharna danced a tango. Wow! It was very good! I think he definitely has an advantage (like Meryl) since they are professional ice skaters. However, it was great no matter what! Scores: 9, 7, 9

Nene & Tony did the jive. I thought she did better than last week. She also looked very pink from head to foot! Scores: 7, 7, 7

Sean & Karina went next with a salsa. He seemed to be trying hard and actually smiling! That's improvement. Scores: 7, 7, 7

Cody & Whitney danced the tango in some light up costumes. I did like their performance better than last week, but I'm still just not sure how I feel about the dancing overall. Scores: 7, 7, 8

Uh oh, Sean & Karina are sent home. That just goes to show that it helps to smile and not be a "bad boy". And it also helps when people know who you are before the show starts. I didn't have a single clue who he was before last week.

To sum in up, most people improved. I'm mad as a hornet about the scores the judges gave Candace. The End.

I missed last night and forgot to record it, so THANK YOU for the update! :)

I'm a Candace fan too...was really hoping to see her dance. I think they're probably going to be hard on her throughout the whole show but I'm so proud of her for standing firm!!!
