April 12, 2010

This week the teams will be dancing to either the Tango or the Rumba, the dance of love. Will this turn into a pay-per-view event, like Tom Bergeron illuded to last week, or will it be a "walk" in the park for others?

The twist this week is that each dance will be given two marks: one for technique and one for performance or entertainment value. It will surely be interesting because some teams may be helped by this scoring and others may fall far behind. Could the stress of this new scoring system bring on more fights (staged or otherwise)?

What a pleasant night of fights and lots of improvement. Chad, Kate and Pamela all showed great improvement this week and their scores reflected it.

Evan danced a stunning tango that landed him on top of the leader board, and Nicole seemed less than pleased that she was again second.

Talk about this episode of Dancing with the Stars
Even with the stress factor elevated by being marked on both technique and performance, the teams managed to avoid the pitfall of fighting. This made the show more enjoyable to watch.

Teams that had historically received low scores and bad reviews seemed to have break-throughs with improved scores.
