Recap: 'Dancing with the Stars' - Rock Week for the Top 7
So, it’s Rock Week at “DWTS,” and though part of me thinks this could be a fun theme, depending on what the show considers rock, I’m getting a little worried about all the cutesy bells and whistles the show has been trying out. All of these concepts seem to be taking us further and further away from the core of what makes the show successful – ballroom dancing and a heady mix of talented and spastic D-list celebrities. But perhaps I just need to see if maybe Bristol Palin can dance an Argentine tango to, say, Slipknot or an old Nirvana ditty first.
Audrina is a good dancer, in a wind-up doll kind of way. This paso doble is fine, but she’s just swapped her vacant smile for a total lack of expression this week, which I guess is the same as emitting white hot passion if you’re the nice girl on “The Hills.” It’s too bad, really, because Audrina has the ability to be a contender, at least from the neck down.
I wonder if Jennifer just flatly refused to do a campy segment, because we have to see another piece about the non-fight Derek and Jennifer had two weeks ago. And hear about Jennifer’s old neck injuries. Maybe those fake, canned segments aren’t so bad after all.
