Glitz and glam from the Great White Way graced the dance floor on Broadway Show Tunes week; Week 6, just past the half way point in the Dancing With The Stars competition. With only seven couples left in the contest, everyone had to improve their performances. Fan voting can only take you so far and this is where the serious competitors will step up.
Rick Lake and Derek Hough produced their highest scores of the season with a 29. J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff matched the 29. Both couples danced a Quick Step.
The next closest couple was Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus, who danced a Foxtrot and pulled in 24 points.
Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer were at the bottom of the leader board with 19 points. Schwimmer told Bono in practice, "I can't carry you any more. You have to step up."
Right behind them with a score of 20 were Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Maks unleashed a bit on the judges when they criticized some of Hope's footwork. He was visibly upset and felt they were being too nit-picky.
Solo has been having a problem finding her "sexy" - she's just too athletic in her dancing and not feminine enough. Being close to Bono on the leader board could mean the end for her. Bono's lackluster dancing and weak scores have been overridden by fan voting every week. It almost seems like he could fall flat on his face and still make it through. (Bow to the power of Cher).
For the first time this season, all of the contestants did a "Group Dance". There was no scoring, but the judges had complimentary comments.
On Monday, October 24, 2011, for Week 6 on Dancing With The Stars, Ricki Lake returns to form and hits the top of the leader board. But J.R. Martinez was right there with her.
