Something a little different this week!
We’re definitely getting into the dancing spirit here at YH – specifically “Dancing With the Stars”! Even more specifically, “Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars”! Just this week, we posted two new videos featuring two of the top couples from this season of “DWTS”; first, returning champ Apolo Anton Ohno swung by the Studio with his partner Karina Smirnoff, and then we headed to the rehearsal space of the luscious Gilles Marini and his also luscious partner Peta Murgatroyd (seriously, that is just too much hotness for one room!).
I’ve been a fan of the show for the past few years now; I took ballet, tap, and jazz classes when I was little but stopped around 4th grade, and nowadays I’m lucky to be able to make it to my desk to the door without tripping over my own feet (the classes didn’t stick, is what I’m saying). Hence I am fascinated by people who CAN tear up a dancefloor like nobody’s business. To behold a truly beautiful dance performance is to really appreciate the human form and what it can do. So, this week, I’d like to feature some of the best Perfect Score performances from “DWTS” seasons past! There haven’t been any perfect scores this season YET, but it’s been very close! I can’t wait to see who will be the first to do it!
Stacy Keibler & Tony Dovolani: SAMBA ("Bootylicious") - Season 2
Emmitt Smith & Cheryl Burke: CHA CHA CHA ("Dance To The Music") - Season 3
Joey Lawrence & Edyta Sliwinska: RUMBA ("Eternal Flame") - Season 3
Sabrina Bryan & Mark Ballas: PASO DOBLE ("You Spin Me Round") - Season 5
Mel B & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: PASO DOBLE ("Free Your Mind") - Season 5
Evan Lysacek & Anna Trebunskaya: PASO DOBLE ("Bring Me To Life") - Season 10
Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough: FREESTYLE ("Do You Love Me") - Season 11
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: RUMBA ("Eyes on Fire") - Season 12
Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: TANGO (Psycho Theme): Season 13
(okay, this is a cheat... they got a 29 out of 30, so they didn't actually get a perfect score, but they shoulda!)
Gilles Marini & Peta Murgatroyd: BOLLYWOOD ("Jai Ho"): Season 15
(again, another cheat, but come on, they were only half a point off!)
