Okay, so it’s 8:43 and at this moment, it’s official: Mya and her partner Dmitri Chaplin and Donny Osmond and his partner Kym Johnson have made it to the finals in “Dancing with the Stars.” One couple is still awaiting their fate.
What a horrible results show this has been.
Let’s call it what it was—- a musical variety hour with a little bit of “Dancing” thrown in here and there. In fact, I can’t remember a more ridiculous results show in the history of the show. Don’t get me wrong, it was amazing to see Alicia Keys, and Leona Lewis perform, preceded by a scene from the upcoming film “Nine” and followed by a performance by the remaining Bee Gees —- Barry and Robin — turning in a fine rendition of “You Should Be Dancing.” (Sadness at the loss of Maurice was obvious.) And did I mention that there was something about figuring out who’s going to the “DWTS” finals peppered in?
How ridiculous it was to parade the four remaining couples out onto the dance floor REPEATEDLY and then cut away to a commercial or to another musical guest before any finalists were revealed? Make that annoying. And cruel.
And then there were two…. and again, ABC had to take care of business, leaving Joanna Krupa and partner Derek Hough, and Kelly Osbourne and partner Louis Van Amstel dangling in the wind, so we could be treated to 6 minutes (or thereabouts) of commercials.
