DWTS Week 2: Dance Recap

The men and women compete head to head for the first time this season. Director Baz Lurhmann (“Moulin Rouge”) sits in as a guest judge for Len Goodman who is currently in England this week. With only 4 days to prepare their routines, how did the pairs do this week?

Mya and Aaron Carter currently sit on top of the leader board with a two-way tie for first with a score of 27. Donny Osmond comes in at third with a score 25 and another solid performance under his belt. Injuries are starting to plague the contestants and professionals as ABC tweeted the latest injury updates. Tom DeLay has a pre-stress fracture in his foot that caused him to almost drop his partner Cheryl Burke during their Tango performance. Lacey Schwimmer despite her muscle strain injury, her and her partner Mark Dacascos turned in a solid performance which the judges went on to say that he was showing signs of becoming a great ballroom dancer. Check out Schwimmer’s vlog on Radar Online for her injury status.

In my opinion I think Mya delivered the best performance of the night. It was spunky and fun and Bruno called her “Mya the magnificent”! Both Joanna Krupa and Kelly Osbourne had a few mistakes which knocked them a little lower in the leader board this week. Although I do believe they will be able to bounce back for next week, if they are still around. My predication on who is leaving tonight is between Kathy Ireland and Chuck Liddell. Ireland improved from last week but as Carrie Ann pointed out, Ireland needs to stand out more. No offense to Chuck Liddell but he is quite scary on the dance floor and his dancing looks awkward. Find out all the pairs’ scores below and visit ABC.com to watch performances from Week 2 of “Dancing with the Stars”.
