Dancing with the Stars saw plenty of drama in episode 6. The competition certainly got tighter with three couples bringing in scores of 27 out of 30, as well as most of the others performing above levels they had in the past. The ending saw two couples on stage, one receiving a “save” vote each, leaving judge Bruno Tonioli to cast the vote to send someone home. That person to the disappointment of many was Vernon Davis, who had improved each week, thanks in part to the chemistry he had with partner Peta Murgatroyd. (Peta even somehow delivered a strong performance this week despite injuring her neck during last week’s show.)
As has become a running theme with DWTS, Twitter came right out of the gates with knives out for host Tyra Banks. Comments attacked Banks for what is perceived to be a stilted or disinterested line delivery, while others feel she treats her entrance at the beginning as a personal runway show. Really, though, she does a fine enough job. Maybe fans remain a little too loyal to departed host Tom Bergeron, because Tyra isn’t the train wreck Twitter users would have you believe.
Banks’ outfits are another matter. From the beyond-bizarre Minnie Mouse attire she wore during “Disney Night” to the ill-fitting, retro-space costume the following week, the clothes have been regrettable to say the least. Tonight was no exception. What Banks wore when she took the stage in episode six is difficult to put into words. It was reminiscent of when a cat plays under the Christmas tree and gets tangled up in gold, sparkly ribbons and discarded crimson wrapping paper. Fortunately, she changed outfits before Derek Hough’s performance to something less distracting. But, let us all remember, there is a wardrobe department and ostensibly someone who chooses the outfits for her.
Tyra and her opening wardrobe can be seen in the pic for the opening video below:
Speaking of Hough, he showed the amateur contestants how it was done with (unsurprisingly) the best dancing of the night with his girlfriend, and former Dancing with the Stars troupe dancer, Hayley Erbert. As impressive as their performance was–and it was very, very impressive–it made one wonder if it was necessary. (Definitely not necessary was the opening scripted sketch that saw Hough doing a mid-season interview about his new judging position. Great dancer? Yes, Derek is. Decent actor? Well…Just watch that embedded video above.)
More important were the contestants. Backstreet Boy AJ McLean scored three 9’s dancing a samba with Cheryl Burke, as did Monica Aldama of Netflix’s Cheer doing a rumba with Val Chmerkovskiy, and actress Justina Machado with Sasha Farber with a Viennese waltz. On the other end of the spectrum, Disney Channel star Skai Jackson and Alan Bersten scored three 6’s dancing a cha-cha to a Doja Cat song.
The fact that Skai wasn’t amongst the final two couples facing elimination had many on Twitter crying foul.
That left former NFL star Vernon Davis with partner Peta Murgatroyd and professional figure skater Johnny Weir with partner Britt Stewart as the two couples facing elimination. Carrie Ann Inaba (in her own strange ensemble) voted to save Davis while Derek chose Weir. Bruno was left the all-important final vote, and he chose to save Johnny and Britt. Vernon was an emotional favorite, as he danced with his heart on his sleeve and genuinely appeared to be getting better, but he had been too close to the bottom for too many weeks.
Next week the show returns with another theme–“Villains Night,” which will feature contestants performing as famous villains. After the elimination tonight, perhaps someone will consider dressing as Derek or Bruno.
