After watching Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke on "Dancing with the Stars" last night, all I can say is
... daaaammmmmnnnnn.Their "Fever" fox trot was scorching ... and that "Sexual Healing" rhumba ... even with the weird moonwalk move at the beginning ... the man can dance ... He's the perfect match for Burke. He's the first one that has an ego - and the guns - to match hers. They play off each other perfectly.
As for the rolling around on the floor at the end of the rhumba ... it neither necessary nor effective. The duet had done enough to raise the temperature in every living room in America without having that as the last visual.
The DWTS people are doing their best to manufacture a competition between Melissa, Lil' Kim and Marini, but I don't think America's buying it.
From the crowd's reaction, Marini will be the last man standing.
While Melissa is lovely and balletic, she seems completely disconnected from the music.
Lil' Kim can heat up the Latin numbers, but go beyond that and she's all bionic booty (her words, not mine) and no ballroom.
Marini can do it all. While I prefer to see him blazing in the Latin rhythms, he can also be quite the gentleman in a tux.
In case you missed it ....
Update: Who would have thought the cowboy would make it to the finals? Even though his scores were in the cellar, his fan base pulled him through. Two girls. Two guys. The finals will be interesting.
