This week marks the halfway point for season 11 of Dancing with the Stars!  It’s anyone’s game now, which is proven by how Bristol Palin keeps coming back week after week, even though she can never remember her dances.  This week was TV Theme Week where we had Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy quickstep their way onto the top of the leaderboard with a total judges score of 27, knocking Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough out of the coveted spot.

Bringing up the rear were Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas with a total judges score of 18.  Ouch.  I’m sure the monkey suits didn’t help matters any, even though Len Goodman surprisingly liked them.

It was acoustic week!  The contestants danced to either the Argentine Tango or the Rumba to live acoustic music.  They were also being judged on both technical and performance abilities, and had to dance on a much smaller, round stage.  Luckily no one fell off the stage, which I totally would have done.

Before I get on with the results, just a few observations from me:

1. We got to hear Jennifer Grey say, “It was dope, yo.”  That was priceless.

2. Watching Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas dance is kind of like watching my grandmother makes the moves on my boyfriend.  Solely speaking of the age difference.  I don’t want Corky Ballas to be my boyfriend.

3. We got to see Mark Ballas’s, Len Goodman’s, and The Situation’s situations.  The Situation’s was the only one worth looking at.

It just seems so...unLenlike

4. Karina Smirnoff thinks The Situation is The Hulk.  Or maybe Superman.  Karina, you aren’t Lacey Schwimmer.  You and The Situation are almost the same height and build.  Expecting him to make you do a perfect barrel roll in mid-air might be sort of impossible.

5. Speaking of Lacey Schwimmer, what’s with all the jokes about how young and “full of hormones” Kyle Massey is?  You were his age pretty damn recently, Lacey.

Okay, now that I got all that out of my system, onto the results!
