Dancing With the Stars: Liveblog Edition  
OH MY GOD I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED FOR INSTANT DANCES. That is only sort of exaggerated. I loved this last season.

The star introduction is sort of interesting today! Because of OUTFITS. Chelsea is wearing a beautiful blue dress, but Chelsie with an ie is wearing some sort of ridiculous pleather red dress with her black bra showing and what. WHAT ARE YOU DOING, GURL. Kym is dressed in really boring beige with low-cut cleavage and her hair tied up in a boring bun. Karina has flat-ironed her hair and I seriously do not know what to do with a Karina with straight hair!

Chelsea awesomely tells Mark to NOT BE AN ASSHOLE. Oh God, it is FUCKING AMAZING. She tells him to stop demanding perfect scores and acting like a dick to the judges and it's just so incredible, I can't even. GO CHELSEA. I won't be sad anymore if you win. Mark finally FINALLY says he wants the main focus to be Chelsea. YOU GO GIRL. Their dance is a slow waltz where they make out at the beginning and a few other times. Chelsea's wearing shoes, but it doesn't look like it. Mark tries really really hard to not showboat and doesn't quite succeed, but it's vastly better than usual.

Len asks them to dance more and storytell less, but he liked it. Look, a Jonas brother in the audience! Bruno is like THANK YOU, THANK YOU for letting Chelsea dance. HAHA. Everyone wants Mark to stop being a dick. Carrie Ann makes another comment about how she's Team Chelsea and not Team Mark's Ego, and then tells Chelsea she "earned perfection." Backstage, Chelsea tells Brooke that she's not mad at Mark. Mark says his main focus is to let Chelsea shine. 10s from Bruno and Carrie Ann, 9 from Len.

There's a segment where the judges are really excited about the Instant Dance. Len says it's the toughest competition on television. Carrie Ann gives a shout out to how Kyle Massey was awesome last year. Bruno doesn't show up for this segment.

Chelsea and Mark's song is "Get Busy" by Sean Paul, which Chelsea knows and Mark doesn't. The "coming soon" montage is over the top - Ralph collapses and Karina calls a doctor, Chelsie pimps out Romeo at a club, Maks has his throwing-down-the-mic fit of the year, and Kym TELLS HINES TO PROPOSE TO HER AND EVEN HAS THE RING. Things Kym and I have in common: writing ridiculous Hines/Kym fanfiction.


Weird people are yelling outside my apartment. Next up: Hines and Kym! *hearts fly around my head*

Hines: "I'm surprised I'm proposing to Kym, because she forced the proposal on me. That's pretty much America." *dies* They watch Ralph's dance and Kym tells Hines to smile more. That fake ring is RIDICULOUS, and perfect for DWTS. The song is "This Will Be Everlasting Love,: and I'm way too squeeful to be critical, although Kym, your hair's too pretty to knot it up like that. The singers go all out - I didn't realize how hard a song this was. He puts the ring on her finger at the end and okay, let's be real, this was ridiculously cheesy. Tom awesomely tells them to spend their instant dance negotiation the prenup.

Bruno, Hines/Kym shipper to the stars. Kym's ecstatic that he recognizes the Fred Astaire movie reference she put in. Carrie Ann thinks Gene Kelly. Aww, Carrie Ann has such a crush on him. She loves the "Cheesy Hines." Len says his personality radiates and hopes the viewers love it. Len gets all giddy and then complains about his feet, but says he loves the cheese. DAMMIT. So close to a perfect score!

Ooooh, Adele and Michael Bolton will be on tomorrow. Please let them do a duet. Brooke legit asks "WHAT is this relationship, you two!?" and Hines says they have fun together and Kym distracts with her crazy ring. 9s from Carrie Ann and Len, 10 from Bruno. Their song is "Chantilly Lace" - Kym knows it, Hines has no clue. Hines says they have 30 minutes to learn the song which is so hard, and Kym corrects him: 20 minutes. HA. His face.


Instant Dance holding pen preview. They are seriously rehearsing in a U-Haul storage space? Chelsea and Mark are panicking, and Chelsea is wearing a neon green bra top. Wow.

Chelsie's horrible dress and Romeo are up. The backstage clips show Chelsie being so over Romeo's posturing. Man, they always saddle Chelsie with the attitude problems, don't they? Chelsie's stressed out, Romeo tells her to get over it, and she is like "TWENTY MILLION PEOPLE." Poor thing. Tango, to Britney's new "Hold It Against Me," which explains the trampy costume. JESUS. That pleather dress has a giant black lace bow on the back. Like, GIANT. I seriously can't even see them dance over the dress and the green laser beams on the stage. I think they do well? The singers are really struggling tonight. Chelsie ends in an amazing pose, I'll say that.

Carrie Ann loves his intensity. Len says he upped his game, and then says "Tom, I'm going to speak to you now." Weird. Bruno calls him a "real man." OH YAY. DANCE CENTER IS NEXT WEEK! I... um... really need to get a life. Backstage, I anxiously await Romeo's plug of the week, but this time all he does is speak well of Chelsie. Okay, you're not a jerk. I'll give you that. 9s across the board. Oh wait, I'll say he plugged Frosted Flakes by saying he feels "Grrrr... eat!" Chelsie is really excited to have choices of envelopes for the Instant Dance and Brooke has to hurry her up. They get the song "Tequila." Chelsie is excited. Tom says that he wants the real thing. I'm with you, Tom.


Ralph missed most of his rehearsals from an injury and is making some crazy eyeliner. In the package, Karina wants their Viennese Waltz to be dark. Ralph feels pain, and Karina insists he get an MRI. Karina says there's no way they can dance on Monday, but the doctor says it's treatable. There's really painful rehearsal footage of Ralph in a ton of pain and Karina trying not to cry. They only have 9 hours of rehearsal time and Karina says they're screwed. Awww, but so far it's really sweet, if really unsteady. He gets like ten thousand audience votes for just doing this for Karina (and for himself, I suppose). The eyeliner, though. I'm not giving him a pass on that one.

Len is kind and says he did great for someone with limited practice and pointed out "you only get polish with time," Bruno does some interpretive Twilight fanfic and gives him props, Carrie Ann says the spirit of Daniel La Russo lives on. Carrie Ann says they have to judge based on what they saw but encourages people at home to vote and save them. Tom realizes that it's "too weird" that Ralph has a leg injury at the climactic moment, and poor Ralph limps up the celebriquarium and gives props to Karina. Carrie Ann: 8, Len: 8, Bruno: 9. Karina is happy with the scores, and she should be. Ralph says "It can't end this way." Their instant dance music. They didn't prep their Instant Dance at all, so Karina says "It'll be truly an Instant Dance!"

Preview is Kirstie falling a lot and Kym and Hines freaking out about the Instant Dance.


I should point out that I feel a lot of sympathy for these people today - impending layoffs were announced at my work without names, so I also feel like I'm about to be kicked out of the adminny ballroom. VOTE LITTLE RED!

I can't even explain what Hines and Kym are wearing. Hines looks like the guy at my office who wears suits five sizes too big, and Kym is like a cross between a beer wench at a beer fest and, well, something from Lacey's closet. Kym says they hope to get the audience on their side, which is not a good sign.

Maks: "Move your ass. And by your ass I mean your feet." Maks gets mad at Kirstie's lack of precision and she gets frustrated and falls a lot and keeps going "I'm okay! I'm okay!" Maks tells her to stop dieting and that she needs to eat more. Maks, I basically forgive you for everything for this segment alone.

EEEE! Maks carries her down the stairs and their Argentine Tango is already amazing. The lifts are beautiful. This is like 7000 times better than the regular Tango. ATs always, please. Kirstie does really well and it's sexy and her footwork is great and everyone is going to love them. I'm calling it now: They're going to win the whole thing.

Bruno is beside himself. "Your body's shrinking, your talent is huge!" Carrie Ann felt like she was watching "real life unfolding" and she topped her cha-cha from week 1. Len says they captured the feeling of the AT and it was hot. Kirstie gets confused about whether she's coming or going.

Maks tells Brooke that Kirstie doesn't eat. Carrie Ann and Len: 9, Bruno: 10. They choose "Cobrastyle," which no one has heard of. Brooke says it doesn't even matter, Tom is like "What? It does to them!"

Chelsea & Mark: instant dance! In rehearsal, Chelsea is like "WHUT." And Kyle comes in with a ridiculous top hat to coach her. OH KYLE, KYLE, I LOVE YOU. Rumor has it he's doing a reality show with Bristol Palin and I might have to watch it because KYLEEE!


Backstage, Brooke points out that Chelsie's more stressed than Romeo. Romeo says "I keep telling her, just be like we're in the club."

Mark and Chelsea instant salsa, and it's unsurprisingly awesome. I mean, my standards for an awesome instant dance are also no one falls over or cries. Apparently there was a jumped cue and they had to start early. I'm sure it helps that Chelsea knew the song, though. Len liked it, Bruno loved it, Chelsea looks like she might cry (is it still awesome if she cries afterwards?). Carrie Ann says there was no connection to the music. Len looks like he's going to slap her.

Backstage, Chelsea says this was the first time she had to let Mark lead because they squabble. Yeah, I think the girl celebrities have an advantage that way in the Instant Dance. Carrie Ann: 8, Len & Bruno: 9.

In the backstage clip, Hines and Kym look terrified. I really hope there's no falling or crying!


Do they really just keep making Pirates of the Carribean movies? Apparently so!

Backstage Kirstie and Maks are glaring at each other and not dancing. Ralph and Karina are trying to figure out their routine from nothing, and Karina says "hopefully it will be over in an instant!"

Hines is stressed about the instant-ness of the Jive and this leads to a lot of swearing and falling. Kym says she's nervous and NOW I AM TOO. I needn't have worried. Adorable carries them through and it looks totally choreographed.

It made Bruno smile the whole way through, but all the kicks and flicks were flat-footed. Carrie Ann launches herself ACROSS THE TABLE to say that he did an AMAZING job. Len says he was unlucky to draw the Jive for the instant dance and he did a fantastic job. THEY ARE SO CUTE, YOU GUYS, I MIGHT DIE.

Backstage, Hines calls it a workout when Brooke asks if he was enjoying himself. Carrie Ann: 9, Len: 9, Bruno: 8. The crowd boos and Kym says "We love the crowd!" and that she had more fun than she thought she would. Tom points out that when the crowd boos Bruno, he loves it.

Dance Center preview! Oh god. I love this show.


Backstage, Kirstie makes some nonsensical reference to ice skating. I might be more worried about their instant dance than Ralph's.

In rehearsal, Romeo tells Chelsie he dances better than her. She takes him to a salsa club and makes him go ask an unsuspecting girl to dance with him on camera. Chelsie is impressed, Romeo is still trying to get in Chelsie's pants. Oh, poor Romeo. Instant Salsa! I LOVE IT! Chelsie is adorable and does an entirely ridiculous twirly flip thing. Romeo struggles a bit to keep up, but who cares, I just want Chelsie to have a good time. Too bad they're scoring Romeo.

Carrie Ann growls and clearly wanted it to work because it was casual like they were at a club, but it fell apart at the end. Len wants to know why Carrie Ann and Bruno are being nasty, haha. Len loves that they did it as a club dance. Carrie Ann and Bruno can't handle that Len has been bodysnatched. Bruno says Chelsie covered well, but the fluidity was lost. I like it when they give props to the pros, even though it's usually in the context of "that dance sucked." HAHAHA Romeo says he was celebrating and pimps his new movie. Romeo, sometimes I can't stand you, but never change. Carrie Ann and Bruno: 8, Len: 9. Everyone's getting the same scores.



Depressing Ralph and Karina non-rehearsal segment. Karina admits she's freaking out but tries to coach him well. Ralph says he can sell it as a performer as long as he doesn't have intense pain live.

AWW, I love them!! They baby-step through it and it's great! They're lucky and get a slow song and totally sell it! If Hines and Kym are my OTP this season, Ralph and Karina are my brother/sister OTP. I just want her to be invited to his family Christmas parties forever.

Len admires his perseverance but didn't love the cha-cha like I did. Bruno says there's no hip action, but they're all really trying to be nice. Carrie Ann finds something nice to say about how he hit all the beats. AND THE JUDGES GIVE THEM A STANDING O. I love these two, but I kind of hope they go home so he doesn't die.

Ralph thanks the crowd, judges, Karina, and says he can't even think about tomorrow, but he does say it's "supposedly" going to heal and wants the chance to do more. The judges all give 7s.

Maks pretends to pray backstage. I have a feeling the dance will fall apart and he and Kirstie will just make out until everyone votes them into next week. This isn't a bad strategy! That's my bet.


In rehearsal, Maks tells Kirstie to showcase her big hips. Maks throws his microphone down. Kirstie's strategy is "to survive."

Kirstie is such a performer. She can make anything interesting to watch, and it's pretty good. She leaves Maks hanging at the end in some kind of weird moment to run over to the judge's table. HAHA: Kirstie upstages Bruno by swearing on live TV, and everyone laughs. Tom says they've got someone on a button backstage who has to earn their money. Carrie Ann liked it, Len LOVED it because it was traditional and oily or something.

*break!* again! I'm not getting lazy, the segments are just getting really short.

Backstage, Kirstie loves the latin dances and the audience and enjoys herself. Maks is very proud of her. Seriously, is a pro ever going to answer Brooke with "Nah, I'm not that proud of my celebrity." Carrie Ann: 8, Len: 9, Bruno: 8. Aww, even Maks does the goofy twitter-hands that Kirstie always does.

Ultimately: So happy Ralph didn't die. Chelsie's pleather dress still astounds me, and no costume should ever be able to shock me on this show anymore. I'm disappointed that we didn't get to see Hines and Kym do a "real" Jive, but if they make it to the final, that might be their redemption dance. Also: in the final pass we see Hines examining Kym's ring - she's totally still wearing the fake rock in her St. Pauli Girl jive outfit. I really hope she wears it the rest of the season and then he replaces it with a real one in a few years because I am a crazy shipper but you already knew this. Chad Ochocinco bought Cheryl diamonds, dude, there's a dancing football player legacy to uphold.

Pooh: SN - yay (by flickaholic)mspooh on May 10th, 2011 12:34 pm (UTC)
CANNOT wait to see this episode. Thank god for Little Red and spoilers. Hee!

First: They get the song "Tequila." Chelsie is excited. Tom says that he wants the real thing. I'm with you, Tom. I'm actually surprised you did this sober. You rock. Makes me wish I watched TV in real time still, then we could have done this together... except I would have definitely been drinking.

Things Kym and I have in common: writing ridiculous Hines/Kym fanfiction.

L. M. F. A. O. Kym's so awesome.

Hines: "I'm surprised I'm proposing to Kym, because she forced the proposal on me. That's pretty much America."

I wish that's how it worked. I should make the Boy watch this to see how it's done. Then maybe he can also learn how to be cute from Hines, instead of just exasperating most of the time. lol No wonder I like shipping, so much more satisfying than real life -- I can make things work out in my head and in fic, unlike real people. lmao

Brooke legit asks "WHAT is this relationship, you two!?" and Hines says they have fun together and Kym distracts with her crazy ring.

I'm not sure how this plays on the actual show, but Kym misdirecting from the question by playing with her ring? In my head, that's pretty much CONFIRMATION. Haha. Rationalizing is fun. So's making shit up.

Not to take away from the Kym/Hines shipping, but... Maks tells her to stop dieting and that she needs to eat more. Maks, I basically forgive you for everything for this segment alone. ... Can I just say that I am really loving Maks a lot more this season than any other season.

Finally: Chelsea awesomely tells Mark to NOT BE AN ASSHOLE. OH THANK GOD someone finally did it. Except he's such a douche, he'll probably go back to being an asshole next week. Sigh.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 10th, 2011 03:46 pm (UTC)
I would definitely have been drinking, too!! The only reason I didn't is because I was too panicked from work dramz to eat dinner, so I would have done less keymashing and more passing out on the floor. And I'd LOVE to watch with you but TIMEZONES!! I'm not actually watching it liiiiiiiiiiiive.

Hines: "I'm surprised I'm proposing to Kym, because she forced the proposal on me. That's pretty much America."

The best part of this is Kym dying of laughter in the background. I saw a rehearsal interview with them last week where Kym didn't say what their foxtrot would be, but said she totally expected Hines to shoot her crazy idea down and was shocked that he was like "sure!" The PR woman in me wants to say that Kym thought of this to distract from the LAPD drama, but she must have had it choreographed before that, so I'll just say she's playing house and leave it at that. :)

I'm not sure how this plays on the actual show, but Kym misdirecting from the question by playing with her ring? In my head, that's pretty much CONFIRMATION.

Heee!! Sadly it didn't quite play as a confirmation... somewhere between they-are-so-giddy-they-have-no-clue-what-they're-doing and Hines saying they're Just Friends while Kym is like DAMMIT, THIS WILL MAKE PEOPLE VOTE FOR US, JUST GO WITH ME HERE. I'm okay with this! Not Dating is one of my personal fic kinks, so them not realizing that they're totally playing house works out fine. I also just love Brooke in this scene. I like to imagine her as the gossipy queen that no one will give a straight answer to and that the will-they-or-won't-they is driving her crazy.

I can't wait to find the post-performance red carpet interviews online, because while there's every chance that they will shoot down my fantasy that they're actually doing it, I think Kym will be punchy as heck and it'll be hilarious.

Can I just say that I am really loving Maks a lot more this season than any other season.

ME TOO!! You can see his usual frustrated crabbiness come out in this rehearsal segment, but he's still so much better. And I just love that he seems genuinely worried about Kirstie and likes her so much. He seemed so burnt out on this show after last season, so I'm so surprised to see him turn around like this. And so far no attitude to the judges!

OH THANK GOD someone finally did it. Except he's such a douche, he'll probably go back to being an asshole next week. Sigh.

Seriously, did he just become IMPOSSIBLE this season?? Like he was always a douche but it's just SO much more obvious?? Maybe without Derek there he's way too into being King Of The Ballroom or whatever. I like to think that Chelsea and the judges talked enough sense into him today to last through the rest of the season, but that's a tall order!
Pooh: Psych - rock on (by tinamishi)mspooh on May 10th, 2011 05:27 pm (UTC)
This time difference thing sucks. You're still watching it more live than I am, since I wait for shows to pop up on Hulu first. I think part of the reason is because I do get scared of getting too emotionally vested in people, and then when they lose (or get killed off, or whatever), it hurts so I'd rather be on a time delay where I can be spoiled first. Preparation is half the mental battle. Hee.

I believe I will try to do some catching up tonight. I need to enable your squee. Haha.
Little Red: glee - football/pompom otpmylittleredgirl on May 10th, 2011 06:26 pm (UTC)
This is the only thing I watch live. I used to watch it on hulu like I do everything else, but last year I started watching it live because a coworker from our Phoenix office was all "OMG OMG OMG" about Kurt Warner and I was like "OMG OMG OMG" about Anna, so we had to watch and vote a lot. I totally know what you mean about spoilers, though. I have to sit on my hands to not check the internet whenever I watch something - even for this I could be spoiled by the East Coast if I wanted to.

Pleeeeease enable my squeee! :) I really want to write more fanfic. IDEK. I just. They're so adorable. And I found their dances online this morning and rewatched their foxtrot and it's totally possible Hines is being evasive instead of denying the hooking up, so OPERATION SHIP THIS BITCH is still a go.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 10th, 2011 11:23 pm (UTC)
Oh, I have links for you with last night's dances! I should add the embed codes to the other post, but here you go:

Foxtrot! It's totally worth watching this twice to check out Bruno and Carrie Ann flipping out during the dance and then watching Karina laughing in the background while Brooke tries to get Hines and Kym to admit they're dating. Karina is totally the hookup-enabler on that show. Especially now that she's engaged (again), she has to live vicariously through pimping out everyone else to each other. FANON.

Jive! Kym, we need to have a little sit-down about your love of spray-tan and fake bangs, we really do. Every time the spray-tan on the show is super evident (which is... always) I think about Toddlers and Tiaras.
Pooh: SN - yay (by flickaholic)mspooh on May 11th, 2011 12:27 am (UTC)
Returning to the catching up!

Week 6 and Viennese Waltz. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH OMG CANNOT STOP LAUGHING. I'm glad I didn't completely skip through this entire episode. That music video with Bruno... HOLY LMFAO. Okay, back to the better stuff... The pillow dancing was beyond adorable. AND OMG THAT WAS AN ALMOST KISS! I swear I did not make that up... at least not a lot! And Bruno is totally shipping Kym/Hines HARD. "I saw you in love with Kym." WORD, SO DID WE.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2011 01:29 am (UTC)

And oh my god the video with Bruno, HAHAHAHAHAHA. I love that. I totally want to know how Tom manages to sneak surprises like this through the dress rehearsal. Well I suppose the judges probably don't have to sit there during the dress rehearsal so it's all a surprise.

I love the "I can kiss her!" to the pillow. HAHA. Someone asked Kym about the segment and she said Hines is cheating on her with the pillow, who he calls Rosa. What even is going on in this relationship. THE KISS THE KISS SERIOUSLY WHY WAS THERE NO KISS MAKE THIS HAPPEN FOR ME GUYS. I hope they're holding out til the finals. AMERICA WILL VOTE FOR YOU IF YOU KISS. MAKE OUT AT THE END OF YOUR REDEMPTION DANCE AND WE WILL ENSURE YOU DO NOT LOSE. Hahaha.

The results ep for that show (I think it's that one and not the next one?) has these overall boring segments where the judges do a play-by-play of a dance for each contestant and this is the one they do for Hines, and at the end, Len goes "KISS HER, HINES! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!" They all ship these two.

(I'm currently imagining a scenario where Brooke is literally the only person involved with Dancing With the Stars who doesn't know Hines and Kym are hitting it.)

I'm on gtalk if you want to livesqueee, by the way! sachi.elena at gmail dot com

My internet is acting up tonight... the streaming keeps buffering every few minutes no matter what I do, otherwise I'd be on to squee.

Week 7! Team dance! Yay! I love the team dances, except ohoh Hines made a boo boo... Oops. Still adorable! I think both teams were a bit... disjointed, though... that's probably from the awkward spacing... or maybe that's just cuz the team dances make me miss Derek a little.

The tango wasn't their best dance. I blame the music selection. But they sure looked SMOKING HOT together. Wish they got to do the Argentine Tango instead.

Yay, almost caught up. Just one week behind now!
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2011 03:43 am (UTC)
I love team dances!! :) And yeah, none of the other choreographers seem to have grasped the Derek Winning Trick, which was to just have everybody walk in a line down the length of the floor in sync. That always looks ridiculously great! They should've flown him in to choreograph these! I can dream, right?

I blame the fact that the Tango is kind of a stupid dance tough dance to love in general. I don't know. I didn't like it much when the Best In The World pros did it either, haha. ;) It's just too jerky for me. And WHY WHY WHY have we not gotten an AT from these two yet!? OH MY GOD OF HOTNESS. Now they HAVE to make it to the final so they can do that. Can you picture the lifts? And after getting cheated out of Teh Sex with their rumba, we deserve this.
Pooh: DWTS - Jenerek (by scoreonemore4me)mspooh on May 11th, 2011 12:22 pm (UTC)
GRRRR! I HATE THE IPHONE LJ APP! I totally responded to this last night while I was in bed, and it never showed up. Same with the response below. GRRRRR.

*deep breath*

As I said in my first attempt... Ever since they introduced the AT to the show, I don't know why they bother with any other tango. However, I always have a fondness for the Cheryl/Drew and later, the Jennifer/Derek tango to the Shut Up song.

If Kym/Hines did an AT, TVs across the country will melt in a puddle of goo -- no, wait, WE'D melt in a puddle of goo. I haven't felt gooed in a long time, so I am totally okay with that. HEE.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2011 04:05 pm (UTC)
Please please please just can we have that AT. CAN WE. CAN WE. ALL THE LIFTS AND THE SEXY AND THE MAKEOUTFACE and aaaa.

I want to write more fic but I am stuck in the 2nd person. I can't escape it. I feel like I should or else I am basically writing the same fic. But it has its nontraditional POV claws into me and IDEK.


Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2011 04:09 am (UTC)
GIRL. Watching results show now. The backstage clips are Kym telling him his butt looks cute and asking for a real ring if they win the mirrorball. I DON'T KNOW YET IF THEY'RE SAFE BUT YOU NEED TO BE KEPT INFORMED OF THESE MUCH MORE IMPORTANT MATTERS.

EDIT: SAFE! Also, Delta Goodrem, Michael Bolton and Adele singing is ridiculously worth watching/listening to. (Anna & Dmitry dance in one of the numbers, Louis & Cheryl in another, some people I don't know in the third but Adele is breathtaking live even over the TV and I have no clue how she does it SORCERY I THINK.)

I did a boo boo. I had to skip to the Cheesy Hines and watch their foxtrot before bed. HAD TO.

And O.M.F.G.

It was everything I hoped it would be, but BETTER. As hot as I think Kym and Hines are together, I think he pulls off the cheesy a lot better than he pulls off the smoldering. Blame that huge smile. That foxtrot was just -- JUST! I am obviously going to have to rewatch it like 10 or 20 times before I can come up with something coherent to say.

Just... oh god, I'm smiling just thinking about that dance.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2011 04:03 pm (UTC)
No boo-boo!! You were all caught up since you saw the tango! :-D

OH MY GOD RIGHT???? So cheesy and so epically perfect. And Kym is grinning for her life and it's just NO ONE NO ONE CAN TAKE THE PLACE OF YOUUUU. This week is the first time they look unhappy and stressed in rehearsals (and this is a total aside but I seriously do. not. get. how Kym can wear all those backless shirts to rehearsals without a bra) (and an aside to the aside: I am generating a theory that she's totally wearing these skimpy things in rehearsals for him because it's not like girlfriend doesn't own practical tracksuit things THIS IS MY THEORY) (and Hines please take her out for a steak or something because she looks too skinny this week and not smiley enough and a dinner date would make EVERYONE HAPPY).

Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2011 04:35 pm (UTC)
HAHAHA the outtake dancer's confessional on hulu: HEEEERE.

Hines: "I should just keep proposing to you. I should have proposed at the end of the Jive, too."
Kym: "Maybe if you gave me a real ring we'd get three 10s."

CAN I JUST. THESE TWO. *DIES* I was so hoping they'd get the encore so he could surprise her with actual jewelry. *laaa*
Pooh: SN - freaky cute (by frostedmagnolia)mspooh on May 11th, 2011 06:38 pm (UTC)
Oh geez, you're trying to kill me at work, aren't you?! Will watch right away when I get home. Those two. Oh man.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 11th, 2011 06:45 pm (UTC)

I got my mom shipping these two also, even though her computer is so lame that she can't actually watch streaming video even if she lets it load all the way first, so she has watched their dances mostly as a series of choppy still images on youtube. But now we have a fandom of three! ;) (I mean, unless you count Bruno and Len and Brooke and Lacey and whoever cuts together the backstage clips and let's just say Karina too - everyone on the show is totally shipping them.)
Pooh: gahh! (by raelala)mspooh on May 11th, 2011 11:01 pm (UTC)

Yeah, no other words.

I hope Kym gets her ring. I've tried the blatant and not so blatant asking before and it didn't work for me. But then again, I'm no Kym, and I definitely don't have a cutie like Hines.

ALSO WORTH YOUR TIME: Hines & Kym interview post-results show.

Poor Kym looks like she's going to either pass out or throw up when the interviewer keeps harping on about all the PRESSURE to choreograph a gajillion dances worthy of the semi-finals, but there's just stupid cuteness with Hines and Kym talking about how daring they are or aren't and just - WATCH. DO EET. The way he cracks up when she says she's not daring enough better mean he's planning something, haha.

I'm just not going to stop tonight!

Tony Dovolani interviews remaining DWTS contestants

Tony asks if they're dating and Kym gives him the are you seriously asking me this on camera Tony? look while Hines is like "I'm totally hitting this, give me props man." HA. And Hines' and Tony's reactions when Kym basically says she wants to be Arnold Schwartzeneger's dancing jumpoff. Man, I would watch a whole show of just the pros hanging out together, I think. Seriously. Dying after this video. And Chelsea and Mark are adorable in this too (yes, even Mark)!

I'm trying to take off the ship glasses to assess whether they're actually dating or not right now and I just can't do it. (My best guess is still that they're Not Dating and being ~professional~ and that they'll get to have lots of sex after the season ends. JUST A THEORY.)
