Take a Good Look at Smokey's Face – Wait, Don't.

I just wanted to point out that Desperate Housewives is still a show that is on the air. That is all.

After a quick chat with Berry Gordy, Tom introduces Maria and Derek. This week, they have the foxtrot, and Derek wants to make it classy and not sexy. While they rehearse, Maria gets frustrated with herself and Derek gets frustrated with her, but she explains that she loves a challenge. They will be dancing to Martha Reeves singing, "Jimmy Mack." I hope they sent a PA to tuck Martha back into her dress. I'm distracted from the routine because Martha cannot sing this song anymore. I don't know if it's a bit too high or what. I'm also distracted by this sixty-something lady in the audience who is totally moving and grooving and singing along to the song. Love her. Anyway, the routine is really cute, although Maria gets a little out-of-sync during an interlude where they jump up and down the steps. I honestly think Martha's terrible singing is messing them up. But most of it is good. Not great, but good.

Judges? Bruno says it was gleaming and elegant, and she did lose her footing, but she caught up well. Carrie Ann loved her precision, but she got a little off for the second half of the dance. Len thought it was correct and formal in hold and fun and free out of hold. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 9, and Bruno 9. They are thrilled to have such great scores when Maria slipped on her dress on the stairs.

Roshon and Chelsie are up next. He was happy with his scores last week, but he wants to do even better. They have the rumba this week, and Chelsie tries to explain to Roshon what sensual is. Okay, he's 21 years old and he's a TV star. Surely he has some experience in that arena? I know he looks about 14, but seriously. Anyway, they are dancing to Smokey singing, "Cruisin'." Sadly, I know the Huey Lewis/Gwyneth Paltrow version of this song better. I know. Anyway, Roshon really surprises me with his ability to sex it up, but I still have the same problems with him that I always do - he's a little too out of control and has too much extension instead of precise placements of his hands and feet. It just looks messy. Sexy, but messy.

Judges? Carrie Ann thought his movements were over-exaggerated, and there was a lift (which Chelsie argues). Len thought the movements were clipped and jerky and didn't flow. Chelsie tries to argue that too but Len yells at her. Bruno thought he made up in fire what he lacks in size. Bruno demonstrates how Roshon needs to stop snapping his hips and instead let them flow. He basically said the same thing as the other judges but the visual demonstration actually seemed helpful to Roshon. And they're right. Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 8, and Bruno 8. That's more than fair.
