Dancing With The Stars JR Martinez

We’re down to the final five and it’s pretty obvious who’s going home tomorrow after tonight’s ‘instant choreography’ performances!

Things are finally heating up on the Dancing with the Stars dance floor! With only a few weeks left of the competition, all of the contestants really stepped up their game…except for one pair: Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus. Unfortunately, America’s favorite wardrobe-malfunctioning gas-ripping talking head struggled to impress the judges and got the worst scores for the second week in a row. Meanwhile, J.R. Martinez scored two perfect scores on both his rehearsed dance AND his instant dance. Is he our Mirror Ball Trophy winner?

Rob Kardashian: Maybe being a part of the most talked about family in America has put pressure on Rob to improve, because he just keeps getting better and better. Tonight his quickstep with Cheryl was entertaining and tight. I’m impressed! “Your best dance so far!” Len said. 9, 9, 9 = 27/30

Instant dance: Rob really broke out of his shell for the instant dance. I still can’t believe how much he’s improved since the first week! 8, 8, 8 = 24/30

Hope Solo: I’m going to be honest with you; Hope is probably my least favorite contestant left on Dancing with the Stars. However, she looked great tonight and her dance with Maks was upbeat and fun. She deserved the high scores she received… 9, 9, 9 = 27/30

Instant dance: 8, 9, 8 = 25/30

Ricki Lake: The genius who is Derek Hough always knows how to choreograph his contestants so they look amazing and tonight was no exception. Ricki glided across the floor effortlessly. I thought the waltz was beautiful. “Your movements are exquisite,” Carrie Ann Inaba said. 9, 9, 10 = 28/30

Instant dance: Ricki’s instant dance was fun, but a little sloppy. 8, 8, 8 = 24/30

Nancy Grace: I’m not sure why Nancy insists on fighting with her partner, Tristan. It’s not like she’s Miss Dancer Extraordinaire. I kind of feel bad for her because her video package before her dance made her look rude…which I doubt will help get her votes.  Even though her tango was good for her (“You brazing Jezebel! Bruno raved), Nancy didn’t cut the mustard compared to the others. 8, 8, 8 = 24/30

Instant dance: Yikes… 7, 6, 7 = 20/30

J.R. Martinez: J.R. Martinez should make room on his shelf…that Mirror Ball Trophy is just as good as his. His beautiful waltz to “What the World Needs Now” will go down in DWTS history. How J.R. has never danced before this show is beyond me.  10, 10, 10 = 30/30

Instant dance: “You’ve come out here with the most fantastic jive!” Len raved. 10, 10, 10 = 30/30
