'DWTS' Recap: Maria Menounos Dances With A Broken Rib

Maria Derek Dancing with the Stars

After a phenomenal first week, the season 14 cast lost their spark with their second dance. What a bummer!

When season 14 premiered last week, I was positive this was the most talented (if least famous) group we’ve seen on Dancing with the Stars. However, after tonight, I might have to take that back! I don’t know what happened, but everyone seemed tired, lackluster and subpar compared to their performances last week.

Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower: Roshon is a born performer and judging from his nearly flawless quickstep to “Life Style of the Rich and Famous,” it’s obvious he has a natural knack for dancing. He might as well be a pro. 9, 8, 9 = 26

Sherri Shepherd & Val Chmerkovskiy: Sherri may not be totally refined, but she’s a kick in the pants to watch dance. She lights up the stage when she’s up there and I always smile just because it’s clear she’s having the time of her life. “You know how to work on that magnificent equipment,” Bruno Tonioli complimented. 8, 7, 8 = 23

Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: This dance was a snooze. I don’t care much for Melissa one way or the other, but I like to look at Maks, so I’d keep them around for awhile longer. “As the dance went on, you lost a bit of energy and your posture went away,” Len Goodman observed. 7, 6, 7 = 20

Jack Wagner and Anna Trebunskaya: Last week the judges were so impressed by Jack and I couldn’t see the charm, however, tonight I was entertained by his jive, even if it was a little messy. 7, 7, 7 = 21

Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus: Yet another boring dance! Gladys brought it last week, but seemed tired or something with her quickstep tonight. The only reason I’d keep them around is because Tristan is adorable. “Quickstep you’ve got to stay in the frame. I didn’t appreciate the dance 100% tonight and I apologize,” Len said. 7, 5, 7 = 19

Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas: How Katherine could ever be nervous about looking sexy is beyond me. She’s practically perfect in every way. That said, I think she got lucky to have Mark as her partner too. He always comes up with clever concepts for his dances, and their Vegas-themed jive was just that. I loved it! 9, 8, 9 = 26

Jaleel White and Kym Johnson: Jaleel seemed a bit lackluster tonight with his jive. It lacked enthusiasm, even if it was another cute idea for a dance. Carrie Ann thought he was “flat-footed.” I agreed. Sorry, Erkel. 7, 7, 8 = 22

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough: After a few boring dances, Maria and Derek’s performance was well-received. Even though they were totally out of sync for a bit in the middle, they still sparkled and had good energy (especially considering she was performing with a wounded rib!). “There was a ‘little’ incident. After last week this was an improvement,” Len said. 8, 8, 9 = 25

Martina Navratilova and Tony Dovolani: Aww. That was a bummer. Poor Martina! Her jive was awkward…really, really awkward. “That was sad cause I love your attitude and the joy,” Carrie Ann admitted. “It was slow on the jive.” That’s putting it lightly. 6, 5, 6 = 17

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd: Donald’s strength and great personality give him great control and charisma on stage. Out of all the dances in week two, I didn’t want his quickstep to be over. “Great lines. Refined and elegant,” Bruno praised. 8, 8, 8 = 24

Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff: Gavin is another awkward one up there on the dance floor, and when you put him in leather, it’s that much funnier. I can’t really take him seriously… “You did have some strange kicks, but you went for it,” Carrie Ann said. 7, 7, 7 = 21

William Levy and Cheryl Burke: Whew! Someone certainly knows how to turn up the heat in the ballroom (as Carrie Ann said)! Not only is William stunning to look at, he’s pretty freaking coordinated. It’s obvious why he was the one with whom producers wanted to end the show. His quickstep with Cheryl was fantastic. “Even fully clothed you have the ability to dazzle. Superb,” Bruno raved. 9, 7, 9 = 25

Bottom line: There’s no doubt in my mind Roshon, William and Katherine are safe. I’m nervous for Martina, especially since I like her personality and watching her on stage more than Gavin, Gladys or Jaleel.
