‘Dancing with the Stars’: Which Celebs Need to Up Their Game?

Yahoo Contributor Network

Last Monday, the celebs competing on Season 14 of "Dancing with the Stars" were given another week before the first elimination to strut their stuff. Though there weren't any Kate Gosselin-size train wrecks in the group, there are some stars that need to up their game if they want to remain in the ballroom for another week.

Martina Navratilova

The tennis great looked amazing in her ballroom attire, and while she did a perfectly respectable job dancing her Foxtrot with fan favorite Tony Dovolani, Navratilova seemed to be holding back. This week she has the Jive, which means the sports legend will have to show the same energy and fancy footwork she brought to the tennis court during her glory days if she wants to bring in the votes.

Gavin DeGraw

The singer admitted to being shy, which although slightly adorable, does not always make a lasting impression on the dance floor. This week he will need to bring more personality to his dance, which could happen if he would relax and loosen up a bit. Perhaps the "I Don't Want to Be" singer should follow Tom's suggestion and get personality lessons from talk show host Sherri Shepherd.

Melissa Gilbert

We have to hand to it to the TV Veteran. Maks gave her some tough choreography, which she delivered competently. That being said, she was still a little stiff in certain areas and looked a bit uncomfortable. We'll chalk it up to nerves, which if "The Little House on the Prairie" star gets in check can lead to a vast improvement on the dance floor.

Maria Menounos

Because she was picked as an early front-runner, the odds of the "Extra" co-host going home are pretty slim. However, the voting public is a very fickle one, and if the lovely Menounos delivers another slightly stiff performance, they could very well send her out the door. Which would be a shame, especially since her laugh is kind of cute once you get used to it.

Roshon Fegan

Roshon Fegan can dance; no question about it. However, the young star danced more hip-hop than cha cha, which is fine the first week, but as the competition progresses, people are going to want to see more actual content from the "Shake It Up" star. Hopefully he can begin to embrace the ballroom without feeling the need to fall back to hip-hop.

Who do you think needs to up their game?
