Last night, four "Dancing With the Stars" contestants made into next week's finale, while one contestant said goodbye. This has been one of the most predictable seasons yet.
'Changing the Outcome'
The Wanted performed Tori Kelly's "Changing the Outcome." When Tom Bergeron asked them about the song choice, they explained that they hoped to inspire fans to join in the fight against childhood hunger.
While their intentions were in the right place, I couldn't help noticing the irony of the lyrics. So far, this has been such a predictable season on "Dancing." We have not had a single "shocking" elimination yet. Everyone has gone home in the expected order, to the point where it almost feels predetermined.
The Wanted certainly couldn't "change the outcome" of this results show.
Ready To Go Home
This week's eliminated contestants, Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson, seemed ready to go home. From their easy-going body language, it was quite obvious that he knew. When the bottom two couples proceeded down the walkway, Zendaya breathed nervously, but Ingo just kept smiling. He didn't even pretend to wait in suspense.
I really have to give this guy credit. He's a classy guy who gave his best every week and continued to improve. He was also continually respectful to his partner and to his opponents.
10-Year-Old 'Queen Bee'
The AT&T Spotlight performance featured Sophia Lucia, a 10-year-old who set the Guinness World Record for most consecutive pirouettes.
As a reward, she was given the opportunity to perform with Lindsay Arnold, Whitney Carson, Tyne Stecklein, and her favorite dancer, Chelsie Hightower. I had a good laugh seeing this young blonde dancer performing to "Queen Bee."
Sophia Lucia certainly looked like a little queen bee, accompanied by the three dancing pros.
Dancers Channel 'Titanic' While Avril Doesn't Want to Grow Up
Sharna Burgess and Gleb Savchenko performed in white, accompanied by singer Christina Grimmie, who performed Drake and Rihanna's "Take Care." With the white costumes, white satin sheets, and Santa Ana winds, this performance reminded me a bit of "Titanic."
Also performing tonight was Avril Lavigne who sang "Here's To Never Growing Up." Maybe Zendaya could consider dancing to that song. It would certainly send a message to the detractors who criticize her for being too young for this competition.
