Classical Night Brings the First Perfect Score of the Season!
It’s Classical Night on “Dancing With the Stars” and this is the very week last year where we were first introduced to Katherine Jenkins. Now, instead of just being a guest performer, she’s a contestant.
The show opened with a stunning performance by a world class violinist Joshua Bell. It was just amazing, and the Dance Troupe did an amazing job dancing to it. This genre of music is a lot harder to dance to because there’s no distinctive beat; you just have to go by the count in the music.
Up first with a Rumba, is Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas dancing to Cannon in D. This is going to be interesting, it’s a sensuous dance that you normally wouldn’t think of doing to classical music. Right off the bat, I think they took a little too long to get into the dance by Mark making a huge production of him taking off his shirt. Len probably won’t like that. However, it was really full of grace and beautiful lines from Katherine. It was a slower Rumba, but it did have a lot of complicated holds, so we’ll see what the judges think about that. The crowd sure loved it! Len appreciated that they kept it elegant and he liked that Katherine stayed on time. He did mention him taking his top off! I knew it! Bruno said that she was the embodiment of the power of beauty. Bruno said that he would have liked to see the dance a little raunchier, but technically thought it was superb. Carrie Ann said that she is unmatched in the competition.
Their Scores: Carrie Ann – 9, Len – 9, and Bruno – 9, for a total of 27 out of 30.
