Dancing With The Stars, Week 7 review

Last night was a fun evening, because the them was “Eras.” For the couple dances, each couple was assigned a decade, from the 1920s through the 1990s. Then, for the two team dances, the groups were designated as “past” and “future.” Although most of the dances were a little disappointing (a lot of people are kind of stalled), it was still a lovely show to watch.

Calvin Johnson, Jr. and Lindsay danced a delightful 1950s jive, which left me grinning from ear to ear (a very normal response when I watch Calvin dance). He owned the floor and fully deserved the high scores he got. I still don’t see him as the Mirror Ball winner, but I’m beginning to think he can take second or third place.

Jana Kramer and Gleb also did a 1970s disco style samba. It suffered from the same problem a lot of Gleb’s dances have, which is that he’s not a very good choreographer. He always goes for the obvious. Jana did a workmanlike job, but for reasons I can quite grasp, I just don’t warm to her as a dancer. I think that, had she been paired with someone like Derek or Val, she could have been a contender, but Gleb drags her down.
