"DWTS:" Pierre's Picks

Front 'o the pack? (ABC)

As faithful readers know, I've had the chance to rely this season on one of the world's great dance teachers - Pierre Dulaine - for my weekly analysis. PD's been on the road last two weeks, but he's back just in time for next week's finale, bless 'im.

 

(Also, please go here to find out more about Pierre and the fine work he does in New York City and environs...)

 

In any event, he gives last night to Melissa and Gilles; Ty is gone. Here's Pierre's wrap:

 

Melissa and Tony: Quickstep: Lively - energetic - good choreography; PD 10, Judges 9 - 10 - 9

Cha Cha: Not grounded enough here for real Latin feel; PD 9, Judges 9 - 9 - 9

 

 

Gilles and Cheryl: Waltz: Elegant - good partnering, stiff at times; PD 9, judges 10 - 10 - 10

Salsa: Excellently choreographed - very loose & relaxed; PD 10, Judges 10 - 10 1- 10

 

 

Shawn and Mark: Argentine Tango: Was not impressed - too rough, music from Take the Lead; PD 9, Judges 10 - 10 - 10

Jive : Was O.K....but looked 'heavy going,' was disappointed; PD 9, Judges 9 - 8 - 9

 

 

Ty and Chelsie: Viennese Waltz: Tried very. hard - awkward and not smooth enough; PD 8, Judges 8 - 9 - 8

Samba: Too physical - not relaxed - looked rushed; PD 8, Judges 8 - 7 - 8
