Rihanna Blasts CBS For Pulling Her Thursday Night Football Song In Wake Of Ray Rice Story

'Dancing With The Stars': Week 3

Marlee MatlinWe're down to the final 10. Buckle up, we've got an hour and a half of this!

Marlee and Fabian - Jive
She has a Hallmark movie on CBS in a few weeks, and I bet she plays a deaf woman. Marlee looks extra hot tonight, though, and the dancing is fantastic. She is in league with Kristy as one of the best dancers on the show. I'm predicting she'll be in the final three. Len says she never ceases to amaze him, Bruno is not as enthusiastic, and Carrie Ann is starting to get nitpicky, telling Marlee to be careful with her hands.

My Score- 8

Carrie Ann- 7
Len- 7
Bruno- 7
Total of 21



Steve and Anna - Tango
Anna is sick during rehearsals so she makes Steve wear a mask, but then Jonathan comes in to help with a man-on-man tango, but it is only kinda creepy. Steve looked a bit stiff during the dance, but he was quite serious. He sure is killing time by getting goggles and a hemet in preparing for the judges. Carrie Ann says it was his best dance so far, Len says the actor came out this time, and Bruno says he's manly.

My Score- 6

Carrie Ann- 7
Len- 7
Bruno- 7
Total of 21

Cristian and Cheryl - Jive
Cristian gets a little mouthy with Cheryl, who in turn got a little mouthy with...never mind. They go to Sea World; I went to my refrigerator and got a soda. The song they're dancing to sounds like a bad 80's theme song, but Cristian has improved big time. He has really loosened up, which can mean safety from elimination. Bruno says he's on rocket fuel, Len says it's his best dance so far, Carrie Ann was in the middle.

My Score- 7

Carrie Ann- 8
Len- 8
Bruno- 9
Total of 25

Mario and Karina - Tango
Our high scoring man's puff piece has them dancing everywhere they travel to, and they even have a lover's quarrel. I thought Karina was with Mario Lopez though. The show should be called "Dancing with the Home Wreckers." They band is butchering "Roxanne." It is really distracting, and this has to be the worst song I've ever heard. Mario and Karina are trying to dance through the noise, but honestly it reminded me of a bad Moulin Rouge parody. Len says Mario disappointed him, Carrie Ann agreed, Bruno says he could do better.

My Score- 6

Carrie Ann- 7
Len- 6
Bruno- 8
Total of 21



Shannon and Derek - Jive
Shannon and Derek go kickboxing. I wonder where the producers come up with this stuff? Shannon uses her long legs to mesmerize the audience. I'm noticing a lot of these dances involve passing under each other's legs, which is kind of hot. She does a great job. Bruno gives her helpful tips but loves Shannon, Len is nice to her because he's the best judge ever, and Carrie Ann says she s fun to watch.

My Score- 9

Carrie Ann- 8
Len- 8
Bruno- 8
Total of 24

Adam and Julianne - Tango
Adam and Julianne have the funniest fluff piece by far, but Julianne is wearing a wig for the dance, which is distracting. Good or bad, Adam actually looks like he's having fun and does really well this time. Carrie Ann hates Adam in general, but says he was sexy, Bruno admits that he's getting better, and Len says Julianne makes Adam look like a dancer.

My Score- 7

Carrie Ann- 7
Len- 7
Bruno- 7

Marissa and Tony - Jive
There's lots of laughing, and Marissa admits Tony can't tell a joke and gives us the gem "how bad do you have to be to be the bad boy of ballroom." I love her. They're dancing to that Avril Lavigne song about girlfriends. The dance suits her because it does have a Broadway feel to it. Len says it was careful yet good, Carrie Ann calls it boring, Bruno says she can do better. Well this should make Marissa cry.

My Score- 7

Carrie Ann- 6
Len- 7
Bruno- 6
Total of 19

Priscilla and Louis - Tango
Priscilla says she had to tap into her experience as an actress, you know, the two movies she was in. She can do a serious look, I wonder why, and she's dancing well. I don't know, it just didn't do it for me. Bruno refers to her as a cougar, Len says it was great, Carrie Ann was mesmerized.

My Score- 7

Carrie Ann- 8
Len- 9
Bruno- 9
Total of 26



Jason Taylor and Edyta - Jive
Jason says the jive is tough, and Edyta is a stern yet loving teacher. Nothing really happens in their piece. Once again he is doing well and looks to still be a favorite to win. Carrie Ann says he makes her breathless, Bruno calls him restrained and powerful, Len said there wasn't any jive action.

My Score- 8

Carrie Ann- 8
Len- 7
Bruno- 8
Total of 23

Kristi and Mark
Mark is about passion and hate and takes Kristi to a performance coach. Kristi feigns modesty that rivals Shannon's. I'm sure she will be amazing because she's always amazing. Mark keeps opening his mouth while they're dancing, and Kristi is trying so hard not to smile. Len loves it, Carrie Ann says her technique is amazing but her character was a bit one dimensional, Bruno calls her sharp and clean, but wants her to be a dirty girl.

My Score- 9

Carrie Ann- 9
Len- 9
Bruno- 9
