Dear Petra: I hate to see you go, but love to see you leave.

Here we go America!  The results are in, but let’s see what lead up to it…

I’m so glad that Romeo was picked to do the encore dance.  This time around he seemed much more relaxed and hit every move better than the night before.
The opening number sung by Tobey Keith was all American fun, but Maks is having a heck of a season with mishaps happening with both his star and professional Lacey.  Like I tell my students, “Keep on going!” The second song featured Jonathan and Anna from the Bay Area with a beautiful medley of different dances.
Now normally I don’t pay too much attention on the clips they show between who’s save or not, but Psycho Mike’s DWTS “EXPOSED” was freakin’ hilarious!!!  And since Maks caught my eye this week, his describtion of himself (sex on a stick) was to die for, I love these European men!
Macy’s Stars of Dance was really neat with all the different styles of dancing around a New York like stage. And I love that song!  Watch out, I see a new routine in the future.
So now the moment of truth!  And what did I tell you?  Petra is going home folks!  I honestly never saw what all the hoopla was about this girl.  I mean, she was just OK for me, but the praises she received from the judges were not justified to me.  Thank you America for making this her last week.
What do I see happening in the near future many of you ask?  Unless something magical happens with Kendra, that girl is out of here.  And dare I say if Ralph does not shape up, he’s in danger of losing his mirror ball dream.
My top picks? Of course my “dark horse” Chris Jericho is steady and moving right along to the finals.  The next spot is a toss up between Hines and Chelsea.  I think the combo of his personality and hard work will pay off in the end.  But I’ve seen the power of all things Disney and tweens supporting Chelsea.
Next week the stars will be dancing to songs they love in Guilty Pleasure week.  Now I am already looking forward to my own guilty pleasure with New Kids On the Block and Backstreet Boys on the show.  Yes, I will be screaming like a 15 year old teenager and reliving my NKOTB days (don’t judge me).  So Juan and Cari, I think I feel a cold coming on and have a feeling that I will be out sick Monday & Tuesday night.  Don’t worry, I will make a speedy recovery and be fine for the rest of the week. 😉
Until then…
