'Dancing With the Stars': Nom nom nom your gems

Posted on

Five couples left! Tonight is “Era Night,” which should be similar to last season’s Dance Through the Decades. I don’t have complete details on everyone’s themed dances, but here’s what I do know: Erin and Maks will do rumba and Argentine tango, Evan and Anna will do cha cha and waltz, Nicole and Derek will do paso doble and jive, Chad and Cheryl will do tango and jive, and last but certainly not least (and I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly) Niecy and Louis van Intensité will do the Viennese waltz and a 1990s-themed paso doble set to “Rhythm is a Dancer.” I’m practically sequinning myself with excitement.

Meanwhile, Evan has prepared for tonight’s double-dance extravaganza by reenacting the photo at right. He’s been visualizing Niecy’s jiggly bits for six days now. They’ve hypnotized him into a cheeseburger-mongering trance and he’s gained 25 pounds. How will this affect his beautiful lines?!

Discuss the Week 8 performance show and nominate your Hidden Gems of the Week here, then come back tomorrow morning for my full recap and Crazy Costume Watch photo gallery!
