'Dancing With the Stars': Week 7 is liiiiiiive!

Posted on

Update: Annie’s recap is live. We’re back, DANCMSTRs, for Week 7 of Planet Mirrorballus madness. Tonight, the remaining six couples must dance TWICE. Let’s all cross our impossibly bejeweled fingers that Dopey Italiano‘s multifaceted eyes don’t pop out of his well-tanned noggin! As always, nominate your Hidden Gems in the comments.

If you missed it last week, listen to my post-results chat with Tom Bergeron. In this installment:

  • Mutant Bubble Machine vs. Deadly Smoke Machine: Who wins in a fight? Listen for my oddly delighted “Oooooh!” after Tom says the DSM “smells like Godzilla farted in there.”
  • A royal wedding connection! During his DJ days, Tom used to play “Muskrat Love” and the royals did NOT approve. 
  • Are Tom’s post-commercial-break kicks a nod to EW.com’s hidden gem hunters? “It wasn’t originally so, but it is certainly in the back of my mind now.” YES! “Ya gotta kick!”

Press the little “play” triangle above to hear my imaginary friend Tom in all his alternate-universe glory!
