'Dancing With the Stars': Rated 'P' for Puh-leeeze
On last night’s Dancing With the Stars, we learned that Master P‘s dance partner Ashly Delgrosso believes in miracles. And you know what? So will I — but only if the lumbering rap mogul gets the boot on tonight’s results show. I mean, the only thing more galling than discovering P has put in just 20 hours of training since the show began (compared to an average 130 for his competitors) was hearing him boast ”Only God can judge me,” after Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba gave him a combined score of 8 (out of 30). C’mon now, P, even if you’ve got a point, not even the most benevolent deity would’ve called in a vote for your predictably half-hearted paso doble to ”Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.”
While there’s no arguing that P’s escape from elimination three weeks running has created watercooler buzz for DWTS, at what point will his grouchy-pants advance make viewers reach for their remotes? Timeslot rival CSI might be gory, after all, but if hard-trying hoofers like the campy delight Lisa Rinna (who danced to ”The Final Countdown”!) or the charming Jerry Rice lose out to a guy who clearly has no interest in shaking his groove thing, that’d be downright disgusting.
What did you think of last night’s show? And more importantly, do you think P’s reign will end tonight?
