This post contains videos, predictions, and some surprising analysis of where things stand now on Dancing with the Stars. As mentioned earlier, the episode in week 8 was a freakish and disappointing Dancing with the Stars show.
Videos of the ballroom dances, the more boring dances, are in this post. You really should view the waltz of Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff, because that was excellent.
Earlier today we posted all of the Latin dances. As always you can visit our Dancing with the Stars category archive for more videos and commentary on earlier shows.
Our predictive model has been right each week, so we will see what happens tonight. We think it is a very tight race. You can read our predictions about who is in the bottom two, who will be cut tonight, and our surprising determination that Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke have a real shot at winning this year.
Dance the Waltz in Week 8
The first round of ballroom dances are usually boring. This is the one exception for the night. Mario and Karina put together a breathtaking slow dance which should be viewed and appreciated.
Dancing the Fox Trot in Week 8
The purple was working great for Cheryl in this dance. Our scientific methods predict that Emmitt and Cheryl will easily move on to the next round, and are vying with Mario and Karina as frontrunners in the competition! That’s right, Mario and Karina are not way out front as you might think.
Dancing the Tango in Week 8
Yes, that really is theme song from Adam’s family. Bad choice and bad outfits, and the voting fans care about such matters. The second dance was also unappealing. Our prediction model says that Edyta and Joey are in trouble this week, clearly in the bottom two. This is a week where the judges scores may make the difference. Joey Lawrence and Edyta Sliwinska scored merely one point better than Monique and Louis, but on that basis we think Joey and Edyta barely squeak by to the next week.

without Wardrobe Malfunction
There is that black lipstick again, bleh. The dance was boring. The outfits were boring. Everything was boring. Monique Coleman and Louis Van Amstel are in the bottom two. Although we believe it is very, very close between this pair and Joey and Edyta, we do believe that Monique and Louis will be cut tonight.
So there you have it. We will have a tribute to whichever contestant is cut directly after the show.
