Dancing with Meryl and Charlie (Week 7 to 9)

Congratulations to Meryl and Charlie for lasting this long on Dancing with the Stars but I think we expected nothing less from one of the legendary ice dance teams of the last two Olympic cycles. So far, it seems as if Meryl is consistently in the lead but who knows how far both of them will go. Here are the videos for the dances for weeks 7 to 9.

Week 7

Week 7 Team Dances

Warning: Both dances are so campy.

Charlie’s Team

Meryl’s Team

Week 8

Who is this girl? She does not look or feel like Meryl Davis.

Also, that judge who called out Meryl’s feet? It’s not because she’s in ice skates. Even in ice skates, there are skaters who point their toes.

The star of this dance was Sharna’s dress. Love the colour and the shape.

Also, “You have impeccable musicality.” Darling, he’s an ice dancer who’s not trained by Nikolai Morozov. Also, why hasn’t Tanith gotten on this show? That face in the quick shots. Gorgeous.

Celebrity Dance Duels:

Kitsch. Pure. Kitsch.

I was surprised that lift in the middle wasn’t done on ice. It was so fast and furious, signature Meryl & Charlie lift.

Week 9

Loved this jive. And Kristi Yamaguchi came by! What fascinates me with this clip is Meryl’s relationship with Maks and how his frustration doesn’t faze her one bit. Compare that to Tessa dealing with Scott’s frustration on their reality show and how shaken she was. There are times where I’ve wanted to shake Tessa and tell her to be more confident with herself, the way Meryl is here and just be that rock for her partner.

Oh Charlie. Turning on the charm.

Unfortunately, Charlie was eliminated this week and will not be participating in the final. A pity, I wanted him and Meryl to go head to head at the very end.
