Joanna and Derek surprised everyone last night. Their “paso doble from the future” was creepy, inventive, and hypnotic. I usually don’t like sitting through same performance again, but I can stomach this one.

I guess the fans appreciated the refreshing routine as well because Joanna and Derek are safe.

Michael Buble reminds me of Harry Connick, Jr. and Josh Groban. I don’t really understand what they do. Are just they singers? Are they songwriters? Do they play instruments? I’ve heard Michael Buble’s name mentioned over the past few years, but this is first time I’ve heard his music. I can honestly say that I’ve never met anybody who owns one of his albums. Is this what adult contemporary sounds like?

Mya is safe. Duh. If she doesn’t make it to the finals, I will personally have “Dancing with the Stars” cancelled by the sheer virility of this blog. I’m sure all of my five readers would follow me to the gates.

This “Dance Center” segment with ESPN’s Kenny Mayne, Jerry Rice, and Len Goodman is hilarious. Have they done this before? If you haven’t seen Kenny’s online web series, “Mayne Street,” click here.

I don’t know what’s going on with this dance featuring Mark Ballas and some girl named Sabrina Bryant. I guess viewers voted to see this happen — some goofy kid even designed their costumes.

Is Michael Buble this century’s Frank Sinatra? I don’t even want to think about that.

Wow, Donny and Kym are safe. The judges were really hard on Donny last night, so I thought he was definitely cooked.

Hey it’s Susan Boyle! Here’s some food for thought: Is Susan Boyle this century’s Frank Sinatra?

The string section needs to shut the hell up — I can barely hear her. Susan Boyle’s rise to fame is fascinating, though. She was plucked from her humble, yet lonely lifestyle and placed under the global spotlight. Months later, she nearly went bonkers. Norm MacDonald told a story about seeing a hypnotist named Raveen the Impossibilist. During the show, Raveen made a guy believe he was a chicken. When the hypnotist snapped his fingers, the man came back to reality. Norm didn’t really understand that logic. How could one’s state of mind switch between two completely different states so quickly? Your brain would be shattered. Obviously, Norm is just being funny, but the situation is similar to Susan Boyle’s drastic transition.

As much as I don’t care for Aaron Carter, he is a much better dancer than Kelly. His dances last night proved that. Still, I’m not surprised he’s going home given how much America loves Ozzy’s daughter.

Lastly, Len and Aaron need to stop pushing this father/son son thing. It’s too weird.
