Job well done.
This week's Dancing With The Stars may prove to be Maurice Greene’s best dance so far. In the practice video he was struggling with the footwork so his partner Cheryl Burke took him to the park for tire practice.
Back in the ballroom, they kicked off the performance with Maurice jumping over Cheryl from the stage. Once the main part of the dance routine, Maurice actually display good the footwork. The jive really let his personality show well, which is his biggest strengths. All things considered, Maurice and Greene delivered a very entertaining performance.
Carrie Ann called Maurice a wild untamed beast, adding that it worked perfectly in the jive. Great job. Len said this is more like it. Fast, bright, lively. Full of kicks. He thought it was Maurice's best dance. Bruno told Maurice that he can rock when he wants to. Good pace, sense of energy, and fun. He also liked the attention to detail Maurice showed. Score: 24 (8,8,8).
And now comes word that Olympian Misty May-Treanor suffered an ankle injury, not a broken ankle, as some reports claimed, and her status is uncertain. On the dance floor, Warren Sapp is displaying skills much like his championship days back for the Bucs.
New episodes air on Tuesdays and results air on Wednesdays. The team, consisting of a professional dancer and a celebrity, receiving the lowest combination of judge scores and viewer's scores each week is eliminated from the show.
Phone lines, text votes (AT&T customers only) and online polls will open at the top of each performance show so that viewers can vote for their favorites. Phone and text lines will remain open until noon (Eastern Time) on the day of the results show.
To vote for Maurice Greene, dial 800-868-3404. The text-in code is 3404.
