DwtS 6, Week 8: Performances

Judging by his performances this week, I guess it’s a good thing Cristian decided not to quit Dancing with the Stars.

I was a bit under the weather tonight, so apologies for the lean recap.

57 — Cristian & Cheryl
55 — Kristi & Mark
53 — Mario & Karina
52 — Jason & Edyta
50 — Marissa & Tony

Cristian was the highlight of a lackluster Latin Round, and he was certainly the biggest surprise of the night. He & Cheryl earned the lion’s share of my votes, with the rest going to Kristi & Mark and Mario & Karina for their enjoyable performances.

Jason & Edyta’s Samba was uncharacteristically bad. Still, I don’t think Jason’s in any danger of going home; in fact, he might avoid the Bottom Two altogether. Mario and Marissa probably have the most reason to be concerned.
