It’s Instant Jive night on DANCING WITH THE STARS and all the couples had two dances to learn. In record speed – 20 minutes as co-host Brooke Burke Charvet kept repeating – the dynamic duos had to put the moves they’ve practiced all week together with music they just heard, just like last season’s Instant Cha Cha Cha. The results – mixed.

Some, like middle-of-the-packers Hope Sole & Maks Chmerkovskiy rose to the challenge. Others, like front runners Ricki Lake & Derek Hough languished a bit. And Nancy Grace & Tristan Macmanus, well, if this dance didn’t say send me home I don’t know what will. Am I the only one sick and tired of her verbally abusing Macmanus? Enough, already! Does Grace think it’s funny or is she just a b**ch? I am not sure if she is just playing it up for the cameras or not but either way…please make it stop! Send her home. Put Macmanus out of his misery.

The bigger and better news of the night – is J.R Martinez and Karina Smirnoff getting two, not one, but TWO perfect scores! Awesome. He kicked butt out on the dance floor, giving it his all and the judges awarded him for it. Keeping their tap, tap, tapping feet in the game was Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke, who came in third while Solo & Chmerkovskiy tied for second with Lake & Hough.

A weak start but a strong finish. Len Goodman was pleased to see his buttocks tucked in during the Quickstep. Carrie Ann Inaba said he was smooth. Bruno Tonioli also thought it was a clean performance.

Her dancing is uneventful and her mouth is tiresome. Goodman said her Tango was well done. Inaba told her it was a great job. Tonioli said she had the right attitude.

INSTANT JIVE

Rob Kardashian (reality star) and his partner Cheryl Burke
He totally blew it in the beginning and then the whole thing seemed to be off. Goodman told him to sharpen his feet. Inaba thought he showed complete control. Tonioli said it was obvious that there wasn’t enough time to perfect the dance.

She’s the Ann Coulter of the ballroom, oh and she lost her place continuously. Tonioli said her Jive was a little laid back. Inaba told her she got lost too. But Goodman said it best when he called her Cinderella and said it is midnight and time to go home.
