I am at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon at MGM Grand for a quick 50-minute morsels of magnificence meal before Lily Tomlin’s debut, her first-ever Las Vegas premiere, so tonight’s report will be abbreviated.
SPOILER ALERT: Please do not read any further if you want to get the full surprise and drama of watching the West Coast tape-delayed broadcast of ABC’s top-rated Dancing With the Stars. But come back after the show to compare notes with us!
The first couple voted safe on DWTS tonight is our Las Vegas Academy graduate Derek Hough and model Joanna Krupa. They reprised their futuristic paso doble. Singer Mya and Dmitry Chaplin are safe to continue. Anticipation builds for Susan’s Boyle performance. And who will be ousted in the final three permutations.
Miracle! Flamingo headliner Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson are declared safe, which as we juggled earlier today, means it’s Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff vs. Kelly Osbourne and Louis Van Amstel after Susan sings. So next week’s semifinalists will come down to Mya, Joanna, Donny and either Aaron or Kelly. My bet is Kelly stays and Aaron goes tonight. Kelly and Aaron are standing there as if it’s a firing squad facing them.
Two songs from Michael Buble on tonight’s DWTS and of course the one and only “I Dreamed a Dream” from Susan. Kelly is safe, and Aaron and Karina are eliminated after weeks of scraping along the bottom. All exactly as we predicted. So if Kelly gets aced out next week in the semifinals, that gives us Joanna, Mya and Donny in the finals. Donny must toss last night’s paso doble costume!
