Double dance, double partner for Double D

Posted by packers.com on May 7, 2012 – 8:45 pm

Dancing first this week on “Dancing with the Stars,” the duo of Packers WR Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd delivered the tango without apology, scoring 27 out of 30 points, the same score for the fifth straight week.

Similar to the couple’s first successful tango weeks earlier, the couple again seemed to gratify all three judges.

“Ding dong Donald, a first round knockout,” said Judge Len Goodman.

Judge Bruno Tonioli, in his usual lively approach, praised Donald and Peta as well. “You were going for it like there’s no tomorrow.”

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was the first to give Donald and Peta a perfect 10 for their tango a few weeks ago, but only offered 9 points for this week’s version (along with the other two judges). Inaba also served a side of criticism, hoping for a little more “drama” with their dance.

The Tango was the first of two dances team “Driving Miss Peta” completed on Monday’s Week 8 episode. All six remaining dancing pairs were slotted to complete a “Trio Dance” which involved each ‘star’ dancing with both their typical counterpart and an additional practiced cast member. Driver’s Trio included that of professional dancer and “DWTS” regular, Karina Smirnoff, along with his usual partner, Murgatroyd.

The Driver/Smirnoff/Murgatroyd trio successfully completed their version of the Jive, which featured high-energy moves and quick-paced music.

Judge Inaba provided a much-needed 10 points for the trio while the other judges provided collective 9’s for their second performance of the night, bringing Driver’s total to 55 points.

Taking the score in stride and always with a smile, Driver did reflect with host Brooke Burke. “It hurt,” said Driver. “We thought we made it.”

“Double” must be the theme for this week’s show as double partners, double dances and this week’s contest features a “double elimination” on Tuesday, taking the pool of six couples down to a mere four.

Based on scoring alone, it seems the “Double” theme is working for Double D. Will he get through with his dancing scores and the votes needed to bring him to the next level?

Eliminations continue on “Dancing with the Stars.” Viewers are encouraged to vote via phone and text message for Donald only on the night he performs; online voting ends at 10 a.m. CT the following day. Log on to abc.com to vote.
