Can GH's Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy Survive Tonight's Double Elimination On DWTS All-Stars?

Courtesy/ABC

Tonight is a nail-biter for all of the remaining couples who have given their all on the hit ballroom dance competition Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars.   Last night, General Hospital fan favorite Kelly Monaco (Kelly Monaco) took to the floor with her dance partner, Val Chemerkovskiy to perform the Viennese waltz, and later in the night returned to the floor with Val and dancer, Louis Van Amstel for a trio dance performance.

After performing her two routines Monaco spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth where she admitted, “I worked really hard for the Viennese waltz, and I think I improved tremendously from when we started on Tuesday to tonight. I’m satisfied with my performance.”

Kelly paid a special nod to all of her fans who have been instrumental to keeping her and Val in the running thus far for the Mirror Ball Trophy. “I know that fans are supporting us as well.  If they could be in the audience every week, they would. I feel that. I know that stepping out on the floor. When I see those cameras pass by I see all their faces. I know a lot of their faces and I interact with them on Twitter and whatever social media outlets there are. I feel like I’m looking at all their faces when I’m out there.”

At the end of the night’s competition, which combined the scores from last week and last night, Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovoloni are at the top of the leaderboard with a total of 99 points, while Kirstie Alley and Max Chermkovskiy are at the bottom with 79.  But as has been proven week after week, having the highest or lowest total means nothing if the public does not turn out to vote to keep their couple in the running.

So soapers, who do you think will be sent home in tonight’s double elimination on the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars Results Show? Let us know!

she has been great and the Judges have been very critical of her the whole season…………she will fair well because she truly is a star…………outside of Kirstie and Giles……………the true stars always shine the best because they have no prior training in dance.

I totally agree Sal. The judges are so darn hard on Val and Kelly, and it is so blatently obvious. They speak nicely to them and compliment their performance, then they proceed to give them scores that do not reflect the performance. Am I a fan of Kelly and Val – yes, but am I blinded by that – no, I rate the couples based on their performances, not on who is my favorite. Tony and Melissa blew it out of the water last night, and deserve that top spot, and she also does not have any prior dance or gymnastic experience, so kudos to them as well. Is Kirstie in the league of the others – no, but I give her so much credit for keeping up with them at her age, etc. I wish everyone the best of luck, but my fingers are crossed for Val and Kelly who deserve to stay for sure.

Emmit and Kirsty need to go. I like both, but Emmit clearly had lost his spark from season 3 and Kirsty just isn’t as good as the others.

Kelly did a good job yesterday. I agreed with both her scores. Loved that she chose Louis as the 3rd dancer. He’s awesome.

totally agree about Emmit and Kirstie – I like both of them as people and Emmitt is good but Kirstie is basically there because of her fans/comic relief. The rest of the group are just awesome though… I have a feeling Melissa Rycroft may take it all or Shawn Johnson.

I voted. And voted. And voted! Kelly really is GOOD – and deserves to be there! I don’t feel connected AT ALL to Emmit or Apolo. Kirstie is not as good – but she makes me laugh out load every week! I want a Kelly, Gilles & Melissa Final!

I voted for you Kelly!!! as many times as I was allowed on both my phones!! Hope she makes it too the finals…I think she is doing great for not being a trained dancer…!!! Melissa is a trained dancer so of course these routines are easier for her..jmo..

Kirstie really needs to go…should have gone weeks ago!
Apolo is the next lowest and should go, but I’d rather Emmitt go before him.
Hopefully the fans will keep Kelly and Val. They are tied for third, but that doesn’t mean much as we have seen in previous weeks.

So happy Kelly and Val made it through, as they so deserved too. Sorry to see Gilles go, as imo, he did not deserve to go either. Looking forward to next week. Good Luck Kelly and Val.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
