Dancing with the Stars All-Stars has now aired on all parts of the U.S. and after each of the five remaining couples performed two dances in the semi-final round tonight, the competition is very close!

Our favorite couple General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, did not start out too well after the first dance which was a “Surfer Tango”.   Many felt the highlight of this dance was Val in a Speedo! When the judges weighed in, Bruno said Kelly was upstaged by the Speedo, and her placement wasn’t there!  The duo scored a 25.5 after the first round of dancing, landing them at the bottom of the leaderboard.

However, Kelly and Val were the last couple to dance, and for their final dance of the evening they rumba’d to the music of Michael Jackson’s, “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You.”   Talk about sexy!  It was steamy and yet beautiful to watch!  And while Val felt that they deserved “10’s” the duo scored 9.5’s across the board from the judges giving them a 28.5.

At the end of the night, Kelly and Val tied with Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke for the total lowest score on the leaderboard with a combined total of 54.    At the top, however, was Derek Hough and Shawn Johnson with 59 , followed by Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani with 57.5, and then Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff with 57.  There is a double elimination on tomorrow’s night’s Results Show! 

So soapers, did you vote tonight for Kelly and Val?  Who do you think should be going home on tomorrow night’s double elimination?  Let us know!

It is genuinely sad how the judges truly show favoritism, as it is the same couples week after week who they drool over. Even when “the chosen” make mistakes, which the judges very briefly brush over, they still score 9’s and 9.5’s, but Kelly and Val are often highly praised and still get lower scores. I am not blinded by my like for Kelly and Val either, as when they do not do quite as well as some of the others, I get it (I was not blown away with their first performance last night, but thought the second truly deserved 10’s). I hope Kelly and Val make it into the finals (my fingers are crossed), but if they do not, they truly did an amazing job and have much to be proud of. If they do not make it (and I want them to), I am rooting for Tony and Melissa – they can pull off the same high flying moves that Shawn can without the gymnastics background (and Kelly does well in that area too). Good Luck Kelly and Val, and here’s hoping we can enjoy the two of you in the finals !!!!!

I love Kelly and Val but I think Shawn Johnson is so talented so my bet is on her or Melissa Rycroft winning this. The top 3 tonight should be Apolo, Shawn & Melissa. Sorry Kel & Emmitt – you’re good, but they’re great!

I thin Emmit needs to go home. I love Kelly and Val. Kelly has shown more imiprovement than anyone on the show. Shswn’s gymnastics are cute, but not so much dancy. I sure hope Kelly and Val make it to the finals. I agree that the judges have short changed them so many times. Go Kelly and Val!!!

Judges have really been making me angry when it comes to Kelly. She has a flawless dance and gets at the MOST 9.5, yet when Apolo slips or Shawn throws out the rulebook or Melissa seems to not throw herself into the dance, they get 10s. I find it absurd and if Kelly goes home, I will not blame her, Val, or America- I’ll blame Len, Bruno, and Carrie Ann because of their favoritism and horrible critiques. Kelly has shown the most improvement, her and Val show how passionate they are in every dance, not to mention Kelly does more technically challenging dances than staying safe like her competitors.

Thank god…and the fans…Kelly made it through to the finals!
I am so happy that Apolo and Emmitt finally are gone. Nice guys, but they didn’t deserve to go on.

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.
