DWTS All-Stars Results: GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy SAFE! Marini and Alley Voted Off!

The power of the soap fans and fan bases are key to the success and failure of this year’s highly competitive season of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars and it was certainly made clearer last night on the Results Show!

In a nail-biter of a moment, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy were standing along side Kirstie Alley and Val’s older brother, Maxim, with one couple going home …  and that couple was revealed to be Kirstie and Maxs, meaning that Kelly and Val have made into the semi-finals next week!

Now the fact that last night featured a double elimination made almost every couple vulnerable, but when came time to the second results of the night, that had Apolo Anton Ohno and Kirina Smirnoff  standing alongside Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd with one couple being booted off.  As it turned out, the results had one of the heavy favorites having danced his last dance as Marini was voted out!   Of note real-life couple Maxim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd both ended their side of the competition when their stars were given the heave-ho.

That leaves five couples in the competition for the semi-final round which is going to feature another round of oddball dance routines.  One again each couple, chose next week’s dance combo for  one another.   And here is what we will be watching the remaining duos perform:  Melissa and Tony: “Caveman” Hustle, Shawn and Derek: “Knight Rider” Banghra, Apolo and Karina: “Big Top” Jazz  Emmitt and Cheryl: “Espionage” Lindy Hop and Kelly and Val: “Surfer” Flamenco.

Ok soapers, did the right couples go home last night?  Will you be there in force next week and keep Kelly Monaco and Val in the running in a very critical week of competition?  Let us know!

Yes Kirstie should have gone home. I thought the second elimination might be Emmitt. I am a Kelly and Apolo fan. So I was happy they were spared. Also tony and Melissa are doing fantastic. Those are the three I want in the finals.

I think Kirstie had reached the end of her rope. But I think Gilles was a better dancer than Emmett (by far). I actually think Emmett is the weakest dancer left. Overall all I think Shawn & Melissa should be in the finals…as for…as…

Emmett- I don’t think his body of dancing is up to snuff and he shouldn’t advance.

Apolo – He has had some up and down performances. Some have been good others..not so much…last time I was really wowed with one of his performances that was back when he did the quickstep. His trio was fun…but a grease lightning jive has been done to death on DWTS so it didn’t feel fresh and new…still good though. Karina is pushing him so there doesn’t seem to be alot of joy in the rehersal room. They have to put a concerted effort forward to have the appearance of chemistry but it doesn’t seem like it comes natural to them.

Kelly – my home girl. When she is on she is right up there (paso, contemporary, fusion, jive trio) she is right up there with the top ladies. But when she is a little off the judges cut her no slack. Even on an off day she is much better than Emmett and on par with Apolo depending on the dance. What she can do better than everyone else is really perform her dance and emote. Val should captalize on that and set her apart. It is no surprise to me that her best dances were the one’s where emotion was needed to sell the performance.

Go Team Vally!

I personally think that Emmitt should have gone home with Kirstie not Gilles, but there can only be one winner now so it will be sad to see a favorite go each week.

First off his named is spelled Maks, not Max–and it was about time he and Kristie went home. Gilles peaked too earlier, but Melissa is on fire. I am hoping Kelly can win it, not because I’m a GH fan, but because to me it would be way cool if the first winner of DWTS won the all star season. Unfortunately I think Shawn will win, which is a shame because her pro has already won three mirror ball trophies, so it will be a real bore if he won it again.

I’m so happy for Kelly!! I think she has been amazing!! Go #TeamVally!!

Kristie and Emmitt need to go!! Kristie was horrible. I am all for supporting Plus size gals but we need to find one who can dance up to par. Giles should not have gone home especially if Kristie is still in the race.

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!”

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.
