In case you missed last night’s first episode of Dancing with the Stars All-Stars, season one winner and General Hospital favorite, Kelly Monaco delivered an extremely sexy and well-executed performance of the Cha-Cha, a dance she never had to do back in season one!

Along with her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, the duo scored a 21.5 and landed in the middle of the pack after the first round of scoring for the night from the judges.  However, each of the judges praised Kelly while also offering a few pointers:   “Wham, bam, thank you, ma’am!” Bruno yelled. “Apolo Anton Ohno isn’t the only who has gotten a whole lot sexier,” Carrie Ann stated.  “You weren’t this good in Season 1,” was said by straight shooter and the hardest judge to please, Len Goodman.

And the end of the night it was Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke at the top of the leaderboard with 24.5, followed by Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd with 24.  Next, was Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel with 22.5, followed by Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough with 22 and also Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff with 22.   The came Kelly and Val with 21.5, along with Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya, and Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower.

Who do you think did the best performance of the night? Who should be booted off on tonight’s first Results Show?  Let us know!

oh, I don’t even know why shy (palin) was picked to be on this Champion show… they should have had people who lost , but should have moved forward on that compettion, like Brandy. She was far better.

I thought the scores were really low last night – for the better dancers that is — like Emmett. Kelly was very good, but Emmett was better… but I totally thought she was gonig to lose her little outfit there! ha!

Kelly& Val did a great job lots of energy and fun. Can’t wait for next weeks performance. Who should go first? Obvious Pam Anderson not good at all too bad for Tristan he is fun to watch. Then the next week Bristol she did at least try though.

Loved Kelly and Val’s performance…the chemistry between them is on fire! I so think that Kelly deserved better scores from the judges, but based on everything I see and know about her, she will come back more determined and rock it even harder next week. You Go Kelly! All your soap fans are rooting for you…Vote #TeamVally

I thought the scores were as expected. They can’t make them too high the first few weeks. I did NOT think Emmitt deserved to be top dog though. Giles deserved that! He was robbed the last time, so he is my pick to win. Kelly in second place would be nice.

I liked almost all of the returning dancers the first time around, but Kelly Monaco definitely is my favorite. I watched this show from day one and was ecstatic when she won that first trophy. Hoping she will do it again. (and maybe THEN John (the whiner-poor sport) O’Hurley will get over his loss)

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
