Previously on Dancing with the Stars, the judges continued to be mean to Carson Kressley, even though he’s crazy fun to watch. They still praise Chaz Bono to a degree that’s completely out of sync with his accomplishments. And J.R. Martinez continues to be ridiculously good. And it was Eighties Night, so the fashions were even more bizarre than usual.
Hey, Tom Bergeron! I had to stop playing the new Batman game to recap this, so how about you just give me one for free? LIIIIIIIIVVVVE!!!!! Wow, Brooke has ridiculously curly hair tonight. It is not a look that really works for her, if I may get all catty for a moment. We open with a performance of the B Team to a Madonna montage that kicks off with “Like a Virgin”. My mother turned on the TV at this point, thinking it was a performance show. “I don’t know who the stars are this season, but they’re excellent!” A whole choir shows up on “Like a Prayer”, which is a total Glee move.
