I am getting in late again... I gotta stop Monday's from running long! But its the Semi-Finals so how can I NOT report... so tonight, I'm giving you my "notes version"... the things that stand out to me over tonight...
Erin & Maks
8:04 - "I've invested 3 months in this show - I want to invest 2 more weeks" -Maks
8:05 - "Seeing how focused Maks is makes me want it even more"
8:06 - Blue GAUCHOS never go out of style... or Maks in his sheer blue shirt
8:08 - Erin has some sort of spasm as she talks about her nerves, then looks to Maks & says "Sorry Babe"
8:09 - "Bruno just had a premature paddle" - due to the fact he held up a 10 paddle but said 9... oops!
8:13 - Derek is hurt & cant lift his arm. You know its bad when pretty Ken doll curses....
8:14 - Its the Argentine Tango ...on a side note, my dog barks at the TV when another dog comes on - she's sitting up barking at them dancing the whole time... what's up with that?
8:16 - ".... you draw us deeper & deeper & deeper...." - Bruno crawling across the desk... I think he liked it
8:17 - CarrieAnn is in tears... never knew the Argentine Tango, a dance about prostitues, could bring someone to tears.

8:34 - "I'm not the kind of person who really lets go"
8:34 - "What makes you happy Evan?"
8:34 - "...Coffee..."
8:35 - you wont hear me say this often - but that color on Anna is BEAUITFUL
8:36 - "Coffee for you for later" - Tom hands Evan a cup
8:37 - "that Vivality & Vivasacity"... in the most dramatic Bruno voice ever!
8:39 - 10, 9, 10... BOO on you Len - that Fox trot was adorable, fun & had everyone smiling the whole way through...
8:44 - LATIN ROUND... they have to perform a solo...
8:45 - Erin's sister talking about how insecure Erin is about her body... but I can focus on anything but that ORANGE-RED hair that is brighter then the burning bush had to have been!!!
8:46 - "Erin called the house just screaming... I didnt know what happened to her" - Erin's dad discussing the stalker that had been video taping her....
8:47 - "...she's not going to be the victim... this man is not going to stop her"

8:49 - did Maks almost just kick her in the head? WHOOO - that was close!
8:49 - "You were the one who......" - dead air... Bruno must have let a REALLY bad word slip talking on Mak's MESS up
- "that's what the censors earn their money for" - Tom... yep, he must have really let it slip...
8:50 - "This was a funky monkey sorta Paso Doble- I'm confused" -Len (I have to agree with Len - I didnt think it was that great)
8:52 - Maks ripping off his top again & flexing in every possible pose ... the "Lord of the Dance" pose does make me laugh though
8:52 - "Dont miss Mak's regional tour of Spartacus coming to a town near you" - Tom is awesome!
Nicole & Derek
8:58 - I love Nicole's grandmother goes by "tutu"... I may have to chance my name from Nanny to TUTU
8:59 - Shout out to my home town - LOUISVILLE KY
9:00 - A shout out from P Diddy?
9:01 - Cha Cha to Prince's "Kiss" while she's looking VERY Prince out of Purple Rain - yep... TOTALLY 80's night!
9:03 - "You are the sexy-licious purple queen of the cha cha cha"
9:09 - "if you're having a birthday & you need someone to be a buzz kill, Len IS available"
Chad & Cheryl
9:10 - "My first words were "child, please"
9:11 - "I knew to be successful in life, sports would be my way out"
9:13 - the Samba to a song that ISNT Prince... whew

9:26 - Solo time for Evan in the Paso... I like the angry Evan
9:27 - HOT DANG.... look at that kiss... that Anna put that in on purpose.... us ladies know that one!
9:29 - 10, 10, 10.... OH yeah Evan.... GOLD!!!
What did you think? Think Chad needs to go? In love with Evan? Rooting for Nicole? I'd be afraid to say no to that since I know P.Diddy is on her side...he may have someone beat you up if you go against her...
Can you believe another year of dance is over with next week? How fast this season has cha cha'ed by!
