Lots of celebrities have mentioned how they’ve lost weight by competing on “Dancing With the Stars,” and it’s easy to see why.
Last night, many of the stars were barely able to catch their breath after dancing the jitterbug, a bouncy, energetic, athletic – and sometimes acrobatic - dance made popular during World War II.
Donny Osmond and his professional partner Kym Johnson did a fun, train-themed jitterbug that had him huffing and puffing afterwards.
Professional snowboarder Louie Vito seemed so out of breath after his routine that he looked like he was going to do what Osmond’s sister Marie did a few season back on “Dancing:” faint during the judges’ comments.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba also noted that Vito dropped his professional partner Chelsie Hightower twice during their wild jitterbug. “It was all wacko,” added judge Bruno Tonioli.
Meanwhile, Kelly Osbourne did a fun, cute routine with Louis Van Amstel, but didn’t impress the judges, who called her performance “flat footed.”
“It was like a blueberry muffin without the blueberries,” said judge Len Goodman.
He was more complimentary of some of the couples who danced the waltz on last night’s show, giving the thumbs up to celebrities including Melissa Joan Hart and Michael Irvin.
Tonight, the results show features a double elimination. Who do you think should go?
