Dancing with the Stars Episode Recap: Monday, April 5, 2010

It's storytelling time on Dancing with the Stars! The remaining 10 couples do their best to tell a tale through their routines. Did Chad make a comeback? Did Buzz or Kate make drastic improvements? And who danced blindfolded? Find out below!

Nothing like fancy footwork and some bedtime stories on a Monday night. As Len ordered last week, couples must tell a story in their respective dances. To prep us, we get a pro routine by Val (Maks' brother), Jonathan, Lacey, Snejana, Dmitry and Anna D., acting out the night's three styles through a tale of a tempestuous relationship that ends in true love.

Next we get a tease of the drama to come. Erin will dance blindfolded (the risk Maks mentioned in his blog), Niecy and Louis will portray an interracial couple in the 1960s, and Kate will dance to "Paparazzi," aka the story of her life. There's no teaser for Pam, but she looks like she just stepped off the cover of a trashy romance novel or one of those harlots Jack Sparrow just got done with, so I hope her story is one of those.

Evan Lysacek & Anna Trebunskaya: Quickstep

Evan's got two broken toes, but that's not going to stop him from Dancing.They're performing "Hot Honey Rag" from Chicago (fitting because he's an Illinois native) and their story is that hubby Evan is mad at wife Anna for being late. "I love me some acting," he says. He surprisingly pulls off the acting part well with his solo in the beginning searching for Anna. The routine is crisp, fast, fun and totally works with Evan's skyscraper-esque height. He stays in hold well and his footwork is very light, but it sometimes comes undone. Overall, it's a respectable effort, especially considering he has two broken toes. Oh, and of course, Evan's hair is shellacked yet again. Week 3 and counting! Len totally gets the story because men always wait for ladies to turn up, but he wants him to work on his feet. Bruno says he's ready to give Anna the ride of her life then dump her. Carrie Ann loves the twinkly athleticism and how committed he was to the character.

Score: 26
