Monday (April 25) was “Guilty Pleasures Night” on “Dancing With the Stars,” which seems a little redundant to us. But that’s an argument for another time.
And if there’s a guiltier pleasure than Britney Spears‘ first hit, “… Baby One More Time,” we can scarcely think of it. That was the song Kirstie Alley chose to lead off the night, dancing the samba with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Which she kind of nailed, by the way.
Despite much complaining in the rehearsal montage, Alley dropped one of her best performances of the season, drawing effusive praise from the judges and a pair of 9s from Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli. Carrie Ann Inaba awarded Kirstie and Maks an 8, giving the pair a total of 26.
Here’s their samba. What did you think?
