‘Dancing with the Stars’ 17 review: Corbin Bleu dances to ‘Game of Thrones’ theme, blows minds

Meet Corbin -Who went home on “Dancing with the Stars” tonight? In some ways, we don’t even really care who went home after watching someone dancing to the “Game of Thrones” theme! This may be the most awesome thing that this show has ever done, mostly because Corbin Bleu is not someone that we would have initially pegged as a “Game of Thrones” fan (however we stand by the fact that everyone really should be since this show is beyond incredible), and it is somewhat surprising given that ABC isn’t usually in the game of promoting other shows not airing on their network.

There was no recreation of the Red Wedding during this routine, even though the judges tried to do this to Corbin afterward. In proving that they have zero capacity for fun sometimes, they all were slightly confused by this waltz / pado doble hybrid. It probably would have helped if Karina Smirnoff was familiar with the show, that way we could have seen Corbin sporting a Jon Snow wig, or if she brought in some dragons to set the stage on fire. This also may have been better if Corbin had dressed as anyone other than someone who died during the first season. (If you still haven’t watched season 1 at this point, it’s not our problem anymore.)

Oh yeah, so the results: Nobody went home this week, so that was hardly the most exciting end to a performance show ever. Elizabeth Berkley stole the night courtesy of a routine that got the first perfect score of the season, and there were other 10s that rained down from the heavens. Amber Riley, who has long been at the top of our rankings, also did very well during a routine that actually included the difficult technique known as the samba roll.

The person most likely in trouble tonight is Bill Engvall and Emma Slater, since they did have the lowest scores, but given that they do have that “Blue Collar” audience, don’t be surprised if someone else leaves in another Christina Milian-like shocker. Grade: B-.

Watch the video of Corbin’s routine below, and tell us: Who was your favorite on “Dancing with the Stars” tonight, and do you think that this “Switch-Up Challenge” at the end was a little too chaotic? Be sure to share your thoughts below!
