Final eight. Or, um, seven. One of the girls is missing. And it”s (racking my brain, racking my brain) Ashleigh! No! This can”t be happening! Or maybe it isn”t, because Cat, who is dressed like a 1980s pirate who chooses to wear her ill-gotten gold as ugly shorts instead of burying it (though really, I”d suggest burying those shorts or at least melting them down for cash or a nice necklace), isn”t mentioning it. At all. She yacks about next week, and then this week, and I have just about decided that Ashleigh is dead and everyone”s too broken up about it to say anything or I just imagined she wasn”t in the intro and I”m having early onset dementia, when she finally tells Ashleigh to come onto the stage. So, at least I know she”s not dead. That”s a good thing.
Ashleigh, it turns out, has injured herself. In rehearsal, she accidentally popped her shoulder out of its socket and then got all war commando and popped it back in. Go, Ashleigh! I knew the girl was tough. Anyway, she”s not dancing tonight and seems pretty broken up about it, but we can still vote for her. I hope she gets the pity vote. She looks so sad when she”s not wearing high heels and a ridiculous sequined dress. Poor Ashleigh.
Anyway, everyone else can dance, so let”s get to it!
