Ugh. Disney songs and Donny Osmond. This is not going to be my favorite night. They've given the show the traditional Disney opening, with a mirror ball behind Cinderella's castle. The pros start the night with a medley of Disney songs. Donny Osmond is introduced as guest judge. Charlie and Sharna are safe, then Drew and Cheryl get their good news. Drew Carey & Cheryl Burke, Quickstep From "Aladdin," "Friend Like Me" Drew and Cheryl are glad to be back together this week.

Ocean City -- "No wonder I had an image problem," deadpans Donny Osmond, looking at himself bell-bottom clad, mop-topped and ever-smiling on an early 1970s record jacket. He shakes his head. "Look at that outfit, man."The old album was thrust at him onstage at Scandals nightclub in Ocean City, where Mr. Osmond, now 33 and still wholesomely handsome, played a short solo set Sunday night in front of about 300 fans.He opened the show with "Love Will Survive," the first single from his new album "Eyes Don't Lie," and the audience -- most of them women about his age and just as clean-cut -- applauded warmly but not giddily.

BAKA, DEEDA, OJI, Gunga, Leelee, Uma, Zayda and Wahoo share something beyond membership in the baby-talk hall of fame: These Americans are allergic to the terms "Grandfather" and "Grandmother." Those well-trod names have become too old. At least for the 39 million baby boomers who are now exploring the even more youthful world of Babies "R" Us. "The name thing is an issue," observes Chris Crosby, publisher of Grand, a magazine for grandparents. "We all grew up in a culture that put a negative connotation on the terminology we used.

How did I get here? How could this have happened? If you asked me a month ago what are the places you would be least likely to find me, one would have been a nunnery on a French mountaintop (I'm male, Jewish, hate to fly and have vertigo). The other would be a Donny Osmond concert. Yet here I am, front and center in the Lyric, Row E, Seat 102. And I'm not alone. This is a surprise to me. I didn't know there were Donny Osmond fans. I don't believe I've ever met one before. In fact, I'm sure of it. Here's another surprising thing: The handsome man up on the stage with a set of teeth like a keyboard, he's not 13 years old. That's about the age of the only Donny Osmond I'm aware of. And frankly, I only dimly recall that one. Nice kid, lots of brothers, tight, spangly costumes, and music that couldn't have been more grating to me. Back then, the world divided itself neatly.

RALPH TRESVANTRalph Tresvant (MCA 10116)Even in its teen-idol prime, New Edition was never anybody's idea of a supergroup. Since splitting up, however, the group has produced nothing but heavy-hitters: Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, Bell Biv DeVoe, and now, Ralph Tresvant. What's their secret? Obviously, good taste in producers is part of it -- "Ralph Tresvant," for instance, leans heavily on the ever-popular team of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis -- but the real magic in these albums has been their ability to reinforce the familiar while simultaneously opening new ground.

BETHESDA -- You could cut the excitement with a butter knife."Ladies and gentlemen the president of the United States," Tommy "The Matchmaker" Curtis announced breathlessly at the Yacht Club of Bethesda. All heads pivoted. All hearts double-clutched at this over-30, we-love-Barry-Manilow nightclub where everyone is somebody -- famous.TV cameras from inside the Beltway and way outside (Japan, Germany) focused on President Clinton as he lumbered to the dance floor, as "California Girls" was piped in. On his arms and back, eight Monica Lewinskys -- a gaggle of frisky interns with their berets and bedroom eyes fixed on the chief executive.
