Dancing with the Stars All Stars Season 15: Week 7

There are no eliminations during Week 7, but there will be a double elimination Week 8.

Week 7 was the week of the Mash-up: two dances fused together.

Apolo and Karina danced a Cha Cha Cha/ Paso Doble fusion-- Len said Apolo really attacked this dance, Apolo Ohno, Apolo oh yes!Bruno said the Cha Cha was clean and the Paso was powerful; triumphant. Carrie Ann liked the hot transition into the Paso, and commented about how he is still pushing himself. I thought he did well and I agree with Carrie Ann, he does seem to push himself more every week.
Scores: 9, 9, 9= 27

Emmitt and Cheryl danced a Rumba/ Samba fusion-- Bruno found it smoothed and balanced, it was difficult but he did it with ease. Carrie Ann said he was lacking in the upper body. Len said he didn't think he could have done that fusion as well as Emmitt did. This was not Emmitt's best dance, but I do think he gave it his best shot, and I'd be surprised if a fan favorite like him went home before the finale.
Scores: 8.5, 9.5, 9.5= 27.5

Kirstie and Maks danced a Quickstep/Samba fusion-- Carrie Ann thought it fell apart when she got to the Samba. Len said she lost her timing but it was an admirable effort. Bruno said it's always great to watch you. That's just it, the entertainment factor is there, but the quality of dance just isn't as high as the rest of the celebrities left in this competition.
Scores: 8, 8, 8= 24

Kelly and Val danced a Foxtrot/ Cha Cha Cha fusion-- Len thought it was lovely. Bruno said the timing and control was good, better than ever. Carrie Ann said that overall it was really beauty and she was impressed with Kelly's ability to combine elegance and sexiness. I loved this dance and I totally believe that they were underscored. Is this sabotage, quite possibly?
Scores: 9, 9, 9= 27

Melissa and Tony danced a Tango/ Cha Cha Cha fusion-- Bruno said you were on fire, the shapes in the tango were fantastic, in your cha cha, you've never been sexier. Carrie Ann said she was a star, and loved the transition. Len said it was beautiful all the way through and well done. He liked how it was a real fusion and went back and forth between dances. I thought Melissa was really exciting and I think based on how she has danced all season, she deserves to be in this finale. Tony deserves it too, his choreography has been phenomenal.
Scores: 10, 9.5, 9.5= 29

Shawn and Mark/ Derek (out with injury) danced a Tango/ Paso Doble fusion-- Carrie Ann said that's exactly what dance fusion should be. It was seamlessly intertwined. Len said I'm voting for you, that was fantastic. Bruno said the fusion was flawless. It was a really fun performance to watch, and I love how Shawn has really matured this season. It just makes everything that much more enjoyable to watch, she looks like she's really having fun.
Scores: 10, 10, 10= 30

Gilles and Pera danced an Argentine Tango/ Samba fusion-- Len thought both dances were well done. Bruno said sultry and intense in the Argentine Tango and exciting and exotic in the Samba. Carrie Ann mentioned the arm thing once again and the audience booed her. She did say it was a fantastic fusion though. I loved Peta's legs in this dance. For some reason though, I started to tune out, I hope Gilles hasn't peaked.
Scores: 9.5, 9.5, 9.5- 28.5
