Dancing with the Stars: Season 16 Week 2

Week 2 was all about the Quickstep, Jazz, and the Jive and the results were pretty surprising.

Up first was Ingo and Kyn dancing the Quickstep-- I thought Ingo did an awesome job of keeping up with Kym cause there was lots of movement and steps in that dance. Len liked that he danced and said his frame was good, steps were hit and miss, but he improved overall. Bruno felt the choreography was challenging but that he has the spirit and attitude. Carrie Ann felt his frame was weak. Scores: 6, 7, 7= 20

Dorothy and Tristan danced the Jive-- Dorothy didn't have the speed she needed in this dance; there was too much hesitation. Bruno said it was brave, but the mistakes were obvious. He also urged her to relax. Carrie Ann sensed her fear. Len said it had promise but didn't quite deliver, and he pointed out the big mistake when she fell on the slide her Tristan's legs. Dorothy feels bad that she can't live up to Tristan's high standards. Scores: 5, 5, 5= 15

Jacoby and Karina danced Jazz-- The routine was extremely energetic and entertaining. Karina's choreography was wonderful and it looked pretty difficult; Jacoby did well for week two. Carrie Ann thought Jacoby was fantastic and liked his lines. Len said it was fun and enjoyed watching it; he said the dance complimented his strengths. He hopes that going forward it will be as good when he does classical dances. Bruno said Jacoby is a performer.  Scores: 8, 7, 8= 23

Victor and Lindsay danced a Jive-- Wow, Victor had a lot of charm, but he could not keep up with Lindsay. Len said it had energy, but it didn't knock his socks off. He was looking for it to be sharper and cleaner. Bruno thought it looked like a Zumba dance at one point and he felt his legs were all wrong in the dance. Carrie Ann said he is on the right track but he needs to work on getting his feet right. Scores: 6, 6, 6=18

Wynonna and Tony danced a Quickstep-- The steps are good, but being that this is a supposed to be a Quickstep this is pretty slow. Bruno liked the idea but thought it became a casual stroll at the end. He felt she had to keep up the energy. Carrie Ann liked her frame and posture, but felt that she was playing it too safe. Len said she has to improve in several areas but he found it entertaining. Scores: 6, 6, 6= 18

Zendaya and Val danced a Jive-- They were both awesome; I loved the style of the choreography and thr steps, so cool. Carrie Ann said you are the whole she-bang, you killed that number. Len said you were fantastic, well done. Bruno said a star is born big time; you hit some breathtaking lines. Scores: 9, 8, 9= 30

Andy and Sharna danced Jazz-- I thought Andy did a great job of entertaining and his dancing was good too, better than I expected. Len said Andy isn't the best dancer but it was fun. Bruno loved it. Carrie Ann said that Andy dancing Jazz allowed him to be wacky. Scores: 7, 6, 7= 20

Sean and Peta danced a Jive-- I thought Sean did improve and he did a pretty good job of keeping up with Peta. Bruno asked Sean to save him. He found it more Lindey-hop and Jitterbug. Carrie Ann told him to feel the music because once he gets it, then watch out. Len thought that it was too much spectacle and not enough Jive dancing. Scores: 7, 6, 7= 20

Aly and Mark danced a Quickstep-- Loved this, it was so fast, intricate, and fun. Carrie Ann thought it was the best Quickstep of the night; she loved the finesse and attention to detail. Len liked the precision, body contact, and speed. Bruno loved her personality, but urged her to watch her top line. Scores: 8, 8, 8= 24

Lisa and Gleb danced a Jive-- It appears as though this wasn't rehearsed enough. Lisa's kicks are not good, it's neat, but not free enough. Len felt the dance never took off, it was too wooden, but neat and precise. He also thought it wasn't pretty. Carrie Ann gets mad the Gleb for the lift and tells Lisa to let go or she isn't going to go far in the competition. Scores: 6, 6, 6= 18

D.L. and Cheryl danced a Quickstep-- This was the biggest improvement from week one to week two. I think his scores should have reflected that. Bruno saw his effort, and said he did a good job. Carrie Ann said  people don't realize watching the show how hard it is, and that he is on the right track. Len said the idea of the show is to get better week by week. Scores: 5, 5, 6= 16

Kellie and Derek danced Jazz-- This was the best performance of the night. I loved Zendaya and Aly but I feel like this should have been scored higher. Carrie Ann loved it and called Kellie a dancer. She thought it was amazing and loved her artistry. Len  said last week was a spark, this week was a fire. Bruno called it modern Jazz at it's most effective. Scores: 9, 8, 9= 26

Week one and two scores combined:

Zendaya And Val – 50 out of 60
Kellie And Derek- 47 out of 60
Aly And Mark- 45 out of 60
Jacoby And Karina- 43 out of 60
Ingo And Kym- 40 out of 60
Sean And Peta- 39 out of 60
Andy And Sharna- 37 out of 60
Lisa And Gleb- 36 out of 60
Victor And Lindsay- 36 out of 60
Dorothy And Tristan- 36 out of 60
Wynonna And Tony- 36 out of 60
D.L. And Cheryl- 28 out of 60

My bottom three prediction: D.L., Dorothy, and Lisa
