Dancing with the Stars: Season 16 Week 3

Last week was a huge surprise; the show said goodbye to Dorothy Hamill as she bowed out following an injury that could have become permanent had she continued dancing. The bottom two stars last week, boxer Victor Ortiz and reality star Lisa Vanderpump got a last minute reprieve. They survived to dance another week.

This week was prom week on the show and overall, many of the celebs saw improvement, and really stepped up.

Up first was Aly and Mark dancing a Viennese Waltz-- Their dance was beautiful and so light. Bruno said he was swept away  and loved Aly's expression. He wants her to work on her frame. Carrie Ann said she is fluid, but she needs to work on staying in character. Len faked them out saying he wasn't impressed at all, and then he said, April Fools! Scores: 7, 8, 8= 23

Andy and Sharna danced a Cha cha cha-- I love how Andy really wants this and is making an effort, but at the same time, he is not taking himself too seriously. I love that! He is so whimsical and fun. Bruno said his timing and placement is off, but he knows how to entertain. Carrie Ann said Andy, you try with your full heart and soul every week, you need to cha cha more, but you are totally entertaining. Len said you're not a great dancer, but you make me feel good.  Scores: 6, 6, 6= 18

Ingo and Kym danced a Paso Doble-- Ingo has great spirit and determination, but his posture isn't great and he is a bit too aggressive. Paso requires aggression but it also requires passion. Carrie Ann thought he captured the power of Paso, but his core is weak and he needs to strengthen his core in order to dance better. Len said it had great attack, but he needed stronger posture, more cheers than jeers. Bruno told him it was too aggressive, but he can tell that he works hard. He told him to refine his shapes. Scores: 7, 7, 7= 21

Lisa and Gleb danced a Viennese Waltz-- This was a big improvement over last week, but weak in comparison to some of the other dancers. Len thought, bright and breezy, free and easy. He liked the feel of it, but didn't think the hold was good. Bruno thought it was regal. Carrie Ann thought she did well, but like Aly, warned her to stay in character throughout. Scores: 7, 7, 7= 21

Kellie and Derek danced a Jive-- I want to know what Kellie Pickler can't do! This woman is amazing; she brings it every week, and I am so impressed. Bruno thought it was crisp and precise. Carrie Ann called is ridiculously amazing, that's the fastest routine I have ever seen. Len declared Kellie queen of the prom! Scores: 8, 9, 8= 25

Victor and Lindsay danced Contemporary-- I think this was the biggest improvement this week. Victor and Lindsay had a great connection. Carrie Ann said wow, you're a dancer, that was breathtaking, and you two had great chemistry. Len said he was pleasantly surprised, the lifts were very good, work on dance a little more, but your best so far. Bruno said you were gentle, caring, and sentimental. Scores: 8, 7, 8= 23

D.L. and Cheryl danced Salsa-- I did see an effort from D.L; I agree with Carrie Ann and I feel like the guys are being a little too hard on him. Len said I admire your spirit but it wasn't a salsa, there wasn't enough hip action, rhythm, and passing. Bruno said you've got to get the hips going. Carrie Ann said I see improvement every week; I want you to work on your musicality. Scores: 6, 5, 5= 16

Jacoby and Karina danced a Rumba-- Oh wow! Their connection was off the charts, and Jacoby was intense, passionate, and amazing. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen as I watched them. Bruno said it was smoldering, he was really into it, and had great arm extensions. Carrie Ann said I'm impressed, you have incredible artistry and you were connected to the music. That was hot. Len was shocked; he said it was refined and he had quality of movement.  Scores: 8, 8, 8= 24

Wynonna and Tony danced a Samba-- I think Wynonna is such a sweet person, but this was not good. It was far too slow and she was practically walking through the dance. Carrie Ann felt the dance wasn't coming out. Len said you look magnificent, but you don't move, and there is no rhythm. Bruno found it sedated for a performance and urged her to hit it hard. Scores: 5, 5, 5= 15

Sean and Peta danced a Cha cha cha-- This is another couple that has improved. I could see that Sean had a great attitude going into this dance. Len said great energy, full of attack, work on your feet, but best from you so far. Bruno said he will give Sean his number, and tells him to clean up his footwork and finish his moves. Carrie Ann compliments the way Sean hits each move with such precision. Bruno then gets up to try and dance with Sean. Scores: 7, 7, 7= 21

Zendaya and Val danced a Viennese Waltz-- This was so airy and free; I love the way both of them glided across the stage and their ease of movement was beautiful. Bruno said as enchanting and charming as Venice in the moonlight, overall beautiful. Carrie Ann you have great lyrical quality to your movement. Your emotional connection is beyond your years. Len said your dancing is so natural, but warns all the couples going forward to be in hold more in the Viennese Waltz. Scores: 8, 8, 8= 24
