Dancing with the Stars Season 16: Week 6

Last week I didn't write about Dancing with the Stars because I didn't get to watch it live as a result of everything going on in Boston. I love D.L.'s spirit, but the right decision was made sending him home last week I feel.

Who impressed me? Zendaya shocks me every week. Kellie is beautiful. Jacoby was out of this world; I loved his tricks.

Zendaya and Val danced a Cha Cha Cha to Do I Do by Stevie Wonder-- Len loved the musicality and swivel in her hips and thought it was the perfect way to start the show. Bruno said she could cha cha him any time she wants. Carrie Ann said she blew her away and feels bad for those who must follow her because it was perfection in motion. I still fail to believe that Zendaya is 16; she was so much focus, precision, and she really emotes and feels the dance.
Scores: 10, 9, 10= 29 out of 30

Andy and Sharna danced a Samba to Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder-- To me, I totally get that Andy is taking it seriously. Bruno found it entertaining but couldn't work out the Samba steps. Carrie Ann said you're in my heart and it touches me. She urged him to get more horizontal. Len thought he was entertaining and gave him a big well done. I feel very much like Carrie Ann, there's something about Andy when he dances and your heart is totally with him.
Scores: 6, 6, 6= 18 out of 30 (his scores should have been higher than that, at least a 20)

Sean and Peta danced a Samba to I Wish by Stevie Wonder-- Carrie Ann liked Sean but didn't think he had musicality. Len thinks he should set his sights higher. He thought it was riddled with mistakes. Len said all you guys think that just because you're dancing the Samba that you have to take your shirt off. Bruno said he tried hard, he told him he could get a job as a stripper cause if you got it, flaunt it. He also said that Sean was like a lumberjack. I do think Sean is trying, but this looked awkward at best. He's got to do better quick because if not, he's going home.
Scores: 7, 7, 7= 21 out of 30

Aly and Mark danced the Foxtrot to Isn't She Lovely by Stevie Wonder-- This was so beautiful, filled with tons of precision and joy. It was nice that she dedicated it to Boston. Len thought it was a foxy foxtrot and the performance level was high. Bruno likes her consistency, but her frame lets her down a little bit. Carrie Ann felt she connected and thinks she's an understated performer.
Scores: 9, 9, 9= 27 out of 30

Ingo and Kym danced the Tango to Uptight by Stevie Wonder-- Ingo's frame looked stronger than it has in past weeks. He is someone who hopefully took what the judges said, and applied it going forward. If he survives this week, we will see if he continues to improve. Bruno thinks he can turn it on when he wants to, and has animal intent. He thought his lines were beautiful. Carrie Ann said finally, welcome to the game. Len said, bingo, Ingo, this dance really suited you, well done.
Scores: 8, 8, 8= 24 out of 30

Kellie and Derek danced the Quickstep to Part Time Lover by Stevie Wonder-- Kellie and Derek were amazing; the whole performance was so perfectly in sync. Carrie Ann: perfect posture, nuance, and synchronicity. Len said he thought it was the best dance of Season 16. Len says it is impossible for a couple to dance at that speed and not occasionally lose contact. Bruno thought it was quality dancing.
Scores: 9, 10, 10= 29 out of 30

Victor and Lindsay danced the Rumba to I Just Called to Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder-- Len said you always come out with a fighting spirit, and he said well done. Bruno said he needed more hip action and lost his steps. Carrie Ann liked the chemistry between Lindsay and Victor even though there were a lot of technical part of the dance missing. I agree with Len, Victor is a total fighter; there's a huge part of me that continues to route for him.
Scores: 6, 6, 6= 18 out of 30

Jacoby and Karina danced the Quickstep to For Once in my Life by Stevie Wonder-- Bruno said your energy is amazing, and you put in a lot of work and it shows. Carrie Ann said you surprise me, you bring a new element which I love. Len said you need to work on some stuff, but he likes Jacoby and admires him. This dance didn't suit your style, it's not your best, but not your worst. Entertainment factor with Jacoby is right up there, he's really fun, but technically, he has some work to do.
Scores: 8, 7, 8= 23 out of 30
