Bill and Emma danced the Tango-- This was beyond weird because the music threw me off, it seemed like this shouldn't have been the song choice for this type of dance. Len praised all the content in that piece. Carrie Ann found it strangely odd, but liked it. Bruno blamed the timing issues on the music.
Scores: 8, 8, 7= 23 out of 30
Elizabeth and Val danced the Cha Cha Cha-- I just loved this number, I love the relationship that has formed from this dance partnership. I think as the pro, Val completely trusts Elizabeth. Bruno said it was so sexy, it just killed him, and it was so sharp and brilliant. Carrie Ann said Val tapped into her strength, and she grows every week. Len said they have such a formidable partnership and they're always consistent.
Scores: 10, 10, 10= 30 out of 30 (first perfect score of the season)
Leah and Tony danced the Quickstep-- I do think this was a definite improvement over last week. At times, I found the dance to be on pause, but Leah's personality sold it. Carrie Ann said it was the biggest turnaround she has seen. Len praised their quickstep. Bruno said Leah was like Ginger and he thought she was confident. Scores: 9, 9, 9= 27 out of 30
Brant and Peta danced the Tango-- This was an awesome tango, especially if we're comparing it to the other tango done on the same night. I loved the intensity of it. Bruno called Brant the prince of darkness and loved to see him driving the dance as a leading man. Bruno said it was the best performance wise but he lost balance a couple of times. Len found it crisp and liked how it went straight into the tango. Carrie Ann said technique wise it was awesome, but he did stumble a couple of times.
Scores: 9, 10, 9= 29 out of 30
Amber and Derek danced the Samba-- For some reason, I don't get as excited when Amber dances as other people do. I found this dance a tad repetitive. Bruno said the performance value was great and she got all the components of the Samba were there. Carrie Ann called it Amberlicious. Len said what I thought-- a tad repetitive, good for you for saying it Len.
Scores: 10, 8, 10= 28 out of 30
Jack and Cheryl danced the Paso Doble-- There were parts that looked a little off, but there were parts of it that looked great. I loved the attitude of the dance and the details of the dance. It was focused and traditional. Carrie Ann said it had the intensity that it felt one dimensional. Len thought it was full of intent and purpose. He saw one mistake but felt the rest was top notch. Bruno felt his timing wasn't good, he was chasing the music.
Scores: 8, 9, 8= 25 out of 30
Nicole and Sasha danced the Foxtrot-- Len said he is happy with that dance. Bruno said she graduated from charm school, and had elegance and moved with such grace. He told her to keep her extension all the way though. Carrie Ann said she has improved the most of anybody, and that she is impressed. I agree with Carrie Ann's comment, it's evident that she has worked hard to improve with each passing week.
Scores: 9, 9, 9= 27 out of 30
Corbin and Karina danced the Viennese Waltz-- The choreography was beautiful for sure; it looked like a movie. I do think it took away from the technique of the dance. Bruno thought it was epic but his lines were lost. Carrie Ann liked what they were going for but there needed to be more hold. She liked the passion of it. Len liked the lyrical movement and the theme that ran through it, but there wasn't enough technique.
Scores: 8, 7, 8= 23 out of 30
Elizabeth & Val- 30/30
Brant & Peta- 28/30

Snooki & Sasha- 27/30
Leah & Tony- 27/30
Jack & Cheryl- 25/30
Corbin & Karina- 23/30

And the big surprise is that no one is going home because somehow the votes were inaccurate. So next week, is it possible 2 people are going home? My prediction is that it's Bill and Emma and Jack and Cheryl
