Dancing with the Stars: Season 19

Antonio Sabato Jr. and Cheryl Burke danced a Cha Cha Cha--Len told him to work on his footwork. Julianne agreed with Len but said he had great extension. Carrie Ann liked their chemistry and told him to apply it to dances going forward. Scores: 6, 6, 6, 7= 25 out of 40 (order is Carrie Ann, Len, Julianne, Bruno)

Lea Thompson and Artem Chignitsev danced a Foxtrot-- Lea impressed me with her first move. Julianne thought it was beautiful and said her lines were spectacular.  Bruno said she needs to maintain her posture and hold. Carrie Ann thought it was one of the best first Foxtrots she ever seen. She thinks that they are a well balanced team. Len thought it was terrific. Scores: 8, 8, 8, 8= 32 out of 40

Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy danced a Jive-- Ooohh, this was fun! She went for it. Bruno said it was spicy hot, naughty, naughty! He felt she went out full energy and he loves sexy. He told her to polish the Jive side. Carrie Ann agreed and said polish the kicks and flicks, but you have great potential. Len liked how it was sharp and clean. Julianne called it sharp, raw, sexy, and fierce, and said it's hard to come out the first week and do Jive. Scores: 7, 7, 7, 8= 29 out of 40

Lolo Jones and Keo Motsepe danced a Cha Cha Cha-- This was a little rough, she looked scared and rehearsed. Keo kept trying to bring her out and it wasn't happening. Carrie Ann said uhh ohh. Len told her not to give up because she does have personality. Julianne told her to work on the fluidity with her legs. Bruno said we've all messed it up, he said you messed up, you're gorgeous, come back next week and try again. Scores: 6, 6, 5, 5= 22 out of 40

Betsey Johnson and Tony Dovolani danced a Cha Cha Cha-- Betsey is totally hilarious and she has such a great personality. Len and Julianne said they were sad that it got messed up at the end. Bruno likes that she's a spunky rebel with gusto. Scores: 5, 5, 5, 5= 20 out of 40

Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess danced a Foxtrot-- Wow, Tavis Smiley, that was so unexpected. He came out with so much flair. Julianne thought it was awesome and he came out with a different side of him. Bruno said the joyful side bursts out of you, and said it was a great performance. Carrie Ann said you're a natural mover, well done. Len said work on your footwork, but for fun and enjoyment, it was great. Tavis said he has already lost 20 pounds doing the show. Scores: 7, 7, 8, 7= 29 out of 40 .... I liked his, people get the "some" of us, but not the "sum" of us. ;-) ....... then Erin said, some more, and Tom said he wants dim sum.

Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas danced a Cha Cha Cha-- Sadie was so cute and fun. Bruno called her a bird of paradise, and her leg placement was so fantastic.Carrie Ann said she is a star. Len loved her hand placement. Julianne thought she was the entire package. Scores: 8, 8, 9, 9= 34 out of 40

Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater danced a Cha Cha Cha-- Carrie Ann said she wanted to see more steps. Len said the engine was running but he never got out of first gear. He said it was too tight. I have to say I agree with Len, I didn't like it either. Julianne said, I wanna dance with you, it looked so fun. I don't know what Julianne is thinking. Bruno said it needed fine tuning. Scores: 7, 6, 6, 6=25 out of 40

Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker danced a Jive-- I loved that, I can tell Allison is an awesome teacher, and I can see that they were having a ton of fun. Len said work on the details but great potential. Julianne said he was a natural performer. Carrie Ann said you're a polished performer, everything was so precise. Scores: 8, 7, 7, 8= 30 out of 40

Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd danced a Cha Cha Cha-- Seriously loved everything about that performance. It was so fun and entertaining and not too serious. Julianne thought he looked sexy, she said he was rico suave. Bruno said he was cool grandpa and he can get down. Carrie Ann said fantastic, you were funkier than Bruno. Len said painless, fun; I enjoyed it. Chong said I am really good at doing what beautiful women tell me what to do. Scores: 7, 6, 7, 7= 27 out of 30

Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff danced a Foxtrot-- Bruno found him light on his feet and told him to keep his shoulders down. Carrie Ann said you are so sexy out there and I loved the way you handled Karina. Len said it was dandy Randy, lovely, well done. Julianne said you are the epitome of a man. Karina looked amazing and Randy looked great with her, so dashing and light on his feet. Scores: 8, 7, 8, 8= 31 out of 40

Bethany Mota and Derek Hough danced a Jive-- Carrie Ann found Bethany effervescent. Len said it was terrific. Carrie Ann and Bruno agree that she has to work on having consistent energy. I was a little bit underwhelmed by her performance, but maybe I have high expectations because it's Derek. Scores: 8, 8, 8, 8= 32 out of 40

Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson danced a Jive-- It was so fun, thought I was watching Carlton Banks but with more polish. Len said best dance of the night without question. Julianne said he has so much style and musicality and complimented Witney on her choreography. Bruno said, Prince of Bel Aire, you're the King of the Night. Carrie Ann said, you just raised the stakes my friend. Scores: 9, 9, 9, 9= 36 out of 40

Who is going home? Bottom three prediction....... Michael Waltrip, Betsey Johnson, Lolo Jones. Lolo should go because she just had such a bad attitude, and I am surprised at that behavior coming from someone who is such a champion. If she is deserving of a second chance, Michael should go because Betsey is way too fun.
