RECAP: Kiss performs the opener and it will certainly be difficult to beat the excitement from this performance. Here are the contestants in order of appearance.
Sherri Shepherd and professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy dancing the Tango to Quite Riot’s “Cum On Feel The Noise”.
Bruno – you did a lap dance for me, I love you when you are mean and moody, ‘voulez vous coucher avec moi”, you needed to be a little sharper but I love you when you are nasty.
Carrie Ann – I think what was lacking is your natural exuberance, there wasn’t any sparkle on the dance floor.
Len – be still my beating heart, the last two weeks you didn’t have dances that showcased your bubbly personality but I loved it.
Scores: Carrie Ann 7 – Len – 7 – Bruno 7 – Total – 21
Katherine Jenkins and professional dancer Mark Ballas dancing Paso Doble to Muse’s “Time Is Running Out”.
Bruno – out leashing a whirlwind of fury, but you need to be careful, you lacked definition, it wasn’t as clean and precise as it should have been.
Carrie Ann – you weren’t on your feet tonight, the intensity was there but not the footing.
Len – it had promise but it didn’t quite deliver.
Scores: Carrie Ann 8 – Len 8 – Bruno 8 – Total: 24
Jaleel White and professional dancer Kym Johnson dancing the Tango to the Rolling Stone’s “Satisfaction”. Awesome performance, it will be tough for the other dancers to beat this one tonight! The judges were totally unfair with their scores.
Bruno - you got the “Jagger” perfect, but it was a little under powered, more drive and more aggression in the foot work.
Carrie Ann - I loved it, there was just something funky and weird about it but don’t be too smooth next time, but I loved it.
Len - I loved the humour you put into it, it needed more attack and aggression, the footwork has to be like a panther, but as a performance it was great.
Scores: Carrie Ann 8 – Len 7 – Bruno 7 – Total: 22
Melissa Gilbert and professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy dancing the Paso Doble to The White Stripes’ “Conquest”.
Carrie Ann – I thought this was your best performance by far, when you are in hold you are holding on to dear life, you need to find a balance.
Len – I liked it, I was concerned but you came out with confidence, I am looking forward to seeing you in a slower more lyrical dances, I think you are going to be great.
Bruno – hot blooded drama but you messed up the ending, the slower parts great, at times I feel that you are running for it instead of keeping up with it.
Scores: Carrie Ann 7 – Len 8 – Bruno 7 – Total = 22
Donald Driver and professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd dancing the Paso Doble to Jimmy Hendrix’s “Purple Haze”.
Bruno – Great guns Donald! Muscular, masculine, magnificent!
Carrie Ann – What did I just see the most psychedelic hottest – one of the most memorable moments of this season. Amazing Dancing WOW!
Len – I never thought I would get excited seeing a man with his shirt off – no one can accuse you of holding back I don’t know if you frightened the bull but you scared me to death. Donald your best dance
Scores: Carrie Ann – 9 Bruno – 9 Len – 9 Total 27
Gladys Knight and professional dancer Tristan MacManus, dancing the The Tango to “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
Bruno – Gladys you are a class act. This was the most difficult song to pick. You have to adapt your footwork and it was difficult. You did a good job with it.
Carrie Ann – By far your most ambitious routine. But, I think the song was a hard one to dance too and it did not quite come together. It was a little bit in pieces.
Len – Tristan I have to say good job with the song. Gladys you coped well but your posture has to be stronger. Not you’re best dance but not the worst
Scores: Carrie Ann – 7 Bruno – 6 Len – 7 Total 20
William Levy and professional dancer Cheryl Burke, dancing the The Jive to “Were Not Going To Take It”.
Bruno – You’re performances always rock the house. But you went wrong quite a few times. You have so much talent but tonight you were not as good as it usually is.
Carrie Ann – You have something very sensual you have to watch the routine and stay focused you have so much talent.
Len – Well it is what it is – you went wrong, you lost timing. It’s one of those things the show is live you cannot go it again. Last week you went wrong this week you went wrong you have to nail the routines.
Scores: Scores: Carrie Ann – 7 Bruno – 7 Len – 8 Total 22
Roshon Fegan and professional dancer Chelsie Hightower dancing the Viennese Waltz to David Cook’s “This Is The Time Of My Life”.
Len Goodman – good job dog! I thought you performed it with style, it had great rotation, there was a little stumble, but good job dog.
Bruno - you are flying so high you can catch the sky, I love the way you extend your lines, elegant and romantic I loved it.
Carrie Ann – it was like watching the climax of a Disney movie, it was wonderful, of all the men you are the best dancer.
Scores: Carrie Ann 9 – Len 8 – Bruno 9 – Total – 26
Maria Menounos and professional dancer Derek Hough dancing the Tango to Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out”.
Bruno – your top line is the best, what you can do with your foot healed will be amazing.
Carrie Ann – you guys have such incredible chemistry, I was in love with it, it was very good.
Len – occasionally I thought you lost some of the control, but I loved your posture, it was pretty good.
Scores: Carrie Ann 9 – Len 8 – Bruno 9 – Total: 26
Gavin DeGraw and professional dancer Karina Smirnoff dancing the Tango to the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black”.
Bruno – you were very determined and focused, but your frame was bad, it was like looking like a turtle sometimes, I’m sorry.
Carrie Ann – I felt like I was watching Johnny Depp on the stage, I thought your posture was a little strange but your movements were great.
Len – I liked it, it had flair and attitude, the trouble was your posture, you need to tuck your bum in.
Scores: Carrie Ann 8 – Len 8 – Bruno 7 – Total: 23
