Up first tonight is Christina Milian and Mark Ballas dancing the Cha Cha Cha. Judges Comments: Len “That was a fantastic Cha Cha Cha, great technique, fantastic.” Bruno “Forget your troubles, you painted the perfect picture of a hot Latina. I am all flustered, I don’t know why.” Carrie Ann “You have been great but tonight that was special, it was different and the moves were all great.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 10, Bruno 9 = 28 [VIDEO HERE]

Next are Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani dancing Contemporary. Judges Comments: Carrie Ann “I loved the concept and I loved the message, but I feel like when the lifts started it didn’t feel like one seamless story telling moment, it was a little rough.” Len “I loved the concept was terrific, the way you broke free. The lifts were labored and not great.” Bruno “I think Leah is back, you took it on and it was very very hard. It is a lot to take on and you did well. Your performance and the story telling was very very good.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 7, Bruno 8 = 22 [VIDEO HERE]

Next are Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff dancing the Fox Trot. Judges Comments: Len “You are a terrific dancer, what I love is whatever dance you get, you get the character. When you were in hold you did a great job. Your footwork was good, but I thought the last lift was out of character. Overall great dance.” Bruno “You could be the love child of Fred Astaire and Ben Vereen, it was great.” Carrie Ann “I am so torn, the last two lifts your feet were off the ground. Overall it was good though” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Bruno 10 = 28 [VIDEO HERE]

Next are Bill Engval and Emma Slater dancing the Viennese Waltz. Judges Comments: Bruno “Honest and heartfelt, a few tiny issues; watch your arms”. Carrie Ann “Dancing is about touching our souls and you did it, but you were a bit off.” Len “I liked the romance of the dance and your framework, well done.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, Bruno 8 = 24 [VIDEO HERE]

Next are Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Sasha Farber dancing the Jazz.

Next are Amber Riley and Derek Hough dancing Fox Trot. Judges Comments: Bruno “One thing is for sure, you are here to stay. Sensational, you are a performing power house, you are a star.” Carrie Ann “You danced the heck out of that routine, you hit all the routines like it’s nothing, you guys are always in perfect sync.” Len “I agree with Bruno, you are a star, you have a wonderful personality. I have to say, the hold was lacking, there wasn’t enough.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 7, Bruno 10 = 26 [VIDEO HERE]

The last duo are Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Val Chmerovskiy dancing the Jive. Judges Comments: Carrie Ann “The kicks were a little off but thank your for taking me back.” Len “The kicks are only an opinion, I thought you did a great job.
