Judges comments: Carrie Ann: “I feel for you having a broken rib makes that dance difficult. I think you did it well – but the injury stifeled the movement.” Ricky: “I am going ask on behalf of the nation, how you feel. It is incredible. Mad respect because someone else would have said I am gone. You too have amazing chemistry.” Len: “There were two sections of salsa. It was a little bit careful. You went wrong once. It was good.” Bruno: “You went for ghetto salsa from the hood. The fact is you cannot gain that kind of feel if you cannot use your body to the full extent. But I am sure you are going to be back next week.
