Dancing With The Stars All-Stars Iconic Dance Review: Who Will Be Eliminated (POLL)

The third week of Dancing with the Stars rolled around and offered up some of the highest scores of the 15th season. One couple danced what was touted as “the best dance” in the history of DWTS, while the controversial Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas yet again scored the lowest points of the night. Celeb Dirty Laundry is bringing you a full episode review, so read below to find out how your favourites did!

Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya danced the Cha-Cha-Cha by Joey McIntyre and Ashly DelGrosso (Season 1). Their performance was critically lauded by all three judges and earned them the highest personal score of their three week run on the show. Carrie Ann lauded them for their “precise and tight moves”, while Len said that the “Cha-Cha-Cha is not an easy dance, you had it perfect.” The couple received 8 points from each judge, which pushed their overall season score to 68.8 and slotted them into 9th place on the overall standings. Their total score of 24.0 earned them a tied second last place of the night, with Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy also tied up with 24.0 points. Their three week scores so far – 21.5, 22.5, 24.0

Giles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd danced the Tango by Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Season 10). Their performance was on par with their successful run during the All-Stars Season. The ever campy Bruno referred to the performance as “Fifty Shades of Giles”, while Carrie Ann said they were “amazing, but a little out of sync”. The couple received 8.5 from Len and Bruno, while Carrie Ann scored them a highly successful 8 points. Giles and Peta are still at the top of the leader board with the highest total score of the competition (75.0), but unfortunately, their 25.5 total points of the night still stuffed them into the middle of the average pack. Their three week scores so far – 24.0, 25.5, 25.5

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani danced the Samba by JR Martinez and Karina Smirnoff (Season 13). Their performance was praised by all three judges. Carrie Ann said it was “stellar”, Bruno’s one-liner quip was “you are the Samba Sensation” and Len said it had “great technique”. They received an almost perfect 9 points from each judge and their 27 points tied with Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy score as the highest scoring couple of the night. Their extremely successful performance placed them just behind the top 5 of the competition, in 6th place, with an overall score of 71.5, only 3.5 points behind front runners Giles and Peta. Their three week scores so far – 21.0, 23.5, 27.0

Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff danced the Foxtrot by Giles Marini and Cheryl Burke (Season 8). Their performance scored them a personal best of the season with excellent reviews by the judges. Bruno referred to the performance as “sensual, classic and classy”, while Carrie Ann thought “it was absolutely stunning”. They received an almost perfect 9 points from Carrie Ann, while Len and Bruno gave them 8 and 8.5 points respectively. Their season high pushed them into 4th place in the overall standings with a third week score of 25.5 and a total overall score of 72.0, tied with Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke. Their three week scores so far – 22.0, 24.5, 25.5

Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy danced the Paso Doble by Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Season 4). Their performance was critically praised by all three judges. Bruno called it a “defining performance”, while Len asked, “Where did that come from?” All three judges scored them 9 points, which gave them an overall score of 27.0, and tied them with Melissa and Tony as the highest scoring couple of the night. Kelly and Val are currently in 7th place in the season standings with 70.5 points, exactly 1 point behind Melissa and Tony. Their three week scores so far – 21.5, 22.0, 27.0

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced the Cha-Cha-Cha by Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya (Season 13). Their performance, for the first time this season, was absolutely excellent. Carrie Ann called it the “dance of the season”, while Bruno “nearly burst a gut”. Their points, however, did not reflect the critical praise by the judges, as Kirstie and Maks suffered from a tied second last place score of 24.0. Kirstie and Maks are still at the bottom of the pack in 11th place with a total of 64 points, 11 points behind front runners Giles and Peta. Their season average is behind Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson, even though they had done three dances and Joey and Kym only did two. Their three week scores so far – 19.0, 21.0, 24.0

Sabrina Bryan and Louis van Amstel danced the Paso Doble by Mel B and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Season 5). Their performance was below average, seeing that they were the highest scoring couple of last week. Bruno said they had “maximum fire power”, while Carrie Ann said that they “brought nothing new”. All three judges scored them 8.5 points, stuffed them into the middle of the pack with 25.5 points and tied them with 4 other couples. They still hold second place in the leader board standings with 74.0, exactly one point behind Giles and Peta. Their three week scores so far – 22.5, 26.0, 25.5

Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke danced the Paso Doble by Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff (Season 3). Their performance was one of the worst performances of the night. Bruno told Emmitt to “watch his shoulders”, while Len “preferred more finesse here and there”. Carrie Ann and Bruno scored them 8.5 points, while Len scored them an average 8.0. This pushed them into the third worst score position of the night with 25.0 points. They slipped down to tie in 4th place in the overall standings of the season with 72.0 points. Their three week scores so far – 24.5, 22.5, 25.0

Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower danced the Quickstep by Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Season 4). Their performance was also a personal best of the season, but was still not strong enough to push them into the front of the pack. Carrie Ann thought it was “so good”, while Bruno enjoyed it until the dress was stepped on and “it went down”. They scored 8.5 from all of three judges. This also slipped them into the middle of the pack with 25.5. They are currently in 8th place on the leader board with a total of 69.5 – 5.5 points behind the leaders, Giles and Peta. Their three week scores so far – 21.5, 23.0, 25.5

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas danced the Paso Doble by Joana Krupa and Derek Hough (Season 9). Their performance, as usual, was the worst of the night. The judges praised them for their “attack, killer streak and being worthy competitors”. Yeah, right. All three judges scored the couple 7.5, the lowest individual and overall score of the night. Their overall score of 22.5 points, the amount Joey and Kym were sent home with last week, placed them at the bottom of the feeding pool and also placed them dead last in the overall standings with a three week total of 60.0 points – a mere 17 points ahead of the two week overall score of Joey and Kym. Their three week scores so far – 19.5,18.0, 22.5

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough danced the Quickstep by Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough (Season 5). Their performance was the second best of the night, only 0.5 points behind Kelly/Val and Melissa/Tony. According to the judges, Shawn and Derek “broke the rules”; therefore they had to subtract points from the scores. If it were not for this little indiscretion, we think Shawn and Derek would have taken the lead. The judges absolutely praised their performance and called it “the best dance” in the history of the show.  Carrie Ann, Bruno and Len gave 9, 8 and 9.5 respectively. The 9.5 Bruno score was also the highest individual score so far this season. Their overall score of 26.5 pushed them into 3rd place on the overall season standings, only 1.5 points behind front runners Giles and Peta. Their three week scores so far – 22.0, 25.0, 26.5
