Melissa Gilbert danced the Argentine Tango tonight as Dancing With The Stars continued with its seventh episode. The theme for this week’s episode is ‘Classical Week.‘ Tonight they have a team dance in addition to their individual routines, The Paso Doble and The Tango. With only seven couples left the pressure is mounting! We recapped the tonight’s show for you and if you want to see how all the couples did go HERE! Did you see Melissa’s performance last week if you missed it you can see it here!
Melissa Gilbert and professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy dancing the Argentine Tango – Maks was not happy with the dance they originally assigned to Melissa and had this to say. “I’m actually, as a bad partner [laughs], I’m battling for what dance we’re going to do. I was told what our next dance is … and I don’t think that that’s what’s best for her, so I’m going to bat for her and try to get the better song, the more suitable, the one that she can keep moving forward with and not something that will set us back. Week 7 is not something that I want to set us back with.”
Judges Comments: Bruno: You are extremely brave to attempt that. You tried very, very hard but at times it looked like you were riding the cyclone in Coney Island. Is twas not clean. Carrie Ann: It was sort of like Cirque De Soleil that really went wrong. You went for quantity and it lacked quality. Len: It is a marriage between the movement and the music and you pulled that off. However, there was so much intensity it lacked some quality. It was full on but it lacked quality.
Scores: Carrie Ann: 7 Len: 7 Bruno: 7 = 21/30
