ALY RAISMAN danced a JIVE for her trip dance with her partner Mark Ballas and professional dancer Henry Byalikov on the eighth episode of DANCING WITH THE STARS: 2013 performance show tonight. On this week’s show the six remaining couples took to the dance floor and for the first time this season, each couple had to perform two routines in an effort to impress the judges and earn America’s votes. If you missed the show, we recapped tonight’s show for you and if you want to see how all the couples did go HERE!
