D.L HUGHLEY danced a SAMBA on the fifth episode of Dancing with the Stars: 2013 performance show tonight. The remaining couples hit the dance floor and face an exciting new challenge. In another first for “Dancing with the Stars,” a new twist called “Len’s Side By Side Challenge” tasks each couple to perform a portion of their individual dance alongside a pro dance couple. 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!
The pro couples will included returning favorites Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Anna Trebunskaya, Tristan MacManus, Tony Dovolani, Gleb Savchenko and Chelsie Hightower. This new twist will allow the audience as well as judges to compare the celebrity’s dance technique in real time to a professional’s.
Judges comments: Len: “Well it was like a decaf coffee, it looked alright, but it lacked snap. A couple of plunders lacked attack.” Bruno: “I think you went for aggression. But instead of a panther you were a stomper. It was a brave attempt.” Carrie Ann: “I loved your focus and loved your intensity. It was very evident your lack of technique. But I love how you commit.”
SCORES: Carrie Ann: 6 Len: 6 Bruno: 6 TOTAL: 18/30 – – Vote for D. L Hughley and professional dancer Cheryl Burke at Voting # 1-800-868-3405
