RECAPAmber Riley and Derek Hough dancing the Quick Step. Judges Comments: Len “Tonight is the beginning of the end, so I am hoping everyone is bringing out everything. I know you have an injury, your choreography was terrific however for me you were a little loose in your top lines.” Bruno “Your performance level is always up, but now as we are getting to the semi-finals, you need to fix your top line otherwise it spoils the beauty of your face.” Carrie Ann “The good news is that you set the standard for this competition, but you need to keep it up to that level.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, Bruno 8 = 24 [VIDEO HERE]

Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani dancing the Tango. Bruno “That was a bad ass tango, when you maintain your focus you are absolutely stunning.

Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff dancing the Waltz. Judges Comments: Carrie Ann “You both weren’t on your centers, you were a bit off.” Len “It is so expressive, it is like poetry in motion but I would have liked more in hold. Drive more on the heel in the slows, but a great number.” Bruno “I though that was enchanting, it was incredible, flawless musicality. It was breathtaking.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Bruno 10 = 28 [VIDEO HERE]

Bill Engval and Emma Slater dancing Charleston. Judges Comments: Bruno “Timing is the most important thing, you were off.” Carrie Ann “I really enjoy you dance, but we are in the quarter finals, you were better in the practice. It is still a pleasure to watch you.” Len “I loved you this season, but you need to nail it on the next dance or you are going to be in trouble.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 7, Bruno 7 = 21 [VIDEO HERE]

Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Val Chmerovskiy dancing the Viennese Waltz. Judges Comments: Carrie Ann “I loved that you listened to us last week, it had dynamic quality and I love your lines. There was just a slight out of sync, overall great.” Len “You are my top dancer on the leader board, I am a fan but this wasn’t my cup of tea. I love your dancing, it was good but not great.” Bruno “This week you hit it, you did it in a different way, it came from within and I love the way you put the contemporary touches in it. Well done.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 8, Bruno 9 = 26 [VIDEO HERE]
