KELLIE PICKLER danced a FOXTROT, 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: Carrie Ann: “I love the side by side challenge. What I have learned you have all blossomed by working with pros. Tht was fabulous, that was a million dollar dazzler.” Len: “That was not a foxtrot, that was a hot trot. You put the oo in ooze. You dance like that you are in the finals.” Bruno: “You had the sophisticated elegance of great Gatsby. Fantastic!”
