Dancing With the Stars Recap: Season 19 Week 8 “Dynamic Duo Night” - Who Was Eliminated?

Tonight on ABC Dancing With The Stars 2014 continues with an all new Monday November 3, season 19 week 8 episode 10 called “Duo Night”. Tonight’s episode pays tribute to well-known twosomes, both real and fictional, during “dynamic duo” night. The duo dance styles will include Jazz, Cha Cha, Contemporary and the Rumba. Additionally and for the first time this season, the couple with the highest overall score for the night will be granted immunity from elimination. The duos who do not receive immunity will then compete in a dance-off to earn extra judges’ points in an effort to increase their overall score. At the end of the night, one couple will face elimination.

Viennese Waltz: Janel Parrish & Valentin Chmerkovskiy; Antonio Sabato Jr. & Cheryl Burke. Argentine Tango: Lea Thompson & Artem Chigvinstev. Rumba: Alfonso Ribeiro & Witney Carson.

Judges Comments: Len: “I liked it, it could have had a bit more conflict, you were a little bit safe – you have to come back and really go next week.” Julianne: “You had everything but I felt a little underwhelmed, it was a little dated.” Bruno: “I think the style and set up was right, it had to have more reckless badass attitude though.” Carrie Ann: “I felt like your confidence was finally back. I do think some of the moment was mimish, you need more jazz and less ballet.”
