Tonight on ABC Dancing With The Stars returns for an ninth week and Alexa Penavega and her professional dancing partner Mark Ballas danced an Contemporary routine to ‘Make it Rain’ by Ed Sheeran. On tonight’s episode the six remaining couples will perform two show-stopping dances. For the first routine, the couples will reveal a dance style not yet performed this season.
Later in the show, they will be moved into teams to perform a side-by-side dance. Inspiration for the team routines were drawn from each teams’ travels around the country to experience live productions of famous shows such as The Beatles™ LOVE™ by Cirque du Soleil®, Broadway’s Chicago and Royal Caribbean’s “We Will Rock You.” At the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated.
Judges’ comments on Alexa’s Week 9 Contemporary: Bruno: “You really danced like a woman possessed. The choreography was brilliant! You danced like you danced before.” Carrie Ann:“That was more than dance, it was about feeling, you danced it raw and ripped it wide open. You pushed that message out there, great job.” Julianne:“When vulnerability comes in, strength comes in. Mark that was so awesomely choreographed. I hear you, I could feel that, you represented your emotions. Thanks for getting that out.”
