For the first time this season, the couple with the highest score from their solo dance will be granted immunity from elimination next week and will also receive 3 additional points. For the first time ever, each of the six couples that do not receive immunity will then be paired up to compete in a head-to-head dance-off to be voted on by America in real-time on www.ABC.com and the three judges. The couple with the majority of the four potential votes from each dance-off will earn an extra 2 points, increasing their overall score. At the end of the night, one couple will face elimination.
Judges’ comments on Bindi’s Week 8 Foxtrot: Carrie Ann: “I loved this night, that was an incredible routine. I think your secret weapon is your energy, from the moment you start until you are done, is full on energy.” Julianne: “Don’t take this the wrong way, I am trying to find something wrong and this time, when you get into your frame your shoulder comes in. But, that is the only thing, work on it.” Bruno: “You win it, you have the gloss and the glamour, you have the Hollywood sweetheart feel, but be careful about your shoulder.”
JUDGE SCORES: Carrie Ann: 10 Julianne: 9 Bruno: 9 = TOTAL 28/30 – Vote for Bindi Irwin & professional dancer Derek Hough at voting #: 1*855*234*5604.
