Hayes Grier and his partner Emma Slater dancing the Quickstep

Judges Comments: Julianne: “It was fresh, it was useful and it was everything that you are as a couple. I just want you to get your booty under a bit.” Bruno: “It was hip, it was cool, it had joyfulness, you were like a super model, you just lost your frame a bit, but your best dance so far.” Carrie Ann: “You stayed in hold the whole way through, I loved it. I enjoyed the sound of your feet.”

Carlos Panavega and his partner Whitney dancing the Cha Cha

Judges Comments: Bruno:Never leave up the chase until you win, I appreciate what you put into this but at times you were squatty, you missed a couple of steps. You covered it up beautifully.” Carrie Ann: “I wasn’t impressed tonight, I think you are fantastic and have so much swagger but you shortened it, don’t shorten it.” Julianne: “You have style, you have the groove, you have swagger, you are such a great performer but your legs were really bent and that is why you were squatty. Thank you though for the entertainment.”

Gary Busey and his partner Anna Trebunskaya dancing the Paso Doble

Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “Intensity check, lots of checks but no Paso Doble. You were out of your element, but it was still fun to watch.” Julianne: “You are having so much fun, we can’t but smile and root for you. I was a little intimated that you were going to forget your steps. I love the entertainment.” Bruno: “You went monumental with splendor, but the steps were off kilter. I look forward to seeing next week.”

Andy Grammer and his partner Allison Holker dancing Contemporary

Judges Comments: Julianne: “Dancing is hard, it takes a lot of time and energy and there is nothing like that feeling where you are so present and tonight I felt that. You have to finish your arms though, but it was really beautiful and so much better than last night.” Bruno:That was difficult, but you did a very good job. Everything was good, but you nearly missed the lift.” Carrie Ann: “Last night you struggled with the music, but tonight you listened to us, I felt the commitment, you were in it, well done.”

Alexa Panavega and her partner Mark Ballas dancing the Rumba

Judges Comments: Bruno: “No messing around, sensual, classic Rumba.” Carrie Ann: “I love hearing more about our pros, you nailed the signature move, however in the beginning you were a bit stiff – it didn’t quite come together for me.” Julianne: “Tonight is about being poised, I agree with Carrie Ann, at times you didn’t do the hip action but it was still beautiful.”

Paula Dean and her partner Louis Van Amstel dancing the Tango

Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “You are so sexy, I was blown away with your sex appeal. You made a few mistakes, you are light on your feet and it is time to get into the detail, you need to get the choreography.” Julianne: “We do have to take into consideration that there are two dances, tonight you had this attitude sass thing, you were giving it and I love it.” Bruno: “Red hot mama, I love it. Keep boiling, but don’t boil over because then you forget the steps, keep the right temperature at all times.”

Bindi Irwin and her partner Derek Hough dancing the Waltz

Judges Comments: Julianne: “What I just saw was two dancers dancing as one, it was so beautiful. You are such a blessing to girls out there that it is ok to go outside your comfort zone.” Bruno:That was so beautiful, it was so good but be careful with your shoulders, it was close to perfection.” Carrie Ann: “It was absolutely stunning, something magical was happening until your feet lifted off the floor, it was so special.”

Kim Zolciak with her partner Tony Dovolani dancing the Foxtrot

Judges Comments: Bruno: “We all like the new Kim, you have the potential so don’t play it safe. You have to push it further, you have a long way to go, watch your footwork, but there was progress.” Carrie Ann: “I think you really are a better dancer than you think you are. You did better yesterday, you dropped the energy back out of the dance.” Julianne: “The thing to work on is when you hit a line you stop, you need to continue, travel with your long legs. We love it and want you to improve each week.”

You were the only one tonight doing a Quickstep who did it on their toes.”
