For the first time in “Dancing” history, each of our judges will be assigned a couple to coach for one dance, choosing their song, dance style and overall creative. The Judges’ Choice will be judged by the three remaining judges and will count towards their overall scores.
On last week’s episode of DWTS Nastia performed a Paso Doble routine and the judges scored Rumer a 36/40 for her performance. Carrie Ann loved her performance and had this to say, “What I love is that you are still really performing Nastia, push and go beyond the boundaries.”
