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 Nick’s Week 8 Contemporary: Bruno: “That was a love poem perfectly visualized through dance. The story telling woven into the choreography was brilliant, not a dull moment.” Carrie Ann: “You took my breath away, I have been riding you hard to get one with the dance, tonight that was the best dance ever.” Julianne: “I think you guys are all pretty close, what you did tonight is showed you are a dancer, you have adapted every week but tonight, you are truly a dancer.”
