Judges’ comments on Tamara’s Week 5 Samba: Maksim: “This is hard, you are an amazing performer. Everything you did separately was great, but together there was a disconnect. You had very little time to get used to each other.” Bruno: “I loved it, you took center stage but when you got in hold there were balance issues and you missed some steps, maybe you were not used to the speed of the dance.” Carrie Ann: “Out of all the women left in this competition, you own it. There was a bit of disconnect, but you were great.” Julianne: “I give you props, the dance is twice is long as in previous weeks, you need to get grounded, you were to erratic.”
