Jodie Sweetin & Keo Motsepe dancing Quickstep to “For Once in My Life” by Stevie Wonder [VIDEO HERE]

Judges Comments: Len: “I love commitment and attack in the Quickstep and that is exactly what you did. You lost body contact but your energy and giving it all you got, that is what you gave me.” Bruno: “It is about freedom of movement and it was really good, much better than usual and you are going in the right direction.” Carrie Ann: “Actually, what I love is your aura tonight, you are lighthearted. I give you a lot of credit, you did great and muscled your way through it. Keo missed a step, but Jodie kept powering through it and that is tough to do. You did lose sync and the body contact was a bit off.”

JUDGES SCORES: Carrie Ann: 8 Len: 9 Bruno: 9 = TOTAL 26/30

Antonio Brown & Sharna Burgess dancing the Tango to “Paint It Black” by The Rolling Stones [VIDEO HERE]

I loved your spirit now, your determination.” Bruno: “You have awakened the drama, you were going for it intensely. You have to get the foot work right, you need to work on your precision.” Carrie Ann: “This week your speed was your enemy in your dance. You need to get the technique down and finish your moves. You need to finish the movements, that is what is lacking.”
