Judges comments on Marilu Henner’s DWTS Season 23 week 9 Samba:
Idina: I have known Marilu for a while and we have been in the theater scene together, I am inspired by her. You looked you were having an amazing time, and these guys sounded like they approved. If I could give as much joy, love, and humor to my audience as you have through your career then I feel very lucky.
Julianne: Idina is absolutely right, it was like finally, you looked so free out there. You were enjoying yourself, and that was a real Samba. Here’s what I am going to say, I have to practice it all right? What a night for you Marilu!
Bruno: Yes my darling, forget about December, you look perfectly defrosted to me. It was as bright and sizzling as a midsummer’s day! You had warmth, joy, plenty of Samba, and your legs were wonderfully straight and you put the bows in. And, not a hint of heat exhaustion!
Carrie Ann: What I loved the most was seeing a true partnership coming together tonight. I was feeling not only the Derek and Marilu love, but the Samba love. You came out and you gave your best, it was really fun to watch!
