Judges comments on Maureen McCormick’s DWTS Season 23 Week 5 Samba:
Bruno: this was really a classic Samba with all of the trimmings. It really outs you in a party mood. One tiny thing, don’t force the balance when you force it, it just looks a little bit tight.
Carrie Ann: what I love about you is your positivity and your enthusiasm is contagious. It’s your spirit that brings that dance to life. Last week you have a great week for you. You are playing your own game and that leads to success.
Pitbull: I have to say the same thing, I love the positivity. On the dance floor, I am far from a dancer, but I did feel a little bit overthinking. With that said, I think you did a good job!
Julianne: You are one slamming hot flamingo! I loved it, you know what I love so much is you are so game for everything. You came out here and you captured what Latin night is all about, I loved it!
