Judges comments: Len: May I say congrats for making it through to week 7.  The Bull Writer becomes the Bull rider.  But you forgot to be a matador.  Mandy: Bonner I have worked with you since the beginning and I am proud of you.  Sharna you choreographed an incredible performance and Bonner you held your own.  Bruno:  A fantastic scene but they forgot to oil the joints. Carrie Ann: Hey I love this one so much I disagree I feel you got a little lost.  I like the way you dance & move. That you have, I don’t feel like you matched up to the paso.
