Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson – Quickstep – “Adventure of a Lifetime” by Coldplay

Frankie has done acting, car racing and been part of a band but he looks back at it as if it wasn’t him; he doesn’t remember it, he has had 9 concussions and a fair amount of mini-strokes (TIAs). He admits to never talking to a doctor about it. His most memorable year is 2017, he learned to live in the present and even if he doesn’t remember things, he is happy!

Len: When it was light it was fluffy, like my mom’s Yorkshire pudding. Lots of quickstep content which I appreciate, thoroughly enjoyed it and a great opening to tonight’s show and well done.

Bruno: You two really know how to put on the glitz and the glamor. You really acted like a racer determined to get across the finish line. Keep going!

Carrie Anne: There is no better moment, than the present, to express your joy. What’s most alluring about your dancing is how contagious your joy is in every movement. Your dance is clean and neat and you are back in the ballroom!!

Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke – Viennese Waltz – “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston

Bruno: This was your most accomplished performance to date. Elegant. Smart. Great Posture. I am so surprised it was wonderful.

Carrie Anne: Your grandmother is right – you keep showing up and you have struggled through this process. I saw poise and elegance; a new reverence to the dance and it elevated everything you did. Well done.

Len: Congratulations, it was a very well-crafted routine, there was an ease and elegance about it and the emotion of the dance came out. You came out and did great.

Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev – Contemporary – “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten

2016, the year Nikki made her comeback to the WWE ring. Brie Bella and John Cena talk about possible paralysis and how scary it was. Brie says her sister really is FEARLESS, and she proved it by returning to the ring 7 months after life changing surgery.

Carrie Anne: Working with silks – that was the perfect blend of a newfound artistry. I saw all your inner dialogue and I feel like this is the first time we were able to see that. It was beautiful and powerful.

Len: I liked it and it was very creative, it showed your dance and athletic skills. You did great things with the silk, it was strong, powerful, dynamic and great!

Bruno: You were so powerful out there and very sexy. It was done with heart, a contemporary interpretation of the Kama Sutra.

Len: It was touching. I loved that it was creative. You’re a big guy who danced with sensitivity and that should be commended.

Bruno: I love it because you showed your intensity. Light on your feet and energy was much better; watch your balance.

Carrie Anne: Beautifully executed, you are so unique. I want to thank you because its moments like this that I thank God that I get to do this. That was a incredible tribute.

Carrie Anne: Rumba is the woman’s dance; it was an excellent dance for you, you lost your balance but lent itself to the storytelling. That was so touching, but I saw the wobble.

Len: I don’t think anything is going to stop you now Drew, you are on a roll and that was twice as much fun, twice the energy and definitely your best dance.

Bruno: I thought I was hallucinating (Jonathan joined them). You kept it together. It was a full-on jive with a “feel good” factor.

Carrie Anne: I loved it but you need to fix the weird movement your hands are doing. It’s not major but you were pronging it.

Scores: Carrie Anne: 8 Len: 8 Bruno: 8 Total: 24/30
