It was beautiful.” Len: “I agree 100%, the only thing that is important in this world is family. You needed a little more hip action going on there.” Bruno: “You really portrayed this dance with such warmth and tenderness. Your turns are much improved, your neckline has transformed. You need to put better hip action. It was a great performance.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 7, Bruno 7 = 22/30
Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten – Contemporary – “How to Save a Life” by Ray Chew Live. Alexis’ most memorable year was 2014 when her mother died of cancer.

A little bit too sharp, but good job, well done.” Bruno: “I’ve been there, trust me that she will always be there with you. You danced like an angel, true feeling, deep emotion. I loved it.” Carrie Ann: “The legacy of a loved one that we lose is created by how those who continue on without her live and dance. You gave us a wonderful gift, a poetic, elegant legacy of your mother.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 8, Bruno 9 = 26/30

Judges Comments: Bruno: “Your magic is stronger than ever. We are all under your spell. You were going so fast. I liked how you were so determined and so self-assured, you put so many wonderful nuances into your performance. You are gorgeous.” Carrie Ann: “Your performance has grown so much from the small beginning, very tight moves, you drew us in so deeply and then you gave us so many dimensions of that dance. You gave us the gliding and then the power and then you gave us demure. It was such a beautiful well-rounded performance.” Len: “It was powerful, it was full of gusto but you maintained the elegance of the Viennese Waltz. That was a magic performance.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Bruno 9 = 27/30

Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “It is so hard to judge you. Tonight I saw so much more opening and I really saw you trying and it touched my heart. I do have to say, you didn’t miss any beat, but you are still growing. Keep doing what you did this week, it is going to pay off.” Len: “Your dancing is a work in progress and you haven’t got there yet but I can see a more confident Joe coming out.

Judges Comments: Bruno: “It was so charming and so heartfelt, it was impossible to resist. You showed every emotion, your heart was into it. You had such a wonderful caring touch, a true gentleman. Be careful in hold though because sometimes you are unsteady.” Carrie Ann: “It was such a beautiful extension, I was so touched. You laid it all out there but I did see your posture, I think your emotions took you away a little.” Len: “I liked the sentiment of the whole thing and you had an elegance about you, it was tricky music to dance the Waltz to. If you are going to shine, you need to polish a little bit.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 7, Bruno 7 = 21/30
Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess – Contemporary – “A Million Dreams” from “The Greatest Showman.” Bobby’s most memorable year was 1998 when he had graduated from high school because nobody had done that before in his family.
Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “Every time on this show we are able to see real moments, an authentic magic that blows us away.

This was your best dance, that is all I can say.” Bruno: “Honest, real, fantastic dance, the storytelling was amazing.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 7, Bruno 8 = 23/30

It is your best dance.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Bruno 9 = 27/30

Judges Comments: Bruno: “Demarcus the Titan. That was mind-blowing, you took the floor and you stalked it like a panther.” Carrie Ann: “Not your typical Argentine Tango at all, in fact, it almost leaned towards Paso with the intensity but I realize that is the story you are telling us.” Len: “The lifts were so great, in fact, this whole evening there were a lot of poignant moments, great dancing and you are no exception.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 8, Bruno 9 = 26/30
