Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess – Salsa – “GDFR” by Flo Rida

Judges Comments: Len: “You put the boy in flamboyant. Not the most conventional of salsas, but you are not a conventional guy. But you came out, you entertained, you attacked the dance, you had fun. I enjoyed watching you, well done.” Bruno: “It was like Bobby and the salsa angels. It looked like someone that just gatecrashed a Victoria Secret show. We were bedazzled by the spectacular, the girls looked hot, you had a great 8-pack. I don’t know if it was a salsa, but as a show it was great.” Carrie Ann: “I’m still a bit baffled because I never thought I would hear you dance to that song in the semi-finals. You didn’t miss any steps, but you were off beat. I love your energy and you are such a joy to watch.

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 7, Bruno 7 = 21/30

Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten – Waltz – “Water” by Bishop Briggs

Judges Comments: Bruno: “Heavenly, exquisite poise. The way your turns are placed on the axis, it is never out of place. You truly shine in the rain.” Carrie Ann: “I agree with Bruno, your turns are spot on. But what is incredible is that there was something that matured in the way you expressed yourself. I feel like everything you did had so much care in it. You had a lift, but this definitely your best dance.” Len: “I wrote elegant, graceful, elegant movement. It had a continuous flow. You Alan, why didn’t you put more waltz in this to make us judges happy, you would have had such a high mark. The further you go from the roots of the dance, the more you lose.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Bruno 10 = 28/30

Joe “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile and Jenna Johnson – Contemporary– “This Year’s Love” by David Gray

Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “I’m impressed, there is a new fluidity that I am seeing. In contemporary it is all about how you shuffle your feet, it was great. There was not a lot of content, but you did not distract. The transitions were just impeccable. Thank you.” Len: “You didn’t do much Joe, but you didn’t do much very well. I enjoyed it, it is what it is.” Bruno: “It was fashionable minimalistic. You provided a very strong wooden frame for Jenna to do her beautiful things.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 7, Bruno 7 = 22/30

Juan Pablo Di Pace and Cheryl Burke – Argentine tango – “Libertango” from Forever Tango

Judges Comments: Len: “I’ve got to stand up here. It was fantastic, I will always remember that Argentine Tango because it was truly fabulous.” Bruno: “I honestly can’t catch my breath, it was extraordinary. It was smoldering and the pure essence of an Argentine Tango. When you built up the end it was the best I have ever seen since the show started. We have never seen anything like that.” Carrie Ann: “You have been our most consistent performer but tonight you outdid yourself in a way that I can not find words to describe. There was so much artistry and passion, you are in a class of your own.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 10, Bruno 10 = 30/30

Evanna Lynch and Keo Motsepe – Contemporary – “Stand Up for Something” by Andra Day

It was fierce and it was loud and I am proud.” Len: “That was powerful and polished performance and I loved it.”

Milo Manheim and Witney Carson – Argentine tango – “Pray for Me” by The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar

Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “It was fascinating watching you get all emotional and watching you switch it and turn it into intensity. I liked the structural element that you had, there were so many shapes. You just brought it, well done.” Len: “You are 17 years old, you came out, you stayed true to yourself, I thoroughly enjoyed it well done.” Bruno: “Stylish, sharp, strong, your lifts were very good, they are hard to control. So clean, Milo always delivers.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Bruno 9 = 27/30

Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess – Jive – “Gimme Some Lovin’” by The Spencer Davis Group (mentored by Len)

Judges Comments: Len: “I had so much fun coming to visit you, honestly, to quote Lou Reed, Its a walk on the wild side. I enjoyed it so much, we worked on those kicks and flicks and by and large, I saw you do them pretty well. For entertainment, you are my man.” Bruno: “Bobby you definitely give it plenty, you were jumping around like a golden cricket. Well done.” Carrie Ann: “It really was improved. Your steps were way more refined, the kicks were really high. The world needs more Bobby in it.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, Bruno 8 = 24/30

Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten – Jive – “Yes” by Merry Clayton (mentored by Bruno)

The center of attention, beautifully done.” Carrie Ann: “Worlds apart from what you first started with. Well done.” Len: “I’m exhausted watching it, the content was great, so clean and so clear.”

Joe “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile and Jenna Johnson – Quickstep – “Check it Out” by Oh the Larceny (mentored by Carrie Ann)

Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “What a difference, you brought it to the dance floor. You have shown up, put it on the dance floor and I am so proud of you.” Len: “The frame was better, it was a clean, clear routine. From start to finish, no mistakes, such an improvement, well done.” Bruno: “Look at him, tall, dark and dancing. That was a proper dance, lots of content, well done.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, Bruno 8 = 24/30

Juan Pablo Di Pace and Cheryl Burke – Salsa – “Tu Sonrisa” by Elvis Crespo (mentored by Bruno)

Judges Comments: Bruno: “I don’t think any salsa could get any hotter or better than this one.” Carrie Ann: “That was like 50 shades of salsa. Well done, two authentic dances today.” Len: “You keep delivering dance after dance. What I love, you had two dances to the correct music. It was great. If you are not in the finals I am going home and picking my walnuts.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 10, Bruno 10 = 30/30

Evanna Lynch and Keo Motsepe – Foxtrot – “Rewrite the Stars” from “The Greatest Showman” (mentored by Len)

Judges Comments: Len: “The improvement in the routine, the technique, the dance was amazing. I enjoyed the dance, it was terrific, well done.” Bruno: “It was like watching another girl from week one. Your performance was so much more focused. You finished the movement, you owned the line, you have done a fantastic job.” Carrie Ann: “When I was watching you dance, I was overwhelmed with emotion. Sometimes there is this X-factor, you were dancing with so much momentum, I was blown away.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 9, Bruno 9 = 28/30

Milo Manheim and Witney Carson – Cha Cha – “Good Feeling” by Austin French (mentored by Carrie Ann)

Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “What I loved is that I saw more confidence in your upper body, you were very confident. There was something that was just a bit wild, you have to bring your A game every time.” Len: “It was full of youthful exuberance. You come out and there is a joy about your dancing. There was a little too much in the legs sometimes, however, I always enjoy watching you.” Bruno: “I liked it. It was a very individual interpretation of the cha cha cha. You hit the beat so sharp, it was fantastic.”

Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Bruno 10 = 28/30
