Leading off this important dance round is:
Mary Lou Retton and Sasha Farber – Cha Cha – “Hot Stuff” by Donna Summer
Judges Comments: Len: “I thought last night was great and tonight was no different. It was clean, no messing about, well done.” Bruno: “That is how you deliver under pressure, you did it right.” Carrie Ann: “You definitely dance like a champ, I like that you came out with a solo.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 7, Bruno 7 = 21/30
Danelle Umstead and Artem Chigvintsev – Foxtrot – “Strong Ones” by Armin van Buuren featuring Cimo Fränkel
Judges Comments: Bruno: “You really tried to use the floor more, there was a slight incident but it came out of good intentions.“ Carrie Ann: “Last night you inspired us all but tonight you impressed me. The way you handled, I saw you get lost but when you came back the contact was better.” Len: “I got to say of all of our celebrities, yours is the greatest challenge. It is a total inspiration to America the way you came out and danced.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 6, Len 6, Bruno 6 = 18/30
Nikki Glaser and Gleb Savchenko – Salsa – “Tres Deseos” by Gloria Estefan
Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “I liked the overall presentation, you looked more comfortable. You need to watch your arms a little bit more, they looked floppy.” Len: “Well last night you sort of let the dance control you, tonight you were in control. You had more verve, maybe it was the music, this track really suited you.” Bruno: “Your attitude was much better but you have to watch your hip, follow through.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 6, Len 6, Bruno 6 = 18/30
Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten – Jive – “Shake the Room” by Gamu
Judges Comments: Len: “I was amazed that you were here in jeopardy because you danced fantastic last night. You are a terrific dancer, the pair of you deserve to come back and if you don’t I am going to show me bum in the supermarket.” Bruno: “I totally agree with Len. This girl gave a fantastic performance last night and tonight she was focused purely on the Jive, fantastic performance and you deserve to be here.” Carrie Ann: “I am more impressed with you tonight because this was harder for you.” Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 8, Bruno 8 = 23/30
Nancy McKeon and Val Chmerkovskiy – Quickstep – “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina & The Waves
Judges Comments: Bruno: “Bright, lovely and vivacious. You were not so tense, you were spinning like a car wash and I loved it. You went for it, and you went for it well.” Carrie Ann: “The Quick Step is one of the hardest dances to do, and I thought what was really impressive is that you upped the game. I loved watching you grow like this.” Len: “Val, you looked at me and I looked at you. I was thinking the one problem last night, was the gap between the two of you, tonight you were so together. “ Judges Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Len 7, Bruno 7 = 21/30
