Judges Comments: Len: “I was intrigued to see how you would do with that dance and you coped very well. But, there are a few dances that I know I am going to get. With you, I don’t get excited, I want to get excited.” Bruno: “What a show, what a dance, star quality. Those legs are a weapon to be reckoned with. Move those hops further through the body, you have to work on details.” Carrie Ann: “You are stunning, what I loved is that it was clean and sharp. What is lacking is your posture, well done.”

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

Popstar and dancer JoJo Siwa and pro-Jenna Johnson dancing the Argentine Tango to “Baby One More Time” by Britney Spear.

Judges Comments: Len: “It was an extremely well-crafted routine. I liked the lift because they were a part of the flow of the dance. It looked more like a ballroom tango, not an Argentine tango. But you are always right on point.” Bruno: “You go straight for the bullseye every time, it is the right side of sexy and you work the camera like no other. I think you actually missed a step in the middle, fabulous though.” Carrie Ann: “You are like liquid sunshine, when you dance there is something powerful about you. You lead with clarity and intention.”
