Fitness model Joseph Baena and partner Daniella Karagach dance a Charleston to “A Star Is Born” from Hercules.

Judges Comments: Carrie Ann: “Great routine. If you are going to do lifts, you have to get the ins and outs right. You have to make her look effortless. Put your shirt back on, it is distracting, LOL. Watch your musicality.” Len: “It was fun, it was great and lively. Maybe a little more swivel. Sometimes I think you overload it with tricks.” Bruno: “I don’t mind the tricks and I like the pecs. You made a couple of mistakes, you missed the timing.” Derek: “The Charleston parts were good, too many lifts, but a great way to start the show.”
