For the first time, the judges are giving two scores - technique and performance. The dances this week are the rumba and the tango. The show wasn't too exciting, and I was really tired, so this recap will reflect that. Sorry.
Erin and Maks - Tango
Scores: Technical: 6/6/6 = 18 Performance: 7/7/7 = 21 (39)
Erin hurt her back but danced through it. Part of the way through it her heel got caught in her shoe strap. She danced well despite all that and looked great.
Evan and Anna - Tango Scores: Technical: 9/8/9 = 26 Performance: 9/8/9 = 26 (52)
Anna made sure Evan worked on the areas Len said he needed to improve. Their dance was
Niecy and Louis - Rumba Scores: Technical: 6/6/6 = 18 Performance: 6/6/6 = 18 (36)
Louis told Niecy that the rumba is romantic and spiritual.
Aiden and Edyta - Rumba Scores: Technical: 5/5/5 = 15 Performance: 6/6/6 = 18 (33)
Bless his heart, Aiden just can't loosen up and perform. And he's an actor! I haven't seen him on that soap opera he's on and don't know how he is on there, but he needs to let go and enjoy dancing.
Nicole and Derek - Rumba Scores: Technical: 9/8/8 = 25 Performance: 8/8/9 = 25 (50)
Wow! This was a rumba! Beautiful!
Jake and Chelsie - Tango Scores: Technical: 6/7/6 = 19 Performance: 7/6/6 = 19 (38)
Jake was determined not to be in the bottom two again and worked hard. It showed because he improved. He's still not there yet though. The judges criticized his technique but said parts of it were good. He tripped during the dance and got off kilter after that.
Kate and Tony - Tango Scores: Technical: 4/5/5 = 14 Performance: 6/6/6 = 18 (32)
Kate said the criticism from the judges was right because she is a beginning dancer. Saying "dancer" is quite a stretch. Poor Tony. I don't know how he can stand it. She whines and cries and complains. I do not like her. Last week she was a zombie. This week an oaf. Bruno said at times he actually thought she was dancing. If she has sex like she dances, I'll bet she's one of those women who just lies there and doesn't move. There's an expression for that, so I'll just say she's a dead dance.
Chad and Cheryl - Rumba Scores: Technical: 7/6/8 = 21 Performance: 8/7/8 =23 (44)
Chad improved this week and danced well. He's a big flirt and is having fun.
Pamela and Damian - Rumba Scores: Technical: 7/8/8 = 23 Performance: 8/7/9 = 24 (47)
Pamela acts as if she's having sex with whomever she's around. Maybe she is. The judges said it was her best dance so far.
