Bruno tells her that she looks gorgeous and her footwork was better than ever. Carrie Ann agrees and says that everything worked well and she was light on her feet. Len agrees with the others and advises her to lift her rib cage up. She retorts, "I got a lot to lift, Len!" Niecy is thrilled with those great comments. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 8, and Bruno 8. Niecy starts screaming at the 9 and then starts crying and screams, "I can dance! Ahhhh!"
Last week, Evan and Anna did not do as well as they've done throughout the competition. Evan apologizes to Anna for their slide, and asks her to push him harder this week in rehearsal for their tango. Their rehearsal footage looks amazing, so I can't wait to watch the actual routine. I want Anna to teach me how to dance. She's hardcore. By the way, why are they doing the Argentine tango? I have given up trying to figure out who does which dances this season. It seems totally random. Their routine by the way? Wow. A real departure for Evan. It's sharp and almost violent, and I dig it. He has some weird lines, but the character of it is great and he does not let up. Great choreography from Anna too.
Carrie Ann tells Evan that he has the eye of the tiger, because he was so focused and sexy. Len says that he's going to dust off his unused ten paddle for them because it was fantastic. Bruno tells Evan he danced like an alpha male, and was everything a girl would want. Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 10, Bruno 10. The first perfect score of the season and well deserved. Anna is so cute, jumping around and smiling.
Now it's time for the Cha Cha Challenge, and the first team to go is Team Gaga. It's Pam and Damian, Chad and Cheryl, and Nicole and Derek. The ytalk about how they do thirty seconds together at the top, then solos, then another group segment at the end. They all want Pam to go first, and Nicole to go last. Looks like Derek is handling most of the choreography. Everyone but Nicole has struggles, so let's see how it goes as they dance to "Telephone." Their group segment is good. I couldn't figure out why they put Nicole and Derek on the left side instead of in the center until I realized it's because they're in front of the judges' table. Pam's solo has flashes of goodness, but she seems to screw up a few steps and her splits are just... not good. I don't know why they put those in the routine. Chad and Cheryl do great, although there's a lot of Chad standing there while Cheryl dances around. Nicole and Derek's portion is good but Nicole is kind of hunched over and making those weird aggressive faces that I didn't like last week. She does a split that only emphasizes how bad Pam's were. Oops. The final group segment is pretty good but the goddamn camera angles keep switching and I feel like we missed something good. It's not as good as last season's group number.
