About halfway through, Brandy's arms get a bit out of control, and they end with a stupid "run around the floor and get the audience to clap" thing which is a cheap waste of potential dancing time. I thought it was good, but of all the routines, showed that they just thought it up moments ago the most.
Bruno calls it fabulous, Carrie Ann thought they took too long to get into the dance and thus had less content. Maks tells her to relax and not worry about it. Whoa. Don't argue with the judges. MEOW! Len loved the flair and rhythm and manages to calm everyone down. Tom has to intercede and ask what Len thinks of Carrie Ann's judgment and Len admits that he thinks she's right. I agree; I understand that you have to try to fit your pre-existing moves into the song, which can be tough, but they wasted a good eight bars at the opening and another four at the end, whereas someone like Kyle danced from start to finish, and it was a jive no less.
Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, and Bruno 10. And then Maks has to open his big trap and talk about how overlooked the pros are and how they don't get enough credit, and he's probably right but WAAAAAAAAAHHH! He's got a national television audience that he never would have had without this show, and it's called Dancing With the Stars, so we know where the focus is. Do your job and shut your trap. That little diatribe would have a lot more weight if it were coming on a week where he got better scores; instead it just comes off as sour grapes.
Here are the final scores:
Jennifer and Derek: 27 + 30 = 57
Brandy and Maks: 29 + 28 = 57
Kyle and Lacey: 27 + 29 = 56
Kurt and Anna: 24 + 24 = 48
Bristol and Mark: 24 + 23 = 47
