Cheryl and William are up first. Cheryl plans to do a Latin flavor, which is smart, but then add in lifts. William is really worried about the lifts, because they're taking a lot of risks and he's exhausted. But he knows that he has to give it all he has in this last dance. So how does it all work out? Well, the lifts were all good to great, and the rest of the dancing wasn't too bad either. Cheryl did a great job combining the tango, the salsa, the cha cha, and I think I saw some samba in there. And she was sure to add in a long segment of William shaking his buns, because she's no dummy. My only complaint was that William didn't look like he was having any fun! It was a fun, action-packed routine, and he looked worried the whole time. Lighten up and just enjoy your last dance, dude!
Judges? Len says that he liked it all, from the lifts to the rhythm changes, but he thought it was too predictable. Carrie Ann argues with him, but Len says he didn't want a salsa with lifts. Bruno thought it was sinful but ever so good. Carrie Ann can't even talk and weirdly starts doing the robot. She thought they broke ground, but Len argues that it was just a salsa with lifts. As Tom goes to commercial, Len and Carrie Ann are still arguing. Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 9, and Bruno 10. They seem pleased and they knew they weren't getting a 10 from a Len anyway.
So how about Mark and Katherine's freestyle? Mark thinks Katherine is really versatile, and they should take advantage of that in their freestyle. I actually think the freestyle might be Katherine's downfall, as I think her worst dances have been when she "let loose" and just danced. They start out with Katherine singing and I hope this isn't taking away from her dancing time. Well, their routine was jam-packed with content, that's for sure. The problem was that Katherine looked a little awkward at times, and seemed behind the beat a few times near the end. And this resulted in some awkward transitions into and out of the lifts. But it had a ton of energy and it was different - sort of a combo of the jive, the quickstep, the Lindy hop and I don't know what else. And Katherine danced her little heart out.
