Judges? Len though there was just enough content and technique, and he expects more from Shawn. Bruno thinks Len is nutso, and it was perfect. Carrie Ann agrees with Bruno, because Shawn and Derek's synchronicity was amazing. Scores: Carrie Ann 8.5, Len 8, and Bruno 8.5. Derek admits backstage that he's barely keeping up with Shawn, so I'm not sure how much more content he could put in.
Kelly was really nervous about returning to the ballroom but she admits that she danced without counting the steps and it felt really good. While rehearsing their quickstep, Val keeps telling Kelly to stop bouncing her boobs, like she can control that. She makes him wear a bra with water balloons in it so he can see what it feels like, and then he understands. Those two are doing it, right? It seems like they're doing it. Anyway, their quickstep. I think the costuming did Kelly a disservice this week because her footwork was great but you couldn't see it at times due to her tea-length princess gown. Her neck and upper body looked fantastic. As with Helio, I don't remember her being this good of a dancer.
Judges? Bruno thought it was elegant, although she lost frame a little bit in hold. Carrie Ann thinks Kelly is confident in hold, but she needs to extend her lines and dance bigger. Len liked the parts that were out of hold. So the judges are sending mixed messages. Scores: Carrie Ann 7.5, Len 7, and Bruno 7.5. Hmm. I thought it was a little better than that.
Gilles pulled his hamstring before last week's routine and the doctor told him that he should rest it for a week or two. Ha ha, not. You don't see any sign of his injury during his routine. His kicks are so high that they're practically Rockette style. They're almost too high, and he's kind of hunched over. I don't know, there's something weird about his jive. But he performs the hell out of it. He seems too slinky or something? Maybe I'm just too used to seeing everyone's '50s jives, so a different style throws me off.
Judges? Carrie Ann thought his kicks and flicks were the best of the night. Len thought it was fast and dynamic, and Gilles is consistently good. Bruno yells something about cleavage. Who knows what he's talking about? No one. Scores: Carrie Ann 8.5, Len 8.5 and Bruno 8.5. Gilles looks like he's in a lot of pain.
I hope Bristol goes home, but I could see it being Kristie too. I'm surprised to see Kelly down there at the bottom of the leaderboard but I guess that shows you how stiff the competition is this season. Here are your scores:
