Judges? Paula claims there was improvement and fun. Where? I didn't see any of either thing. Bruno claims she hit all of the steps quickly and was focused. Carrie Ann makes Bristol give her a high five and claims that Bristol is blossoming. Len thought Bristol tried really hard even if it was safe sometimes. That was horseshit. I have to believe that they are trying to avoid people voting as part of a backlash against the judges? That's all I can think of. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, Paula 8, and Bruno 8. WHAT? That is ridiculous. If I were Kirstie, I would cut someone.
Sabrina and Louis have disco, and they decide to avoid the Saturday Night Fever thing because it's been done, and instead are going for a Studio 54 vibe. Sabrina looks like Madonna on "The Girlie Show" tour (which I saw! In Madison Square Garden!). Anyway, their routine is fantastic. Fun, lively, and jam-packed with content. Maybe a little too packed - at times they seem to be moving from eight-count to eight-count without a lot of connection in between. The stunts are great but Sabrina seems a little too heavy for Louis; he struggles on the dismounts more than once. Those are nitpicks; it's a joy to watch.
Judges? Bruno calls it "vibrant and alive" but claims that Sabrina lost timing a few times. Carrie Ann disagrees, although she did see a problem with one dismount. Len was transported back to 1978 and he loved everything about it. Paula thought the homage was spot-on and compliments Louis's choreography. I notice Paula is the only one who mentions choreography; I wish the judges talked about that more, because it has so much to do with how the stars look. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Paula 8.5, and Bruno 9. Those are good scores. I think the other dancers are jealous that Louis got disco because they're all standing behind them doing disco moves. They are super fun.
