Cheryl and Emmitt have the bolero, and Cheryl hasn't ever done training in the bolero, so she brings in some other pros to show them some moves. Emmitt jokes that the other stars are like finely-tuned Cadillacs and he's like an F-150 truck trying to be smooth. Well, I don't know anything about the bolero, but that seemed nice to me. It was sort of a cross between a rumba and...well, it looked a lot like a rumba. Emmitt seemed more focused than he has in past weeks and didn't just skate by on charm; he had to do actual dancing at times. I still think his hip flexibility isn't what it was on his original season but that's probably aging and can't really be helped.
Judges? Carrie Ann loved how dramatic, sexy, and graceful it was. Len points out that the bolero is slow so mistakes can be magnified, but Emmitt danced it cleanly. Paula calls Emmitt a "sexy beast" and loved that he went by the "less is more" philosophy. Bruno thought the desire was tangible, and Emmitt had smooth and yet masculine lines. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Paula 9, and Bruno 9. Those might be a little high. The judges are getting 9 happy.
Gilles and Peta fell down the leaderboard last week and this week, they have Bollywood. Peta knows nothing about it, so she brings in an expert. As they continue rehearsing, Peta is freaking out because the dance is not coming together, and Gilles comments that they don't know what they're doing. Like the pros, I don't know much about this style of dance since they don't usually do it on this show. The routine looks very energetic, but Gilles slips in and out of proper form to my eye. Sometimes he looks great, but sometimes his arms and legs just aren't right. He looks more Broadway than Bollywood.
Judges? Len admits that he knows nothing about Bollywood, but he liked this, especially how much Gilles committed to the cause. Paula does a not half bad Bruno impersonation and I can't hear what she says but it seems to be mostly about how sexy Gilles is. She's not wrong. Bruno thinks Gilles is a superstar. Carrie Ann thinks Aladdin has nothing on Gilles. Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 9.5, Paula 10, and Bruno 10. Wow, that was overscored. No way was it that much better than Shawn's, I didn't think.
