Jane and Tony face the judges. Carrie Ann thinks it was gorgeous and loved Jane's elegant lines. She was disappointed that Jane and Tony did what she considered an illegal lift, but Tony denies that it was. Len says that others have done lifts in a way, and they've let it go. Carrie Ann and Bruno argue the point and Len tells them to shut it. He loved the dance. Bruno says that Jane looked like "the queen of the fairies," and the dance was exquisite. Okay, I just went back and watched the spin Carrie Ann was discussing, and both of Jane's feet were off the ground at one point, but barely. After the break, we see the scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 9, and Bruno 9. Tony says again backstage that there was no lift. Samantha shows the instant replay and it's hard to see in slow motion, so Tony and Jane continue to protest the idea that they did a lift. Ah, who cares. It's not like they were doing flips or anything.
Floyd got low scores last week and ended up in the bottom two. Afterwards, he threw a hissyfit in the interview room and walked off. He explained that he was pissed that the judges thought he was letting Karina down, and that he had BETTER get good scores this week. I don't know if threatening the judges is really the way to go. To cheer Floyd up, they visit an elementary school and Floyd dances with the kids. Did it work? Floyd begins their paso doble holding a cape. I think that the problem with Floyd is that he just has no grace, and that's not something you can really teach; either you're graceful, or you're not. Technically, he gets most of the steps right, though he misses a few, and he has the aggression of the paso doble down pat, but it doesn't all flow together right. Near the end, Floyd does a giant leap in the air that, again, is impressive but not graceful. At the end, he spins Karina around while she is upside down and while she keeps a hand on the floor to avoid it being a lift, it's still kind of scary. Also, he had a hard time getting her into the correct position, so it was awkward. [Second viewing: Floyd never looks very sure of the moves, like he's not sure what comes next. And that last lift/spin was really awkward and ugly.]
