Warren and Kym begin their jive. Warren looks kind of tentative at first; I think he's anticipating his solo turn. And when it comes, his footwork is awesome as always! He does one kick that's higher than I've seen most of the female contestants do this season. He still looks a little tentative when they go back into hold, but he clearly loved having the crowd's attention. They reward him with another standing ovation.
Len tells Warren that his dancing is joyful, but his feet were indescribably bad. Bruno releases "a contagious sense of fun" and he thinks you can't dissect his technique. Carrie Ann thinks Warren's comfy shoes (which look like sneakers) made them stare at his feet, and she says that despite his footwear, he made his footwork work somehow. Backstage, Samantha asks how Warren felt about the fast pace of the jive. Warren says that once he gets going, he can't stop. Scores: Carrie Ann 9, Len 8, and Bruno 9. Kym is kind of surprised by how high the scores ended up. Me too! After those comments, I was thinking more like 24.
The standings are:
Brooke and Derek: 28 + 27 = 55
Warren and Kym: 28 + 26 = 54
Lance and Lacey: 26 + 24 = 50
Cody and Edyta: 24 + 24 = 48
Maurice and Cheryl: 24 + 24 = 48
