Debi and Maks didn't get great scores last week, but this week, they have the tango. Debi thinks it will work out great, because she and Maks have a very mercurial relationship. In rehearsal, Maks really yells at her, right in her face, and Debi melts down and tells him that he can't talk to her that way. Maks feels bad and apologizes, and hopefully they come to some sort of understanding.
How does all this agita translate to their tango? They kind of recreate the tango from Moulin Rouge, to that version of "Roxanne," which the band totally kills, in a bad way. There are a few stuttery/missed steps. I can tell it was choreographed beautifully (not sure if Maks did it all original or if it was lifted from the movie), but Debi is too much in her head, especially after the first little blip. She kind of goes in and out of character, because she's thinking about what she needs to do next with her feet. So it's good, but it could have been great.
Baz likes how they played out the love/hate relationship. Carrie Ann thinks Debi brought her dramatic antics worked well on the dance floor, and her form and posture were beautiful. Bruno wants her to keep being assertive, because it could be even better if she stops getting shaky in between movements. Scores: Carrie Ann 7, Baz 7 and Bruno 7 for a total of 21. I didn't think they'd score that high. I don't think Debi did either!
Louie and Chelsie have the jive this week. Louie discusses how he and Chelsie are the youngest couple on the show and hope to bring their energy to the show. Their jive starts out with high energy, with Louie doing a twisting flip over Chelsie's head onto the floor. They're lucky Len's not there, because he would hate it. Louie's footwork looks great in the first half of the dance. About halfway through, he seems less sure of the steps. He doesn't really miss any, but he seems to be thinking about it more. He's got a lot of natural grace and athleticism, though.
Carrie Ann loves the energy and the smile, but he needs to listen to the music more and stay with it more. Bruno thinks Louie can do more than he's doing, because he's trying to get by on being cute and cool. The audience doesn't like Bruno's comments. Baz thought they made a cute couple and had a lot of joy. Scores: Carrie Ann 6, Baz 7 and Bruno 6 for a total of 19. The audience yells their disapproval.
