Carrie Ann says that Kelly might not be their strongest dancer, but she has "a magical quality" that brought Carrie Ann to tears. Len thinks Kelly has turned into a confident dancer, and while this wasn't one of the best, it wasn't the worst either. Bruno reminds her that being endearing isn't going to take her all the way, and she needs to work more on her technique, but he does admire that she tried such difficult moves. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, and Bruno 8.
Mya and Dmitry finally broke through with the first perfect score of the season last week, largely because she finally showed some fire and personality. In their clip package, Dmitry and Mya have to make up for the fact that Mya kind of has no personality by making up some lame thing about having rules written on a whiteboard. Have you noticed that Mya's clip packages are the most contrived? I'm thinking it's because she's kind of a robot with no personality. If you could just make a dancer with Mya's technique and Kelly's personality, that person would win. They have the waltz this week. Their dance is really, really beautiful. I can't think of any other word to describe it than beautiful. And yet... it's kind of boring. Mya's neck is so graceful, and I can't find any flaws in her technique (although they do a lift near the end), but I'm just bored. There's no there there.
Len loved the romance and elegance, and compliments her control. Bruno calls it "love set to music." Carrie Ann thinks that Mya has the potential to get 10s every time, but they need to work on their connection when they're in hold. Agreed. They act like they're complete strangers dancing together. Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, and Bruno 10. Bruno is VERY EXCITED to reveal his score.
