Bruno tells Melissa that she lost her steps quite a few times and then lost the character as a result. Carrie Ann disagrees, and thought Melissa nailed the character even if she did stumble. Len thought it lacked seduction, but he liked the music and how they coped with the difficult choreography. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, and Bruno 7. The audience boos, but Melissa and Mark are pleased; it's clearly been a rough week for them and they're happy to have it behind them.
Kelly and Louis have the paso doble this week, and Louis explains to her that she is the cape in this dance. Kelly is disappointed; she thought she would get to be either the bull or the matador, at least. Also, Kelly can't stop getting the giggles, but the audience loves her wisecracks -- there's a big laugh every time she makes one. Plus, they are dancing to "Crazy Train" this week, and Kelly is worried about dancing to her dad's song. It's awesome, but they've really slowed the song down for this dance. Like A LOT. And the guy singing it is no Ozzy, but then again, Ozzy is no Ozzy any more. Kelly's face is a little too aloof during their routine. Her footwork is great, but she looks regal instead of aggressive or assertive. I really think I was just thrown off by the tempo.
Carrie Ann compliments Kelly and Louis for how much they look like Ozzy and Sharon, and advises Kelly to stay in character. Len thought it was an improvement in terms of getting into character, but she needs to keep working on it. Bruno noticed that she was nervous, but when she overcomes her nerves, it's really great. Scores: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, and Bruno 8. It's their best score yet, which seems to be a theme tonight.
The final couple is Joanna and Maks (subbing for Derek). So Wednesday, Derek was off in rehearsal on, and Joanna noticed. So on Thursday, Derek stayed home and Maks came in to help out. He didn't know at the time if Derek would be back for the performance or not, but by Friday they kind of figured out that Maks would be dancing on Monday. They look good together, though. And I bet the judges will take it easy on them. They start their tango with some business with a lamp post and a jacket, which whatever. Just as I was about to say that things look very smooth, although they're missing some of the flicks and kicks, someone screws up and Maks nearly falls. They both recover nicely and continue, and they look great together, but the choreography seems a bit too easy. It's understandable, though.
