Hey, “Dancing With The Stars” fans. Tonight, September 23, 2019, another performances show did indeed air, but this time, it was coupled with a dreaded elimination, causing one unlucky couple to be sent packing.
All the judges: Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba were, of course, on hand to provide their critiques and scores.
Tonight’s performances kicked off with James Van Der Beek and Emma Slater performing a Cha, Cha, Cha routine.
Afterwards, Len Goodman told James, “It was another solid performance with crisp footwork, but it had too many gimmicks.” Bruno said, “You know how to open big. It was showy like a Broadway cha cha, but I noticed that you missed a step.”
Carrie Ann said, “It was a fantastic way to start the night. I might have seen an unauthorized lift, but I’m not sure. So, I’m not going to hold it against you.” Carrie Ann gave James a 7 score, Len a 6, Bruno a 7 for a total of 20 out of a possible 30 score.
Next, Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Val Chmerkovskiy did a Rumba dance. Afterwards, Bruno told Sailor, “You have everything going for you, but I’m going to give you tough love. You did all the moves, but you need to link them, feel them and express them.”
Carrie Ann said, “You’re lacking consistency, going from sensual to a little giddy, but you move beautifully.” Len said, “Drive through the balls of your foot.” Carrie Ann gave Sailor a 6 score, Len a 6, Bruno a 6 for a total of 18 points.
Ray Lewis and Cheryl Burke hit the dance floor next to deliver a Foxtrot routine. Afterwards, Carrie Ann told Ray, “You’re so enjoyable to watch, but there were tons of mistakes, and you failed to glide through it.”
Len said, “You’re flat-footed, and you had no rise and fall. You went wrong numerous times, but you’re personality is going to get you a better score than you otherwise would have.” Bruno said, “You light up the room, and you sold the routine despite all the errors.” Carrie Ann gave Ray a 5 score, Len a 5, Bruno a 5 for a total of 15 points.
Next, Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber did a Viennese Waltz dance. Afterwards, Len told Ally, “It was a pretty-looking dance, but the rotation kept stopping and starting. You didn’t know what you were doing with your feet. Listen, it was pretty, but technically it wasn’t very good.”
Bruno said, “You can dance, and it had heartfelt moments, but you sometimes skipped through the dance ,and it lacked continuous movement.” Carrie Ann said, “I love when it’s transformative because I can see how much of an effect it’s having on you.” Carrie Ann gave Ally a 7 score, Len a 6, Bruno a 7 for a total of 20 points.
Mary Wilson and Brandon Armstrong hit the stage to do Cha, Cha, Cha routine. Afterwards, Bruno told Mary, “It was simple, effective and nicely presented.” Carrie Ann said, “It had a lot of mistakes, but you never let it show.” Len said, “It was full of freedom, but you need to straighten your legs more.” Carrie Ann gave Mary a 5 score, Len a 5, Bruno a 5 for a total of 15 points.
Next, Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko served up a Paso Doble performance. Afterwards, Carrie Ann said, “I love seeing you come out of your shell, but your shoulders were too high.” Len said, “It lacked a bit of shaping, and you might have gone wrong in places. I also wanted more paso doble elements.”
Bruno said, “I loved it. Nasty suits you. It was convincing, but it could have used more shaping.” Carrie Ann gave Lauren a 6 score, Len a 6, Bruno a 7 for a total of 19 points.
Sean Spicer and Lindsay Arnold arrived on stage to do a Tango routine. Afterwards,Len told Sean, “It was better than last week.” Bruno said, “It looked like a real tango,but perhaps a little militaristic.” Carrie Ann said, “It was sure-footed and much-improved.” Carrie Ann gave Sean a 6 score, Len a 5, Bruno a 5 for a total of 16 points.
Next, Karamo Brown and Jenna Johnson rocked a Quickstep routine. Afterwards, Bruno told Karamo, “You had panache and flair, but you need more body contact.” Carrie Ann said, “That’s what I was hoping for. You are electrifying.”
Len said, “You were flying around, and it was hectic and there was an absolute lack of body contact.” Carrie Ann gave Sean a 7 score, Len a 5, Bruno a 7 for a total of 19 points.
Kate Flannery and Pasha Pashkov delivered a Foxtrot dance. Afterwards, Carrie Ann told Kate, “It was “amazing. I’m blown away by your technique. You remind me of a past contestant Kelly Osbourne. She did really, really well.”
Len said, “I liked the music, the routine and the improvement from last week.” Bruno said, “Mission foxtrot accomplished!” Carrie Ann gave Kate a 7 score, Len a 7, Bruno a 7 for a total of 21 points.
Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson hit the dance floor to deliver a very entertaining Samba routine to Bobby Brown’s hit song, “Every Little Step I Take.”
Afterwards, Len told Kel, “I liked seeing the nice, easy action and all the proper samba steps. There were problems, but you did a very good job.” Bruno said, “It had a naturalness about it. It felt easy, but it needed more bounce.” Carrie Ann said, “You were so smooth, but some of the bounces became thrusts.” Carrie Ann gave Kel a 7 score, Len a 6, Bruno a 7 for a total of 20 points.
Next, Lamar Odom and Peta Murgatroyd did a very awkward-looking Salsa routine. Afterwards,Bruno told Lamar, “You looked more relaxed, and you had more freedom of movement. So, it was a step in the right direction.”
Carrie Ann said, “You were good solo, but you had trouble with the lifts and the holds.” Len said, “Look,it so difficult when your that tall. You did show improvement, but you still have a long way to go.” Carrie Ann gave Lamar a 4 score, Len a 4, Bruno a 4 for a total of 12 points
Last up was Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten to deliver a beautiful Viennese Waltz routine. Afterwards, Carrie Ann told Hannah, “You whisked me away, and it was ridiculously good.” Len said, “I would have liked more natural turns instead of just reverse turns, but you had lovely musicality through your arms. It was the best dance of the night.”
Bruno said, “Now we are in business! Pure American beauty. You finished the lines correctly, and I was transported into a romantic dream.” Carrie Ann gave Hannah a 8 score, Len an 8, Bruno an 8 for a total of 24 points.
After all of that, it was elimination time, and it was revealed that Ray Lewis & Cheryl Burke and Mary Wilson & Brandon Armstrong landed in the bottom two of the voting.
