JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson delivered an Argentine Tango dance to “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears. Afterwards, Len said, “It was a well-crafted routine with good lifts, but it was a little too staccato ,and it didn’t have quite enough flow.”
Bruno said, “You know how to hit it. You go straight for the bullseye every time, and you know how to work the camera. However, you missed a step in the middle.” Carrie Ann said, “Yeah, I think you might have missed a step, but you’re like liquid sunshine, and you lead with clarity and intentions.”
Carrie Ann gave JoJo and Jenna an 8, Len an 8, Bruno an 8 for a total of 24 points.

Melanie C and Gleb Savchenko served up a Tango dance to “Toxic” by Britney Spears. Afterwards, Bruno said, “You were flying high on that tango.”
Carrie Ann said, “It was filled with content, and you had great lines and legs, but it felt a little forced and tense.” Len said, “I liked it better at the end because it took a while to get cracking, but it went in and out of hold too many times.”
Carrie Ann gave Melanie C and Gleb a 7, Len a 7, Bruno an 8 for a total of 22 points.
Jimmie Allen and Emma Slater danced a Salsa routine to “Outrageous” by Britney Spears. Afterwards, Carrie Ann said, “You had a wonky fist, and the lifts were a little rocky.”

Carrie Ann gave Jimmie and Emma a 6, Len a 6, Bruno an 8 for a total of 20 points.
Olivia Jade and Val Chmerkovskiy performed a Tango dance to “Hold It Against Me” by Britney Spears. Afterwards, Len said, “That was a proper tango with plenty of staccato and attack. This is what I want from choreographers.”

Carrie Ann gave Olivia and Val an 8, Len an 8, Bruno an 8 for a total of 24 points.
Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke did a Jazz number to “Gimme More” by Britney Spears. They danced separately from home due to catching COVID.

Carrie Ann said, “I appreciate the effort, but it didn’t quite compare to what we’ve seen in the ballroom already so far.” Len said, “I wasn’t sure how it would work, but you were clear and tight together. Considering the circumstances, you were terrific.”
Carrie Ann gave Cody and Cheryl a 6, Len a 6, Bruno a 6 for a total of 18 points.
Suni Lee and Sasha Farber delivered a Foxtrot routine to “I’m a Slave 4 U” by Britney Spears. Afterwards, Carrie Ann said, “I appreciate you stepping out of your comfort zone, but you looked a little uncomfortable in the sensual moments.”
Len said, “It didn’t feel like the dance captured the Foxtrot. It was too steamy and not romantic enough.” Bruno said, “I don’t mind steamy, and I liked that you played with the character.”
Carrie Ann gave Suni and Sasha a 7, Len a 7, Bruno a 7 for a total of 21 points.
Matt James and Lindsay Arnold served up a Tango dance to “Scream and Shout” by Britney Spears. Afterwards, Len said, “I appreciate that it was a full-on routine, but you had problems with your footwork at one point.”
