The all-stars had creative control for ‘iconic dance week’, two huge bombshells were revealed, and Bristol & Mark had a huge fight in the Oct. 8 competition! Keep reading for all the drama!
This week, the all-star celebs were the creative directors and Len challenged them to make the most creative, eye-popping dances ever!
The first of two bombshell announcements was that next week, superstar and dance professional Paula Abdul will be a guest judge!
The second surprise was that the all-stars are picking the dance styles for each other next week! Strategy will play a huge factor! Can’t wait for next week!
But first, let’s get to the dancing!
Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya danced the Cha Cha for a score of 24. Len said it was perfectly balanced and “terrific.” Carrie Ann said it was “tight and precise.”
“50 Shades Of Gilles”
Gilles Marini and Peta danced the tango for a score of 25.5. Gilles actually flew over the audience in the beginning of their dance! Bruno said “Gilles can fly in and out of any bedroom he chooses. 50 Shades of Gilles!”
Melissa Rycroft and partner Tony Dovolani danced the Samba for the highest score of the season – 27! Carrie Ann said it was “steller” and Bruno raved Melissa did the dance like a star!
Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff danced the foxtrot to Gilles’ previous routine for a total score of 25.5. Bruno said it was sensual, classic and exquisite!
Kelly Monaco and partner Val Chmerkovskiy danced his brother Maks’s paso doble for a high score of 27! Val started the routine shirtless, which was a nice Bruno raved he was “tingling with pleasure.” Carrie Ann said they are the couple to watch!
Kirstie Alley and Maksim danced the Cha Cha Cha for a score of 24. Maks made a grand entrance as Mick Jagger in a mini cooper, crazy wig and super tight pants! Bruno said he “nearly burst a gut!”
Last week’s top scorers Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel danced the paso doble for a score of 25.5. Bruno said “maximum fire power! At times, you look like you are leading Louis!” Len said it was fabulous!
Emmitt Smith and partner Cheryl Burke danced the paso doble for a total score of 25. Bruno said “the raging bull is back!”
Helio Castroneves and partner Chelsie Hightower danced the quickstep for a total score of 25.5. Len said the dance was top notch! Bruno said it started “absolutely brilliant” but then it collapsed a little bit after he stepped on her dress.
Bristol and Mark’s Blowup
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas started the week on a dramatic note as they got into a huge, tearful blowup! Bristol accused Mark of being mad he didn’t have a partner like Sabrina or Shawn. Mark said he’s been on her side the entire time and always stuck up for her.
Bristol said, “I feel like you want to go home” after Mark missed a practice earlier in the week. Bristol walked off in tears!
But tonight, they were all smiles. They danced the paso doble for a score of 22.5, their highest score so far. Len said it was their best dance yet. Bruno said “Check Mate Bristol! The ice queen with a killer streak! Get that aggression out, it works!”
The Best Of The Night
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough danced the quickstep for a score of 26.5. Bruno and Carie Ann gave them a standing ovation! Bruno said, “Shawn and Derek – the incredibles! Spectacular, unforgettable, one of the best, if not the best, dance I’ve seen in 15 seasons! I’m never going to forget this!” The judges had to take points off for “breaking the rules” aka being AMAZING!
