Suzanne Somers Eliminated From ‘Dancing With The Stars’ — Read Our Full Recap
Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani started the night by dancing Jazz after they were told they were in jeopardy. During rehearsal, Suzanne said she didn’t think she could continue in the competition because she is a “lousy” dancer. But the show must go on! Unfortunately, her heel got caught in her dress and she missed a bunch of steps. “You’re easy on the eyes. It’s such a pity you had that hiccup because that was your best dance to date, well done,” Len Goodman said. “You were hitting those lines beautiful, you were confident,” Bruno Tonioli said. “You should be very proud of yourself,” Carrie Ann Inaba said. They got a 28/40.
Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavic danced the Quickstep to “Step In Time” from Mary Poppins. “Robert, I think you know that your steps were not so in time,” a pink-haired Julianne Hough said. “You were so out of step. The details really do matter. It was a difficult song to stay in time with for you,” Carrie Ann said. “It was full of razzle dazzle. You come out, you entertain, well done,” Len said. They got a 24/40, which was “way down” from last week.
Artem Chigvintsey and Patti LaBelle were told they were in jeopardy and then danced the Waltz. Patti has been battling a knee injury but was so graceful and elegant during their dance. “It had warmth. It was so affectionate. Lovely, my darling,” Bruno said. Carrie Ann called her the DWTS fairy Godmother. Len said it was romantic and charming. Julianne said: “It is magical when you dance.” They got a 27/40.
Mark Ballas and Willow Shields danced the Foxtrot to a stunning Alice in Wonderland production. “Ugh, this is hard because that was an epic production, that was thrilling to watch…it’s exciting, however, I felt there were times you lost your footing in the first half,” Carrie Ann said. “You’ve gone from Hunger Games to fun and games,” Len said. “Am I still at Coachella? I’m confused,” Julianne laughed. “You’re becoming a force to be reckoned with,” Bruno said. They got a 34/40!
Chris Soules and Witney Carson danced the Quickstep but Chris injured his calf in rehearsal and didn’t dance his best. “It is a real tough dance and bearing [your injury] in mind, I thought you did fine,” Len said. Julianne said he needs to have more fun. “You were magnificent, but you have to listen to the music,” Bruno said. Carrie Ann said it was his best performance by far. They got a 27/40.
More Dances Inspired By Disney
Sharna Burgess and Noah Galloway danced the Foxtrot to a song from Aladdin. “The thing that I love so much is you have a clear and assertive direction…You know your moves, you know what you are doing,” Julianne said. “Looking at you makes us all believe in magic,” Bruno said. “You’ve captured the hearts of everyone here,” Carrie Ann said. “You had great lines, you had musicality. Overall, you’re great,” Len said. They got a 28/40.
Allison Holker and Riker Lynch danced a super intense Paso Doble. “A super production for a super talent,” Bruno screamed. “That was a beast of a Paso, you slayed it! You killed it! Best, best ever!” Carrie Ann said. Julianne said it was an amazing combination of “technique, artistry and showmanship.” They got a 38 out of 40 — including 2 tens!
Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy danced the Samba to “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid. “That was sickly creative. It was out of this world and odd and weird but it turned me on,” Carrie Ann said. Len said she is a fantastic dancer. “To me, that was the best dance of the night,” Julianne said. They got a 39/40 as her mom Demi Moore and dad Bruce Willis watched from the audience!
Finally, Derek Hough and Nastia Liukin danced to “Love Is An Open Door” from Frozen. “That was like a warm hug on a cold evening,” Len said. “You guys could do that on Broadway right now,” Julianne said. Bruno said it was practically perfect. They got a 38 out of 40!
Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to Suzanne Somers and Tony.
