Dancing with Stars opened with dancing this week, but the main event was a performance from Michael Bublé. As the contestants geared up to perform to Michael Bublé’s discography, Tyra announced that the Grammy award-winning singer would be a guest judge on the show.
Shangela and Gleb
After high scores and great feedback from the judges, Shangela and Gleb wanted to continue to impress. Dancing the tango with a movie star presence, this duo sparkled. Len loved the routine, calling it “so full of content” and “the best dance I’ve seen this season.” Michael said it was the “best day of his life” and thanked them for bringing the song to life in a beautiful way.
Total Score: 45/50
Trevor and Emma
Tapping into Trevor’s acting skills, this duo left their punk attitudes behind and moved on to the foxtrot. Michael called this dance “charming and free,” and Derek loved the leading man vibes of this performance despite a few corrections on framing. Bruno agreed, calling it Trevor’s “best performance yet.”
Total Score: 42/50
Gabby and Val
Gabby and Val used Michael Bublé’s music to fuel their rumba this week. After a lesson in getting up close and personal from Jenna Johnson, these two impressed Derek with their detail. Bruno said he was “entrapped” by the dance and its elegance.
Total Score: 46/50
Vinny and Koko
Even though they came in at the bottom last week, Vinny and Koko weren’t giving up. They danced the cha cha for their Bublé performance. Vinny brought the energy, but Vinny’s timing was still an issue for Bruno, but Carrie Ann and Michael reminded him how much the audience loves him.
Total Score: 36/50
Jordin and Brandon
Performing a foxtrot that honors her grandfather, Jordin started working on her frame again. Gliding across the ballroom in glam, this pair got so much praise from Carrie Ann. Len complimented their musicality as well.
Total Score: 43/50
Charli and Mark
Returning to ballroom dance with a foxtrot, Charli and Mark set out to impress Len this week. They definitely succeeded. Len complimented the swing and movement of their foxtrot. Michael called it “effortless, mesmerizing, and expressively erotic” and Derek called it “the best quality foxtrot [he has] ever seen on this show.”
Total Score: 50/50
Heidi and Artem
After being saved by the judges last week, Heidi and Artem wanted to amp up their competitive edge with a challenging dance, the samba. Derek called their dance a “content feast,” and Michael was happy to see a beautiful and obviously fun dance.
Total Score: 46/50
Wayne and Witney
After a perfect score, Wayne and Witney didn’t want to slow down. They quickstepped for Michale Bublé night, but only after a late start with rehearsal due to Wayne being sick. The end of their performance was a little messy, but Bruno still complimented the quality of Wayne’s dancing. Carrie Ann wanted to see them being more in sync, but Len said despite mistakes they still pulled it off.
Total Score: 44/50
Jessie and Alan
Jessie and Alan took home prom king and queen, but the competition isn’t over. Moving into a fast and loose salsa with plenty of tricks to wow the audience and the judges, Jessie and Alan earned plenty of compliments from Bruno who noticed some samba in their moves as well. Carrie Ann wanted to see more fluidity, though.
Total Score: 41/50
Daniel and Britt
The dance marathon wasn’t Daniel’s best moment, but the passion was back this week as he and Britt danced the foxtrot. Michael Bublé said he has a “man crush” on Daniel and called him his “new hero.” Derek called the dance fantastic and complimented Daniels emotion.
Total Score: 43/50
After all of the votes and scores were tallied, Jessie and Alan and Trevor and Emma were in the bottom two. The judges were left to pick a couple to save. Derek voted to save Jessie and Alan, but Bruno and Carrie Ann chose to save Trevor and Emma, leaving the final decision to Len. Len chose to save Trevor and Emma.
