Judges' Comments:

Len: It was a bit of a walk on the wild side. I like your enthusiasm, but I think you should have spent more of your time getting the raunchiness of it than all that time fiddling about with the back flip. The lambada is a dance that I want to see raunchy.

Bruno: You put everything you have. You're an actor, this is a character, and the character of this is Gilles Marini. You have to translate a feel through your body. You've got to put a bit of foreplay in -- easy, darling, easy -- and then build it up.

Carrie Ann: You have to chill out. You're trying too hard. You're going way over the top and it's really hard to watch. It turned me off to you.

Judges' Comments:

Carrie Ann: I'm kind of on the fence. I thought it was beautiful, and I appreciate you went for the difficulty, but I saw more a struggle with the movements that last week.

Len: I thought it had a most beautiful, lyrical movement. I would've liked a little bit more romance between the two of you.

Bruno: I'm very happy you've found your basic instinct. At times it was like watching Sharon Stone, but once you go into your swimming mode, the edifice collapses. Stick with Sharon, she knows what to do with a man.

Judges' Comments:

Bruno: You brought a 1920s Hollywood flapper back to life! I felt I was in the ‘20s – you have the role 110 percent.

Carrie Ann: That is your dance – you need to take that on the road. Everything was fantastic. Breakthrough!

Len: The Charleston’s all about the three Es—energy, excitement, entertainment. You tipped all the boxes.

Judges' Comments:

Bruno: You should have a roll in the hay more often, your confidence was much improved.

Carrie Ann: Thank you, finally. The confidence was there, you were connected with Lacey. It was the most exciting two-step so far.

Len: Lacey, I thought it was great choreography, I loved the progression around the room. What I loved, Mark, is you aren't just hanging there, helping Lacey with all those spins.

Judges' Comments:

Carrie Ann: Watching you dance is like watching a little birdie get their wings and learn to fly. You see the joy, it makes me get so excited.

Len: You came out with confidence and you performed the dance. I would've liked a little more swivel during the Charleston section, but overall very well done.

Bruno: I love Liza Minelli, I love Joel Gray, great tribute to them. I love the Fosse touches. You should be happy.

Judges' Comments:

Len: First, I know what I want for tomorrow night's encore. Derek, you never disappoint -- whatever dance it is, you come up with fantastic choreography. A little repetitious at times, but great job.

Bruno: Folks, don't try this at home without taking the necessary precautions. When animals get physical! Bursting with sexual energy -- I have enough now for the next six months

Carrie Ann: All I can is, I hope that the children were in bed. [Tom interjects: I'll bet some of the adults are now.] It worked, the lambada is all about passionate sex, fueled by the crotch area, and that was fueled by the crotch area.
Chuck Liddell and Anna Trebunskaya

Judges' Comments:

Len: The lift was very good and you bring entertainment to the show. There’s a novelty value about you which is good. But it’s going to come to this is a dance competition and your quality of dance isn’t there.

Bruno: You don’t so much dance as raided the two-step. You bring carnage and mayhem to everything you do and yet it still managed to look like a two-step.

Carrie Ann: I could see you in a bar doing the two-step! They say you should do a dance that suits you, and this suits you


Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson

Dance: Charleston

824

Judges' Comments:

Bruno: This really shows a showman in his element. I liked the theatrical touches, a little bit of ragtime. It was like watching a theater piece. You've got to be a bit sharper on the kicks.

Carrie Ann: You played to your strengths. The way you move together as a team is great, but because you move so well together I saw when you stumbled.

Len: You look good, you dance good, and watching you does you good. It was really well done.
