Judges' Comments:

Bruno: You've done exactly as I asked you to do. You switched on the magnetism, you're wearing character. It's like watching Robert Pattinson tangoing in "Twilight."

Carrie Ann: [Aaron approaches Carrie Ann and kisses her cheeks] Excellent, that's the way to do it. It was grounded, it was dramatic, you were centered.

Len: The last couple of weeks you've been like someone lost in the wilderness, like a boy who's lost his daddy. You've come back to me! I really enjoyed it.

Judges' Comments:

Len: You're a very accomplished dancer, but I'm seeing a pattern emerging. Last week your bolero lacked a bit of romance. Tonight your paso doble lacked a bit of aggression. You need a bit more chemistry between the two of you. Overall, very well done.

Bruno: The paso doble has to have conviction. It's like a battle of wills and you have to have artistry at the same time.

Carrie Ann: I think you're a great student, but now we want to see if you can really make to the end. You moved really well, but I want you to remember to go out past your body; you stop your movements at your hands.


Mya and Dmitry Chaplin

Judges' Comments:

Len: To be honest with you, I never really know what I like until I see it, and I like this.

Bruno: Precise with a great air of sophistication. You're a great technician. For the future, you have to keep the emotional connection. When you're so good, sometimes you feel distant and remote.

Carrie Ann: You move so well. What was slightly lacking was the emotional connection. It was distant without an inner dialogue.


Michael Irvin and Anna Demidova

Dance: Paso Doble

Judges' Comments:

Carrie Ann: Finally someone put their game face on! Michael, favorite dance so far, finally!

Len: Your posture was good, it was expressive, I love the knee walk, that halting way you walked around the floor. I liked your bolero last week, this is even better.

Bruno: Michael, keep that nickel in your butt (he'd put a nickel between his butt cheeks to keep them squeezed tightly during rehearsals), because it's working for you. Your stock is rising again.

Judges' Comments:

Bruno: You're turning into Mephisto, the red devil. I thought you'd sprout horns. You were on it, talk about sharp and angular.

Carrie Ann: There's a very subtle difference between force and power and tonight you were in your power.

Len: You need posture, you need passion, you need performance. Tonight you had all three.

Judges' Comments:

Len: I'm so pleasantly surprised. The tango is about the emotion, about setting the mood. I know you're a little pedestrian in your walks, but you set the mood.

Bruno: Great storytelling -- the lost boy meets the hot chick, a night of passion, then he gets dumped. It worked, I read everything into it.

Carrie Ann: It's definitely a little pedestrian, you get out of dancer mode, but I like the way you partner her -- you're partnering her, you're manipulating you, and that's the basis of this dance.

Judges' Comments:

Carrie Ann: The question is, Does the Argentine Tango love Donny Osmond? [Nods emphatically] The Argentine Tango loves Donny Osmond. I think about a million women at home just fell in love with you, I just fell in love with you. There's a whole new side to you tonight. It was so darn sexy.

Len: I loved the intensity of the dance, those quiet moments of passion, then fast and sharp. It was truly your best dance.

Bruno: Finally Donny Osmond's turning into Donnie Darko -- brooding, moody, dangerous and sharp as a blade.
