Judges' Comments:

Len: You danced with maturity, you had lofty posture, your frame was good. It had a great connection between the two of you; you partnered it well. That's your best dance, and I'm proud of you.

Bruno: The boy has become a gentleman. It's very hard to live in this dance. The musicality is great. The posture, excellent.

Carrie Ann: It was beautiful, I was falling in love with the lyricism. You did lose your footing, but A for effort. I'm loving the new Aaron Carter.

Judges' Comments
:

Len: The last refuge of the untalented is gimmicks and props, and it's not necessary for you to spend 20 bars polishing my desk. What you did, you did wel.

Bruno: Stylistically you were spot on, your timing was incredible. It was like one person dancing.

Carrie Ann: This is the jitterbug, where you can go wild and crazy, and I felt this was soft and muted. You did it really well, but it's slightly under what I expect from you.

Competition Mambo: 9 points

Judges' Comments:


Bruno: You look like you're enjoying yourself, but this was not a premier-league waltz. Your posture wasn't good enough for week 6. Everybody likes you, I like you.

Carrie Ann: That waltz was so charming. There was a new fluidity to your movements. However, you did have some stumbles, so I have mixed emotions.

Len: It's amazing -- three people can watch a dance and two of them get it totally wrong. It had a charm about it, it was a gentle waltz. It had the best footwork of any waltz we've seen tonight. You move very well, your face engaged with the dance.

Competition Mambo: 2 points

Judges' Comments:

Bruno: It didn't look like you were dancing to me, it looked like you were trying to remember what you were told. Your posture was bad, there was no flow to the dance.

Carrie Ann: At least you kept your puppies up! The waltz is supposed to be gliding and fluid, it felt a little sticky. It felt rigid, you had a hard time with this dance.

Len: It had musicality, I thought you looked elegant throughout the dance. There were some problems with the technique, however, but their critiques are a little bit harsh.

Competition Mambo: 4 points

Judges' Comments:


Carrie Ann: I loved it! The tricks were fantastic. That's the jitterbug, that's the energy I was looking for.

Len: Sometimes less is more, but not in the jitterbug. Full of energy, great!

Bruno: You kept up with the crazy kitty (Lacey). You did lose the timing just at the end.

Competition Mambo: 6 points

Judges' Comments:


Len: Parts of that were fantastic. I love your enthusiasm, we all love a tryer. Unfortunately, the bits are just bits, you lose your energy.

Bruno: You go all wacko, which suits this dance, but you lose the precision out of it, the timing goes all off. You have to work on being precise and clean.

Carrie Ann: I loved this dance, it suited you. But you dropped your partner twice.

Competition Mambo: 3 points

Kelly Osbourne and Louis van Amstel

Judges' Comments:

Carrie Ann: You brought your sense of fun back into the dancing, but sometimes when you prepare for the worst, you bring the worst. You have so much fun, you engage with the audience, you just have to stay in the happy place.

Len: I know you've had a bad ankle, and maybe you're trying to be protective of that, but it was a bit flat-footed. It lacked the wildness and freedom I'd like to see in the jitterbug. It was like a blueberry muffin with no blueberries -- it looked tasty, but it disappointed.

Bruno: It was cute, it was nice, now you have to ignite the performance. It's not Kelly anymore, you have to become the character. Allow yourself to perform. It was kind of beige.

Competition Mambo: 5 points

Judges' Comments:

Bruno: It was like watching a butterfly gently gliding over an alpine meadow. Beautiful, weightless.

Carrie Ann: The lines were very beautiful, but there was a lot of hesitation, I felt like you were doubting yourself.

Len: Your footwork wasn't to brilliant. You had good holds, great musicality, and it's the best waltz we've seen tonight.

Competition Mambo: 10 points

Judges' Comments:


Carrie Ann: You guys know how to work a room! You did have a stumble and moments of being out of sync.

Len: Whatever dance is thrown at you, you come out and perform it full on. As always, really entertaining.

Bruno: Somebody can work a room, this is the guy, but it was a bit like watching a steam engine try to keep up with a bullet train. Always a great performance.

Competition Mambo: 7 points
