Carrie Ann: You have a secret weapon that sets you in a class by yourself: the moment you have a breakthrough the crowd goes crazy.

Len: You've been an absolute revelation to me. I thought the work, the pressure would get to you, you'd give up on it all. You've come in week after week stronger and stronger.

Bruno: Groovy, baby! That was great. Don't be afraid, darling!

Judges' Comments:


Carrie Ann: I love that song, I love that era, I thought you did a great job of bringing that era back. But you stepped past what was OK, and went a little insane.

Len: The was the most scary, bizarre paso doble I've ever seen, a cross between Adam Ant and Adam Carolla. But I liked it.

Bruno: That had more camp in it than a drag queen's convention. Nobody could top this. It was like Donny doing Marie doing Donny doing Marie. I didn't know who I was watching.
