dancing-with-the-stars dwtsWoo Hoo!  It is Era Night and it began with a beautiful jazz number. With all of the pro dancers in tuxedos and bright yellow dresses, we got our feet tapping!

Riker was up first with a 1920’s Quickstep. At the top of the leader board, they were ready to perform a baseball Quickstep. Riker wanted Len’s 10! He came out and had so much fun! Riker was so lite on his feet and so in the moment! I loved it! From Len, the 10! They totaled with 37!

Chris danced the Fox Trot to a Frank Sinatra performance from the 1940’s. They did an adorable job on their dance! They were awesome! I didn’t want it to end! Chris is turning into a dancer, was the general feeling from the judges! They were thrilled with a 31!

Next we found ourselves in the 1960’s with a Jive from Rumer and Val! Rumer was dealing with an injury, but she came through shining. I saw a softer, chipper side of Rumer. The judges were tougher on Rumer because she is so good. I loved her dance! The judges came through with a 35.

We were so excited to see the dance off! Before that, Noah was up with a 1970’s Jazz.  Amy Purdy came to visit Noah and encourage him. Noah came out in a fur coat and leisure suit and rocked it with amazing moves! Carrie Ann was blown away! All of the judges agreed! I was amazing! They left with a total of 36. Carrie Ann gave them their first 10!

Robert was up next, ready to dance to a 1980’s version of the Argentine Tango. Wow, Robert was full of intensity! Oh my, this was definitely a dance to watch again! The judges loved the chemistry between them and the change in Roberts performance. They closed with a 31!  I would have given them a higher score, but I’m not a judge! Oh well, a girls gotta dream! Ok, back to the dance floor!

Nastia had to dance with a new dancer. Derek was injured during rehearsal. Nastia danced a Modern Charleston. Wow, who was the pro and who was the Star? “They killed the performance,” “surprising,” “the joy,” and Len gave it a thumbs up, were the judges comments. They got a 38 and were thrilled!

Nastia was in the lead and could get immunity but Willow was the last to dance. They were dancing futuristic Jazz as ninjas! They did great, but the choreography was amazing. Bruno loved it, Carrie Ann loved it, and they agreed that the choreography was amazing. So Nastia received immunity.

Now we were awaiting the dance off! 6 couples were ready to dance off against one another!   The couples without immunity were against one another and did not know what dance that they were in for!

First up, for Riker and Allison, Willow and Mark, they picked Salsa.  Riker was great, but I liked Willow the best! Yes, the judges agreed!!! All 4 judges picked Willow and Mark!!! They were awesome!

Next up, was Noah and Sharna with Robert and Kym, dancing the Cha Cha. Robert had so much fun on the dance floor so I would have to give Robert the win!  They tied and Len’s picked the tie breaker, so Noah and Sharna won!

That left Rumer and Val and Chris and Whitney to dance the Fox Trot. Rumer nailed it! Chris and Whitney were up next. Chris was heavy in the feet. Rumer and Val won hands down!

Next week will be a double elimination! Noah, Robert, and Chris are safe! Riker was safe!  Willow was eliminated! It broke my heart! She was amazing! Willow, at 14, did an amazing job!  You rock, Willow!

Well, next week, same time, same place! Until then, dance like no one is watching!
