Dancing with the Stars added four new dances to the show's usual ballroom line-up. The West Coast Swing, Salsa, Hustle and Jitterbug had even the pros stressing, as many of them had never even tried these styles themselves. Cody Linley came away with his best scores but I fear what tonight might bring. Let's take a look at how it all went down.
In another twist, each of the couples went head-to-head against another couple doing the same dance. At the top of the heap was both Brooke and Derek and Cody and Julianne doing the Jitterbug. They both were fun, energetic and the tricks just kept on coming.
Cody, in particular, really made an impression this week with what has got to be the perfect dance for him. Trouble is, will he be able to maintain that momentum when it comes to less raucous dances on Dancing with the Stars.
Maurice and Cheryl and Cloris and Corky both served up some spicy Salsa. Maurice really upped his game tonight and it showed in this fast and fun dance. Cloris and Corky, as usual went for entertainment value over technical merit. They were also fun to watch, but honestly, I hope it's Cloris who goes home tonight.
Toni and Alec faired only a little better with their swing and that's confusing to me, too. Toni should be better than she is on the floor. She looks good in rehearsals, she seems to have all the necessary skills and yet every week she falls a little flat. With only one point keeping her out of the bottom two, it's possible that Toni could be going home tonight instead of the popular Cloris. I hope not. It's going to be a nail-biter!
