The theme for this week Dancing with the Stars episode was rock n’ roll which meant a plethora of Mohawks, painted faces and huge 80’s hair that we all thought we had escaped. But, no season of Dancing with the Stars is fulfilled without its handful of injuries, injuries, injuries.
No one had bigger hair this week than the beautiful Brooke Burke, her performance was good but also not memorable.
Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus really tried their hardest to perform well to Bohemian Rhapsody which was a rather difficult song. Their efforts were stringent but not good enough. The judges acknowledged that they appreciated the effort that the two put in but they were a bit sloppy and their posture could have been stronger. Altogether the judges were not impressed by the dance moves but more-so by Gladys’ costume.
Cheryl Burke and William Levy also fell rather short. The judges were not impressed by their performance, or lack thereof. The two had a slight fumble that knocked off their beat for the remainder of the song causing them to end a little bit later than their song. The judges told them what they knew to be true which was to focus more in order to avoid such mistakes.
Chelsea Hightower and Roshon Fegan did an amazing job on their performance and Carrie Ann loved it! She even disclosed to Roshon that she thought he may be one of the best male dancers on the show. It’s safe to say that he is safe.
Maria Menounos and Derek Hough danced to “School’s Out” and did a fabulous job. It was almost impossible to tell that Maria had injured her foot not too long ago. However, when Derek carried her to the judges table to get their critique it was evident that Maria was and had been in a great deal of pain. Carrie Ann only had positive things to say to the two and gave them props on their chemistry.
Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirtnoff danced to “Paint it Black” and that is exactly what they did. They fell short on technique and got criticism for it.
Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd really blew the judges and America away once again with their performance to “Purple Haze”. There were not enough adjectives to use when describing their performance: sensual, hot, sexy, raunchy… the list goes on and on. Carrie Ann even called it one of the most memorable moments.
Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s performance was not memorable simply for their dancing but rather because Melissa had to be rushed away for an injury immediately after their performance. It is said that she suffered from a concussion and whiplash but she is suspected to be okay.
By prediction Donald and Peta most likely got the top scores once again this week while Gavin, Karina, Cheryl William and possibly a few others did not deliver their best. Only next episode will reveal the true results.
