Week 7 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars brought a double dose of dances and eliminations. The solo performances celebrated music icons and then there were the Team Dances which pit the women vs. the men! We’re in the home stretch. Who are the two couples going home? Let’s see how they did:

Jodie Sweetin and Keo Motsepe
Dance: Quickstep
Icon: Stevie Wonder
Phone Number: 800-868-3405

  • It seemed like the dance was a bit tentative at the beginning but eventually smoothed itself out. It was hard and challenging but Sweetin did a good job. She even looked like she started to enjoy herself. Jodie was very happy with her scores.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-9, Bruno-9; Total: 26

Kim Fields and Sasha Farber
Dance: Samba
Icon: Jackson Five
Phone Number: 1-800-868-3406

  • As I watched this I thought it was good but not great. I think the 9s she received should have been for her dance last week instead of this week. (She had done the dance from “Hairspray”) Last week she was very upset at her scores and made it known. Is that why she got 9s instead of 8s this week?

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9; Total: 27

Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd
Dance: Foxtrot
Icon: U2
Phone Number: 800-868-3409

  • I really liked it and I thought Nyle did beautifully. Peta is not only an incredible teacher, she is a fantastic choreographer. After Len told Nyle not to compare himself to the pros, it really affected Nyle during the week. I don’t think he meant to sound so cocky. Once again, he is defying the odds.

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Bruno-9; Total: 28

Antonio Brown and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Tango
Icon: Rolling Stones
Phone Number: 800-868-3401

  • Clearly Antonio is more determined then ever. I didn’t see the footwork as much as the judges but I thought he got this dance. Sharna is another excellent choreographer. I thought he seemed a little angry in the face but he has so much energy that it oozes out of him.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Bruno-8; Total: 24

Wanya Morris and Lindsay Arnold
Dance: Foxtrot
Icon: Aretha Franklin
Phone Number: 800-868-3412

  • This was a very sweet dance. I agree with Len, it was joyful. Wanya really wants to win this. He had to miss a day of rehearsal because of a previous engagement but he showed why he is one of the top dancers this season.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9; Total: 27

Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Viennese Waltz
Icon: Whitney Houston
Phone Number: 800-868-3404

  • I thought this dance was very well done. Do I think it should have gotten a perfect 30? No, but there’s nothing I can do about that. I thought Ginger was too smiley during the dance. When you listen to words to this song you can’t be like that. But apparently the judges don’t agree with me. (They really should though!)

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-10, Bruno-10; Total: 30

Von Miller and Witney Carson
Dance: Salsa
Icon: Elvis Presley
Phone Number: 800-868-3411

  • The thing about Von is that he seems not to take this as seriously as the other contestants. Maybe it’s just the way his face sits. (I’m not calling it resting bitch face but what do you call it?) The dance was just there, in my opinion. It seems that Von has lost a bit of his momentum.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Bruno-8; Total: 24

Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas
Dance: Jive
Icon: Tina Turner
Phone Number: 800-868-3410

  • This was my favorite dance of the night. Paige is one of the best dancers this season. Paige shines at the Jive because she is an athlete and it is so physically demanding. She is the underdog because a lot of people don’t know who she is. I’m pretty sure that the people know who she is now!

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-10, Bruno-10; Total: 30

TEAM DANCES

This is the first time that it is Men vs. Women. Let’s see how that went:

  • I wondered how Nyle would be able to do this with all the people in the dance. He kept up and there is this one part when Nyle actually leads the whole group and it was outstanding choregraphy! I can’t say enough of the female pros. The guys really came together as a team.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-10; Total: 28

Team Beyoncé (The Women)
Kim & Sasha, Ginger & Val, Jodie & Keo, Paige & Mark

I was disappointed. When you do Beyoncé, it has to be fierce from beginning to end. I felt that it stalled a little bit at some points but was great at others. It just wasn’t as good as the men’s. There was some stuff that wasn’t in sync but other wise they did an okay job.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Bruno-9; Total: 25

Double Elimination

It is always tough when there is one couple going home but it’s much worse when it is two. The first couple that was in jeopardy was Kim & Sasha. The second in jeopardy was Wanya & Lindsay and the third couple in jeopardy: Von & Witney. Everyone else was safe.

The couple that was safe: Wanya & Lindsay. Von & Witney and Kim & Sasha would be going home. Kim was surprised but Von said it is a very tough competition. Both Von & Kim felt it was a great experience.
