Dancing with the Stars: Season 17 Week 4

No Len?  How do we survive without him?  I will tell you how: Julianne Hough as a guest judge!  Here is someone that not only knows how all the dancers feel but believes in constructive criticism.  She roots for everyone but does tell the truth.  I actually thought she was pretty great at judging.  Here is what happened last night:

Jack and Cheryl

Dance: Quickstep

Jack is definitely more suited for the Ballroom dances.  I agree with the judges, he does need to loosen up a little bit and have more fun.  I love that his sister, Kelly and her DWTS partner, Louis Van Amstel were in the audience cheering them on.

Score: 8-Carrie Ann, 8-Julianne, 8-Bruno, Total: 24

Voting Number: 800-868-3402

Elizabeth and Val

Dance: Argentine Tango

Elizabeth is an amazing dancer.  What I loved was that she tried to make Val a little uncomfortable by doing an exercise that had him staring into her eyes. She wanted them to be connected.  It was weird, but definitely effective.

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

Voting Number: 800-868-3405

Brandt and Peta

Dance: Salsa

Let’s be honest, his actual Salsa moves were as Julianne put it: “Loosey Goosey.”  Yes, I realize that you are pretty Brandt, but you still have to shake it properly.

Score: 7-Carrie Ann, 7- Julianne, 7-Bruno; Total: 21

Voting number: 800-868-3403

Valerie and Tristan

Dance: Viennese Waltz

When Valerie and Tristan are together they looked beautiful but some of the routine was difficult to watch.  She got lost when they were separated.  She is still an inspiration.

Score: 6-Carrie Ann, 6-Julianne, 6-Bruno; Total: 18

Voting Number: 800-868-3410

Leah and Tony

Dance: Cha Cha

I think that she can go farther! She is really good and always says she is not a dancer.  But — hello — she is.

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

Voting Number: 800-868-3411

Corbin and Karina

Dance: Paso Doble

The man can dance and this week there were no gimmicks!  As Julianne said, he doesn’t need them.

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

Voting Number: 800-868-3406

Snooki and Sasha

Dance: Jive

Unfortunately for Snooki all the traveling back and forth to the east coast caught up with her. It was a cute dance but can she keep up the pace?

Score: 8-Carrie Ann, 8-Julianne, 8-Bruno; Total: 24            I

Voting Number: 800-868-3412

Christina and Mark

Dance:  Foxtrot

I thought it was a nice dance. Julianne gave Mark a little grief since she used to dance with him. I enjoyed that part.

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

Voting Number: 800-868-3401

Amber and Derek

Dance: Tango

She’s awesome!  And Julianne really wanted to hate it because it was her brother but it was excellent, of course.  (Now Derek tried to be funny by giving Julianne cash.  He needs to stick with the dancing. The jokes are what Tom Bergeron is there for.)

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

Voting Number: 800-868-3407

Bill and Emma

Dance: Samba

I love that he really puts his all into it!  Samba wasn’t the best dance for him but he still made it through to next week!

Score: 7-Carrie Ann, 7-Len, 7-Bruno; Total Score: 21

Voting Number: 800-868-3409

Here is the time that all the dancers dread:  Who is about to be eliminated? It was time for Valerie and Tristan to go.  I think it wasn’t about winning for her, but to send a message not to give up.  How can you not love this woman for that?

See you next week.

Dancing with the Stars airs Monday nights at 8/7c on ABC.
