Who doesnâ€™t love the Switch Up? Nobody! There was no elimination this time aroundÂ but the scores and votes from this week and last week will count towards next week’s results.
Someone will have to go bye bye. Also, at the end of this is my Moment of Goodness from last weekâ€™s show. FYI Jessie J was the guest judge this week. (I miss Len!)
Letâ€™s breakdown how the couples did:
Antonio Sabato Jr. and Allison Holker
Phone number 800-868-3402
- Really a hard dance to do and Allison is really an amazing dancer. Antonio had great facial expressions (Hello dimple!) But I agreed with the judges that there was disconnect with the partner because of the energy level and they werenâ€™t totally synchronized. But heâ€™s still hot!
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Jessie J-6, Julianne-7, Bruno-7; Total: 28
Bethany Mota and Mark Ballas
Dance: Hip Hop
Phone Number 800-868-3403
- I felt that the dance was a little awkward and not her best dance. Mark always overdoes it, which doesnâ€™t make the partner shine.. She got the movements but there was something weird. I still like her and her confidence is great.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Jessie J-8, Julianne-8, Bruno-8; Total: 32
Jonathan Bennett and Peta Murgatroyd
Phone Number: 800-868-3406
- He almost dropped her. It made Jessie J nervous, it made me nervous. We were a little scared. I feel bad because I like Jonathan but it was hard to watch.
Score: Carrie Ann-6, Jessie J-6, Julianne-6, Bruno-6; Total: 24
Alfonso Ribeiro and Cheryl Burke
Phone Number: 800-868-3401
- Love him, great chemistry. Thought he should have earnedÂ all 9â€™s. Great pairing.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Jessie J-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-8; Total: 34
Janel Parrish and Artem Chigvintsev
Phone Number: 800-868-3405
- They have never done this on the show. Thought this was pretty sexy for the show. Not sure I thought it was appropriate but now I sound like an old lady.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Jessie J-8, Julianne-8, Bruno-9; Total: 33
Michael Waltrip and Witney Carson
Phone Number: 800-868-3409
- This is what I thought while I watched this dance: He’s a dirty old man. It was a little creepy and awkward. I think Michael has a great spirit but I think it might be his time to go.
Score: Carrie Ann-5, Jessie J-5, Julianne-5, Bruno-5; Total: 20
Tommy Chong and Emma Slater
Phone Number 800-868-3413
- Loved it! The man surprises me every week. I thought the scores were a little low.
Score: Carrie Ann-6, Len-6, Julianne-5, Bruno-6; Total:
Sadie Robertson and Derek Hough
Phone Number: 800-868-3411
I just donâ€™t get it. I just donâ€™t get it. Iâ€™m not a fan and it bothers me that they talk about how long her legs are.
Score: Carrie Ann-9, Jessie J-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-9; Total: 36
Lea Thompson and Val Chmerkovskiy
Phone Number: 800-868-3407
- Loved it. This was so fun, so great. I think they should have gotten higher scores. For a Broadway lover this was a great celebration!
Score: Carrie Ann-9, Jessie J-8, Julianne-8, Bruno-9; Total:
Carrie Ann: â€œTom itâ€™s not just the skin.â€
Tom: â€œGo with your gut. Donâ€™t let this crowd influence you in anyway, but have someone else start your car.â€
Bethany- â€œI donâ€™t know what swag is.â€
Tom: â€œYou lost her at Madonna.â€
Tom: â€œIâ€™ve think weâ€™ve learned tonight once you do a hot dance with another woman itâ€™s always good to give a shout out to your wife.â€
Janel: â€œSorry Daddy.â€
Tom: â€œYou made that 9 sound so creepyâ€
Tom: â€œTommy has some experience with being very relaxed.â€
Tommy: â€œI look tired because Iâ€™m old. The face fools ya, but the bodyâ€™s working.â€
Meanwhile last week…
My Moment of Goodness from DWTS Season 19 Week 4 aka Most Memorable Year: Alfonso Ribeiro does the Carlton dance!
Every week when I write this blog, I always give my opinions about each couple, etc. This week I decided that I was only going to write about my moment of goodness. We have all been waiting for itâ€¦..Alfonso brought out â€œThe Carlton!!!â€ It was amazing! It was absolutely the best dance of the season and one of my favorite dances ever! Not only did he give us what we wanted, but also he demonstrated what a terrific dancer he really is.
Alfonso Ribero and Witney Carson
Phone Number: 800-868-3401
Only perfect score of the night, including a 10 from America. (Well at least the East and Central time zones!) Of course there was an elimination that I didnâ€™t agree with: Betsy & Tony said goodbye to the ballroom.
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
