Dancing with the Stars: “Season 20 Week 7” aka Different Eras/Dance Off
The highest scoring couple this week receivedÂ immunity from elimination. Who stepped up? More importantly, who went home?Â It was quite theÂ shocker. But it wasn’t a double elimination. Weâ€™ll get to what happened after we break things down couple by couple:
Riker Lynch and Allison Holker
Dance: Â Quickstep
Phone Number: 855-234-5608
- When I think Riker canâ€™t top himself, he does. This was his best dance! Iâ€™m not a fan of the Quickstep and this made me a fan.
Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-10, Julianne-9, Bruno-9; Total: Â 37
Chris Soules and Witney Carson
Dance: Â Foxtrot
Phone Number 855-234-5602
- There was something off about this dance and Iâ€™m not sure what it is. I thought it was okay but it didnâ€™t have the â€œwowâ€ factor.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-7, Julianne-8, Bruno-8; Total: Â 31
Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy
Phone Number 855-234-5610
- This was a great dance and a jive with all the elements to boot. After last week and the judgesâ€™ comments, I think she came back swinging. She really is a great dancer.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-9; Total: Â 35
Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Â Jazz
Phone number 855-234-5605
- Sharna really knows how to use Noahâ€™s strengths. I think this was his best dance.
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-8, Julianne-9, Bruno-9; Total: Â 36
Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson
Dance: Â Argentine Tango
Phone Number: 855-234-5609
- This is pretty sexy. If these two arenâ€™t together I would be very surprised. The chemistry is off the charts.
Score: Carrie Ann-7, Len-8, Julianne-8, Bruno-8; Total: Â 31
Nastia Liukin and Sasha Farber in for Derek Hough
Phone Number: 855-234-5604
- When I heard that Derek wasnâ€™t going to be able to dance, I was so sad. But, as Tom said, Nastia and SashaÂ made lemonade out of lemons. This was really great! Derek was able to still get himself in the dance. Sasha did a great job filling in. Best dance of the night!
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-10; Total: Â 38
Willow Shields and Mark Ballas
Dance: Â Jazz
Era: Â Futuristic
Phone Number: 855-234-5612
- I appreciate being creative but I didnâ€™t think there was enough dancing. I just didnâ€™t agree with the judges but it just happens that way sometimes.
Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-10; Total: Â 37
Because Nastia and Sasha had the highest score of the night they earnedÂ immunity. And then there was a dance off.
There were three types of dances they could choose from so everyone had to prepare for all three. Whichever couple won the round — two points would be added to their total score.
Riker/Allison vs. Willow/Mark
Riker and Allison chose their opponents first and they picked Willow and Mark. Willow and Mark selected salsa.
Riker and Allison go first and do well. Willow and Mark didnâ€™t do as well, in my opinion.
Score: Carrie Ann: Willow/Mark; Len: Willow/Mark; Julianne: Willow/Mark; Bruno: Willow/Mark.
I could not disagree more with the judges. Riker and Allison clearly won that dance off. Even Twitter agreed with me!
Noah/Sharna vs. Robert/Kym
Noah and Sharna were next and picked Robert and Kym. They chose the Cha Cha.
Noah and Sharna go first and then Robert and Kym. Both couples had trouble.
Score: Carrie Ann: Robert/Kym, Len: Noah/Sharna, Julianne: Noah/Sharna, Bruno: Robert/Kym.
Because there was a tie, Lenâ€™s vote was the tiebreaker so Noah and SharnaÂ snagged the two points.
Rumer/Val vs. Chris/Witney
Next, Rumer and Val wentÂ up against Chris and Witney. They danced the Foxtrot.
Rumer and Val go first and are amazing! Chris and Witney did pretty well but they donâ€™t come close to Rumer and Val. I donâ€™t think itâ€™s a contest.
Score: Carrie Ann: Rumer/Val; Len: Rumer/Val; Julianne: Rumer/Val; Bruno: Rumer/Val.
The judges and I agreed!
A Shocking Elimination
The first couple safe was Noah and Sharna. The next couple safe –Â Robert and Kym. Then it’s Chris and Witney. This wasÂ shock consideringÂ the lowest scoring teams were being deemed safe. Wow. One of show’s top couples is going home.
Riker and Allison don’tÂ go anywhere. The elimination came down to Rumer/Val and Willow/Mark.
Going home this week: Willow and Mark. Immediate reaction: Willow was really upset and Mark said he was proud. This was definitely a shocker.
Tom: â€œI thought I was watching Vin Scully.â€
Len: â€œUnlike the trains in England, you were right on time.â€
Tom: â€œWeâ€™re back and so is Burt Reynolds’ mustache.â€
Len: â€œDonâ€™t you start booing back there!â€
Tom: â€œThe tango version of Squirrel!â€
Next week is the double elimination that was supposed to be this week. (And the week before that!) Everyone needs to vote.
And donâ€™t forget that tonightÂ is the Dancing With The Stars 10th Anniversary special!
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
