Who doesn’t like a famous dance? This week’s episode was a reinterpretation of dances we all know and love. And, honestly, the couples did a tremendous job. Also the guest judge was Olivia Newton-John, the original big screen Sandy from Grease! The ballroom had a lot of Aussies in the house!

Fun Fact: DWTS judge Julianne Hough is playing Sandy in FOX’s upcoming live version of Grease, which airs Sunday, Jan. 31. Meanwhile, Carlos PanaVega stars as Kenickie in that same production.

Okay, back to the competition. How did everyone do? Here’s the breakdown:

Hayes Grier and Emma Slater
Dance: Jazz
Phone Number: 855-234-5608

  • First, who was annoyed that Hayes didn’t know who Olivia Newton-John was? They did the “The One that I Want,” from Grease (One of the greatest movie musicals ever). He did a great job and hope that he watched the movie before he did this dance.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Julianne-8, Olivia-8, Bruno-8- Total: 32

Andy Grammer and Allison Holker
Dance: Jazz
Phone Number: 855-234-5603

  • Singin’ In the Rain is one of the most iconic musicals. It was really important that they make this great. “Good Morning” is a song that I personally love so much. I thought it was a fantastic tribute and Andy really took it to another level. He’s getting better every week.

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Julianne-10, Olivia-10, Bruno-10- Total: 40

Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas
Dance: Cha Cha

  • Britney Spears and her famous performance of “Slave 4 U.” Can Alexa do it with the snake? The answer is yes. That should have gotten a higher score but the judges are being a little hard on her.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Julianne-7, Olivia-7, Bruno-8- Total: 30

Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough
Dance: Rumba

  • Dirty Dancing is the choice dance. And how perfect since Derek won Season 11 with Jennifer Grey? It was such a terrific tribute to the movie and the dance that we all grew up with. They did the lift! Thankfully they didn’t get in trouble by Carrie Ann!

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Julianne-10, Olivia-10, Bruno-10- Total: 40

Paula Deen and Louis van Amstel
Dance: Jazz
Phone Number: 855-234-5611

  • Madonna’s Vogue from the 1990 VMAs is a classic number. It was crazy and there wasn’t much content but it was fun. I think it might be time for Paula to go.

Score: Carrie Ann-6, Julianne-6, Olivia-6, Bruno-6- Total: 24

Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson
Dance: Rumba

  • Magic Mike — one of the greatest movies without a plot! What a choice for Carlos! Not going to lie but that was kind of hot. Channing Tatum would be proud! I agree with Carrie Ann. That was a fantastic dance.

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Julianne-9, Olivia-9, Bruno-10- Total: 38

Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Samba
Phone Number: 855-234-5610

  • Saturday Night Fever “You Should be Dancing” was Nick’s tribute tonight. It was unbelievable and my favorite dance of the night so far. Totally don’t agree with Carrie Ann. I enjoy Nick and Sharna.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Julianne-10, Olivia-10, Bruno-10- Total: 39

Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold
Dance: Jive
Phone Number: 855-234-5601

  • They did Elvis’ “Jailhouse Rock.” Not the best dance but, like I keep saying, he really is doing so well. However, I agree with Julianne. He needs to step it up in order to keep going in the competition.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Julianne-8, Olivia-7, Bruno-7- Total: 30

Tamar Braxton and Val Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Jazz

  • Oh man. Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” dance gets the DWTS treatment. It’s Tamar. Miss Braxton, if you’re nasty! (Different song but you get it!) This is one of my favorites of all time! My other top dance of the night. Tamar made Janet proud! I loved it!

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Julianne-10, Olivia-10, Bruno-10- Total: 40

Tonight is an elimination: which couples are safe or in jeopardy? The first couple in jeopardy: Paula and Louis. The second couple in jeopardy: Alexa and Mark. That is INSANE. The remaining couples are safe.

It comes back to Paula & Louis and Alexa & Mark. The couple leaving the ballroom is Paula and Louis. I think that was the right decision.
