It’s a double dose of fun on the latest Dancing with the Stars. That’s because it’s Halloween Night as well as the much anticipated Freestyle Team Dance. Plus, Leah Remini, is back filling in for Erin Andrews. Here’s the breakdown of the couples:

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

  • This dance wasn’t perfect and I think it’s because he overthinks things. But you know what? Nick has an excellent attitude and is working his butt off.

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

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

  • This waltz was a little boring but it was nice and he did what he had to do. He did listen to the judges but much like Nick’s routine, it’s not perfect.

Score: Carrie Ann-8, Julianne-9, Bruno-9- Total: 26

Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas
Dance: Paso doble
Phone Number: 855-234-5602

  • So enjoyable! Sometimes when Mark gets crazy ideas they don’t always pan out but this one did. And as Bruno said, it was very Tim Burton!

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

Tamar Braxton and Val Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Foxtrot
Phone Number: 855-234-5612

  • She’s definitely a contender but I think she was a little over confident tonight. Tamar did have minor mistakes but you couldn’t really see them. Hopefully people don’t get turned off by her thinking she’s the best dancer. I agree she is one of the best, but the best dancer doesn’t always win the Mirror Ball.

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

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

  • In my opinion, last week’s dance was much better than this week’s Paso Doble. So it’s not a surprise that I have to agree with Bruno. Grammer lost his shaping. I think his arms were a little wonky. It was all a little weird.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Julianne-9, Bruno-8- Total: 26

Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough
Dance: Argentine Tango
Phone Number: 855-234-5604

  • I thought the dance was well choreographed (hello, of course, it’s Derek!). It was the perfect dance. Bindi’s facial expressions were weird, but she rocked the dance. This is probably Bindi’s Mirror Ball Trophy to lose.

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Julianne-10, Bruno-10- Total: 30

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

  • In the package before they danced, Alek said that the judges were wrong last week and I really thought he sounded a little bratty. Yes, he’s a hero and I thank him for that. But you came on this show with no dance experience and have done exceptionally well. You can’t stay mad at the judges. Thankfully, Artem came and he helped out in rehearsal to show him what he did wrong. I thought tonight’s dance was fine but there is something about his arms I don’t like.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Julianne-8, Bruno-8- Total: 25

Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson
Dance: Paso Doble
Phone Number: 855-234-5605

  • This was probably Carlos’ best dance of the season. He kicked it up a notch and he is someone who is clearly in it to win it!

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Julianne-10, Bruno-9- Total: 28

Team Dances

Fun Fact: Derek has never lost a team dance but as Tamar says: Doesn’t mean he is going to win again. Last week the team captains were decided based on who had the highest scores of the total season. That meant Bindi and Nick got to select the teams. The breakdown:

Team Nightmare: Nick & Sharna, Tamar & Val, Andy & Allison; Hayes & Emma

  • I thought this dance to Danny Elfman’s “This is Halloween” came together very well. Everyone seemed to be in sync and worked as one. There was no weak link, which sometimes happen in these dances. They totally deserved a perfect score!

Score: Carrie Ann-10, Julianne-10, Bruno-10- Total: 30

Team Who You Gonna Call?: Bindi & Derek, Alexa & Mark, Carlos & Witney; Alek & Lindsay

  • As I watch this dance to the Ghostbusters theme song, I know that Derek will lose for the first time. Alek was the weakest link but he tried. Bindi was a little off, which is so unlike her. The other team just had it together better.

Score: Carrie Ann-9, Julianne-10, Bruno-9- Total: 28

And, yes, Derek’s winning streak with the freestyle team dance is finally over. Team Nightmare wins!

Now after all the dancing comes the elimination. The first couple in jeopardy is Hayes and Emma. The next couple in jeopardy is Tamar and Val and joining them in jeopardy is Alexa and Mark. The remaining five couples are safe.
