Dancing with the Stars “Season 22 Week 8” aka America is the Judge/Judge vs. Judge
It’s Week 8 of Dancing with the Stars. Once again, the contestantsÂ must perform two dances. The first one’sÂ aÂ regular routine. The second one? The judges compete against each other with America acting as the third vote. Each team has two couples each. Who would move on to next week’s Semi-Finals? Who would go home? The answer to that one is a bit of a shocker. Let’s see how the couples did:
This week, the show didn’t play. Before the first dance even happened, one couple found out if they were safe or in jeopardy. Nyle and Peta were — of course — safe. They were upÂ first:
Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd
Dance: Paso Doble
Phone Number: 800-868-3409
- Peta wanted to show the audience what Nyle goes through from his perspective. So part of it was completely silent. Overall, heÂ had some technical issues, but he continues to blow everyone away.
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Bruno-10; Total: 29
After the commercial break, there were three couplesÂ deemedÂ safe or in jeopardy. The next safe couple: Paige & Mark. The first couple in jeopardy was Jodie & Keo. Antonio & Sharna are also in jeopardy. Up to batÂ next: Antonio & Sharna
Antonio Brown and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Viennese Waltz
Phone Number: 800-868-3401
- This week, Antonio really worked hard on his technique. It was an elegant dance and he has made a huge push forward. It wasÂ clear that all the work Sharna did with Antonio paid off.
Score: Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9; Total: 2
Jodie Sweetin and Keo Motsepe
Phone Number: 800-868-3405
- This was Jodieâ€™s best dance by far. This is the oneÂ we were waiting for — Jodie’s breakthrough. Keo did a great job putting this whole thing together. I think Jodieâ€™s nerves have gotten the best of her before, but she has grown throughout the competition.
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-10, Bruno-10; Total: 30
Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas
Dance: Viennese Waltz
Phone Number: 800-868-3410
- Not sure about how I feel about this performanceÂ as a whole. I thought most of the actual dance was sensational. I just wasnâ€™t in love with the concept.
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Bruno-9; Total: 28
After the commercial break, Ginger & Val and Wanya & Lindsay found out their fate. Ginger & Val were safe. Meanwhile, Wanya & Lindsay were told they were in jeopardy.
Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Argentine Tango
Phone Number: 800-868-3404
- The judges loved the dance. Iâ€™m not quite on the same page. Her face looked like she was frightened throughout. I just didnâ€™t feel the same way as the judges.
Score: Carrie Ann-10, Len-10, Bruno-10; Total: 30
Wanya Morris and Lindsay Arnold
Phone Number: 800-868-3412
- Poor Wanya fell. He just kept moving because he is a professional performer. Len said it best: He came out guns blazing. It was unfortunate but he still should go untilÂ the end as far as I’m concerned.
Score: Carrie Ann-8, Len-8, Bruno-9; Total: 25
Round 2- Judge vs. Judge / America judges
Team Bruno: Nyle & Peta and Jodie & Keo
Dance: Argentine Tango
- I thought that Jodie & Nyle did a great job dancing together. As crazy as Bruno made this dance, it was very engaging to watch. It was impressive. They were in sync the whole time. I donâ€™t know what America was thinking but it should have been a perfect score.
Score: Carrie Ann-10 ,Len-10, America-9; Total: 29
Team Len: Ginger & Val and Wanya & Lindsay
- The big picture of Len behind the dancing was hilarious. The routineÂ was fun and watching Len dance was a nice change of pace.
Score: Carrie Ann-10 ,Bruno-10, America-9; Total: 29
Team Carrie Ann: Antonio & Sharna and Paige & Mark
Dance: Paso Doble
- It was a strong dance for the two athletes. Having Paige & Antonio do extremely complicated lifts was a bit scary but they did it with power and grace. Carrie Ann showed off their strengths and it was fascinating to watch.
Score: Len-10, Bruno-10 , America-9; Total: 29
After all the teams tied, it was finally time for the elimination. It came down to Antonio & Sharna, Jodie & Keo and Wanya & Lindsay. The first couple in the semi-finals was Antonio & Sharna. It came down to Jodie & Keo and Wanya & Lindsay.
Jodie & Keo would be going home. It was tough, but Jodie remained classy. She went outÂ with a perfect score and a grateful attitude.
Len: â€œIf you boo more, I can give them some more.â€
Erin: â€œI need a minute.â€
Tom: â€œYouâ€™re holding it together Len.â€
Tom: â€œI just love happy.â€
Erin: â€œBindi Irwin, you want to take my job now? Great, pressure!â€
Tom: â€œThank you, Bruno. You go faster, too.â€
Len: â€œYummy, Yummy, whereâ€™s my mummy.â€
Tom: â€œLen looks like what I picture Carrot Top looking like in 30 years.â€
Can you believe it? Next week areÂ the Semi-Finals and Trio week. Tom also informed the remaining couples that there would be a double elimination. Who will be the final three couples? Remember to vote, people!
Dancing with the Stars airs Monday nights at 8/7cÂ on ABC.
