As Tom Bergeron said, one must fall…
The show opened with the judges choice of a redo of the futuristic Paso Doble by Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough.
Viewers were treated to a recap of last night’s performances and scores. The first couple revealed as safe and continuing to the semi-finals was Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough.
Of the five couples, the four on the low end of the leader board were separated by only 2 points. Each couple was critiqued, pointing out each flaw and highlighting each brilliant move.
Michael Buble sang a song from his album Crazy Love while Maksim, Jonathon, Anna and Cheryl danced throughout the number.
The next couple advancing to the semi-finals was Mya and Dmitri.
Sabrina Bryan was on hand to present information about the Macy’s Design a Dance event. She will be dancing a Paso Doble to the song Eye of the Tiger. With her as yet unrevealed partner later in the show.
Dance Center aired with Jerry Rice, Kenny Mayne and Head Judge Len Goodman critiquing each star. Joanna needs a lot of polish. Her laugh was highlighted in a series of clips from rehearsals and compared to a seal bark. Donny Osmond has incredible energy. Len expressed a bit of jealousy over Donny’s embrace of fellow judge Bruno. Aaron is dancing absolutely brilliantly at the moment but his threshold for pain was mocked in a video showing him complaining during rehearsals.
The long-awaited reunion of Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas took place in a powerful and vibrant Paso Doble. The number was strong and the chemistry was just as passionate as when they were partners. The audience went wild, first in anticipation then with applause. Their run as a couple was cut short but their magic goes on.
Michael Buble returned to sing another number, Feeling Good, in the crooning style of Frank Sinatra.
The remaining three couples were interviewed and Donny said he learned how much a body can ache. Kelly Osbourne was amazed to discover what can be achieved when you put yourself out there. Aaron said he’d learned many big, life lessons.
This brought us to the point where Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson were saved to dance again. This left Kelly Osbourne and Aaron Carter along with their partners in the red lights.
The Scottish singing sensation, Susan Boyle sang her signature song, I Dreamed a Dream as Tony Dovolani and Chelsie Hightower floated across the floor.
Dance Center next critiques Kelly Osbourne whowas defined as adancing enigma. Her accent and use of colorful language was credited as her draw with fans. Mya has all the stats to go all the way. Her abuse of her partnere was revealed in clips of rehearsals where she was shown repeatedly bullying him.
The final pair going to the semi-finals is Kelly Osbourne and Louie Van Amstel . Aaron Carter was eliminated. Judge Len Goodman praised his dedication and personal growth as he and partner Karina took to the dance floor for their last dance.
