‘Dancing With The Stars’ Recap: Female Contestants Earn Top 3 Scores
Dancing With the Stars, which featured music by R&B legend Stevie Wonder last night, saw Zendaya Coleman and Kellie Pickler earn 29 points each. Third place of the night went to Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman.
Coleman performed a “sharp and clean” Cha Cha with partner Val Chmerkovskiy, according to the judges. Len Goodman dubbed Pickler and Derek Hough’s Quick Step the best dance of the season. Raisman’s foxtrot with Mark Ballas earned her high praise and a solid 27 points.
No surprises again this week with the stars who received the least amount of points from the judges. Neither Andy Dick nor Victor Ortiz broke 20, receiving 18 and 19 points, respectivey. Dick and Sharna Burgess had performed what Burno called a “personality-driven splendid shamble of a samba,” while Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold had taken on a rumba where the boxer failed to bring the necessary hip-action.
In the middle of the pack were the rest of the remaining men – Sean Lowe, Jacoby Jones and Ingo Rademacher. Lowe and pro Peta Murgatroyd danced a rhythm-lacking Samba, Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff performed an energetic Quick Step that paled in comparison to Pickler’s and Rademacher and Kim Johnson took on an intense Tango that showcased the soap star’s impressive posture.
Team Paso, which included Coleman, Jones, Ortiz and Radebacher earned 22 points; while Dick, Lowe, Pickler and Raisman’s Team Samba was awarded 25 points.
Dancing With the Stars will airs its results show on ABC tonight at 9/8c.
