Week 6: Plug In the Amps!
October 25

Guitar hero fans rejoice! Even "Rock Band" fans may be in on this one, too. It's "Rock & Roll week" where our 7 remaining couples must dance a paso doble or a tango. On our last show, Florence henderson was gone, Crisco and all. Now it's time to crank up the heat. Let's get rocked!

Before we rock out, we have the top 10 dances of the past 11 seasons. And they are...

#10 Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas performing a free style dance
#9 - Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson performing the Argentine Tango
#8 Helio Castoneves and Julianne Hough performing the Quik Step from season 5
#7 Apolo Ohno and Julianne Hough performing a free style from season 4
#6 Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough performing the Paso Doble from season 9
#5 Mel B and Maksim performing the Paso Doble from season 5
#4 Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough performing the Paso Doble from season 10
#3 Apolo Ohno and Julianne Hough performing the Samba from season 4
#2 Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke performing the Argentine Tango from season 8
#1 Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke performing the Free Style from season 2

And speaking of #1, Audrina & Tony get that spot and dance a paso doble to "Another One Bites the dust" by Queen. They were dressed in red and they were dressed to kill for this routine. Now to the judges. Carrie Ann said the improvement for her is ridiculous, Len said her dancing lacks the character and Bruno agrees with that. And the scores say:

Carrie Ann: 8 Len: 8 Bruno: 8 Round 1 Score: 24

Next is Kyle & Lacey doing a tango to "If I Had You" by Adam Lambert. Lacey did some twirls and there was more action throughout the whole dance. And again we go to the judges. Carrie Ann said they were amazing this week, Len said he was happy with their performance and Bruno said Kyle's footwork was much better. We get the numbers:

Carrie Ann: 8 Len: 7 Bruno: 8 Round 1 Score: 23

We have Jennifer & Derek dancing a paso doble to "So What" by Pink. Derek was dancing alone at the band area while Jennifer was on the floor. Soon after, they danced pretty well. How well was it? Carrie Ann said she is going down hill, Len said she lost control during the dance and Bruno said she got the rage right but lost the quality of movement. Could this the beginning of the end of Jennifer Grey's reign?

Carrie Ann: 6 Len: 7 Bruno: 7 Round 1 Score: 20

Rick & Cheryl dance a tango to "You Really Got me" by Van Halen. With them in control of the dance, it had an ending all on its own. Let the judges talk. Carrie Ann said they did amazing, Len said they did an excellent job and Bruno agreed with that. Here aer the numbers:

Carrie Ann: 8 Len: 8 Bruno: 8 Round 1 Score: 24

Bristol & Mark will do a tango to "According To You" by Orianthi. They controlled it and they wore purple marching band dresses for good use. And the judges say....Carrie Ann said they were amazing, Len said she went from a chimp to a champ and Bruno said it was the best perforamnce to date. The scoreboard says....

Carrie Ann: 8 Len: 7 Bruno: 8 Round 1 Score: 23

Kurt & Anna will paso doble to "The Final Countdown" by Europe. Anna took control of the whole match while Kurt...lakced off of it. Did the judges catch that? Let's see. Carrie Ann said the dance did not have a lot of polish, Len said he looked akward and Bruno said he was doing karate. Let's chop the numbers....

Carrie Ann: 6 Len: 6 Bruno: 6 Round 1 Score: 18

And to end the first half, Brandy & Maksim doing a tango to "Holding Out for a hero" by Bonnie tyler. Although there were fake romantic moments to show for, this dance proves why the Tivos were on record all night. Now we go to the judges. Carrie Ann said it was...again amazing, Len said Maks was his hero and Bruno said the tango really rocked. Let's bring home the numbers...

Carrie Ann: 8 Len: 9 Bruno: 9 Round 1 Score: 26

So far, Brandy is leading with 26, but Kurt has to catch up with the rest of the field scoring 24s and 23s in the process. Now it's time for the rock & roll dance off. The song they'll perform is "La Grange" by ZZ Top. The judges will hold a paddle up to see who is gone. The last couple gets a big 10 points and increases a boost in public voting. So ready....steady......ROCK!

And they're off! It looks like....FUMBLE! Kurt & Anna leave immediately giving 4 more points taking him to 22. It's now down to 6. Bristol & mark should've stayed a little longer as they're the 2nd victims gone earning 5 more and bringing the total for the couple to 28. The 3rd couple earning 6 is.....Rick & Cheryl. 30 is what they have at the moment. The final 4 remain. who gets the bronze? It's......Kyle & Lacey. Add 7 to that and you get 31. 3 are left. The next one to get 8 is.....Audrina & Tony. 32 is what they'll end up with. The finish line is approaching for 1 of 2 couples. 1 must get 9, the other 10. And 2nd place went to.....Jennifer & Derek totaling it with 29 meaning Brandy & Maks get the 10 points bringing it up to 36.

What a marathon and a week it was. Smoke, fire and lighting, it doesn't get any better, but for tomorrow, it gets worse for one couple as the results show will see who gets axed. See ya later!
