And then there were 5. The competition only gets
better. After a round of dancing, the Instant Dance round comes in play. What is
it? You'll find out later. Let's get to dancing.
Chelsea & Mark will dance in the first half by waltzing to "My Love" by Sia.
They're actually pretending they're lying on the beach and through the graphics,
teh floor is now the tides. Mark wakes Chelsea up and later does a back foot
drag. On to the judges. Len said she put too much emphasis on the story, Bruno
said she found the perfect setting for Chelsea to shine and Carrie Ann
said....nothing. But there's something.....
Round 1 Score: 29
Next is Hines & Kym doing a foxtrot to "This Will Be" by Natalie Cole. Hines has
a ring, but he'll show that later. They went to the bench for a bit of a dance
there and afterwards, he showed her the ring by the end. Here come the judges.

Bruno said yes 3 times. 1 time for the scoreboard....

took all control of herself and dominated the whole dance. Here's what the
