Shangela/Gleb vs. Daniel/Britt

Dance: Cha cha cha

Song: ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice


Both teams did very well, but as much as I love Vanilla Ice, his performance took away from the dancing. He should have just done a performance for the troupe. However, they both nailed this performance.


Len: It was an 8 for both of them in terms of performance, but Shangela stood out a bit more and therefore, won the relay and five extra points.


Vinny/Koko vs. Trevor/Emma

Dance: Samba

Song: Never Gonna Get It by En Vogue


Again, the performance from the singers takes away from the dancing. That being said, Trevor did better technically, but Vinny was more fun.

Heidi/Artem vs. Wayne and Witney

Dance: Samba

Song: Shoop by Salt-n-Pepa


That was a fun dance….Wayne really made it his own, while Heidi really brought it as a whole.


Bruno: They both had what he was looking for, but Wayne wins the five points.


Charli/Mark vs. Gabby/Val

Dance: Salsa

Song: Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody by Kid ‘N’ Play

Both of them did soooo well…..Charli nailed the dance, but that LIFT Gabby and Val did….WOW!


Derek: They both crushed it, but the five points go to Charli.
