By Joanne Rosa

After last week’s double elimination, DWTS decided to double the dancing last night. The stars had to learn two full dances, and they teamed up with past Mirror Ball winners for a special trio dance. The returning winners include Rashad Jennings, Alfonso Ribeiro, Corbin Bleu, Kristi Yamaguchi, Kelly Monaco, and Laurie Hernandez.

It’s impressive to see how much Terrell has grown since the beginning of the show. He has rhythm, style, and is light on his feet. Bruno considers him to be a rising star, and Carrie Ann thinks his dance moves are toned. Cheryl continues to work him to the bone every day, but it’s starting to pay off! According to host Tom Bergeron, Terrell “has it.”

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 27/30

#TeamHotProperty

Thanks to the power of group dance last week, Drew was second on the board last night. The whole dance was very romantic, and Drew had good intentions, but it wasn’t good. It looked like the bottom half of his body had no idea what was going on. Every judge agreed that Drew’s rhythm was lacking and his frame was off.

Carrie Ann: 7
Len: 7
Bruno: 8
TOTAL: 22/30

Victoria Arlen & Val Chmerkovskiy

“Down” by Marian Hill
Argentine Tango
#TeamViVa

As sexy as Victoria looked in her dance, Carrie Ann pointed out that her eyes were constantly dropping, which made her seem insecure. As Bruno put it, Victoria wasn’t able to keep in character throughout the dance. We have to give Victoria a break here. She suffered from muscle spasms while training for this dance. Remember that Victoria can’t feel her legs, so this is no ordinary muscle spasm.

Carrie Ann: 8
Len: 8
Bruno: 8
TOTAL: 24/30

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

“Morning Drums” by Gregor Salto
Samba
#TeamSTARK

Len thought the dance was funky, and not in a good way. To him, Lindsey’s footing was off and there wasn’t enough samba. Carrie Ann thought the dance was cutting edge, and Bruno loved how Lindsey’s inner wild cat came out (she was dressed like a lion). Lindsey was proud of her dance and had a good time doing it!

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 8
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 26/30

Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson

“Perfect” by Ed Sheehan
Viennese Waltz
#TeamFranneyPack

Bruno thought the dance was stylish, elegant, but he has a slight problem tensing up his shoulders. Carrie Ann saw Frankie’s moves as clean, suave, and basically close to perfect. As for Len, he said Frankie’s legs didn’t straighten out once. Frankie’s at the top of the leader board right now.

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 8
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 26/30

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

Quickstep
#TeamFishUponAStar

Pretty much the only words Carrie Ann could form were brilliant, and sassy. Len had no words. All he did was stand up and clap. Bruno called it the most intricate and brilliant quickstep he’s ever seen.

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 30/30

TRIO DANCES

Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke with Kelly Monaco

“Slow Hands” by Niall Horan
Rumba
#TeamGetchaPopcorn

The fastest way to the audience’s heart might be through their pants. Even Stevie Wonder could see the sexual tension in this threesome. Len didn’t care for it all that much.

Carrie Ann: 8
Len: 8
Bruno: 8
TOTAL: 24/30

Drew Scott & Emma Slater with Rashad Jennings

“Get Up Offa That Thing” by James Brown
Cha Cha
#TeamHotProperty

With Rashad and Emma dancing on stage, it’s hard for Drew to compare. Carrie Ann thought the whole dance was great, but we think she was distracted by all of the disco balls and Rashad Jennings. The judges liked the funk and glam, but they didn’t comment on the dancing all that much.

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 8
Bruno: 8
TOTAL: 25/30

Victoria Arlen & Val Chmerkovskiy with Laurie Hernandez

VICTORIA ARLEN, VALENTIN CHMERKOVSKIY

“Magic” by B.o.B (feat. Rivers Cuomo)
Jive
#TeamViVa

The Golden Girls’ looked great, but the routine was a little sloppy. Victoria is still having some pain from her previous spasm, especially since she already did a full routine earlier. She’s been hurting, but we hope the judges’ scores don’t hurt her too much.

Carrie Ann: 8
Len: 8
Bruno: 8
TOTAL: 24/30

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas with Kristi Yamaguchi

LINDSEY STIRLING, MARK BALLAS

“Let’s Face The Music And Dance” by Seth MacFarlane
Jazz
#TeamSTARK

If we didn’t know any better, we’d say that Lindsey, Mark, and Kristi’s dance was straight out of an old Hollywood film. The dance was tight, and it looked like something we’d pay money to see!

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 9
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 28/30

Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson with Alfonso Ribeiro

FRANKIE MUNIZ, WITNEY CARSON

“Good Place” by Leo Sou
Jive
#TeamFranneyPack

Alfonso swore he would never do it again, but he did “the Carlton” dance. Carrie Ann thought Frankie was holding himself back a little bit during the performance.

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 27/30

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold with Corbin Bleu

LINDSAY ARNOLD, JORDAN FISHER

“Que Viva La Vida” by Wisin
Salsa
#TeamFishUponAStar

Jordon and Corbin are basically the same person. They didn’t miss a beat! Len said dancing with three can be difficult, but for Jordan, Lindsey and Corbin, it was perfect. They nailed every move, and Bruno said this dance will likely go down in DWTS history.

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 30/30

With everyone’s scores mixed up last week after the group dance, anyone could have been eliminated last night. The couples in jeopardy were Frankie with Witney and Terrell with Cheryl.

There weren’t enough viewer votes and judges’ scores to keep Terrell in the competition this time.
