Recap

The dancers brought their A-game tonight, that's for certain. Here's a rundown of each tandem's scores and dances...

David Alan Grier & Kym Johnson, Lindy Hop: Len appreciated the fun and energy, but there were points of lost rhythm. Bruno liked the energy, but he needs to work on his timing. Carrie Ann thought it was great because he was both older and he picked up tempo when the song modulated. Score: 22 (8, 7, 7)

Lil Kim & Derek Hough, Argentine Tango
: Bruno gets over-passionate and continues to retell the story of the tango. He thought it was terrific. Carrie Ann called her the real deal. She loved the beautiful lines, and she danced like she was four inches taller. Len was knocked out by the choreography, but he didn't get the sensuality. Score: 27 (9, 8, 10)

Chuck Wicks & Julianne Hough, Lindy Hop: Carrie Ann thought it was good, but she wants to see him go for it. He's too safe. Len thought it was competent, but he needs to raise the bar higher. Bruno wants a crispy pizza. He thought the dance was loose on the edges. He's got it, but it's not all together. Score: 22 (8, 7, 7)

Lawrence Taylor & Edyta Sliwinska, Argentine Tango: Len knows that the dance could be hard for non-actors. He thought the performance was heavy, lacked passion, and was uncomfortable. Bruno thought it was menacing and intense. He knows that he was walking at points. Len wants him to stalk like a panther. Carrie Ann liked the execution of the steps, but said it lacked the intensity. Score: 19 (7, 5, 7)

Ty Murray & Chelsie Hightower, Lindy Hop: Bruno thought he was a young stallion. He's still rough around the edges, but he's progressing leaps. Carrie Ann calls him a dancer and appreciates Chelsie as a teacher. Len thought Ty was beyond his expectations. There was a little blunder in the middle, but it was great. Score: 25 (9, 8, 8)

Steve Wozniak & Karina Smirnoff, Argentine Tango: Carrie Ann loves him being an underdog, but the whole thing was long and there wasn't much going on. It's not just about faces, it's about passion. Len gives him some credit for trying a real tango, and he sees a small improvement in his steps. Bruno thought the whole performance was awful. Score: 12 (4, 4, 4)

Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani, Lindy Hop: Len thinks Melissa is a contender. He thought the last lift was a little off. Bruno thought it was eye-popping fun. He liked that the full range of the Lindy Hop steps that were used. Carrie Ann gives them high fives because she loved the difficulty and the choreography. Score: 29 (10, 9, 10)

Holly Madison & Dmitry Chaplin, Argentine Tango
: Bruno saw the bad start and it just kept going. It had potential, but she just stayed there. Bruno wants her to be a vixen. Carrie Ann appreciates that she stood through the pain. Carrie Ann suggests to intensify her strength. Len loved the routine, but Holly lost it the whole time. Len still thinks that she needs more core strength. Score: 16 (5, 6, 5)

Steve-O & Lacey Schwimmer, Lindy Hop: Carrie Ann knows that he had a rough road, but she liked that he did the whole routine. She feels like Steve-O is a step behind. Len agrees, the timing is a very big issue. Bruno thought it was "hopping mad." He thinks that Steve-O needs to listen to the music. He has a problem with timing. Score: 15 (5, 5, 5)

Gilles Marini & Cheryl Burke, Argentine Tango: Len calls it fantastic and loved the mix between opposites in the tango. It had every element. Bruno thought that he was the quintessential Latin lover. Carrie Ann loved that she couldn't tell who the professional was and who the celebrity was. Score: 30 (10, 10, 10)

Shawn Johnson & Mark Ballas, Lindy Hop
: Bruno loved the feast of tricks, but he wanted more dancing. Carrie Ann loved how polished she was dancing, but the steps were heavy. Len thought there were too many tricks and not enough dancing. Score: 25 (8, 8, 9)
