It was full of "rhythm and imagination," but ultimately the hip action was lacking. Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold - Quickstep - "Chuck Berry" by Pharrell Williams The dance: When you have a minute to rewatch this season, I want you to watch Jordan Fisher's facial expressions while he dances and try not to smile. He really was born for the quickstep, and if his faces are any indication, he loved dancing it. Drew Scott & Emma Slater & Rashad Jennings - Cha Cha - "Get Up Offa That Thing" by James Brown The dance: Could anyone even this routine with all the glitter-jackets and mirror balls and sequins in this routine?Carrie Ann thought she brought out her inner-Beyonce, which is probably the greatest note to ever get. Everyone else has sort of muscled their way through it, and he's floated. Trio Dances Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke & Kelly Monaco - Rumba - "Slow Hands" by Niall Horan The dance: I'm not sure I'm totally down with Kelly promising Terrell a date if they got three 10s, especially considering the sexual nature of their trio dance, but if everything's consensual then more power to 'em. What the judges said: Carrie Ann (and every female audience member) was loving the sex appeal, but she thought he was capable of more than what he did on stage. Keeping up with Rashad is hard for any dancer (hello, reigning champ), but for a dancer who's got little to no rhythm to begin with? Drew lost the beat a couple times, but I did noticed his body rolls were way more soulful than normal.The girls are so precious and I feel like they're traumatized from what has happened with Abby and it's important for me to still be strict and do what I do and I expect nothing but the best from the girls but it's also important for me to make them feel confident about themselves because they're all beautiful, they're all talented."They all want to move on and do other things and it's important that they all have the right head on their shoulders and they don't ever walk in a room with their head down, feeling like they aren't good enough," she said.Score: 26/30Lindsey blamed the "awkward white girl" in her, which is kind of fair, to be honest. Even the loud blue suit couldn't detract from his stellar performance. Speaking of that dance, Terrell cashed in on those stellar abs of his, and he even showed off some sexy hip action too. What the judges said: The judges noticed that he didn't quite make muster on the "soul" aspect, especially when put next to Rashad, whose hips absolutely don't lie.
Ed Sheeran probably did a lot of the work, making this a super romantic number, but Frankie and his awesome lines didn't hurt. Unfortunately, this was another case where a more talented alum was paired with a less than fantastic newbie, and Victoria looked pretty stiff next to Laurie's awesome shaking and jiving.
The Lifetime show hired ex-"Dancing with the Stars" pro Burke to finish out "Dance Moms" season 7 as the young dancers' teacher for several episodes which will air later this year.
(No premiere date has yet been announced) After an exhibition performance on Monday's "DWTS," Burke told reporters her teaching style will be much different from Miller's on "Dance Moms." Burke revealed, "It's going great.
The dance: The Charleston is always going to look weird on lanky dancers since you have to flail your limbs around at twice the average speed of an African swallow.
Terrell didn't necessarily look totally graceful, but he managed better than I expected.
Dancing these routines requires a lot of acting (just ask Frankie Muniz), and that's not Victoria's forte. Then again, did anyone else think this week's choreography was a little tame compared to the wild acrobatics and fast footwork of all her previous routines?
