- It's movie night on "Dancing with the Stars," and it starts with a troupe performance to a medley of movie songs.
Chynna & Tony: After holding on for at least another week, Chynna & Tony are shocked that Kristin went home and worry about their standing. They're going to dance a tango to "Mission: Impossible." Tony gets a little impatient when Chynna gets in his way repeatedly while he's trying to show her the right steps. She tells him she had an epiphany and is going to let him teach her. She seems to struggle through quite a bit of it. Chynna is visible shaken when she's done. Len Goodman says "it all went up the Swanee River" and it was clear she lost it, "it went wrong" and she didn't know where she was and panicked. He says, "unfortunately there was a lot of mistakes." Bruno Tonioli says she wanted to do it so badly that she lost the thread and couldn't get it back. Carrie Ann Inaba notes that Chynna did not lose her composure. She says she wants to see Chynna come back from this. Scores: 7, 7, 7. Total: 21
David & Kym: David made it back into the judges' good graces, as host Tom Bergeron says, with his performance last week. They get the paso doble, which they'll dance to the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" theme. The crowd roars its approval, delaying Bruno's remarks for a moment. Bruno says it was very strong, but warns David to watch his turns because sometimes he's a little unsteady. Carrie Ann says, "David saves the day!" She says he's catapulted to a different level and says she "loved every minutes of it." Len says he liked David's intrigue and attitude, but "after that, for me, it was all 'Temple of Doom.'" The crowd jeers and Bruno and Carrie Ann both jump to David's defense. Len insists he never saw the posture and tight buttocks. [b[Scores: 8, 7, 8. Total: 23
Carson & Anna: Carson got a great reception last week for his tango and felt good about surviving based on a good performance. This week, they're dancing a Viennese waltz to "The Curse of the Black Pearl" from "Pirates of the Caribbean." It's kind of a disaster. Carrie Ann says it was Carson's "most butch performance." She says Carson's a conundrum because she looks forward to his performances but his technique is awful. Len says it's "like child birth, terrible while it's happening and enjoy it when it's over." He says there was "no quality of movement, no technique" but adds it was "great fun," and says that if he was at home he'd be "phoning" for Carson. Bruno points out that he lost his steps a few times, but it's fun. Scores: 7, 6, 7. Total: 20
Nancy & Tristan: Nancy landed near the bottom of the leader board last week and Tristan shows up at her show to tell her she needs to have that kind of personality and presence when she dances. They dance the paso doble to "Flash Gordon." She seems to stumble on the final step. Len says the dancing is competent, but he can't get excited because "it's not exciting." Bruno tells Nancy she's "got to become a ball breaker out there." He tells her to "just go for it." Carrie Ann says they need to give Nancy more credit because she delivers her routines, but says she does need to connect better with the audience. Scores: 7, 7, 7. Total: 21
Hope & Maks: After delivering what Len called her best performance of the season last week, Hope is back with a foxtrot to "You Got a Friend" from "Toy Story." She has trouble learning the routine by focusing too much on specific steps. Bruno says it was "so lovely" and adds that he loved it. Carrie Ann says it made her smile the whole way through. She says it was "so refreshing to see" them having fun. Len says he's frustrated because Hope could go all the way but he says she isn't spending enough time practicing and polishing her routines. Scores: 8, 8, 8. Total: 24
Rob & Cheryl: Rob gets a paso doble to the music of "Superman," which Rob says fits him perfectly (humble much?). He opens up to Cheryl about how invested he's become in the dancing and she tells him he should be proud. Carrie Ann says she likes the way Rob moves. She says it's "just the way a man should be in the ballroom." She says it "all worked." Len says he "didn't mind it," but he "can't go into raptures about it." He says the paso is the "most living dance," and says there has to be some intensity. Instead, he says, that when Rob was doing his walks, he looks like a waiter offering hors d'oeuvres. Bruno says Rob has the ability, but has to believe in himself more. Scores: 8, 8, 8. Total: 24
Ricki & Derek: After a very personal routine that earned her the top spot, she's getting the tango to the music of the movie, "Psycho." Derek has trouble choreographing a routine to the music, which has some odd time signatures. Ricki is also struggling to get the moves down. Carrie Ann's jaw drops as the routine finishes with Derek dramatically "stabbing" Ricki in the stomach behind a screen that only shows their shadows and turns red. Len says Ricki always delivers, but suggests that she get more shape in her neck. "Top of the leader board," he says, "I think so." Bruno says "it really was an immaculate tribute to the Master of Suspense." Carrie Ann says, "Brilliance in the ballroom. Done." Scores: 10, 9, 10. Total: 29
Chaz & Lacey: After surviving elimination despite being at the bottom of the leader board for the second week in a row, Chaz says he's "coming back strong." To help pump him up for his boxing-themed paso doble to the music of "Rocky," Lacey brings in Richard Simmons to whip Chaz into shape. Bruno says that "in the true spirit of 'Rocky,' no matter how many knocks you take, you keep coming back, you keep fighting, and you keep getting stronger." Carrie Ann is trying to figure out why she's crying. She says she loved it, and says he's magical. Len says that like Rocky, Chaz is "getting stronger." He says it was Chaz's best dance to date. Scores: 7, 7, 7. Total: 21
J.R. & Karina: After a hugely emotional performance last week, J.R. says he wants to focus on his technique so he can stay in the competition. This week he's dancing the foxtrot to the "Pink Panther" theme. Karina brings in Nick Kosovich, a ballroom champion, to show him how it's done. Carrie Ann says she thought it was "OK," but says the performance felt a little flat. She says they didn't need the humor, which "didn't quite make it." Len doesn't understand Carrie Ann's critique, saying J.R. was the best male dancer of the night. He says it wasn't too much humor, and says "this was fabulous." Bruno says it was "subtle humor" and says J.R. is a dancer of great versatility. Scores: 8, 9, 9. Total: 26
