Dancing with the Stars 7: Week 7

DWTS

On this week’s episode of , the producers had one more surprise in store for both the competitors and the audience.

In addition to their solo numbers, the six pairs had to perform in the first team dance. After being split into two groups of three (captains Warren Sapp and Susan Lucci were responsible for the assignments), the teams were then charged with working together on an ensemble performance. Unlike last Monday’s previous group hip hop number, these two performances - a Cha Cha Cha and a Paso Doble - were actually being scored. (Those scores would then be added to the individual totals.)

Who showed us they could work in unison…and who still needed work on their solos? Read on!

  • The couples all had to tackle hip hop for the group dance number.

Dancing with the Stars 7: Week 5 Loser

Dancing with the Stars' Toni Braxton and Alex Mazo

Last night’s episode of turned out to be quite an interesting event. Although we are used to seeing frustration on the celebrities’ faces, we are not accustomed to seeing clueless looks on the professionals as well.

Ironically, the teachers most familiar with the new styles they were given (Tony with the Hustle and Lacey with the West Coast Swing) received some of the lowest numbers of the night. Meanwhile, those coming into their dances cold (Derek, Cheryl and Kym) scored well.

For the first time, the parquet floor saw the pairs take on either the Hustle, Jitterbug, West Coast Swing or Salsa. Interestingly enough, the styles were so new—even some of the professionals struggled. ( even had to research online!)

Which competitors rose to the challenge…and which ones needed more schooling? Read on!

Last Tuesday, chef Rocco DiSpirito and Karina Smirnoff came very close to being eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. But thanks to Misty May-Treanor’s nasty accident, the couple was given another chance to stay in the game.

Unfortunately, the remaining 9 pairs were not able to write off Week 3 completely. The scores from this Monday’s dances are going to be combined with last week’s numbers to determine Week 4’s elimination.

So after tonight’s Samba and Tango performances, were Rocco and Karina still likely to leave next? Read on!
