More than Deadline

Cheryl Ladd and Louis Van Amstel. The veteran actress thought she left last week, but Goodman, bless him, saved her for another day. So he looked up an old photo of her and Sean Connery for inspiration so he could be “the Bond girl I never got to be” while performing a rumba of hers. Handsome! “That was your best dance,” said Judge Hough, who was particularly impressed with the graceful way she held her arms. “That couldn’t have gone better. You look absolutely beautiful, by the way. Come on Cheryl!” Score: 24 of 40

Jessie James Decker and Alan Bersten. The country star went the extra mile by dipping in gold for her rumba with “Goldfinger.” But some of the judges didn’t like what was otherwise a solid performance. Did they expect her to sink into the bottom two or what? “You have to work on your feet,” Judge Len Goodman said. “Your footwork wasn’t great.” Score: 26 of 40

Joseph Baena and Alexis Warr. Too bad, man: Her partner Daniella Karagach was still out after testing positive for covid before last week’s show. Then Warr got another chance to dance with the bodybuilder, who showed off her strength by hoisting her over her head during his Argentine tango. “It lacked a bit of fluency. I really didn’t like that elevator, it was out of place,” Goodman said. “But all in all, I think it was your best dance to date.” Score: 29 of 40

Sam Champion and Cheryl Burke. The former meteorologist recalled how he and his father didn’t speak to each other for years after he came out. But the dear father finally expressed his pride in his son, which gave Champion the confidence he needed, like, for example, every time he has to play a samba in front of a studio audience (which included GMAby Robin Roberts). “You have this natural playfulness that I think might have worked against you a little bit in this dance,” Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said. “Let your body flow a little more.” Score: 25 of 40

Vinny Guadagnino and Koko Iwasaki. The Jersey party animal was sent to a mini etiquette class so he would learn how to play sophisticatedly during his “Thunderbolt” rumba. Honestly, the best, otherwise forgettable part of her performance was when the cameraman cut to two unrecognizable women in the audience, whom he simply referred to as “Vinny’s friends.” “You have to start getting the details,” Inaba said. “Look at the nuance of your hands, which means maybe a few more hours of training. No diss, that’s totally full of respect.” Score: 23 of 40

Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater. the 90210 The actor is getting used to this whole sexy ballroom dancing thing: He started his tango with a somersault backstage before lunging at Slater and grabbing her by the neck. And then he lifted her leg up and pretended it was a gun? By God, I think he did. “He tried a very difficult routine,” judge Bruno Tonioli said. Score: 27 of 40

Selma Blair and Sasha Farber. The actress admitted that her “multiple sclerosis leg” froze last week during her jive. So why not make it harder and put a blindfold on it this week? Farber’s odd choice of accessories aside, the actress got sexy by keeping those hips busy and performing the splits again. “As inspired as ever. intensely romantic,” Tonioli said. “It was a bit daring, honey. I have a Nicole Kidman vibe.” Score: 28 of 40

Jordan Sparks and Brandon Armstrong. The singer’s rumba was a bit underwhelming, and her sleepy music “Licence to Kill” didn’t really help. “You need to get somewhere faster and get your feet closer,” Hough said of her spin. “There are so many turns in all your dances. Work on it. Score: 29 of 40

Shangela and Gleb Savchenko. The drag queen opened her rumba with a steamy solo before oozing a fabulous rumba to Tina Turner’s “GoldenEye.” Shangela was finally in her element under the mirror ball. “Damn girl, that was fierce!” Inaba said. Score: 30 of 40

Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart. The deaf actor was still riding high after earning his first 8 last week. But his confidence was put to the test with this week’s rumba, which is not so easy to tell while trying to appear mysterious and elegant. Still, the judges remain impressed by his perseverance. I mean, who wouldn’t be? “I’m going to say, what loved you took command of that dance. I could see that you were leading that dance, you weren’t just hanging on, hoping for the best,” Goodman said. Score: 31 of 40

Heidi D’Amelio and Artem Chigvintsev. The Hulu reality star looked tired as a plum in the middle of her Argentine tango, but her body showed no signs of wear and tear. She floored the judges with her tight and sensual moves. “That was your best dance yet!” Hough said. “It was so good, so strong, it played to your strengths. That was so fantastic.” Score: 32 of 40

Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy. The Bachelorette has felt like an impostor, especially in front of trained dancers like Wayne Brady and Charli D’Amelio. But her cha cha was certainly skilled enough for her to perform the final number of the night. “You went for that! He had power, he had attack, he had strength,” Hough said. “Overall great cha cha.” Score: 33 of 40

Wayne Brady and Witney Carson. the Let’s make a Deal Not exactly happy with the way age is taking its toll on his increasingly sore knees, the presenter performed the tango to the classic Bond theme. Stop complaining game show man – your moves hurt so good. “That was the first ballroom dance and I was worried how you would manage. Congratulations. I thought you managed magnificently,” Goodman said. Score: 33 of 40

Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas. The social media star should be feeling pretty good after being atop the leaderboard for two weeks straight. But it’s not good enough! Fortunately, his slick partner choreographed a killer rumba that ended with him drinking a toxic potion and “dying” at the end of the number. Audience members Kourtney Kardashian and her husband Travis Barker seemed to like it! “Three weeks we have been watching you dance and three weeks you dance fantastic. Beautiful feet. beautiful legs. It had a beautiful finish,” Goodman said. Score: 33 of 40

The last two couples were Champion and Burke and Van Amstel and Ladd. Tonioli, Inaba, and Hough voted to save Champion, so it was time for Ladd to go.

Louis is the best. He was a great teacher and very funny. When you’re a legend, you’ve lived a long time. And I’ve had a lot of fun,” Ladd said.
