Tonight on ABC Dancing With The Stars returns with all the glitz, glitter and drama. The competition continues as each couple will compete in an individual dance style they have not yet done as well as take part in the first ever “Switch-Up Challenge.” In this fresh take on a dance marathon, couples will compete side by side, in two rounds, with no prior knowledge of dance style or musical accompaniment. One by one, the judges will select couples to be tapped-off/removed from the dance floor. Extra judges’ points will be awarded to couples based on longevity.
Check out all of tonight’s performance videos below and hit the comments and let us know what you think!
Bill Engvall and professional dancer Emma Slater: dancing a Tango.
Judges comments: Len “It was a cheeseburger tango, sharp and tangy, overall well done.” Bruno “Plenty of cheese on top but a little cheesy in the middle. You lost the smoothness of the footwork of the tango.” Carrie Ann “Strangely odd combination of humour of passion. You did what you do best, but the footwork was a bit off, although thoroughly entertaining.”

Judges comments: : Bruno “You still got it big time, so sexy that it just killed me. Apart from that, it was so clean and so sharp, it was brilliant.” Carrie Ann “You take all the criticism, tonight though you were like a white panther, you have so much confidence. I loved it.” Len “You are a formidable partnership, you are consistent. Your hips were hypnotic, well done.”

Leah Remini and professional dancer Tony Dovolani danced a Quickstep routine.
Judges comments: Carrie Ann “That might be the biggest turnaround that I have ever seen, it transformed you into someone elegant.” Len “There are rules with the Quick Step, the rest of the dancers need to listen to them. You were down last week, this week you were way up.” Bruno “You are like Ginger Rogers, just fabulous.”

Brant Daugherty and professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd: danced a Tango routine.
Judges comments: Len “It was like a glass of dry white wine, dry and crisp, absolutely great”. Bruno “The prince charming has turned into the prince of darkness. I loved that you were like a leading man, there were a couple of stumbles, but I loved to see the range in you.” Carrie Ann “I agree with both of them, that was incredible technique wise, but yes there were a few times you got off the music, you were still a perfect Ken doll.”

Amber Riley and professional dancer Derek Hough: dancing a Foxtrot.
Judges comments: Bruno “Apart from your performance value, I counted and you did everything perfect.” Carrie Ann “I loved the dance, every time I watch you I think fierce. What you did was awesome, every move drove me insane, it was a turn on.” Len “It was a fantastic routine but I found it a tad repetitive. This girl is a fantastic dancer.”

Jack Osbourne and professional dancer Cheryl Burke: danced a Paso Doble.
Judges comments: Carrie Ann “I love that you put your heart and soul into it, but it was one dimensional for me. You really were trying to be to stiff for Cheryl.” Len “I thought it was full of intent and purpose, there was a little mistake, but the rest was top notch.” Bruno “Your timing wasn’t as good as usual, today you were chasing the music. You also need to put your crotch forward, but overall a good effort.”

Corbin Bleu and professional dancer Karina Smirnoff: dancing a Foxtrot.
Judges comments: Bruno “This was an epic melodrama, usually you have great lines but this time you lost the flow with your Conan the Barbarian lines.” Carrie Ann “You have to live up to high standards and it worked. I really think the passion was there but there could have been more holds.” Len “Tonight there was nothing in the ballroom hold, I really didn’t feel it was a Viennese Waltz.”
