After the 12 remaining couple performed on stage for New York night, they return only 24 hours later to perform a second dance, this time to pay tribute to Las Vegas.
The pros get the dancing started off with a gambling themed routine that includes the Blue Man Group that was choreographed by Mandy Moore
There was a technical issue with the phones on Monday night; as a result, the phone votes will not be included in the tally for fan votes.
Juan Pablo and Cheryl get the second night of music and dance started with a steamy Foxtrot. Host Tom Bergeron called them a couple of smooth operators. Saying, “no problemo,” Len said that by and large the dance was first class; adding that it was no gamble, they would be back next week. Bruno said talk about a bug opening, it was almost to hot to trot; adding that while sultry, it was a top notch in slickness and elegance with superb choreography. Calling it something so impressive, Carrie Ann said that Juan Pablo has very strong technique; adding yummy, yummy, yummy. Juan Pablo and Cheryl scored 26 points for their Foxtrot and have a total of 52 points for the two nights.
Milo and Witney performed a Tango to the music of Celine Dion. Dion sent a video message to the duo. Bruno said that the couple were on fire like the flight of the phoenix; adding that Milo is focused and powerful. Saying that she loves her job, Carrie Ann noted that Milo has quite a range and great lines even with a big size difference between Milo and Witney. Len noted that Milo hit every nuance in the music, was clear and crisp, sharp, and fast but his bottom was sticking out. Milo and Witney scored 26 points for their dance and have a total of 52 points for the two nights.
Season nine DWTS champion Donny Osmond returns to the ballroom.
The Blue Man Group perform during the commercial break and a few moments after the show returns.
Donny Osmond sings “Luck Be a Lady” from “Guys and Dolls” while Danielle and Artem perform a Quickstep. Carrie Ann loved the way they used the space; adding that Danielle touches their hearts when she dances. Len said that it took a while for the dance to get started but he enjoyed it; adding that their dancing complimented Donny’s singing. Saying that the dance was well played, Bruno noted that Daneille looked like she was enjoying herself. Danielle and Artem earned their highest score so far with 19 points for a total of 35 points.
Alexis and Alan performed a Salsa that had Len saying there was no playing it safe. Len said that the dance had plenty of rhythm and Alexis was working her assets. Noting that Alexis is very bendy, Bruno said that the dance was non stop and called it Cirque do Soleil meets Salsa. Carrie Ann said that Alexis lights up the stage; adding that she has great lines. Alexis and Alan scored 24 points for their dance for a total of 49 points for both nights.
John and Emma took on the roles of Elvis impersonators for their Jive. John revealed that he is in the Elvis museum in Graceland for having a single of an Elvis cover with the most sales. John and Emma got a little help from a couple of Troupe members for their dance. Wondering if he was hallucinating for seeing four Elvises, Bruno called the dance great entertainment and so much fun; but noted that John got a little lost. Saying that John was not as good as Monday night Carrie Ann said that John did Elvis proud. Noting that it is a tremendous challenge to learn two dances for two nights o dance, Len said that John did a great job. John and Emma scored 20 points for their Jive and have a total of 43 points for both nights.
Season 25 DWTS champion Jordan Fisher and runner-up Frankie Muniz will be hosting the new “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors”. The duo joined the pro dance juniors for a routine.
DeMarcus and Lindsay performed a Quickstep while Boyz II Men performed “Ladies’ Man” live. Carrie Ann called DeMarcus a “Ladies’ Man” but also told him to watch his shoulders. While he liked the dance Len talked to DeMarcus about his frame again. Saying that DeMarcus is still on a winning streak, Bruno noted that there were some imperfections but DeMarcus has a dashing presence. DeMarucs and Lindsay scored 23 points for their dance and have a total of 47 points for both nights.
Joe and Jenna performed a Jazz dance to “The Gambler”. Len said that the dance held his interest and had a nice mood; adding that Joe did a good job. Bruno said that it was a good mix of Jazz and Contemporary dance; adding that Joe still has to come out of his shell and needs to go for it. Carrie Ann noted that Joe looked like he felt better out on the dance floor; adding that she saw improvement. Joe and Jenna scored 18 points for their dance and have a total of 35 points for both nights.
The Blue Man Group return to perform.
Evanna and Keo perform a Jive to “Heatwave” that had Tom saying he wanted to see more. Tom called it a lovely desert Jive. Bruno said that they had cooked up a pretty tasty Jive; adding that Evanna came alive and was full of so much energy this week. Calling it a wonderful performance, Carrie Ann said that Evanna used every ounce of movement but felt she was a wee bit ahead of the music. Len; on the other hand, felt that Evanna was right on time; adding the dance was full of energy. Evanna and Keo scored 24 points for their dance and have a total of 48 points for both nights.
Bobby and Sharna performed a magical Quickstep to “That Old Black Magic”. While Carrie Ann thought that the dance was very entertaining, she felt that Bobby needs to tone it down a notch and channel his energy. Saying that the dance had the Las Vegas vibe; Len called it a little Quickstep, a little Sigfried and Roy, and a lot of entertainment. Telling Bobby to be gentle with the lady, Bruno liked the energy but also told Bobby to tone it down. Bobby and Sharna scored 19 points for the dance with a total of 39 points.
Nancy and Val performed a Paso Doble that was inspired by the Cirque do Soleil and their “Storm” show. To help Nancy get into the spirit of the dance, Val took her to the show and they got to go on the set. Tom noted that Nancy had an intense look. Len said that the dance was full of attack and spirit but lacked a bit of the finesse of the Paso Doble. Bruno called the dance the “Game of Thrones”, “Vikings”, and “Pirates of the Caribbean” all rolled into one; adding that Nancy needed to hold the shape of the dance and the flavour of Spain in her dance. Carrie Ann loved that Nancy “hung with the guys” in the dance. Nancy and Val scored 20 points for their dance and have a total of 41 points for both nights.
Tinashe and Brandon performed a Cha Cha to Britney Spears’ song “Circus”. Tinashe has performed on stage in Las Vegas with Britney and appeared on Spears’ last album. Tom noted that the duo was two for two. Saying that Tinashe has him under her spell, Bruno called the performance mesmerizing, bewitching, tidy, and original. Agreeing with Bruno, Carrie Ann noted that Tinashe has incredible musicality and generates energy when she dances. Calling it another knockout performance, Len loves what Tinashe does but notes that there is a sameness in all of her performances. Co-host Erin Andrews reported another injury when she revealed that during their dance on Monday, Tinashe elbowed partner Brandon in the eye. Once again Tinashe and Brandon scored 26 points for their dance and have a total of 52 points for both nights. For Tinashe and Brandon it has been three dances and three scores of 26 points.
The final dance of the night…and the 24th dance in just over 24 hours…Mary Lou and Sasha don the yellow feathers for their Samba to the hit song “Copacabana” by Barry Manilow. In her video package, Mary Lou notes that she has a lot of hardware in her body from all the injuries and surgeries. After the dance, Tom said that while she may have a lot of hardware, she made it look like easyware. Saying that Nancy nailed it, Carrie Ann said that you would never guess what they have put the dancers through over the past two weeks. Len noted that there were so many feathers that it was a wonder the ostrich wasn’t an endangered species. Calling it a proper proper Samba, Len said that he wished everyone would come out like Mary Lou and Sasha and just do the dance. Bruno said that they captured the party mood of the song…and the dance; adding it was the perfect way to end a party night and he has so much fun. Mary Lou and Sasha scored 24 points for their Samba and have a total of 46 points for both nights.
Running short of time, hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews name the two couples in jeopardy and at the risk of going home – John and Emma and Danielle and Artem.
The second couple to go home on season 27 of “Dancing with the Stars” is Daneille and Artem. Showing little emotion, Danielle just kept saying thank you to remarks made to her.
