Wow, what a night!! I’m still upset about how the judges reacted to Sharna and Charlie. So unfair. Sharna tweeted that she isn’t sure what Charlie has to do, but, they will keep fighting. That’s the spirit.
I’m worried on Amy Purdy too. The last she tweeted on her condition, she said she was ok, but, she was still waiting for the doctor’s report. She also tweeted that she’s looking forward to next week’s dance and that she and Derek will dance an Argentine Tango (if she’s good to go).
In media things after the show, George Pennacchio of ABC7 has a recap and some previews of his interviews. Note how Sharna said she and Charlie have a Quickstep just like we previously posted last night. You can learn of more of our other dance spoilers here.
And just to review the scores again in case you need them….
Amy Purdy and Derek Hough: 36
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd: 35
Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy: 33
NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani: 31 (Eliminated)
Charlie White and Sharna Burgess: 36
Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas: 35
Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 39
One more thing, did you happen to see Gleb Savchenco and Elena Samodanova in the audience? She indeed wore a dress from her new line as promised. Below are some instagrams of them both. Beautiful!!
Ok, that is all for now. More later. Keep checking back!! xx
ETA: Below is Tony and Nene on GMA!

ETA2: Glamour has some “behind the scenes” coverage. Below are some comments from Charlie and Sharna. More at the link. Thanks to V for the heads up!
So, tell me if I’m wrong, but I think the biggest surprise to all of us in the press room each week is how Charlie White and Sharna Burgess keep getting short-changed in their scores. They are amazing dancers and performers, but if you listen to the judges, you’d think they were talking about someone far less talented. Something isn’t adding up, and it obviously has affected Sharna, who’s working her bottom off with Charlie each week. The two of them are still near the top of the leaderboard each week, but you can tell the harsh comments are beginning to wear on them. “We’re certainly trying to make them happy,” a diplomatic Charlie said backstage, “but sometimes it’s just one of those things where your personal preferences don’t line up. Having said that, moving forward, we are still going to try to get 10s from those judges, but it’s not the end all be all. I’m having a blast and loving every second. I don’t want not having a perfect score to detract from that in any way.” Added Sharna: “With great talent comes great expectations, and that’s my job. He’s doing absolutely everything he can do.” Clearly. I mean, Charlie was half-naked out there tonight. When I joked that Sharna would have to be next, she deadpanned, “I’m about at that point
ETA3: Also, Afterbuzz has uploaded their interviews. Note how Maks and Meryl comment that they have a Rumba next week (as we reported to you last night). Also the couples have TWO dances next week where have to dance to something with another couple. Also, Mark and Candace reveal they have a Foxtrot. Val and Danica have a Tango. Peta and James have a V. Waltz (as previously reported). Sharna and Charlie have a Quickstep (like we reported to you last night too).
ETA5: According to Amy Purdy at twitter, she has a rib out of place and her muscles are in spasm. She says, she’s “being very proactive in healing up” so she “can continue this journey.” We wish her a speedy recovery. Keep sending her your positive thoughts and prayers.
ETA6: Ok, I’ve just had some time to listen to all the On The Red Carpet interviews. Note that there will be TWO dances next week (if I’m understanding this right): the individual dance and also a Mini Team dance where each couple will dance with another couple, and then the pros will split apart to let the two celebs dance. They will get scored as a team and then those scores will be added to their individual scores. Note that (for what is being revealed so far) Amy & Derek and James & Peta will be paired together for the Mini Team dance. The interviews with Maks, Val, and Peta explain and let out the most information on it.
