Carrie Ann Inaba writes on her top three performances last night on Dancing With The Stars at Access Hollywood. She also posted some photos from “behind the scenes”.
Antonio and Sharna’s Aladdin-themed Jazz routine was absolutely incredible…”Boomin” to be exact. It’s not easy to come right out of the gate, perform first of the night and gather 9s the way he did, especially after being at the bottom of the leaderboard just last week. I believe he has found his sweet spot. He was easily the coolest male performer of the week and their dance set the standard high for the rest of the night. Antonio was clean and sharp, slick and cool, and worked well with the men who danced with them. Sharna was very clever in putting a performance together that played to his incredible skills as a team player. He gets my vote for most improved as well as best male performance of the night.
Ginger and Val’s Beauty and the Beast was nearly flawless. The staging, the costumes, the choreography but really, that hold! When she got into hold, her posture was incredible, the hold was magnificent and her lines were so refined. She brought Belle to life in a way that I could see the kids in the audience reacting as if they were at Disneyland watching a live show. It was magical.
Finally, Paige and Mark’s Toy Story themed Quickstep proved that Paige is the one to beat at this point. She’s been on top of the leaderboard for two weeks in a row now. Mark’s choreography really shines with Paige as his partner, they are a match made in DWTS-heaven, that’s for sure.
