So far, there hasn’t been many interviews released after the show (yet?). Though for starters, we did find this George Pennacchio ABC7 recap with a few new interviews in it. You can watch it at ABC7. Below is also some interview quotes….
When it came to the dancing, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, scored the season’s first triple 10s for a Cha Cha that head judge Len Goodman called “hip-notic.”
“Oh my gosh, I couldn’t believe I was seeing it when those paddles went around. It was very exciting, very exciting,” said Berkley Lauren.
They got the only perfect score of the night but ended the evening tied for first place because of the “switch-up challenge.”
The eight teams were divided into two groups to dance for extra points without knowing what songs would be playing. The challenge lifted Amber Riley and Derek Hough from second place to tying for first.
“I was just like, I’m going to have fun and try to make it look like I know what I’m doing and stay committed. And that’s what I did because I definitely had no idea what I was doing,” said Riley.
Brant Daugherty and Peta Murgatroyd ended the evening in third place, followed by a fox-trotting Nicole Polizzi and Sasha Farber.
“I’m not a ballroom dancer, and the fact that they’re saying my lines are pretty and, you know, I’m somewhat pulling this off, it means a lot to me,” said Polizzi.
