PureDWTS Season 21 Week 8 Media And Interviews – Scores, Videos, And More

Well, can I just start off by saying, I loved Bindi & Derek and Nick & Sharna’s dances the most last night. No one else could compare in my opinion. I would have given them BOTH 30’s! I’m a little out put with Bruno and Julianne not giving Derek and Bindi 10’s. Just please, TPTB, don’t let this be the start of the manipulations. The season is going so well and that will just ruin it. Ok, so, let’s review the scores anyway…

Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess 10-10-10-3 33 total
Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson 9-9-9-2 29 total
Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough 10-9-9 28 total
Tamar Braxton & Valentin Chmerkovskiy 9-9-10 28 total
Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas 9-8-8-2 27 total
Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold 9-8-8 25 total
Andy Grammer & Allison Holker* 8-7-7-2 24 total *eliminated*

I hated to see Andy and Allison be eliminated. I’ll always remember his compassion for life and sharing his story and grief with us on Dancing With The Stars. Don’t miss him and Allison on The View and Good Morning America today.

In media and interviews, see E Online first for their coverage and interviews. I’d embed them, but, they mess up the page for how they stop and go. For lots of coverage with Derek and Bindi, see Pure Derek Hough. Note that Derek left right after the show last night. He was sick and Bindi said he went home to rest up and try and get better.

Entertainment Tonight:

From FOX11 (be sure to read the link for more):

“My goal was to deliver a performance that could be frozen in time so that when my child goes back, he says, ‘Well, dad really loved mom and he did that for her and for me,'” Carter said. “When you’re in love and you really care about someone and they’ve done nothing but be the best thing for you and made you a better person, you want to just stand on the mountaintop and scream it out loud.”

The boy band veteran, who has admitted having problems with his famous family, noted backstage that having a baby will give him “an opportunity to right the wrongs, do better than past situations and I feel comfortable and safe because I know my wife will be a great mother … together, with our love, we’ll be able to create a child that has nothing but love and dreams.”

But he wasn’t the only one having an emotional time on Monday, as Alek Skarlatos’ fellow train heroes Spencer Stone and Anthony Sadler cheered him on from the “DWTS” audience.

The two watched Skarlatos score 25 for his contemporary dance with Lindsay Arnold that honored his icon, “America Sniper” Chris Kyle.

Stone, who was hospitalized after being stabbed in a bizarre Sacramento fracas last month, told FOX411 after the show, “I’m doing good. I’m walking, I’m alive. I can’t ask for much more. I got out of the hospital a couple of weeks ago. I’ve just been at home recovering, trying to get better. It will take awhile but I’m getting there day by day.”

Sadler told FOX411, “Alek did amazing. He survived another week. I’ve been hanging around all day … they have a lot of fun here. I wish I was in it, too.”
