PureDWTS Season 24 Week 4 – Media, Interviews, Scores, Week 5 Hints, And More

What a night on Dancing With The Stars. The couples were all so good. I usually have an idea who might win the season by now, but, not this time? Unreal. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ If you’d like to relive the dances again, see Idolxfactor’s New Tumbler Page (these videos work Internationally) or the official Dancing With The Stars You Tube.

So, let’s review the scores again. I have to say…. I was so happy for Rashad and Emma receiving almost all 10’s last night….

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater: Scores of 10-9-10-10 from the judges for a total of 39.
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber: Scores of 9-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 36.
Heather Morris and Alan: Scores of 8-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 35.
Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev: Scores of 8-9-8-8 from the judges for a total of 33.
Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess: Scores of 8-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 32.
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: Scores of 8-7-8-9 from the judges for a total of 32.
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold: Scores of 7-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 31.
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd: Scores of 8-7-8-7 from the judges for a total of 30.

For media starters, see People for all of their recaps and interviews and keep checking the link through out the day. ET also has a recap and a few interviews.

Glamour doesn’t have any new information on next week, but, I loved this bit on Mr. T for what happened last week. So deserving. I’m going to miss him and Kym….

After a tear-soaked couple of hours, Tom Bergeron delivered the tough news that Mr. T would be leaving the competition. While Mr. T certainly wasn’t a strong dancer by any means, he had captured the hearts of millions and was probably the most beloved contestant I’ve seen on this show in my eight seasons of covering it. In fact, last week the crew gave him a personalized “The People’s Trophy” after all the other contestants had gone home. Mr. T posed with every single member of the crew and gave them more in return than they could have ever expected. I’ve never seen grown men so excited to be around any celebrity, and goodness knows this show has seen a lot of them.

More at Glamour and note that it’s Disney Week next (in case you missed this info on the show last night).

Fox411 interviewed Erika Jayne after she danced.

Jayne continued to flaunt her sexiness on Monday night’s fourth week of “DWTS” competition, earning a score of 30 out of 40 with partner Gleb Savchenko for a cha cha tribute to Madonna’s “Express Yourself.”

Hers was one of the lowest scores of the night and Judge Len Goodman sighed that Jayne’s dance was “same old, same old. You go down that sexy route.” (She wound up in the bottom two with Mr. T, but “The A-Team star was the one eliminated on Monday).

Jayne was undeterred, telling FOX411, “I performed my ass off and will continue to do so next week. Whatever happens, happens. Let the chips fall where they may.”

She said of her over-the-top sexy style, “Some people love it, some people don’t, and that’s their choice.”

Fox411 also talked with the other couples. Here’s a take with Rashad which is making me cry again.

Jennings had been offered college football scholarships at the time, but immediately went home to care for his family during the dark time.

At the end of the dance, Jennings hugged his wheelchair-bound father as his mother and the rest of the “DWTS” audience gave them a standing ovation.

Afterwards, Jennings told FOX411 that Albert had given up alcohol and now, “We’re the best friends and have so much fun with each other.” Still, he admitted reliving their struggle onstage was “raw, real, authentic.

“This was so much more than a dance. This was truly my emotions.”
