Dancing With The Stars Results Recap: Patriotic Dances

It was a patriotic night on Tuesday’s episode of Dancing With The Stars. Each of the 8 contestants performed to songs about America. The best of the night was Hines Ward. The football star took first place with 27 points for his rumba to “Proud to be an American.” Carrie Ann Inaba praised Hines for his hip action while Bruno Tonioli loved the “ease of movement” throughout the routine.

Chelsea Kane, Chris Jericho and Romeo tied in second place with 26 points each. Len Goodman loved Chelsea’s samba, but pointed out one mistake at the end. Bruno loved the “party energy” and “sizzle” that Chelsea displayed. Bruno also had praise for Chris’s Viennese waltz. He said Chris was “big yet graceful, strong yet delicate of touch, elegant, with a sweeping sense of romance.” Romeo danced the fox trot and earned accolades from Len, who called the rapper a “charming chap.” Carrie Ann praised Romeo for his “unique style.”

Kirstie Alley managed to avoid mishaps in her fox trot. She called in John Travolta for help during rehearsals. Travolta advised Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy to show some sexual tension on the dance floor and the pair took his advice. They delivered a hot fox trot that had Bruno declaring them the “American woman and the Russian gigolo.”

Petra Nemcova, Ralph Macchio and Kendra Wilkinson tied in fourth place with 22 points each. Petra received mixed reviews for her quickstep. Bruno described Petra as a “golden goddess of speed” while Carrie Ann felt the supermodel was “a little out of sync.” Ralph performed a samba that Len said “lacked a lot of rhythm.” Carrie Ann wanted him to put a more sexual spin on the routine. Kendra’s fox trot was an improvement from last week, according to Len. Bruno called the dance “sweet as apple pie.”
