There was a lot of improvement amongst the couples tonight, particularly with Kim and Tony. Bruno even went so far as to describe Kim’s comeback as “the most unexpected comeback since Lazarus”.

Meanwhile, Andy Grammer wins the award for best response ever when asked what went wrong during his dance by Carrie Ann. Andy’s response? “Dancing is hard!” Yes Andy, yes it is. That’s why I don’t do it, I just sit on my couch and recap all of you dancing.

Of course, this is DWTS which means someone has to go home. This week there were two couples in jeopardy: Chaka and Keo, and Gary and Anna.

This season on Dancing With the Stars, Chaka and Keo were the first couple to go home.
