I loved Frankie’s & Lindsey’s routines and thought they both did fantastic.

Sasha & Gleb’s routine I found to be a bit confusing. Usually my opinion on the dances goes as far as “that was good” or “I didn’t really like it”. Why? Because I have no dancing qualifications of my own. But I agree with the judges on this one, I kept waiting for the dance to actually start, but the whole thing was just them doing synchronized moves next to each other. Interesting, but pretty risky for a dance competition.

There was no elimination after Week Three which I’m sure was a relief to all the stars, but now they had to get ready for Week Four: “Most Memorable Year”

It also meant the second elimination of the season.

This time, Nick & Peta and Debbie & Alan were the couples in jeopardy and, unfortunately, Debbie & Alan were sent home.

I think we will definitely see all the couples bringing it more than ever next week, particularly the couples who were in jeopardy (Nick & Peta, Terrell & Cheryl), and who pulled through to the next round.

Were you surprised by the elimination on Tuesday? Who are you rooting for?

Poor Keo just can’t catch a break can he?
