Tonight was crazy! There were so many amazing dances! I loved Nick and Sharna’s Jazz routine and felt like I had flashed back to the 90s.

Alek and Lindsay’s dance was so moving and my heart goes out to everyone in his hometown.

Bindi and Derek didn’t dance until the end and yet I was in tears every time they showed a preview of her package. Her dance was beautiful and I was in tears the whole time. She and Derek did an absolutely stunning job.

On a happier note, I would like to congratulate Allison Holker on her pregnancy and also Witney Carson on her engagement. Congrats ladies!

Unfortunately it is a competition and there does have to be an elimination. The two couples in jeopardy this week were Carlos & Witney and Gary & Anna.

The couple eliminated was Gary & Anna.

Next week the couples will be switching partners and I have no doubt that’ll be an interesting turn of events!
