2 points for Bill and Emma, 3 points for Jack and Cheryl, 4 points for Corbin and Karina, 5 points for Amber and Derek! Freestyle round is up next!

Bill and Em are doing an Indiana Jones themed dance. Emma calls this the mega mix of everything he has learned this season. It is her first freestyle so she wants to throw everything in! He hesitates because of his groin injury. He doesn't want to hesitate on the dancefloor and something happen to Emma. She says that is nice of him. She still pushes him!

Bill is dressed as Indiana Jones. It is all very dramatic with a computer generated mirror ball rolling down the stairs at him. Emma looks like a refined Lara Croft in a sleeveless white blouse and tan pants with a sort of holster around her shoulders and back. It was very entertaining and dramatic. Bill is yelling "WE DID IT!"

Bill ripped his shirt off, Carrie just about fell off her chair laughing. Len says he may have lost his ark but not the ability to entertain. He thoroughly enjoyed it. Bruno says it was insanely good fun! Carrie says "You are every mans man who can become a dancer!" Scores Carrie 8 Len 9! Bruno 8! They are thrilled with the 9! Their first of the season!

They are looking at acrobatics, new moves! They are using some troop members for a new trick. It is really difficult.

Dressed in matching silver and blue suits like MJ had in Smooth Criminal. The troop comes out and they do a flying trick. They jump up the stairs and dance diagonally, with out support it is really amazing!

Amber and Derek are the final couple to perform freestyle. Derek is looking for that special thing to take them to the top. He looks at putting some stepping in the routine as Amber is good at it. He has never done it before. They bring dancers in from the troop. It is a country western dance with no line dancing!
Cowboys everywhere! Amber stands out dressed in purple pants and shirt with a gold corset over top. The step sequence in the dance is impressive. It is definitely a "go big or go home" routine!
