The crowd went crazy! Carrie feels it was too contemporary with styling, they needed more Rumba. Len says the arms have to be more fluid. For someone with no dance background, she did well. Bruno says she dances from the heart and gives it everything she has. The Rumba is hard to do, it is fluid.

The next couples safe are Charlie and Sharna, James and Peta! James and Peta are doing the salsa! She wants to make him into an amazing dancer. He says he should wear less clothing since Len said he was the eye candy of the season.

They are both in all white! Peta has on a bra top with white feathers and criss cross straps to the extremely mini bottoms.
Bruno says James has come out of his shell and has the abs to prove it. Carrie says "DAAYYYYMN!" She was thinking there is a sexy hall of fame of the past, and with the dance they just did, he joined to hall of fame.

Karina and Sean are dancing the Salsa. He is working on his facial expressions. He wonders how people can walk around smiling all the time. It seems strange to him.

Karina is in a banana yellow ruffled tank top and a short skirt. Sean is in all black, pants and a henley top.
Bruno says when Sean smiles his persona changes. He was light on his feet, has rhythm but needs to work on his hips! Carrie says he is authentic, he is good for real. Len says the secret to DWTS is to get higher marks and each week he will if he keeps doing that!

Sean's smile is a hot topic tonight. Scores for Karina and Sean: Carrie 7 Len 7 Bruno 7, for a total of 21! We still do not know who is going home tonight!

Len thinks it could have been more tight but loved the moonwalk in the tango. Bruno says he can see they did a lot of work into it. He really liked what he saw!

Cody wanted to do the tango because his parents danced it at their wedding and he saw the video. Scores: Carrie 7 Len 7 Bruno 8! 22 out of 30 for them tonight!
