Robin says she is a long time viewer, first time judge and this is all surreal. She would be at home tweeting her thoughts and to experience the live atmosphere is unreal. She thanks everyone. She jokes the studio is smaller than she thought it would be.

Tonight, the stars dance in memory of the most memorable year of their lives. James is up first. He tells us when he was younger he was chubby and wasn't in shape. He got picked on a lot. He felt the world was against him. He had to switch school and 2007 was his most memorable year. He was able to move forward and got in to Big Time Rush. They are dancing the jive!

Billy Dee's grand kids are walking out to the dance floor to hug him.

Nene is dancing a Rumba for her second marriage to her first husband! Tony felt bad about the comments last week. She wasn't bothered by it. She tells us she walked down the aisle to "I believe in you and me" by Whitney Houston. She filed for divorce after the lust was gone from the marriage. 2013 was her year, she married Greg for the second time "He is the one."

Nene is in a black, long sleeved dress with sheer sleeves, long skirt that is slit in several sections, looks like a gypsy. Tony is shirtless in black pants.

Nene and Greg hug when the dance is done. Robin says Len said it best "You got this party started" She says it was sensual and beautiful. Bruno calls her the Southern Siren. He says it is difficult to maintain the flow of movement and she did it very well. Carrie says "I know I have been giving you a hard time with the arms, you were as large as your heart, it was passionate and loved it and your arms!" Len says it wasn't overly raunchy, very tasteful, well done! Scores after the break!

They are dancing a Jazz routine. Witney is in a blue 40's style short and bikini top. Cody is in a matching blue polo style shirt and cream color pants.

Bruno says "So right here so right now!" Carrie says it was ridiculous, the vocabulary of movement, she was eating it up. Len says Well, it is right up your alley, it was tight, together, well done! Robin says she loves his style, he is respectful of the dance but makes it his own!

Connor joins his Dad at the judges panel. Len says it was a nice dance, a little muddled in parts. It was charming though. Robin says she would be booing Len at home. Drew has been a pleasant and marvelous surprise this season and he has blown her away. Bruno says that he loved the fact that they went for a classic waltz. Only one mistake. Smart and elegant. Carrie says she felt he was more intense and it lost some of the ease and emotion that he usually has when he dances. Conner says he thinks Drew did really good and wants Cheryl to teach him some of those moves!

Erin jokes about Connor hitting on Cheryl at such a young age. Scores: Carrie 7, Len 7, Robin 8, Bruno 8. 30 out of 40 tonight!
