Derek and Amy are the last couple to dance freestyle tonight! Amy was born in Vegas, she was a Daddy's girl and at 19 she felt she was in control and when she contracted meningitis, she thought this is what it feels like to die and all she could think about was snowboarding again. She had no ideas what her legs would allow her to do. She never gave up. We are reminded about Carrie saying "I hope Disney makes their next princess like you!" Derek wants her to defy gravity in the freestyle!

Derek is in a white shirt and black capri pants. Amy is in a white dress, knee length flowing skirt with jeweled embellishments! Amy is spinning above the dance floor! The crowd went insane!

Len says it was a polished performance but the rope and spin was not needed. Bruno says it was beautiful and evolved. Carrie wondered why they had so many lifts, when she heard the chorus, she realized Amy was dancing with her soul. Amy says the rope and spinning was anti gravity!

Derek says the song is called "Dare you" and it was perfect for them. He loves being apart of the show! Scores 10 from Carrie and Bruno, 9 from Len. 29 out of 30. Len is getting booed! Amy says it is about getting out of your comfort zone and doing something new. After the break, someone will be eliminated from the competition. 3 will go on to tomorrow night.

All 4 teams are on the stage. The first couple dancing tomorrow night are Meryl and Maks. The second couple is Amy and Derek! James and Peta, Candace and Mark are in jeopardy, James is the last man standing in the competition! The couple leaving tonight is, James and Peta.

The crowd is shocked! The stars are shocked! James says it was incredible and he has made friends to last a lifetime. Peta says that he was an amazing partner.
