VIDEO: Corbin Bleu Channels 'Game of Thrones' on DWTS
DANCING WITH THE STARS, ABC
Corbin Bleu and his partner Karina Smirnoff danced the Viennese Waltz on last night's DANCING WITH THE STARS on ABC. The 'High School Musical' star was thrilled to find out they would be performing their number to the theme song from HBO's Game of Thrones. "It's is my favorite show on television right now!, gushed the actor.
Following the performance, Bruno critiqued, "This really was melodrama, but Corbin your lines,..You were playing it like Conan the Barbarian - I was expecting that immaculate finish from you."
Disagreed Carrie Ann, "Game of Thrones is a raw, sexy show. I think that what you did lived up to those standards - I thought it worked - the passion told the story."
Added Len, "I loved the theme that runs through it. But there was nothing in the ballroom hold. As much as I thought it was a wonderful interpretation, I really didn't feel that it was a Viennese Waltz."
The couple received a 23 from the judges.
This week, the show included a brand new round of competition called the live improvisational 'Switch Up Challenge' in which the couples competed against each other while dancing to four different types of music that would be randomly changed as they performed. Corbin and Karina won their round of competition and received an additional 4 points to their score. They will move on to next week's round of competition.
