VIDEO: Corbin Bleu Comes Back Strong on This Week's DANCING WITH THE STARS
After receiving their lowest score of the competition last week, Corbin Bleu and his partner Karina Smirnoff struggled in rehearsals for this week's Cha-Cha. By Friday, the couple was still working on choreography for the dance. "I'm smiling," shared Bleu during Friday's rehearsal, "But in the back of my mind it's stressing me out!"
Despite their nerves, the couple danced a brilliant Cha-Cha which prompted Bruno to declare, "Crystal clear moves, the timing, the shape, the finish - immaculate, brilliant!"
Agreed Carrie Ann, "The tightest Cha-Cha I've ever seen! We could have put a quarter in there and never see it again. It was hot!"
Said Len, "I'm not a fan of the gyrating, it's somewhere between rap music and a baby crying - I can't wait for it to be over," but quickly added, "having said that, it fit in beautifully with the music - excellent Cha-Cha!"
The couple earned a score of 29 including 10's from Carrie Ann and Bruno. Added to their score this week was an additional 30 points for winning the team competition in the evening's second round of the dance. Their team, dubbed "Foxing Awesome," danced a crowd-pleasing number to the Youtube viral tune, 'What Does the FOX Say?'.
Corbin and Karina will now advance to next week's round of competition which will feature guest judge Cher!
