VIDEO: Corbin Bleu's Dance Called 'Best Routine in 17 Seasons' of DWTS!
After receiving their lowest score of the competition for their Viennese Waltz, Corbin Bleu and his partner Karina Smirnoff had to face the judges with a Traditional Waltz on this week's Dancing With the Stars. "We really want to cater to the judges," said Corbin of the couple's strategy this week. "Hopefully we can try to redeem ourselves."
Following the performance, Carrie Ann called the number close to perfection, but pointed out that they were not quite "on center."
Said Len, "Your dancing is like poetry in motion - it's a great number."
Declared Bruno, "I thought that was enchanting. Flawless musicality. For me it was breathtaking!"
The couple received a 28 out of 30 points.
For Part 2 of last night's competition, the Trio Dance, Corbin, Karina and Whitney Carson from the Dancing with the Stars dance troop choreographed a jazz number to Usher's hit, 'Yeah.' Commented Whitney, "Corbin is great. He did Broadway for a while so he had a lot of great ideas."
Following the number, which elicited a standing ovation from the judges, Carrie Ann declared, "That may be the best routine I've ever seen in all 17 seasons! Corbin, many people try to emulate Bob Fosse, and no one ever does it as good as Bob Fosse. I think you did what Bob Fosse would have done today and he would have loved you!"
"I was hoping for fireworks," teased Len, "You came out and exploded!"
Agreed Bruno, "Grand Master Corbin the Magnificent. For my generation, Bob Fosse was the absolute top. You lived up to that standard tonight and for a new generation, you keep his legacy alive!"
The couple received a Perfect Score of 30, bringing their total for the night to 58 points. They will move on to next week's semi-finals!
