Pitbull was tonight’s special guest judge and kicked off the show with a performance of his hit single “Fireball”. Also with actress Leah Remini as a special guest host.
The remaining Top 8 danced to various Pitbull songs and chart topping hits that brought the entire audience to their feet. Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas gave a beautiful Rumba to the hit song “Diamonds”. “It was a little bit of a challenge at first…I wanted to find the perfect balance between being appropriate and still be doing the right dance and I feel like I did that” said Ballas. Ending with a total score of 35.
And topping the leader board this week is Alfonso Riberio and Witney Carson. Despite both suffering from injuries they Salsa-ed their way through JLo’s hit “Booty” giving a killer performance! “Infectious, vibrant, vitality, eye-popping…I’ve could’ve danced all night” said a very enthusiastic Bruno Tonioli. Finishing off the night with a score of 39.
The bottom two teams were Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy and Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker. The ballroom had to say goodbye to Jonathan and Allison this week. “I came to this show to have a really great experience….and I can’t thank Allison enough and I had the best time of my life!” said Jonathan.
