Totally!  I've been really impressed with Keo these past few seasons, he's really supportive of his partners.  I've always liked him but in the past he's had a tendency to outdance and overpower his partner.  He seems to have calmed down and really focused on making his partners look good.

Jennie and Keo: I agree with all that has been said.

Missed Kareem's dancing, had to answer the phone.

Kareem and Lindsay: Rashad and CAI scored it too high. Len and Bruno were more realistic. Kareem's a sweetie but could well depart tonight. But Lindsay, wow, that young lady is simply a choreography superstar. So inventive and creative.

Kareem & Lindsay: If he's not one of the two going tonight, ugh idk.  The nice things I can say are that Lindsay is and will always be one of my favorite choreographers, that coat trick was hilarious and genius. Major props to Hayley, who's only been doing Latin and ballroom for about three years, for dancing salsa while blind and with Lindsay on her shoulders Thumbs up!

Chris and Witney: I loved it. Well done Chris and Witney. Much better than last week. Great scores although my mouth  dropped open at the 9.

I was surprised at the 9 too although I loved the dance and I find him very enjoyable to watch.

Chris & Witney: I thought Carrie Ann would nail them for Witney's foot coming off the floor Confused to be fair, in her mind Josh and Kareem were equal Rolling Eyes.  Overall, nice dance with lots of dancing in hold but a little unpolished for a 9.

Josh and Kareem are opposite ends of the spectrum in dancing.

Tonya & Sasha: Very funny and entertaining, nice to see them do an upbeat dance after last week's emotional foxtrot.  Her frame was pretty sloppy though and you could drive a wall between them.  Waaaay overscored, Mirai and Adam better get 9s and 10s tonight.

Arike and Gleb: Tonight Arike was so elegant and graceful. I doubt the shoes made all the difference, Gleb saw what was there and drew it out of her.

Arike & Gleb: Love her message about women athletes.  Her frame was solid, she made no mistakes and she looked beautiful.  A bit start and stop but pretty good overall.  A little overscored but by now the judges probably realized they overscored certain people earlier and are doing damage control.

Adam & Jenna: Wow!  Who are these two?  Kind of reminds me of Jordan & Lindsay's quickstep in a way, with the speed, footwork and the parts out of hold.  Just amazing considering his schedule.  So happy Adam and Mirai got their well-deserved 9s and 10s!
