Monday night on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, the stars were shining as the remaining 10 contestants and their partners told stories through dance. Alternating between the Week 3 dances- the waltz, foxtrot and the samba- several of the contestants showed vast improvement this week, while others still need to work on their foot work.
After Judge Bruno Tonioli’s Michael Bolton bashing last week, the contestants had every reason to be a little on edge as they prepared for Story Night. But it was actually Len Goodman who dished out the nastiest critiques this week, telling The Situation that if he were dancing in his backyard he’d “draw the curtains”. Len also dissed Florence Henderson’s footwork, saying it was “non-existent”.
As for pro dancer Tony Dovolani’s pledge to wax his legs if he and partner Audrina Patridge didn’t score triple 8’s last week(they didn’t, thanks to Bruno’s score of a “7”), did he make good on his promise? Yes- and the tape doesn’t lie.
But the highlight of the night was Audrina Patridge’s beautiful waltz with Dovolani. The dance earned the couple the first 9 of the season and the highest total score of the night with 26 out of 30.
Here’s how all of the contestants scored on week 3 of Dancing With the Stars Season 11.
