Brandy and Maks stole the night on Dancing with the Stars week 6 Rock Week. Not only did team Bran DMC finished in first place in the judges scores for the second week in a row, Brandy and Max also took first place in the night’s Rock n Roll marathon elimination. Wow!!
Brandy and Maks have been in the top third of the dance teams, consistently since the beginning of season 11. As Dancing with the Stars rounds the halfway point in the season, team Bran DMC is emerging as the team to beat.
Pro dancer Maks Chemerkovskiy has proven himself to be a hard task master, pushing Brandy to the limits of tears on several occasions. The ‘Bad Boy of Ballroom Dancing’, has yet to win the coveted mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars, coming in 2nd place in season 5 with Mel B. Maks has finished in third place in season 4 with partner Laila Ali and again last season with Erin Andrews.
Maks was chastised during week three for smacking Brandy on the bottom during practice. Judge Len Goodman told the pro he didn’t believe in that type of coaching. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba motioned Maks over to the judges’ platform and gave him a playful smack warning him to keep his hands to himself. Still team Bran DMC received a score of 24 for the night.
Maks and Brandy finished in first place on the scoreboard in week five dancing the quick step to the theme from Friends. The pair received a score of 9’s across the board from the judges for a total of 27 points.
Week 6 saw the pair out of breath performing the tango. The judges awarded the pair a 26 with Len telling Maks, “You are my hero; this is the best dance of the night”. The second dance competition of the night saw team Bran DMC return as the winners of the Rock n Roll Marathon Elimination.
Brandy has proven herself to be a hard worker and a talent on her own. Combined with Maks discipline and quest for the mirror ball trophy team Bran DMC just might be the team that takes it all.
