Dancing With the Stars Season 21 Recap 11/2/15 – Who Was Eliminated? Who Received Immunity
“Dancing With the Stars” is in the eighth week of competition and only seven contestants remain; Bindi Irwin, Alek Skarlatos, Alexa PenaVega and her husband Carlos PenaVega, Andy Grammer, Nick Carter and Tamar Braxton, continue to dance their hearts out, hoping to make it another week. This week their dance scores can get them immunity since the dance couple with the highest score will receive immunity and the couple with the lowest combined scores from the judges and from viewers will be eliminated.
Last week was all about Halloween with amazing dances – especially with Derek and Bindi topping the leaderboard while Carlos and Witney very close behind. Judge Julianne Hough admitted that she was turned on by Andy Grammer’s sexy vampire routine and he looked pretty amazing. Which couples will end up getting immunity? We will have to watch and see.
We have the complete recap for the Halloween Episode of Dancing With the Stars here.
For the first time this season, the couple with the highest score from their solo dance will be granted immunity from elimination next week and will also receive 3 additional points. Each of the six couples that do not receive immunity will then be paired up to compete in a head-to-head dance-off to be voted on by America in real-time on www.abc.com and by the three judges. The couple with the majority of the four potential votes from each dance-off will earn an extra 2 points, increasing their overall score.
There will also be individual dances where the seven remaining couples will be dancing as they give a tribute to influential figures in their lives. Are you ready for this week and who do you think will be sent home? Nails are breaking, dancers are in pain and it just seems like this is taking a toll on everyone, which is understandable. Keep reading to see what happens as we head into another week of dancing!
Erin Andrews is back after Leah Remini had filled it for her and did a great job. Now, here are the songs for each pair, scores and what judges Bruno, Carrie Ann and Julianne:
Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold- feels like he disappointed a lot of fans as being a hero and he needs to be reminded of that. His hero is Chris Kyle and wants to honor him and Taya, Chris’ widow says that Alek is much like her late husband. Alek and Lindsay went to the World Series and the hope is that all the accolades he received will help him.
Song: “Holding Out For A Hero” by Ella Mae Bowen/Bonnie Tyler
Judges Comments: Bruno: impossible to judge him after all that he has done, a power of strength, made a small mistake but beautiful job; Carrie Ann: bit simple but excellent; Julianne: worked with his strengths but wanted to see more side by side combos.
Total Score: 9, 8, 8=25
Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas- “David and Goliath” inspired Alexa’s dance this week. David conquered the giant and this show is her giant. She says her faith has a lot to do with how she takes on everything including the dances.
Song: “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay
Dance: Argentine Tango
Judges Comments: Alexa apologizes to Mark for tripping and feels so bad. Julianne: so much intensity, all in her face but she fought through the slips that she had; Bruno: started epically and was a huge risk but did make a few mistakes that stood out; Carrie Ann: saw the mistakes but thought it was epic.
Total Score: 9, 8, 8=25
