Dancing With the Stars Episode 4 Fantasy Recap: Most Memorable Year

On Dancing With the Stars Episode 4 we got to experience the softer side of our celebrities. By choosing a song that represented their Most Memorable Year (MMY), their emotions shined through as they danced from their heart. In my opinion THIS is what dancing, learning to dance, enjoying dance, is ALL about. Yes, they were given scores based upon the technical aspects of each individual dance. But no, there’s not one story nor one heart that’s better than another. If only there was a “freebie” week on the show.

I promised myself I would refrain from anything too mean, too crazy, too picky this week. It’s truly all about dancing from the heart. Sure there are technical aspects of dancing, but what you feel is what matters at the end of the day. That’s why I’ve been teaching for close to 10 years – dancing brings out our beauty within. It TRULY changes lives.

As such, I’ve chosen NOT to tier the dancers, letting my critique and thoughts be as is. Onto the reviews and fantasy scoring…

Mr. T & Kym Herjavec

Waltz – “Amazing Grace” by Ray Chew Live

MMY – 1995 – Being diagnosed with cancer.

Scores : (7, 7, 7, 7) = 28 Fantasy Points (FPs)

Kym did a lot of carrying here, but the emotion of Mr. T really poured though — technical difficulties withstanding.  As Carrie Ann said, his inspirational efforts are truly winning over our hearts, even if he can’t stack up to the levels of competition in this crazy field.  Slow with minimal movement, but packed with heart — pretty much sums Mr. T up all season.

Simone Biles & Sasha Farber

Viennese Waltz – “Good Good Father” by Chris Tomlin

MMY – 2000 – When she was adopted.

Scores : (9, 9, 9, 9) = 36 FPs

I’m bawling. I just absolutely love this girl. If you haven’t read up about her life story in full than you should. She’s in this for the long haul. Is she going to win? It’s still VERY possible. An absolutely beautiful routine. She showed a far more vulnerable side. She’s always been one of my favorites, and tonight only furthered this.

Bonner Bolton & Sharna Burgess

Foxtrot – “Feeling Good” by Michael Bublé

MMY – 2016 – The year he was paralyzed after a bull riding accident.

Scores : (8, 8, 8, 8) = 32 FPs

What a moving story! He really can do ANYTHING! He’s progressing week by week and showing that he’s serious about this dancing business. His footwork, yes Len, I agree, not the best; Bonner just needs to continue working on rolling through his feet. He’s still one of my favorites this season!

Erika Jayne & Gleb Savchenko

Cha Cha – “Express Yourself” by Madonna

MMY – 1989 – The year she moved to New York City.

Scores : (8, 7, 7, 8) = 30 FPs

I told myself I wouldn’t say anything evil this week about Erika. So… I absolutely loved her song! I loved her outfit! And yes, she puts on a show! She needs to work on distinguishing herself from the pack. Len is correct, she needs to showcase some quality dancing rather than just going for the sex appeal each week. (But do you see who her partner is?!) It’s possible that next week we say goodbye to Erika.

Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater

Contemporary – “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry

MMY – 2006 – Transferring to a different school so he could be closer to family.

Scores : (10, 9, 10, 10) = 39 FPs

That was INCREDIBLE! I think we just saw one of, if not THE best dance we will see this season. The emotion that Rashad emitted through his movement was breathtaking. I agree with the judges – the vulnerability that he shows is invaluable in the competition. I haven’t seen much weakness in his dancing this season, is Rashad unstoppable? Perhaps. If you have him on your fantasy team than you should be celebrating right about now.

Nancy Kerrigan & Artem Chigvintsev

Foxtrot – “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts

MMY – 1996 – The year her first son was born.

Scores : (8, 9, 8, 8) = 33 FPs

What a beautiful woman inside and out! Nancy has been through so much and to see her float across the ballroom floor is true testament to NEVER GIVE UP. What lines Nancy shows us each week. She truly knows how to elongate herself. It was a beautiful story told through movement. A bump or two but she and Artem really are one of the best partnerships this season. She deserved more 9’s. Is Nancy on the rise? I think so. Look for her to continue on in the competition for at least a few more weeks!

Normani Kordei & Val Chmerkovskiy

Rumba – “Impossible” by Shontelle

MMY – 2012 – Joining Fifth Harmony.

Scores : (8, 7, 8, 9) = 32 FPs

Absolutely gorgeous attire for Normani on this routine. I loved seeing her sing along – you can tell she loves what she does! Technically speaking we’ve seen this from Normani all season – she’s consistent! I agree with Len that we need to see some more content from her. She’s ready to step it up a notch. Rumba can be sensual, softer, and I would’ve liked to have seen a bit more in that regard to arms. Overall, she’s continuing to dance her way to the top tier each week!  (Carrie Ann is a buzz kill as the lift police!)

Heather Morris & Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Cha Cha – “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon

MMY – 2015 – When she got married.

Scores : (8, 9, 9, 9) =  35 FPs

What a romantic story Heather shared with us! Heather is WAY more fun now that she’s paired with Allan. They’re chemistry and personalities blend in such a positive way. Heather showed how a Cha Cha is done – sharp, fun, playful, hip action, rhythmical – she had it all! I agree with Carrie Ann that as we get to know Heather more she’s showing us her softer side. That she can do this. I’m seeing a more relaxed dancer come out of her

David Ross & Lindsay Arnold

Viennese Waltz – “Forever Young” by Youth Group

MMY – 2016 – Winning the World Series.

Scores : (7, 8, 8, 8) = 31 FPs

David, a man with many many fans all around the world! His attitude, his personality, his grace make him a perfect fit for this show. Watching him dance and come out of his shell this season has been wonderful. Still, I don’t believe this was his best dance. He was choppy and it wasn’t the smoothest we’ve seen of David. He should continue to work on this as the weeks progress.

Nick Viall & Peta Murgatroyd

Rumba – “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran

MMY – Meeting Vanessa on The Bachelor.

Scores : (8, 7, 8, 7) – 30

One forgets Nick has been through MULTIPLE seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette – let’s hope for his sake this one lasts! His song choice – ironic or just extremely fitting – fitting meaning his pants fit really well – his body… oh my I’ve become distracted! By far his BEST dance of the competition. He did show much more emotion in his movements and portrayed a much more relaxed persona on the floor. I would’ve given him a higher score, not just because of his outfit choice, but his progress is showing.

Elimination…

Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Mr. T this week! And a WELL DESERVED standing ovation he got. He will be very missed in the ballroom! He defines what this show is about, hands down.

Simply Shamus Goes Serious – another name for this weeks recap! I think the next two weeks of the competition are going to tell us a lot. Normani, Heather, Simone and Rashad all remain in my top four. Who’s on the way out? I think time is almost out for Erika, Nick and Bonner! I just don’t see them ousting any in my top four. Time will tell.

Next week the heat is ON! Looking forward to “Disney Week!”
