Carrie Ann: This was well suited for her. 

Len: She played homage to her roots and it was a job well done.

Bruno: He loved it.

Scores: Perfect score!!!!

Sammi: This was my favorite routine of the season and tonight reminds me why. It is fun, exciting, full of pep and made me smile from start to finish.  This is the ONLY dance where other dancers actually make sense. 

Carrie Ann: It was better this time around and it was spot on.

Len: He was leader of the pack and terrific.

Bruno: It was fantastic and beautiful to watch.

Scores: Perfect score!!!

Celebrity: Hannah Brown

Claim to Fame: Reigning Bachelorette

Pro: Alan Bersten 

Dance: Viennese Waltz

Sammi: I missed her initial version of this dance, but this one is pretty good. It’s flowy, dreamy and there is something special and innocent about it. I just don’t like the extra dancers. For a dance like this, it doesn’t really go. 

Len: The footwork was a bit suspect, but overall it was lovely and well done.

Bruno: She missed some footwork, but he liked it.  

Carrie Ann: (I missed her comments)

Score: 10-9-9=28 out of 30
