Sammi: Sixties? Who cares? She rocked that dance like nobody’s business. I hate when people think others can’t do something due to age, it is so ignorant. Marilu rocked that dance and simply amazed me from start to finish, despite a few missteps. Derek truly knew what he was doing with that choreography.
Carrie Ann: She liked it, but there were mistakes.
Julianne: It was hot and sexy, but she needs to stop second guessing herself.
Bruno: He agrees that she did well, but needs to stop with the second guessing.
