‘DWTS’ Scorecard: Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake Steal the Show! (VIDEO)
With the coveted championship mirror ball trophy in sight, Rob Kardashian, Hope Solo, J.R. Martinez, and Ricki Lake all burned up their dance floor in hopes to move one step closer to the finale.
So how did the Final Four fare?
Rob Kardashian received his first ever 10 on the show! The judges rewarded Rob with a whopping 28 out of 30 for his first dance, the samba.
“Who are you? What was that? It was amazing … You didn’t miss anything,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba said, “It was fluid, it was fantastic.” Watch it below!
Ricki Lake wasn’t intimated by Rob’s high marks. The former talk show host wowed the judges with a sizzling hot performance of the samba. Len Goodman was not only dazzled by Ricki’s footwork, but he (along with the other judges) gave the former talk show host a perfect 10 — putting her in the top spot with 30/30.
However, tragedy struck as J.R. Martinez took to the dance floor. During his routine, J.R. twisted his ankle — resulting in a weaker routine. Len remarked:
“It was more zero than Zorro.”
Heading to his second dance with an injured ankle and a score of 23/30, J.R. stunned judges with a passionate routine of the Argentine tango.
“It had mood, it had intensity. I was transported to the backstreets of Buenos Aires … That’s the way to go,” Len gushed.
“When you were dancing it was like there was a true fire,” Carrie Ann added, “You commanded it.”
J.R. walked away with a 27/30 for his second routine.
Hope Solo also did not fare to well with the judges as all three thought her performance was shaky. Len thought her dance lacked “control and finesse” while Bruno it was missing artistic spirit:
Because you went so far for it, you were a bit unsteady. You have to combine the energy with the artistry.
The judges felt Hope could have done a little better with her first routine. They felt her dance was a little shaky and unbalanced.
“Because you went so far for it, you were a bit unsteady,” Bruno said, “You have to combine the energy with the artistry.”
However, the star hit maintained her cool for her second performance. With a much-improved rendition of the Argentine tango, she put herself back into the race with a score of 24/30.
Meantime, Rob finished strong with his second dance, earning a score of 27 — and he and Cheryl also nabbed 10 out of 10 points in the relay dance at the end to give a huge ending to a fabulous night for Rob.
