Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy‘s jive to “La Bamba” drew a wide range of reactions from the three usual judges and guest Donnie Young, with Len Goodman calling it “uneventful” and giving it a 6. Bruno Tonioli, meanwhile, said that “as entertainment, it was superb” and awarded the couple an 8. The 9 came from Young; Carrie Ann Inaba gave them a 7.
The score of 30 was one of the lower individual scores of the evening, but of course the judges’ tally alone doesn’t determine Alley’s fate. Take a look at the video and let us know what you think: At which end of the scale would you rate the dance?
