For Iconic Dance Week on “Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars,” Shawn Johnson and partner Derek Hough chose to do a quickstep to “Hey Pachucho,” which was originally done by Helio Castronoves and Julianne Hough on Season 5.
However, Shawn and Derek put their own twist on the dance, breaking about 1000 rules in the process, but impressing the judges and the audience to no end. Seriously, it was crazypants.
Bruno says, “Spectacular, unforgettable. This is a classic. One of the best dances, if not the best dance I’ve seen, in 15 seasons. You broke the rules, but my God, I’m never gonna forget this.”
Carrie Ann just “woo’d” a lot, while Len adds, “It was amazing. Your ability to interpret music into movement was incredible and please don’t think I don’t appreciate how fantastic this was … I’ve never enjoyed a routine more. I have to be honest [with the scoring].”
Len means that because they broke the rules, he has to dock them a point. So the judges ended up giving them a 9 (Carrie Ann), 8 (Len) and 9.5 (Bruno) for a 26.5
