They kicked off the night with a Argentine Tango, and though the judges loved it (9s from Len and Carrie and 10 from Bruno), their Rumba blew it out of the water.
Set to Blue Foundation‘s “Eyes on Fire” (probably best known for appearing on “Twilight” soundtrack), the dramatic Rumba was the perfect combination of storytelling and choreography. They got their first 30 of the season.
That left them in a bit behind Hines Ward and Kym Johnson at the first two rounds of scoring — but that that changed the during the instant dance tournament, which saw them take the night’s “Winner Takes It All” payload of 15 extra points.
But more importantly, they continued to show something they’ve brought to every performance since the premiere. Chelsea Kane has a lot of fun out there. And as talented as her competitors may be, even the best of them look like they’re concentrating on the moves while they’re out there on the floor. Chelsea just dances.
And you can add her Rumba and Argentine Tango as other shining examples of that.
