All three couples performed their favorite dances, and each couple received three 10s for perfect scores of 30, Then each created a fusion dance of two styles with only 24 hours to put it together, Lindsey and Mark did a cha cha/tango, Frankie and Witney performed a foxtrot/tango, and Jordan and Lindsay danced a salsa/paso doble, Frankie and Witney received crochet baby girl 0-3mo ribbon tie up ballet shoes slippers & headband set- custom made to order- a 10 and two 9s, and the others each received three 10s, After each pair’s fusion dance, the judges were complimentary about Frankie and Witney, and Lindsey and Mark, but they were absolutely effusive in their remarks about Jordan and Lindsay, Carrie Ann said Jordan’s “skills are out of this world,” and added that he had made Lindsay a better choreographer, teacher, dancer and person, Len told Jordan, “I think you are the most complete male celebrity ever on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’” and Bruno followed with, “I couldn’t agree more, You’re right up there with the best that we have ever seen on this show.” My goodness..
