Dancing With the Stars Season 23 Week 5 Review
This one even got me teary eyed. You could tell how painful it was to talk about her mother. It was really touching. Now onto the dance. This was just spectacular. This was BY FAR her best dance, and I'm so glad that it was tonight. She was so graceful (and not stiff) tonight, and it was such an improvement over last week.
After watching the package, I think we can all agree that Laurie is a fighter. She always gets back up when knocked down. Now to the dance. I think it's pretty obvious that this was not Laurie's best dance. She messed up a few times. And I agree with Carrie Ann. The beginning felt unnecessary.
BTW, the Paso is evil.
James is inspiring. He went from near-death to the Ballroom in such a short period of time. He essentially died, but he's alive and dancing. He did really great tonight. It was so close to perfect that I contemplated giving him a 10, but I decided on a 9, ultimately.
This was such a tearjerker. Terra's story was so sad and so moving. When she talked about her father's death, you could almost feel her pain. Now onto the dance. Terra did a great job tonight. This may have been her best dance.
It's really nice to see that Maureen has been able to turn her life around after hitting rock-bottom. It's great that her husband was able to help her recover. That said, let's talk about the dance. It's kinda hard to believe that this is the same Maureen from week 1. She's improved so much since her first dance. I'm really hoping that she can stick around this week and continue to improve over the coming weeks.
My Score: 8
Amber talks about the birth of her child in the package. She's been doing better lately, so I'm not surprised that this was her best dance so far. She was actually pretty good this week.
My Score: 8
