Top Three Dances1. Once again, Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater were amazing. I know that athletes do very well on DWTS, but Rashad is really terrific. This week’s Viennese waltz was so different from their cha cha last week, but both dances were outstanding. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said he had “effortless control” and a “good connection” with Emma, while Len said it had “flow, movement. Bottom line: I liked it.” Score 32 out of 40. 2. Also doing a Viennese waltz were Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess. I didn’t know what to expect from a bull rider, but he really has great moves and only needs a bit of polishing. Judge Julianne Hough said he was “a perfect example of taking something and simple choreography and executing it beautifully.” Score 29 out of 40.
