Wetpaint Entertainment’s Dance of the Week: Ricki & Derek’s Killer Tango
The Dancing With the Stars judges can say what they want — they’re only half the battle. We have our own favorite routines each week. For Season 13, Week 4's tribute to movie scores we ... are siding with the judges. But just on this one dance!
In theory, it shouldn't have worked. A Tango to the Psycho theme just sounds like psychological torture. But Derek excels at a challenge. We had just posted a flashback video of his Season 10 Movie Night Tango with future winner Nicole Scherzinger, where they got two 10s dancing to a song from Pretty Woman. Derek got another score of 29 Tango-ing with Ricki, but this time he had a more unusual song with even more creative choreography. When Derek “killed” Ricki behind the screen — that was one of the coolest dance endings we’ve seen on this show. (Sorry, Ricki!)
If any other couple this season had been given “Tango” and Psycho it probably would’ve been a train wreck. (Having said that, someone make Carson Kressley do it!) But this is why Derek has won three times so far and is already on course to win again. If that happens, some of the other pros are probably going to drag Derek behind the screen and give him the full Psycho treatment.
Watch the full dance below.
