Their Season 15, Week 3: Performance Paso Doble underwhelmed judge Carrie Ann Inaba but still put them in the middle-of-the-pack score-wise. But a good chunk of the audience was apparently voting elsewhere, and the couple almost ended up going home. It was a little too close to Sabrina’s Season 5 experience for comfort, and she told TV Guide they will approach the Season 15, Week 4: Performance show (October 15) with a different mindset.
“Louis and I took some risks technique-wise [on Week 3], but they're looking for the wow factor,” Sabrina said. “Sometimes it takes an ‘Oh, OK’ for you to realize that. Of course, you want good scores, but this season, beyond any other season, is 100 percent about the audience.”
Everyone is doing funky new dance styles on Week 4, and Sabrina and Louis were given Disco. That genre brings up a lot of fun — and potentially cheesy — images to mind, but Sabrina said not to expect anything like John Travolta’s Saturday Night Fever.
“It's more Studio 54 — really edgy and bringing back that glam that was going on in the '70s in Hollywood,” Sabrina said. “There are lifts. We went a little conservative last week and kind of got nailed for it, so this week, we're going balls-to-the-wall. We really want to amp it up and do everything we can.”
If you can do lifts, you might as well at least try for them! Sabrina and Louis both have so much energy, they should be able to do justice to a fast, fun, Disco routine. Are you excited to see the result?
