Dancing With the Stars 2013 Live Recap: Week 8 Performances — Who Got a Perfect Score?
It’s that time of the season again, Dancing With the Stars fans. The remaining six Season 16 couples will be dancing not one, but two (!) full performances tonight. And one of those performances is the anticipated Trio dance in which each couple will be joined by an eliminated DWTS pro or Pro Troupe member. We. Are. So. Excited.
Get the details on everyone’s Trio performances here. (We’re thinking Zendaya is a lucky lady tonight, as she’ll be dancing with both her partner Val Chmerkovskiy and new pro Gleb Savchenko.)
Well, now that you know what to expect, join in on the fun below as Wetpaint Entertainment gets ready to live recap the Week 8 Performance Show. And since we know you have a lot of feelings (we do too!), tell us what you think of the episode in the comments.
We’ll try our best to answer all of your questions, comments and concerns. Keep refreshing for more, and until the performances start, here’s a funny GIF of Val and Zendaya to tide you over.
8:00 — OMG. Derek and Tristan are dacing together in the Trio challenge?! CANNOT WAIT.
8:01 — Val can wink at me like that anytime.
8:03 — "It's so relaxing and calm, and sometimes Val needs that." Zendaya and Val are adorable. She's the Ying to his Yang.
8:04 — Val and Zendaya are dancing the Foxtrot to "Don't Worry, Be Happy." Could this be any more perfect?
8:06 — "When you got into hold, you took my breath away," says Carrie Ann. (Is it just us, or is Carrie Ann a little harsh this season?"
8:08 — Val says Zendaya brings out the best in him. Swoon.
8:08 — 9-10-9 for Val and Zendaya. It's a 10 from Len!
8:14 — Sean says he loves dancing. If only dancing loved him.
8:15 — Peta scares me.
8:16 — This actually isn't that bad. We wonder if Peta really said something to "piss him off" before they went on stage.
8:17 — They danced the Tango to Katy Perry's "Hot and Cold." Could there be a more hilarious song choice for Sean? He's consistently hot and cold.
8:18 — Len just called their Tango "ugly." Peta is not happy.
8:23 — And it's a 7-7-7 for Sean and Peta. (Must Sean bring Catherine up every week?)
8:25 — Jacoby's mom is so fierce. She's the best part of Season 16.
8:26 — Jacoby and Karina's Viennese Waltz is seriously sexy.
8:27 — Damn. Somebody better be getting some 10s after that dance.
8:28 — When Jacoby's mama is happy, everyone is happy. We think he's getting a 10 from Len...
8:34 — Nevermind. It's 9-9-9 for Jacoby and Karina. We think he was overscored on that one.
8:35 — Not even a dramatic edit will make me care about Ingo, which is sad because I love Kym.
8:36 — It's like an Australian soap opera right now.
8:37 — If only we liked the Foxtrot more... bring on the faster dances!
8:38 — We weren't impressed with Ingo's Foxtrot — but the judges enjoyed it. Are they trying to save Ingo from a mental breakdown?
8:39 — "You reminded me of Gene Kelly." Really, Carrie Ann?
8:44 — It's 8-8-8 for Ingo and Kym.
8:45 — Carrie Ann wants more emotion from Kellie, and we agree. She's a technical dancer, but she doesn't connect to the music.
8:48 — Pretty Viennese Waltz from Kellie and Derek. This could be the first perfect dance of the season (although, we really hope not because that dance wasn't that good).
9:54 — 9-9-10 for Kellie and Derek! Same score as Zendaya and Val. What a coincidence!
8:56 — It's hard to imagine Aly as a harlot, but OK...
