It was hard for Jack and Cheryl this week. Cheryl was pushing Jack hard, and he felt like his body was giving out on him. He had bouts of exhaustion that may or may not have been related to MS. It was clearly very hard for him, but Cheryl was supportive.
Their dance itself was cute, and Jack kept up very well. That said, his kicks lacked oomph, and the performance factor sometimes slipped up because he was concentrating so hard. Still, we loved how hard he was clearly trying.
What did the judges have to say? Len complimented Jack's musicality and his lightness on his feet. That said, he wanted more crispness in the feet. That said, he told him "well done, Jack. You're always great to watch." Bruno said Jack has an ease of movement and charm. "The performance flow was absolutely perfect." That said, he sometimes goes flat footed. Carrie Ann thought the dance was "perfectly suited to [Jack]," and implied she liked it more than Brant's.
Score: 10, 8, 9. We thought that was a bit high. What do you guys think?
