Dancing With the Stars 2013: Elizabeth Berkley and Val Chmerkovskiy’s Week 8 Jazz (VIDEO)

On Dancing With the Stars 2013 Season 17, Week 8, Elizabeth Berkley and Val Chmerkovskiy tackled Jazz to “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down).”

As Elizabeth’s favorite song, it was more nerve-racking than ever, but it didn’t show in their performance. It was intense and filled with shirtless Val, which certainly didn’t hurt their chances. They spun and kicked their way across the ballroom floor, mastering lifts and acrobatic moves from start to finish.

“I thought it was great and it was rough and I liked the rough part of it,” Cher said. Then they muted her, presumably because she said something very dirty. We may never know…

“It’s like the The Hunger Games — only one can survive. All that rage!” Bruno Tonioli exclaimed, though he noted that they missed some rhythm and opportunities in the musical phrases. Carrie Ann Inaba agreed, calling her “one-dimensional” in her anger, not giving the dance any breath.

Ultimately, they scored two 8s and a 9 (from Cher, of course), giving them 25 points.
