Dancing With the Stars 2014: Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy’s Week 8 Tango (VIDEO)

On Dancing With the Stars Season 18, Week 8, Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy tackled the Tango.

Danica is, of course, still suffering from her rib injury. In their video, Val said he thinks Danica can still make the finals. Val said Danica is a fighter, she's resilient, she wants to earn her wins. Danica said the dance is about being strong and powerful, which is sexy. Val said his goal is to make a dance that is technically strong enough to please Len.

The result is a dramatic, intense Tango. No wide smiles for Danica this week. She looked amazing in her white dress with black embellishments. The dancing itself was sharp, and looked pretty solid to us. We wish we could see what Danica would have done uninjured, but hey, you can't have everything. This was pretty great.

Abby Lee Miller said it was an amazing concept. She thought Danica was beautiful. She needs to make sure her shoulders stay down. Bruno said it was Danica's most majestic and powerful performance. He'll be devastated if she's eliminated tonight. Carrie Ann said tonight Danica had a lot of artistry. Very strong. Len thought it took a while to get started, but once they got into hold it was fantastic.

Score: 38/40.

Dancing With the Stars airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
