Dancing With the Stars 2013 pair Valerie Harper and Tristan MacManus warmed our hearts again in Season 17, Week 2 tonight, Monday, September 23, with a fun Paso Doble.

It all started with Valerie solo, waving her skirt around, before they moved across the ballroom floor together quickly, smiles on their faces as they spun and slid around, leaving the audience applauding loudly.

“I like that you started this whole dance on your own … with a little bit of Flamenco,” Len said, though she noted that she seemed nervous. “I love the way you captured the grandeur of a great lady of Spain!” Bruno added. I can’t believe you did what you did. You went for it and I loved it.”

Carrie Ann was the one to tell it like it is. “I think the beginning was fantastic, but I feel you forgot about a third of your routine in the middle. You looked lost,” she noted, but said Valerie was incredible in her attack.

They ultimately scored two 6s and one 7, giving them a total of 19.
