Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi embraced her cheerleading past with her and Sasha Farber’s Jive on Dancing With the Stars 2013 Season 17, Week 4. Though she was sick during rehearsals, they powered through, doing their best in the fun performance.
With quick movements, flips (including back handsprings), jumps, and spins, it was hard to tell that they didn’t rehearse as hard as usual. It’s clear that Snooki does best with faster dances, and pairing her cheerleading and gymnastic skills with dancing did them well.
“You’re like my little nugget. I love you! You are the cutest thing in the world. That was so you,” guest judge Julianne Houghs aid. She did encourage her to be sharper with her kicks and have more of a connection with Sasha.
Snooki’s performance had Bruno dancing and singing behind the table, singing “Hey Snooki” instead of “Hey Mickey,” the song they danced to. “I think it was brilliant,” he said ultimately.
“You are such a power-packed rocket of energy,” Carrie Ann said, though noted that she had some “T-Rex” arms in the beginning and needs to watch her knees.
Overall, they scored 8s across the board, giving them 24 points total.
