Dancing With the Stars Season 16 was filled with shimmies, romance, and lifts on the Latin themed Week 7 performance show (April 29, 2013). Who rocked, and who didn't quite tap into their sexy side? Here are Wetpaint Entertainment's picks for best and worst of the night.
Best: Zendaya and Val & Jacoby and Karina’s Dance-Off Jive
For pure thrills and fun, it's hard to top the dance-off Jive between Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy and Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff. Yes, Zendaya and Val got all three judges' votes for winner, but both teams were overflowing with energy, entertainment, and talent.
Honorable Mention: Aly Raisman & Mark Ballas's Salsa
Aly Raisman brought the fun with this Salsa, which earned near-perfect scores. We're not convinced it really deserved two 10s, but it was definitely one of the best, and most entertaining, dances of the night.
Worst: Andy Dick & Sharna Burgess
We really hate to say this because, as you probably know by now, we've fallen a little in love with Andy Dick here at Wetpaint Entertainment. But this week we have to go with the judges: Andy's technique in this Rumba was weak. Hey,Sharna Burgess did tell us way back in Week 2 that Rumba would be Andy's weak point. (That said, this score is lower than we think he deserved.)
Dis-honorable mention: Sean & Peta vs. Ingo & Kym Dance-Off Rumba
Ending the night on a dance-off between the two middle-of-the-packers, where they were dancing a slow Rumba, of all things, was really not the best way to close the night. It was a bit of a snooze fest.
Who were your favorite and least favorites of the night? Let us know in the comments below.
Find out who's eliminated tonight, Tuesday, April 30, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
