The video package showed some tension in the couple, as Val worked Elizabeth very hard. That said, both parts of the pair want to do as well as possible. Val only works Elizabeth hard because he knows how good she can be, and Elizabeth wants to be that good, so she's OK if Val is harsh.
The result wa a fun Quickstep. But is it just us, or was it not as sharp as it could be?
Len said the dance as "utterly full on." So apparently he didn't agree with us. Bruno was also a fan, shouting so quickly we could barely understand him. That said, both men commented that the couple lost body contact at some points. Carrie Ann called it "fantastic." That said, she agreed the partnering aspect could be better.
Score: 9, 9, 9
