What does Hannah Brown have to do to get a 10 from Len Goodman on “Dancing with the Stars”? The “Bachelorette” star performed twice during “Boy Band and Girl Group Night.” Her first dance was a little rocky, but her second routine was just about perfect. And by “just about,” I mean that it got 10s from everyone but Goodman. Watch that near-perfect dance above, and scroll down to vote in our polls at the bottom of this post.
Brown started the night with a girl-group salsa to “No Scrubs” by TLC, but she and her pro partner Alan Bersten looked a little awkward at times. Bruno Tonioli told her that her “timing went off.” Carrie Ann Inaba thought the lifts were “out of sorts.” Goodman thought she got ahead of the music. Even guest judge Joey Fatone told her she was “a little sloppy.” While getting her critiques she explained that she was trying to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. Regardless, that routine got straight 8s for a total of 32 out of 40.
But when she returned to the dance floor later that night with a tango to BTS‘s “Boy with Luv,” following a clip package that showed her crying from frustration, she was back in top form. Fatone thought it was “the best dance of the night” up to that point. She had Tonioli “purring like a kitten.” Inaba thought she was back to her “A game.” And Goodman thought it was “well done” … but “a little loose on occasion.”
She got 10s from the judges except Goodman, who docked her a point for looseness. The exact same thing happened to Brown last week when she gave a breakthrough performance that got 10s from Inaba and Tonioli, but a 9 from Goodman, who thought there was too big a gap between her and Bersten while they were in hold. Maybe next week Brown and Bersten should be super-glued together to finally get the perfect score that continues to elude them. Did you agree with Goodman, or should she have gotten that last 10 from the judges’ table?
