Jake T. Austin's Last Dance


Week 2 High Score - Laurie Hernandez and Valentin Chmerkovskiy (Jive): 32

Julianne felt it like Laurie was Disney's Beyonce. Bruno can't wait to see Laurie next week. Scores of 8-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 32!

Low Score - Rick Perry and Emma Slater (Quickstep): 22

Rick Perry and Emma Slater did a Quickstep to the Green Acres theme. Farm living is the life for Rick, as the tractor was invented the year he was born. Bruno said his performances are very catchy—like a bad cold. Carrie Ann disagreed and felt it was a fun dance. Len also enjoyed it adding that Rick simply needs a bit more polish. Scores of 6-5-6-5 for a total of 22.
