But first, let's do our Dancing with the Stars video recap of TV Night with all the highlights in the Glitter Report!
A Very Brady Quickstep: Maureen McCormick and Artem Chigvintsev did the Quickstep to The Brady Bunch theme. Star football player Doug Simpson (from the famed "Oh, my nose" episode) must've been eating his heart out after this one. Len says Maureen's confidence was much better. Julianne also saw that she was more relaxed. Bruno liked the sassy side he saw though there were a couple of foot faults. 7-6-6-7 from the judges. Johnny Bravo would've been proud. Florence Henderson, who was in the crowd cheering her on, sure was.
Laurie Hernandez and Valentin Chmerkovskiy did the Jive to "DuckTales" by the Disney Afternoon Studio Chorus. The dancing duo followed up their fine Week 1 performance with another crowd-pleaser. 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.
Did He Do That?: Calvin Johnson Jr. and Lindsay Arnold did the Foxtrot to "As Days Go By" which is the theme from Family Matters. Calvin channeled his inner-Urkel for a charming routine. Carrie Ann was impressed with the holds considering the height difference. Len loved the understated moments. Julianne feels an unexpected spark from Calvin, who got four 7s from the judges and a surprise visit from the real Urkel, Jaleel White.
Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko did a slick Tango after a week where Jana had to work through an injury. She powered through though to deliver another steamy routine. Bruno said he felt like going to confession after it was done. See why!
Terra Jolé and Sasha Farber did a Quickstep to the theme from Bewitched. There was magic in the air during this one. Len felt Terra sparkled tonight. Julianne felt the performance was made for Terra in what was her favorite dance of the night. Bruno loved the timing of her foot placement. Scores of 8-7-8-8 from the judges.
Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Allison Holker did the Argentine Tango to the X-Files theme. Toni Braxton popped by during rehearsal week to help give Babyface some guidance to get over his shyness. Julianne thinks there's a mystery about Babyface. Bruno felt the dance was enigmatic and he played the routine just right. Carrie Ann used the word "yummy" to summarize her feelings. Scores of 8-7-7-8 from the judges.
Am I a Man, Or am I a Muppet: Ryan Lochte answers this always-difficult question in his dance.
There were no eliminations during the first night of Week 2, but you can still check out all the scores before the Dancing with the Stars comes your way TUESDAY 8|7c with the first Results Show of the season only on ABC!
