DWTS 2016 Recap: Jana Kramer Is Perfect on Latin Night!
Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars 2016 continued in Week 6's Latin Night with guest judge Pitbull kicking off the night in fine, fiery style with a rousing musical number. You could feel the ballroom heat as the Dancing with the Stars cast performed some simply sizzling routines all night long during their continued quest for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy, which has nothing to do with the Mirrorball pinata that everyone took a whack at after their dances. Which stars shined brightest during this scorching hot night of Sambas, Tangos, Rumbas and more? Let's find out right now. See all the highlights of the night in our Dancing with the Stars video recap of Latin Night with all the top moments in the Glitter Report!
Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko (Argentine Tango): On a night of hot dances, this one was truly cool thanks to the large amount of water that poured down on the team during their shower scene. Julianne said she owned the dance. Bruno said Jana was as down and dirty as she could possibly go and he loved every minute of it. Carrie Ann loved the fact that Jana was dancing as if she was taking the Mirrorball. Pitball felt it was so hot that he had to take his jacket off. 10-10-10-10 from the judges for a total of a perfect 40! SEE JANA KRAMER'S FULL LATIN NIGHT DANCE BELOW!
James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess (Rumba): Carrie Ann felt that James just brought the main entree after a night of chips and salsa. Pitbull had to take his glasses off after that one. Julianne thinks James may be the best male dancer they had on the show, but she still wants more chemistry with Sharna. Bruno felt the chemistry for sure. He thought the dance was pitch perfect. 10-9-9-10 from the judges for a total of 38. SEE JAMES HINCHCLIFFE'S FULL LATIN NIGHT DANCE BELOW!
Calvin Johnson, Jr. and Lindsay Arnold (Argentine Tango): Carrie Ann felt those were the most astounding lifts she's seen in 23 seasons in a dance with magnetic intensity. Pitbull feels Calvin could have used some of those moves on the football field. Julianne felt Calvin owned the dance. Bruno thought Calvin was smoldering and felt he was in control every single moment of the dance. 9-10-9-9 from the judges for a total of 37. SEE CALVIN JOHNSON'S FULL LATIN NIGHT DANCE BELOW!
Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy (Salsa): Pitbull used the word "amazing" to describe the dance. Julianne was really picky because she believes in Laurie by advising her to work on her hip action. Bruno felt Laurie killed it. Carrie Ann saw a few missteps, but feels Laurie is still incredible. 9-9-9-10 from the judges for a total of 37. SEE LAURIE HERNANDEZ'S FULL LATIN NIGHT DANCE BELOW!
Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke (Salsa): The heat was on and shirt came off during the opening number. Pitbull got so excited during his review, he blurted out that he was giving Ryan an 8 right out of the gate. Julianne liked the commitment and the spray tan and Bruno agreed that Ryan undressed to impress. Carrie Ann didn't care for the musicality of the dance. Scores of 7-8-8-7 for a total of 30.

Terra Jole and Sasha Farber (Paso Doble): Julianne felt like this wasn't Terra's best dance, but it was still executed with fire. Bruno felt things weren't as sharp as they could have been. Carrie Ann agreed that this was a difficult dance that felt one dimensional. Pitbull felt the intensity of the routine and congratulated her on a great job. 7-8-8-7 for a total of 30.

Amber Rose & Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Cha Cha): Things got off to an intentionally slow start, but then it came time to do some serious cha-cha-cha-ing. Bruno wants Amber to push her interplay with Maks. Carrie Ann wants more as well. Pitbull knows that he and Amber are from the same world, so he commends her for the effort. Julianne advises Amber to smack Maks around a little more (purely for dance purposes, of course). 7-7-7-7 from the judges for a total of 28. SEE AMBER ROSE'S FULL LATIN NIGHT DANCE BELOW!
Marilu Henner and Derek Hough (Cha Cha): Julianne said Marilu's dance is what Latin Night is all about. Bruno felt she was both graceful and sexy. Carrie Ann felt this was the most confident and radiant she has seen Marilu, but saw a moment where she wanted her to bend her leg a bit more. 8-9-9-8 from the judges for a total of 34. SEE MARILU HENNER'S FULL LATIN NIGHT DANCE HERE!Maureen McCormick and Artem Chigvintsev (Samba): Bruno felt it was a classic samba that put you in a party mood, but warned Maureen to not force things. Carrie Ann feels it's Maureen's spirit that makes her dance. Pitbull felt there was a little over-thinking out there, but she still did a good job. Julianne said Maureen captured the essence of what Latin Night is all about. 8-7-8-8 from the judges for a total of 31. SEE MAUREEN MCCORMICK'S FULL LATIN NIGHT DANCE HERE!
