Team Past (James, Maureen, Calvin, Ryan): The stylish, atmospheric dance was an elegant crowd-pleaser. Len felt it was very brave of the team to go for a Viennese Waltz. Julianne felt is was executed brilliantly. Bruno was impressed by the gorgeous synchronicity. Carrie Ann felt it was her favorite dance of the night. 10-9-9-10 from the judges for a total 38.
Team Future (Laurie, Marilu, Jana, Terra): Well, there certainly was a futuristic feel to this high-energy routine that slowed down to have a dramatic ending. Julianne loved the cool concept but there were a few out-of-sync moments. Bruno is a sci-fi freak, so he loved it. Carrie Ann loved that the team went for the challenge and congratulated Marilu for being a trooper after taking a little spill. Len like the little touches of Tango and Paso Doble he saw. 8-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 35.
Calvin Johnson, Jr. and Lindsay Arnold ('50s Jive): Calvin made good use of the cool car on the ballroom floor as part of his fun, fast-moving routine. Carrie Ann loved that he Calvin-ized the dance. Len said it was a polished, high-octane performance. Julianne though the energy was amazing and Bruno loved the footwork. 9-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 36.

James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess ('40s Jitterbug): James was in the army but went on leave the moment he saw Sharna for a thoroughly entertaining dance. Carrie Ann loves how James disappears in to the role they create. Len felt he interpreted the music and would have liked to have seen some more jitterbug. Julianne knows this team never leaves anything to chance. Bruno loved the mood, look, style and storytelling even though it wasn't as synced up as it could have been. 9-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 36. SEE JAMES HINCHCLIFFE'S FULL ERAS NIGHT DANCE!
Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy ('60s Quickstep): It was prom night as Laurie went to her first big dance ever with Val by her side. "One Fine Day" was on the jukebox for one fine Quickstep from the team. Len Goodman was back and quick to say the team rushed a little and it caused them to lose some technique. Bruno loved the sporty element of the dance. Carrie Ann was on "lift police patrol," but she still loves that Laurie element that's always there. 8-8-9-9 from the judges for a total of 34.

Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke ('90s Rumba): Julianne wanted to see something a little more dynamic from the dance. Bruno wanted Ryan to listen to the words and music to act the dance. Carrie Ann agreed that there wasn't enough of a connection to the music. Len gave Ryan an extra point because he didn't use props but simply came out and did the dance. 7-7-7-7 from the judges for a total of 28. SEE RYAN LOCHTE'S FULL ERAS NIGHT DANCE!
Marilu Henner and Derek Hough ('20s Charleston): Bruno felt Marilu was a feisty flapper who captured the Roaring '20s, but he saw some mistakes. Carrie Ann didn't feel like the team was in sync. Len thought is was fun and the '20s vibe was captured. Julianne knows there were some mistakes, but she points out that Marilu is still bringing it every week. 7-7-8-7 from the judges for a total of 29. SEE MARILU HENNER'S FULL ERAS NIGHT DANCE!
Maureen McCormick and Artem Chigvintsev ('80s Tango): There were a few issues with Artem stepping on Maureen's dress, but Len still liked the attitude.

Carrie Ann offered some constructive feedback to get closer on the holds. 7-7-7-7 from the judges for a total of 28. SEE MAUREEN MCCORMICK'S FULL ERAS NIGHT DANCE!
Terra Jole and Sasha Farber ('30s Foxtrot): Elegance was in the ballroom for this heavenly routine. Julianne said this is the Terra she fell in love with from the get-go. Bruno felt she captured the time when Hollywood musicals ruled the screen. Len said Terra put the "all" in "small." 9-8-9-8 from the judges for a total of 34. SEE TERRA JOLE'S FULL ERAS NIGHT DANCE!
Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko ('70s Samba): The team got down at the laundromat for their totally groovy routine. Bruno thought the dance was hot. Carrie Ann reminded the team about the lifts and pointed out some issues of musicality. Len wanted more Samba content, but still felt it was crisp and clean even though he got a little cranky with Gleb at the end of his comments. Julianne feels the team broke out at just the right time and she liked the funk! 8-8-9-9 from the judges for a total of 34. SEE JANA KRAMER'S FULL ERAS NIGHT DANCE!
