Dancing With The Stars Week 2: Kaitlyn Bristowe dances the Foxtrot


Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem returned for their second dance of the season, a Foxtrot to “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack!

Kaitlyn Bristowe was back on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars for the second week of dances Tuesday night (the episode was postponed due to Monday Night Football). Thankfully, the show proved just as entertaining on Tuesday as is on Mondays! Kaitlyn Bristowe sailed through the first week near the top of the leaderboard after her and her partner Artem’s Cha-Cha earned favorable scores from the judges. This week, she was back for the season’s first elimination episode.

Kaitlyn began this week with an injury, having hurt her ankle in rehearsals. However, she persevered and came out looking better than ever! She and Artem danced the final dance of the night, a Foxtrot to the tune of “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack. Such a classic song! The Foxtrot is often described by the judges as a very difficult dance, but Kaitlyn is no beginner! She had it handled.

Carrie Ann Inaba praised Kaitlyn, saying, “That’s how you dance with an injury!” Derek Hough said Kaitlyn was “reclaiming the dancer from within” (so poetic!) and called the dance “effortless.” Bruno Tonioli said the dance had a “classical ballet quality.” The pair earned scores of 7 from Carrie Ann and Bruno, and got their first 8 from Derek! This added up to 22 out of 30, with their total from both weeks adding up to 42.

Host Tyra Banks asked Kaitlyn how it felt to finally be living her dream, and she said it feels surreal, and I’m just over the moon!” She said her ankle is doing okay, all thanks to some rest and cortisone!

Kaitlyn and Artem were the first team safe from elimination at the end of the night, much to the relief (but not surprise) of Bachelor Nation! Unfortunately, one pair had to go home. Charles Oakley and his partner Emma Slater were not saved by the judges and will no longer be competing this season. They will be missed!
