Dancing With The Stars Week 6: Kaitlyn Bristowe dances the Samba


Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev danced the Samba this week on Dancing With The Stars!

Dancing With The Stars was back for another great week, featuring the top 11 dancers, and Kaitlyn Bristowe had a near-perfect, Bieber-ific dance! Kaitlyn and Artem Chigvintsev danced the Samba to Justin Bieber’s song “Sorry,” and it was a fantastic watch.

The night started out with a bang as usual—we had our host, Tyra Banks, with an amazing slicked back hairdo! We had a crazy dance performance from judge Derek Hough and his girlfriend! We had Carrie Ann Inaba in a bright red wig! On top of all of this, we had Kaitlyn Bristowe nailing a very technically difficult dance.

Kaitlyn was stoked about getting a Beiber song this week after nailing her tango last week, but she and Artem had what looked like a tough week of rehearsals. In the rehearsal package, we saw her trying her best to master the dance but taking some spills, as she referenced on her Instagram this past week.

After rehearsing nonstop, the duo Samba’d their way across the dance floor, and there was definitely nothing to be “sorry” about as Kaitlyn’s feet moved more quickly than we’ve ever seen!

Derek called the dance “fantastic” and complimented Kaitlyn’s “proper Samba hip action,” but he told her to work on her attack a bit more. Bruno was also impressed and said Kaitlyn made the dance look “effortless.”

Carrie Ann, however, was less enthusiastic than the other two judges. She said that while the dance was technically sound, she wasn’t very impressed and wanted more out of Kaitlyn. Did anyone else get serious Hannah Brown vibes from this moment? It reminded me so much of the critiques Carrie Ann gave Hannah B. last season, as Hannah nailed dance after dance but Carrie Ann felt she wasn’t giving all of herself.

Kaitlyn was very receptive to Carrie Ann’s critique, saying she agreed. I admit I did laugh out loud when Carrie said “Boo all you want, people,” even though there was no audience in the studio!

In the end, Kaitlyn and Artem earned another three 9’s from the judges for a score of 27 out of 30! Unfortunately, someone had to be sent home, and that someone this week was football star Vernon Davis. Farewell, Vernon!

dark. Next. The Bachelorette Season 16, episode 2 photos: Let’s play dodgeball!

It was a great night of dances! Can’t wait for Halloween night next week!

Which are you looking forward to seeing Kaitlyn do next week for Halloween Villain night?
