Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas – Cha Cha Cha – “I’m A Slave 4 U” by Britney Spears – Cha Cha
Alexa is thrilled about last week’s first perfect score of the season. Alexa is intimidated by recreating the dance. And here comes the snake. Ominous music. LOL. Alexa looks petrified. She doesn’t want to make the snake nervous. Okay. I need to give some credit to Mark for actually putting together a Cha-Cha-Cha to that. It couldn’t have been easy considering the song and the theme of the dance. Alexa is doing a decent job but something feels lacking. I don’t know if the costumes are getting the way (Alexa almost tripped on Mark when he was on ground) or nerves (perhaps the intimidation of last week) but this isn’t as perfect. No denying it is decent but I think, like Hayes, Alexa would have been better with some more practice. Everything was just a step down from hitting all the right notes. And the snake comes out. For not very long. LOL. She has more guts than me, that’s for sure.
Carrie Ann felt Alexa missed the essence of the dance. She just wasn’t aware of the movements. She thought it Alexa owned it more with the snake. Julianne agrees and wanted Alexa more grounded and into the floor. She did feel Alexa went down a bit from last week. Olivia thought it was sexy and she thought Alexa was brave. Bruno thought it worked very well. He wants Alexa not to hold back.
Carrie Ann- 8
