DWTS 21 Week 5 – Alexa PenaVega & Derek Hough –  Tango

Mark was really bummed about the mistake last week. She was even bummed that Mark said she might be eliminated. She is excited to dance with Derek this week. Derek wants to build her confidence back up this week and Alexa wants to do this for Mark so they survive next week. Derek is just a master at doing tango routines. He always makes them so epic. Like Carlos, Alexa needed this. A strong routine with great choreography and she nailed it. Love the convictions in the steps. Great hold too. I would have personally enjoyed if the troupe wasn’t used during this but I understand the theme Derek was going for. A really fabulous dance for Alexa and she needs to thank Derek for that one because she truly needed a home run.

Carrie Ann gives Alexa a standing ovation. Julianne loved that Alexa showed her raw side and it was authentic. Maks felt her past numbers were too much in her head. But this dance showed she is a leading lady. Bruno just adored it to the point I can’t understand what he is saying. Suffice it to say though, he really enjoyed the dance.
