DWTS 21 Week 9 – Tamar Braxton & Valentin – Contemporary – VIDEO

Tamar is still not back from the hospital but the show is still airing the rehearsal package from the two of them. Val doesn’t think a contemporary routine would have worked in week five but now, it will. Tamar believes she can make the finals. But it has been a super busy week for her. She has been all over the country doing her show, concerts, and rehearsal for dancing. So, the judges are going to score her dress rehearsal. And that’s what we are about to see. This is hard to judge because I have no idea how much effort Tamar and Val put into this or how much energy they saved for rehearsal. And to be honest, some of this is lacking. The connection is lacking. And some of the moves toward the middle and end are not exactly up to part as what one would expect. Again, no clue whether or not they held back for the show but you can definitely tell… this is just a rehearsal. It is a shame we couldn’t see this live because watching this just doesn’t compute to what we may have seen.

Bruno thought the concept was brilliant but the routine had a lot of mistakes. OH. Val doesn’t want to hear what the judges have to say. Carrie Ann says she could see it was a dress rehearsal. Julianne agrees with what Carrie Ann just said.
Carrie Ann- 8
Julianne- 7
Bruno- 7
