DWTS 27 Week 4 Recap – Live Blog and Performance Videos

Hey Dancing Fans,

Welcome to week four of season twenty-seven of Dancing with the Stars. Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews returned as hosts, while Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli returned as judges. Check out all the song and dance style spoilers HERE.

This week is trios week! It is done a little bit different than normal. Usually, a pro joins the pair or a former contestant of that pro. This season it is either past contestants (not all with the same former pro) or other celebrities. It is sure to be an interesting night.

The troupe is opening up the show with “Faith.”


Up first are Juan Pablo and Cheryl dancing with DWTS alum Melissa RycroftCha-cha – It’s so great to see Melissa back in the ballroom! She was paired with Tony Dovolani on season 8 (3rd place) and the all-star season and won.  Hot, hot, hot as always! This is an amazing trio. They looked like three pros

Len: Three was terrific. Lovely mix of steps between three of you. Bruno: Dead sexy. Wrong foot one time. Fantastic routine. CAI: Sexy. Holding back a hair. A little controlled. Held the center.

Scores: CAI: 8    Len:   Bruno: 8    Total: 24 out of 30

Next up are Tinashe and Brandon with Amy PurdyTango – Amy was partnered with Derek Hough on season 18. She placed 2nd. Tango is very hard with three people. That wasn’t the most exciting tango I’ve seen.

Bruno: Created wonderful images and going back into a tango was superb. CAI: Innovative choreography. Tinashe was the star in the number. Sexy for all the right reasons. Len: Handled it well. Lost neck in hold sometimes. Well done

Scores: CAI:     Len:   8   Bruno:  9   Total:  26 out of 30


Dancing third is John and Emma with *NSYNC member and DWTS alum Joey Fatone!- Argentine Tango – Joey is great. So funny and talented. He was on season 4 (runner-up) and 15 (eliminated 2nd) with Kym Johnson.

That was pretty good. Interesting. Joey is on the floor hahaha.

CAI: Started out rough. All of the energy went to Emma as soon as the violins came in. Len: No messing around. Straight into the dance. Love the way you interacted. Passion, attack. Bruno: Music was hard to keep up with but they did a good job in spite of it all.

Scores: CAI:   Len:   7  Bruno:  7  Total:  21  out of 30

Artem, Gleb, and Val are dancing with flags and I’m not hating it. 

Evanna and Keo will be dancing next with Scarlett Byrne (Pansy Parkinson in “Harry Potter“)- salsa – Good friends bring out the best in you! That was fun.

Len: A lot of salsa content. More hip action. Great routine. Bruno: More confident, livelier. Off sync at one moment. Push hips. CAI: Blown away. Seemed really relaxed. Love watching her expand.

Scores: CAI: 8   Len: Bruno:  8  Total: 24 out of 30

DeMarcus hurt his finger. Rashad accidentally kicked it. The dance was great, however. Passionate.

Bruno: Found it hard to concentrate. Clash of the Titans. Can’t lose artistry. CAI: Showcased physique and physicality. Open arms and extend movements. Len: Got the guns but not always the ammunition. Attitude and attack were great.
