In the rehearsal sequence we learn that a torn tendon in his foot ended Rick Fox's basketball career. He says it's not really an injury that you can dance with either, and he's feeling it. But he'll push through the pain. He and Cheryl Burke dance the jive to "Tush," a great ZZ Top song. It looks pretty good to me. (Is that a big help to you? LOL.) Len thought it was "compact and full of energy." Bruno says it looked like a "California condor dancing with a hummingbird," but in a good way, I guess because he later scores it a 7. Carrie Ann says she liked it, but thought last week's performance was better because "Rick's posture is more suited to the waltz." Scores: 7-7-7, for a 21/30.
In the rehearsal sequence, Florence Henderson says she doesn't want to be thought of as "the 76 year-old who can actually walk." And at one point, she flips off the camera, which gets he finger pixelated out. Sheesh, she looks good for 76. She and Corky Ballas dance the quickstep, but I don't know the music. (SKK: It was "Suddenly I See" by KT Tunstall. That I do know!) Again, it looks pretty good to me. You can tell she's a little tired by the end. But, hey, she's 76. Bruno says "at times it looked like 'Driving Miss Daisy and at times it was lovely." Carrie thought the dance suited her elegance. Len says he doesn't score based on age, but on whether she should be invited back, then says, "based on that performance ... see you next week." Scores: 7-6-6, for a 19/30.
