Score: 9, 9, 10 = 28. Their trio jive routine brought nothing but praise. “That may be the best routine I’ve seen in 17 seasons,” said Carrie Ann.

Score: 10, 10, 10 = 30 + 28 = total of 58. Leah and Tony — tango; trio jive with Henry Byalikov (DWTS Troupe).

Bruno called it a “bad ass proper tango” and said that when she maintains her focus, she’s stunning. Len told Tony that “all the steps were there” and that Leah brought the flavor.
