In week seven producers added a new task for the stars: Design their partner's costumes.
The results ranged from trashy to tacky, but it was a welcome distraction from watching the judges contradict each other.
Here's the breakdown.
The lovable football player earned a season high 23 for a fox trot that Len Goodman called "brilliant."
Design: He confessed that he was inspired by Barney purple.
He made a few missteps during his quick step, but sold it to the judges, who awarded him a 24.
Design: Equal parts car wash, Las Vegas, and Carrie Fisher in "The Empire Strikes Back."
Plagued by a missing partner and changing choreography, the chef's samba was awarded a disappointing 19.
Design: Victoria's Secret Dream Bra + a teal chiffon scarf.
Despite criticism from Len that she's too gimmicky, the singer started her fox trot behind a screen. Len's 7 dragged her score down to 25.
Design: A John Travolta white suit. Yawn.
His energetic, precise jive pleased all the judges. He scored 29.
Design: It looked like a feather duster collided with a gay lamp shade.
Still bristling from being called "beige" last week, Kelly's salsa was "flirty and a little dirty," said Bruno. She earned a 24.
Design: Four words: Electric blue tassel pants.
She built on her momentum with a dramatic rhumba, and a score of 27.
Design: A white shirt that looked like it was coming apart at the seams. Call it "albino Hulk."
Tomorrow night: Another dance-off, and double elimination.
