Couple: Sherri Shepherd & Val Chmerkovskiy
Score: 23 (23 last week)
Sherri didn’t know if she had the right build to tackle her jive. Certainly she’s got the bubbly personality to go along with the high-energy dance. "My equipment is way too heavy for all that bouncing around," she joked during practice.
There was definitely a spot where Sherri and Val just missed a huge trick, but Sherri covered it up nicely by going into her best impression of Tina Turner. That’s what you call a professional and the judges loved it almost as much as the audience did, and you could tell that Sherri was having fun on the floor.
Her technique may lack some finesse but her personality takes her over the top. BTW, we love that Sherri was mouthing the words along with the routine! She’s a dancer after our own heart.
