Dancing with the Stars got a new look this year, hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announced the elimination can happen at any time of the show. During week two of Season 18, swimmer Diana Nyud and former NHL star Sean Avery were both eliminated.
Nyad and Avery were in the bottom two based on a combination of viewer votes and judges' scores for their performances in last week's premiere. Meanwhile, Billy Dee Williams received enough votes to remain in the competition and danced a tango for the judges.
This week, each couple performed a dance style of the celebrities choosing including Swing, Tango, Jive, Salsa, Samba, Rumba and the Cha Cha.
Olympic gold medalist Meryl Davis brightened up the night in a polka dot costume with scarlet red lips, she performed an energetic jive with Maksim Chmerkovskiy which the judges called a "fantastic" dance. They got a total score of 25.
Davis' ice dancing partner Charlie White chose the Tango and learns the character he needs to channel is that of a "bad boy." The routine wowed both Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli; they each gave a "9." But Len Goodman commented the couple for breaking hold, a major Tango no-no, and he knocked his score down to a "7."
Full House star Candace Cameron Bure wants to stay true to her Christian values, but that didn't stop her from heating things up on the dance floor with Mark Ballas the rumba. "I feel like a sexual woman but want to reserve certain things for my husband," she revealed. They did a sensual dance instead of a sexual one. Carrie Ann thought their Rumba looked a little too contemporary but praised Candace's potential and Bruno told her she dances from her heart.
Meanwhile, Paralympian Amy Purdy and Derek Hough wowed the judges with their energetic swing dance. Len Goodman called the 34-year old snowboarder "amazing," while her proud pro partner praised her for giving it her all.
