Solo Will Rumba For Broadway Night on DWTS
Oct. 24, 2011
SEATTLE - Former UW Husky and World Cup soccer goalie Hope Solo survived yet another scare last week on "Dancing with the Stars." Solo and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, danced the tango to the popular Bon Jovi song "Livin' on a Prayer" for the `80s week theme.
Despite ending up in the bottom three for the second time in three weeks, the combined total of 24 points from the judges and viewers' votes were enough to pass them through to Week 6. The pair will dance the Rumba to a famous show tune from Rent for the Broadway theme. Viewers can follow all the action along on Twitter with #maksolo to support the pair tonight at 8/7C on ABC.
Reality TV personality Carson Kressley and his partner, Anna Trebunskaya, were eliminated by a combination of judges' scores and viewers' votes. They now join singer Chynna Phillips and dancing partner Tony Dovolani, reality TV personality Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas, Italian model Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy, and NBA star Ron Artest and Peta Mugatroyd.
