Solo To Quickstep On DWTS
Nov. 7, 2011
SEATTLE - Former Husky All-American Hope Solo easily avoided elimination last week on Dancing with the Stars. Solo and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, redeemed themselves on Halloween night, scoring 24 points from the judges Monday. The pair danced a samba to Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London."
On Week 8, the five remaining dancing couples will tackle two dances, a prepared dance and an "Instant Jive", where each pair will pick a song out of a hat and have only until later in the show to put together their performance. Solo and Chmerkovskiy will dance a quickstep to Mark Ronson's "Valerie."
Actor David Arquette and partner Kym Johnson were sent packing last week, despite scoring 24 points from the judges. They now join activist Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer, reality TV personality Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya, singer Chynna Phillips and 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.
