Dancing With The Stars season 13’s judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba did not hesitate to award a score of 23 out of 30, the top score of the week 2 night on September 26 to actress-talk show hostess Ricki Lake and Derek Hough for their Jive to the song “Hey Ya!” of OutKast.
Ricki Lake performed successfully and surprised both three judges and all of audiences on Dancing With The Stars week 2. Ricki was another contestant shining that night with her jive that earned 23, which was the highest point on the second performance show. Ricki Lake’s jive was thought to be entertaining and quirky and some people could not imagine how Ricki Lake threw out the sexy moves and gave it so much personality. Bruno thought her kicks and flicks were done perfectly for the dance and Carrie Ann said best Jive of the night so far while Len said he didn’t like it, but he liked the fun of it. In total, Ricki Lake has been the first contestant of Dancing With The Stars season 13 to earn two 8 marks for a performance.
Len: "There was a couple of steps that disturbed me a little bit -- I didn't like it!" "I would've liked a bit more jive content." "We're judging the jive here, me old sausage."
Bruno: "Let me call it as it is, Ricki. You're the first person tonight who did the flicks and kicks correctly." "You got to sit on Derek as well!"
Carrie Ann: "Best jive of the night so far!"
Scores: 8+7+8 = 23
