'Dancing With the Stars' Week 6 Recap: It's a Stevie Wonder-ful Night for Kellie Pickler
Week 6 of "Dancing With the Stars" had Stevie Wonder in the house as the celebs danced in honor of the 50th anniversary of his first No. 1 single. And while the legendary singer performed three times during the two-hour show, it was the house band that took over some of his biggest hits. Still, it was a Wonder-ful theme that was topped off with the ultrapopular team dances.
Check out how this season's remaining eight celebs did as they took on Stevie and team spirit.
Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough (Stevie song: "Part-Time Lover")
Kellie Pickler got wiggy with it, covering her pixie 'do with a mass of blonde ringlets. (Carrie Ann Inaba called her a "Chia Pet.") The "American Idol" alum's quickstep with Derek Hough had a minor spacing issue, but only eagle-eye Carrie Ann noticed -- or cared. Len Goodman dubbed the dance the best he's seen on Season 16. Finally a 10 from Len!
Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy (Stevie song: "Do I Do")
Last week she scored the first 10s of the season, but how did Disney star Zendaya Coleman and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, do with this week's cha-cha? Cue up two more 10s! Zendaya shook things up with a black-and-gold fringed dress and some serious moves, nabbing a pair of 10s and one nine. (Guess who the lone holdout was at the judges' table?) Bruno Tonioli praised her "slick hip action" and added, "You can cha-cha me anytime!"
Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess (Stevie song: "Signed, Sealed, Delivered")
Comedian Andy Dick went postal for his dance with partner Sharna Burgess when he dressed as a postman and danced what Bruno called "a splendid shambles of a samba." Carrie Ann was downright confused: "What dance was he doing?" she asked. And while Len acknowledged that the dance "wasn't that good technically," he gave Andy a thumbs-up for "fun." Still, this dance tied for the lowest-scoring solo routine of the night, with triple sixes.
Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd (Stevie song: "I Wish")
Sean Lowe had one goal this week: to beat Andy Dick's samba score. What viewers got was a spray-tanned, shirtless Sean and a whole lot of shimmying. Len told the "Bachelor" star that he needed to set his sights higher if all he wanted to do was beat Andy, while Bruno told him, "Look at the bright side. You can always get a job as a stripper." (Oh snap!) Score: a round of sevens.
