Bruno Tonioli said, “I love the blend of Circ du Soleil and Dirty Dancing. Your chemistry never shone better [than] tonight. Patrick [Swayze], I’m telling you, is smiling on you.”

Carrie Ann Inaba was also very moved by the performance, with only Len Goodman saying that, while “spell-binding,” the routine lacked originality.
