[HD] Nicole Scherzinger & Derek – Quickstep DWTS Week 3 // Dancing With The Stars 2010

www.watchdancingwithstars.com Fastest upload of DWTS Season 10 every week, Subscribe for updates! Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough: Quickstep Talk about “maracas”! Nicole and Derek are dancing to “Anything Goes,” so they’re going to be sailors slacking off in a slapstick-y vaudeville routine. Nicole wants to challenge herself every week, so they pretend that she’s bad. I mean, she stresses out about looking like an idiot. She does not. It’s a lively, spirited routine, but it’s more like a freestyle than a quickstep with the random jumping, kicking and side-dancing sequences. She does all of it well, of course, staying in sync with Derek the whole way. Len chews them out for taking “Anything Goes” too literally and chastises them for no not doing a proper quickstep. Bruno calls it an incredible performance, but agrees with Len and says they should’ve at least kept hold. Carrie Ann docks them for lifts and broken holds, but wants front-row seats when they take the act on the road. Score: 23 Dancing With The Stars – Season 10 Episode 5 ( 04/05/2010 ) The Season 10 recruits and their partners: Buzz Aldrin (astronaut) and Ashly Costa (formerly Ashly delgrosso) Pamela Anderson (actress; Baywatch alum) and Damian Whitewood (new pro) Erin Andrews (ESPN reporter) and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Kate Gosselin (former Jon & Kate Plus 8 matriarch) and Tony Dovolani Evan Lysacek (Olympic gold medalist figure skater) and Anna Trebunskaya Niecy Nash (comedian-actress) and Louis van Amstel Chad
