David and Salome wowed the judges by dancing the paso doble to the Led Zeppelin classic, Whole Lotta Love.

“A great male paso double has to be able to do one thing, combine the masculine with the feminine. And you did that immaculately,” shared Brian.

While Loraine noted: “I would just like a moment, a breath just to expand and leave us waiting for a second more and then hit us together.”

Following their win in last week’s dance-off, Katja and Ervinas danced the salsa to Mandinda’s tropical version of Dua Lipa’s, Levitating.

“Last week you were in the dance-off and the only way to come back is to come out fighting and that’s exactly what you did,” shared Brian. “You make difficult things look easy, you have such naturalism to the things you do.”

While Arthur said: “You and the salsa are like two peas in a pod because you just gel so well together. The way you move your body is absolutely amazing.”

Their performance earned them a total of 28 points, receiving yet another 10 from Arthur.
