Nene looked ridiculous as she jumped around barefoot with a glitter corset and red headband. She did most of the leading, poor Derek was dragged around the dance floor with their performance ending with Derek bowing at Nene’s feet.
Fans voted online after last week’s show to mix up the pairings, so instead of dancing with professional partner Tony Dovolani, Leakes was matched with Derek Hough for Monday’s show only. The audience didn’t know the new partners until performance time.
Nene earned the highest scores since the competition began. The pair received all 8’s from the judges for a total of 32.
