Vanessa Lachey and Maks Chmerkovskiy dance next, performing a foxtrot to “Hit Me with a Hot Note” by Tami Tappan Damiano. Lachey continues to get used to Chmerkovskiy’s teaching style, which demands perfection.
Len Goodman says that he liked the dance, while Bruno Tonioli calls Lachey a “love goddess.” He adds that she is the “foxiest.” Carrie Ann Inaba calls her a superstar and compares her movements to “liquid gold.” They score a 24 out of 30.
