 Sandwich and the Return of Tony Dovolani

Last night season 14 Dancing with the Stars introduced the first ever trio dances in which the pro partner selected another eliminated professional or DWTS Troupe dancer to perform with them and their star. It’s an interesting concept and somehow it worked! The trio performances were kicked off by Donald Driver, Peta Murgatroyd, and….Karina Smirnoff! If there was anything hotter than Donald and Peta it’s Donald, Peta, and Karina! The girls looked great in matching gold fringe and Donald handled two partners well.

Derek Hough decided to introduce Henry Byalikov, a DWTS Troupe member, into his Bollywood inspired samba with Maria Menounos. I love Bollywood but the performance was a little strange and did not take advantage of every girls dream, which is dancing with two well-built men at the same time! Luckily, Melissa Gilbert really lived the dream in her sexiest number yet dancing between the Chmerkovisky brothers. I still think it’s time for her to go but she really flourished with two men by her side!

Interestingly, Roshon Fegan and William Levy were partnered with male dancers Sasha Faber (another DWTS Troupe member) and Tony Dovolani respectively. Chelsie Hightower hoped another male dancer would bring out Roshon’s masculinity and Cheryl Burke wanted to highlight William’s talent by putting him alongside a male pro. While the two gentleman stars got out of sync with their male partners, they both stepped up to the plate and did a great job.

Read on to see how the final scores stacked up for both performances. What did you think? Did you enjoy the trio dances and would you like to see them do this again on the next season of Dancing with the Stars or was it just weird to see a third person performing partner dances?
