Last week on Dancing with the Stars, Antonio Brown wowed the judges with his Disney-themed jazz routine, earning a season-best 35 out of 40 points. This week, Brown and his competitors were thrown a curve ball. Everyone had to dance with a different partner. Brown's partner this week was Karina Smirnoff, who normally dances with retired NFL quarterback Doug Flutie,
Going into the routine, Karina Smirnoff said of Brown, via Steelers.com, "He is very natural. He has a lot of natural ability. Antonio is incredible. He picks up choreography super fast. His biggest weapon is his charm and smile."
Brown and Smirnoff danced to Son of a Preacher Man. While he received some praise for his showmanship, he was slammed for his technique and form, or lack thereof. Brown and Smirnoff, like a few of the other couples Monday Night, did not showcase the technical aspects of their dances. In other words, Brown's cha-cha was not very cha-cha-like.
Brown's scores were 7, 7, 6 and 6.
