DWTS 14 Week 2: Jack Wagner rocks his jive (VIDEO)

You got to give it to Jack Wagner. He’s trying hard and he has to lead! What he didn’t seem to realize, at least physically, on his jive was that there’s a difference between nightclub dancing and ballroom dancing.

Jack Wagner was definitely willing to get down as he danced to “Gimme Some Lovin” by The Spencer Davis Group. Funny, I always thought the song was “Give Me Summer Loving” and I’ve been singing it wrong for a while.

Wagner is loose and full of energy, but that translates as a bit sloppy for the jive.

Len Goodman commented that he liked the content of the performance and Wagner’s attitude and energy, but lamented the loss of control. Wagner’s performance was deemed acceptable.

Bruno Tonioli commented that those bedeviling kicks and flicks weren’t on the beat.

Carrie Ann Inaba thought Wagner had overdanced it which put him out of sync with the music and Trebunskaya.

I don’t think Wagner will be going home despite this team being third from the bottom. Soap opera fans should keep him in for next week. We like him and think he has possibilities. He definitely has been dance skills than Gavin DeGraw who with his partner Karina Smirnoff received the same score (21) for the jive.
