DWTS 14 Week 4: Sherri Shepherd tangles with the tango (VIDEO)

On “Dancing with the Stars” season 14, Sherri Shepherd didn’t exactly rock Rock Week. While Shepherd showed she could light up the stage the first week with her foxtrot and even bring a little drama from her life with her rumba last week, this week the tango and her tangled.

That might have been partially the problem with Rock Week and also partially Val Chmerkovskiy’s strategy. They danced to “Cum On Feel the Noize” by Quiet Riot. Her boots seemed to be too much for her because we know she can handle heels. She was able to rock it out on the judges’ table, but the steps on the ballroom floor were a bit wild.

Head judge Len Goodman commented that although he loved the start, the routine didn’t suit her bubbly personality. He thought she coped well, but that isn’t going to be enough with this tough field.

Bruno Tonioli asked her slyly “Voulez-vous coucher avec mois?” But he also felt her moves needed to be a bit sharper.

Carrie Ann Inaba agreed with Goodman saying that the routine lacked Shepherd’s usual exuberance. She thought Shepherd’s face was expressionless.

For the female fans, we did get to see Val’s chest and like Shepherd, we can fully appreciate it. Did you like the tattoo across Val’s chest?
