Dita von Tesse replaced by Terence Telle

To compensate for the absence of Dita von Teese, the production of “Dance with the stars” called on Terence Telle, the model who had finished third in season 9. He danced with Inès Vandamme. A choice imposed by the need to dance in a quartet. The absence of a candidate for health reasons is not a first in “Dancing with the stars”. Pamela Anderson had missed a bounty due to a leg injury. She had not been replaced for the bonus.

Dance for two and four

For this eighth number of “Dance with the stars”, the candidates were separated into three “teams” and had to dance in pairs, as every week, and in four, which had never happened in the emission.

Aurélie Pons presented a contemporary dance on “Versus” by Vitaa and Slimane; Tayc danced a quick step on “I need you” by Jon Batiste; at four, Aurélie Pons, Tayc, Adrien Caby and Fauve Hautot danced a paso doble on “Smoke on the water” by 2WEI; Gérémy Crédeville danced a quick step on Julien Doré’s “Limits”; in quartet, Gérémy Crédeville, Terence Tell, Candice Pascal and Inès Vandamme offered a contemporary dance on “Mesdames” by Grand corps sick; Michou offered an american smooth on Journey’s “Don’t stop believin ‘”; Bilal Hassani moved on a chacha to the sound of “Rain on me” by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande; at four, Michou, Bilal Hassani, Elsa Bois and Jordan Mouillerac danced a Charleston on “Around the world” by Daft Punk.

The face-to-face was between three candidates: the Youtubeur Michou, the singer Bilal Hassani and the comedian Gérémy Crédeville. With their partners, they defended their place on the same dance and the same music: “Let’s love” by Sia and David Guetta.

Viewers decided to save Michou. As for the jury, it preferred to keep Bilal Hassani. It is therefore the comedian Gérémy Crédeville and his dancer, the Agenaise Candice Pascal, who left the show.

The candidates still in the running will play in the quarter-finals of “Dance with the Stars” next week.
