But, Carrie Ann Inaba said he lost focus while dancing and that it didn't come together for her this week.
This week the nine remaining contestants on Dancing With The Stars had to prove their resilience while performing either the Paso Doble or the Viennese waltz.
Chuck Wicks and partner/girlfriend Julianne Hough had the chance to perform a romantic Viennese waltz this week.
Judge Len Goodman thought that Chuck had finally come out of his hibernation and performed much better than the previous weeks.
Bruno Tonioli encouraged Chuck to keep his confidence all the way through his routine to earn a better score.
He received two 7's and a 6, giving him a grand total of 20 for the night.
After falling from the top, gymnast Shawn Johnson wanted to redeem herself this week with the Viennese waltz.Shawn and partner Mark Ballas performed a simple routine that wowed the judges.Unfortunately, the football star could only channel so much.Carrie Ann said his movement was very limited and it was made even more difficult by the music selection.Len agreed that the intensity was there, but the dance quality was not.Bruno, never one for tact, said the routine started out terrible, but eventually got better towards the end.
