Nikki Bella's Dancing With The Stars

– Nikki Bella’s latest performance on Dancing With the Stars was good enough to keep her safe from elimination. WWE.com reports that Bella received a thirty-six out of forty score for her tango with partner Artem Chigvintsev. The site’s write-up of the performance is below:

Nikki Bella isn’t hanging up her dancing shoes just yet! The Superstar is still in the hunt for the Mirror Ball Trophy on “Dancing with the Stars” after an Argentine Tango on Movie Night of Season 25 of ABC’s reality hit.

Nikki received a 36 out of 40 for the foreign film-influenced tango with professional partner Artem Chigvintsev, bringing a dreamy, French twist to the ballroom, as John Cena, Brie Bella, Maryse and mom Kathy watched from the audience.

“That was so romantic, what you would expect from a foreign film, from a foreign language – the language of love,” guest judge Shania Twain said of the dance, which was done to a French song. “That was beautiful, very elegant.”

Judge Bruno Tonioli agreed: “You just presented a little side of yourself that you should explore. It was like a French perfume, intriguing, like it never leaves your mind.”

After the judges’ scores and comments, Nikki and Artem were informed early on Monday’s episode that they were safe from elimination!
