As Keaton and Alexis took the stage with a ballroom number choreographed by Pasha Pashkov and Daniella Karagach, they were certainly a bit apprehensive. The number required a bit of chemistry and both dancers had to get in the role. Alexis explained that she got married young, at the age of 18, while Keaton was currently single, waiting for the right person to come along. However, relationships aside, the two were determined to have their chemistry show on stage. While the judges, save for tWitch, felt as though they did a fantastic job, tWitch noted that there was remove for improvement. However, Keaton did garner praise, seeing that this was only his second time ever doing ballroom.

Fans however, thought differently. "Dear Keaton, I love you. That’s all. Goodbye. #SYTYCD Oh, and I’m single so…" tweeted a fan. "A good effort from Keaton, but he was a little too heavy on his feet. Some nice hip action and not bad for 2 lessons! Alexis was KILLING IT. #SYTYCD #soyouthinkyoucandance" added another. 
"Oof. This is rough. Keaton looks awkward. Carriage all wrong. #SYTYCD" observed another.
