dancing-with-the-stars dwtsYeah!  We made it to the Semi-Finals! The competition was on and the dance floor was on fire!  Woo Hoo! Who would survive the Semi-Finals? Before that would be known, a lot dancing had to happen!

The judges were there to help each of the final four! With two rounds of competition, we started off with Rumer and Val. They danced a Viennese Waltz with much power and drama. I felt as if I were watching a dramatic play! The judges loved it! How could they not? They so nailed it! They ended with a 38. I wanted to give them a perfect score!!!!

Noah and Sharna were up next with a Viennese Waltz. They were adorable and so graceful on the dance floor! The judges saw Noah’s ease and fun on the dance floor! Noah was so amazing that he received a long standing ovation! They graced the judges hearts with a total of 36! Noah proposed to his girlfriend Jamie right after the judges scores! There was not a dry eye anywhere! Oh yes, I cried! It was just beautiful and so touching! His words to Jamie were so sweet, gentle, and loving! Oh wow, ok, I had to dry it up!

Riker and Allison were up dancing a Contemporary routine. They were smooth and intense!  I could not wait to see the judges results. Incredible, raw, vulnerable, great performance, and “who was the pro” were the comments from the judges!  With a perfect score, Riker was blown away!

Nastia was up next with Sasha. Nastia felt bad about the way America had perceived her demeanor. They had a Quickstep that was full of so much energy and joy! Wow! That blew me away! She was on fire! Speed and control, a true dancer, glowing blonde bomb shell, and “just wow” were the comments from the judges! They clicked their heels away with a perfect score! I knew it!  Derek announced that he would be dancing the 2nd dance with Nastia.

Now, we got to see which judge was assisting which star. The judges choice is a new element that was added to DWTS.  Bruno planned every part of the routine for Rumer and Val. Carrie Ann planned the dance for Noah and Sharna. Julianne planned the dance for Riker and Allison. Then, Len planned the dance for Nastia and Derek.

Rumer and Val were first up. Bruno planned a Contemporary Fusion dance with a ballet flare.  Dramatic and beautiful were my comments! Beautiful, amazing lift, and “you are an amazing dancer” were the comments from the judges. They flowed off the dance floor with a perfect score totaling 30.

Noah and Sharna were next under the direction of Carrie Ann. Carrie Ann had them do a Paso Doble. The dance was very intense and full of emotions! This was definitely Noah’s best dance and the judges agreed; they were amazing! Noah and Sharna received their first perfect score!

Riker and Allison were directed by Julianne. She planned the Argentine Tango for them.   They started off with a dance-off between Julianne and Allison. The tight and sharp movements made by Riker were exacting! The judges were over the top with amazement!   Their Argentine Tango scored them another perfect score!

Nastia and Derek were the last to dance, and they would be dancing with Len! Yup, that is right, Len was on the dance floor! Len arranged for Nastia, Derek, and himself to dance the Viennese Waltz. With elegance and grace, this dance was just beautiful! With such a memorable, graceful, and skillful dance performance, the judges were in tears! They also received a perfect score. Instead of the 10 from Len, we got (3) 10’s for Len!

Wow!  We saw an amazing night on the dance floor!   One couple will be eliminated on Tuesday, May 12th!  Then, onward to the Finals!  So until then, dance like no one is watching!
