Bindi got boxed in, Nick made a fantastic comeback, Carlos was hot with a rope, and Alex was noble perfection! All the sparkle, energy, amazing dancing, great music and giant dance floor come together for a superb night that I will never forget. Dancing With The Stars is an impressive glittery show that you have to watch!
So here is a big confession: I had never watched Dancing with the Stars. I started about two weeks ago when I found out I was invited to live tapping of the show. Boy was I missing out! Last Monday I was privileged to be among the audience for the Dancing With The Stars semi-final. Can you underline and say WOW?????!!!!!
We started off the night with a giant party right on the shiny dance floor of the show. Yes, I did make great use of my dancing shoes that night and swayed non-stop until it was time to take our seats for the show to begin. Before I knew it I was rooting hard for the competitors and all over the mega professional dance moves I witnessed.
Not only did I get to see live out of this world dancing, I also got to know a bit more of the dancers with powerful videos that quite frankly were very touching. The stories of the competitors pulled at my heart strings and gave me ammunition to cheer them on louder every time. I did boo the judges a couple of times although the truth is that they are spot on with their commentary.
I love how these dances do bring out so much of the contestants. I was struck with how Nick seemed to be enjoying his salsa so much, Bindi totally let loose with her moves, and Alek owning his patriotism. Carlos shone through to me as very competitive positive and driven.
Now that we know I will never ever miss a Dancing with the Stars episode, I am ready and inviting you to watch the two night final on 11/23 and 11/24. You need to go watch it! It is now down to Bindi, Carlos, Nick, and Alek. Cheer them on and don’t forget to vote for your fave!
