I’m glad no one was eliminated during the semi-finals of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ on Nov. 16. Here’s why the final four couples deserve to be there.
After Tamar Braxton and partner Val Chmerkovskiy were forced to withdraw after the Nov. 9 episode, Dancing with the Stars fans were wondering if a previously eliminated contestant would be brought back or if only three couples would advance to the finals. Luckily, the four semi-finalists all advanced, and I think this was the right decision. Here’s why.
Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough continue to improve every single week. As one of the judges commented, Bindi is a bright light in a dark, scary world. Her infectious personality was even more welcome this week, after the Paris attacks happened just three days before the live show.
Similarly, Alek Skarlatos is a hero. He saved countless lives stopping terrorists on a Paris-bound train in August. He and partner Lindsay Arnold danced a waltz to “America the Beautiful” and it was truly breathtaking. He got a well-deserved perfect score.
I thought Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson deserved higher than the 28 out of 30 score they received for their contemporary piece to “Drag Me Down” by One Direction. Carlos was swinging in mid-air on a rope for crying out loud!
All four couples have proved their different strengths throughout the season. I want either Bindi or Carlos to win, since, in my opinion, they are the best dancers and have the most personality on the dance floor.
