Sharna Burgess definitely was put to the test during the Oct. 13 episode of ‘DWTS,’ when the switch up paired her with one of our fave singers, Andy Grammer. However, she was beyond impressed with the connection he made. Read her exclusive blog here.
Sparks flew on the sexy Switch Up week of Dancing with the Stars — at least between Alek Skarlatos and Emma Slater! However, it wasn’t so easy for everyone! Our girl Sharna Burgess had to let go of Nick Carter for the week — which obviously is not an easy task, while she joined another singer, Andy Grammer. So, how’d she feel about their performance?
Well switch up week is never easy but Andy and I really had fun with this one. As pro dancers, we want to do the celebrity justice but they also want to make their pro partner very proud in what they achieve. There was a lot of pressure for me to step up to the plate with Andy, but I knew he already had a lot of potential in him and Allison had already done such a great job, and I wanted to continue to that momentum for them.
I think Andy really connected well to the intention of the character of the Argentine Tango he really embodied the essence of the dance, and got swept up in the story and I feel like that is why his performance was so special tonight and just wowed everybody.
I was also incredibly proud of Nick and Whitney! Paso is a great dance for him — he looked really strong and really clean, but I understand the judges’ comments and I’m really excited to get him back next week and put all of that feedback to work in rehearsals, and hopefully we can improve in all areas in the coming weeks.
Overall it was a very special night, not just for me, but for all the performers! I’m so excited for next week and look forward continue on this amazing journey with Nick on DWTS! Get ready for more from #TeamSharNick!!
Lots of love,
Keep coming back every week for more exclusives from Sharna & Nick!
