On last week’s show Amber was given a 28/30 for her Rumba routine.

Amber Riley and professional dancer Derek Hough: dancing a Salsa. Amber said this about her dances this week: “We have two dances next week: a quickstep and a salsa. Our salsa is a trio dance, so we got to pick a past professional dancer or a troupe dancer to join in and we chose the ever so talented Mark Ballas! This rehearsals are fun and full of energy and creative ideas!”
Judges comments: Len “Tonight is the beginning of the end, so I am hoping everyone is bringing out everything. I know you have an injury, your choreography was terrific however for me you were a little loose in your top lines.” Bruno “Your performance level is always up, but now as we are getting to the semi-finals, you need to fix your top line otherwise it spoils the beauty of your face.” Carrie Ann “The good news is that you set the standard for this competition, but you need to keep it up to that level.”
