On tonight’s Semi-Finals of Dancing With The Stars the couples competed in two rounds of dance. For his first round Corbin Bleu danced a Tango for a dance style he had not previously performed. Check out Leah’s DWTS bio right here. If you missed tonight’s show you can read a full and detailed recap, right here.
Tonight the couples had to rise to a new challenge and perform to two different versions of the same song. In the first round of competition, the couples will perform either a Jazz, Paso Doble, Cha Cha or Tango routine to an original or “plugged” version of their selected song. In round two of competition, the couples will perform either a Viennese Waltz, Argentine Tango or Rumba routine to an acoustic or “unplugged” version of that same song. Maksim Chmerkovskiy returns to the ballroom and for the first time participates as guest judge.
On last week’s show Corbin was given a 28/30 for his Waltz. Carrie Anne said about his performance, “You both weren’t on your centers, you were a bit off.” Len “It is so expressive, it is like poetry in motion but I would have liked more in hold. Drive more on the heel in the slows, but a great number.” If you missed any of last week’s performances, you can check out all the videos, right HERE.

As a Tango it wasn’t really my cup of tea..” Bruno: You had so much drive, so much intent, so much passion, that it was almost untamable.” Maksim: “Content was amazing, and the fairy dust, whatever it was, was awesome.”
