William Levy and professional dancer Cheryl Burke dancing the Tango

Judges Comments: Len: I have not been so excited since my Mom put me in long trousers. I think this is going to be the best semi-finals ever. Great job!Bruno: You were liked the dictator of the tango. For me it was ace. Carrie Ann: Last week you definitely proved to everyone you are more than a pretty face. Your lines are perfect, you are beautiful. There was one tiny mistake. But everything else was amazing.

Scores: Carrie Ann: 9 Len: 9 Bruno: 10 = 28/30

Katherine Jenkins and professional dancer Mark Ballas dancing the Quickstep

Judges Comments: Bruno: WOW – Fantastic! The best example of the 20’s razzle dazzle. Carie Ann: In order to bring it to the finals you have to bring your A game and I don’t think you did that – you brought your A+ game. That might be the best dance I ever seen on DWTS. Len: I knew you could sing, but Katherine you can dance. There was a little foot error but I do apologize I have to bring it up – but want a fabulous number!

Scores: Carrie Ann: 10 Len: 9 Bruno: 10 = 29/30

Donald Driver and professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd dancing the Waltz

Carrie Ann: It was so dreamy. It’s so nice to see you, last week I wanted  the emotion on the dance floor and this week you brought it. Unfortunately there were a few times when your feet missed it.  It was beautiful and I loved it and it was still a mesmerizing dance.  Len:  When I was watching your dance it brought me back to a different era, an era of grace and elegance. It was beautiful. I would’ve liked to see your head a little more lifted it up.  Bruno:  Donald it is much harder to impress with the waltz that it is with the tango or a quickstep but you did just that. You have a gentle soft quality to it. You are extremely light on your feet and you extended your lines better tonight. I thought you did a fantastic job tonight. I am very impressed.
