Melissa Gilbert danced the Samba tonight for her first dance as Dancing With The Stars continued with its eighth episode. The competition is really heating up as the remaining six couples hit the ballroom tonight with two rounds of competitive dance performances, a ballroom dance and the Trio dance — both of which will be a style that they’ve not yet performed.
We recapped the tonight’s show for you and if you want to see how all the couples did go HERE! Did you see Melissa’s performance last week if you missed it you can see it here!
Melissa Gilbert and professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy dancing the Foxtrot. Maks had this to say about their performance tonight, “Everybody had to choose a third person to dance with the Latin round next week. ‘Cause we’re doing two – we’re doing ballroom and the Latin. Our Latin is Samba and she picked Val. I had nothing to do with this choice.”
