DWTS 10 - Week 9

It's the semi-finals! Four couples are still dancing. Tonight each couple performs a ballroom and Latin dance.

Erin & Maks - Viennese Waltz - pretty, elegant, and smooth. Erin danced very well and has improved so much. Praise from the judges.
Paso Doble - I liked their paso. It wasn't as passionately intense as some but was entertaining
Scores: 9/9/9 = 27 and 10/9/10 = 29
Total: 56

Nicole & Derek - Argentine Tango - Derek hurt his neck again, but you couldn't tell when he danced. Oh wow! That was precise, beautiful, and intense! And she looks so good, too! Bruno was over the top even more than he usually is. She moved Carrie Ann to tears, and got high praise from Len!
Cha-Cha - Lively, energetic, and fun! Wow!
Scores: 10/10/10 = 30 and 10/9/10 = 29
Total: 59

Chad & Cheryl - Waltz -They danced it smoothly and elegantly. Good job! Chad is the only semi-finalist with no dance experience, and he's doing really well.
Samba - Chad had a rough life but focused on a way out and made it. His dedication and hard work paid off, and he paid attention to Cheryl's teaching and can dance! Great moves during the samba which were even more obvious after he took off his shirt! What a body!
Scores: 9/9/9 = 27 and 8/8/9 = 25
Total: 52

Evan and Anna - Foxtrot - Evan dances technically so well but doesn't seem to have much personality. At first I thought he was very polite, which he is, but now he seems boring. He was more fun tonight and let go some but I'm over him. He said he is shy, so maybe that's it.
Paso Doble - Well, he did danced this paso with intensity and passion (yes, actually). Good grief, I think he kissed Anna on the lips there at the end of it. If he didn't, it really looked that way. No lipstick on him, so maybe it was illusion. Powerful dance! The judges were effusive.
Scores: 10/9/10 = 29 and 10/10/10 = 30
