“Dancing with the Stars” has reached another semi finals with five couples – James and Sharna, Calvin and Lindsay, Terra and Sasha, Jana and Gleb and Laurie and Val – looking to make it to the finale.
James is reunited with Sharna for an Argentine Tango where he blindfolds her and she performs the dance blind and ends with James in a handstand. Host Tom Bergeron said the performance was amazing, adding that it looked like they didn’t know anyone else was in the room. Julianne called the performance sensational, adding that the dance was controlled, sexy, dynamic and passionate. Bruno said the race for the finals is on and it was not an Argentinian Tango but an Argentinian Grand Prix, adding there was skill and trust in the partnering with no unnecessary moves and it was spot on. Carrie Ann said that James nailed the risky parts but wobbled a bit in the beginning. James and Sharna scored 29 points on their dance.
Terra and Sasha performed a Rumba that brought tears to the eyes of Carrie Ann and Sasha. Bruno said that Terra really was terrific with movement, fluidity, great content and great hip action. Carrie Ann said that Terra took her breath away, adding that it was a beautiful Rumba with every movement executed with the utmost care. Julianne said that they were filled with emotion, adding the dance had hip action and she saw moves that she had not seen Terra do all season. Terra and Sasha earned a perfect score of 30 for their dance.
Jana and Gleb performed a Quickstep. Carrie Ann noted that it was a little bit of a rough start in the beginning, but the rest of the dance was beautiful. Carrie Ann noted that Jana has grown the most this season. Noting that you can tell it’s the semi finals, Julianne said that they did a proper Quickstep. Agreeing that it was a proper Quickstep, Bruno said that the dance was elegant, glamorous and full of content. Jana and Gleb scored 28 points for their dance.
Next up was Calvin and Lindsay with a Tango. Calling the dance great, Julianne said they had attack, passion, and the chemistry was on fire. Bruno noted that Jana went for it with power and determination even though he had a few stumbles. Carrie Ann loved that Calvin tried for the high content but felt Calvin overpowered Lindsay. Calvin and Lindsay had the lowest score of the night with 26 points.
Laurie and Val finished out the first round with an emotional Foxtrot. Laurie’s grandma died last week, one day after an interview with her. Carrie Ann said that the dance had incredible content and Laurie delivered it with so much passion. Julianne said that the performance exceeded what Laurie is and the dance celebrated her grandma’s life.

In round two, the trio dances return and for James and Sharna the choice of a third partner was an easy one – Jenna, the person who stood in when Sharna was out. With a little help from James’ race car, the trio performed a Jive that had the house raising the roof. Noting the hop pit crew, Julianne said that James was so in sync and on time. Bruno said that James was still in top gear and never lost timing, adding that he loved it. Carrie Ann noted that they were so in unison.

Singing “This girl is on fire,, Julianne said that she loves watching Terra. Terra and Sasha earned their second perfect score of the night for a perfect total of 60 points.
Jana and Gleb chose Alan, the man who stepped in to help out when Gleb was injured, for a Paso Doble. A blown away Carrie Ann said that Jana was true artistry in motion, adding that Jana was never in more control. Julianne said that there was a fire in Jana they had never seen. Bruno called Jana a mistress of the dark arts and a she-devil from the enchanted forest. Jana and Gleb continued the parade of perfect scores for a total of 58 points.
Calvin and Lindsay chose Lindsay’s best friend, Witney, for their trio Samba. Julianne called it one spicy Salsa that was pure fun.

Calvin and the “Doublemint twins” earned a perfect score for their trio dance and a total of 56 points.
