Dancing With the Stars Week Eight: “America’s Choice”

Dancing With the StarsThis week on Dancing With the Stars it was America’s Choice! This means that the viewers got a say in the dance, song, outfits, hair, and concept to what the couples were doing. After that the couples chose another dancer to help them in their trio dances!

We’re also getting closer and closer to the semi-finals and the pressure is on for all the couples to stay in the competition. However, they’ll have to wait until tomorrow night’s double elimination results show.

This week’s scores:

Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Tango
Song: “Geronimo” – Sheppard
Score: 31
When choosing the concept for the dance many people originally wanted to see a military concept. However, Noah said he can’t do that as he can’t just wear a costume and that if he was going to wear a military uniform it would need to be under military regulation. So instead we got to see Noah and Sharna all dressed up in a beautiful white suit and dress.
