Dancing With the Stars 2015 Semi-Finals

Dancing With the Stars

It’s the semi-finals!

This week the couples had two dances to do. Like every week, they had their normal couples dance. They also had their Judge’s Choice dance to do. This dance is one that is coached by one of the four judges and will be judged by the other three.

The competition has been tough from the start, but now they’re competing to go to the finals. Can I be honest? I don’t want any of them to go. Can they just award the trophy to all of them?

Now, because it’s the semi-finals we also get to learn a little more about each of the stars which is both wonderful an slightly sad when you realize that it won’t be long before another of these couples is going home.

The scores for this week:

Rumer Willis and Valentin Chmerkobskiy
Dance: Viennese Waltz
Song: “Earned It” – The Weekend
Score: 38

Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess

Noah proposed! Oh my goodness, that was adorable! As soon as he took her hand and started saying how the song was like what she had done for him, I was like, “Is he gonna… Is he gonna…” And he did! Oh my gosh, congratulations to Noah and Jamie!

Judge’s Choice Dances:

This is the first time this has ever been done. Each of the judges picked one of the couples to mentor this week and were involved in everything, from the dance tot he music to the concept. Absolutely everything.

When it comes to scoring, each of the couples will only be judged by three and the scores will be out of 30 instead of 40.
