Dancing With The Stars Semi-Finals Recap for 11/12/18

Tonight is semi-finals night for ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. Tonight, our final six couples will dance twice—one new dance and one judge’s choice,

Round One aka Dedication Round

Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess have the salsa. They dedicate it to the fans that have rough them this far,

The dance has a wild concert feel to it. I feel like this is the most confident he has ever been on the show. He seems like he let it all out and had the time of his life. I just think it was a bit too short and that the extra dancers took away from an otherwise fun dance.

Len says he knows how to give them entertainment and fun.

Bruno thinks it looked like he crashed a Victoria’s Secret show.

Carrie Ann thinks he came a long way despite being off time.

Scores:  7-7-7=21 out of 30

Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten do the waltz dedicated to Alan. The rain theme reminds me of Jana and Gleb’s dance from a few seasons ago. That being said, she proved that she belongs in the semi and regular finals with this dance. What a powerful performance.

Bruno thinks it was beautiful.

Carrie Ann calls them out on a lift, nut otherwise enjoyed it.

Len wanted to see more waltz in the routine.

Scores: 9-9-10=28 out of 30

Grocery Store Joe and Jenna Johnson dedicate their contemporary routine to the women in his life. It gets a bit awkward because it is a bit sensual, so he dedicates the night itself to his mom and grandma and the dance to his girlfriend Kendall. It is by far his best dance of the season because he just let go and let it all out.

Bruno thinks it was efficient.

Juan Pablo di Pace and Cheryl Burke dance their Argentine Tango to his mom. She is a breast cancer survivor who beat the odds. He once again proved that he is in it to win it, but the best part was him hugging his mom at the end.

Len just gets up and leads the standing ovation.

Bruno thinks it was the best dance he’s seen on the show.

Carrie Ann thinks he was in a class of his own.

Len loved it.

Milo Manheim and Witney Carson end the first round with their Argentine Tango dedicated to his mom. This is by far the best Argentine Tango we have EVER seen on the show, including Juan Pablo’s. My jaw is on the floor from start to finish.

Len loves how he stayed true to himself.

Bruno loved it.

Scores: 9-9-9=27 out of 30

Round 2: Judge’s Choice

Bobby and Sharna have Len choose their dance. He wants to see their jive and givers them pointers to make it better. I have to say, his advice paid off! The dance was even better the second time around. We not only got better dancing, but we got his personality in spades.

Bruno compared them to rattlesnakes.
