Celebrity: Harry Jowsey

Claim to Fame: Too Hot to Handle

Pro: Rylee Arnold

Dance: Viennese Waltz

Song:  I Have Nothing

Sammi: it is a good idea to put Harry in a ballet class. It would have been more hilarious if he were in a class with little kids like Lassiter did in Psych.

He really seems to be taking the critique he gets to heart…..this is a vast improvement from what we have seen from him in past weeks. I am sooooo proud of him and all the progress he has made thus far.

As an aside, Rylee’s dress is gorgeous.

Derek: There were some breakthrough moments for him…just like he saw in his dream last night.

Billy: He has grown exponentially.

Bruno: The NYC Ballet is calling and loves him!

Carrie Ann: She is seeing true grace from him.
