Each star had to dance one Latin dance, set to a particular decade style and one ballroom routine. With the semi-finals just one week away, the stakes were high and the tension higher. It still looks like a duel between Nicole and Evan for the mirror ball trophy, the question is who will go with them to the finals: Niecy, Chad or Erin?
The three in the bottom of the pack are of equal caliber, jockeying each week for 3rd, 4th or 5th place. Each must pull out all the stops and at the same time, hope that the leaders have a serious misstep that sends them toppling from the pinnacle of the leader board, opening the way for them to creep up.
Between the ballroom and Latin segments, the dance team of Gary and Rita Gekham demonstrated a futuristic robotic routine that was crisp, sharp and out of this world.
