For Most Important Year of Your Life theme week, Katherine Jenkins and “Dancing With the Stars” partner Mark Ballas danced a waltz to Josh Groban’s “To Where You Are” to honor Katherine’s dad’s passing in 1996. It was very emotional – everybody was in tears.
We will say, however – before Len even critiqued the dance, we had written in our notes that there wasn’t enough “waltz” in this waltz. And he was right to point that out, saying, “It was danced with grace and it was danced with elegance … I could easily go the other way regarding this, because for me there wasn’t enough dancing in ballroom hold … Katherine is so great when she’s in hold, so if we come to another one of these dances, just remember that.” But it was still a beautiful dance.
The judges and audience still loved it. Carrie Ann and Bruno gave out the first 10s of the season, while Len gave it a 9, which from him is practically a 10. Will Katherine be getting your votes, “DWTS” fans?
