DWTS2012 Drew Lachey’s New Sense of Focus And Determination Cue “Rocky”

Drew Lachey writes of how this past week getting ready for week 2 of Dancing With The Stars has been an “eventful – and stressful – week, to say the least”. He’s not ready to go home and he and Anna have “turned it up a notch”. Below is more on their Jive tonight “cue the Rocky music”.

After finding ourselves in the bottom two, and facing elimination, Anna and I have turned things up a notch. We have always worked hard, but there has been a new sense of focus and determination (cue the Rocky music). This is a new week with a new dance, and it is going to be a new outcome … hopefully.

Our dance this week is the jive – a fast, rhythmic, challenging dance that takes a lot of stamina. I am very excited about this because these are the kinds of dances that I feel I can do pretty well. I really like our music, but this ain’t your grandmama’s jive. Everything about it is a little rough around the edges. Just the way I like it.

The energy around the rehearsal studio is still fun, but you can tell that all of the couples are really focused on this week. Last week was a wake-up call that anybody could go home at any time.

I can only speak for myself, but I am nowhere close to being ready to leave the ballroom. This show is a lot of fun, and I love dancing with Anna. Hopefully we’ll be able to impress the judges and the audience with our jive and remember everybody: vote, vote, vote.
