PureDWTS Season 23 “Eye Of The Tiger” Semi-Finals – Media, Scores, And Interviews

Wow, what a night! All the dances were so good. However, I was so sad to see Terra and Sasha eliminated, but, this is one couple I will never forget anytime soon. What a firecracker she was. She indeed is the “eye of the tiger” in every way in life and she taught us about never giving in at any cost no matter what life and other people throw at you. Sasha couldn’t have been the most perfect partner for her. He was so sweet and loving. The cuteness factor between was off the hook every week. What’s more, their dances were phenomenal. WELL DONE Sasha and Terra! We will never forget you!

So, let’s review the scores….

Laurie & Val 30 (10, 10, 10), Trio 30 (10, 10, 10)
James & Sharna 29 (9, 10, 10), Trio 30 (10, 10, 10)
Terra & Sasha 30 (10, 10, 10) Trio 30 (10, 10, 10) Eliminated
Jana & Gleb 28 (9, 9, 10), Trio 30 (10, 10, 10)
Calvin & Lindsay 26 (8, 9, 9), Trio 30 (10, 10, 10)

Now onto some media and interviews. First see People and ET Online for a recap and some thoughts from the couples.

Fox News also interviewed the couples. Below is a take with Calvin & Lindsay and Sharna and James. Be sure to read the link for more from the others.

He and partner Lindsay Arnold had a slip in their first routine, causing Judge Julianne Hough to exclaim, “Oh, shoot! I’m so upset.”

After the show, Arnold explained to FOX411, “We both got a little excited. We both did more rotations than we’ve ever done. We just had a little moment.” They came back strong in the second dance.

Meanwhile, race car driver James Hinchcliffe wound up the night second to Hernandez after an Argentine tango that scored 29–and 30 points for a polished jive trio dance for a total of 59.

On camera, his girlfriend Rebecca Dalton told how they had met in high school and his fellow race car driver friends remembered Hinchcliffe’s determination to come back from a near-fatal crash last year.

Hinchcliffe was thrilled to be dancing again with his original partner Sharna Burgess after she had to sit out two weeks with an injured knee.

Burgess told reporters backstage after the time off, “I feel really strong….I think our reunion dance was pretty epic…[I have] no pain whatsoever. I got the best treatment available in the country with Dr. William Seeds in Ohio.”
