We did it! We made it to the finals. I'm so proud of Gilles and how far he's come this season. He does everything with such hard work and determination that it is an honor to be his dance teacher. I've heard people saying that he's the frontrunner in this competition but I know that's not how he feels which is why we work so hard every week to make each dance as perfect as possible.
It is semi-final time and we're all working so hard on our dances in hopes that we make the finals. It's been a really long hard week and its only Friday! Gilles and I have been doing about seven hours a day in the studio and I think its going really well so far. We have the Salsa and the Waltz this week and I'm super excited about our music for these two dances.
We made it through another week. At this point any one of us could be the one's going home and of all the season's I've been on I think this is the season that's hardest to predict. It's nerve wracking to say the least!
So we're down to six couples left vying for the championship and this is the point where people either start to crack or start to rise to the top. We're doing two dances a week now and it is getting intense. So some of us took some time off last night to celebrate at the Hot Hollywood Party. It was a blast -- I stayed out way past my normal bedtime but it was well worth it. I got to meet Fergie for the first time ever and that made my night!
It's getting sadder and sadder to say good-bye to people each week as they are eliminated from the show. With Steve-O gone, I'm not sure how this is going to affect Gilles now that the other half of his bromance will be missing from the red room on Monday night.
Last week was a hard one for us -- we traveled back and forth from Los Angeles to New York and the judges were hard on us for our Jive. While its always easy to sit around and feel sorry for yourself, that's not a luxury we have on this show, because immediately on Tuesday night following the pressline after the show I started working on developing the choreography for our next dance -- the Viennese Waltz.
This week I'm writing to you from New York, where we've been trying to rehearse while Gilles gets ready for a big charity soccer game that he's playing in on Saturday. We flew out on a red-eye right after Tuesday night's show and then we head back to Los Angeles on Sunday to get ready for Monday's performance. It's been go, go, go all week!
The first perfect score of the season! Wow what an honor. But that means we have a lot more pressure on our shoulders to make sure each dance is better than the last one we performed.
Coaching Gilles is so much fun -- he really learns each dance from scratch each week. He wasn't kidding when he said he was my nightmare on Wednesdays! If you could see him on Wednesday and Thursday -- its nothing like what we do on Monday's during the show. The transformation is amazing to watch but it's also a little challenging! But he's a joy to be around that I quickly forget all the frustrations of making Gilles as perfect as possible.
Another week and we're still in the competition! It's so sad to see someone voted off. Especially when it's someone I've grown to adore like Denise. She really is a wonderful woman and she and I got to know each other well so even though she's not going to be with me any more in the Red Room on Monday nights, I know that we'll be seeing a lot of each other.
I'm so proud of Gilles. How amazing was he Monday night? That was the best cha cha he's ever done - the crowd really got him going and all his nerves melted away. I think we can safely assume that Gilles fans are supporting him 100 percent, and that cha cha just netted him some new fans as well.
This is my seventh season on the show and each premiere night is just as exciting as the previous one. It never gets old for me. I still get nervous each and every show -- nervous for my partner. I just want them to do so well and to get comments that are constructive and not too crushing to their egos. This must be what having children feels like!
