A DWTS Waltz Celebrates Fatherhood

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a pulling for Mark Ballas and Katherine Jenkins on this season’s Dancing with the Stars.  (How could I pull for anyone else?)

But even if I hadn’t made my decision about whom I’m supporting, I would’ve become their fan during their last performance.  The theme of the week was to pick a year that meant the most to you.  Katherine chose 1996, the year her father died of lung cancer.  If you didn’t get a chance to see the segment celebrating the life of her father, watch it here:

Mark apparently didn’t let her watch this clip before their dance began, because he didn’t want her to get too emotional.  He made a good decision, because their dance scored a 29 out of 30 and was a beautiful and moving tribute to her father.

On Monday night, Mark and Katherine will have to dance the Paso doble.  Tune in to see them dance – and make sure you vote for them.

Go, Mark and Katherine!

    What are your thoughts on Melissa Gilbert’s fate on DWTS ending up in the hands of the doctors?

    If it were me in that situation, I’d follow Brian Urlacher’s approach to having one’s bell rung. I’d tell them I tweaked my knee or something… but I don’t want my fate in a competition hanging on anything more than how I competed.

      We have a rule we’ve agreed on at our house. If DWTS shows an X-ray of the contestant, we refuse to vote for that celebrity. They should be wise enough to take care of their body.

    Nope, sorry! Can’t vote for them because #1)don’t vote just because of the pro and #2)she has had a ton of dance/performance experience and has an unfair advantage. (She’s alos not that popular in UK lately after her public break up with a beloved personality) :( DWTS is about the “journey” and LEARNING how to dance.
    I’ll continue to vote for a couple that is more deserving.

    We were voting for Gladys Knight. Now that she was eliminated, we will vote for Kathryn and Mark. I hope they win.
