Watch Jennifer Grey dance an emotional and flawless waltz with partner Derek Hough on the Dancing With The Stars semi-finals. Jennifer Grey’s waltz earned her scores of 10 from each of the three DWTS judges, giving her a perfect 30 for the second round of dances on the Dancing With The Stars semi-finals.
Before tonight’s waltz, Jennifer Grey talked about growing up and always wanting to be on Broadway. She got even more bit by the dancing bug while filming her hit movie, Dirty Dancing, and then while vacationing in Ireland with then boyfriend, Matthew Broderick, Jennifer Grey got into a terrible car accident. She wound up having plates and screws put into her neck, and it hasn’t been the same since.
You’d never know that Jennifer Grey had an injury after watching tonight’s waltz. The judges couldn’t have spoken more highly of her performance.
Bruno said it was “a gem of a waltz.” Len added, “A whisper can speak louder than a shout. If I’m dreaming, don’t wake me up.” And Carrie Ann said that Jennifer’s waltz was “one of the most beautiful things she’d ever seen.”
Jennifer Grey wasn’t sure that her neck could handle Dancing With The Stars, but she moved past her injury and is definitely one of the front runners on DWTS. Honestly, I think that we will all be totally shocked if she doesn’t wind up in the finals.
