Kelly Monaco (Sam, GENERAL HOSPITAL) was declared safe last night on DANCING WITH THE STARS, and enters the semi-finals with partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy. And luckily, she can focus on her upcoming routines fully because she doesn't have to report back to GH until after the DANCING finale on Tuesday, November 27! "I'm excited," Monaco said after last night's results show, "and I can't wait to get the week started."
She may need that extra focus because they were assigned "Surfer" Flamenco, which is an unusual combination to say the least! "Hey, every dance is weird to me!" Monaco admitted. "It's all foreign, so I may as well do something no one else has done."
While Monaco and Chmerkovskiy survived another week, they sadly had to say good-bye to his brother, Maksim, who was eliminated with partner Kirstie Alley. "This is the first time I've outlasted him," Chmerkovskiy said. And Monaco added, "It's bittersweet. I think it was awful, and probably the worst case scenario we could have had."
But since they're still in the competition, Monaco has to figure out how to perform a "Surfer" flamenco by next week! Don't forget to tune in and vote!
