After last week's elimination, I was thinking a lot about the pressure of being in the semi-finals and the challenges of only having four days to prepare Rob for three dances.

Rob handles pressure really well. He's very good at keeping the mood light in and out of rehearsals, and that actually helps me focus and not get too stressed out.

We've worked hard and Rob has really improved each week, which is what the show is about. Everyone works so hard on this show, and if you've made it this far you deserve to be there.

Rob has surprised a lot of people that counted him out week one. He has been learning and growing as a dancer each and every week, and I think the audience really responds to that.

This week, we're doing the Argentine tango, samba and cha cha. Expect Rob to be better than you've ever seen him!

As far as winning goes, this show is so hard to predict that you really never know. It all comes down to the freestyle. If you're lucky enough to make it into the finale than you better have a freestyle that really engages the audience.
