Karina Smirnoff's Dancing with the Stars Blog: I Think the Judges Got It Wrong Last Week

Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff is blogging about her experience on the reality dance competition's 22nd season exclusively for PEOPLE.com. Follow Smirnoff and her partner Doug Flutie on Twitter!

I'm just going to say it: I think the judges got it wrong last week.

When they were critiquing our dance they said that Doug and I were out of sync, but I watched it back and I really think Doug did a great job.

That routine was not easy and the music was some of the most difficult I've ever been tasked with choreographing a dance to, and I think Doug did a fantastic job.

That said, we ended that critique on a high when they told us we were actually safe! I had confidence that we had done well enough the week before to make it through the elimination, but it was such a weight off our shoulders to know that we will definitely be around for the next two weeks.

It's Switch-Up Week, so no one will be going home tonight, but that doesn't mean it's a week to take things easy.

Jodie Sweetin's Dancing with the Stars Blog: What It's Really Like Working with Val Chmerkovskiy

Last week could definitely have gone better.

I just lost my place and never really found my way back to the dance. I panicked a bit, and that's never good.

Friends told me that they couldn't see the missed steps – and my daughters had a blast at the show because it was Disney Week – but I'm my toughest critic and I was so bummed about my performance.

But Keo could not have been a better partner.

He saw me starting to freak out and he just kept telling me, "You've got this. Let's have a good time. You're doing great."

Jodie Sweetin's Dancing with the Stars Blog: Why Disney Week Rehearsals Have Been the Hardest Yet

Last week was emotional, but I could not have been happier to get out there and share my story.

I thought Keo had crafted a beautifully cathartic experience for me. He chose to end the song on a high note, just like where I am in my life right now.

That said, I was so happy to get the dance over with. It was extremely emotionally demanding and I was giving it my all every time we rehearsed it so I was emotionally exhausted when I got home Monday night.

Karina Smirnoff's Dancing with the Stars Blog: I Told Doug Flutie It's Okay to Cry

I'm so glad it's Disney Week!

Last week I was so glad Doug and I could honor his parents, but it was a very emotional rehearsal process and performance night.

All of that really came to a head when our video package played right before our dance last Monday.

I was worried Doug was going to lose it the moment he watched the package and saw his parents. I wouldn't have been able to keep it together. But I made sure to tell him that it was okay to cry and get emotional because I think that reminded him that he had permission to that. I think that helped him just well up with tears and let that happen rather than trying to hold it in and then exploding with tears.
