Next up are Terra Jolé and Sasha Farber, dancing the rumba to “Scars to Your Beautiful” by Alessia Cara.
Bruno Tonioli praises her movements and fluidity, calling them “flawless.” Carrie Ann Inaba says she “takes her breath away,” adding that every move was perfect. Julianne Hough says Jolé proved her wrong, originally thinking it would be a difficult dance for her. She praises her for branching out and challenging herself in every dance. They score a perfect 30.
Watch Terra Jolé and Sasha Farber’s Rumba for Semifinals
The semifinals have arrived! Couples will perform a solo routine for the first part of the competition in a dance style that they have yet to do, while the second half will bring an extra dancer into the mix. Couples will take on the Trio Dance for the second half of semifinals, with the five remaining couples adding a troupe member to their second dance for the evening. One couple will be sent home tonight and four couples will head into the finale next week. The Mirrorball trophy winner will be announced in the season 23 finale next Tuesday.
