Cheryl Burke: Terrell and I ‘Had been Ready’ for ‘DWTS’ Elimination No ratings yet.


Dancing With the Stars professional Cheryl Burke is running a blog solely with Us Weekly about her quest to take house the season 25 mirrorball trophy with accomplice Terrell Owens! Test again every week for her newest replace on the competitors.

I had a sense we have been going to be eradicated however I’m glad we went out on a excessive be aware. I believed Terrell did an incredible job with the Charleston and the trio rumba. Len mentioned that Terrell was essentially the most improved celeb of the season. That remark made us really feel like we already gained.

I informed Terrell after our trio that I had a nasty feeling about being eradicated, and he form of had that feeling as effectively, so we have been ready for it.

Terrell nailed each of the dances but it surely’s nonetheless bittersweet; we felt like we had at the least one other week in us, however it’s what it’s. I believe the Charleston was one in every of his finest dances contemplating how briskly it was, and studying the trio rumba was nerve-racking all through the week due to the peak distinction. Kelly is actually pocket-sized in comparison with Terrell.

Contemplating it was the primary trio rumba in 25 seasons, I believed we did an excellent job and it was good to have the ability to dance with my finest good friend. Terrell joked that he would ask Kelly on a date if we acquired all 10s, however I extremely doubt that’s going to occur! That was just a bit joke on the manufacturing facet, however all of us had a lot enjoyable collectively.

Terrell has been an incredible accomplice and improved a lot this season. I couldn’t ask for something extra. We had a bumpy begin at first, and have been on the underside of the leaderboard, however he put within the work and it confirmed. I by no means thought we might make it so far as we did.

Terrell had a wall up at first and I don’t suppose he realized his potential immediately. Because the present went on, he began seeing his aggressive facet and have become extra weak.

For me, it’s extra than simply being one of the best dancer; it’s about altering individuals’s perceptions of any person like Terrell. I believe he was in a position to present individuals a special facet to him that the world hadn’t seen earlier than. I believe individuals now see a special facet to him, and for me, that’s already profitable. For Most Memorable evening, he was actually in a position to open up and let his guard down. I believe on the soccer area, you simply see all his antics, however actually you don’t know the true Terrell. That’s the fantastic thing about Dancing With the Stars.

Terrell jogs my memory plenty of the athletes I’ve labored with earlier than, however he additionally jogs my memory of Jack Osbourne or Rob Kardashian. Individuals didn’t count on quite a bit from them and anticipated them to be a sure means, and none of them had prior dance expertise. I really like having companions like that, the place I can change individuals’s perceptions of them. Individuals assumed Terrell had a horrible perspective, and wasn’t going to alter his methods, however he simply began changing into extra open to me and to the present, and I believe that actually impressed the judges. He was in a position to let his guard down and present America the true facet of him. As quickly as he was in a position to play sure characters round Week three and four, he simply saved getting higher and higher, and the viewers may see that too.

Semifinals are this week and we’re coming all the way down to the top. I believe the highest three will likely be Jordan, Lindsay and Frankie. In the case of Drew and Victoria, I believe Drew’s fan base is large, so I don’t know who’s going to be the highest 4, however I believe it’s going to be between them. Everybody left is so good and I believe the winner will likely be decided by whoever has one of the best freestyle.

Sadly, I’m sick now, so I gained’t be dancing within the present on Monday. We miss the present and rehearsals already, however Terrell and I nonetheless discuss every single day. We’re each staying actually busy with different tasks.

I’m going to see him once more in just a few days as a result of we begin rehearsals for the finale. Terrell was an incredible accomplice and I positively will be in contact with him. We’ve developed an excellent relationship and friendship and I’ll at all times be there for him and vice versa.

Dancing With the Stars airs on ABC Mondays at eight p.m. ET.
