Couple: Romeo & Chelsie Hightower
Romeo is coming for you, Hines Ward! After his elegant Foxtrot last week, the rapper-actor was set to tackle the Waltz. So far, Romeo’s been really fortunate in his dance progression from week to week. He’s able to use what he learned in the previous routine to his advantage.
For the Waltz, he borrowed some of the grace he acquired last week and threw in some airy romance. And with a professional partner like Chelsie, he’s one step closer to a perfect score.
"Chelsie has been busting my chops, but I’mma listen to everything she says because I want to get 10s," Romeo confessed. "We want to show people that we can be great ballroom dancers. We’re taking it seriously."
Romeo, who stole a smooch on the floor, must have been paying extra-close attention! When he hit the floor for his Waltz to Celine Dion’s "My Heart Will Go On," the song made us cringe, but his dance was breathtaking! There was great attention to detail in his steps, which really seemed to come naturally for Romeo.
It wasn’t just his moves. He committed to his character this week. He lived the routine instead of just going through the motions. It was magic…plain and simple. This week he truly lived up to his name, and his efforts earned him the first 10 of the season.
Of course, we wonder what Chelsie said to him about that kiss after they got off camera!
