Erika Jayne Eliminated From Dancing With The Stars!
"I've just never really felt that disconnected from the audience. I've never really felt this way ever," she shared. "I think I should be performing better than I am. I think I'm capable of that. Maybe I'm just holding back."
There was even one moment during rehearsals where Erika broke down into tears and was consoled by her professional partner, Gleb Savchenko. "I've never felt like this before. I've never, ever, ever questioned myself so deeply before," she told her dance partner. "And I don't understand. It shouldn't be this way."
Erika and Gleb performed one unlearned dance to a song from a Disney film. Erika danced a romantic and passionate Viennese waltz to Sia's cover of "Unforgettable" featured in the movie Finding Dory.
"This is one of my favorite songs, and one of my husband's favorite songs," Erika gushed during rehearsals. "And I remember driving late night listening to this and him singing it to me. A little off-key, but it was still great."
Erika and Gleb's performance was unforgettable, which earned them their highest score of 32/40, getting a four 8's from the judges as well as a standing ovation from the audience. The reality star and singer received raves for showing her vulnerability from the judges, too.
Even Erika's harshest critic, Len Goodman, had nothing but kind words for her. "I've said it many times, you are a lovely dancer, and it just hadn't come out. Tonight it did," he said. "I loved the routine. It had a lovely mix, in hold and out hold, beautiful flowing movement, lovely arms. It was terrific. Well done."
