Dancing With the Stars 2014: Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s Week 9 Viennese Waltz (VIDEO)

On the Dancing With the Stars semifinals (Season 18, Week 9), each of the pairs had to tackle two dances. Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy had the Viennese Waltz second.

They went for another dramatic, emotional dance. Meryl floated across the floor. Wow, can she move. Really, just a gorgeous performer. Her shapes were lovely, the emotion and story of the dance was so clear. We normally don't find Viennese Waltzs all that thrilling, but this one blew us away.

Len loved that she went for it 100 percent. There was no playing it safe. Kenny Ortega said that she blew him away last week, and she did it again this week. Power, grace, synchronization, she has it all. Bruno called them unbelievable. It had a grand, cinematic sweep. Her role playing is out of this world, her dancing magnificent. Carrie Ann said what Meryl does is incredible. She has the grace, but also the power. She is fantastic. "You better not go home!"

Score: 40/40. Perfect night!

Dancing With the Stars airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
