Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas Dance Afro Jazz on Dancing With the Stars 2013 Semifinals

Dancing With the Stars 2013 heads into the semifinals tonight, and for Season 16: Week 9, Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas tackled a brand-new style for both of them: Afro Jazz! They delivered a fun, wacky performance that involved headdresses and big walking sticks. Perfectly in sync and intense, they brought the house down, and definitely impressed the judges. “Everything you guys were in perfect sync — it was just fantastic!” Carrie Ann said. Len agreed, saying, “I loved the musical interpretation, you kept the feeling of the dance,” but noted they were a bit disconnected. Bruno didn’t necessarily feel the same way, saying, “You have exceeded all expectations — you have showed an incredible range in every type of dance.” The duo ultimately scored 29/30!
