On the Dancing With the Stars semifinals (Season 18, Week 9), Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas tackled the Jazz as their second dance.

Candace looked great in a sparkling leotard and short black wig. Very Chicago. Her dancing was strong as well. There were a few moments where her face lost character, but in general she was intense, and it was the kind of Jazz that asked for intensity.

Len said it was crisp, clean, tight, together. He thought it was wonderful, and unexpected. Kenny Ortega said she'd done it again. It reminded him of the great ladies of Broadway. Bruno said he's never seen that side of her, "nasty but tasty." He wants her to explore the dark side more. "I like the light, I like the light!" she replied. Carrie Ann was impressed by how pristine that number was. She would have liked a hair more attitude in some moves, but it was really good.

Score: 38/40.
