Cheryl Burke’s travel must-have? A blankie!

Dancing has always been an escape for Cheryl Burke. “It’s been something that's always been there for me,” the 28-year-old says. “It’s been amazing to turn to something that you know that you can do and you feel confident doing.” 

The “Dancing With the Stars” professional found her calling at an early age. “My mom got me into ballet, soccer, volleyball, basketball, you name it. But dance class is the only class I never complained about,” she recalls. Burke started taking ballet at age 4, but the glitz and glamour of the ballroom caused her to switch genres seven years later. She started competing all over the world as a teen and never looked back.

Donald Driver's bizarre DWTS victory dance

Green Bay Packers player Donald Driver and his professional dancing partner Peta (heavens to) Murgatroyd are the king and queen of the Dancing with the Stars ballroom!  Driver was so excited when host Tom Bergeron announced his name that he couldn't even stay on his feet!  After jumping up and down, Driver ran across the dance floor and then... he stopped, dropped and rolled!  Maybe he thought he was on fire?

Later, backstage Driver said, "I felt the same way when I won the Vince Lombardi trophy! I just... have a numb feeling and I think it's going to soak in tomorrow that we are Dancing with the Stars champions."

Last week, we had a ballroom gospel choir. This week, we had spangled singing nuns aplenty. Really, what more could you ask for? What is that? You also want some pretty decent dancing, a Ukrainian cat fight and one big mess of a group number? Ask, followers of the Mirrorball, and you shall receive!

'DWTS' recap: J.R. Martinez, "loin shattering sex machine"

'Bangles, spangles and tangles'

It was prom night in the ballroom! Assuming you went to prom in the ‘80s and weren’t gestating in the womb, like Derek. Way to make everyone feel old, bro. Naturally everyone was dressed in their finest ‘80s frillery, no one more than Brooke, who took a break from being a robot to giggle a lot and don a fantastic blue shoulder pad number. If only she could do away with those cue cards! Her persistent adherence to the script is the opposite of Your Host “That will teach me to drink during commercials” Tom, and makes her the host equivalent of one of those automated voices you hear when you call information. The show will go blue sequin Brooke’s way, or no way at all!
