Noah Galloway’s Biggest Fans? His Dancing With the Stars Competition

‘Dancing With the Stars’ recap: Perfectly scored freestyling finale with Rumer, Riker, Noah.

There were a bunch of perfect 40s – for all three finalists’ freestyle routines – some grit (pushing through injuries), a hefty dose of emotion (Noah unleashing his vulnerability) and a truism from Len Goodman to viewers: “Don’t moan if you don’t phone.” You tell ’em, Krusty! News’ Maria Menounos he was “upset.” But then he found support from a surprising source: his fellow finalists. “Everyone—Riker [Lynch], Rumer [Willis], Val [Chmerkovskiy], Allison [Holker]—everyone was saying, ‘Relax, kill the freestyle,'” he said, adding that pros Derek Hough and Mark Ballas also gave him some encouraging words before his second dance, which received a perfect score. “Mark and Derek said, ‘Don’t word about the dance, just give the emotion,’ because they knew it was about,” Noah said. “That’s what I did and I didn’t care what happened and it felt good.

The competitors did two dances each, one a repeat favorite from earlier in the season and the other a much-anticipated freestyle, meant to allow the best showboating they could muster. It felt like I put it all out there.” Though they’re in competition for the coveted mirrorball trophy, Noah’s partner Sharna Burgess was quick to gush about Rumer, Val, Riker and Allison, saying, “We’re telling the truth when we say we’re family.” She contnued, “That support that Noah got from everyone else truly made him get it together for the second dance, so he could focus on what he wanted to portray and the story he wanted to tell. We all genuinely care for each other.” And we suggest having some Kleenex at the ready tonight as Noah and Sharna are set to perform with former contestant Amy Purdy, who was the show’s first double amputee contestant in season 18.

PLEASE SHE HAS WORKED SO HARD. 1 (855) 234-5610 #VALENRUE Following the beautiful dance, co-host Erin Andrews brought the team to the side for an interview. Rumer’s younger sister Tallulah Willis also pointed out her dad’s emotional response on Instagram, writing, “Look at this cutie tearing up from my insanely magical sisters dance. Often cranky Len spontaneously leaped to his feet and called the dance “swashbuckling,” “flamboyant” and “epic.” It’s no secret that Riker’s his favorite, but he could in good conscience give that number a 10.

In fact, everyone did, with Julianne noting that Riker contained his sometimes over-abundant energy, and Bruno Tonioli loving how he brought the eccentricities of the character to life. Score: 40 Rumer wasn’t yet comfortable in the contest or maybe even in her own skin during the first week of “DWTS,” when she and Val did the foxtrot to Hozier’s “Take Me to Church.” So she said she was looking forward to doing it again. Even somebody like me who has said all along Noah — as amazing and inspiring as he is — does not deserve to win a dance competition had to rethink everything. Said Len, “Your journey has been the hardest and the longest, that was amazing.” Added Carrie Ann: “There is nothing to fix about you, this is art, it is meant to inspire us and that is what you do, your movements were incredible.” Perfect 10s.

She positively glowed on that floor. “Pure ballroom bliss,” Bruno said, declaring her dancing royalty, and Carrie Ann dubbed it “poetry in motion.” Len the purist really dug it, of course, and Julianne said it was “flawless.” Score: 40 Not to keep harping on the worst day of his life or anything, but Sharna took Noah back to Christmas 2005. The routine, to the pop bootstrap anthem, “Titanium,” mashed up with Coldplay’s super sentimental “Fix You,” was really more about resilience, and it hit the mark, no doubt, with audience members who have been repeatedly voting for Noah. Rumer was graded on a curve way too many times, for instance, and both Nastia Liukin and Willow Shields went home despite stellar scores from the judges. Fox’s mainstay, “So You Think You Can Dance,” goes to great pains every season to reinforce that the winner is “America’s favorite dancer,” not “America’s best dancer.” There’s a difference. “DWTS,” for its part, has never promised to crown the best celebrity hoofer, and most viewers realize that it’s as much a popularity contest as anything. It’s probably too close to call, but I’m going to flip a coin and say Rumer will run off with the mirror ball, with Val joining big brother Maks in the winners’ circle.

Music industry heavyweight Linda Perry produced Rumer’s breathy, slow-motion version of “Toxic,” a Britney Spears hit single from 2003, and the couple crushed a blend of contemporary and Argentine tango. The contestants will fuse together two contrasting dance styles they’ve previously performed this season and come up with some hybrid – Len’s (least) favorite! – in less than a day.
