Last night was so much fun! The day started at 8a on the soundstage where Dancing with the Stars is filmed. Chelsie and I ran through the routine 3 times with the live band. This is so we can get the feel and tempo down. Its really different than dancing to a soundtrack. I was getting so nervous. Actually all of the couples were.
Hair and makeup, and then practice walking down the curving staircase. Then run the routine again in full costume.
This week in preparation I have been icing down joints and taking advantage of massages from Vienna. She has been such a trooper!
Everyone was telling me Live TV is really nerve racking. It appears that almost 25 million people were watching lastnight. Thats insane!
When Chelsie and I went back to stage to prepare for live dance, thats when the nerves really got to me. I will say it again from the Bachelor. My tie, or in this case bowtie felt like a snake wrapped around my throat. Chelsie was a little nervous too.
When I stepped out, it was just me Chelsie and that dance floor. The Waltz was over in a flash!
I felt a bit honored to be heckled by Bruno. Some of the things he said are right on the money.
Next week is the Latin Jive. Its a really quick highenergy dance. So today its back to 6 plus hours in the studio.
Thank you so much for all of the support last night. I read and am still reading through all of the tweets and facebook messages.
