In week 4 of “Dancing with the Stars,” contestants were asked to choose dances and songs that reflected the best year of their lives.
Andy Dick, who found himself in the bottom two last week, dedicated an emotional Viennese waltz to his 15-year-old daughter.
“This has been the best year, because of sobriety,” said Andy. “My daughter Meg is the apple of my eye. We have a super special relationship… my troubles become their troubles. I've put them through hell.” Watch his performance with partner Shama Burgess!
The judges were moved. Bruno Tonioli told Andy, “Simple, effective and straight from the heart. It had a wonderful, fragile quality,” while Carrie Ann Inaba simply broke down in tears, “Come here,” she told Andy, before giving him a hug. “It was so beautiful, like the simplest poem. What you said with those few moments was so beautiful.”
Len Goodman concluded, “You came on to this show a man. Whatever happens, you'll go out of it a hero.”
Champion gymnast Aly Raisman, however, had the top scores of the evening. She proclaimed 2012 as her best year, the year she went to the Olympics with the US team. Watch her and partner Mark Ballas’ freestyle dance!
Tune in to “DWTS” on Tuesday to see who makes the cut!
