Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas (56/60)
Katherine is from a small town called Neath, South Wales. She always loved to sing because it made her happy. She was accepted to the prestigious Royal Academy of Music. It’s slightly jarring to be reminded that this sweet little woman is an amazing opera singer. She was engaged to a British TV personality named Geffen Jones and they broke up in December. The show has helped her get her mojo back.
Quickstep–She starts out in a cage and the swing music (“Dirty Boogie”) is fun. Maybe it’s because Katherine is always so strong, but I was not excited by it. Bruno gushed, then Carrie Ann faked her out by saying she didn’t bring her A game, she brought her A+ game, bringing Katherine to tears. Len points out some foot fault that Mark takes the blame for.
