    Another week on "Dancing With the Stars" has gone by like the wind.

    It's the most amazing season on so many levels: the talent, production, surprise elements, and the friendships that we're building are bigger and better than ever.

    Each week, it's such fun to be able to use so many more props and light effects. It really does add more entertainment value to the show. I feel so blessed to be part of this all-star cast and to still be in the competition with my partner Sabrina Bryan.

    Last weekwas scary! Being in jeopardy of elimination or one of the couples at the bottom of the leader board is so nerve-wracking. My partner, Sabrina Bryan, and I were literally having a heart attack up there. But we survived last week's elimination and are so looking forward to this week's surprise dance.

    Another week saved. Woo hoo! It was so nice that Sabrina and I were the first couple to be saved from elimination last Tuesday. What a crazy elimination it was. Even though we were so excited to be at the top of the leader board for our Quickstep, we were sad by the duo that got eliminated. None of us expected Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson to be eliminated. Joey is sorely missed at the rehearsal studio. He was always in the best mood and he truly lightened up the atmosphere. Kym was lovely as ever.

    I can't believe how fast this week has gone by. The first three weeks of rehearsal felt like forever, but since the "Dancing With the Stars" premiere, it feels like time is flying.

    Can you believe we are about to start season 15, the first ever "Dancing With the Stars: All-Star" season?

    I still remember the very first season as if it was yesterday. I'm so thankful to be part of such a successful and inspiring show. "Dancing With the Stars" has changed lives, not only of fans, but also of celebrities and pro dancers. It definitely changed mine in many ways.

    The All-Star season is going to be spectacular. With former celebrity winners, runners-up and more returning this season, there will be a competition within the competition, plus lots of laughter, hard work, great performances and I'm sure a few celebrity pranks in between.

  • Louis Van Amstel's 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 14 Finale Dish: Who Will Win?

    "Dancing With the Stars" pro Louis van Amstel blogs on season 14 of "DWTS." The three-time world dance champion and creator of LaBlast fitness-based dance DVD workouts starred on seven seasons of the hit ABC show and weighs in on the dances, the judges scores and who will be eliminated. You can find him on Twitter @LouisvanAmstel.

    I made a prediction in Week 3 that Katherine, Donald,and William would be my top three. Week after week, they confirmed my first impressions through their sheer hard work and great performances. At times, I thought some were underscored or some overscored, but somehow America kept voting for the right celebs to return. Even though the three finalists are judged on a few dances tonight and tomorrow, it's really the Freestyle that's the most important. A fantastic Freestyle can cinch that win for a couple and a lackluster Freestyle performance can cost a couple that "DWTS" mirrorball trophy.

    This week is the hardest week of the season. Between who's going to be in the final three and the two full solo dances, the pressure is at an all-time high. The dances are also longer, which gives the celebs more material to memorize. Let's see how the couples did!
