Reality TV star Rob Kardashian turned out to be the biggest surprise on "Dancing with the Stars" in the semi-finals round. Rob is known for little more than being the younger brother of reality star Kim Kardashian. Even on the reality show, Rob is generally shown just tagging along with his sisters on various adventures.
The semi-finals round of "Dancing with the Stars" was Rob Kardashian's night to shine. There is no doubt that he literally stole the show from the moment he came out and danced his first number with his partner Cheryl Burke. This was the night that he ascended from the shadows of his older sisters and stood on his own. His hard work and great attitude paid off in huge ways during the semi-finals round.
He shook it to the Samba
It turns out that there is more than one member of the Kardashian family famous for their rather ample rear ends. The moment that Cheryl and Rob came out to dance the Samba and Rob started shaking his famous bottom, the audience began roaring with approval. Rob beamed with enthusiasm as he hopped about shaking his rear in perfect rhythm with his lovely partner. As the dance ended, the audience gave Rob and Cheryl a standing ovation with cheers that flooded out the judges as they spoke. It was clear who the crowd favorite was this evening.
Rob showed possible acting ability
As Cheryl and Rob came out for their second dance, it was clear that Rob took the role he was playing very seriously. He came out looking like an old time Italian mobster, wearing dark black with a shiny purple tie. His moves were smooth and graceful. He wore a gleaming white smile as he swirled Cheryl across the dance floor. Rob was in control from start to finish during this dance, and once again the audience showed its appreciation by giving the couple a standing ovation.
Rob and Cheryl won the relay
The four couples that remain on the show during the semi-finals round had to get out on the floor and do a relay dance. All four couples would dance small bits to the same song. Rob came out tall and proud and was able to dance a true lead with Cheryl. He had all of the right moves and he never missed a beat. While the other three couples all did a fine job on the dance, it was obvious that Rob had once again stolen the show. The judges gave a score that matched up perfectly with the audience reactions and Rob came out with the highest score for the dance.
It seems that Rob Kardashian is literally growing up before our eyes on "Dancing with the Stars" this season. His speech and posture have improved dramatically since he started on the show. He is making a name for himself with hard work and a refreshing enthusiasm for learning. Rob has talent that seemed to be hiding until he got paired up with Cheryl Burke. She has found a way to help Rob shine as a man and drop the childish behavior of a young boy.
"Dancing with the Stars" may turn out to be the second best thing that has ever happened to Rob Kardashian. He has made the most of the chance he has been given to show the world that he has real talent and he can stand on his own. His chemistry with Cheryl Burke is quite obvious. Watching the two of them evolve as a couple has been one of the most pleasant parts of the show this year.
It may be that the best thing that ever happened to Rob Kardashian was his getting Cheryl Burke as a perfect partner. Hopefully Rob will take all that he has learned during this season on "Dancing with the Stars" and use it to go on and do great things. From the roar of the crowd one thing is clear: Rob has managed to gain quite a few fans of his own.
