Dancing with the Stars 7: Brooke Burke's Five Best Dances
In the next few days before the Dancing with the Stars season finale, I'll be comparing and contrasting the strengths and weaknesses that the three remaining stars and their professional dance partners bring to the table. Along with discussing the merits of each celebrity and why he or she deserves a spot in the finals, let's also take a step down memory lane and remember all the performances that have led to this point.

Brooke, Brooke, Brooke. If this competition were purely based on technique and skill, then Brooke should definitely win, hands down, no complaints from me. 

But, as we all know, the Dancing with the Stars results are determined half by judges and half by us viewers at home. While we've had a pretty good education in ballroom dance after watching seven seasons of the show on TV, most of us are not trained dancers who can correctly scrutinize the different steps and styles that the dancers perform. That said, however, I feel confident saying that we all have a really good idea of what looks good and what looks exciting versus what is boring or sloppy. That's why I don't think you need to be a trained professional in any given field to be able to review and critique it.

So let's use the critical eyes that we have honed from many hours of watching Dancing with the Stars and other dance shows, and let's take a trip through Brooke's five best dances of the season.

#5. Viennese waltz,Week 3

Brooke and Derek make such a handsome pair. They are really good at creating smoldering chemistry between each other on the dance floor. This Viennese waltz is gorgeous and displays Brooke's impressive strength, control and flexibility. It is smooth and elegant, utterly romantic and lyrical. It was everything you could ask for in a waltz.
