Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater gave another solid performance on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They danced a rumba to James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go” during the judge’s challenge round. Watch the video below of their routine during the semifinals.

Last week, Jennings received a near perfect score for his trio routine and a solid 36 out of 40 for his jive to the Blues Brothers’ “Shake A Tail Feather.” Of his performance during the quarterfinals, Bruno Tonioli remarked, “You have such charisma.” Carrie Ann Inaba similarly called him “a true entertainer.” And Julianne Hough felt his dance was “so fun.” Len Goodman, however, criticized the professional football player and warned him, “You need to work on you footwork.” While generally among the top competitors, Jennings was nearly eliminated last Monday.

This week, Tonioli chose a rumba for Jennings to perform. He told the football player that he’ll have to “clean up” his hands and feet for the dance. So, did it work?

About his routine, Goodman remarked, “You had beautiful fluidity throughout your arms… You have tremendous dance talent.” Hough felt it was “well done.” Inaba liked how it was “more refined.” And Tonioli offered that “exceeded all expectations.” For his rumba on the season 24 semifinals of “Dancing With The Stars,” Jennings scored a total of 38 out of 40 points.
