Drew Lachey is a member of 98 Degrees, starred on Broadway in Monty Python’s Spamalot and Rent. He is the season 2 winner of Dancing with the Stars and a founder of Lachey Arts Music Theater Camp. Lachey will now be blogging for PEOPLE.com about his return to the ballroom with pro Anna Trebunskaya for the DWTS all-stars season.

This has been an eventful – and stressful – week, to say the least. This past results show proves that it isn t only about how well you dance, but also how many people you have voting for you.

After finding ourselves in the bottom two, and facing elimination, Anna and I have turned things up a notch. We have always worked hard, but there has been a new sense of focus and determination (cue the Rocky music). This is a new week with a new dance, and it is going to be a new outcome hopefully.
