Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is a mom, author, entrepreneur and star of MTV’s Jersey Shore and Snooki & JWoww. She’s blogging for PEOPLE.com as she competes on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars with new pro Sasha Farber.
This week Sasha and I are dancing the fox trot to “Buttercup.”
It’s such a sweet elegant dance, and Sasha did an amazing job with choreography which you guys will see this Monday night on Dancing with the Stars.
This week was so much fun rehearsing because at this point I feel like Sasha and I are old friends. Even though we take this competition seriously and want to do the best we can, we always remember to have fun and enjoy this awesome experience.
It’s getting down to the wire now with couples getting voted off each week and it’s so sad because we all became a family.
This week’s show is throwing in a HUGE twist in the competition – all couples will be dancing to different types of music, kind of like musical chairs but without the chairs.
Whoever wins this part of the competition will get four extra points to their scores! So this week is going to be a crazy show!!!!
Stay tuned and make sure to vote for your favorite couple!!! XOXOXO
