Transcript for Paula Abdul on Judging 'DWTS,' Controversial Rumba Scores
And now, we want to get her expert opinion on all of the ballroom moves in the semifinals. Good morning, paula. I think we can hear you now, paula. Thanks. We lost the sound for a second. Tell us, first, what about shawn and derek last night and that "knight rider" bhangra. I would have loved to have been in the room when they were deciding to put that combination together. I look forward to them. He's some choreographer, isn't he? He is amazing. He is a force to be reckoned with. And she is. He makes the most beautiful routines for shawn. She's having the best time. He tailors them perfectly to his partner. I agree. Kelly and val tied for last place. And they actually danced an water. I thought -- for me, i thought their routine was very inventive and technically very k challenging. Very beautiful. Obviously, they're into each other. It doesn't hurt. I would say, when everything fails, go to the speedos. There was an outcry on twitter about her rumba scores. Do you think they deserve better? I personally feel they did deserve better. I do. Last night, there was also the tribute to michael jackson. His mom was in the audience. Which of those routines wasr favorite? They were beautiful. There were so many. I really loved "dirty diana" with tony and melissa. They've been doing a great job all season long. It's been incredible. This season is so exciting to watch because you don't know who is going to be on top of the leaderboard. And they're all really -- they're raising the bar with the creativity and the inventive. It's awesome. We can't wait for your performance tonight. You put out a little hint. "Forever your girl" music video. Can you tell us more about what to expect? It's very exciting for me to be able to go back and revisit my hit songs and to rerecord them and put together a wonderful medley, in my head, it's the dream medley. It's everything I've wanted to do. And a place like "dancing with the stars," they allow the platform to do amazing things. I'll keep my fingers crossed that everything happens today. It's all interactive. A lot of great fans here, denise in our control room, says you're bringing everybody back to high school. One final question. Double-elimination night tonight. Who do you have your eye on? Who do you think is going to go all the way? I have to tell you, every, single one of them is surprising every week. And I think that in the big way, they raised the bar and hit their own personal best many times. It's very exciting to watch. I have no clue whatsoever. That usually doesn't help that i have no clue. It has been an exciting season. Good luck tonight. Cannot wait to see you perform tonight. And all of you at home can see paula perform and which dancers are heading to the finals
