The duo danced the Charleston for a perfect 30 points, a Freestyle for another 30, and got the second-highest score (4) for the Samba Relay. Amber‘s Glee co-star Chris Colfer cheered her on from the audience!
“This show has definitely made me more confident,” Amber wrote on her Parade blog. “I have done something every single week that I had never done before and I’ve pushed past anxieties and fears and insecurities. Every time I watch back, I’m amazed at what I did. It’s by no means perfect and by no means do I mirror a professional dancer, but I’m proud of what I did. Putting yourself in an uncomfortable position and allowing yourself to strive for greatness makes you a better person, and I feel like I am a better person because of this show.”
