She may have been at the bottom of the leader board six times, but that clearly hasn’t put off Bristol Palin.
The 20-year-old wowed the Dancing With The Stars judges with her best performances yet in tonight’s semi finals.
Vamping it up in a tight black outfit with a split skirt, she received 27 points – her highest ever score – for her Pasa Doble with partner Mark Ballas.
Head judge Len Goodman said: ‘Bristol the pistol – you’ve fired a few blanks but tonight it’s all guns blazing.’
While fellow judge Carrie Ann Inaba said: ‘You’re on fire. This is what we’ve been asking for all season long and you come out and you nail it.’
The youngster, who has defied critics by winning viewers votes, said she believed the public liked her because ‘I’m real.’
