Dancing with Drew: Week two's quickstep

By Meaghan Wray

Drew Scott is in it to win it. After receiving some surprisingly low marks from the judges in his debut on Dancing with the Stars, the Canadian star returned to the dance floor in week two to prove he has what it takes to go all the way. What made Drew and partner Emma Slater's quickstep even more impressive was the revelation that the 39-year-old danced through an injury he suffered in practice.

Determined not to let a pulled hamstring take him out of the competition, Drew powered through and performed a delightful routine that garnered him 20 points from the judges. And while British judge Len Goodman still had issues with Drew's technique – calling his moves “too loose and too gangly” – the dance expert applauded his enthusiasm. Both Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli loved his routine, adding that they thought he brought major star quality and Hollywood style to the quickstep. The judges’ scores? 6, 7, 7, respectively.

Now it's in the hands of America ... and Canada! For the first time in the show's history, viewers north of the border can vote for their favourite dance pair. Drew has even set up a website to make it super easy for fans to vote: #TeamHotProperty. Tune in tonight (Sept 26) at 9 p.m. EST to see if the Property Brother's moves were enough to keep him in the competition!
