Driver keeps stride with Waltz

Posted by packers.com on April 30, 2012 – 8:33 pm

WR Donald Driver and his dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd scored 27 points out of 30 for the fourth consecutive week on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Likely unsurprising to Packers fans, Donald easily kept rhythm with his swift and agile footwork during the Viennese Waltz and received a post-dance standing ovation from the full audience in the ABC ballroom.

Costumed like true royalty, the pair received praise from the judges and modest critique along with 9 points from each.

Len Goodman who has judged Driver both hot and cold in previous weeks told the couple they did a great job and that their dance was well done.

“I thought it was terrific,” said Judge Len Goodman.

This 7th week of competition provided Driver with the probable security that he will see Week 8. But will it be enough for this royal duo?

Eliminations continue on “Dancing with the Stars.” Viewers are encouraged to vote via phone and text message for Donald only on the night he performs; online voting ends at 10 a.m. CT the following day. Log on to abc.com to vote.

    What a treasure to watch Doanld and Peta. What a classy face of the Packers he is. Just like at home game, the crowd goes crazy when he is announced. Not just a talented athlete and performer, he is a humble, devoted, and dedicated man.

    Donald is doing great! It is dissapointing to see that the Packers have not attended the live presentations to show support for Donald.

    A star and gentleman. Donald has shown his true wonderful self on the dance floor as well as he does on the field. He is a great mentor for the new guys coming into “The Pack”. Can’t wait until football season starts.

    Quickie aka double D is a Renaissance man who is showcasing his athleticism for any team to ponder if the GBP decide to say goodby…brilliant marketing move.
