Allison Holker and Derek Hough on DWTS. Wow!

My favorite "So you think you can dance" contestant, Allison Holker, makes a very special appearance on Dancing with the Stars and pairs up with Derek Hough in one of the results shows. Derek is the most successful pro on DWTS (he's the first to notch three wins) and when he pairs up with Allison to do a fusion of Argentine Tango, Flamenco, and Paso Doble, the result is jaw-dropping and mind-blowing. Check it out!

That standing ovation from the audience and all three judges (and the looks of amazement from all of them) show you just how brilliant this routine was. Not just technically but also from a performance standpoint. The body language, expression, as well as the inhalations and exhalations that just read passion, make this dance larger than life. What's even more impressive is that Allison is not a ballroom dancer (she's contemporary) but watching this, you'd think she's been dancing ballroom her entire life. I'm not sure how many times I have now watched this on youtube but I still can't get enough of it. Wow, just, wow.
