Things are looking Up for Sadie Robertson. After a strong first week on Dancing With the Stars, followed by a rougher second week and near-elimination, the Duck Dynasty beauty bounced back with a winsome Viennese waltz to the "Married Life" theme song from Disney-Pixar's Up, choreographed by her DWTS pro partner, Mark Ballas.
Veteran judge Carrie Ann Inaba raved that it was her "favorite dance" so far, while Bruno Tonioli gushed that he was "totally and utterly charmed."
This week, the 17-year-old A&E star will be doing a routine about the most memorable year of her life. As Us Weekly exclusively reported earlier on Oct. 6, she's invited her family to participate in her performance.
In the meantime, take a look at Robertson's third exclusive photo blog for Us Weekly, featuring behind-the-scenes pictures of her bonding with Ballas' season 18 DWTS partner, Candace Cameron Bure. And remember to click back next week for another round of snapshots!
