Friday night determined the semifinalists of this season of  Danish dance show Vild med dans where Olympic champion Pernille Blume and her professional dance partner Morten Kjeldgaard secured their spot in the semifinals after performing two dances in the same night.

The competition started off with their pasodoble which placed them in a three-way tie for 1st place with 47 points. Judges called Blume’s performance “delicate” “beautiful,” “delicious,” and “formidable.”
