Jessica waltzes to another week

JESSICA Watson is safe to dance another day on Dancing With The Stars.

The young sailor and her fellow six celebrities avoided elimination last night after Shannon Noll had to leave to competition to have emergency back surgery.

Watson got the same score of 21 that she got last week.

Judges Todd McKenney and Helen Richey were both impressed by Watson's graceful waltz.

"I have never ever seen anybody start looking as terrible as you did and do a performance like that," McKenney said.

"You are amazing."

But judge Josh Horner wanted more from the Buderim teen.

"I need more from you," Horner said. 

"It was a pretty, safe routine by Jessica Watson."
