Owens is definitely paired with the right partner to make it to the show's finals; Cheryl Burke won season two of DWTS with Emmit Smith, and in season 10, she placed fourth with Chad Ochocinco.
"I think I bring something different with her and my rehearsal," he said of the pressure of living up to Burke's other NFL partners. "She always says, 'Smile more,' but it doesn't really come out until I have to perform."
"I'm a really a stickler for really just kind of just learning the steps, understanding and just getting what she's asking me to do, if I can do it. And then just when we perform," he said. "A night like tonight, this is where the hard work pays off. Nobody sees the gritty, the grimy, the grind that we go through throughout the course of the week."
