Mario Lopez and Emmitt Smith Wednesday made it into the final round of ABC's U.S. sensation, "Dancing with the Stars."
"It's been a wonderful ride really," Lawrence said. "We were a dark horse from day one and I am honored to have made it this far."
"Dancing" has been among the biggest hits of the season, with Tuesday night's broadcast capturing a 22.5 million viewers for the hourlong competition that began at 8:30 p.m. EST.
In next week's final round, Lopez, with partner Karina Smirnoff, and Smith, with partner Cheryl Burke, get to perform their favorite three dances.
Judge Bruno Tonioli has described Smith, an NFL MVP, as a "great American wonder."
