Valerie Harper Channels Grace Kelly On DWTS! Watch HERE!

Valerie Harper has proved she's a fighter as she continues to compete on DWTS despite her terminal brain cancer, but it has NOT been easy for her!

In addition to suffering some joint pain in her knees, the veteran actress was struggling to remember the choreography and it certainly showed in her performance.

Valerie and her partner Tristan MacManus went all out on Hollywood night and dressed as Grace Kelly and Freddie Mercury for their cha cha, but unfortunately she missed a few steps here and there.

The judges definitely took notice, but they praised her for her grace and the duo's commitment to the theme! However, they were given one of the low scores of the week with a total of 16.

Luckily, Valerie lives to dance another week, and being the fighter she is, we know she'll come back stronger than ever!

Ch-ch-check out the couple's cha cha (above)!
