What did AJ say about her routines with Kai?

She continued: “There’s a lot of passion, there’s a lot of chemistry, there’s a lot of romance, it’s thrilling!

“And in practice I could not look at Kai without bursting out into laughter. But now hopefully come Saturday night, I’m going to look at him eye to eye, look in love and it’s going to be amazing. But it is awkward!”

She also added that she’s focusing so hard on the steps in practice that she’s not “really focused on being in his personal space”.
