The theme for this week’s “Dancing With the Stars” is “defining moments.” “Bachelor” Sean Lowe says his best year has, by far, been 2012 — “The experience of being ‘The Bachelor’ is one thing, but that pales in comparison to finding Catherine.” Awww.

Their dance is a Viennese waltz, which he says “perfectly encapsulates everything [he’s] gone through this year.” He also wants to incorporate Catherine into the dance, which pro Peta Murgatroyd is totally on board with. He adds that he hopes Catherine sees how much he loves her through this dance.

As a dance, this is Lowe’s best week so far. He looks much more fluid and less stiff than he’s been so far. He still has some work to do, but you can see him making strides every week. His solo is actually very nice and he ends the dance with a tender kiss for Catherine. Gorgeous.

“He was steaming and I’m beaming … that was a pretty good effort at a difficult dance,” says Len. “That was so sweet. He had the wide-eyed innocence of a child … very caring and tender,” adds Bruno. Carrie Ann got on him about his lifts and his score from her reflected that. He got 7s from the men but a 6 from Carrie Ann for a 20.

What did you think, “DWTS” fans?
