Tonight on ABC is an all new episode of the hit dancing competition “Dancing With The Stars”. Last night on the show, we saw the remaining competitors take on a ballroom dance along with a trio performance with an eliminated pro or Troupe member. In case you’ve missed the show, you can read our fully detailed recap here.
Since there was no elimination on last week’s Fusion dances due to the Presidential Election, the show will be eliminating two of the contestants tonight. Who will they be? It only remains to be seen, so stick with us for our live recap of the show as it airs tonight at 8PM EST.
Until then, check out the official leaderboard scores for the remaining contestants. These are their grand totals from last week and this week, combined.
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough: 93.5
Apolo Ohno and Karina Smirnoff: 91.5
Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 79
Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy: 92.5
Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd: 92
Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke: 92.5
Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani: 99
We’re going to guess that Kirstie and Apolo or Emmitt get the boot tonight. It’s a popularity contest sometimes, isn’t it? Until the show airs, tell us who you’re rooting for to win the All-Stars mirror ball trophy!
The show kicks off with Kylie Minogue promoting her latest album. She’s performing “Locomotion”. It was a great performance! Love us some Kylie!
Up first to learn their fates are Shawn and Derek and Melissa and Tony. Melissa and Tony are going to the semi-finals! As far as Shawn and Derek are concerned, they are also heading to the semi-finals. They’re both safe!
Now, it’s time for the Macy’s Stars of Dance performance. Up next, singing “Let Me Love You” is Ne-Yo.
Apparently it’s between Kelly and Val and Kirstie and Maks as to who will be eliminated first on tonight’s show. We’re not shocked if Kirstie gets the axe, while she does have a huge fan base, she didn’t perform quite as well as Kelly this week or last. As far as who is getting eliminated first, it’s Kirstie and Maks! Kirstie said that to come back to the show was an honor and she thanked the judges for their critiques because they really helped her.
Now, the contestants have to choose dances for next week’s theme. Kelly and Val are choosing the Caveman Hustle for Melissa and Tony. Emmitt and Cheryl are choosing the Night Rider Banhgra for Shawn and Derek. Next up, Apolo and Karina are picking Mad Monk Meringue for Gilles and Peta. Gilles and Peta have chosen Big Topp Jazz for Apolo and Karina. Shawn and Derek have chosen the Espionage Lindy Hop for Emmitt and Cheryl. Kelly and Val are dancing the Surfer Flamenco.
Taking the ballroom floor next are Val Chmerkovskiy and the New York City Ballet’s principal dancers. Next, Gilles, Apolo and Emmitt will learn their fates. Which couple is getting through to the semi-finals? Emmitt and Cheryl! Apolo and Karina and Gilles and Peta are left on the floor.
Who’s getting sent home on week 8 of “Dancing With The Stars”? Gilles and Peta!! Shocking!
