Stay tuned for our live recap of the show tonight at 8PM EST as it airs. Until then, tell us who you think will be eliminated tonight!
The show kicks off tonight with the leaderboard scores. Who’s going to get the boot? It’s anyone’s game. Len Goodman said that the judges wanted to see Apolo and Karina’s Viennese Waltz once again. It was beautiful once more.
Now to get to some results! Up first to learn their fates are Kelly and Val and Emmitt and Cheryl. Emmitt and Cheryl have just learned that they are safe! Kelly and Val brought up the bottom of the leaderboard and have learned that they are safe!
Jason Mraz is taking the stage to perform his latest hit single “I Won’t Give Up”. We hate it when the song doesn’t sound as good live as it does in the studio.
Shawn and Derek have just learned that they’re safe. Gilles and Peta have just found that they are safe, as well. Kirstie and Maks are also safe!
Now they are choosing for next week’s fusion dances: Kirstie and Maks will be choosing for Melissa and Tony and they have chosen Tango/Cha Cha. Next up, Kelly and Val have chosen Argentine Tango/Samba for Gilles and Peta. Next up, Emmitt and Cheryl have chosen Tango/Foxtrot for Sabrina and Louis. Apolo and Karina have chosen Quickstep/Samba for Kirstie and Maks. Melissa and Tony have chosen Tango/Paso Doble for Shawn and Mark. Next up Shawn and Derek have chosen Rumba/Samba for Emmitt and Cheryl. Sabrina and Louis have chosen Cha Cha/Foxtrot for Kelly and Val. Lastly, Gilles and Peta have chosen Cha Cha/Paso Doble for Apolo and Karina.
Taking the stage is Taylor Swift, singing “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”. This definitely sounds a lot better on record than live. Now, we are learning out of the remaining contestants who is safe to dance again next week. Melissa and Tony are coming back!
Out of Sabrina and Louis and Apolo and Karina, the couple that is being eliminated tonight is: Sabrina and Louis! Are you surprised by the results?
