We’re almost at the end of the competition! Next week is the semi-finals! What? How did that happen?!
Showstoppers night was full of amazing dances and some incredibly heartbreaking moments. Here are the scores for last night:
Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold
Song: “Back it Up” – Prince Royce feat. Jennifer Lopez & Pitbull
Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas
Song: “Make it Rain” – Ed Sheeran
Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson
Dance: Argentine Tango
Song: “What Do You Mean” – Justin Bieber
Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough
Dance: Viennese Waltz
Song: “Roses and Violets” – Alexander Jean
Tamar Braxton & Val Chmerkovkiy
Song: “Wicked Game” – James Vincent McMorrow
*Lowest Score of the Night*
*It should be noted that Tamar and Val’s score is actually based on a video of their dress rehearsal as Tamar wasn’t there for the actual dance. She was taken to the hospital during dress rehearsal to be treated for pneumonia. She returned later for the Showstopper number and if she hadn’t they would have been eliminated for the same reason as Kim & Tony.*
Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess
Song: “A Cool Cat in Town” – Tape Five
But it wasn’t just the one dance the couples had to do.
They also had their Showstopper numbers to perform in which two of the couples teamed up to recreate a number from a well known show or musical.
Not only that, but the celebs in each team had to dance with each other for thirty seconds without their pro dance partners.
Here are those scores:
Alek & Lindsay and Carlos & Witney
Dance: Paso Doble
Song: “We Will Rock You” – Queen
Show: We Will Rock You
*Lowest Showstopper Score*
Alexa & Mark and Bindi & Derek
Song: “All That Jazz” & “Hot Honey Rag” – Kander and Ebb
Nick & Sharna and Tamar & Val
Song: “Hey Jude” – The Beatles
Show: Love by Cirque du Soleil
This was such an emotional show. Alexa and Mark’s dance had me tears, it was so beautiful and Alexa sharing her story was absolutely magnificent.
Many of the couples were feeling the pressure, Alek and Lindsay were trying to prove that they deserved to go the semi-finals while Bindi and Derek were trying to deal with all the extra pressure added from being on top of the leader board so often.
Next week is the semi-finals which means a couple had to leave tonight. After a lot of waitoing to see who would be called safe it came down to two couples: Carlos & Witney and Alexa & Mark.
It was husband against wife and it was heartbreaking. In the end, Alexa & Mark were eliminated and Carlos’s reaction broke my heart. Alexa said she was glad to go out on such a great night, but that didn’t make it any easier for her husband.
What did you think of this elimination? Who do you think will be making it to the finals?
