It’s the semi-finals on Dancing With The Stars and boy is there a lot going on!
There’s four dancers left as Tamar unfortunately was forced to pull out of the competition after finding out that she had blood clots in both her lungs. I wish her all the best and hope she recovers soon.
As for the four remaining couples, they had their regular dances to do, as well as a dance-off to add some points to their scores AND a trio dance to do tonight. So they had a lot of dances to learn.
Here are the scores for the couples dances:
Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough
Song: “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile” – Sia
Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold
Song: “America the Beautiful” – Ray Chew
Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson
Song: “Drag You Down” – One Direction
Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess
Song: “Scars” – Alessa feat. Ryan Tedder
Next up came the dance-off in which two couples competed against each other for an additional three points.
Scores for the Dance-Off:
Carlos & Witney .vs. Alek & Lindsay
Song: “Fun” – Pitbull feat. Chris Brown
Judges Votes: Alek & Lindsay (Carrie Ann), Carlos & Witney (Julianne), Carlos & Witney (Bruno)
Winner: Carlos & Witney (+3 Points for a total of 31)
Bindi & Derek .vs. Nick & Sharna

Judges Votes: Bindi & Derek (Carrie Ann), Bindi & Derek (Julianne), Bindi & Derek (Bruno)

Two dances down, but they aren’t done yet! Each of the couples had to choose another pro to dance with for the trios dances and boy was this an adventure!
Scores For Trios Dances:
Bindi, Derek, & Mark Ballas
Song: “Resolve” – Nathan Lanier
Alek, Lindsay, & Emma Slater

Song: “Ex’s & Oh’s” – Elle King
Carlos, Witney, & Karina Smirnoff

After those three dances the scores for the couples are as follows:
Bindi & Derek: 60
Alek & Lindsay: 57
Carlos & Witney: 60
Nick & Sharna: 54
Unfortunately, this is the semi-finals and there needs (usually) to be an elimination.
There were two couples in jeopardy this week: Nick & Sharna and Bindi & Derek (are you kidding me?!).
However, because Tamar & Val were forced to drop out of the competition both couples were safe and all four moved forward to the finals.
What did you think of the semi-finals?
Who are you rooting for next week?
