DWTS All-star: Fourth couple eliminated
One couple sent home after performing new dance
SAN ANTONIO - They’ve had four dances, but that’s as far as one of the remaining nine couples will go in this competition. So, straight up, now tell me – who’s going home? See what I did there, Paula Abdul fans? Sadly, the results do not get top billing. The DWTS Troupe and some of the pros kicked off the show with a performance.
Here’s where the couples stand:
- Gilles & Peta – 39.5 points
- Shawn & Derek – 39.5 points
- Kelly & Val – 37.5 points
- Melissa & Tony – 37 points
- Emmitt & Cheryl – 36 points
- Sabrina & Louis – 35.5 points
- Apolo & Karina – 34.5 points
- Bristol & Mark – 32 points
- Kirstie & Maks – 30 points
The first four couples learn their fates. Hold on. There is seriously something going on between Kelly & Val. They’re WAY too smoochy to just be dance partners. OK. I’m back on track. Shawn & Derek are safe. The other three couples have to wait through the commercial break to learn if they’re safe or not. ARGH! After the break, Kelly & Val and Sabrina & Louis learned they’re safe. Bristol & Mark are in jeopardy.
Carson Kressley returned to introduce a lovely time filler. He showed behind the scenes happenings. FF.
The next three couples learn their fates. Gilles & Peta and Emmitt & Cheryl are safe. Apolo & Karina are in jeopardy.
Cheryl performed with some of other dancers to a Tito Puente medley.
It’s time for another round of cuts. Melissa & Tony are safe. Kirstie & Maks are in jeopardy. Kirstie got the giggles after she learned that.
Donnie Osmond (Season Nine DWTS champion) and Susan Boyle performed “This is the Moment.” Huh? This seems like a random pairing. Didn’t Susan once say she had a crush on Donnie? I’m Googling. Yep. Here it is. I'm kind of embarrassed that I actually knew that information.
The two highest scoring couples get to pick couples LIVE for next week’s freestyle team dance. SPOILER: none of the couples want to be picked last. Gilles & Peta chose “Gangnam Style” for their song. Their team includes:
- Kelly & Val
- Kirstie & Maks
- Emmitt & Cheryl
Shawn & Derek chose “Call Me Maybe” for their song. Their team includes:
- Sabrina & Louis
- Melissa & Tony
- Apolo & Karina
Bristol & Mark weren’t chosen. They’ll take the place of the couple sent home – unless they’re sent home, then they won’t dance next week. Obviously.
Final elimination of the night time. Apolo & Karina are safe. Kirstie & Maks are safe. Bristol & Mark are going home.
Next week, the top eight couples will perform to their favorite guilty pleasure song and a second time with that team dance. It will be split over Monday and Tuesday – two one-hour shows. No couples will be eliminated next week.
