There is only room for four couples in the semi-finals. With six couples left, two will be sent home this week. But that doesn’t happen at the beginning of the show. Settle in I sum up this hour-long recap show in a few paragraphs.

First up: a look at the leaderboard.

The judges wanted an encore performance of Donald, Peta & Karina’s jive. I wonder if those audience shots were all live. There were some people who weren’t exactly smiling and barely clapping. Not the proper reaction for that dance!

The first couples to learn their fates take the stage. Donald & Peta are safe. Katherine & Mark are in jeopardy. WHAT?!?

It’s the first time filler! Kenny Mayne, Jerry Rice and Len are assembled for “Dance Center.” Some of their observations:

Chris Brown performed “Turn up the Music.”

The next two couples learn their fates. Roshon & Chelsie were sent home. William & Cheryl are in the semi-finals!

It’s more “Dance Center.” More observations:

Next up: a fun tribute to the late Dick Clark with some of the original dancers from “American Bandstand.”

Another performance, this time Dmitry & Anya perform a number from the Las Vegas DWTS show.

Back to the eliminations. Maria & Derek are safe. Melissa & Maks are in jeopardy.

After one more commercial break, it’s time to find out the second couple going home and the fourth couple headed to the semi-finals. Melissa & Maks are going home – ON HER BIRTHDAY! Katherine & Mark are in the semi-finals!

Next week, the remaining four couples will take on two dances in a fight for the finals. These four are some of the most solid dancers the show has had at the end of a season. I can’t wait to see them dance!
