Mark Ballas

Unstoppable all season on Dancing with the Stars, British opera singer Katherine Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas hadn't flubbed a single dance – until the very end of their salsa on Monday night's semi-finals.

With a total of 56 points out of 60 for the night after their two performances, Jenkins was left with a mild back injury and in last place on the leaderboard. But did the ballroom blunder keep her from making it to the show's finale? Or did voters save the singer and send another frontrunner home? Read on to find out ...

In what some may consider an upset, Jenkins and Ballas advanced to the finals, along with William Levy and Cheryl Burke and Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd.

That means Maria Menounos and Derek Hough – who earned a perfect score this week – were sent home in yet another shocking elimination.

"I learned so many things," Menounos said of her time on the show. "I learned how strong I was. I learned to persevere. We didn't know our dances yesterday until we got on the floor."

"I love, love, love dancing with this person," her partner said. "Not just dancing with her, but just her as a person."

And Menounos gave him credit for her longevity on the show, saying, "I wouldn't have made it this far without his amazing talents and choreography."
