Dancing with the Stars Double Elimination: Who Went Home?

Originally posted 03/24/2014 10:25PM

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars kicked off with a selection of surprises.

Not only did contestants learn right at the beginning that there was a double elimination to take place during the show, but the leader board's lowest scorer Billy Dee Williams – whose face expressed fear of being sent home – was saved almost immediately, and went on to dance a 15-point tango with Emma Slater that judge Len Goodman said "didn't have enough attack."

Before getting to the unfortunate two who were forced to bid adieu, here's a recap of how the night went overall:

With Dancing with the Stars contestants in the final stretch of season 17, Monday night saw another couple sent home.

Just before a newly crowned champion will be named on Tuesday, Jack Osbourne, Bill Engvall, Amber Riley and Corbin Bleu battled it out for a shot at winning the coveted mirror ball trophy.

At the end of Monday's episode, Engvall and partner Emma Slater ended up with the lowest score – and were sent packing.

Bill Engvall feels hopeful that he just may beat out the competition on Dancing with the Stars, and his confidence comes from his strong partnership with Emma Slater.

"I feel like I could win this thing," Engvall tells PEOPLE as the duo head to the finals. "Not alone though!"

"I have such great fans and a wonderful partner, that I just think the stars are aligning. If they don't, I'm fine with that, but I can imagine [winning] now."

Who Went Home on the Dancing with the Stars Semi-Final?

It was another exciting night in the ballroom on Monday's Dancing with the Stars.

There was laughter, tears and even an unexpected smooch during the show's semi-finals, which featured former cast member Maksim Chmerkovskiy as a guest judge.

As usual, Bill Engvall and partner Emma Slater ended up with the lowest overall score for their two routines – a cha cha and an Argentine tango both set to LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It." Their goofy cha cha that got them 28 points out of 40 was poorly received by judges, but they left them impressed with a serious 32-point Argentine tango that Chmerkovskiy raved was "exactly what an Argentine tango is supposed to be like."

Was the fan favorite able to make it through another week and land a spot in next week's finals?

Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The longtime competitor is blogging for PEOPLE.com about competing with former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu in season 17.

We have two dances this week, and they are really exciting. We almost wish the songs were longer. It's really cool to find elements that connect the two dances – not just story lines, but within the choreography, the steps, the props, everything. Our second dance is a prequel to the first. It's very exciting. They are dark and mysterious and dangerous.

Corbin and I were talking the other day about the shocking eliminations this season. Even after the first week, I think people had a certain idea of who they thought would be in the final four. Many of the couples who people thought may go all the way have already been eliminated. It's a very unpredictable season.
