The final five couples took to the stage for this week's Dancing with the Stars semifinals, and while each duo had impressive performances, one couple had to be sent home. This week Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd took their final bows on the dance floor after performing two dances to different types of music – one plugged and the other unplugged – for this week's theme.
"I've just showed that old stoners can perform when they need to!" joked Chong during his final send-off.
Here's how the couples fared:

Going with great news – rather than just a great performance – is the best way to start off Dancing with the Stars. To that end, Monday's installment killed it with the bulletin that oldie but goodie Tommy Chong made it for another week!
But Chong getting to stay meant that a (high-scoring) celebrity had to go. So it was a surprise when Lea Thompson – who looked stunning while performing some of her best dances – was named as the next hoofer to leave the ballroom.
"I just feel really great. I feel strong and I'm anxious to get back to my day job on Switched at Birth," Thompson said. "I love this man [Artem Chigvintsev] and he's a new pro and I think he did a great job with me."

It was a Dynamic Duos theme under the mirror ball on Dancing with the Stars Monday but the night's Tarzan – better known as Michael Waltrip – couldn’t swing enough votes to keep him and his Jane inside the fringe jungle.
The racecar driver became the latest celebrity to leave the ABC show.
"It was a chance to do something that was more emotional than it was physical, to get to experience the wonderful cast, to get to know Emma's heart and who she is as a person," Waltrip told host Tom Bergeron. "I'm happy I got to be here and sad I have to go."
"I'm so emotional," added his pro Emma Slater. "He's made me a better person. You meet these people and he has a big heart. I'll be a better person for the rest of my life."

How's this for scary: Judge Len Goodman started the night in a casket!
It was an appropriate opening because the returning judge had to help sound the death knell for Antonio Sabato Jr.
No matter how many times the soap star went shirtless under the mirror ball this season, he and partner Cheryl Burke just couldn't keep the judges, or viewers, happy.
"I danced with one of the best in the world," Sabato Jr. said. "It's all about the fans and that's why I am here."

Get ready to par-TAY!
Monday night's Dancing with the Stars showcased party anthems, with guest judge Redfoo from LMFAO helping to weed out the ho-hum from the fun.
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd entered as the charmed couple after getting a perfect score on Disney week, while Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas were just holding on and Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke hoped that audience scores would prop them up for another week.
Except, that didn't happen.

With March Madness whittling down to its Final Four (Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky and Wisconsin, for those just tuning in now), sports fans have moved from cheering on the success of their own brackets to rooting for their favorites of the quartet of teams remaining. Celebrities are no different. Though Louisville's own Jennifer Lawrence may be left without a team to root for, other members of the A-list have fared far luckier.
From former athletes to proud graduates to bandwagoners, let's run down the stars cheering for each Final Four team during the 2014 tournament.

Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 – only her second season on the series – with Donald Driver. The Australia native will blog for PEOPLE about competing with Big Time Rush band member James Maslow during the show's 18th season.
There have been so many changes on the show this season, but I'm happy with them.
I think Erin [Andrews] did an amazing job at the premiere. I think she adds like this girl-next-door vibe to the show. I think Dancing with the Stars wanted to create a new audience this season and really liven it up a little more. I think she's helping to do that. Her interviews are great and she's really down to earth. She's really conversational.
